Bratton Returns to Helm of NYPD

December 05, 2013  | 

Former New York top cop William Bratton, who left One Police Plaza in 1996, is returning as the city's new police commissioner, the New York Daily News reports.

Bratton, 66, was named the new commissioner Thursday at the Red Hook Justice Community Center by incoming Mayor Bill de Blasio, who issued a news release trumpeting the hire.

"Bill Bratton is a proven crime-fighter," de Blasio said in advance of the announcement. "He knows what it takes to keep a city safe, and make communities full partners in the mission."

Good luck Bill. You're gonna need it. Last time around Rudy had your back, even if you 2 didn't always see eye to eye. If you think DeBlasio will back you if things go sideways…….

Superb choice. Bratton was "the poster boy of how to fight crime". Zillionaire Michael Bloomberg, financier of the national and world war on the 2nd Amendment, was preceded by Rudy Giuliani and is finally out of office due to term limits. Successor Bill de Blasio has brought back Rudy's PC Bill Bratton, also former LAPD Chief of Police. Google The City that Became Safe: "Giuliani and Bratton crisscrossed the city like frontier lawmen, upbraiding cop killers, dirty cops, drug dealers, terrorists, squeegee men and panhandlers."
