David Lacey showed exceptionally poor judgement during the incident, confronting the Los Angeles BLM protestors with his finger on the trigger of a firearm. The protestors don’t appear to have been engaging in illegal activity- it’s legal to solicit most residences through ringing on the doorbell if you aren’t asked to leave, although the protestors remained after David Lacey told them to “get off of my porch.

David Lacey’s attorney, Samuel Tyre, released a statement expressing his disapproval that Becerra chose to file cirminal charges in the incident.

My client and I are disappointed that the Attorney General’s Office felt that the conduct at issue amounted to criminal behavior.  We disagree entirely with their assessment, but we have the utmost faith in the justice system, and we are confident that the correct result will be reached.
