Protestors Threaten to Set LA News Photographer on Fire

A protest in South LA got out of hand and most of the anchor was pointed right at the media.

The protestors gathered at the site where Ezell Ford, a 25-year-old man who was described by family members as mentally ill, was killed by two LAPD officers on Aug. 11.

What began as a peaceful remembrance alongside a make-shift memorial for Ford later turned confrontational when some of the demonstrators threatened members of the media covering the vigil.

One of the protesters shoved a lighter in the face of a KTLA photographer and threatened to set him on fire if he didn’t stop videotaping the vigil.
