Bernard Kerik: Police Can't Let People Act Like Savages

By    |   Tuesday, 25 Nov 2014 05:19 PM

Former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik criticized the lack of response by the Ferguson police to the riots following the grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for killing black teenager Michael Brown.

"People are afraid to do their job. This is driven by the media. It's driven by the community. It's driven by the critics," Kerik said while appearing on CNN Tuesday, Mediaite reports.

"A lot of these police officers and people that are out there . . . want to protect society, but they're being criticized constantly for doing the job they're doing," he explained.

While Kerik admitted that he "wasn't there," he said that based on what he saw "you cannot allow people to act like savages, you cannot allow people to act like animals."

He said that if he were a police commander on the ground there, he "would be going through videos from last night, and I'd go around and start sucking up all those people that were out there doing this destructive damage."

"You can't torch buildings. You can't shoot guns into the air. This is insane," he added.

"They wanted justice? Justice has been served."
