"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.
"I don't think he's been paying attention," Armstrong said. "I'm comfortable with my background talking about this."
