The New York Post had more on the shocking statement by Mayor Adams:
Mayor Eric Adams slammed Black Lives Matter and anti-police activists Wednesday after a night of bloodshed across the city that left more than a dozen people shot.
“Where are all those who stated ‘Black lives matter’?” Adams said on NY1.
“Do an analysis of who was killed or shot last night. I was up all night speaking to my commanders in the Bronx, in Brooklyn. The victims were black,” the mayor said.
Three people were killed and at least 13 others were wounded in a series of shootings that rocked parts of the Bronx and Brooklyn late Tuesday and early Wednesday, police and sources said.
The fatalities included a 23-year-old woman and two men, 22 and 21, all killed in separate Bronx shootings. At least five other shootings were reported in New York City during a roughly six-hour span, authorities said.
"If Black lives matter, then the thousands of people I saw on the street when Floyd was murdered should be on the street right now."
