Ray Kelly and the Mafia Cops. NYPD and LAPD and most of the metropolitan police departments in the USA became the new Mafia.
Capo Tony Bologna aka Captain Anthony Bologna is drawing $250,000 annually. He is rumored to draw $500,000 from his Mafia associates. He still suffers from the abuse at the hands of his tormentors in the elementary school. The reason: His lo vely name Tony Bologna. He was the commanding officer of the detectives Stephen Caracappa and Louis Eppolito, the convicted felons and murderers, who killed at the Mafia direction.
This is your NYPD Police Captains are making $250,000 a year, plus unlimited perks. Many rank and file cops retire with a six figure pensions while in their early forties. They saddle the City with enormous cost of benefits exceeding $3 billion annually.
Captain Anthony Bologna is the commanding officer at the First Precinct. Pepper spray is his favorite culinary ingredient. Mafia infiltrates NYPD at a staggering cost of $3 Billion annually. Police claims all desirable parking spots in the city for itself. Even though marihuana was decriminalized 7 years ago in NYC, marihuana possession is still the largest cause of all arrests in the City.
NYPD officers salary reach stratosphere. Many captains take home $250,000 or more, not counting perks. The perks can be as high as $150,000 a year. Police Commissioner’s Ray Kelly total benefit package exceeded $1 million in 2010. On top of that he gets an almost free luxury apartment at Gateway Plaza controlled by the Lefrak family. Free health club. And he gets chauffeured around by 2 detectives and 3 officers in black SUV’s.
Ray Kelly is smirking at you
NYPD Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly “Shorty”
Kelly built the largest police force ever – to the city’s detriment.
NYPD establishment made sure that Shorty, who is relatively clean, does all the dirty work in getting NYPD all the perks.
made sure that NYPD officers are set for life financially.
Under Ray Kelly’s leadership NYPD became the largest beneficiary of the 911 fund.
Under Kelly’s leadership NYPD became the largest beneficiary of the NYC revenues in perpetuity. If this issue is not addressed drastically NYPD may ruin the City financially in the near future.
For the last 20 years Ray Kelly lived in Battery Park City at Gateway Apartments / 300 South End Avenue, zip code 10280. According to his landlord (Lefrak Organization- 212-972-1100) Kelly pays $1,750 a month for a 2 BR apartment facing Hudson River. Similar apartments in this building currently rent from $4,500 to $6,900
Ray Kelly is the re-incarnation of the most evil person in the U.S. history: J. Edgar Hoover. Hover was a flaming, and yet, closeted gay. In his role as kingmaker and the FBI boss he harassed thousands of gays and liberals. Hoovers critics have accused him of exceeding the jurisdiction of the FBI. He used the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders, and to collect evidence using illegal methods.
As long as Ray Kelly is tormented by his demons NYC will be in deep trouble. Ray Kelly needs to seek psychiatric help. Alternatively, he should resign.
Ray Kelly never stops smirking. Life is good.
Ray is contemplating to run for Mike Bloomberg’s job. If he gets the job, the City will be run by his Mafia Cops friends. Forget about New Orleans. NYC will become the Mafia Capital of the World.
Ph.D. from Harvard in Bullshit Studies. One Harvard Professor on the GSR committee said about Kelly: He can’t find his way out of a paper bag.
Police and the Filthy Rich are on the same page
The long-serving NYPD commissioner is autocratic, dismissive of civil-liberties concerns—and effective. Is that a reasonable trade-off to keep the city safe?
Kelly’s management creed is to control everything he can control. After 9/11, Kelly’s posture was that security was something an NYPD commissioner couldn’t delegate to others. Inside the massive Police Department, he’s fashioned a counterterrorism force staffed by former CIA officers, FBI agents, and Ivy Leaguers that has, essentially, its own foreign policy as well as informants throughout the city. He’s developed a whole new suite of tactics not only to make the city safer but also—almost as important—to make it feel safer. And part of the strategy is keeping himself in the frame: He is the department, and the department is him. “As a result of his success and longevity, Ray Kelly has become to the NYPD what J. Edgar Hoover was to the FBI,” says Michael Palladino, head of the detectives union.
