‘Fear is real, justified’: New Yorkers
blast Adams on subway crime ‘perception’

Original Article

Perceive this, Mr. Mayor! New Yorkers reacted harshly Monday to Eric Adams’ claim that they’re merely experiencing “the perception of fear” on the subways, saying they want the mayor to know they avoid riding the rails for a very real reason: to keep themselves safe. An Upper West Side lawyer said she’s been spending about $500 on Uber rides a month amid the recent spate of shoving incidents that led to the slaying of a woman in the Times Square station on Saturday. “The fear is real,” said the 31-year-old woman, who gave her name as Monica. “When you hear incidents that women are being thrown onto the subway

Ordinary Noo Yawkers can ride the subway in complete safety the way Mayor Fop does. They simply need to hire an armed security detail to guard them, or run for mayor and get free armed security the way the mayor does when he rides the subway for his photo ops.

Wasn't Eric Adams supposed to be a moderate Democrat? A less leftwing option than DeBlasio? Sure seems like it's more of the same in The Big Apple. I'll be holding off on my travel plans there indefinitely.

It seems that's the message from all Dem's no matter what the subject. Things missing in the grocery store. "It just looks like they're missing". Prices going higher, "They just seem to be getting higher". Crime out of control. "It just looks that way". They've been protected in their lies by the MSM for so long, they believe they can keep on gaslighting even when everyone knows their lying. They don't even know how to tell the truth or take responsibility. They are like kids who's parents have always stuck up for them no matter how much of a bully they've been. They still think their parents will stick up for them so they can continue lying. Well, I half expect that they are right in that. But it's gotten so bad, the media can't keep holding the bag. No one's listening to them either.

I will give Mayor Adams a chance to prove that he misspoke when he made his comment about fear...but I still won't go to New York any time soon. In the article, he acknowledged the need to bring down the amount of crime in the subway. In that context, his comment about dealing with the perception of fear may be an indication that he understands that in order to make New York safe again it will not be enough to crack down on crime, there will also need to be actions which give it the look of being safe.

Didn't take long did it. Less than a month and the man has turned into a fraud just like the rest of the democrats. But then again New Yorkers are as dumb as they come. They keep electing democrats and they keep getting screwed over. So what has Eric Adams done to fight crime all of you brain thrusts. Perception, perception, perception. Ad they still don't get it.

Of course, we all know why the previous wave of subway crime subsided in the early 90's. Transit Police Chief William Bratton started arresting turn style jumpers. Seems fairly simple to me.

People perceive that the subway is dangerous because it is. Story after story recounts people (usually women and old people) being beat up, stabbed, or thrown onto the tracks by some "deranged" person of always unidentified race unless the attacker was White (99.999% of the time Black). The same goes for the streets of New York. Even more amazing is if these people are ever caught, they are immediately released by the bleeding heart DA to repeat their criminal actions in the name of equity and equality in justice.

Seattle—A long-time Seattle business owner is sounding off after he said his business has been "hit" by crime seven times in the past three months alone. This past weekend, Jay Ashberg, the owner of Seattle Shirt Company, said there were back-to-back burglaries at his store.

The Secret Service improperly redacted hundreds of pages of records related to Hunter Biden’s overseas travel—and apparently withheld information about trips to China, Russia and other countries, two leading Republican senators claim. In a Tuesday letter to Secret Service Director James Murray, Sens.

Senior Senate Democrats are insisting that universal mail-in ballots and voter drop boxes, measures included in their election overhaul legislation, help to fight racism. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat and chair of the Rules Committee, said the federal voting measure is needed to counter what she called efforts by some states to suppress the vote. “They’ve rolled back things that they’ve changed during the pandemic, like witnesses for mail-in ballots in South Carolina,” she said. “No matter which way they did it, it all adds up to one thing. And that is voter suppression and limiting people’s freedom to vote.”
