“It’s gotten out of control because we have leadership around the country that won’t stand up and say it’s wrong. You have leadership around the country that is cowering to the democratic party and George Soros, and they’re being threatened, basically, by the Black Lives Matter organization which in my opinion, Black Lives Matter is no different than a revolutionary terrorist group like the Black Liberation Army in the 70s and early 80s…the Black Panthers, Weather Underground, etc.” -Bernie Kerik
“The Black Lives Matter group today is a carry on of what we saw in the 60s, 70s, early 80s.”
“Think of the cities across the countries that are run by democrats. The cities with the highest violent crime rate in the country are run by democrats.”
“We have yet to be able to determine if a domestic call is going to turn violent.”
“90% of the time, it’s not the community leaders that are a problem with the police. It’s the outsiders that create hysteria around the working policemen in the communities. The people in the communities want the police. The mayors and the governors are falling prey.”
“I feel sorry for the people on the receiving end. It’s going to destroy lives. It’s going to get people killed. It’s going to create unrest and there’s going to be enormous corruption.”
“Defunding isn’t going to impact the cops and make them leave. They want to leave because the mayor isn’t supporting them.”
“Keep in mind that every single thing you do is being recorded somewhere.”
“At the end of the day, they have the right to protect themselves and their property.”
