Actress-turned-radical liberal activist Alyssa Milano just teamed up with Black Lives Matter to call for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) to be defunded by 90 percent. She also went after the union that represents the rank-and-file members of the LAPD.

Milano was a busy bee on Twitter on Monday, tweeting an attack at the L.A. Police Protective League (LAPPL), which she blasted as a “narrow special interest group” that she claims aims to protect the LAPD’s budget and pensions. She added the hashtag “#ProtectPeopleNotPolice.” at the end of her tweet.

The LAPPL has spent the last few weeks fighting with Mayor Eric Garcetti over his anti-police statements as anti-cop vitriol continues to spread throughout the country in the wake of the death of George Floyd. In a recent meeting with black leaders, Garcetti went so far as to call LAPD officers “killers,” according to Breitbart News.

Last week, Garcetti helped the Los Angeles city council vote to defund the LAPD’s budget by $150 million, but this was not enough for Milano and her fellow Black Lives Matter activists. They’re continuing to push the People’s Budget L.A., which would redirect 90 percent of the LAPD’s funding to community safety efforts as well as to other initiatives.

The People’s Budget L.A. argues that the LAPD’s funding should be reduced to just 1.64 percent of the city’s general spending, a decrease from 16.2 percent during the 2019-20 fiscal year.

On Monday, Milano called on her 3.7 million Twitter followers to sign a petition in support of the People’s Budget L.A. Not stopping there, she also asked them to help her in essentially bullying the L.A. Police Protective League on social media.

“The LAPPL is a major obstacle to defunding the police and reimagining public safety  — our goal is to highlight this,” leaders of Black Live Matter L.A. said on the official website for People’s Budget L.A.

This comes after we reported that shootings in New York City skyrocketed by 205% after Mayor Bill de Blasio made efforts to defund the police department. The residents of Los Angeles should expect the same thing to happen in their city, should Milano and her fellow radical leftists get their way.
