LAT: As peaceful protests continue, LAPD budget could be cut by up to $150 million to reinvest in communities of color

LA mayor Eric Garcetti’s father Gil Garcetti let OJ Simpson get away with murder by moving the case to downtown Los Angeles. His son Eric takes a knee before the people looting the city. Now he wants to take away $150 million from law enforcement and give it to groups who fuel rioting.

Eric Garcetti threatened jail for people who dared to walk on the beach during the lockdown but he encourages these mass protests. Maybe Dennis Prager is right that the LA mayor and California governor are power mad and unhinged.

I like many things about our mayor. I like his calm demeanor, his understated sense of humor, and his grace. Lacking sufficient knowledge, I did not oppose or support the Covid-19 lockdown. I was willing to give the mayor and governor the benefit of the doubt on their Covid-19 response. Now I don’t know any positive way of looking at their Covid-19 choices given that they threw away everything they previously stood for when BLM (Black Lives Matter) came calling.

As for this media fetishization with “peaceful protests”, the riots and looting could not occur as extensively without the cover of these “peaceful protests.” The “peaceful protests” enable the looting and violence. They are a necessary pre-condition for the violence. And yet hundreds of corporations and Democratic politicians support BLM, which is a domestic terrorist group.

The Los Angeles Times described the protests yesterday as “peaceful.” Here’s an example of this “peaceful protest” from the afternoon of June 3:

From the Los Angeles Times:

As protests over police brutality and the death of George Floyd stretched into a sixth day, Los Angeles officials said Wednesday that they will look to cut $100 million to $150 million from the city’s police budget as part of a broader effort to reinvest more dollars into the black community.

In all, Mayor Eric Garcetti pledged that the city would “identify $250 million in cuts so we can invest in jobs, in health, in education and in healing,” especially in the city’s black community “as well as communities of color and women and people who have been left behind.”

Stand your ground doesn’t just apply to the use of guns. It’s a good philosophy for life when you consistently do the right thing.
