CBSLA.com — More than 500 people rallied outside LAPD headquarters Saturday to protest recent deadly police shootings in LA and Ferguson, Missouri.
The protesters also marched around various downtown streets chanting for justice and answers in the two high profile shootings — unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson and Ezell Ford, a 25-year-old mentally-challenged man in Los Angeles on Monday evening.
