NYPD Commissioner's Son Being Investigated for Allegedly Raping Woman

I am usually on the side of the accused in these cases,in the sense that generally its pretty difficult to prove what really went on behind closed doors in a he said she said situation.

But this is the damn police commissioner's son. Let's take a look at this very closely. There was plenty of CIA propaganda about Saddam Hussein's sons raping women of their choosing. The sons of those in power can often get away with a lot.

Here are the details from NyPo:
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly’s newsman son, Greg, is being investigated for allegedly raping a woman, law-enforcement sources told The Post early today.

The woman filed an official complaint Tuesday against the younger Kelly, claiming the co-host of Fox 5’s “Good Day New York” attacked her last October, the sources said.

The allegation is being investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office because of the inherent conflict of interest in an NYPD probe, according to the sources.

Greg Kelly’s lawyer, Andrew Lankler, said his client “strenuously denied” the allegation.

“Mr. Kelly is aware that the New York County District Attorney’s Office is conducting an investigation,” Lankler told The Post.
“Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing of any kind, and is cooperating fully with the district attorney’s investigation. We know the district attorney’s investigation will prove Mr. Kelly’s innocence.”

A police spokesman referred all questions to the Manhattan DA. A spokeswoman for DA Cyrus Vance Jr. declined comment.
Rosanna Scotto, Kelly's "Good Day New York" co-host, said "I love Greg, that's all I can say."

Kelly was absent from this morning's program.

The woman, in her late 20s or early 30s, went to the 13th Precinct station house with her sister sometime after 8 p.m. Tuesday to file the complaint, sources said.

She told police she met Greg Kelly, 43, on a street Oct. 8 and they went for drinks at the South Street Seaport, the sources said.

Then, she claimed, they went to the lower Manhattan law firm where she works — it was not clear if she’s a lawyer— and the alleged assault took place there.

Greg Kelly and the woman continued to communicate after the alleged incident, according to the sources.

She told police her boyfriend got furious when she related her story to him, and he approached the police commissioner at a public event.

It wasn’t immediately clear when that was.

The boyfriend told Ray Kelly that Greg had sexually assaulted the woman and that the alleged attack had “ruined my girlfriend’s life,” according to The Post’s sources.

The commissioner, hoping to prevent a scene at a public event, told the man to write him a letter, the sources said.
It wasn’t immediately clear if that letter was ever written.

It’s also not clear why the accuser waited three months to make an official report.

A close friend of the alleged victim told ABC News that the woman has been “an emotional cripple” since the incident.
The friend added that the boyfriend picked the accuser up at her office after the alleged attack and, “she was distraught.”
There's a lesson here for all women. Women shouldn't be alone with men, where these kinds of situations can develop. Every father should ingrain that into to the head of every daughter. Even John Gotti made that point clear to his daughter, and you would have to be nuts to mess with the daughter of John Gotti.


  1. Just as important is that no man should be alone with women because it can spawn all sorts of false allegations.

    This story stinks. She continued to have contact, and she waited 3 months to report it.

    With nothing but her word, there is no way I could convict on this if I was on a jury.

    Regret does not equal rape. I would be looking in to this woman's background to see what axes she has ground before. Of course I'd be looking in to his too for other patterns of abuse.

    Those in power and their children do frequently abuse their power and connections but their power and connections also make them bigger targets.

  2. Can you extrapolate on link to the John Gotti statement you were referring to??

    Indeed. The number of false rape and sexual molestation charges have almost reached epidemic levels. Unfortunately, this type of misandric and opportunistic behavior is actually encouraged given the incentives in the system. Worse, this type of injustice, brought about by political feminism (a statist ideology), is rarely mentioned by the libertarian community.

  4. That Kelly and the accuser continued to communicate after the alleged rape is telling. This reminds me of the accusations against Julian Assange.

    BTW, if someone is going to be publicly accused of rape and have his name splashed across headlines in this way, long before any investigation or trial has determined anything conclusively, it hardly seems fair that the accuser remains anonymous, shielded from scrutiny.
