Kevin Wharton Price, one of the Black Lives Matter supporters who protested at the entrance to the hospital where two L.A. County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) deputies were rushed Saturday, said he has no regrets.
On Saturday evening, Price was seen outside the local hospital where the two LASD deputies had been rushed after being shot in the face and head, respectively, when they were ambushed by a man who shot them as they sat in their patrol car.
He shouted: “I hope they f***ing die!”
In a Facebook video posted Monday, Price defended his actions, noting that his group was “associated” with Black Lives Matter but was separate from it. “our own political agenda.”
He mocked the idea of being upset that “two slave-catchers from Compton got popped.”
He disputed reports that Black Lives Matter protesters were trying to block the entrance to the hospital, or to force their way
