L.A. Civil Rights Leader Discusses the Possible Racially Motivated Arson Attack at Ramona Gardens
Will Call on D.A. to Conduct fast Track Hate Crimes Investigation
L.A. Civil rights leader Earl Ofari Hutchinson will discuss the Ramona Gardens Housing Complex possible arson attack reportedly on black and Latino families last Sunday May 11 on his Hutchinson Report show, Friday, May 16, 2014 at 9:00 AM PST on KTYM 1460 AM and streamed globally on www.ktym.com
He will call on Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey to conduct a fast track hate crimes investigation into the attack. Two black families suffered arson attacks there in years past.
"The possible racially motivated fire at the apartment of a black and Latino family in Boyle Heights demands fast action by the D.A.’s office to determine if race was the motive in the fire,” says Hutchinson, “If so the D.A. must bring hate crime charges against the perpetrators. This will send the strong message that hate attacks will be vigorously prosecuted in L.A. County.”
