DEFUND THE POLICE! Biden backs funding more police to fight crime wave in Democrat cities.

He said officials in high crime areas can hire more law-enforcement personnel using coronavirus relief funding.

Mr Biden’s crime-fighting strategy calls for curtailing rogue gun dealers and firearms trafficking.

Announcing his five-point strategy at the White House on Wednesday, the president urged cities and states to use $350bn (£250bn) of funding from a Covid-19 relief bill on public safety efforts, including adding more police officers, even beyond pre-pandemic levels.

“It means more police officers, more nurses, more counsellors, more social workers or community violence interrupters to help resolve issues before they escalate into crimes,” the president said.
