The LAPD Had a Wild Town Hall About the Shooting of Brandon Glenn

The unusual twist in this particular incident is that LAPD Chief Charlie Beck is being criticized by the local police union for being too hard on his cops. Protesters called for Beck’s resignation when another unarmed black homeless man was shot in March, and he defended the LAPD. This time, after viewing the footage of the shooting, Chief Beck told the press that, so far, he hadn’t seen the “extraordinary circumstances” that might justify a killing. Craig Lally of the union representing LAPD officers called the comments “completely irresponsible” at this stage of the investigation.
