Bill Bratton has been the Police Commissioner of Boston, Los Angeles, and New York. It suffices to say he knows a think or two about the ins and outs of being a cop in a major city, in major LIBERAL cities in particular.
But in today’s current culture, despite all of his success in the past, Bratton would want absolutely nothing to do with the current liberal regime dominating these areas.
Host of “Fox News Primetime” Brian Kilmeade asked Bratton, “If I gave you the keys to a major city now, even with your track record of success, could you be successful in this climate?”
Bratton responded by saying :“Well, first off, I wouldn’t take them. Because the ability to succeed in this climate is going to be extraordinarily difficult for any police chief, myself included. And these are very difficult and extraordinary times.”
He went on to add, “Well, where we are is not where we want to be, certainly. It brings me back to the 1970s, in terms of when I first began in policing. And in the 1970s, we were defunding the police. We were laying cops off by the thousands. We were also letting hundreds of thousands of people out of our mental institutions who became homeless, and we were decriminalizing, similar to what’s going on now… And all of that is basically happening right now, 50 years later.”
