Black Lives Matters protestors on Tuesday took their fight to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's doorstep after the city's budget was approved earlier in the day. The city's chapter of the organization wants to see the city defund the Los Angeles Police Department. 

According to local reporter Lexis-Olivier Ray, this was a "secret protest."

Chants of "Defund the police! Defund the police! Defund the police!" could be heard. One leader called Garcetti and the city council to abolish LAPD's funding. 

Protestors sat in the middle of the street and taunted law enforcement.

Garcetti's neighbor said protests have taken place outside of the mayor's mansion but nothing has ever been to this extent.
