Biden: FUND the police
Biden calling so vocally for funding police will likely deflate the defund movement, but we don’t want it to revive down the road.
From Daily Caller. President Joe Biden spoke out against defunding the police and instead called for more police, better training and increased accountability during Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
“I know what works: Investing in crime prevention and community police officers who’ll walk the beat, who’ll know the neighborhood, and who can restore trust and safety,” the president said Tuesday. “So let’s not abandon our streets. Or choose between safety and equal justice….”
Bided called on Congress “to pass proven measures to reduce gun violence” by passing universal background checks, banning “assault weapons and high-capacity magazines” and repealing “the liability shield that makes gun manufacturers the only industry in America that can’t be sued” during his Tuesday address.
“These laws don’t infringe on the Second Amendment,” the president said. “They save lives….”
During the portion of his speech focused on crime, Biden issued a call for Congress to pass his request for $200 million more for community violence intervention programs. He called on Congress to approve his $300 million budget request to increase the DOJ’s community policing hiring grant program, too….
