Earl Ofari Hutchinson demands District Attorney Hate Crimes Investigation of Ramona Gardens Fire-bombings

As Mayor Eric Garcetti and CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar remain mostly silent regarding the Ramona Gardens Fire-bombing Attacks targeting African-American Families, local Civil Rights Activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson is demanding a District Attorney Investigation of possible Hate Crimes.

** Blogger's Note: The Ramona Gardens Community remains tense but calm as prominent African-American Leaders begin to speak out and demand investigated action. Longtime local Civil Rights Activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling upon Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey to initiate a Hate Crime Investigation of the recent Fire-bombing Attacks within the Ramona Gardens Housing Project that targeted African-American Families (view press release below). Meanwhile, Mayor Eric Garcetti made his first public comments regarding the attacks at last evening's NAACP Awards Dinner, referring to the "challenge of recent events in Northeast LA" (without condemning the attacks outright). As for CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar, the silence of disgrace continues as no public utterances about the attacks have not been made---Scott Johnson
 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.”
