A small group of IE CopWatchers attended the Moreno Valley city council meeting last night to protest the shooting death of the handcuffed 18-year-old Lamon Haslip and to commemorate his life. Surprisingly enough, the P-E gave us some coverage! No credit, but coverage, at least. Here is a link:

A group of protesters showed up at City Hall Wednesday, Jan. 2, to demand justice for Lamon Haslip, the handcuffed 18-year-old Ontario man who was shot to death by police last week.
Haslip was shot as police say he rolled on his side while he lay on the ground. An officer chased and handcuffed Haslip after he ran from a car that police stopped in an alleged gun incident.
Police say they found a gun on Haslip after he was shot.
City Police Chief Joel Ontiveros would not release any more information about the incident when my colleague John Asbury contacted him on Wednesday. Ontiveros told Asbury that updates would be provided, but he wouldn’t say when.
