Petitioning California legislature

Withhold all state funds allocated for LAPD, Oakland, Long Beach Police.

Over the last two months an increasing militarized police in Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Oakland, CA harrassed, brutually beat, arrested and intimidated peaceful demonstrators exercising their First Amendment rights.

Loss of First Amendment freedoms, for even minimal periods of time, normally constitutes irreparable injury.
West's ALR Digest Civil Rights k1457(1), ALRDG 78K1457(1)

If these local communities wish their law enforcement to behave in this way, that is between them and their city council. These Californian tax payers and citizens do not support and refuse to support these rogue law enforcement agencies, therefore we demand all state and federal funds allocated to these and any other similar organizations be withheld immediately pending a public review, and reforms are instituted to protect Californians.
