“Good cops know who the bad cops are.”

That’s what Rep. Kelly Armstrong said on this episode of Plain Talk, addressing a question about what we can do to solve the problems with racism and abuse in America’s law enforcement agencies.

Armstrong, a formal criminal defense attorney, argues that most law enforcement officers are good people doing their best with a tough job. He’d like to see them given incentive to “weed out” the bad apples in their own midst.

He also addressed¬†an accusation on Facebook¬†from his opponent, presumptive Democratic House candidate Zach Rankerud, that he’s been silent and inactive during the George Floyd protests.