Though the Feds sometimes complain about Kelly’s detectives’ stepping into their long-term cases and his poaching of headlines, they’ve acknowledged him as a partner in counterterrorism work. On the domestic front, he’s proved to be an administrative magician. With dwindling resources and thousands fewer cops on the streets, the number of reported crimes has continued to dwindle. Despite this year’s dramatic rise in shootings (one of the highest numbers since Bloomberg took office) and uptick in murders (the only crime stat that’s hard to fudge), the homicide rate in New York is still near its lowest in history, give or take a few dozen DOAs. Criminologists say many factors contribute to this, but Kelly has been happy to give the NYPD the credit.
These days, despite the occasional scandal, like last week’s suspension of a lab technician who is alleged to have falsified reports, Kelly’s biggest problem can be his own success and the burden of high expectations. No one expected the crime numbers to continue going down throughout his tenure, yet until the past six months they did. The commissioner is famously sensitive to criticism—“I’ve been there, and let me tell you, it is not a pleasant place to be,” says Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. about the calls he gets from One Police Plaza—so the recent spikes in crime are unsettling for Kelly. What else can he do to drive the numbers down further?
If he were a politician, a role he’s sometimes flirted with, Kelly would be the most popular one in the city. Earlier this year, he received a 70 percent approval rating, matching his highest ever (and nine points higher than Bloomberg’s). Mitchell Moss, an NYU public-policy professor, has said the commissioner “radiates power.” Thomas Reppetto, the author of NYPD: A City and Its Police, calls Kelly “the greatest police commissioner in the history of the city. He invented the playbook on terrorism from scratch.”
Not everyone buys into this heroic picture. Donna Lieberman, head of the New York Civil Liberties Union, calls Kelly a “master of PR” and his policies “hyperaggressive.” Under Kelly, the NYPD “has taken on the aura of an occupying force.”
Conga lines of patrol cars flash sirens and barrel down streets, the kind of maximum-visibility, flood-the-zone feint that’s a signature of Kelly’s department. Cops sit high above the street in watchtowers. And more New Yorkers are getting stopped, questioned, frisked, and put into a database. People like Lieberman are mind-boggled that city leaders would allow a commissioner like Kelly to collect information on hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who are mostly minorities and nearly 90 percent of whom have done nothing wrong.
Kelly won’t apologize for his tactics. With his military bearing and unforgiving attitude, he’s an odd fit for such a progressive city. But his resilient popularity is a testament to the times he lives in and the dynamics of modern fear. “Even liberals don’t like to be blown up,” says Hank Sheinkopf, who advised Bloomberg in 2009. “Kelly is the guy who seems to know how to protect people from getting blown up. The issue is not whether he knows or doesn’t know. It’s the perception he knows. He has made it believable that he is all that is standing between the citizens of New York and destruction.”
“Hey Joe,” Kelly says, “I want an iced cappuccino, okay? Decaf.”
The bunker pulls over. He looks out a tinted window at the Dunkin’ Donuts. “Chris, what is Dunkin’s Dark Roast?”
“It’s the Colombia version, yeah. High octane.”
“I haven’t seen that one. No brain surgery after that one.”
“Bold flavor,” Kelly says.
On the street, faces look in the windows of the bunker, wondering who might be inside.
“It’s amazing how many Dunkin’ Donuts there are in the city now, it just shocks me,” Kelly says. “You almost see more Dunkin’ Donuts than Starbucks. I don’t know what the numbers are, but you used to see Starbucks everywhere. Now it’s Dunkin’ Donuts.”
The detective is back in the bunker. He hands Kelly his iced cappuccino and his change.
“I should wear shirts with pockets,” Kelly says. “These kind of European cuts, they have no pockets ⋯ I like pockets.”
