Obama: We're going to keep on working with local jurisdictions so that they can begin to make the changes that are necessary. Important for Fraternal Order of Police to acknowledge that this is not good for police. We have to own up to the fact that there are occasionally going to be problems here, just like every other profession. ... "There are some police who aren't doing the right thing."
Obama: Police have to work together with communities to solve the problems.
Obama: "We can't just leave this to the police. I think there are police departments that have to do some soul-searching. I think there are some communities that have to do some soul-searching." The whole country has to do some soul-searching.
Obama: If we really want to solve the problem, we could. It would require everyone to say this is significant. And we don't just pay attention to these communities when a CVS burns or a young man has his spine snapped.
