WATCH: Biden Reveals His Support For Police Defunding (VIDEO)

Posted 7.09.2020 by Joe Visconti

Joe Biden was asked about reform for police departments and he gives his ideas on what needs to change.

“Breonna Taylor was only 26 and had decades of hopes and dreams ahead of her, but America’s commitment to white supremacy stole away those relationships and those futures. The leaders of the movement for Black Lives believe that we have been trying to reform police departments for many decades and it is not working. Instead, they believe that the solution is to reduce the number of interactions that civilians have with the police. We can reduce the responsibilities assigned to the police and redirect some of the funding for police into social services, mental health counseling and affordable housing. So, for example, instead of sending two police officers with deadly weapons to that Wendy’s drive-thru in Atlanta, we could have sent a wellness counselor and a tow truck and then Rayshard Brooks would still be alive today and his three daughters would still have their daddy. Are you open to that kind of reform?”
