Remember the St. Louis couple that tried to defend their home from a throng of protesters? They were charged with a felony by an overzealous local DA. Now, a Los Angeles DA’s husband is facing charges for pointing a gun at BLM protesters who came to his front door.
KTLA is reporting that the husband of LA District Attorney Jackie Lacey has been charged because he pointed a gun at BLM protesters who showed up on his front doorstep in the early morning of March 2nd. He said he felt threatened and told the group he would shoot them.
The state attorney general filed charges in LA Superior Court against David Lacey for assault with a firearm.
.Jackie Lacey released a statement on Monday:
“The events that took place earlier this year have caused my family immense pain, My husband 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.”
Doesn’t this man have a right to defend his property and family? The trend of overzealous local officials is disturbing because any American should have the right to defend their home from a threat.
Our previous report with video from March:
Black Lives Matter’s Melina Abdullah thought it would be a great idea to show up on the doorstep of Los Angeles DA Jackie Lacey’s home on Monday morning. Not so fast…
The DA’s husband wasn’t having any of the Black Lives Matter showing up at his home. He pulled a gun and told the BLM representative to get off his porch and leave the premises, or he’d shoot.
Melina Abdullah posted the video on Twitter: “I’ll shoot you. I don’t care who you are.”
I’m front of DA Jackie Lacey’s house for that community meeting she promised with the @BLMLA crew. Rang her bell to invite her.

As it turns out, DA Lacey had agreed to meet with BLM that morning but didn’t show. Abdullah was trying to have a chance to speak with her, so she went to Lacey’s private residence.
