Stacey Abrams has weighed in on the "defund the police" movement with a remark seemingly crafted to score brownie points for Joe Biden's running mate pick.

The Democrat was asked on CNN about her thoughts on defunding the police.

Abrams said it was a "false choice" to talk about either supporting or abolishing the police, but agreed on reducing money given to police departments.

"We have to reallocate resources, so, yes," she said.

"If there is a moment where resources are so tight that we have to choose between whether we murder black people or serve black people, then absolutely: Our choice must be service."

But Abram's suggestion that police exist for the purpose of murdering black people is another radical leftist talking point filled with falsehoods.

Just over 1,000 people were shot and killed by police in 2019, with only one-quarter of them black, according to The Washington Post.

Moreover, those statistics for white people was nearly double the number.

However, Justice Department data shows that black people are involved in far more violent crime.

In crimes relating to homicide, black people are both the victims and offenders, with a rate 6 and 7 times higher more than white people.

Conservative commentator Candace Owens earlier this month faced a liberal backlash after she pointed out statistics relating to police shootings on black people.

Owens also stated she would not hold George Floyd up as a martyr due to his criminal record.

She tweeted at the time:

George Floyd's death earlier this month was ruled a homicide, and he died from asphyxiation due to the police officer kneeling on his neck, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner has confirmed.
