- We love you!

JOE BIDEN: We just voted.


JOE BIDEN: And Jill is off to do an interview. But thanks for taking the time to cover it. And as we are.

There is no excuse whatsoever for the looting and the violence. None whatsoever. I think to be able to protest is totally legitimate. It's totally reasonable.

But I think that the looting is just-- as the victim's father said, do not do this. It's not what my son-- you're not helping, you're hurting. You're not helping my son.

And there are certain things we're going to have to do as we move along. And I think-- I know the local folks in Philadelphia are thinking about it as well. And that is how we deal with-- how you diminish the prospect of lethal shooting in circumstances like the one we saw.

That's going to be part of the commission I set up to determine how we deal with these changes. But there's no excuse for the looting.
