Mayor Adams says these three things led to Queens cop killing, deadly Harlem subway shove

Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday said two violent incidents that shook the city the night before, including one where a cop in Queens was shot and killed, resulted from a triad of issues that current laws and policies do not address.

At the same time, Adams sought to dispel the idea that crime is running rampant throughout the city, pointing to his administration’s purported success in bringing crime down overall.
