Outgoing New York Police Commissioner Has Some Biting Words for FBI

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, known for his stop-and-frisk tactics and zealous pursuit of Islamic terrorists, was quick to criticize the FBI.

In a wide-ranging interview with the New York Times, Kelly accused the FBI of failing to cooperate with local police.

He cited Boston as an example following the bombings last year.

“We want information right away,” he says. “I think in retrospect the mayor in Boston and the police commissioner in Boston feel the same way based on what they knew or didn’t know relative to the Boston Marathon bombing.”

During Kelly’s tenure, he pursued doggedly Muslims and built a counterterrorism apparatus, the Times wrote.

Ray Kelly, Fierce Supporter of New York’s Stop-And-Frisk Policy, Still Mum on Homeland Security Post

Is New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly in line for the top Homeland Security post?

Kelly said he’s spent time in Washington D.C., but added Sunday, “I know it’s wise to keep my mouth shut at this time,” Kelly told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

But pressure is building against Kelly, whose controversial stop-and-frisk policy was struck down by a court as unconstitutional, The Hill reports.

Still, President Obama doesn’t seem to be bothered by Kelly’s fiery defense of stop-and-frisk.

“Mr. Kelly might be very happy where he is, but if he’s not, I’d want to know about it because obviously, he’d be very well-qualified for the job,” Obama said last month.
