WATCH: Pence accepts endorsement from police association in Raleigh

Vice President Mike Pence accepted an endorsement on Sept. 3 from the Southern States Police Benevolent Association in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Watch Pence’s remarks in the video player above.

Pence’s speech comes at a time of ongoing unrest over racial injustice spurred by police shootings of Black Americans, most recently Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Asked about Blake, who was left paralyzed from the waist down after being shot in the back seven times by a police officer, Pence said in an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier on Tuesday that it was a “tragic situation.” He later said, “we are not going to reflexively condemn law enforcement” for their role in these incidents.