“Boss, I just wanted to give you this bank robbery out in the 7-5 Precinct,” the detective says. “We have a male Hispanic in his thirties. Apparently he walked in with a note, stated he had a firearm, didn’t display the firearm, fled on foot with an undetermined amount of money. No dye packs were given.”
Kelly sips his iced cappuccino from the straw.
“All righty, can we move?” Kelly asks. “If it’s okay with you guys?”
“Yes, sir,” the detective says.
“Yes, sir,” the driver says.
Kelly was never a doughnut-dunking kind of cop. When he first joined the department, in 1963, Kelly had a degree from Manhattan College. With a diploma, he felt ostracized.
“They had no kids like this around the department,” Kelly told me earlier. “So, some strange looks.”
Kelly’s father sold milk and worked in the shipyards before landing a desk job at the IRS. His mother checked clothes in the dressing room at Macy’s. The youngest of four boys, Kelly was an aggressive child. He was not in a gang per se. He was in “a crew,” he says. I ask him what that entailed.
“Fights,” he says. “Hitting people with a stickball bat, getting yanked. A classic West Side Story case: Irish and Italian gangs versus the Puerto Rican gangs.”
Helping his mother out at Macy’s, Kelly read about the NYPD cadet program, which he thought could finance his law-school tuition.
“Kelly has made it believable that he is all that is standing between the citizens of New York and destruction.”
“It wasn’t like I was ‘Hey, I always wanted to be a cop,’ ” Kelly says.
One concern was his height. In the early sixties, the NYPD had a height requirement of five eight. He looks to be right on the edge. Before his medical exam, one source who worked with Kelly for years claims, the police commissioner spent several nights sleeping on a plywood board to straighten his back and increase his height. He was then driven to the exam in a station wagon, lying flat in the back.
“A mythological thing,” Kelly says. “I think it’s kind of an old wives’ tale. It didn’t happen to me, but it may have happened [to other cops].”
Early on, Kelly put the NYPD on hold, enrolled in the Marines, and shipped out to Vietnam. His older brothers were Marines, and Kelly was pining for a way to prove himself. If he hadn’t married his high-school sweetheart, Veronica, and had his sons, Jim, a computer analyst, and Greg, now a news anchor who hosts his father on Fox 5, Kelly would have considered a career in the military. In the reserves, he rose to the rank of colonel.
“I liked the military life,” Kelly says. “They teach you self-sufficiency early on. I always say that I learned most of what I know about leadership in the Marine Corps. Certain basic principles stay with you—sometimes consciously, mostly unconsciously.”
One principle is that authority should look like authority. Hence Kelly’s meticulous attention to his clothes. His shirts are custom-made and laundered at Geneva, a shirtmaker. His tailor is Martin Greenfield, a Holocaust survivor who fits many big-name but not-so-big-bank-account pols for Savile Row–looking suits at Williamsburg prices.
“He does nice work,” Kelly says of Greenfield.
“He comes in for the smallest thing,” Greenfield says of Kelly. “He’s like all my clients, he likes to look good, and he likes when people tell him, ‘You look great.’ ”
After Kelly returned from Vietnam, he scored at the top of his class in the Police Academy. He patrolled the Upper West Side for only seven months before getting promoted. Some retired cops say Kelly’s swift ascent makes him a boss who doesn’t understand the street. “He’s not a cop,” says one retired chief, dismissively. “He’s on patrol for a blink of an eye and tells guys on patrol ten years how to do their jobs.” Says another, “He gives you all the ingredients to make shrimp scampi and says he wants sirloin steak.”
It was the combination of talent and ambition that sped Kelly’s rise in the force. He taught himself mnemonics, and now has a tremendous recall of information. “He could put an elephant to shame,” says one former underling. “It’s all in the suitcase upstairs.” Over the years, he would command precincts in Brooklyn and Queens, obtain a master’s degree from Harvard, and run the department’s Office of Management Analysis and Planning, which handled statistics in the pre-CompStat years. Then a two-star chief, Kelly was such a competent, intelligent force at headquarters that he was promoted over several superiors to the department’s No. 2 post: first deputy.
