The following article, ICYMI: Dem Lawmaker Who Voted to Defund Police Called Cops to His Home 8 Times Since April, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Democrats would love a smaller police force, until it comes time that they need hep from…the police force. Funny how that works, isn’t it? It’s almost as if the left has no clue what it’s doing.
Check out this Democrat lawmaker from Los Angeles, for example. His name is Mike Bonin, city councilman.
Bonin voted to defund the LAPD by $150 million. Great guy, huh? And yet, since the month of April, Bonin has made numerous phone calls for cops to come to his home.
A public records request reveals that LA city councilman Mike Bonin, who voted to defund LAPD by $150 million, has called LAPD to his home 8 times since 4/4/20, including to provide extra patrols and protection from peaceful protesters at his house. https://t.co/Z6yhJ8XKM4

Rep. Alexandria Ocommie-Cortez (D-NY) pretty much wants to see law enforcement disappear. She’s on the side of radical liberal protesters, who feel that defunding the police is a good idea.
From New York Post:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday the proposed $1.5 billion NYPD budget slash didn’t go far enough.
She said, “Defunding police means defunding police. It does not mean budget tricks or funny math. It does not mean moving school police officers from the NYPD budget to the Department of Education’s budget so the exact same police remain in schools.”
She added, “It does not mean counting cuts in overtime as cuts, even as NYPD ignores every attempt by City Council to curb overtime spending and overspends on overtime anyways. The fight to defund policing continues.”
