Los Angeles Against the Police

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti who called Police Officers “KILLERS” and City Councilmembers responded to the demands of protestors and rioters and slashed $150 Million Dollars from the 2020-2021 LAPD budget.  L.A. Taxpaying residents and business owners were ignored by city officials who continue to permit the city to turn more neighborhoods into homeless camps with expanding decay and rising violent crime trends.        

All but two voting council members approved Mayor Garcetti’s 2020-2021 city budget after slashing  $150 MILLION DOLLARS from the LAPD to pass the funds to various organizations serving minority communities in L. A.  Following the hatched job on the LAPD budget, the council adjourned future July meetings in order to go on a near month long Summer Recess while the City is in a semi-locked down due to the Coronavirus that is spreading and infecting more people in the region and other American cities. 

While the FBI continues to investigate elected and appointed officials at City Hall, two elected councilmembers have already been arrested and one has agreed to go to prison without a trial, the cloud of suspicion remains high as to when the next arrest or arrests will occur as the investigation of illegal activity of bribes and corruption is conducted by FBI agents.  

While members of the council enjoy their extended summer vacation and annual salary of over $207,000, the taxpayers of L.A. continue to struggle to find a job, pay their bills and find funds to repair the damage caused by the riots that recently took place in large sections of the city.  The lack of leadership and support displayed by the Mayor and Councilmembers for the LAPD and people of L.A. is truly a sad situation for Angelinos.    

While the majority of the council voted to slash the $150 million in public safety funds from the police budget, only two councilmembers had the courage to stand up to the anti-police groups calling for the financial reduction and redistribution to other causes.  Councilmembers John Lee from the 12th District in the San Fernando Valley and Joe Buscaino from the 15th District in South Los Angeles and San Pedro.  The rest of the council followed the lead of the Spineless Mayor and those pushing for the reduction in police funding.  Keep this in mind when you call 911 and there is a delay in the response time of officers.   

Remember the names of the councilmembers that have turned their backs on public safety for all the people in Los Angeles.  Remember them when they ask you to vote for new tax increases that will appear on a future ballots and ask for your vote.  Since they have turned their backs on public safety for you and your family, they might be better suited to find a job in the private sector.  I will remind you of those that don’t deserve your support and vote at election time this November and in future years.

  1. If they are going to cut the police budget the first place that should lose money is for security for elected officials. The police’s job is to protect and serve the people of the city not the city officials. So if the budget for the security of officials is one million per year Then they should not have any security security.

    • I like this idea, how about they lead by example and totally give up their security and their guns. I have a feeling that it would not be long before the problem solved itself if people could readily get to them.

  2. You know, these pieces seem to have more and more subtle indoctrination withing them all the time now. Looks like someone notice that the truth of this FRAUDULENT PANDEMIC was starting to open the eyes of the populous , can’t be having that now , can we. De-funding Police, allowing murder and property crimes to go unpunished , releasing violent offenders from prison and yet I still hear people say that the government is the one telling us the truth . WTF is wrong with America, you would think that even the most brainwashed fools would see what is happening.

    DEFUND THE USELESS COUNCIL, THEY ARE THE ANTIFA OF LOS ANGELES. THEY ARE THE IDIOTS WHO ALLOWED HOMELESS TO TAKE UP AND OCCUPY CITY PROPERTY CAUSING BLIGHT FOR THOSE HARDWORKING BUSINESSES WHO TRY TO DEAL WITH THEM ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS. I AM DISGUSTED TO LEARN HOW MUCH THEY MAKE AND ALL THEY DO IS PONTIFICATE 3 DAYS A WEEK. I ONLY HOPE THAT THE POLICE WILL NOT HELP THEM IN ANY DETAIL OR RESPOND TO THEIR NEEDS. IN FACT, IT WOULD BE A RELIEF IF THE POLICE WENT ON A SUMMER VACATION ALL TOGETHER AND LET THIS BLOODY, DEMOCRATIC ONE STATE PARTY RUN STATE DETERIORATE/BURN TO THE GROUND. THEY ARE THE 1% THEY COMPLAIN OF, THE ELITIST, CORRUPT, SWAMP DWELLING PROGRESSIVE LOSERS. DO THEY EVER WONDER WHY WE HAVE THE WORST EDUCATION, POROUS OPEN BORDERS, CRIME, HOMELESSNESS, IT STARTS AND ENDS WITH THEM BECAUSE THE REPUBLICANS HAVE NO VOICE. RUIN IS ALL THEY ARE GOOD FOR AND THIS STATE DESERVES EVERYTHING THEY VOTE FOR AND THEN SOME. ENJOY YOUR GAS TAX YOU VOTED FOR YOU IDIOTS.

      Ditto for the All-Leftist L.A. County Board of Supervisors. Huge budget, very destructive agenda, and they are hardly ever acknowledged; they manage to successfully fly under the radar most of the time.

    Democrats are subhuman scum.
    Treat them accordingly.

    Let’s face it. Defund the police just gives cities cover for what they would have to do anyway. Cities like Los Angeles and Oakland and Fresno and San Diego etc. etc. etc will all be cutting funds from the police and the fire department and the park and rec and everything because of huge shortfall in revenues. About the only thing they can’t cut will be debt payments and pensions and the only way to reduce those will be through bankruptcy. I expect there will be 150 municipalities within California that will declare bankruptcy within the next three years.
