VIDEO: District Attorney's Husband Points Gun At Black Lives Matter Protesters

Los Angeles DA Jackie Lacey’s husband was filmed pointing a gun at Black Lives Matter protesters on their front porch.

Los Angeles, CA – Police were called to Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s home early Monday morning after her husband pointed a gun at Black Lives Matter protesters banging on their front door (video below).

The incident occurred at about 5:40 a.m. on March 3 after Black Lives Matter protesters showed up at the district attorney’s home before sunrise, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Protesters told reporters at the scene that they rang the doorbell and Lacey’s husband opened it with a gun in his hand.

One of the protesters posted cell phone video of the incident to social media.

“This morning Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s husband pulled a gun out on Black Lives Matter activists who protested his wife in front of their house,” Jasmyne Cannick tweeted.

The video showed a bald African American man in a black shirt standing in the threshold of a home pointing a black handgun in the direction of a group of protesters on his front porch.

“Right now. Get lost!” the man ordered the protesters trespassing on his porch.

“Good morning!” a woman off camera chirped in response.

“Get off of my porch,” the man said in the video.

“Are you going to shoot me?” the same woman asked.

“I will shoot you,” he replied. “Get off of my porch.”

“Can you tell Jackie Lacey that we’re here?” the woman continued, undaunted.

“I don’t care who you are. Get off my porch right now,” the man said in the video.

“We’ll get off your porch when you tell…” she began.

“We’re calling the police right now,” the man said and then shut the front door, the video showed.

“Good, good,” the woman said with a shaky voice. “He pulled a gun and pointed it at my chest.”

Then she started yelling at the house again.

“We’re here for the community meeting Jackie Lacey,” the woman hollered.

And then the rest of the demonstrators started chanting “Jackie Lacey will go” as the video ended.

"For clarity for folks outside of Los Angeles who don't know the history, @BLMLA (Black Lives Matter Los Angeles) has been trying to meet with their elected District Attorney for years. She hasn't met with the Black community since 2016," Cannick tweeted.

LAPD Public Information Officer Lizeth Lomeli said no one was arrested during the protest, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The protest occurred one day before Los Angeles voters head to the polls to vote in a hotly-contested district attorney’s race.

Lacey, a two-term incumbent, is popular with the law enforcement community and has been accused of not charging enough police officers with excessive force, the Los Angeles Times reported.

As such, she has become the target of anti-police groups such as Black Lives Matter, who have protested numerous campaign events and the debate.

Don't blame the guy a bit. You show up on MY property at the butt-crack of dawn, DEMANDING to see my spouse, and REFUSING to leave I would also point a gun at you. In fact, you might even get shot. Or maybe I'll get a bunch of friends and show up at YOUR door at 5:30 in the morning. What are you gonna do? You won't call the cops because, according to you, they're corrupt. And you won't pull a gun because you don't own one. Really sucks when the shoe is on the other foot.

I could care less that he scared them off his porch but rest assured he and his WIFE knew who they group of turds were. I’m glad he wasn’t Caucasian or a Republican his house would be demolished by know and he would be charged with 25 hate crimes!!

Serious mistake in the article. 'this took place at approximately 5:40am on March 3'.
I'm on the east coast and it is only 5:56am on March 3. According to the article, this hasn't happened yet.

So the would rather get shot than get off of their porch? Guess THEIR Black lives didn't matter to them.

It says in a public place. The front porch of their residence is not a public place and there’s a MOB of protesters . We all know what usually happens with mobs.

We all know BLM aren't the nicest of ppl,that said they should have went to her office,that's what grown ups do. When they trespass on private property in a group of angry individuals,ppl absolutely should protect their family,themselves from an angry group. I do not blame the homeowner for showing a gun in hopes they would leave elected officials have an office to convey ppl's grievance s. They had no right to trespass on private property. I probably would have done the same thing,when a group shows up,you're already outnumbered.

I would have to agree...these BLM "protestors" came "looking for a confrontation" at that hour and at the door of the home, not the office. They really are lucky they were not shot at!

Lordy! He beez profiling! Nah. Just aware of the demographic that was on his lawn. Good thing he and his wife were not white. She would have resigned in disgrace for "racism" by now.

He shouldn't have pointed a gun at anyone; having it with him is completely reasonable, but not aiming it anyone who wasn't a threat.

All the protesters should have been arrested for trespassing, and harassment. You want to protest on the sidewalk? fine, provided you aren't preventing their vehicles from leaving nor actually on private property. You want to come to the DA's office and protest? go nuts. You want to go to court and disrupt a trail that the DA is prosecuting? have at it

you want to go to a person's private residence, at 5:30am, ring the doorbell, and shout from the porch that you demand to see the DA? GFTO. That's harassment, and you should be arrested for it. LAPD should have arrested everyone on the porch.

Idiot protesters should have stayed off his property. He was defending his home and family.

while answering the door with a gun is NOT a crime, pointing it at people is! he should be charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon.
if a group of cops came to your door and you answered it the same as this idiot, what do you think would happen?

This is so wrong on many accounts. But of course the perpetrator is black, black DA's hubby, and this happened in L.A., CA. Nothing to see here. Move along, folks.

This invasion of private property by Black LIES Matter thugs was a cheap political stunt by one of today's election challengers to LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey named Rachel Rossi. Rossi's Communications Director Jasmyne Cannick was among the BLM protesters who trespassed on Lacey's private property and is the one who took the video of Mr Lacey pointing the gun and telling the thugs to get off his porch. The video went viral with the intention of boosting Ms Lacey's far-left, cop-hating election opponent but early voting returns show incumbent DA Lacey with a significant lead that will hopefully assure her of a third consecutive term as LA County DA. She has served as DA since 2012 and has never prosecuted any LA law-enforcement officers (which is why BLM hates her).

This mans actions are illegal within the State of California and therefore should obviously be charged for his crimes. California Penal Codr 417 makes Brandishing a Weapon, Gun or Firearm in a situation like this illegal. There is no way any regular Joe off the street would avoid prosecution in a situation like this. You are not legally allowed in the Great State of California to protect defend property only yourself and other individuals from deadly threats and those which may cause great bodily harm. Arrest and prosecute this man he has proven within this video that he is a danger to the public.

You make some good points. In CA, when I was an LEO there, the Penal Code defined assault, which could include pointing a weapon at someone, as threatening or making the victim believe they were in danger (did not require physical contact, which was a battery). In MO, this could come under Unlawful Use of A Weapon, which includes just carrying a concealed firearm, shooting one, brandishing one, while intoxicated or otherwise in an unlawful manner (subject to the officer's idea of what is unlawful unless specified.) After I retired, I have not kept up with new changes in either state, of which I was a LEO in both (Chief when I retired in MO).

@Jim H. - Virginia US I am very serious. They moved beyond the "protected" area of the sidewalk and right up to the home. They would have deserved the shoot 1st ask questions later part. Put aside the bull horn and other crap the minute they crossed the threshold of sidewalk to house is the moment they signed their death warrant. Again at that hour what person in their woken up mind would be able to see the difference between a mailman and a mob standing at their door. The fact his wife is a dumbass Dem doesn't give anyone a right to disturb another. If a group of Conservatives did this to lets say Ted Cruz all hell would break on both sides. He had a right to shoot if he really wanted to and yes his holding of the gun was "messy" at best but again at that hour with that many morons facing him and screaming at him and bull horning him they are lucky all he did was hold it in a messy way and not shot them with it!
