Protesters Demand Police Protection During 'Defund the Police' Rally - WATCH
Activists say they need police presence, citing their own safety
A video of a police officer went viral over the weekend after he exposed the hypocrisy of the "defund the police" movement.
The unidentified police officer explains in the video that he was called to provide security for protesters.
The officer highlights the irony of protesters calling for protection from cops while demanding that police forces are abolished.
"So I come in this morning and we're informed there's gonna be a protest to 'defund the police'," the cop recalls.
"Well, that's fine, I like protests," he explains.

"Except they requested a police presence, you know, for their safety, at the 'defund the police' event," he continued.
"I s**t you not," he adds.

It was not clear where the officer worked, as he had removed his badge from his uniform.
It was presumably taken off so that his location could not be identified.
This news comes after it recently emerged that leftist billionaire George Soros is linked to the "defund the police" movement.
As Neon Nettle previously reported, an anti-deportation group affiliated with Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) is one of the groups behind the movement calling defund or abolish the police, law courts, and even close prisons.
In fact, the Soros-affiliated group has been involved in the “defund the police” movement as far back as early 2016 — way before the death of George Floyd brought it to national attention.
The Soros-affiliated group is called Organized Communities Against Deportation (OCAD) and is tied to the liberal financier's radical OSF.
While many Americans see the current protests and riots as organic reactions to the death of Floyd, many organized groups are seizing on the momentum.
