U.S. Federal Courts to NYC: Go To Hell
New York, Friday, August 13, 2013 – City Council candidate, Joseph Concannon, District #23, slammed the ruling of U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin that the stop, question and frisk policy of the New York Police Department violated the constitutional rights of minorities in the city. To fix this, she intends to designate an outside lawyer to monitor the NYPD’s compliance with the Constitution.
NYC PBA President Pat Lynch Endorses Joe Concannon
Last Thursday, Concannon, a retired police captain, declared his candidacy on the steps of City Hall with the endorsement of PBA President Pat Lynch and all New York State law enforcement unions based upon his stance against the City Council’s anti-police legislation, the Community Safety Act. Today, he declared that this federal judge just told New York City to go to hell. The judge’s reckless decision should be a call to arms for all New Yorkers who refuse to go back to the bad old days of rampant crime and chaos when people were afraid to go out at night and parents were putting their children to sleep in bathtubs.
Retired Police Captain Joseph Concannon made the announcement Thursday of his City Council candidacy on the steps of City Hall surrounded by the presidents of the PBA, Detectives Endowment Association, Lieutenants’ Benevolent Association, Sergeants Benevolent Association, Captains Endowment Association and a dozen other police officer unions.
Concannon’s City Council race was an unexpected turn of events brought about by the political firestorm over the City Council’s anti-stop, question and frisk legislation dubbed the “Criminal Protection Act” championed by Councilman Mark Weprin (D-Oakland Gardens). Weprin voted in favor of two bills, Intros 1079 and 1080 which would handcuff and blindfold the police by allowing individuals to sue police officers, and establishing an inspector general to oversee the NYPD.
