This verbal beating came courtesy of lawyer Olayemi Olurin, who held Adams to his feet on a number of burning issues.

Chief among the issues raised was the use of fear tactics by the mayor and the NYPD to justify over-policing. Adams said this New York The safest big city in the world, to which Olurin replied,

“New Yorkers do not feel safe because of the way the NYPD [New York] The Post and Mayor Adams committed a sensational crime and I’m asking you to talk about it differently.

Of course, the NYPD’s chief proponent wasn’t here for the facts. They decided to treat his comments as nothing more than differences of opinion.

“A lot of people on the far left don’t agree with me…they say ‘Eric people should be allowed to sleep on the streets no matter what. They should be allowed to sit on your back and inject drugs. They should be allowed to go into stores and steal whatever they want, they shouldn’t have to pay on the subway system.’ People disagree with me all the time.

That’s a funny way of saying you’ve completely missed the point.

“You have brought back such policies worst Compared to the Bloomberg era, but more importantly, they analyzed ten different areas… and saw that those neighborhood safety teams did 97% of their searches on black and brown people and a quarter of them are unconstitutional .

Adams proved that he was too short-handed to compete with educated counsel and had too few facts to support his dissenting opinion. Olurin also told the NYPD about his intimidation tactics and they, of course, set out to prove him right.
