FBI Director Comey: This Is a 'Difficult Time' in Law Enforcement

Friday, 19 June 2015 04:23 PM EDT

FBI Director James Comey says officers must work to bridge a gap with the communities they protect.

Comey spoke Friday in Baltimore, where anger turned to rioting this spring following the death of a man injured in police custody. Six officers are charged in Freddie Gray's arrest and death. Meanwhile, homicides are up, arrests are down and the police commissioner says residents are surrounding officers as they do their jobs.

Comey described police and communities as "two lines" that "bend away from each other" each time an officer injures a civilian or a policeman is killed. Comey says "this is a very difficult time in law enforcement." He says officers must get people to see them "more clearly" and "have to work hard" to see better the people they protect.
