Graham, however, stated Wednesday that it would not address the bigger problem.
Graham stated in a Wednesday interview that there is a lack of prosecutions and we have declared war on police officers, which is backfiring on those who did it.
Richmond, a Louisianan ex-member of Congress, stated that the senator does not have any clue on the matter and pointed the finger at Republicans for their inability to support crime intervention efforts within Congress.
Last year, Congress was trying to pass a rescue program. It wasn't the rescue plan, but an emergency relief plan that would help cash-strapped cities and lay off firefighters. The Republicans opposed it. In fact, funding didn't come until the American Rescue Plan.
Richmond said that Republicans are good at sticking to talking points... But the truth is, the Republicans defunded police and funded crime intervention.
