Whoops: Cop-Defunder Activist Alyssa Milano Calls For Police Protection Over ‘Gun Scare’

Written by Wes Walker on September 23, 2020

She doesn’t care if the rough parts of town are short on police protection… so long as someone comes running when she needs help.

How typical of the Hollywood elitists.

Alyssa Milano took a break from backing the ‘defund the police’ cause long enough to call for a massive police response to the threat of a gunman.

Milano, though, who recently tweeted to “Defund the Police” and asked her social media followers to sign on to a petition that “demands a 90 percent reduction in police funding” in the Los Angeles city budget, triggered what neighbors told the Mail was a “massive” police presence after calling 911 to report gunshots on Sunday.

“Alyssa and her talent agent husband … had dialed 911 when they heard what they believed to be gunshots on their 1.39-acre property,” the Daily Mail reported (Milano now challenges that version of events). “They allegedly told the emergency hotline the sound ‘scared their dogs’ and made them feel like the gunman was nearby. A description was given of a suspect to the officers who was ‘male, 40-years old, with long rifle.’”

The couple was reportedly concerned that the alleged gunman could be a stalker; Milano has filed restraining orders against an older man who has broken into her home twice.

The call triggered “a response that included seven Ventura County Sheriffs’ vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter, and one Los Angeles Fire Department team that sat down the street on standby.”

…UPDATE: Milano has issued a statement claiming a neighbor alerted them to a man “dressed in black” holding a rifle. It is not clear, based on her statement, who called the police though her neighbors claim to the Daily Mail that she was the one who alerted authorities. Milano says that is “a lie,” and thanked the Ventura police department for responding to the call regardless. —DailyWire

So long as the negative impact of the policies she demands have any effect on her, she’s happy to push them.
