Post-Boston, Appreciating The NYPD And Its Commissioner

My father, of blessed memory, would have loved New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.  Commissioner Kelly is sensitive to the need to preserve and protect civil liberties, but he also recognizes that a society must first and foremost ensure the safety of its citizens.  My dad used to say that political correctness takes open mindedness to the extreme -- where people’s brains fall out and they stop thinking rationally.  He was also devoted to the safety of his family, which he taught me; being alert, observant and lucky.

The authors of this article, Alan S. Jaffe, Michael S. Miller and David M. Pollock, claim that Commissioner Kelly has made New York a safe place to live. We ask — safe for whom? Certainly not the Muslim community.

Matthew Goldstein, chancellor of City University of New York, recalled a commencement where he introduced the speaker and told him, “Marvin, be brief because no one will remember what you say.”

Marvin got up and addressed the audience:  “When you leave here remember one thing: make money.”  He sat down and got a standing ovation.
