Former undeclared presidential candidate, Mayor Garcetti, has made a proposal to cut the LAPD budget in a range of $150-$250,000,000. Now, I always try to find a silver lining. Here it is, despite my now facing a loss of my own home with this proposal: 1. in this new brave world, my fellow residents who are liberals/movie stars/entertainment personalities will have their homes and businesses from the Hollywood Hills to Malibu participating in this new experiment. This includes Barbra Striessand who lives in Malibu because there are regional compacts of mutual aid between fire and police departments. 2. police violence will be greatly reduced. The proposal of the New York community organizer that armed residents be organized to monitor the police will be adopted by all members of the community ranging from gang members to owners of big estates, from the humble day workers of the community to the white collar workers. Gun sales will boom! 3. as the new saying "we're all in it together" goes, I hope that this moron and his clones on the City Council don't retire and move away. Stay for the fun and games.
