Former Vice President Joe Biden became the target of leftist ire on social media after saying during the 2020 Democratic National Convention that “most cops are good.”
Biden made the remarks during a panel discussion on police reform.
“Most cops are good, but the fact is, the bad ones have to be identified and prosecuted and out, period,” the Democratic presidential nominee said Monday, during the first night of the convention.
But on Twitter, many leftists took issue with Biden’s assertion that “most cops are good.”
“Most cops are good… Gwen, how are you doing?” says @JoeBiden to the mother of Eric Garner.
Are you for real, @TheDemocrats?!

“Most cops are good” is objectively wrong and also what 80% of the electorate believes.

he says “most cops are good” and then he immediately asks Eric Garner’s mother how she’s doing ……. and he refers to his murder by the police as him “dying” ……..
