Activists call on Adams to oppose stop-and-frisk

Activists are calling on mayoral frontrunner Eric Adams to stop supporting stop-and-frisk, the controversial NYPD practice ruled unconstitutional in 2013, and are urging voters not to rank the Brooklyn Borough President on their ballots on June 22 if he maintains his position.

“For Eric Adams, who I think is a good man, to resurrect policies that have been long oppressive, and dangerous, and lethal to Black and brown communities in the name of getting votes is disturbing at the least,” said Reverend Kirsten John Foy on Wednesday, in front of Adams’ Nostrand Avenue campaign office.
