Joe Biden Wants Congress To Ban Chokeholds And Work On Police Reform

Published

Former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden has called on Congress to take up the fight for police reform now instead of waiting until November.

These comments come just a day after President Trump encouraged the use of military force to try and bring the chaos reigning in many cities across the country as violent protests explode, leading to riots, looting, and even shootings.

Biden wants to see lawmakers ban the use of chokeholds by law enforcement officers with a federal law. Along with this he wants to see a national list of use-of-force best practices and for military grade equipment to stop being transferred over to local police departments.

“If Mitch McConnell can bring in the Senate to confirm Trump’s unqualified judicial nominees who will run roughshod over our Constitution now, it’s time to pass legislation that will give true meaning to our constitutional promise of equal protection under the law,” Biden said.

Biden then went on to vow that he would make dealing with institutional racism one of his top priorities during his 100 days in office, should he defeat Trump in the upcoming presidential election. He also restated that he supports a police oversight commission.

“Bad cops should be dealt with severely and swiftly,” Biden stated.

“We set up in the Justice Department the ability for the Civil Rights Division to go in and look at the practices and policies of police departments. That’s why we were able to stop stop and frisk,” Biden told leaders gathered at the Bethel AME Church. “Reestablish that with more teeth in it because we also have to fundamentally change the way in which police are trained.”

How can Biden claim to deal with institutional racism? Racism is a heart issue, which means that laws aren’t going to be all that effective at ending this vile form of hatred. It requires a change of heart, something legislation alone cannot provide. Only the gospel of Jesus Christ can transform a person inside and out.

Highly disturbing…

Do some people wake up and say, “ya know, I’m gonna do everything in my power to put another person down simply because I hate my country and want to see everything change dramatically!” Antifa radicals probably do. What happened in Portland the other day is a complete disgrace. And it won’t receive an iota of coverage from the mainstream media.

Thousands upon thousands of politically ignorant lefties decided to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and blame every single police officer living today for the death of George Floyd. And now, Americans are paying the price — again. According to people like Bill de Blasio, the protests were called for. Religious gatherings, however, not so much.

AOC Says Crime Spike In New York May Be Due to People Being ‘Scared to Pay Their Rent’

Wait…what?

There are comedians and then there’s AOC. She’s a whole different kind of funny and she doesn’t even realize it. Facepalm. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed on Sunday that the surge in crime in New York City is happening because people are “scared to pay their rent” and because of high unemployment numbers due to the pandemic. Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks and other misleading statements during a Zoom video call that was posted to Twitter by The Hill.

They believe they are helping the black community combat racism by agreeing with the radical wing that law enforcement should be defunded. It literally makes zero sense. From The Daily Wire: On Thursday, Ami Horowitz released a new video to YouTube in which he asks white and black New Yorkers if they “support abolishing the police.” Their answers are…quite different. […] When asked about the relationship between the NYPD and members of the community, a man wearing a blue Nike hat claims that “it’s pretty good,” noting that “all police officers are not bad,” and that there are ones who “really care about the people and really want to help the people.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv5-mc4U_Zw&feature=emb_title
