A top Los Angeles Democrat official, who is pushing for the city's police department to be defunded, has her own private LAPD detail guarding her home, it has been revealed.

City Council President Nury Martinez has tried to make substantial cuts to the Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) funding.

However, a special LAPD unit, usually made up of 2 officers, has been guarding Martinez's home for the last two months, as reported by Spectrum 1 News journalist Natalie Brunell.

"The private security detail infuriated some members of the force when Martinez became one of the council members to spearhead a motion to cut $150 million in funding to the LAPD’s budget," Brunell reported.

"Multiple LAPD sources confirmed the units were directed to provide 24/7 security beginning April 4 at Martinez’s home, almost always staffed by two officers.

"As of May 6, we’re told the detail decreased to 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. with roving patrol checks overnight."

Director of the Los Angeles Police Protective League Detective Jamie McBride told Brunell: "It’s kind of ironic.

"Here she is demanding $150 million be reallocated from the police budget, but yet she has security at her house by the Los Angeles Police Department."

McBridge points out that there is one less unit on the streets able to respond to emergency calls due to Martinez having her own special detail.

"It’s disgusting," McBride said, according to the Daily Wire.

"For two officers in front of a residence since April, you’re probably over $100,000 of the people’s money."

What's more, Martinez's special unit was reportedly canceled shortly after Brunell attempted to reach out to her for comment.

A spokesperson for Martinez insisted that the reason the unit was stationed at Martinez's house is that she had received threats, though McBride fired back by saying that if there was really a threat there would still be a unit outside her home.

The suggestion of defunding the police remains an unpopular one, though it has gained traction in a number of places throughout the country.

Radical Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has expressed her wishes to "dismantle the police" in Minneapolis.

Omar described police officers as "a cancer" that people must "amputate."

The same goes for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who recently announced his intentions to defund the police.

On Monday, Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender made a series of head-scratching remarks after her city announced its intent to “dismantle” the Minneapolis Police Department.

Bender told CNN that people whose instinct is to call the police if their homes are broken into enjoy “privilege” and later struggled to answer what people would do if there was a killer on the loose and they couldn’t call the police.
