DA’s Husband Pulls Gun On BLM Protesters Protesting On His Porch
The husband of Los Angeles County DA Jackie Lacey pulled a gun on Black Lives Matter protesters who showed up on the couple’s doorstep early Monday morning.
Melina Abdullah, a Cal State Los Angeles professor, rings the doorbell, and a man opens the door. He points a gun at her and others on the porch.
Video from the scene showed about a dozen protesters out on the sidewalk chanting and holding signs.

Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey held a press conference on Monday to address an incident from that morning, during which her husband confronted a group of Black Lives Matter protesters gathered on the couple’s front porch.
During the press conference, Lacey revealed that her husband was “profoundly sorry” for the way the situation unfolded, and that he “meant no one any harm.” Although no physical injuries have been reported, Lacey herself has apologized in case anyone was harmed by the incident.
Lacey also revealed that protesters have been intimidating her in public and in private, including sending death threats, and have shown up at her home before.
“Up until now, I have not really wanted to share with you what it’s been like,” said Lacey. “As District Attorney of LA County, I’ve received threats, some of them death threats. I have been followed, photographed while with my family, confronted at an art museum, confronted at fundraisers.” More
How embarrassing for BLM. No one listens to them because they are protesting for criminals, thugs and the average law-abiding citizen can see right through it. They should be protesting all the homeless black people dying on the streets on LA if they really want to make a difference.
