**Note** This is an update to a previous post featuring photos and video from the “Justice for Africa” protests in Los Angeles over the killing of yet another unarmed person: This update includes additional photos and video from 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.
In addition, there are also photos from Ballentine, who is a member of the Sunset Activist Collective. As a member of the “Sunset 5,” Ballentine was one of those arrested by Las Vegas police in 2013 in retaliation for publicly exposing the murders and complete lack of accountability within the LVMPD, during Nevada Cop Block chalking protests.
Once again, 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.

“LAPD March 3/3- How cops aggravated the situation”
They knew he was mentally ill and the incident with the homeless woman was not violent. They aggravated the situation and brought it about.

Other mentally ill and homeless people on skid row being murdered by police lately- from memorial rally 3/3
“Die-in at LAPD for Brother Africa and all victims”
“LAPD Protester Lissa Arrested- Friends ask why”
Lissa Bissa of the Anti-Media arrested when trying to walk into a public Police Commission meeting. I just missed the arrest. Cops refuse to answer questions. OK this is after the first arrest I missed. Lissa Bissa tried going into public police commission meeting. These are her two friends. They then got arrested between this and the next video. Again I missed that, and almost all media was gone, but Adam Kokesh got what happened to this girl after this on tape.
“3 Arrested at LAPD HQ, 19 year-old girl roughed up”
When I returned from charging for more video… the two girls arrested, one attacked by 5 cops whom I saw leave carrying riot gear… leaving only Amari Shakur.
