Eric Adams has no answers after this brutal and heinous crime

Each and every day New York City increasingly resembles the fictional, crime-ridden Gotham City from the Batman series.

Crime has plagued this metropolis, and innocent law-abiding citizens are the ones who end up paying the price for this lawlessness.

And now Eric Adams has no answers after this brutal and heinous crime.

New York City may never recover from years of Democrat control

New York City has been controlled by far-Left Democrats for years now, and the results have been devastating.

More specifically, New York’s soft stance on crime has turned the city into hell on earth.

Criminals are now emboldened to commit crimes with little to no fear of any meaningful prosecution or punishment.

Such lawlessness was on full display in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood in the early morning hours of Wednesday, January 18.

At the Smoke City smoke shop on 9th Avenue, a group of rowdy young men entered the store and according to the store owner, the group was loud and rambunctious.

Naturally, the store owner was worried that the group might attempt to steal from him or cause trouble, so he decided to kick them out of the store.

The group of street thugs did not take kindly to being tossed from the store and they started an altercation with the store owner outside of his business.

Before too long, one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the store owner in the leg.

The good news is, the store owner is expected to survive the gunshot and is currently in stable condition.

New York City needs to make some serious changes to the way they handle crime

If New York City ever hopes to be a great city again, then city officials need to get serious about stopping crime.

This means hiring enough cops and giving those cops authority to actually stop criminals.

Even more critically, it requires dismantling pro-crime policies such as “bail reform” which only go to help criminals and enable them to commit more crimes and destroy their communities even more.

The real victims of these pro-crime policies are law-abiding citizens, such as the owner of Smoke City, who fear for their lives every time they leave their homes.

New York City mayor Eric Adams pledged to tackle crime when he ran for office, however, he has yet to take any meaningful action to stop out-of-control crime.

If crime is ever going to go down in New York, serious action is needed immediately.

Removing radical far-Left Democrats from positions of power is a good start, however, that may never happen in New York City.
