NYC Mayor Eric Adams is city’s top cop, centers policing after protests against police brutality

After record protests across the country demonstrating against police brutality with the killing of George Floyd, and law enforcement’s treatment towards communities of color, NYC elects a cop to its top leadership. Where they do that at?

Self-described vegan and “real estate man” Eric Adams is the new mayor following Bill De Blasio’s rocky ending as the Big Apple’s leadership. Adams is a 25-year veteran of NYPD who retired as a captain. Less than two months in, Adams already is embroiled in controversy due to his political surrogates and business allegiances.

Adams, who met with President Joe Biden in early February says he is pushing for a safer New York and a better New York Police Department. Those two goals are oil and water. Can he fuse the two or let NYC eat cake? Or will he and his Impossible Burgers make the cut? We talk about power-brokering with Afrika on Weekly Check In.
