LA City Council President Nury Martinez calls for defunding the police while having her own police protection detail at taxpayers expense – they are laughing at you

A Los Angeles city official has come under fire for using the LAPD as her ‘personal security’ for the last two months at a cost of $100,000 to the city, while she has filed a motion to cut the police department’s budget by $150 million.
