Calling for the "cowards" who defaced a statue of ballplayers Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese in Coney Island last week to be arrested and punished to the fullest extent possible, former comtroller William Thompson on Monday called on the federal government to pay for more surveillance cameras and for schools to do more to teach against prejudice.

As mayor, William Thompson says he'll fight for more federal security funds. Adam Dickter
