Top cop enjoyed parade with Halloween hoi polloi
On Halloween, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, above right, was mixed in among the throng at Bleecker St. and Sixth Ave. enjoying the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. Sporting a leather jacket, he was standing with two unidentified companions, and didn’t appear to be part of the parade police detail. A marcher in the ghoulish procession portrayed Gede, below, the Haitian Vodou goddess who, like the police, is a protector — though of graves in cemeteries.
