“Everything is about reforming the police. How about reforming the community? How about teaching young black men and women, in these communities of color, things like don’t run from the police when you get stopped. Keep your hands on the steering wheel when you get stopped in a car stop.
“Don’t make furtive moments, don’t put your hands in your pockets, don’t poke the police in the eye when he stops you, don’t assault the police, don’t resist.
“These are simple, simple things that could be taught in driving school when you’re teaching kids how to get their license.” – Former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik, who was pardoned by Trump earlier this year after being sentenced in 2009 to four years in prison on eight felony charges.
On Saturday Kerik declared that the elderly man assaulted by Buffalo police got what he deserved simply for being there.
