Black Lives Matter activist turns domestic terrorist when he tells New York Mayor-elect Eric Adams that if he allows the police force to go back to their old ways, there will be bloodshed, riots, and civil unrest. It can be directly blamed on former Mayor Bill de Blasio because of the way he indulged Black Lives Matter and sucked up to the “woke” crowd. There are repercussions for his actions, and instead of confronting the enemy when it presented itself, he cowardly attacked them and created a monster.
“If they think they are going back to the old ways of policing, then we’re going to take to the streets again,” said New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome.
After a heated discussion with Adams, Newsome said, “There will be riots, there will be fire, and there will be bloodshed.”
But, thank God Newsome isn’t a Republican walking into the Capitol, right?
I believe there’s a criminal charge called terroristic threats. It’s in New York law.
It’s called “Making A Terroristic Threat Penal Law 490.20 (Committed on or after September 17, 2001).”
Adams ran on being tough on crime, and he won the election. New York City doesn’t share Newsome’s intent on civil unrest. They’re tired, and they’re not going to stand for lawlessness anymore.
Adams told CNN that he said it on his campaign trail, “I’m going to put in place a plainclothes gun unit. We must zero in on gun violence in our community. That was my promise, and I’m going to keep it.”
It’s good that he said it, but let’s see it. Start with criminal charges against Newsome.
New York Police Department commissioner Dermot Shea took away the plainclothes unit because there were disproportionate police shootings. What would Shea consider a proportionate number?
There’s a reason undercover units and drug units get in more altercations and shootings. They seek crime and stop it. There’s a surprise element to their policing style that places them in situations that beat cops might not face. An undercover officer isn’t doing wreck reports or taking larceny calls. They find the bad guys, gang members, and drug dealers who carry guns for protection and arrest them. There’s a larger capacity for possible violence in those units, and it should go without saying that they might have a disproportionate number of shootings. They’re going after the people who would typically shoot at police. A beat cop doesn’t necessarily do that.
