    New York City's former top cop said Sunday that the Obama administration cut funding to fight terrorism in the city to retaliate against Sen. Chuck Schumer for opposing a nuclear deal with Iran. "There's a certain amount vindictiveness on the part of Washington aimed at Sen. Chuck Schumer," Ray Kelly, New York City's police commissioner under former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said in an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. "Apparently they remember very well that Sen. Schumer did not support their Iran deal," Kelly said, arguing the proposed cut "was aimed at getting a reaction from...
  • I don't support more guns in America: Ex-NYPD chief (Dumba** alert!)

    Former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said Monday he's against allowing civilians easier access to guns, even in the face of increased fear about a Paris-style terror attack in the United States. "I'm not totally in support of more guns," Kelly told CNBC's "Squawk Box," citing the accuracy rate in police-involved shootings within the NYPD as a reason to be wary of arming everyday Americans.

    Mayor de Blasio has endangered New Yorkers’ lives by abandoning stop-and-frisk — an “amazing surrender” rooted in politics, ex-Police Commissioner Ray Kelly charges in a new book. “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 in his memoir, “Vigilance: My Life Serving America and Protecting Its Empire City.” De Blasio swept away stop-and-frisk — a policy police brass instituted in 1990 to let cops search and detain anyone they suspected of committing a crime — as a sop to his core supporters as...

    New York City’s streets are safer, thanks to stop-and-frisk policing and Kelly’s leadership. By Rich Lowry President Barack Obama shouldn’t nominate Ray Kelly to be secretary of Homeland Security. He should invite him to consider the error of his ways. At least that’s the logic of the president’s remarks on the George Zimmerman case. The president has had kind words for Kelly, but the president’s supporters point out the contradiction: In his meditation on the Zimmerman verdict, Obama dwelt on the evils of stereotyping, and Commissioner Kelly stands accused of policing an entire city on the basis of just that.

    The New York Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against the New York Police Department over its surveillance of Muslim communities, accusing the police of trampling on religious freedoms and constitutional guarantees of equality. The surveillance by the NYPD's intelligence division has extended beyond New York City's five boroughs into neighboring New Jersey and other nearby states. The police department says that surveillance of Muslims is legal under an earlier federal court order. The lawsuit is the latest skirmish in an ongoing battle between the NYPD and civil liberties advocates over the department's aggressive policing tactics - including...

Speaking with reporters before the Columbus Day Parade, Kelly said not enough is known about the shooting of Army National Guardsmen Noel Polanco by an Emergency Service Unit detective and that a grand jury investigation will be...

    It was just a chance encounter on a downtown street — but she was instantly enamored. “I’ve seen you on TV. You’re so cute,” said the woman who would later accuse Greg Kelly of rape, according to a law-enforcement source. The brunette crossed paths with the handsome “Good Day New York” host two days before the alleged attack. “She stopped him,” the source said. “She told him she was star-struck.” DA TAKING HIS TIME ON CASE What followed was about 48 hours of marathon sexting ahead of their Saturday-night date at the South Street Seaport. “The texts were explicit,” said...

    The son of New York City's police commissioner, also a co-host of a popular New York City morning television show, has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman, a person familiar with the investigation said Thursday. Greg Kelly, 43, was absent Thursday morning from his job as anchor of "Good Day New York" and through a lawyer denied the allegations. The woman said she had drinks with him on Oct. 8, then went back to her office, where she was assaulted, the person familiar with the case told The Associated Press. She went to police Tuesday, according to the person,...

    Did the most powerful police commissioner in America have a secret meeting with leftist financier George Soros? Len Levitt, the police journalist and blogger behind NYPD Confidential, claims in a piece on HuffPo that Soros scored a clandestine conference with Kelly at One Police Plaza, the NYPD’s headquarters, just last week. According to Levitt, Soros was “escorted in by a retired NYPD cop, driving a wine-colored Mercedes, [and] the left-leaning billionaire was whisked in and out of police headquarters with no one being the wiser.” Levitt claims that a Soros official confirmed the meeting to him. But NYPD has remained...

    NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly had some strong words for “Occupy Wall Street” protesters Thursday, blaming participants for starting skirmishes which led to more than 20 arrests on Wednesday. “What they did is they counted. They actually had a countdown — 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 — they grouped together, they joined arms and they charged the police. They attacked the police. They wanted to get into Wall Street, they wanted to occupy Wall Street,” Kelly told reporters. Police arrested 28 people Wednesday — mostly for disorderly conduct. There was at least one arrest for assaulting a police officer and police...

    NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly noted last week that the investigation of the Times Square bombing attempt was in some ways similar to the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center. He was talking about the police work that nabbed Faisal Shahzad -- but the comment also highlighted the similarity of our government's response then and now. Then came Attorney General Eric Holder's weekend comments about seeking a broader "public safety" exception to the Miranda rule. That agenda shows that he's still too focused on gathering evidence for a court case, when the top priority in such instances should be gathering...
