Axios last month that she is not a supporter of reducing police funding but can’t stop what the foundation funds. “She emphasized that as a board member she has no control over the foundation’s grants,” the outlet reported. But more than 100 Georgia sheriffs see things differently. They shared a statement on June 27 condemning Abrams and supporting Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. “Stacey Abrams has repeatedly shown complete disdain for law enforcement and the risk we take every day putting our lives on the line to serve our communities,” they said. [firefly_poll] “Ms. Abrams actively serves on the governing board of — and has profited from — an anti-police organization which openly advocates for abolishing prisons and stripping local police departments of their funding,” the 102 sheriffs said. “Stacy Abrams also supports proposals that put criminals back on our streets and clears their criminal record, and she opposed legislation to crack down on human trafficking when she served in the state legislature,” they said. Abrams has used opaque language in calling for money to be steered away from the police. “We have to have a transformation of how we view the role of law enforcement, how we view the construct of public safety, and how we invest not only in the work that we need them to do to protect us but the work that we need to do to protect and build our communities,” she said in June 2020, according to Axios. “And that’s the conversation we’re having: We’ll use different language to describe it, but fundamentally we must have reformation and transformation,” Abrams said. In an interview with PBS, the Democrat also called for the “redistributive allocation of dollars” from police budgets “so that we are not simply investing in public safety, but we’re building a safer public through education, through health care, through food security, through affordable housing.” She added that these things “have to be part of a holistic vision of what America should look like, what law enforcement and what society should look like in the 21st century.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
