Anyone who lived in New York City during the Dinkins Administration knows how fast things can get very bad -- on a dime. The idea that the City Council would pass legislation that would allow the NYPD to be sued in state courts for "profiling" is a recipe for jihad terror rampant in the city. After the ending of the Stop and Frisk program, gun violence spiked in New York -- the very next day.
Joe Concannon gets it. He is saying all the right things. Also, he is appearing with Greg Buckley, Sr., the father of Lance Cpl Greg Buckley, Jr., who was murdered by a jihadi in a “Green on Blue” attack in Afghanistan on August 10, 2012. I spoke along with Buckley at the Queens Republican Club and at the Chabad synagogue in Great Neck, among other places, and was moved by the passion of his commitment to bring our government back to realism and truth regarding the enemy in Afghanistan. Concannon represents bringing that same realism and truth back to New York city government, where it is so sorely needed.
How the slickly named Community Safety Act was rammed through is illuminating. The title is Orwellian (as so many such things are) -- it should really be called the Criminal Protection Act. The City Council representatives overrode a mayoral veto by one vote to push this Act on New York. Mark Weprin, Concannon's opponent, was that one vote, and it has changed the entire way in which the NYPD operates. Previously, the criminals were on the defensive -- now they're running amok, knowing the cops can do little to stop them.
And the City Council did this without voter approval. Because New York City is such a key city, this law could and probably will become law all over the nation. That's why it's so important to fight back against this now. Joe Concannon deserves your full and active support. If you are anywhere in the area this Thursday, be at this event and like his page.

Veterans Appreciation Night: Honoring Those Who Serve
New York, Monday, September 7, 2013 - A veteran of the U.S. Air Force and retired Police Captain, Joe Concannon is a strong advocate for both public safety and Veterans issues. He is now running a dynamic grassroots campaign in Eastern Queens for City Council to represent our law enforcement, first responders and Veterans communities, and to speak on behalf of the men and women who defend our city, state and nation.
The Concannon campaign is hosting an event to honor our Veterans this Thursday evening October 10, at Rollin Greens in Bellerose, Queens. Greg Buckley, Sr. whose son, Lance Cpl Greg Buckley, Jr., was one of three Marines killed in a “Green on Blue” insider attack on his military base in Afghanistan on August 10, 2012, will be the special guest speaker. He will give a firsthand story of his son's murder at the hands of jihadists, and demand swift justice for the murderers through their prosecution on American soil as terrorists.
Concannon is running on the Reform Party line to reverse the damage the City Council has done to New York City by passing the Community Safety Act, better known as the “Criminal Protection Act.” This ill-advised legislation will remove the handcuffs from the criminals and place them on our police officers, just as our current federal administration’s policies of “cultural sensitivity” and rules of engagement in our overseas military operations allowed the savage murders of our unarmed soldiers on their own military base by armed jihadists. In the same manner, city legislators and liberal judges have ruled that on the streets of New York City, the criminals are now the victims and the police are the problem. The current administration ties the hands of our soldiers and protects the enemy, while the City Council handcuffs our police and protects the offenders. These misguided policies have emboldened the terrorists and will do the same for the criminals in our midst. Both Joe Concannon and Greg Buckley, Sr. are speaking out loudly against this.
Joe Concannon, who is running for City Council to ensure the safety and security of all New Yorkers will advocate for Veterans just as he will advocate for the law enforcement community. He has stated: “The most important role of any elected official is to ensure our nation's defense, and to implement ublic safety policies on the state and local government levels. Our Military Veterans deserve the best the government can provide, as well as full access to services. Too often we find Veterans are last in line, after they were first in line in defense of our nation. Honorable Veterans have been undermined just like our law enforcement community.” Joe Concannon has promised that “once in office, I will seek to review current programs in New York City and ensure that promised preferences are provided for our Veterans and that obstacles to services are removed. Veterans need to be treated as "First Class Citizens" and put at the front of the line.”
