LAPD Swarm Home of BLM Activist Melina Abdullah With Guns Over False Hostages Report

Los Angeles, CA–Dozens of police officers swarmed the home of Black Lives Matter organizer Melina Abdullah around 9:00 a.m Wednesday morning, demanding she come outside with her hands up. 

The incident happened right before Abdullah was scheduled to speak at a press conference on Cal State University’s campus, in support of her being chosen as the Founding Dean of CSULA’s Ethnic Studies program. 

In an Instagram live video Abdullah streamed of the incident, police are seen pointing guns in the direction of her home, yelling demands. Abdullah’s quick thinking kept police from entering the home where her three children were present — fearing their tactics would only escalate the situation. 

In her live video, Abdullah tells her children the names of people she wanted them to call right away. A few moments later, you hear Abdullah weighing her options.
