"In the same breath that you want to create a sensation, you want to highlight and point out how a police officer was killed the other day, which is a rare event in the United States, let alone New York.

Growing impatient, Adams said he would not ignore the death of "an innocent person wearing a uniform."

"But you're doing this for the 31 people who died at Rikers," Olurin replied.

After some back and forth, Adams said he didn't want to take it out of context and didn't want people to think he was "underestimating" the "shooting and killing of a young man."

“President Adams, this is not going to work on me,” Olurin said.

"Listen, I'm not trying to do anything on you. I lost a member of the police force. Likewise, the first time I was hospitalized, I go to see the mother of an 11-month-old baby who was shot in the head. The mayor and I sat with her in the hospital, the same way we saw mothers who lost their children to gun violence." "I'm visiting, I'm going to see them," Adams said.


He later said that "many people on the far left" disagreed with him on crime.

You know, a lot of people on the far left are saying, 'Eric, no matter what, people should be allowed to sleep on the streets. They should be allowed to sleep on your porch and inject themselves with drugs. 'They should be allowed to go into stores and steal whatever they want'. Like, people don't always agree with me."
