Tonight in South L.A., the Los Angeles City Human Relations Commission held a meeting on the LAPD’s use of force and racial profiling. The facility was packed, wall-to-wall. Community members were given little time to address the HRC, and roughly three-quarters of the way through the meeting, the twenty foot space separating the attendees from the HRC was taken over by the community, paving the way for a free-flowing discussion. Three members of the Human Relations Commission stayed to hear stories of life under LAPD rule. This was the first in a series of meetings the HRC is holding with the city of Los Angeles.
