The officers involved in the shooting of Ezell Ford in South LA on Aug. 11 were Officers Sharlton Wampler and Antonio Villegas, both assigned to the Newton Area Gang Enforcement Detail, police said in a statement.

The officers shot him after they said he ignored their instructions and went for one of their guns during a struggle.

Civil Rights Leaders to Challenge Investigation Into Shooting Death

[LA] Civil Rights Leaders to Challenge Investigation Into Shooting Death
Los Angeles civil rights leaders have promised to challenge the LAPD investigation into the shooting death of Ezell Ford “every step of the way.” Beverly White reports for NBC4 News at 6 p.m. from South Los Angeles Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson, the president of the Los Angeles Urban Roundtable, said conflicting accounts of the shooting have emerged. Witnesses said Ford was not resisting, that he had mental challenges, and that police officers in the area aware of him and his condition, he said.

The release of the names comes after mounting pressure from protesters who have taken to the streets in front of the LAPD’s Newton Station to decry the shooting.

Natalia Kills ran her mouth today about how “All About That Bass” is a song that bullies and victimizes thin girls. I then ran my mouth about how that is a load of bullshit on a variety of levels. (x)
