Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday,
carrying signs and chanting in support of a New York City police officer
convicted in a deadly shooting.
The crowd, which was predominantly Chinese American, was one of many that
rallied in cities across the U.S. on Saturday to protest the conviction of
Peter Liang, who is also Chinese American.
Liang was found guilty of manslaughter earlier this month in the 2014
killing of Akai Gurley, an unarmed black man who died from a ricochet bullet
that the rookie cop fired in the stairwell of a Brooklyn housing project.
The deadly encounter was one of many in recent months that drew heightened
scrutiny amid the heated national debate over how police officers use force,
particularly against African American men.

In Los Angeles, demonstrators chanted Liang's name Saturday as they circled
the sidewalks in front of City Hall. Cars drove slowly down the surrounding
streets, horns honking as supporters held signs out of the windows. At one
point, a black-and-white LAPD cruiser whooped its siren in front of the
crowd, drawing cheers.
Supporters held signs plastered with slogans written in English and Chinese:
"Save Peter Liang," "Accident not crime" and "All lives matter."
Fliers handed out by demonstrators expressed "the deepest condolences" for
Gurley's family. But, supporters wrote, they were "equally saddened by the
selective and unjust prosecution of Peter Liang, who is made the scapegoat
of the police brutality that has long troubled our society."

Xiayi Shirley Zhang, a 27-year-old who lives downtown, stood in front of the
LAPD's headquarters, watching the larger group across the street. "
Scapegoat" was written in Chinese on one side of her sign.
Zhang questioned why Liang was convicted when so many other high-profile
police shootings were "far more obviously" questionable. She also wondered
why the NYPD put the inexperienced officer in a high-crime neighborhood.

"It is a tragedy," she said of the fatal shooting. "But to us, with the
criminal conviction, the system let us down, let Peter down."
Zhang said she was glad to see "the Asian community showing our muscle," but
emphasized that their goal was to promote fairness for everyone, regardless
of race.
"It should matter for anyone. It shouldn't just matter for Asians," she said
. "Really, all of us are fighting for a fair and just system."
