BLACK, WHITE & BLUE:

Rudy got it right: Cops save minority lives (Bob McManus, November 24, 2014, NY Post)

Giuliani was over on "Meet the Press" -- opening up on Michael Dyson, a Georgetown University professor and frequent critic of policing practices in Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere in America:

"Ninety-three percent of blacks are killed by other blacks," Rudy barked. "I would like to see the [same] attention paid to that, that you are paying to [Ferguson]."

"What about the poor black child who was killed by another black child?" Giuliani asked. "Why aren't you protesting that? White police officers wouldn't be there if you weren't killing each other."

Naturally, polite people everywhere fell into a swoon.

Well, too bad about them. Dr. Giuliani may not have much of a bedside manner, but he's a first-rate diagnostician when it comes to criminal justice and his anti-crime prescriptions for New York City saved thousands of innocent lives -- most of them black and Hispanic.

Those would be the folks who weren't murdered when crime took its precipitous tumble starting in the Giuliani years.
