Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly spoke out the other day about how local politicians are not doing all they can concerning the violence in their local communities.

Kelly says they are not actively engaging community leaders to be proactive to stem the violence.

I say Kudos to Kelly for saying what had to be said.

The police in my view can’t do it alone. It takes a whole community to say enough is enough. A public outcry is needed to end the violence.

As for me, I have a voice and I intend to use it, quite unlike some of our political leaders who pretend they care and for the sake of political expediency find it easier to bash the NYPD rather than speak out against violence in our communities.

Our police and the community need to form a partnership and to attack the problem or else more men, women and children will surely die for no reason.
