Democrat-run Los Angeles has seen a spike in homicides and shootings amid Black Lives Matter protests and calls from leftist officials to defund the police.

The Los Angeles Police Department reported a 250% rise in homicides, and a 56 percent increase in shootings.

The worrying surge seems to reflect reports elsewhere in the country as riots and looting exploded alongside “peaceful protests” following the death of George Floyd.

Chicago marked its single deadliest 24-hour period in 60 years, with 18 people killed.

The crime has exploded due to police being pulled to secure downtown areas where looters and rioters ravaged the city.

Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez also pushed for the city's police department to be defunded.

L.A's bloodiest week comes as Mayor Eric Garcetti’s announcement the LAPD budget would be cut by up to $150 million, more than two percent of the current total.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez also pushed for the city's police department to be defunded.

But as Neon Nettle reported on Tuesday, Martinez had her own private LAPD detail guarding her home amid the unrest.

Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender declared she was “willing to stand” with those who want the goal of a "police free future."

On Monday, New York City's Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio announced cuts to the NYPD's $6 billion budget

"Speaking to CNN on Monday night, Bender said, “the idea of having a police-free future is very aspirational."

“I think the idea of having a police free future is very aspirational, and I am willing to stand with community members who are asking us to think of that as the goal because so many folks in our community have seen us work on reform.”

On Monday, New York City's Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio announced cuts to the NYPD's $6 billion budget.

The Mayor revealed he was taking money from the city's police department and investing it into youth programs and social services for minority communities.

"We need to do a lot more for our young people," de Blasio said during a press conference.

"We will be moving funding from the NYPD to youth initiatives and social services."
