Joe Biden Expresses Support for Redirecting Police Funds to Other Programs

It's clear Joe Biden's far left advisers are starting to change his stance on policing in America. 

During an interview Wednesday with leftist publication This Now, Biden said the police are over militarized, can "become the enemy" and said funding should "absolutely" be reallocated elsewhere. In other words, he's advocating for the defunding of law enforcement as crime across the country continues to skyrocket. 

It was just three weeks ago when Biden claimed he did not support defunding the police. In fact, he proposed an increase in funding for policing programs. 

"Don't defund police, support reforms," Biden wrote in an op-ed for USA Today. "I’ve long been a firm believer in the power of community policing — getting cops out of their cruisers and building relationships with the people and the communities they are there to serve and protect. That’s why I’m proposing an additional $300 million to reinvigorate community policing in our country. Every single police department should have the money it needs to institute real reforms like adopting a national use of force standard, buying body cameras and recruiting more diverse police officers."

Top Biden advisor and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called for complete defunding of police departments across the country. Significant cuts aren't enough. 

So who's really in charge?
