Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax TV
on Friday that the authorities have a critical job right now in the Munich attacks that have killed at least 10 people — and that it was wrong at this early stage to speculate that the shootings were by the Islamic State.
"It's extremely important to take care of the victims, to get them out of there — and to find these shooters, if you will, and take them out before they do more damage," Kerik, who directed the city's forces during 9/11, told "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner.
"You have to wait for the facts," he added, responding to questions on whether the shootings were ISIS-inspired. "Don't make assertions, don't speculate.
"You've got to figure out what is really going on, because you send the wrong message to the public, to the community, to the victims' families.
"Don't speculate, don't assume," Kerik advised. "Do your job — and that's the best way to go."
