Los Angeles to Pay $975,000 to Estate of Homeless Woman Killed By Police
Saturday, December 16, 2000
LOS ANGELES ‹ The city has agreed to pay $975,000 to the estate of a
homeless woman who was killed by a police officer when she allegedly lunged
at him with a screwdriver.


AP/Wide World
May 19: Justiceville homeless activists lead a shopping cart brigade in
memory of Margaret Mitchell.

The City Council on Friday voted 12-0 to settle a federal civil rights
lawsuit filed on behalf of Margaret Mitchell.

"It is a tragedy," Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas said. He also criticized
the Police Department for a series of high-profile shooting deaths this

Mitchell was shot to death May 21, 1999, after two officers stopped her to
determine whether a shopping cart she was pushing was stolen.

Police said one officer shot the mentally ill woman when she lunged at him
with a 12-inch screwdriver, but five witnesses who were deposed for the
lawsuit said they did not see woman lunge.

Police Chief Bernard Parks ruled the shooting was within department policy
but that the officer employed faulty tactics. The civilian Los Angeles
Police Commission said in a report in February that the shooting violated
department policy.
