Televangelist Pat Robertson shocked many of his fans on Thursday when he responded to the Minneapolis police shooting that happened last Sunday by saying “we don’t have the finest in the police department.”

While discussing police officer Kim Potter’s claim that she mistook her sidearm for a taser in the killing of Daunte Wright last weekend, Robertson demonstrated the difference between these two things before saying, “There’s just no comparison.”
“Now how she made the difference, when she shot that poor guy to death, saying this is what I thought was my taser. And if you can’t tell the difference in the feel of those things, it’s crazy,” he continued. “You know I am pro-police, folks. I think we need the police, we need their service, and they do a good job, but if they don’t stop this onslaught, they cannot do this.”

Robertson then addressed the viral video of the Virginia traffic stop of Army Lt. Caron Nazario.

“You know the police in Virginia picked up a lieutenant in the Army and began to give him trouble, and our state police are highly trained, but why they don’t stop this, and this thing that’s going on in Minnesota with the Derek Chauvin,” he said. “I mean, they ought to put him under the jail. He has caused so much trouble by kneeling on the death of George Floyd. I mean, on his neck, it’s just terrible what’s happening. And the police, why don’t they open their eyes to what the public relations are? They’ve got to stop this stuff.”
“Maybe they need more training. Consistent training,” co-host Terry Meeuwsen chimed in to say.

“I think the problem is they’ve got to pay them more. We don’t have the finest in the police department,” Robertson replied. “They’re low-paid people, Terry. They don’t get adequate —It’s not a question of training, it’s a question of hiring a more superior workforce, and we aren’t doing it. But we need police, we need them, and we need to honor them, and I’m all for it, but at the same time, we cannot have a bunch of clowns running around who are underpaid and who really are not the best and brightest. We’ve got to have the best in there.”
