Hypocrite! Dem Official Gets Private Police Protection While Demanding to Defund the Police

I have no idea why I continue to be appalled at the hypocritical nature of some in the Democratic Party. Time after time, they have proved they are willing to do and say whatever necessary to push their agenda while at the same time going behind the scenes to ensure they are treated like royalty.

A prime example of this comes to us from Los Angeles, California, where civil unrest after the wrongful death of Minneapolis, Minnesota resident George Floyd, while in police custody has sparked a serious discussion to disband and defund the local police force.

The push for such a dismantling seems to be strongest at the moment in Floyd’s hometown of Minneapolis. Here, nine members of the city council have publicly come forward in approval for such a move. And as it turns out, nine votes is all they need…

In Los Angeles, things aren’t all that different. However, the focus seems to be more on “defunding” than completely doing away with the police department, at least for now.

One of the leaders of this movement is City Council President Nury Martinez, who has filed a motion to cut about $150 million from the current police budget. As you can imagine, this would force the department to reconfigure itself entirely, possibly even rendering them useless.

So you can bet I found it interesting when it was discovered that Martinez has had her home, family, and person privately guarded by an LAPD security team since April.

Yep, that’s right. While Martinez sits in her office demanding that police funding gets cut drastically, her home has two armed police officers standing watch.

The report came in on Monday from Spectrum News 1, where reporter Natalie Brunell aired the story.

Brunell wrote on her Twitter account, “#LATEST LA Council Pres. Nury Martinez, who introduced a motion to cut #LAPD’s budget by $150 million, had a private LAPD protection detail camped at her home from April to June.”

Naturally, since news of this has come out, Martinez has canceled the detail, obviously hoping to avoid the scandal it will cause. As Brunell reported, “It was called off the night we called to ask her team about it.”

For LAPD Detective and director of the LA Police Protective league Jamie McBride, he says Martinez’s actions are “disgusting” and downright hypocritical. He told Brunell, “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.”

Apparently, what’s good for the goose, isn’t for the gander.

Martinez believes she is entitled to special treatment and security of the highest order. Meanwhile, she has decided that the residents and citizens of her city don’t deserve the same. As riots and protests began in late May, her home stood guarded and secure. Meanwhile, businesses, homes, and vehicles around the city were left to defend themselves, being burned, looted, and utterly destroyed.

And now she blames the police, calling for their abolishment.

How hypocritical, indeed.

Additionally, McBride noted that the security detail that Martinez ordered wasn’t paid for by her own pockets. Nope, that money was taken hard-earned taxpayer dollars meant to help the city. And according to McBride, it probably cost the residents of LA about $100,000.

McBride told Burnell, “It’s disgusting. For two officers in front of a residence since April, you’re probably over $100,000 of the people’s money.”

A spokesman from Martinez’s office told Spectrum on Monday that the security detail was initially put in place because Martinez had received threats to her home and family. Therefore, the police department that she is now so against recommended it.

“Multiple LAPD sources confirmed the units were directed to provide 24/7 security beginning April 4 at Martinez’s home, almost always staffed by two officers,” according to Spectrum’s report. On May 6, that detail was changed to cover only 7 am to 9 pm, with patrol checks happening overnight.

So, according to her liberal mindset, threats against her and her family deserve immediate action and protection. But anyone else and the city at large is on their own.

The spokesman has since said that the councilwoman canceled the detail “because she felt the security it was supposed to provide was now compromised.”

Really, you don’t say? I don’t know that I’d be eager to provide security and protection to a woman who was calling for my job either.

  1. This is a very good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere. Short but very accurate info… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read post!|

  2. SO, they want to cut funding. Where are you going to find a replacement group for those who will leave?
    Most police officers get little more than the $15 per hour a growing number of Burger King workers get:
    • Salary.com…$53,000-71,000 per year
    • Glassdoor.com…$47,000-95,000 per year
    • Payscale.com…$35,000-90,000 per year (Median $52,000)
    • Indeed.com…Entry-level…$31,965 per year
    • $15/hr full time…$$31,200
    Because of the pay finding good police officers is hard.

  3. That’s right .its time for the corupt dems give up their police protection.tax payers dont need to keep paying for their protection from their peaceful BLM protesters.

  4. Kinda like Elizabeth Warren now demanding action but not even knowing Cherokee Indians she falsely claimed to be were black slave owners.
    Whatever the mob wants they are for it except law and order.

  5. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

  19. No, no, no way, if taxpaying citizens have NO POLICE then NO GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL GETS THAT RIGHT!!! We pay their corrupt asses to work for us, if we aren’t protected THEN NEITHER ARE THEY!!

