New York City Mayor Eric Adams called Black Lives Matter activists “hypocrites” for protesting George Floyd’s murder in 2020 but not the victims of recent black-on-black shootings. According to New York Police, three people were killed and at least 13 others were wounded in shootings that occurred in the Bronx and Brooklyn late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Adams also asked a question to adults and caregivers, “It’s … 10 p.m. Do you know where your children are? Why are 16-, 17-, and 18-year-olds out in our streets armed with guns [late] at night? When are we going to start asking these serious questions?”
