*A coalition of clergy and civil rights leaders are calling upon L.A. County D.A. Jackie Lacey to follow the recommendation of LAPD, Chief Charlie Beck and file criminal charges against LAPD officer Clifford Procter for the murder of Brendon Glenn.

Proctor shot and killed Glenn who was unarmed and homeless on May 5th, 2015. On the 2-year anniversary of Glenn’s killing Our city is still waiting on justice and for Lacey to simply follow the recommendation of LAPD Chief Beck.

“LAPD investigators concluded that Glenn was on his stomach, attempting to push himself off the ground, when Proctor shot Glenn in the back twice.

“After reviewing video, witness accounts and other evidence, investigators determined Glenn was not trying to take Proctor’s gun or his partners weapon. D.A. Lacey should be ashamed of herself for allowing this case to drag on in her office The LAPD Police commission ruled the Glenn shooting was out of policy.

“And for the first-time Chief Beck called for criminal charges to be filed against one of his officers in a fatal shooting. Lacey has the videotape of Glenn’s murder as well as all the recommendation of Chief Beck that Proctor be criminally charged.

“There is no excuse after two years for Lacey’s continued stonewalling in this case and her continued reluctance to charge rouge law enforcement officers” — Najee Ali, director of Project Islamic Hope
