Police interaction advice from this police chaplain

Advice Part 1: Don’t try to do the Jedi Knight Mind Trick. It won’t work. Really. Truly. Advice Part 2: To the radical left-wing “progressive” mayors and governors former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernard Bailey Kerik says:

“Tell your thugs in your community…

  • Don’t attack our police
  • Don’t assault our police
  • Don’t resist arrest
  • Don’t obstruct or interfere with an arrest
  • Don’t run from the police
  • Don’t run cops over with your car
  • Don’t take their Tasers
  • Don’t take their weapons
  • Don’t take their guns

… because if you do we’re gonna use force and we’re not gonna lose if we use force.”

Is that a statue of Saint Michael? Yes. Saint Michael is the patron saint of Law Enforcement.


As a police chaplain, I would add a couple of things:

1. Such advice above about not resisting arrest (resisting itself is a crime) is for all:

  • for the guilty and for those who are provably innocent.
  • for black and white and brown and yellow… whatever.

2. Just comply. Then, if you think you’re innocent, bring it before a judge.

I realize that this is controversial and emotions are what they are. But what the Commissioner said is true in all cases: If you do bad stuff in resisting, police are going to use force and the police are not going to lose if they use force. The one police officer you’re resisting will be backed up soon by untold numbers of other officers. And now they are not interested in the original incident, say, a possible wrongful traffic stop. No, no. Now they will be interested because of an assault or murder of a police officer. Just comply, then bring it before a judge.

    yes, the easiest and cheapest solution to most of these violent escalations. Maybe the schools should teach respect for the laws and people who enforce the law, rather than birth control.

      I agree Anne, schools should teach and model respect for lawful authority (God, parents, law enforcement etc) and stop encouraging vices (a narcissistic sense of self and one’s rights, including the “right” to abortion etc). Moreover, governments need to stop approving and financing those “rights” that are not rights at all, for how does one respect and trust a government when it is complicit in evil.

    Be polite, mind your manners, don’t volunteer more than your name and address without YOUR lawyer present. Don’t try to be helpful, don’t try to “clear this matter up” Speak only with your lawyer present.
