Black leaders more worried about “stop and frisk” than actual black on black murders.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly demanded Tuesday to know why the community leaders who rail against stop-and-frisk policies haven’t led demonstrations against the gun violence exploding this summer.
“There doesn’t seem to be any major community response,” Kelly said.
“Many of them will speak out about stop-and-frisk” but are “shockingly silent when it comes to the level of violence right in their own communities,” he said.
Seventy-seven people were shot in New York last week during the heat wave, including a 3-year-old winged by crossfire as he played under a sprinkler in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
“We have not had a demonstration about this 3-year-old child,” Kelly told reporters at an event in Harlem. “We’ve had demonstrations about virtually every other issue in this city, except the level of violence.”
