LA County To Put Defunding Sheriff’s Office On November Ballot

It’ll be very interesting to see how the people of LA County vote. Remember, what people think of as Los Angeles is actually a huge county, going from Long Beach in the south to way, way north, up into the mountains and forests. You have Pomona, Inglewood, Santa Monica, Malibu, Beverly Hills, Palmdale, Santa Clarita, and so many more municipalities, with the city of LA proper right in the middle. Take a look at a map on this. You have everything from extremely rich to extremely poor encompassed

L.A. County Supervisors Vote to Put Defunding Police on November Ballot

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a proposal on Tuesday to amend the city’s charter — which will be presented to voters on November 3 via ballot — to remove $880 million from law enforcement and “reinvest” the money in “direct community investment” and “alternatives to incarceration.”

Titled, “Reimagining L.A. County: Shifting Budget Priorities to Revitalize Under-resourced and Low-income Communities,” the proposal includes language frequently used by Democrat politicians and the broader left. It alleges the existence of “systemic discrimination, exclusion, and inequity” targeting blacks and yielding “racial injustice” and “racial inequity.”

Bill Melugin, an L.A.-based reporter, reported on some of the details via Twitter:

How will the vote go? You know those who are served by the Sheriff’s office will vote against the measure. Those who want that money for themselves will vote for the measure. How involved is the Sheriff’s office with LA County? Not sure about there, but the Sheriff’s office tends to be all around here in NC, even in the bigger cities like Raleigh. Where I grew up in NJ, I didn’t even realize we had sheriff’s. Never saw them. They are there, though.

But, you can bet most people won’t see their own money if it passes. It’ll be used to patronize low income voters to bribe them to vote Democrat. And crime will spike, especially in those low income areas. What’s left of the Sheriff’s department will serve only those areas that are moneyed and/or voted against the measure.

    You see? It was never about the police. It’s about the money. It’s always about the money for leftists. Looting and theft is how socialism works.
