Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer was joined by LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, District Attorney Jackie Lacey and Assistant Sheriff Anthony La Berge at City Hall to assure the public that they will put their resources toward prosecuting people who perpetrate hate crimes.

Feuer said victims of hate crimes need to know that we will stand up for them and that were here to protect them, that we will vigorously prosecute hate crimes. Lacey said hate crimes committed against anyone in our community will be backed with a strong response by law enforcement and prosecutors.
