During a Wednesday interview with the leftist Now This News, Joe Biden said he supported defunding police.
The Democrat presidential nominee said police using surplus military equipment “become the enemy” when they go into unfamiliar neighborhoods.
“Surplus military equipment for law enforcement, they don’t need that! The last thing you need is an up-armored Humvee coming into a neighborhood, it’s like the military invading,” Biden said.
“They don’t know anybody. They become the enemy. They’re supposed to be protecting these people.”
As he was concluding a comment, interviewer Ady Barkan asked Biden if he agrees that the government can “redirect” some police funding.
Yes, absolutely,” Biden replied.
