Adams admitted for the first time that he met with top gang killers. But it accomplished nothing
Earlier today, Eric Adams was a guest on 105.1 “The Breakfast Club.”
“It can’t just be heavy-handed,” Adams said of the City’s approach to violent crime. “I met with some of the top gang members. Some of them had bodies. Some of them have cases for bodies. And I sat down with them to say, ‘Listen, we have to deal with them ending violence in our city.’ And I want to continue to collaborate with them, crisis management teams, and others who are doing amazing jobs to stem the violence in our city.”
When Eric Adams said “some of them had bodies,” in street terminology, that means that some of the gang leaders that he met with have killed people.

The following question needs to be asked of Adams – Why did you never mention this before in almost two years of campaigning for Mayor?
Were some of these gang members killers who had never been arrested or caught for the crimes that they committed?
While Eric Adams admits that he met and shook hands with gang members who have killed people, he still refuses to shake the hand of Curtis Sliwa, who has saved lives.
I will bring this up in the debate tonight, Sliwa said.
