DA memo on LAPD Officer Clifford Proctor
Last year, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office declined to pursue charges of perjury or filing a false police against Clifford Proctor but faulted the officer for not including statements from two witnesses that he “should reasonably have known … were material to the investigation and should have been included in the report.”
Proctor fatally shot an unarmed homeless man in Venice earlier this month, prompting heated criticism of the LAPD. The fatal shooting was captured by a security camera on a nearby building. After watching the recording, Chief Charlie Beck said that he was “very concerned” about the incident. The recording has not been made public.
