'Defund the Police' LA City Council member Demands EXTRA Police patrols around his office

Newly-elected Los Angeles city councillor, Hugo Soto-Martinez, who campaigned to defund the police, has demanded extra protections from the LAPD for his broken-down car.

Soto-Martinez, a member of the Democratic Socialist party, was elected in December.

Soto-Martinez argued the policing system was “completely corrupt, immoral, and needs to be changed drastically.”

However, a member of his team called the LAPD to demand assistance because Soto-Martinez’s white Lexus had broken down.

“Extra patrol throughout the night for parked white Lexus belonging to councilmember,” the LAPD request noted.

“Veh broken down,” the message added.

The irony is Soto-Martinez campaigned on a platform of abolishing the LAPD and to defund the police.

On a candidate questionnaire, he ticked ‘yes’ to defunding the police, defunding the California Highway Patrol, and removing police from schools.

“When I say I consider myself an abolitionist, I want to clarify that I believe in the eventual goal of abolishing the current system of policing and replacing it with something focused on the actual root causes of crime,” he wrote on the questionnaire.

“In short, I believe in caring for our communities, instead of violently oppressing our neighbors.”

He also advocated redistributing existing funds, saying: “There are also opportunities to be had in connecting the redistribution of police money to other public sector unions.”

“Until we have properly funded the things that actually stop crime, instead of spending all our money throwing guys with guns at social problems, there are some steps we can take to remove armed officers from all calls that do not present an immediate threat of gun violence,” he added.

“The current system is completely corrupt, immoral, and needs to be changed drastically.”

“Police officers are trained to be warriors and go into the streets to deal with issues that should be reserved for social workers,” he continued.

When Soto-Martinez was asked about the request, he was furious.

“It’s come to our attention that a deputy staffer had some contact with the LAPD regarding his personal vehicle,” a spokesman told Fox 11.

“We are investigating this matter internally and will be taking appropriate action.”

“Council Member Soto-Martinez is very upset as this does not reflect the values of transparency, responsible governance, and being accountable to the community that elected him.”
