That Must Be A Relief

The City Council’s “Republican trio” released a letter today announcing their continued support of Police Commission Ray Kelly in the wake of the Sean Bell shooting, which occured, oh, almost a month ago. No word on their stance on the consolidation of Brooklyn into New York City in 1898.

The letter reads, in part:

Again, some will continue to publicly call for your ouster and criticize you and the department in harsh terms. Despite the voices lined up against you, the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers fully support you and the men and women of the department. You can count us among that number.

The key number, at least when it comes to Council Republicans, being three.
