What Rudy Giuliani did as Mayor in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Patrick Dorismond was not lawful in the eyes of many.
Dorismond was a security guard and father of two children who was killed by an undercover NY Police Department officer.
Giuliani decided to release Dorismond’s Juvenile record and declared Dorismond was “no altar boy.”
But the move caused a firestorm of criticism at Giuliani because the juvenile record had been sealed, and you can’t make this stuff up, Dorismond had actually served in that capacity, as an “altar boy.”
When a Mayor comes down on the wrong side of an issue they should be criticized, but it has to cut both ways.
Take two recent issues, the mosque near Ground Zero, and the recent shoplifting arrest of Caroline Giuliani, the daughter of tough law and order former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
