ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence held a moment of silence for two Iowa police officers killed in an ambush-style shooting on Wednesday. Speaking to supporters at a rally in Mesa, Arizona, Pence praised law enforcement officers as "the best of us". He also criticized Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her past comments in the wake of numerous police shootings of unarmed black men that have sparked debate about racial bias. "You hear people talking about law enforcement as a source of division in our communities. Hillary Clinton talks about 'institutional bias' in the wake of a tragedy," said Pence, "but Donald trump and I know that the men and women who serve in law enforcement are not a force for division in our communities they are a force for good." The suspect in the Iowa shooting, Scott Michael Greene, has been taken into custody. Police said it was unclear what provoked the attacks.
