Democrat Mayor of NYC Slams BLM as Hypocrites

After an evening of bloodshed from across the city that saw more than 12 people shot, Mayor Eric Adams condemned BLM and defund the police protests on Wednesday.

“Where have all of the people who said ‘black lives matter’ gone?” Adams asked on New York One.

“Conduct an investigation into who was slain or shot yesterday night. I stayed up all night talking to my superiors in the Bronx and Brooklyn, and I was exhausted. The victims were of African descent,” the mayor stated.

Three people were murdered.

At least 12 others were injured in a sequence of shootings that wreaked havoc on areas of Brooklyn and the Bronx late Tuesday and early Wednesday, according to police and law enforcement sources.

A 23-year-old lady and two men, ages 22 and 21, were killed in different Bronx shootings, and the victims were all from the Bronx.

During another period, officials in NYC reported at least four other shootings, according to the police.

Adam’s Full Remarks

In his remarks, the mayor stated individuals who demonstrate against police violence should equally recognize the epidemic of gun violence.

“The lives of these black children who are suffering every night matter,” Adams spoke emphatically on the subject. “We can’t act in a hypocritical manner.”

Subway Shooter Captured

Authorities in NYC reportedly apprehended a man accused of opening fire on a group of commuters at a Brooklyn train station during rush hour on Monday.

A 62-year-old man named Frank James is accused of donning a constructions worker’s headgear, vest, and gas mask before unleashing a barrage of smoke bombs and beginning to fire.

In the aftermath of the incident, a huge manhunt lasting 30 hours was started.

Mr. James was apprehended on Wednesday in Midtown after police got a tip, according to authorities. At a news conference, Mayor Eric Adams addressed the crowd via video and stated James was captured.

In the incident at Brooklyn’s 36th Rail station on Tuesday, authorities said Mr. James would be the only suspect.

23 individuals were injured, with ten of them being shot, according to authorities. The attack reignited calls for an end to brutality in the city’s public transportation system.

Mr. James was apprehended “without incident,” according to Keechant Sewell, the commissioner of the New York Police Department.

Police are needed more than ever in NYC. To defund the police would result in the crime rates increasing in NYC.

Eric Adams, in the eyes of progressives, is probably considered an enemy of the Democrat Party. This is because he stands up for the police, whereas the typical Democrat in Congress nowadays doesn’t at all.

Mayor Adams is a former police chief himself, so he knows exactly how it feels when politicians turn their backs on the men and women in blue.
