President Biden expressed condolences to the families of two FBI agents killed while trying to serve a warrant in connection with a child pornography and violence against children investigation in Florida Tuesday, then added that the “vast, vast majority” of U.S. law enforcement officers were “decent, honorable people.””
They put their lives on the line and it’s a hell of a price to pay,” Biden said from behind his desk in the Oval Office. “And every single day…by and large the vast, vast majority of these men and women are decent, honorable people who put themselves on the line. We owe them.”
He said he had not yet had the chance to speak with the victims’ families and did not plan to do so Tuesday.
