*A coalition of South L.A. civil rights organizations are calling upon Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to take a stand for transparency and social justice and demand that LAPD Chief Charlie Beck release the videotape shooting of Brendan Glenn the homeless man who was shot to death last May in Venice, CA by LAPD officer Clifford Procter.

“Mayor Garcetti demonstrated courage and conviction when he ordered Chief Beck to release the autopsy report of Ezell Ford who was shot to death in a controversial shooting by the LAPD last year. It’s important that Mayor Garcetti understand that he can’t allow Chief Beck to withold this videotape. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel allowed the Chicago police chief to withhold the videotaped shooting of Laquan Mc Donald the young African American killed in a controversial shooting by Chicago police and near riots almost broke out after community members saw the tape a year later against the wishes of the Mayor and Police Chief. Mayor Garcetti should demand full transparency from all his department heads including Chief Beck.” stated Pastor K.W. Tulloss President of the LA National Action Network.
“It’s absolutely crucial that LAPD officials make full and timely public disclosure of videotapes either from private sources or body cams worn by officers of controversial use of force incidences such as the Brendon K. Glenn slaying on a timely basis,” “This strikes to the heart of the issue of fulfilling the public’s right to know as well as transparency in abuse cases.” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson.
