Former Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Sunday that the idea that a choice must be made between defunding police and reforming departments is “false.”  Abrams, a reported contender to be presumptive presidential nominee Joe BidenJoe BidenFormer Republican officials in talks to form center-right anti-Trump party: report Biden raises concerns with Xi in first call with Chinese leader as president Castro: Trump further incited the mob 'against his own vice president' MORE’s running mate, told ABC’s “This Week” that the country needs “reformation of how police officers do their jobs” and “transformation in how we view the role of law enforcement.” “We are being drawn into a false choice idea,” Abrams said when asked about choosing between reforming police departments or defunding them.“The reality is we need two things,” she said. “We’ll use different language to describe it, but fundamentally, we must have reformation and transformation,” she added later. “We are being drawn into a false choice idea,” Stacey Abrams says when asked about movement to defund the police.“We need reformation of how police officers do their jobs,” and ” a transformation of how we view the world of law enforcement,” she adds.— This Week (@ThisWeekABC) June 14, 2020Abrams said the deaths of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Ky. and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia demonstrate the need for reforms in excessive force tactics, no-knock warrants and citizen arrest laws, respectively.She also said there is “legitimacy” to the “anger” and “outrage” that demonstrators displayed after Brooks’s death in Atlanta and said activists are calling for something to “actually” be done. The “Defund the Police” movement arose out of the protests against the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody among other cases of alleged police brutality against minority populations. These activists call for transferring police funding into social services to help these communities. Biden’s campaign has announced that he is against defunding the police, but backed the “urgent need for reform.” Last week, Abrams told “The Late Show with Steven Colbert” that she had not received any calls from the Biden campaign as it began its vetting process for a vice presidential candidate. But sources have told The New York Times that she is still in the running for a spot on the Democratic ticket.--This report was updated at 1: 10 p.m.
