The Issue: Mayor Adams’ choice to crush 92 confiscated unlawful filth bikes with a bulldozer.
Did you all sleep properly final night time (“Crushing victory,” June 22)?
Do you all really feel good, secure and safe now that the plant-based mayor destroyed 92 motorbikes?
These automobiles might have been put up for public sale to make cash for town, however he wanted a photo-op to distract everybody’s consideration from his actual issues and failures.
Mayor Adams doesn’t give a rattling about subway crime, smash-and-grab robberies or the widespread open use of unlawful medicine on town streets, simply so long as he can strut round and present his swagger at celeb events. It’s Mayor Bill de Blasio 2.0, people.
I learn the article in The Post regarding Mayor Adams having 92 filth bikes crushed as a result of they had been being ridden on New York streets illegally.
This feels like he’s blaming the filth bikes for legal guidelines which are being damaged. Does this sound acquainted to anybody? Guns are additionally blamed for the legal guidelines which are being damaged with their use.
Doesn’t anybody know that it’s the legal breaking the legal guidelines, not the filth bikes or the weapons? We don’t blame the automobile for the drunk driver.
Mayor Adams, you could lock up these law-breakers to maintain us secure and punish the criminals.
Instead of destroying off-road bikes and quads and making a BS spectacle, they may have bought them, with the much-needed funds going to teams based mostly within the areas they had been seized in.
There are loads of upstate farms that might have used the bikes/quads and would have put them to good use in farm management and group assist to make life simpler for an business in hassle.
Once once more the dancing, party-time mayor misses the purpose. It appears to be like like he’s becoming a member of in on Mayor Putz’s plan of assault. Get out of the excessive life, mayor, and be a part of actuality.
Your mayor is a drama queen searching for any photo-op that demonstrates he’s doing one thing, even when it’s not one of many priorities on any New York City voter’s checklist.
He’s both as clueless as his predecessor was or he’s getting poor recommendation from aides and staffers.
Running a bulldozer over these bikes is all present, and promoting the resultant mess for mere scrap is a foolish and pointless assertion.
The bikes aren’t harmful and evil. It’s the morons and clowns who journey them menacingly and flout all legal guidelines that apply to them.
There are out-of-state public sale and salvage corporations that might have purchased and transported them far, far-off to be refurbished, bought or cannibalized for elements.
The further cash from such an public sale might have gone towards feeding New York City’s homeless or another worthwhile trigger.
And eliminating the 92 bikes that approach wouldn’t have value the taxpayers a dime.
How a lot did the bulldozer stunt find yourself costing New York City?
Shame on Adams for this ridiculous dog-and-pony present.
Destroying a number of filth bikes will do nothing to finish the fixed menace of unlawful bikes on New York City sidewalks and streets.
Pedestrians reside in limitless concern of being mowed down by bicycles and motorized automobiles whose riders ignore all visitors legal guidelines and haven’t any identification and no insurance coverage.
Adams should make it clear that sidewalks are for one factor solely: pedestrians.
