Biden also spoke on the heavy expectations of police officers, stating that “being a cop today is a hell of a lot harder than it’s ever been.”

“It always amazes me how the public doesn’t fully understand what we expect of our law enforcement officers,” he said. “We expect you to be people ready to stand in the way and take a bullet for us. We expect you to be able to track down the bad guys. We expect you to be everything. We expect everything of you, and it’s beyond the capacity of anyone to meet the expectations.”
