Biden expected to push cities to hire more police with stimulus, blame Republicans for rising crime

In a preview of President Joe Biden’s remarks Friday, the White House said he will urge cities to hire more police using federal stimulus funds.

Ostensibly in search of more support from opponents of the radical left – and perhaps to distance himself from said radicals in his party – Biden is expected to tout the use of a minimum $10 billion in funds to bolster police forces in major cities as part of his public safety agenda.

Part of the $1.9 trillion dollar package approved last year has provisions for $350 billion in state and local government funds, a larger share of which Biden allegedly hopes will be allocated to law enforcement.

A Biden regime brown-shirt official told reporters from the NewYork Post, “We still think that a lot of places still have some flexibility in how they spend and that it is worth pressing them, even if they’ve made certain budget plans, to ask themselves again, is there more they can be doing in the preparation this summer for violence prevention and public safety?” the official asked rhetorically.

“President Biden believes that the surge in gun violence that has affected communities across the country over the last year and a half is unacceptable, and his administration is moving decisively to act with a whole-of-government approach as we enter the summer months when cities typically experience a spike in violence,” the White House said.

Shifting blame to Republicans yet again, the spokesperson continued, “Let’s consider what Republicans are doing when it comes to making our communities safer. Congressional Republicans voted unanimously in Congress against every cent of the $10 billion that’s now being used by over 300 communities to put more cops on the beat and invest in neighborhood-based crime prevention programs.”

In New York City alone, robberies are up 44.5 percent from last year. Cases of rape have increased 12 percent and car thefts are up 61.3 percent with 4,467 cars stolen in the city with more than haft of the calendar year to go. Murders are down 13.8 percent from last year but are still up 20 percent from 2020, according to data from the NYPD.

In Washington, D.C., violent crime is up 22 percent along with a 50 percent uptick in robberies, according to a May report.

A recent poll released by CBS found that 61 percent of Americans disapprove of the Biden regime’s handling of the crime epidemic sweeping the nation. Among those included in the poll, 49 percent desire more funding for police while 61 percent want stricter punishments for criminals and 63 percent want increased availability of mental health services, the outlet reported.

“The same poll identified 63 percent disapproval of Biden’s handling of the economy, 62 percent disapproval of his handling of immigration and 55 percent disapproval of his handling of the US response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” the New York Post said.

Biden’s apparent new way of thinking goes against the far-left’s two-plus year mantra of defunding the police, so time will tell if any of his unoriginal words and ideas come to fruition.
