1 – Home to the rich and famous votes to defund sheriff’s office — even as crime skyrockets 137%
Fox News reports: A trendy Los Angeles County community has voted to reduce law enforcement funding despite escalating crime and public backlash.
The budget for the next two fiscal years will leave West Hollywood with up to five fewer Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies on patrol, WeHoville reported.
The budget was approved by a narrow 3-2 vote with Mayor Lauren Meister dissenting as well as Councilman John Erickson.
“I’m not going to vote for the budget if we cut the sheriff’s (funds),” Meister said, according to the news outlet. “First of all, nobody has the gun problem that we have in this country. You can’t expect us to have a public safety team where most of the people aren’t armed in order to defend our citizens.”
Mayor Pro Tem Sepi Shyne amended the budgets to re-allocate funds for sheriff’s deputies to the Block by Block program, which staffs unarmed security ambassadors who provide the city with supplemental law enforcement services.
Going against wishes of many #WeHo residents, council voted 3-2 to reject the city’s proposal to keep the Sheriffs staffed at current levels. Mayor @meister4weho & @JohnEricksonWH voted NO to cutting deputies. @LindseyPHorvath, @SepiShyne & @ourWEHO voted to CUT our deputies.

MY TAKE: What an IDIOT move! And now… below is the result of the soft-on-crime policies on the other side of the country:
2 – Frustrated detectives leaving ‘insane’ NYPD en masse, have ‘had enough’
The New York Post reports: More than 100 NYPD detectives have retired in June — and another 75 plan to put their papers in next month — as many become frustrated by revolving door justice and rules that hamstring them in the Big Apple, officials and detectives told The Post.
“That’s going to have a major impact on investigating crimes,” Detectives Endowment Association President Paul DiGiacomo said. “The detective squads are down now as we speak and are investigating more cases. It’s going to have an impact on public safety.”
So far this year 250 detectives have retired, leaving the total number at about 5,600, which is nearly 2000 less than two decades ago.
At his NYPD walkout ceremony at the 105 Precinct station house Tuesday, Queens Detective Jason Caputo, 51, said he “had enough.”
“To know me is to know I love the job in and out but it’s not the same job I joined,” said Caputo, who is leaving after 18 years in the NYPD, and thus not getting his maximum pension, which kicks in after 20.
“The no bail law was a big thing with me,” he said. “It’s not even really crimefighting anymore. You arrest somebody for assault 2 with a weapon and then the person is back at the precinct getting his property the next day. They’re not locking anyone up, even those with records. Pay your debt to society. You broke the law.”
I’m proud to stand with great law enforcement officers, who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe.
They deserve our respect. https://t.co/4UAVGH4cJa

MY TAKE: The radicals are finding all kinds of ways to defund the police, and all it’s doing is turning America into a lawless country I don’t even recognize anymore.
3 – Left Pushes Vaccines on Children: ‘Elmo Got the COVID Vaccine Today’
Breitbart reports: The famed Sesame Street character Elmo on Tuesday announced on social media that he, too, got vaccinated for the Chinese coronavirus, telling children “Elmo’s doctor said the vaccine would help keep Elmo healthy.”
“Elmo got the COVID vaccine today, just like Elmo’s mommy and daddy!” a social media update from Elmo’s official Twitter account read. “Elmo’s daddy had a lot of questions, but Elmo’s doctor said the vaccine would help keep Elmo healthy, and all of Elmo’s friends and family too!” it added, using the hashtag, #CaringForEachOther.
“You were super duper today, getting your COVID vaccine Elmo,” Elmo’s father said in Sesame Street clip posted to social media before seemingly talking to parents.
“I had a lot of questions about Elmo getting the COVID vaccine. Was it safe? Was it the right decision? I talked to our pediatrician so I could make the right choice,” Elmo’s father said. “I learned that Elmo getting vaccinated is the best way to keep himself our friends, neighbors and everyone else healthy and enjoying the things they love.”
It’s okay to have questions about COVID-19 vaccines for children! Elmo’s dad Louie talked to their pediatrician, and learned that Elmo getting vaccinated is the best way to keep him and his whole neighborhood safe and healthy! #CaringForEachOther pic.twitter.com/aWkCfysJPE

MY TAKE: Remember the days when Sesame Street used to be something magical and pure? Welp, those days are gone. Now it’s part of the Democrats’ indoctrination scheme.
