Will Danielle Outlaw Be NYC's New P.C.?

By Ralph Cipriano

Is Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw interested in becoming New York City's top cop?

According to Sunday's New York Daily News, Eric Adams, the Democratic candidate for mayor in overwhelmingly Democratic New York, has promised that after he's elected on Nov. 2nd, he's going to hire a woman as police commissioner.

According to the Daily News, Adams "is casting a wide net" and might consider shaking up the NYPD with the appointment of an outsider.

The Daily News cited three women "who are believed to be the non NYPD candidates under consideration." They include former Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and Philadelphia's own Danielle Outlaw. 

But according to a spokesperson for Outlaw, it's all media gossip, and Outlaw isn't going anywhere.

"Commissioner Outlaw has not been approached about a position with the NYPD," wrote Officer Tanya Little of the Philadelphia Police Department's Office of Media Relations/Public Affairs.

According to Officer Little, Outlaw's "focus remains on leading the Philadelphia Police Department while making Philadelphia a safer city in which to live, work, and play."

Well, that's not going well.

On Monday, WHYY reported that Central High School and Philadelphia High School for Girls were on lockdowns after at least six people were shot in the Fern Rock neighborhood. The victims included five black men and one black woman between the ages of 19 and 28. All were reported in stable condition except for a 26-year-old man who died after he was shot several times in the chest. 

"It's a busy area. Thank God the children were not out when the shooting occurred,” Deputy Police Commissioner Joe Dales told 6ABC. Monday's shootings were not far from the Olney Transportation Center, where eight people were the victims of a mass shooting last February.

Meanwhile, CBSPhilly reported that a 23-year-old man died in the city's Strawberry Mansion section Monday after he was shot multiple times in the chin, leg and back. And 6ABC reported that two more victims were shot to death Tuesday morning. They include a 57-year-old woman who was fatally wounded as she stood in the doorway of her home on the 1800 block of East Clementine Street in Kensington, and a 37-year-old man who was shot multiple times on the 2200 block of Chadwick Street in North Philadelphia. 

As of yesterday, Philadelphia's official body count stood at 391 murders, a 17% increase over last year, when 499 people were murdered, one short of the record of 500 murders set in 1990. At the current rate, the city will set a new record this year with 583 murders. 

According to the New York Daily News, the main problem for a new police commissioner to deal with in New York City is "guns, guns, guns," said Richard Aborn president of the Citizens Crime Commission. If we don’t get a handle on the gun violence then the city is really in trouble," Aborn told the Daily News.

Hey Rich, don't expect any solutions to the gun violence problem from Danielle Outlaw. In Philly, so far, she's been clueless.

Actually, New York City should only consider hiring Outlaw if they're interested in boosting their crime rate. As of Sept. 19th, New York City, which has more than five times the population of Philadelphia, had only 336 murders this year, a 4.5 percent DECREASE over the previous year. 

But hey, if New York is looking for a gal who fits all the qualifications to be a success in Democratic identity politics -- namely she's a black female -- Danielle checks both boxes.

Just make sure the NYPD allows their police commissioner to sport clear nail polish. 

Outlaw may also fit the bill if New York City is looking for a low-key, low-energy police commissioner with a laid-back West Coast personality who routinely shuns the spotlight in favor of having subordinates like Deputy Police Commissioner Dales face the TV cameras. 

One thing's for certain --- many Philadelphia cops would love to see P.C. Outlaw, known among the troops as "MIA," as in missing in action, relocate to the Big Apple. 

"Promote her out of town," one cop said.

Another cop, a former commander, asked, "How can she run the NYPD that's double in size when she can't even run Philly?"


  1. OMG that would be fabulous! Wish she could take Kenney and Krasner with her!!

    1. That would be extremely fabulous!

    2. Oh Jim Kenney would simply love to be Mayor of NYC! Or something.
      NYC so closer to the Hamptons, which are so much better than Margate.
      And I think the Beyonce has a home there.

    3. She is know on the street as Police Chief Kiss Curl/

  2. Don't let the door hit ya

  3. Did she ever acknowledge any of those court notices from Internal Affairs???

  4. Your estimate of 583 homicides for 2021 may be a little on the high side. There have been 556 homicides in the past 365 days. The daily homicide rate since 1-1-2021 is 1.483 per day indicating about 543 for 2021. I believe there is a 95% probability that the 2021 Ghoul Pool winner will between 530 and 556.

  5. Hopefully. She’s a toad
