Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, right, speaks as Police Chief Charlie Beck listens at left at a news conference to discuss mid year crime statistics in Los Angeles Wednesday, July 8, 2015. Crime has increased 13 percent in Los Angeles in the first six months of the year, ending more than a decade of declines in the nation’s second-largest city, according to statistics released by the Los Angeles Police Department on Wednesday. Garcetti said “this is bad news” but that Los Angeles remains one of the safest large cities in the U.S. Beck partially attributed the crime spike to increases in homelessness, gang crime and domestic violence.(AP Photo/Nick Ut)

Beck says the actions of a South Carolina police officer who was captured on cellphone video fatally shooting a fleeing unarmed man were criminal. Beck told reporters Thursday, April 9, 2015 that he’d watched the video and that the officers’ actions appeared to be a criminal act “well beyond” any policies at the LAPD and he would’ve also had the officer arrested.