Proposals to the New York City Legislature
Legislature should consider undoing most of the deals and contracts made under Ray Kelly’s leadership. Legislature should demand that no residents of Long Island or NJ are employed by NYPD. Legislature must demand that no person with Mafia ties be employed by NYPD.
All LI and NJ residents must either resign or be fired with no benefits.
An independent civilian-controlled department should be created to control and monitor residency requirements and Mafia ties.
Cops caught violating residency requirements or Mafia ties rules will be required to refund the City for all the renumeration they got. If they can’t reimburse the City, the City should take possession of their houses, cars, bank accounts, stocks and bonds, IRA and KEOGH accounts. Cars, houses, bank accounts, stocks and bonds, IRA and KEOGH owned by their spouses or children shouldn’t be immune to forfeiture.
Only the drastic measures can stop Mafia infiltration.
We should be reminded, that even those cops who were ‘clean’ in the past may turn ‘rogue’. A vigilant and continuous monitoring of each and every cop will be required.
Each prospective NYPD applicant must be required to sign an affidavit that he or she is not a member of the Aryan Race movement or party or any other Nazi or racist-related entity. The applicants with strong anti-liberal inclinations or hatred toward New Yorkers should be discouraged from joining the ranks of NYPD.
Each prospective NYPD applicant must be required to take an extensive psychological evaluation. The applicants with homicidal, or any other aggressive traits should be discouraged from applying to the NYPD ranks, their names entered into the national database of potential murderers.
Each cop will be required to take a lie detector test every six month.
An independent civilian commission must decide semi-annually whether every NYPD officer should be let go or stay in the ranks.
An independent commission must decide on the salary cap for each rank. There are literally thousands of cops drawing six figure salary year after year. The obscene $250,000 salaries of many captains should be thing of the past.
The Mafia Cops
Independent sources estimate that more than 7,000 NYPD officers are on the Mafia payroll.
Only a few high-profile Mafia cases came to prominence. Several years ago two NYPD detectives on Mafia payroll where charged and convicted for killing more than 22 people.
Hey boys, have fun at the City expense
The bagpipes are only for the ‘bravest’
Well, NYPD stands there alright

This article appeared in The Village Voice on March 30, 2011.
Our senior senator, to whom President Obama pays considerable heed, is vigorously campaigning for our police commissioner to become the FBI director when the incumbent, Robert Mueller, ends his 10-year term this September.
"The country needs him," Chuck Schumer explains. "Ray Kelly is a world-class choice, and he's at the head of the list whether it's fighting terrorism, drug crime, or street crime. ... He's the pre-eminent law enforcement person in the country" (Daily News, March 13).
Indeed, no one in American law enforcement exceeds our police commissioner in stopping and frisking blacks and Hispanics on the street.
Moreover, the rest of the country will be impressed, as Schumer insistently pursues his goal, that in ultra-sophisticated Manhattan, the often-quoted Quinnipiac University Polling Institute showed, according to a March 17 Wall Street Journal report, that the voters acclaim Kelly's job performance (67 percent to 20 percent). A Kelly enthusiast, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has himself long cultivated aspirations for residence in the White House, has, in all the boroughs but Manhattan, an approval rate of 39 percent, his lowest in eight years. In Manhattan — the pollsters didn't reach me — Bloomberg barely reached a majority of 55 percent.
But once Kelly makes it, I'm sure he'll often welcome Bloomberg's staying overnight in the Lincoln bedroom.
However, our iconic Ray Kelly says (Daily News, March 18) that he has "no plans" to leave his post. I understand his tactical maneuvering. Why — until he's actually nominated by Obama — should Kelly have to answer irreverent questions about his civil liberties record here from the NYCLU, the national ACLU, and the relatively small number of other active Bill of Rights guardians in our land?
