Black man arrested for protecting his wife from Black Lives Matter
When Black Lives Matter protesters trespassed on Jackie Lacey’s property, stood on the porch of her home demanding that she come out and answer their demands, her husband, David Lacey, pulled his gun and demanded they get off his porch or he would shoot them. The gun looks like a Colt 45, a good choice. RedState has the story:
David Lacey, who confronted trespassing Black Lives Matter protesters on his front porch, has been charged three counts of assault after he pointed his gun at the intruders. He was attempting to get them to leave after his wife had been hit with multiple death threats in the weeks prior.
KTLA has the report.
The husband of Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey has been charged with pointing a gun at Black Lives Matter members who demonstrated outside the couple’s home the day before she faced a primary election in March.
The state attorney general filed three misdemeanor charges Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court against David Lacey for assault with a firearm for the March 2 incident.
Lacey, 66, pointed a gun at demonstrators who protested outside the couple’s home before dawn on March 2 and said “I will shoot you,” according to video of the incident.
This being a California news station, it’s no surprise they don’t tell the whole story. As the viral video showed, these protesters were on his porch, not just demonstrating “outside his home.” They were demanding to see the man’s wife and would not take no for an answer. He pulled his gun in an obvious case of self-defense.

Black Lives Matter apparently hates Mrs. Lacey because she hasn’t been randomly filing charges against police who are involved in fatal shootings.
Protesters claim she has failed to hold law enforcement accountable in fatal shootings. She has charged one officer in a fatal on-duty killing, but has declined to file charges in more than 340 other fatal shootings.
Was there any reason to file charges in the other 340? That’s of course not touched on, but the clear indication is no. Lacey, being a Democrat politician, does not come from a background that would indicate she’s somehow covering for the police. It seems she’s simply been doing her job, which is not how things are supposed to work in the universe BLM is trying to create. Prosecutors are supposed to be activists, selectively charging cases to push political narratives, not actual adherents to the law.
Perhaps the most ridiculous thing about this incident is that Mrs. Lacey actually felt the need to apologize for her husband attempting to protect her.
Jackie Lacey offered an emotional apology at the time, saying her husband told her he pulled the gun and told protesters to leave.
Just insanity. What is so difficult about saying that it’s not acceptable for “protesters” to invade the property of others? Every time someone bends the knee to these people, the just get more emboldened. And what is the result? An attempt to imprison a black man for protecting his wife in the name of black lives mattering. I also wouldn’t assume this move by the State Attorney General isn’t political. Mrs. Lacey is currently in a run-off, being opposed by someone who pledges to “reform” the office and no doubt push the BLM narrative.
Regardless, it’s worth noting that this is the danger of living in these heavily Democrat controlled areas. They will not uphold your rights and will in fact attempt to throw you in jail for exercising them in their most basic form. Everything is political. Mr. Lacey did not hurt anyone here. He did not discharge his weapon. He simply tried to protect his wife and property. If that’s not allowed in this country anymore, then we don’t have a country anymore. We have anarchy disguised with layers of ineffective government.
I sincerely hope Mr. Lacey prevails in court, but it should never have gotten this far. It’s a disgrace that it has.
That this has come to a head while she is fighting for her political life as Los Angeles’ top prosecutor against George Soros funded George Gascon, is particularly troubling. Although a Democrat Mrs. Lacey has done a reasonable job prosecuting criminals as District Attorney during the two terms she has so far served. George Gascon is a creature of Soros’ well funded effort to eviscerate law enforcement by installing DAs that refuse to prosecute crime. The Los Angeles Police Protective League is firmly against him as he would make Portland and Seattle style riots the order of the day in Los Angeles and encourage pubic defecation a fixture as he did in San Francisco.
Los Angeles—The negative impacts of George Gascon’s Proposition 47 are so obvious, his own campaign spokesflak told a Los Angeles media outlet that right now the “reformed” criminal justice system is not working, that drug treatment doesn’t work, and that addicts will fall out of it. This is the system George Gascon sold to voters.
In 2014, then San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon conned California voters into supporting Proposition 47, deceitfully named the “Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act.” Since then, homelessness in Los Angeles County has skyrocketed. California’s methamphetamine and opioid crises is ripping families apart as tens of millions of dollars’ worth of thefts from neighborhood mom-and-pop stores to large retailers have become commonplace.
Gascon’s law took away mandatory drug treatment as a consequence for possession of illegal drugs, and we are all now paying the price.
“George Gascon is trying to cast himself as a criminal justice reformer, when the facts are as San Francisco’s District Attorney his office was heavily criticized for hiding evidence, trumping up charges on suspects and concocting crime stats to improve his personal appearance,” said Craig Lally, President of the Los Angeles Police Protective League. “He conned Californians into voting for Proposition 47, telling us we would be safer; we can’t let him con his way into becoming our district attorney,” added Lally.
The LAPPL is releasing a 30-second TV ad that focuses attention on Gascon’s failed tenure as San Francisco’s DA. The ad titled “The Con is On with George Gascon” will begin airing on Los Angeles TV and Cable stations on Friday.
Sure enough, here it is.
