In 2014, when Joe was VP, three black men were killed by racist cops. In three separate incidents.

Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner.

What did Joe do as VP to help the situation, and ensure that racist cops would be cleansed from local Police Departments?

How do we know he would be an effective leader in cleansing racism from police departments, if elected? How did he show this during his eight years in office as VP?

The officer who shot Tamir Rice was fired...and last I checked while that is not justice served...he was not allowed to be a police officer anymore...in the Ferguson issue...there was an FBi investigation opened..not sure what else you think should have been done...ultimately the officer was cleared in this shooting...

However, officers in Atlanta weren't cleared in the shooting of Kathryn Johnston...and they went to prison

Same with the officer who shot George Floyd.

What is your definition of "racist cop?"

has he been convicted? What did Trump do to persue justice for Floyd? oh that is right..he called the people protesting terrorists.

Because the people protesting were injuring and killing other Americans.

Biden is claiming his America would be different. Yet when he was VP, there were three incidents in a row of racist cops killing black Americans.

How did he show effective leadership during this time?

Which is the option where Biden teargassed people so he could stand in front of a church with an upside down bible while encouraging supporters to take up arms and go vigilante against the protestors?

If you wish to bash Biden...fine. But what about Trump's efforts? We do know the answer there to your question if you also had included Trump: nothing.

But Biden did say this: "Number one, cops have a right to go home and see their families at night. And number two, everyone — regardless of race, ethnicity or immigration status — has a right to be treated with dignity and respect," he said. "And the only way that happens is if we see one another...and that only happens if we know one another."

Biden: Police and minorities must 'know each other' - CNNPolitics

I don't see Trump on that level.

Trump issued an Executive Order on police reform, and got behind Tim Scott’s efforts to move a police reform bill through the Senate.

Democrats fought the Police Reform Bill, and the liberal media barely covered the EO.

All Obama did in response to the three incidents in 2014 was give speeches, Biden didn’t do a thing.

In response to your second paragraph, this is what liberals are really arguing. Trump has a hardline stance on immigration, therefore he incites racial tensions.

This is asinine.

Having a hardline stance on immigration, for economic reasons, is completely legitimate. If anyone has the impression that Trump doesn’t care about minority citizens, that is CNNs fault for fabricating that narrative for the past four years.

The Michael Brown shooting was found to be justified by Obama's own DOJ. "Stop don't shoot" was literally never said during that altercation.

To be more fair in your comparison is one should look at what Biden as VP did and what Pence as VP did. So tell us, what has Pence done to help in the current unrest and police shootings?

Nice try, but forget it. This election Isn't going to be about what Biden did or didn't do as V-P, It's going to be a referendum on Trump and what's in his baggage.
Your only hope is that Russia will dig up or manufacture a big enough dirt bomb to change the result. Even then, timing will be critical.

You're right. At least on that part.

The way it works is that if they kill a black person then they are racist. We don’t consider any of the behavior of the person that got shot because even doing that much is racist. That’s the way things work when all white peoples are racist and have built a racist system to preserve their white privilege.

I trust the good people of this country to realize that the choice is not Trump vs. a vacant White House.

What Biden did or didn’t do as VP is absolutely what this election is about. If we really want an accurate picture of “Biden’s America”

Unless Democrats are trying to con all of us into thinking Joe is something that he’s not.

George Floyd wasn't shot. He died when an officer put his knee on his neck for 9 minutes.

Unbelievable ignorance.

Lol chill.

I typed “shot” instead of knelt on neck. I will repent.

What are your thoughts on how Biden reacted to those three racist police shootings in 2014?

Biden did absolutely nothing in 2014 or any other of the 47 years he was in the federal government.

And he has the nerve to blame Trump for similar incidents.

Biden is a damn hypocrite who cannot ever get anything done.

As President, Biden would have NO power to "cleanse[sing] racism from [state and local] police departments. He simply lies to us daily about this.
