The Real Joe: Law Enforcement’s Case Against Biden

While Joe Biden tries to hide his 47 years of failure, be sure to check out TheRealJoe.com to learn more about his disastrous record.

THE FACTS:

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN HAS LOST THE SUPPORT OF AMERICA'S LAW ENFORCEMENT

During the first presidential debate, President Donald Trump pressed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden to name any law enforcement groups that he is backed by, which Biden did not answer.

During Monday's NBC Town Hall, Biden admitted that he no longer has the support of law enforcement.

A wife of a police officer asked Biden what he would do to ensure her husband's safety in the wake of the 'troubling' defund the police movement, to which he avoided answering the question and said he has had the support of law enforcement 'up until this year.'

DESPITE TRYING TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THE 'DEFUND THE POLICE' MOVEMENT, MEMBERS OF BIDEN'S CAMPAIGN AND HIS OWN RUNNING MATE HAVE THROWN THEIR SUPPORT BEHIND THE MOVEMENT'S GOALS

Biden campaign videographer Sara Pearl retweeted a comment that said while 'pigs are sweet, intelligent and compassionate,' police officers are 'monsters' who 'don't deserve to be called pigs.'

Pearl also tweeted a meme asking people to stop calling cops 'pigs' because pigs are 'highly intelligent and empathetic creatures who would never racially profile you.'

On June 1, Pearl Tweeted '#DefundPolice.'

Molly Doris-Pierce, Biden's National Disability Engagement Director, liked a tweet in which Lisa Bender, the head of the Minneapolis City Council, said, 'we are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. '

Doris-Pierce also liked a tweet in which Asma Nizami said, 'I personally think it's really cool how we all went from learning how to make banana bread to learning how to abolish the police in a matter of weeks.'

Doris-Pierce also liked a tweet in which Charles P. Pierce said, 'the whole 'defund' framing is necessary.'

At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment.

Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund is a suspect who shot at police during the riots in May, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender.'

In June 2020, when asked if she supported Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti diverting $150 million from police funding, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said, 'I applaud Eric Garcetti for doing what he's done.'In June 2020, Harris told The New York Times that 'it is status quo thinking to believe that putting more police on the streets creates more safety' and that way of thinking is 'just wrong.< /a>'

WHILE THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS OPPOSE REDUCING POLICE FUNDING, BIDEN HAS CALLED FOR REDIRECTING FUNDING AWAY FROM POLICE DEPARTMENTS AND HAS DEFENDED THE VIOLENT PROTESTS ERUPTING ALL OVER THE COUNTRY

Biden has called those participating in the violent protests that have broken across the United States 'peaceful protestors ' and has faced criticism for praising protestors while staying silent on the shooting of David Dorn.

On July 8, 2020, Biden said funding should 'absolutel y' be redirected from police departments.

In early June 2020, when asked about Los Angeles's efforts to defund the police, Biden said such funding decisions should be made on a local level.

According to a recent Pew Poll, 'forty-two percent say that spending on their local police should stay about the same as it is now, and 31% say that spending should be increased.'

According to a recent Gallup Poll, 81% of African Americans would like police to spend the same amount of time of more time in their communities.

According to the same Gallup Poll, 86% of all Americans would like police to spend the same amount of time of more time in their communities.

MULTIPLE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS HAVE CRITICIZED BIDEN FOR HIS WEAK STANCES ON LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MAJOR POLICE ORGANIZATIONS WHO SUPPORTED BIDEN IN THE PAST ARE NOW SUPPORTING PRESIDENT TRUMP

Police unions and their members feel 'increasingly alienat ed' by Biden.

Biden's current policy positions has 'created a fissure with law enforcement groups, leaving many who once supported him frustrated by what they regard as political posturing by their one-time ally.'

Larry Cosme, President of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, said Biden has 'shifted 180 degrees.'

Bill Johnson, the Executive Director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said Biden 'kept moving left and fell off the deep e nd.'

Johnson said, when it comes to Biden, 'police are shaking their heads because he used to be a stand-up guy who backed law enforcement' but 'he's writing a sad final chapter when it comes to supporting law enforcem ent.'

Detective's Endowment Association President Paul DiGiacomo said, 'it just shows that he is a typical politician and just goes with whichever way the wind b lows.'

DiGiacomo added that he once considered Biden a reliable ally.

DiGiacomo said, 'it's not popular to support the police now' and Biden is 'just using opportunities that are going on throughout this country to condemn all police, which is u nfair.'

DiGiacomo said, 'Joe Biden was a very strong supporter of them years ago,' he's been 'kidnapped now by the anti-police rhetoric,' and 'there's a big question amongst our members if Joe Biden is going to stand up and support the police.'

The National Association of Police Organizations, which endorsed Biden in both the 2008 and 2012 elections, endorsed President Trump this election for his 'steadfast and very public support' for law enforcement.

National Association of Police Organizations President Michael McHale said President Trump's support is needed 'during this time of unfair and inaccurate opprobrium being directed at our members by s o many.'

HARRIS: 'I support investing in communities so that they become more healthy and, therefore, more safe. Right now, what we're seeing in America is many cities spend over one-third of their entire city budget on policing. But, meanwhile, we've been defunding public schools for years in America. We've got to re-examine what we're doing with American taxpayer dollars and ask the question, are we getting the right return on our investment? Are we actually creating healthy and safe communities?
