Notice a theme? Left-wing city governments around America are entertaining and enacting cuts to police budgets. Minneapolis City Council is going even further. It is debating “to disband the Minneapolis Police Department and start fresh with a community-oriented, nonviolent public safety and outreach capacity.”
This group of LAPD officers stood up to LA City Councillor Monica Rodriguez to tell her if it wasn’t for them, Los Angeles would be a charred mess.
The police spokesperson responded,
“Now you’re cutting from their families and they put everything on the line? We are going to fight… At the ballot box.”
So the good cops in the LAPD will suffer for the actions of a few.
LA City Mayor Eric Garcetti is the politician who proudly championed that he would have the water and electricity cut off for any businesses that didn’t comply with the stay at home order. He also proudly banned sunbathing on dry sand.
These politicians are insane. If they want to invite the exact destruction to the cities they control under the belief that defunding the police will prevent it, they couldn’t do a better job than they’re doing.
