New York Police Department commissioner Ray Kelly's comment about leaders in high-crime neighborhoods being more interested in denouncing police than denouncing crime prompted a strong critical creaction from a number of elected officials.
I contacted her office to get her reaction to Kelly's remarks. Through a spokesperson, Quinn sent me the following statement:
"I know there is great concern in all communities about crime and violence. Council Members care, Ray Kelly cares, I care and the people who live in the hardest hit neighborhoods care. All of us are united in horror at the recent examples of gun violence and senseless killings."
