If D.A. Jackie Lacey won't charge the LAPD officer who shot Brendon Glenn, some ask: When would she prosecute?
Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey's recent decision not to charge an LAPD officer who fatally shot a homeless man on the Venice Boardwalk in 2015 illustrates how rare criminal prosecutions are for on-duty police shootings.
The decision not to file charges over the 2015 on-duty shooting bucks an unprecedented call by LAPD Chief Charlie Beck to prosecute one of his own for deadly use of force.
