“Justice for Africa” – Photos and Video from LAPD Shooting Protest

Jason Nellis Arrival in Los AngelesCurrently, Jason Nellis, who blogs at “The World as seen by Jazoof” and has also been involved with Nevada Cop Block and other Las Vegas area groups, is in Los Angeles, where protests over the shooting of an unarmed homeless man by the Los Angeles Police are taking place at the LAPD headquarters. These are photos and videos he has taken there. We should have an update with commentary and more details at some point later. (This is a cross-post from CopBlock.org)

If you personally have any video, photos, or experiences to share from the protests (or any previous incidents with the LAPD) you can share them via the CopBlock.org Submissions Page. In addition, included at the bottom of this post is a list of California-area Cop Block groups that you could connect with if you want to promote police accountability in your area and help protect your neighbors from police violence.

As you can see in the screenshot included, this latest shooting of an unarmed person by the LAPD is not going unnoticed by the people in the city (Or elsewhere as a matter of fact.):

“As soon as I got to Union Station people around me were playing the video repeatedly. This is kinda surreal.”

Note: Any commentary included with the photos comes from the description included with them by Jason, unless in parenthesis.

Guess who the native on the crazy trip (Jason) walked up to: (Spoiler: Adam Kokesh)

FUCK, both times I rushed to the nearest outlet to charge my stuff in order to hurry back and record more, girls were arrested. This time the two female friends who I interviewed in a video, after the first one Lissa Bissa who is in earlier videos. One of the last two got taken down and manhandled by 5 cops (I believe in riot gear, they carried it out and can be vaguely seen in this quick shot I got).

    The guy had a warrant, he was fighting and when the officers arrived, he started swinging at them. The tazer was used and didn’t work. The guy grabbed for the officer’s gun and he was shot. He chose to try and grab the officer’s gun.

      Actually you have no idea other than you heard. Figure this no one respects your opinion.

    Now this is what the other side has turned up on the deceased. He was an illegal alien living under a false name that had been in prison for bank robbery and spent some time in a mental institution.
