Eric Garcetti: Money Taken From Police Must Go to Moonbattery

When urban progressives defund the police despite soaring crime rates, at least taxpayers get some of their money back, right? Just kidding of course. Not only do characters like Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti keep the money, they insist that it be put toward a destructive purpose:

Garcetti vetoed a plan backed by black and Latino members of the City Council to redistribute money cut from the police Tuesday because he said it was too focused on everyday needs and not on the “call of history.”

The “call of history” means pernicious moonbattery.

The plan, which was originally passed 13-2, included funding to trim trees, improve parks, and repair sidewalks in poor neighborhoods.

No dice; too constructive. If Garcetti wanted to help minority neighborhoods, he would see to it that they are policed sufficiently.

A little background:

In June, as the city was under curfew and the National Guard was on the streets, Garcetti acceded to a demand by Black Lives Matter activists to defund the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) by $150 million, more than 10% of the budget.

The terrorists did not have to twist his arm very hard.

The funding was to be redistributed to “communities of color.”

This is known as “racial justice” or more accurately as “racial spoils.”

The move led to a collapse in morale within the police department, and coincided with a surge in homicides in Los Angeles.

You can’t make a leftist omelet without breaking eggs. If you want a pretext for a gun grab, breaking eggs may be the objective.

How to waste the money in a way that would suit Garcetti? A giant golden statue of fentanyl casualty George Floyd? No good; not local enough. Better to make it a statue of Floyd’s fellow career criminal Deonte Murray, who was arrested for seriously wounding two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies in an attempted assassination on September 12, presumably as part of the mostly peaceful protesting that had led to the police being defunded.
