Last night, Vice President Mike Pence officially accepted the nomination as President Donald Trump's running mate for a second term. A large portion of the Vice President's remarks focused on law and order. In the wake of violent unrest in cities like Kenosha, Wisconsin, Vice President Pence highlighted the Administration's support of law enforcement and its commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all Americans.
The Vice President's remarks served as a warning for what would happen if Joe Biden is elected President:
Pence warned America, “Our economic recovery is on the ballot, law and order is on the ballot. But so are things far more fundamental and foundational to our country.”
"President Trump set our nation on a path to freedom and opportunity from the very first day of this administration," Pence said. "But Joe Biden would set America on a path of socialism and decline. But we’re not going to let it happen."
Night 3 of the Convention illustrated how the Administration's commitment to law and order has yielded real results. Sam Vigil shared his story of how Operation Legend represents the first step in bringing the murderer of his wife to justice:

By launching Operation Legend, President Trump is helping deliver justice for Jackie and other innocent victims of violent crime. #RNC2020
Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that over 1,000 arrests have been made as a result of Operation Legend.
Michael McHale, President of the National Association of Police Organizations, also spoke last night. His organization recently endorsed President Trump because of the President's commitment to protecting law enforcement and enacting commonsense policing reforms.
