We’ve gone from the Summer of 2020 where Democrats across the country demanded the defunding and dismantling of police to now, the Biden Administration saying the spike in violent crime across the country is the result of police being underfunded.
“the reasons for the surge in crime. Gun violence is a huge reason for the surge in crime. Underfunding of some police departments and their need for additional resources — something the President has advocated for consistently through the course of his career — that’s something we know we need to take action on. And it is absolutely true that he will not be satisfied or complacent when officers are being gunned down or when Americans have to worry about whether they can safely ride the subway or bus.
That should not be a political issue. He’s somebody who has had a long career of — many decades — of fighting for funding for police departments, for local communities in order to reduce crime.”
Notice: not one mention of bail reform and the far-left district attorneys and judges in the nation’s largest cities repeatedly freeing violent criminals. The police can catch these thugs, but what’s the points if they are back on the street in a matter of hours.
