Hundreds of Black Lives Matter activists gathered outside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's home on Saturday for the fifth day straight. This comes following speculation that Garcetti is in consideration for a position in prospective presidential-elect Joe Biden's cabinet.

BLM is protesting Garcetti following his refusal to further defund the LAPD by $1.8 billion, which is about 90% of their budget. The Los Angeles City Council previously voted 12-2 on Garcetti's proposal to slash $150 million from the police department's budget annual.

The previous budget cut forced the LAPD to dissolve its sexual assault unit and animal cruelty task force.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department, tasked with protecting the mayor, can be seen forming a line in front of his home.

Unhappy with Garcetti's refusal to commit to abolishing the police, the protesters chanted "Garcetti is the worst mayor in the nation don't chose him for transportation!"

He reportedly has been under consideration for secretary of Transportation or Housing and Urban Development. Nonetheless, when asked on whether he is interested in a position, Garcetti has stated it "was one of the last things on my mind."
