Not sure it's mentioned in the documentary but the neighborhood is the neighborhood of a city councilperson who was and remains an advocate for defending the police.

It's an important angle to the insane maliciousnes of this maneuver.

Edit: Defunding* thank you commentor

Defending or defunding?

Big difference in that little typo.

So take a councilman that is gung-ho about defund the police, was instrumental to cutting the LAPD budget by $150M, and then the (as is typical) lies from the LAPD about how they exploded the fireworks in the neighborhood "because they were too volatile" to take elsewhere (while ignoring that the cop that loaded the truck did so with bare hands and not wearing a bomb suit) and you can see there might be a malicious purpose to the organized crime/protection racket that is the LAPD.

I assume you’re talking about the same person?
