On Nov. 10, 2013, 39-year-old Donte Jordan was shot in the back by police officers as he walked away from them. Although the District Attorney's office concluded the officers “acted lawfully in self-defense and the defense of others,”  Jordan’s mother Pamela Fields does not agree with the actions taken by police or the findings of the DA.


While she cannot bring her son back, she says enjoying his memorial bench in Seaside Park every Sunday brings her some comfort. But, she says she's been hurt by a recent memo from Long Beach City Manager Tom Modica and Chief Police Wally Hebeish saying the bench is inappropriate and never should have been allowed.
