Vice-presidential hopeful Kamala Harris joins push to defund the police

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has officially joined the campaign to defund the police, appearing in a joint interview with transgender Hollywood star Laverne Cox to promote the idea on live TV on Thursday. 

In the interview with “Watch What Happens Live” with host Andy Cohen, Harris said that “For far too long, the status quo thinking has been to believe that to put more police on the street, you’re going to have more safety. And that’s just wrong. That’s not how it works.”

She pointed to different solutions, such as increasing school budgets and expanding access to mental health treatment and resources to address crime in low-income neighborhoods. “We have to reimagine how we achieve public safety,” she explained.

Her record as a prosecutor and Attorney General says otherwise.

Harris made a name for herself in California politics as a zealous “tough on crime” prosecutor for decades. Her big break came when she unseated liberal, soft-on-crime San Fransisco District Attorney Terence Hallinan in 2003 after she “carefully cultivated a base of support among police officers, domestic violence advocates, wealthy donors,” as The Intercept puts it.

She went on to become the state’s Attorney General using the same tactics. When Harris launched her presidential campaign in 2019, she tried to pretend that her well-documented history as an aggressive prosecutor never existed. Lara Bazelon, associate professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law, wrote in a 2019 New York Times op-ed:

Kamala Harris claims to be a champion of criminal justice reform. But as a prosecutor, first as San Francisco’s District Attorney and later as California’s Attorney General, she was anything but.

Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.

When Kamala Harris was climbing the political ladder in the 1990s and 2000s, it was fashionable for Democrats to be tough on crime. Now, as the times have changed, and she’s putting all that behind her as she auditions to be Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s running mate.

  1. Harris is a Crooked Bed Hopping Bit-h that is now teaming up with Hollywood Freaks. Harris never supported the law

    1. HARRIS WANTS TO …..DEFUND THE POLICE….WHAT A POS THEN IF THAT IS THE FACTS THAN AMERICAN PEOPLE GIVE KAMALA HARRIS THE CROOK A PHONE CALL IF YOU NEED THE POLICE TO HELP YOU IF THE POLICE IS DEFUNDED…
      SHE NEEDS TO GET OFF THE STAGE AND JUMP BACK INTO BED….

      1. so correct Jan…… Agree with you also Larry Gains. If Democrats win the Senate and WH America is sunk. No more freedoms.

    2. HARRIS WANTS TO BE THE NEXT VP WITH BIDEN REMEMBER KARMALA HARRIS YOU WERE THAT LITTLE GIRL ON THE BUS AND BIDEN PUT YOU THERE. YOU THINK YOU WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT? IN YOUR DREAMS.

  2. I think Kamala Harris is the most wishy washy despicable human to run for any office in this country——bar none. She fits nicely into Clinton’s “Basket of Deplorables”, not because she is a Trump supporter, but because she has no shame, no morals, no conscience, and no standards. I would not listen to her for 5 minutes-why waste my time on her nonsense? Wow-I suspect if you look up “hypocrite” in the dictionary, her picture would be right there, along with all the other Dems in power.

    1. Glad you told it like it is!!!! However, the current protesters do not read anything about the candidates they just believe what they tell them. We will defund the police, we will put the millions of dollars in your neighborhoods, we will
      Give you free housing, free medical, free money, etc., whatever they want them to hear so they can get their votes. Oh, and we will give you money for abortions so we can reduce your population, which is what the founder of Planned Parenthood, Sanger stated. Go back to DEMONRAT Lyndon Johnson and look up what he reportedly said about giving them everything and the Democrats would always get their votes!! Why they can’t see
      All this Is beyond my understanding!!

  3. Kamala Harris has slepted (FU%^) her way to the top and will do anything to continue her way as a SLUT!!!!
    She needs to go!!~!!
    She threatened our democracy by stating that “she would make white people pay”!!!!!
    # harris to resign

    1. What does the current White People need to pay for? I didn’t own slaves, my parents didn’t own slaves, my grandparents didn’t own slaves, and to my knowledge my great grandparents didn’t own slaves. So what am I suppose to pay for? Am I suppose to pay for the fact that I worked my butt off putting myself through college, working a full time job while raising a child (husband helped), keeping house, cooking, washing, ironing, sewing, etc….. and it paid off when I got a good job with the Fed’s. Tell me what am I suppose to be paying?

  4. How abt this on schools for our kids …… why couldn’t we take the tax dollars that are alloted for each child and let the parents choose the school of choice for their children and be able to channel the tax dollars to that school instead of into the public school system which is failing the inner city for years….. that would level the playing field for inner city parents…… better known as SCHOOL CHOICE …… let the school system compete for students which in turn I would think greatly improve the quality of what is taught … why do you think home schooling has grown and private schools …. come people lets wake up……. SOON

  5. She is just plain stupid ! These moronic people think that fewer cops= less crime ! Look a New York, they reduced police presence, CRIME UP 42% !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seattle want’s their cops to not carry guns, and to send social workers to “talk to the people”, instead of sending police, that should work just fine if you want to kill off your social workers ! Are these democrat/socialists on LSD or some other hallucinogenic ! GOD HELP AMERICA WITH THESE MORONS IN CHARGE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Do they think that criminals are going to sit and behave, while they get all their Socialist programs going, so administration can pull in big money? I’m sure they know how the Socialist/Communist Utopia works, except they left out, how they will keep order in the meantime. Perhaps, it will be how Raz in Seattle is ruling, his small little group. They had rapes, murder, blackmail, and lawlessness in the community. They still had to call the police, though, that was who they intended to defund and remove. The Seattle taxpayers are suing, because the mayor and governor have allowed this lawlessness, to destroy their businesses, their city and government property. Hopefully, other residents in the Democrat led, worst cities of America, will sue the Democrat leadership for the destruction of their cities and businesses. Harris compromises any values she has left, to stay in with the radicals.

