‘Defund Police’ Lawmaker Ripped Over Overt Hypocrisy After LAPD Was Called To Watch His Lexus
What would you call a politician who ran on and is a vocal proponent of eliminating police departments but asks the police to provide extra patrols around his broken-down Lexus? Yes, of course, a hypocrite.
A Los Angeles city councilman who has expressed support for defunding and ultimately abolishing the police is under fire after his office called the LAPD to patrol his broken-down Lexus.
A staffer for Democrat Los Angeles City Council Member Hugo Soto-Martinez called the LAPD Wednesday evening asking for “extra patrols throughout the night” for his parked white Lexus after the vehicle broke down, according to reports.
Soto-Martinez, who represents L.A.’s District 13, previously identified himself as a police “abolitionist” on a Los Angeles City Council candidate questionnaire.
VP of Los Angeles Police Protective League Sgt. Jerretta Sandoz slammed the “hypocrisy” from the far-left official on “Fox & Friends First” Monday.
“Apparently the councilman and his staff want to abolish the police for everyone by themselves,” Sandoz said. “It is the complete height of hypocrisy.”
“We have a serious crime problem in Los Angeles,” she continued. “We have murder, we have homeless encampments, we have robberies, home invasion robberies. And then you have a councilman calling because his car broke down?”
Sandoz continued, “That’s unbelievable. We’re down 700 police officers in Los Angeles. They’re spread thin. And you have a councilman that’s using his influence to have a police officer come to monitor his vehicle because it’s broken down? How about calling AAA?”
