Tony Hawk called into a live Zoom meeting with LAPD Chief Michael Moore on Tuesday and called for him to resign — claiming he’s lost control.
Chief Moore — along with several officials — participated in an online meeting of the L.A. Police Commission, which was open to the public.
Several L.A. residents called in to voice their criticisms of Moore following his comments in which Moore said the blame for the death of George Floyd is on the rioters “as much as it is on those officers.”
Moore later said he “misspoke” — adding, “but certainly their actions do not serve the enormity of his loss.”
Well, during Tuesday’s Zoom call — local residents unloaded on Moore … including Tony Hawk.
“Chief Moore, I’m gonna level with you. This is bigger than some bad cops or protests. You’ve lost faith in the people of Los Angeles to serve in leadership,” Hawk said.
“You’ve lost control of your police force and your authority is illegitimate.”
Commissioners, if you’re concerned at all about the safety of Los Angeles, if this man does not resign, you must remove him.”
“The situation will continue to get worse until he is gone. History will judge you by the decisions you make today. I yield my time.”
Hawk has been outspoken about the current situation — just a few days ago he posted on social media.
“I’m not a civil rights leader nor would I ever claim to be a student of history, but I’ve seen enough to know that we’re in this together when it feels like solidarity is fleeting.”
“So, let’s hoist that middle finger back up and be careful not to harm ourselves in the process. Black Lives Matter, dignity matters, and our voices can matter.”
