Giuliani: ‘I saved black lives’
Rudy Giuliani doubled down Monday on provocative racial comments he made about police shootings, boasting that he “saved more black lives than anyone” by dramatically cutting the murder rate when he ran the city.
“I saved more black lives than anyone as mayor. Many black kids are alive with the policies I put in place with [first] Police Commissioner [Bill] Bratton,” the former mayor told The Post.
“And they call me racist? I saved black lives.”
Giuliani said the reduction in crime continued under his successor, Mike Bloomberg, and Bloomberg’s police commissioner, Ray Kelly.
Giuliani stirred the pot on police-community relations when he addressed the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., during an appearance Sunday on “Meet the Press” with Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson.
