Bernard Kerik : You Can’t Let People Act Like ‘Savages’ and ‘Animals’

Former Commissioner of the NYPD Bernard Kerik appeared on CNN to discuss the events in wake of the release of the grand jury’s decision in Ferguson, Missouri not to indict Officer Darren Wilson. Kerik defended the actions of the officers in Ferguson, saying, “You cannot allow people to act like savages, you cannot allow people to act like animals.”

“If I was the police commanders today, I 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,” Kerik opined. “This is insane. They wanted justice, justice has been served.”

Mr Kerik congratulated St Louis County Prosecutor on his handling of the case, saying: “I think the prosecutor did an excellent job on his explanation of the return of no bill of indictment,” he said. “I think he did an excellent job on getting the information out to the public.”

Kerik also added that he wished the decision had been made this morning, instead of last night. “There aren’t any protesters out there today, the streets are calm,” he noted. “And they seem to light up like the goblins at nighttime.”
