We’re not against the police.  We’re not against the police department, but we are against police who commit misconduct (and those who help to cover it up).


Well it seems that the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles has issued subpoenas for a People’s Tribunal in the case of the death of Ezell Ford.  Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck and police officers Sharlton Wampler and Antonio Villegas have been summoned to appear before a court of the people on November 14, 2015.

Earlier today they took the subpoenas for Wampler and Villegas over to Newton Division in South L.A.

Unfortunately, it looks like they weren’t able to serve Chief Beck as he was a no show at today’s meeting of the Board of Police Commissioners. Add to that, the news is reporting that Beck is on vacay.

So I need an itsy bitsy favor, kay?

I am going to post Chief Beck’s subpoena below and I need for my friends up on the 10th Floor to just casually place this on his desk. Remember to use your gloves that don’t leave behind fingerprints or any DNA.  You know the drill.  But yeah, I need for you to leave this on Beck’s desk for me.  If you can manage that and take a picture of the subpoena on his desk–dinner is on me.  Now I’m sure Black Lives Matter will have no problem trying Beck in absentia, but let’s see if we can get him there.

Here’s a link to a pdf copy of the subpoena for you to download and print.

Now while I do believe that Black lives matter, contrary to popular belief, all Blacks are not inducted into the group at birth so no–I am not a member of Black Lives Matter’s Los Angeles chapter.  However, I’m in the camp of folks who would like to see Chief Beck appear before a court of the people to answer for his many many actions and it’s for those reasons that I am actually going to try and help them get this subpoena over to Beck.  So to my friends in the Department, anything you can do would be greatly appreciated. Team work, it makes everything work.

    Nobody’s commented on this because nobody knows WTF it is. Sounds tantamount to the Sovereign Citizens issuing a subpoena to George Washington. Please tell me you haven’t lost your relevancy, please tell me since officer BS isn’t at work to slip you “information”, (some good, some bad) you’ve sunk to this level? Because not even your most ardent followers care about this.

  • Looks like a subpoena.

    Why do you think you speak for anyone but yourself?

    Ezell Ford is not nobody. The death of Ezell Ford is not just another unarmed young black man shot and killed by the police in the ‘hood.

    Ezell Ford is connected to
    Los Angeles election politics, Los Angeles budget and spending politics, Antonio Villaraigosa, Janice Hahn, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, D.A. Steve Cooley, D.A. Jacqueline Lacey, LAPD Chief William Bratton, Deputy Chief Kenneth Garner(deceased), Deputy Chief Charlie Beck, Detective Meghan Aguilar, Christopher J. Dorner, Watts Gang Task Force, Gang Truce and Intervention Workers, The Los Angeles City Housing Authority, the Redevelopment of Jordan Downs Projects, the East Coast Crips, the Grape Street Crips, Captain Phillip Tingerides, the assassination of Leroy Hill, the Bounty Hunter Bloods.

    Can someone please explain how the Police Commission, members of the press, members of the public with half a brain left in their heads, or anyone else can sit there and read the LAPD investigation report on Ezell Ford while keeping a straight face?
    The story they are telling is not just unlikely, not just improbable.
    Its preposterous.
    Giving the benefit of the doubt to the police, their story is still preposterous.
    It contradicts the laws of gravity, the laws of physics, the laws of mass and velocity, the science of the human anatomy, the laws of time and space.
    How anyone can read that report and nod their head in acceptance? They have got to be smoking something stronger than we’ve ever heard of before.
    How any educated person can read that report and look at themselves in a mirror and say “yeah, O.K. That sounds about right. I can buy that.” –
    is a an absolute mystery.

    Charlie Beck pulled out all of the stops to get the best LAPD investigation report possible that he can use to find his officers not at fault for the unpremeditated murder of Ezell Ford.
    To produce that report he had to include everything that could be seen as evidence which supports the official story.
    And he had to exclude anything which might contradict or cast doubt upon the official story.
    He had to leave out any reports from or interviews with the paramedics who treated and transported Ezell Ford.
    He had to leave out any reports from or interviews with the ER operating room physicians.
    He had to leave out the L.A. County Coroner’s autopsy report.
    He had to leave out the clothing worn by Ezell Ford at the time he was shot.
    He had to leave out all the ballistics analysis.
    Specifically, the medical examiner recovered one complete bullet from the body at autopsy – no ballistics and no mention of that bullet in the LAPD investigation.
    The autopsy did not recover any part of the bullet fired into Ezell Ford’s back. So what happened to that bullet?
    As far as the LAPD investigation is concerned, that bullet was fired into Ford’s back and disappeared forever.
    Its not of any concern.

    The official story found in the LAPD investigation report on the shooting of Ezell Ford is a lie.
    To summarize – it is a huge sack of prima facie B.S.
    And I will prove it to you right now.
    Officer A is on the ground. Ezell Ford is on top of him. Ford is trying to pull the Officer’s gun out of its holster.
    Officer A is trying to push the gun back down into the holster. Oficer A uses his free hand to unbutton or unzip his shirt(while Ford lay over him) and then to expose his ballistic vest and backup gun. He is able to withdraw the backup gun from its holster, and —STOP! Stop right there!
    If Officer A shoots right-handed then his regulation gun is holstered on his right side on the waist belt. His back-up gun is holstered on his left side below or behind the armpit.
    If he is using his right hand to push his regulation gun down into the holster to prevent Ezell Ford from taking it, then he must use his left hand to extract the back-up gun.
    You try it. How easy was that?
    There are other combinations of arms and hands to pull and push the guns that we could consider, but I just gave you the easisest one for Officer A to try to do in real life.
    Not B.S. LAPD investigation Police Commission fantasylannd.

    The LAPD investigation report presented to the LAPD Board of Commissioners at their meeting in June represents the high point in the official explanation and justification of the shooting and killing of Ezell Ford.

    From here on out, its all down hill.

    I repeat – its all down hill from here.
