"L.A. police chief booed at community meeting"

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police Chief Charlie Beck was greeted by boos, whistles and chants of "justicia" by an angry Spanish-speaking crowd at a community meeting Wednesday intended to quell violence that erupted over the past two nights after police fatally shot a knife-wielding man.
A crowd of about 300 packed a school in the Westlake neighborhood where Manuel Jamines, 37, was shot to death Sunday by an officer after he allegedly lunged toward the officer with a switchblade.

Beck was jeered after defending officers by reading a witness's account of how Jamines threatened two women.

Beck said the witness, a neighborhood resident who was not named, reported to three bicycle officers that a man with blood on his hands tried to stab her and pregnant woman next to her.

Can't please the mob mentality.

If I was the mayor, I'd order a lockdown for the 300 and have agents check for their immigrant status.

The Mayor(Antonio Villaraigosa) just happens to be the former leader of Mecha and promotes anything the illegals want.

I was just watching the news on this story and the officer who killed that Guatamalan was Hispanic. His last name is Hernandez. At least they can't turn this into a race issue.

All 3 officers involved were Hispanic.

The other officers involved were Steven Rodriguez and Paris Pineda, both 5-year veterans of the department. All the officers were Latino and speak Spanish.
