HeadlineSep 11, 2020

In Los Angeles, police fired tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets to clear demonstrations while arresting 35 people this week, as protesters continue to demand justice for Dijon Kizzee, a 29-year-old Black bicyclist who was shot dead by police after being pulled over for an alleged bike violation in late August. Protesters want L.A. District Attorney Jackie Lacey to resign and for the officers involved to be fired and criminally prosecuted.
