BROOKLYN - City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) says he wants to meet with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly to discuss why he and another city official were arrested during the West Indian Day Parade.
Williams says he and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio's director of community affairs, Kirsten John Foy, were handcuffed and detained by police for no reason.
Yesterday, the mayor suggested the two could have a beer with police and talk about the incident.
However, in a joint statement, Williams and John Foy said the issue at hand is more serious than that. Instead, they would like to have a meeting with Bloomberg and Kelly, where local minorities could talk openly about their interactions with police.
