17. Exactly! I still can not stand the sight of Giuliani to this day because
of how he shamelessly defended the NYPD during those police shootings. People look at Giuliani like he's Christ himself after 911. 911 or not, I'll never forget how that asshole denigrated Louima and Diallo. NEVER.

(snip)

Kerik, who never rose above the lowest rank of detective, was picked over senior NYPD chiefs with decades of experience. His chief asset was his unwavering subservience to Giuliani. With his former chauffeur in the top position, Giuliani was assured that his word would be law within the police department.

While Kerik made a show of reaching out to minority communities, he did little to stem the hostility toward both Giuliani and his own zero-tolerance policing methods. After lawyers for the cops who killed Diallo succeeded in moving the case to Albany and securing an acquittal, Kerik added insult to injury by clearing them of any internal disciplinary charges. The action amounted to an endorsement of an operation in which officers fired 41 bullets at an unarmed man whom they had not even identified.

The two (Giulani and Kerik) are definitely cut from the same cloth, aren't they? Kerik's promotions look like some kind of repayment for being a good lapdog -- either that or he's got some really incriminating information on Giuliani.
