Disturbing thing about protests is anarchists in the crowd

[On BLM protests]: "The only thing that disturbs me about the protests right now is you have anarchists involved in these crowds. It doesn't take many people to cause chaos and those are the people we have to be tough with, and then show respect to the protesters. But the anarchists don't give a damn. Their goal is to destroy society, and it doesn't take many to do that."

We're always going to have some imperfect police officers

[On George Floyd killing]: "We're an imperfect nation, just like we're imperfect human beings. We're always going to have some imperfect police officers. We had them when I was mayor. We had them when I was governor, and we're going to have them for future governors and future presidents. But we want to reduce that risk. But we have to understand the reality is each of us have these fallacies--physical, mental, biases ... You work on the imperfections, but you'll never resolve them."

Celebrate police who come back stronger after getting shot

Two years ago, just before arriving to deliver the State of the State address, I received a phone call informing me that Highway Patrol Trooper Michael Potts was fighting for his life. You see, during a routine traffic stop on Highway 70, Trooper Potts was shot four times. He was shot in his hands, shoulder and directly in his face. He was left for dead by the assailant. I traveled to Duke University Medical Center to visit Trooper Potts. Since the shooting, there have been surgeries, grueling rehabilitative therapy and personal reassessment.

Some advised Trooper Potts to turn in his badge and to pursue a safer line of work. But Trooper Potts did not walk away. Instead, he overcame his obstacles and today, he is assigned to the North Carolina Highway Patrol Training Academy.

Like Trooper Potts, I'm proud to report the State of North Carolina has come back even stronger. Its people are resilient, and our future is bright.