  20. I used to be a democrat, until Truman fired General MacAuther in Korea. He recognized China as a future world problem, when they sent around 200,000 troupes to save North Korea, I know cause I was there. Look what we have now in North Korea. I now see the Democratic Party as a socialist (communist) bunch of idiots that can’t think for themselves. If they get a dictator in Washington, guess who would be the first to be put in front of a firing squad, the educated elite.
    I have never voted for a democrat since.

    1. Dear Raymond,
      thank you for your service. My father in law worked a MASH” unit for several years in Korea.

      It would be hard to guess whether that was a good or bad move on Truman’s part, because he withdrew from aggressive action fearing it would bring the Soviet Union into the fray. Something to be considered. And it is NOT a safe bet that any armed conflict in the area would save N. Korea…. Look at the Viet Nam war.
      Any way, thank you again for your service.

    2. You are one condescending puke. Give actual links to the LAPD budget, so we can see who is actually getting bonuses raise. Most of the time the mo eye starts at the top.
      And you keep chiming in like you are so much smarter than everyone else. You really just sind like an ass####e.

  21. I really believe police force should be granted greater funds, so they can train, get better more appropriate equipment, like bodycams on everyone, etc, and offer better pay to our brave (most) men and women.

    1. Actually Maresa, I agree, and so do the democrats. The removal of $1.5 million in funding was from a 2021 RAISE for bonuses… total raise is 1.5 million from 600 million, or roughly $598.5 million of the raises , added to a completely preserved basic budget, is still going through.

  22. Vote republican. Have all so called politicians except president and Vice President pay for own security. They don,t trust our police so why have them as guards.


  24. Yes I’ve been saying this all along write your congressman demand the defunding of there private body guards and tax paid police protection for these commie scumbags , they, must lead by example
    If the citizens dont get protection neither should they these arrogant pricks feel there lives are more important than ours bullshit ! all lives matter

    1. Why hasn’t the Trump campaign paid all its police security bills? 2019/06/13 › why-hasnt-the-trump-campaign paid its security bills?

    2. Yes Ken Stone,
      and let’s start with Trump who has not paid for security at his campaign rallies.

  25. The Dems are all hypocrites and have been for many many years. They just were able to hide it in the past really good. Since President Trump was elected he as revealed their true identity and motives. The Democrats care about one thing and one thing only “Power” , they do not care about us the people at all. They want complete control and to get that control they need us to be completely dependent on them for everything so we can kiss freedom and liberty goodbye if they ever manage to get that control. They jump on board to anything and everything of the day, first it was covid 19 and lock down everything claiming we must stay indoors and go nowhere and do not open for business, then comes George Floyd shooting and the protest of thousands of people close together on the streets so they jump on board and support that, abandoning their claim just the day before concerning covid, this no longer matters. Anything to get a vote they will support. The truth is they stand for power and control only. We the people are either ignorant, uneducated, or uninformed about the truth to keep electing these people to only take our freedoms away. We must stand strong and boot all of them out and vote the Republicans in to take the house, senate, and the Whitehouse this November. If we don’t we will lose our freedoms and liberty, this election is that important.

  26. I think it would be fair to take away the right, to the authorities of all blue states on their own protection during the riots organized by themselves or with their support. These authorities must be just as helpless before the bandits as their constituents.

    1. lyudmilla Loeva
      Hard to understand what you mean “take away the right”… to authorities??? For their protection?
      Also , riots are not the same as peaceful demonstrations for your first ammendment right to petition the government. You do understand there is a difference, right?

  27. GET RID of the private police & body guards you SCUMBAG DEMONCRAPS have that we pay for. Ya’ll are friends with the rioters & terrorist. See how you feel walking around WITHOUT PROTECTION 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂.

  28. Take away every democrats security then let them pay for their own private security lets see how long it takes for them to fall on their faces. And maybe they should be careful when they pick their private security one never knows what could happen

  29. Hello Dear!
    From one side mr. Floyd had none positive characteristic and must to set in the jail,but
    Mr. Own God decide to take him and put them in the his workhouse.
    SeniorItis is not guilty – IIK

  30. Just like all of the celebrities and politicians who call for gun control all have armed body guards!!!!!!!

  31. These reps are totally out of touch with their constituency. Many neighborhoods are clamoring for more LE presence, not less or none. Want to make a real impact? Defund do nothing reps both local & fed.
    House of Reps just gave themselves a completely undeserved $25 million raise. Explain how they deserve that raise when they are actually working wat less than half the year. Add to that their expense accounts and transportation perks along with so called international fact finding junkets and its obscene. Term limits and the end to life long pension for holding office one term. Put them on the Medical Coverage ordinary citizens have.
    Understand that I am not just talking about Dems since GOP reps enjoy the same pay, benefits & perks & are just as hypocritical for failing to speak out about Dems abuses.

