New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton may be looking to make an exit from his job under Mayor Bill de Blasio, Bob McManus writes at the New York Post.

"I will not be commissioner for [another] six-and-a-half years — that’s the reality," McManus quoted Bratton as saying recently.

"Clearly, departure is on his mind," McManus wrote.

Bratton was police commissioner two decades ago under Mayor Rudy Giuliani during his effort to clean up crime and vagrancy. Today, he works for Mayor Bill de Blasio, who entered office with what many saw as an anti-police agenda. Crime and vagrancy have been on the comeback.

Bratton appears "frustrated," McManus said, in light of his comment on Thursday that "There are people in our society — criminals ... bad people. We need to work very hard to put them in jail and keep them there for a long time."

It may be lost on de Blasio and the city council, Mcman said, but "New York City solved street disorder a generation ago — and Bratton was present at the creation."
