“Not Acceptable”: Sheriff Blasts L.A. County For Defunding the Police

Shortly after the Minneapolis City Council voted to move forward with disbanding the police and New York City officials announced that they could slash the NYPD’s budget to appease the racial justice protesters, Los Angeles County followed right in line with the Great Capitulation. Last week, Los Angeles County CEO Sachi Hamai came forward with a new budget that would strip the L.A. Sheriff’s Department of $145 million in funding and eliminate six units entirely: the gang enforcement squad, the Special Victims Bureau, and the Community Partnership Bureau among them.

This news may have been pleasing to the degenerate Marxists who run Black Lives Matter, but it didn’t sit too well with Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva. He released a statement lashing out at Hamai and accusing her of surrendering to the ignorant mob.

“The budget cuts are targeted specifically to hurt public safety while sparing virtually every other function of county government from any reductions,” Villanueva said. “These cuts come at a time when jails were de-populated of over five thousand inmates in order to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that restrictions are lifting, violent crimes, such as murder, are on the rise across the County. Now is not the time to cut vital law enforcement services, that should be the last thing cut.

“The CEO and the Board have embraced the ‘Defund the Police’ movement and are cynically hiding behind accounting maneuvers, knowing well that loss of revenue in sales tax can be made up by equitably distributing more stable revenue streams like property taxes,” he continued. “This is not acceptable and a willful abandonment of one of the top priorities of all local government, keeping people safe. Curiously, the bloated county bureaucracy remains virtually intact, which should always be the first to suffer reductions. The priorities of the Board of Supervisors are not the priorities of the good people of Los Angeles County.”

We get that most politicians have a hard time seeing things beyond the end of the day, much less any further into the future, but how is anyone so blind as to not realize how badly this is going to backfire? What do people like Hamai think is going to happen when he defund the police and make it more difficult for them to do their jobs? Fewer black people will be killed? Think again. Fewer of them may be killed by the police, but while that makes a huge difference to the grifters in the BLM movement, we’re not so sure it matters to the families of the deceased. Death is death, and removing cops from the streets is going to lead to a lot more of it.

If police reform is needed – and we’re not quite convinced that it is – then we need to be putting even more money into law enforcement, not less. This seems like a fairly basic, fundamental concept. No surprise, then, that Democrats are unable to grasp it.

What do you think?

  1. The police do not reform the people do. you people that want to defund the police need to move your asses to china and see what you can get away with there. you people that want to defund the police are so stupid and ass kissers of pelosi. HOW DOES SHE SMELL YOU SKANK ASSES. yOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO YOUR JOB GET OUT AND LET SOMEONE IN THAT BELIEVES IN AMERICA AND THE POLICE.

    • Donna – people who are pushing to defund the police are not the hooligans. They are the folks who have worked with cities and know that police forces with fewer police and more professional staff that address the 65% of police issues that aren’t crime or violence -these cities have lower murders and violent crime. We will all be better served by police forces that address all types of crime (and this is probably half of what we currently have – and they are very expensive staff).

      Not sure Pelosi is related to this issue.

        • Every state in the country has a major tax short fall. States have to balance their budgets and cuts have to be made or raise taxes. It seams that our has been cursed by god as well as the entire world. The big difference that third world were doing a better job when it came to the virus.

    • This is so awesome. Us bank robbers, rapists, assaulters and pedophiles are going to have a blast in LA County. We’s gonna commit our crimes and not worry about being arrested for them. We will own LA. People will learn to respect our sorry asses or we’ll beat the shit out of them. Woohoo!! This is going to be sooo, sooo very cool. No more fucking cops to worry about. Yay for the liberals defunding the fucking pooolice. You cocksuckers just made our day. Thank you so much!!!

  2. you ABSOLUTELY right Donna!!!!! all these fools need to shipped out to N. Korea!!!! They be begging for Trumps help and the freedom in America!!! We will never be a socialist country!!!

  3. All of the ones who want to defund the police need to be gathered up and shipped to a place that has no law and order, where murder, assault, rape and all other crimes go unchecked. After all, that’s what they want- no law enforcement to interfere with their beloved criminals. Let them see what life is really like without law and order!

  4. Those people that want to defund the police, dont even need to go to far. Just take a tour to Mejico, and the rest of central and south america. Their lives will be run by those in power and no one will care. Why do you think all this illegals want to come here?

  5. Violent crime is less than 2% of police work – maybe another 30% includes property or non-crinminal (white-collar crime, etc.) – makes sense to put funding to the non-criminal services that are done better by people other than the police. Murder rates are steady and decreasing in communities that have moved to a lower police model of service

    We need the police to do their good work and other resource folks to do the majority of what police are sent to do – and what they admit they are not equipped to handle. Other professionals need to work alongside the police to help with the social issues that are a part of our communities.

    So yeah – let’s move half the police budget to staff that can better serve our communities.

    • Trixie – hope you don’t have to call 911 when someone breaks into your home or tries to rape you!!! Same to your idiot CEO Sachi Hamai!!

  6. Where did CEO Sachi Hamai come from? Your sheriff is right, you gave early release to thousands of CRIMINALS both BLACK and WHITE (from the all lives matter group) and now you want to terrorize and abuse every responsible citizen that pay your for your service. Lets stop all of the reaction to the Terrorism just like the white community has bad actors the black community has their problem people too.
    You are over reacting in the wrong way. A. Lets bring more jobs back to America. c. B. Lets train or retrain our work force so that they are prepared to fill the jobs. c. If they belong in jail then lets put them where they belong,
    You will not like calling and having to leave a message so that someone can get back to you.

  7. Minnesota ans Minneapolis will end up with “MARSHAL LAW” … In the END? … There “WILL BE POLICE” The “ONLY” way to endure “PEACE”
