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.”

This is obvious, we dont need a book to tell us this but its good that he put it out there. I told all you bloomberg haters you'll get what you deserve and you did! I also predicted that the city will go down with a liberal democrat at the helm and of course it did. The only way to run this city is will a liberal republican, tough on crime, fiscally responsible, but somewhat socially liberal. Hes out next elections and if Trump doesnt become president he shluld deff be the next mayor of NYC! Vahmayvin Yavin

It's just a way for the former commissioner to get even with the mayor for terminating his city police security detail that was afforded to him whilst being commissioner and in most cases it does continue. But I think it stopped almost right when Bill de Blasio became mayor... also as payback to Raymond Kelley for during the transition period he didn't allow the incoming mayor's staff hold any transition meetings at 1 Police Plaza. In fact disallowed them from even coming to Police Plaza. So it's all kids stuff!

The cit is going to the dogs. Don't worry about the women in Times Square covered in paint. Worry about the panhandlers harassing honest people.