    1. Dear Winston, defund does not mean dispersal of police, but creating some splits in funding to incorporate other solutions for police, whose time might be up to 90% spent on social services. There is also a move to make police more accountable when they shoot and kill someone for no crime, or nonviolent crime. Sounds like a win, right?
      As for the person who did not like drugs being made less of a police response…. did you readup on the American Prohibition? There is a long history of finding that criminalizing certain types of drugs simply compromises your police force with activities that are best suited to public discourse. I bet a lot of people here will pick up a beer or drink of wine? I bet many will pick up marijuana. Not my cup of tea either, but I don’t have to use it, and I teach my relatives better. However, some of you will be using meth, cocaine, smoking epsom salts, or misusing your opioid perscription… and folks, you do not have the republican funded health insurance to do this. In fact, if you are relaying on Republicans, they are about to ruin the pre=existent conditions formula which keeps your current health care, if you have it, fair and equitable, and without a life time tiny cap.
      In other words, be as distracted by this as you wanna be, but realize you are being distracted away from lack of plans, and encouragement to expose yourselves, to the worst pandemic of recent memory. Do you wear a mask or practice social distancing? You might start. We are having resurgences.

  32. Have the people in California so brain dead they keep electing these people? I guess this is why all politicians are voting in legal drugs to get elected and keep people stupid.
    Working well. Pelosi just keeps drinking away and going to Betty Ford I’m sure on taxpayer dime.

  33. Why don’t these democrats move to a cominust country that’s where they belong not here in am9 and take their rioters with them!####

    1. Dear RAndy, Gary, Cactus, Michael et al
      Information is skewed and incorrect. The call for a reduction of $1.5 million is made by Garcetti, and is to come from the approx. $ .6 billion INCREASE in funding for police, and would include bonuses. Let’s see…. $ .6 billion minus 1.5 million withdrawn from the raise, leaves the funding completely intact, but the bonuses have been cut by 0.3%.
      Since you are also easily distractible, how is your health insurance doing? Any of you prepared for the resurgence of the coronavirus, since Trump and Republicans do not have a plan for taking care of the national response to this pandemic.
      see below, for information on LA police funding:
      Image result for funding for la police dept
      Some politicians are listening: the Los Angeles Police Department was set to receive a large increase in its annual budget from $1.189 billion last year to $1.86 billion (most of the budget increases were for new police bonuses) for 2020-2021 before Garcetti axed that move Wednesday, cutting $100-$150 million — only …Jun 4, 2020

    2. Kellie
      While it is true about the California budget for the LA police department, it is also true, that the state and the cities are looking at around 20 billion in deficit for this fiscal all year 2021, it seems to me many departments in the state will not be funded as they either like or need, you decide. As the mayor of LA stated, they are relying on the Fed to fund some 20 billion in the new stimulants package that aunt Nancy is going to try and push through. Now she will get it through the house by the severe twist of arms, but other house democrats will pay for it with their seats. Secondarily the Senate will chop it to pieces and sanctuary cities like LA And San Fran will have whatever monies coming to them severely chopped. So it means that you and California, Washington, Oregon are expecting President Trump to sign this bill into law. I hate to bust your little bubble but that ain’t happening. It will also have negative effects on so many other out of control spending states.
      But the point to be taken from the article, a city counsel person is ok for other citizens to lose their businesses, and family members, or have one of them raped, beaten and robbed, so she can live in her multimillion estate and have no worries. You are so eat up with your liberal thinking it is not hard to see how you miss the point. I do feel for ya babe

  34. I love looking through a post that can make people think. Also, many thanks for permitting me to comment!

    1. Simple answer. The police stop protecting the city councils members first. As it stop today and publish the addresses of the places the police will stop protecting.

      That will change the city councils song right away. Just about the time they are robbed and raped.

    2. Hey, they can now publish the addresses of police officers so why not politicians, especially those that come up with hair brained ideas!

    3. Actually, this incident needs to be investigated to see if the expenditure can’t be recovered from her $PAYROLL CHECKS. This is not only a slap in the face of RIGHT VS WRONG, but the THEFT OF FUNDS!!!
      I would certainly appreciate being kept abreast of the outcome! The DUMBOCRAPS don’t think they can do any wrong, as has been displayed for so long, and I am SICK of their CROOKED CRAP!