Even the Tea Partiers — although some carry the Constitution in their pockets — have not aggressively focused on the Obama administration going beyond even Bush and Cheney in suspending our individual liberties, such as privacy, in that founding document.
If nominated, Ray Kelly will, I expect, be eased into the Oval Office.
This real possibility brought back for me the regime of J. Edgar Hoover, and in view of the record of the FBI under Bush-Cheney and Obama, I'm not surprised that FBI headquarters in Washington is still named after the ubiquitous Mr. Hoover.
Preparing to write my second book of memoirs, Speaking Freely (Knopf), I got through the Freedom of Information Act my considerable FBI file, including many pages during Hoover's reign when I was a frequent critic of him. A characteristic entry was my attendance at a meeting of "radicals" in North Africa. I've never been to Africa, north or south.
As for the current FBI, Ray Kelly — whose record as this city's police commissioner has shown an aversion to individual civil liberties, particularly to the Fourth Amendment — would cherish the present "Guidelines for Domestic FBI Operations," signed into law toward the end of the Bush administration and since then thoroughly endorsed by President Obama and his lapdog, Attorney General Eric Holder.
J. Edgar Hoover would have been delighted to learn that under these guidelines — which would have enraged James Madison and Thomas Jefferson — the FBI can conduct a "threat assessment" as it protects our national security, against any one of us.
Without a judicial warrant (judges can be pesky in these matters) and, dig this, without any specific suspicion of criminal activity, they can track whomever they choose.
Is this still America? While still head of the FBI, Director Mueller, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, solemnly assured Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin that before any FBI surveillance can begin, there has to be at least some suspicion of wrongdoing.
After his testimony ended, someone in his office must have whispered in his ear because he sent Durbin a note saying he had misspoken on that matter. He had also misspoken when he testified that race is never a factor when an FBI agent is conducting a "threat assessment."
As many black and Hispanic New Yorkers would tell President Obama — if he cared to ask before nominating Kelly to run the FBI — race is a starkly disproportionate factor in Commissioner Kelly's long record of stop-and-frisks on our streets.
Think the spirit of Hoover isn't still haunting the FBI? Last July, the ACLU charged that "the FBI is still refusing to make public the portion of the [Domestic FBI] Guide that deals with sending agents or informants into houses of worship and political gatherings" (Associated Press).
Do you think FBI Director Kelly would insist on revoking that part of the guidelines? Just as under Hoover, if you go to a public gathering or to pray, you could be tracked into a database just because of your presence. The ACLU and some of its affiliates have ample evidence that this is already happening.
In fact, even George Orwell would be stunned to learn how extensive a surveillance society this country has become — and there's much more contempt coming for what's left of our personal privacy.
On December 10, the Washington Post's Dana Priest, together with William Arkin, revealed in "Monitoring America" that: "The United States is assembling a vast domestic intelligence apparatus to collect information about Americans — using the FBI, local police, state homeland security offices, and military criminal investigators... . The system, by far the largest and most sophisticated in the nation's history, collects, stores, and analyzes information about thousands of U.S. citizens, many of whom have not been accused of any wrongdoing.
"The government's goal is to have every state and local law enforcement agency in the country feed information to buttress the work of the FBI, which is in charge of terrorism investigations in the United States" (emphasis added).
Would you trust your fading privacy to an FBI headed by Ray Kelly as the "Monitoring America" operation expands?
And what if Chuck Schumer, influential as he is, fails to get Ray Kelly nominated to the FBI director?
Would the next nominee by Barack Obama — or by a Republican president elected in 2012 — be asked by enough of the media in all its forms, the Congress, or the citizenry, whether he or she has any objections to enforcing the FBI Domestic Guidelines or cooperating with "Monitoring America?"
How many of the New Generation — having been passively conditioned to what they know, partially, of their being surveilled — care about their vanishing privacy as, for example, they flock to be on Facebook? There, the FBI chooses its "persons of interest."
