Eric Adams is likely to replace New York Mayor Bill de Blasio in the upcoming election, according to The Red State.
Adams is a 22-year veteran and retired Captain of the NYPD.
“New Yorkers are feeling this energy,” Adams.
Adams supports pro NYPD and pro-police.
From The Red State:
Crime frequently topped polls as a leading concern among voters, vaulting Adams — a former police captain who ran almost singularly on a promise of restoring safety to the city — into first place and minimizing the impact of the “defund NYPD” movement that got a foothold in city politics last year.
Early statistics showed that gun crimes soared by over 200% in the weeks following de Blasio’s move.
Gun violence exploded across the city after the NYPD disbanded its anti-crime unit of plainclothes cops on June 15, with three times as many shootings in the last two weeks of the month over the same period in 2019, police stats show.
And the shocking rise in gunfire — to 116 incidents from 38 between June 15 and July 2, a 205 percent increase — meant scores more victims were hurt or killed by bullets this year over last year.
