NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly defends controversial practices

"We've done everything we can reasonably can do to protect the city," New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

After more than a decade as the head of the largest police force in the country, Kelly will retire at the end of the year.

In addition to joining the public speaking circuit, Kelly will join the Council on Foreign Relations as a "visiting fellow".

Susan Candiotti recently sat down with Commissioner Kelly and asked him about his tenure, the state of terror and the controversial legacy he'll leave behind.
