New York - Ex-Police Commish Unloads On De Blasio In New Memoir; Says Mayor's Policies 'Endager" New Yorkers' Lives
New York, NY - In his new memoir covering his years as head of law enforcement in New York City, former Police Commissioner Ray Kelly unloads on Bill de Blasio, charging that the mayor ‘ran against the police’ and that his new policies ‘endanger’ the lives of New Yorkers.
NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1Er0fvj) reports that in his new book, “Vigilance: My Life Serving America and Protecting Its Empire City,” Kelly is unyielding in his criticism towards de Blasio, especially his halt to the “stop and frisk” policy, which Kelly calls an “amazing surrender.”
“De Blasio shrugged and walked away from a routine and useful policing tool, snatching law enforcement defeat from the jaws of legal victory,” Kelly writes.
Kelly also offers up harsh criticism towards Manhattan federal Judge Shira Scheindlin, whose ruling of ‘stop and frisk’ as unconstitutional paved the way for de Blasio’s missteps.
Kelly calls Scheindlin’s ruling “disturbing, highly offensive,” and one which included “bad science, bad judgement, bad policy, and on a human level personally wrong.”
