The Issue: Mayor Adams’ attraction to New Yorkers to assist clear up the difficulty of unlawful weapons within the metropolis.

If Mayor Adams needs to be robust on crime, he has to disgrace Albany by publicly talking out and placing all blame on the governor for each murder and main crime dedicated (“Mad city,” May 12).

Unless there’s a penalty for crimes dedicated, any program the mayor comes up with will fail.

It’s early, however Adams has not proven any indicators that he’s able to doing the work to deliver the shine again to the Big Apple. Instead, it seems to be like his major aim is to change into a star.

Adams might have sharp-looking fits, however they’re empty when he wears them.

He ought to have asserted his get-tough-on-crime coverage from Day One. There’s been an excessive amount of rhetoric and posturing. The man is filled with himself.

True, the City Council and state legislators aren’t any assist and will tie his fingers — however that’s all of the extra cause he ought to declare battle on lawlessness in our metropolis.

Jerry Chiappetta


Adams was elected by the individuals of New York to wash up the huge mess left by Mayor Bill de Blasio and to get soft-on-crime insurance policies modified. So far we’ve got lots of phrases and little motion to again up these phrases.

Adams calling on all New Yorkers to assist him struggle crime is just not definitely worth the paper it’s printed on. What we’d like are actions and penalties.

We, the individuals of New York, demand that criminals be assist accountable for his or her crimes and made to serve time as punishment. We demand that soft-on-crime insurance policies and bail reform be terminated and district attorneys and jurists uphold the rule of legislation and maintain criminals accountable and produce them to justice. We demand that victims get the justice they deserve.

Actions converse louder than phrases. Be a person of motion, Mr. Mayor.

After 5 months in workplace, Adams has proven in lots of ways in which merely being a retired New York City police officer doesn’t robotically qualify you to be the mayor of New York City.

The mayor must name out the politicians in Albany by title, primarily Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, to let the general public know who’s accountable for the refusal to vary the insane bail-reform legal guidelines. Don’t financial institution on Gov. Hochul.

The mayor held a press convention to indicate the general public what number of weapons had been taken off the streets. What we have to know is what number of criminals had been taken off the streets.

A legal who’s incarcerated is unable to commit crimes in our metropolis.

Dick Mills


New York City is a joke. Our mayor brags about what number of weapons he’s taken off the streets, however the thugs get let again out, and easily get one other gun.

Our joke of an lawyer basic, Letitia James, is just too busy on witch hunts towards former President Donald Trump to struggle actual crime.

Until you’re taking the thugs off the streets, New York City goes to be unsafe for respectable individuals.

Kevin Mullen, Holtsville

Politicians can proceed to bloviate in regards to the gun madness in perpetuity. However, weapons alone are usually not the solitary cause for the unfettered legal component that’s being allowed to permeate our streets.

Hardened profession criminals who pull the triggers of those unlawful weapons are the first trigger for this madness. These wicked dirtbags are coddled by a politically contrived criminal-justice system that enables for no bail.

The law-abiding residents of New York and different liberal-controlled cities are left to fend for themselves due to these preposterous, criminal-embracing politicians.

The individuals of those nice cities should vote these grievously inept politicians out of workplace to revive some sense of safety to their on a regular basis lives. Until then, the warped mayhem will proceed.
