Biden Audio: Don’t Talk About Police Reform Until After Georgia Runoffs – “That’s how they beat the living hell out of us across the country.”
In leaked audio obtained by the Intercept, Joe Biden says ‘defund the police’ was used to ‘beat the living hell’ out of Democrats. “That’s how they beat the living hell out of us across the country, saying that we’re talking about defunding the police…”.

Biden also warned the civil rights leaders that pressure on the incoming administration around police reform could hurt the party’s chances in the Georgia Senate runoffs, claiming that the Republicans’ ability to define that party as in favor of defunding the police is “how they beat the living hell out of us across the country.”
Biden insisted that his commitment to police reform was unwavering but argued that the branding effort had done too much damage.
Biden also said: “I also don’t think we should get too far ahead ourselves on dealing with police reform in that, because they’ve already labeled us as being ‘defund the police’ anything we put forward in terms of the organizational structure to change policing — which I promise you, will occur. Promise you.”
