The mayor of Oakland, California is pushing to reverse a police raid amid a surge in violent crime in the city. On Monday, Mayor Libby Schaaf announced she was working to block plans to divert funding from the police and was looking to hire more police.

The announcement comes as the number of homicides in Oakland rose to 127 after three people, including a retired police officer, were killed over the weekend. The Democratic mayor said she would ask the City Council to return millions of dollars in funding, which was set up to go toward crime prevention programs.

“We will also present an analysis to make the case for a reversal of the planned cuts just eight months from now,” explains Libby. “That analysis would make the case that additional staffing is needed following this outbreak of violence.”

Oakland is one of many liberal cities that are uncovering plans to kill off the police after seeing a rise in violent crime and murder.
