Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist nailed it in this clip below. It’s short and accurate. If the Democrats wanted to reform the police, they would have done it when the Republicans had a popular plan. They don’t want that plan. They want to destroy the police so they can federalize them. That’s their plan.
Mollie notes the real problems with crime and the media:
