Vice President Biden, Attorney General Holder Announce Recovery Act Funding to Support Law Enforcement

Recovery Act Funds to Add Police Officers to the Streets; Build Safer Communities

Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder today announced $1 billion in grants to fund the hiring and rehiring of law enforcement officers all across the country under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The grants will be awarded to 1,046 law enforcement agencies from all 50 states and will provide 100 percent of the approved salary and benefits for 4,699 officers for three years. Police departments receiving the grants will then be required to retain the grant-funded positions for a fourth year.

Sure, the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed McCain for President, but with Obama’s recent P.R. disaster with the police (and much of America for that matter), it might not be too early to start using taxpayer money to try and buy not only forgiveness, but also a 2012 endorsement.

But on the downside for Obama, this could be viewed by community activist types as a billion dollars being pumped into the effort to unjustly arrest minorities — even those who are half-Irish (as an Irishman myself, I take offense that Obama played on the stereotype by using alcohol to lure Gates and Crowley to the White House).

Historically unreliable sources tell me that a full $12 million of this police stimulus announced by Biden may go toward financing the addition of a new Miranda right: The right to meet your arresting officer’s momma outside.
