New York City Mayor Eric Adams addressed the alarming spike in crime in the liberal city, especially when it comes to the city’s subway system. During an interview with Jan. 1, Mayor Adams said he didn’t feel safe when he took the subway on his first day in office, noting he even had to call the police to break up a fight.

Townhall reports:

“On day one, I took the subway system, I felt unsafe. I saw homeless everywhere. People were yelling on the trains. There was a feeling of disorder. So as we deal with the crime problem, we also have to deal with the fact people feel unsafe,” Adams said in the interview.

ABC noted that “even before the killing, his [Adams] administration had announced plans to boost the presence of police officers in the subway and reach out to homeless people riding trains as part of a mission to combat both ‘actual crime’ and ‘the perception of crime.’”

“We’re going to drive down crime and we’re going to make sure New Yorkers feel safe in our subway system, and they don’t feel that way now. I don’t feel that way when I take the train every day or when I’m moving throughout our transportation system,” Adams told reporters on Tuesday.

ABC reported that police charged a 61-year-old man, Simon Martial, with second-degree murder for pushing Michelle Alyssa Go off the train platform under Times Square on Jan. 15. Assistant District Attorney Hunter Carrell described the killing as “completely unprovoked.”

More Democrat cities have seen drastic spikes in violent crime and now communities are demanding they be held accountable. In Philadelphia, Republicans want to pursue impeachment proceeds against a liberal district attorney.

    1. New York, just like this country under Biden, is its own worse enemy. Unless the country can purge all these left wing democrats from our governments, at all levels, this country will cease to exist as the United States of America.
