LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Sheriff Alex Villanueva is challenging Lakers star LeBron James to contribute to efforts to find the gunman who shot two Los Angeles County deputies at point-blank range.
There are two private pledges totaling $75,000, in addition to the $100,000 from the county, but the sheriff is calling on James to kick in $175,000 or even $350,000.
“I want to make a challenge…to LeBron James,” he said. “I want you to match that and double that reward because I know you care about law enforcement.
“You expressed a very interesting statement on race relations and officer-involved shootings and the impact that it has on the African-American community and I appreciate that, but likewise, we need to appreciate that respect for life goes across professions, races, creeds, and I’d like to see LeBron James step up to the plate and double that.”
It’s unclear specifically which statement Villanueva was referring to, but James has publicly condemned the police shootings of George Floyd, Jacob Blake, and others in recent months, saying African Americans are “scared”.
I challenge Sheriff Villanueva to do something about the rampant corruption in his department. Joe Britton? Or how about the gangs within the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department? Compton Executioners? Lynwood Vikings? 3000 Boys? Perhaps they would have more reward money to offer if they weren’t forking up so much money for the lawsuits dealing with police misconduct.
You have two innocent deputy’s fighting for their lives. Ambushed. Put yourself in the place of a cop. You most likely could not handle the job.

If it’s wrong for a cop to play judge, jury, and executioner when his life isn’t in peril, no citizen should play judge, jury, and executioner when his life isn’t in peril. These don’t strike me as complicated issues.
If the Sheriff wants LeBron to pay money, what’s he gonna offer in return? How about get rid of the cop union. That should be work a lot of money to the Black community.
