Fraunces Tavern Bombing

This letter was sent to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. Dear Editor,

Today is the thirteenth anniversary of the bombing of the Fraunces Tavern in New York City by 15 FALN Puerto Rican murderers. Four died in that atrocity and more than 60 were injured by these sub-human terrorists. I am not sure if police were killed but I do know some were seriously injured by your dedication to them including a plaque at One Police Plaza.

I consider you a dedicated person and policeman and commissioner to your men and as dedicated to the protection of me and the public in this city. I respect you for that dedication. However today hearing your comments and speech and dedication to these wounded fine policeman who make up the front line troops that backup this thin blue line I was disappointed. You failed to mention to the press and the public, and maybe higher ups prevent you from informing the public and police that these 15FALN sub-human murderers were pardoned by two self-serving selfish politicians, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and their actions to me is a crime. The crime was the conspiracy of the two manipulators of truth to get Puerto Rican votes on the backs of the murdered and maimed police and the public. The purpose was to get votes for the Hillary run for senator and that is a matter of record by the analysts who analyzed the despicable move by these two politicians at the time. Now this conspirator of truth is running for President of the USA and that is frightening. Intentionally soft on terrorists, and that commissioner, is a crime by conspiracy. The silence by you today to make the public aware of this pardon of FALN murderers on the backs of the police you lauded today worries me. That is my disappointment.
