Default Some in LAPD Slam City Council Over Private Security Details Amid Budget Cut

Protection for me, but not for thee!...

Some in LAPD Slam City Council Over Private Security Details Amid Budget Cut

Quote:
While LA City Council President Nury Martinez was filing a motion last week seeking to cut $150 million from the LAPD budget, she had an LAPD unit standing watch outside her home providing her family with a private security detail since April.

The round-the-clock protection unit, often staffed by two officers, infuriated some members of the police force when Martinez introduced the motion...

...“It’s kind of ironic. Here she is demanding $150 million be reallocated from the police budget, but yet she has security at her house by the Los Angeles Police Department,” said Det. Jamie McBride, who serves as director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the LAPD’s union...

...“It’s a very, very large division,” McBride said. “Now we’re taking one unit away from the equation. If a citizen calls 911 there’s less units on the streets to respond to that 911 call.

Spectrum News 1 shot exclusive video of the units standing watch at Martinez’s home last week after receiving a tip about the private security detail.

Neighbors confirmed the units had been there for two months, but didn’t want to speak on camera, only saying they were pleased with having private security provided by the LAPD in their neighborhood.

“It’s disgusting,” McBride said. “For two officers in front of a residence since April, you’re probably over $100,000 of the people’s money.”
And guess what happened when the hypocrite was found out?...

The protection detail was canceled Thursday night when we first contacted Martinez’s office for comment.

They already have internal standards and practices as well as review boards and prosecutors. Radical Leftists demand the police be defunded all together so their violent mobs can dispense "justice" to their liking. As we have seen with the new Confederacy in downtown Seattle, complete with racial exclusion zones, the vision for the future is mob rule. Merchants and residents in the area have banned together to hire private security since the mayor has abdicated responsibility for law enforcement. Of course in poor neighborhoods most in need of public safety, this is not an option.
