Biden Wants More Police... But There's A Catch
It's amazing Biden is actually backing the blue here. Dems have been bashing the police on the regular, demanding they be defunded or worse, abolished. They have this irrational idea that defunding the police will somehow better communities, but that could not be further from the truth. Every city that defunded the police has been experiencing higher incidents of crime. So you'd think Dems would have backpedaled, but most refuse to see reason. So it was surprising to see that the Biden Administration is pushing for more police to be hired, that is until you hear the reason why.
"President Biden on Monday convened a group of federal law enforcement and community leaders at the White House to discuss his administration’s comprehensive strategy to reduce gun crimes, saying there is "no one-size-fits-all approach" to combating gun violence and doubling down on the need to hire more police officers and crack down on illegal firearms."
"Our strategy provides, including funding for law enforcement through the American Rescue Plan for states, cities, and to be able to hire police and pay them overtime in order to advance community policing," the president said, adding that the administration’s plan also will "invest in community violence intervention."
"What we want to do, is when we know we utilize trusted community members, and encourage more community policing, we can intervene before the violence erupts," he explained, saying that has been "the consensus in our experience and community violence prevention programs have shown to reduce crime in some cities by 60%."
A White House memo sent Monday morning to state and local officials discussed the need "to put more police officers on the beat," and urged the use of American Rescue Plan funding to hire more law enforcement officers, bringing the police forces back "above pre-pandemic levels in communities experiencing an increase in gun violence associated with the pandemic."
"The administration has also taken aim at "ghost guns" and modified firearms, which are homemade firearms without serial numbers that can be used to trace them, making it difficult for law enforcement to determine where, by whom, or when they were manufactured and to whom they were sold."
Getting the police back is great. It's what our country needs. But Biden has a vendetta against guns and his true motive here could be far more heinous. He has repeatedly called for a ban on assault rifles and with the extra boots on the ground, his intention is likely to get the law enforcement to help him disarm us with excessive Gun Control.
