A Message to Eric Adams
You know Eric, I was and I am still holding out hope for you. You wore the uniform, you had a front row seat to what was truly going on, regarding crime and violence in NYC. You rose the ranks and were out spoken and active on issues important to you. You wore the uniform.
Yet last night you let us down. You jumped on the Commie Democrat talking point that it is guns killing people and causing crime.
“It is our city against the killers,” Adams said during an emotionally charged press conference at Harlem Hospital, where the officers were rushed following the shooting. Adams called what happened an “attack on the city of New York” and “the children and families of this city.” The new mayor denounced gun manufacturers and traffickers “carving highways of death, destroying our communities” and blamed federal authorities for not stanching the flow of illegal firearms into the city.– Eric Adams
5 cops shot so far during your administration. A cop was killed last night and his partner is fighting for his life and you BLAME GUNS and not the predicate violent thugs pulling the triggers??? People who think like this allow these animals back on the street no matter how many times brave cops take them off.
Guns exist all over the USA, in conservative states and towns far more than NYC. Why then is it only in Democrat BLUE cities, where guns are ILLEGAL, that we have rampant gun violence??????
You and every other Democrat know the answer to that. All making them illegal does is to keep them out of the hands of decent, responsible people who actually OBEY THE LAW! No one is that ignorant to think releasing predicate violent thugs from prison and decriminalizing crime will not have a negative impact on violent crime stats.
Eric, your term is still in it’s infancy. Please don’t forget where you came from and what you learned as a NYC cop. You know what works and what SAVES LIVES. These violent thugs are killing black and brown people primarily, so if you need a Marxist “divide and conquer” talking point to run with, use that.
Take violent thugs off the street and crime will go down just like it did in the 90s. Not rocket science. You can’t claim ignorance like the lunatics running our Democrat shyteholes. Do the right thing for decent hardworking NYC residents in these neighborhoods and their protectors. Do your job and save lives Eric.
I remember the last time Democrats controlled NYC…..
They released his killer too!
