Approaching Left on Left Purge: Charging Husband of LA County DA with Assault Edition

The California attorney general’s office charged the husband of LA County District Attorney on Monday with three counts of assault with a firearm. Protesters led by Black Lives Matter co-founder Melina Abdullah knocked on the Laceys’ front door shortly after 5:30 a.m. on March 2. It was the second time demonstrators gathered at the house. According to Ms. Abdullah, David Lacey opened the door and pointed the weapon at those who were gathered outside. According to DA Jackie Lacey, “My husband [David Lacey] acted in fear for my safety after we were subjected to months of harassment that included a death threat no less than a week earlier. My husband felt that we were in danger and acted out of genuine concern for our well being.”