  7. Kamala Harris is a typical Democratic Fraud.
    She will say anything that she thinks will get her elected.
    She has always been tough on Crime, but now that the BLM Movement has gotten some traction she is a Defund the Police advocate.
    To Defund the Police is thee stupidest idea ever.

    1. I BET KARMALA HARRIS HAS POLICE WATCHING HER HOUSE. JUST LIKE PELOSI ANOTHER TWO FACE SHE ALSO HAS POLICE PROTECTION HOUSING HER GROUNDS AND HER HOUSE. THESE DEMO RATS ARE FRAUDS. THEY DONT WANT BORDERS, NO GUNS ANYMORE BUT THESE DEM ORATS HAVE SECURTIY AND GUNS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND THERE FAMILIES. VOTE THESE RATS OUT IN NOVEMBER THE WHOLE LOT OF DEMO RATS STARTING WITH KARMALA AND PELOSI AND THERE MOB. VOTE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP IN A LANDSLIDE IN 2020

  8. Another Politician out for herself and not interested in representing the people. She is a fraud just like mostly ALL DEMOCRATS these days.
    Defunding Police is a ludicrous idea.
    Policy changes, better training and tying salaries’ increases to performance along with unhindered accountability for actions…that’s what is needed. Which will require INCREASED funding. No one wants more corrupt, uncaring and without morals or standards in our elected officials..even the dumbest of dumbs that are being led to slaughter should recognize that.

  9. Lead by example lady. Defund your own police protection too and pay for your own protection out of your extravagant pay that you don’t need

    1. Great idea, how about all the Dems have their paid for security removed. See how quickly they change their minds about defunding the police.

  10. If you want to defund the police Kamala, start with the Capital Police. You and other members of Congress would last till lunch!

  11. I think she is a Liar and will do anything to accomplish her goals. She should never be allowed to be in public office in America.

  12. Harris is not Constitutionally eligible to be president or vice-president, she is not a Natural Born Citizen, both her parents are immigrants and she is a 14th amendment anchor baby and as a first generation born citizen, she is ineligible.

  13. Kamala Harris is dangerous for this country. She didn’t care about blacks when she applied her corrupt justice as AG in California and you can see how fast she’s willing to let all that go and now she’s trained her disgusting and racist eye on the white race. Good luck you Democrats who want to vote for Biden. He’s just a puppet for the hateful and racist Left who will run the country in the background. Whoever he decides on as his VP will take over quickly and I guarantee there won’t be any debates with Biden. The Democrats won’t allow it. You watch and see.

  14. Kamala Harris is another one like Pelosi…..off her rocker. She is not for Americans and is dangerous for our country.

  15. just a street hooker looking to find her a demo-communist pimp to pimp her out. she is not for anyone but herself, and she will turn on her pimp, ask willie brown

  16. I don’t care for her one bit. She’s nothing but a crook. She like pelosi. Two peas in the same pod.

  17. Defunding or abolishing the police is so freaking stupid I cant even believe ANYONE with a brain falls for this demented crap. All these defund advocates all have their own armed security. Please make them defund their security so as they can peacefully talk a criminal out of killing them.

  18. Kamala is the worst possible choice, well Beto would be worse as would Mad Max but not by much. Joe won’t make it four years and she would be the end of the US as we know it. No telling who she would be willing “To do” to become leader of the socialist world, her goal>

  19. A vote for the Far Left Radical Liberal Democrats will destroy our country. They want to do away with us being safe, turn our country into a Socialism, Marx Communist one, no border walls, Medicare for All (even illegals), the New Green Deal-no fossil fuels(oil & gas), no airplanes, late term abortions, do away with the Electrol Vote- so we cannot vote but some big Demos states can, Natl. Mail-in ballots( where many will cheat), tear down skyscrapers then rebuild them, support dismantling the police, support the destruction of our statues(our history), Nancy Pelosi said all the statues in the White House should be taken down. Maxine Waters stirred up riots against Conservatives & now she is saying it is racist not to turn Washington DC into a state. that way more Demos would get elected. The Democrats hate our president who has done so much good for us & they give him no support because they want him to look bad. That is why they are keeping this destruction, chaos going to try to blame our president when they are the ones doing all the damage. They want to keep us all locked-up so our economy will not be good like it was before the virus hit. Joe Biden would make a very weak president. He would be “led by the nose “by the Radical Left & they would run the country; not him. The Demos have become so evil & hateful & only want power over us. They promise everything FREE & the young people fall for it & Socialism. Venezuela lost everything under Socialism. Young people do not understand it. Nothing is free. It is so scary what the Democrats are doing to our country. Looks like we are going to have to protect ourselves. Crime has increased 400% because the criminals know that the Demos Gov. & Mayors do not support our police & they will know they can get away with any crime; even murder. Be careful what you vote for in 2020. We can go to the poles and vote, wear mask, rubber gloves & carry cleaning lotion. The Demos want Natl. mail in ballots knowing that even illegals & others will cheat on them. They try everything evil they can to get complete government power over us & we will lose everything under them like other Socialized countries have. The Fake media, the Demos, MSNBC, CNN, The Press, Anderson, Tapper, Brian Williams, Joy, Al Sharpton, Rachael Maddox, Chris Hayes, Veldi, Hardrock, New York Times, & The Washington Post & others LIE all the time about our president we elected in 2016. We can see through all their lies. God help us. It is a very scary time. Without law & order we will have no country & our enemies will be glad that we are destroying ourselves within. That is the BLM & Antifa terrorist gang & some angry protesters want for us. We will be voting for our grandchildren & great grandchildren. I plan to vote for the one that wants Law & order; which is our present president—
    President Trump!!!
