Did ‘Defund the Police’ Advocate Alyssa Milano Calls Cops on Teen w/ Air Gun?

'It's usually such a quiet community...'

Actress and leftist activist Alyssa Milano, who is an open proponent of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement, was mocked after she reportedly called the police on Sunday thinking a gunman was on her property.

Seven Ventura County Sheriff’s vehicles arrived to investigate, according to the Daily Mail, and a helicopter and K-9 unit were also called to the scene.

“We first noticed the helicopter circling overhead very low and knew something was going on; it’s usually such a quiet community,” said a resident of the neighborhood where Milano lives with her husband and two children.

“Then, we saw all the police cars parked in front of Alyssa’s home,” she continued. “They had their guns at the ready and seemed very serious.”

Police were told that the suspect was “male, 40 years old, with a long rifle.” But the shooter was actually just a 12 year old boy shooting at a squirrel with an air gun.

The teenager turned himself in after police searched for the alleged gunman for nearly three hours, according to a neighbor.

Milano had no problem running to the police for help despite the fact that she has been an ardent supporter of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement since earlier this summer.

In August, she called on her followers to support the People’s Budget L.A., which would strip law enforcement of all but 1.64% of the city’s general funds.

Milano’s former television co-star-turned-rival Rose McGowan, who also has been an outspoken MeToo advocate, was among those who lampooned the purported hypocrisy.

But Ventura police later suggested Milano may not have been the original caller, Yahoo News reported.

“The initial call came from someone else in the neighborhood who had spotted the man with the rifle in the open space,” the office’s Sgt. Marta Bugarin said in a statement.

“Once deputies arrived and began searching the area, our dispatchers received calls from multiple people on multiple streets who provided information about the man with the rifle.”
