Los Angeles Police Protective League (PPL) Vice President Jerretta Sandoz made the statement in a comment from her personal Facebook page as the negotiations were being handled in late June. Sandoz wrote in the now-deleted statement that the LA City Council was stacked against police.

“Go somewhere that respects the work you do, and you don’t have to beg for a great contract,” she wrote, according to a screenshot of the comment posted last month and now obtained by the Los Angeles Times. “Go somewhere that has a city council or city manager that openly acknowledges the great work you do, go somewhere that doesn’t have two or more City Council members who hate you (no exaggeration).”

The LA PPL represents the city’s roughly 9,000 police officers. The city has already lost 1,000 officers since 2019. Fewer cops = more crime. Who knew? What a shocker!
