We Must Strike Back at Crime in New York

Once again, crime in New York City has reached such high levels that it worries its residents and threatens its future. Many of us have lived through the time when New York City was a battlefield. When many New Yorkers left. When investment and tourism had dried up.
This should not be repeated under any circumstances.

A few days ago, a second police officer succumbed to his injuries. Answering an emergency call for domestic violence with a colleague, he opened the door of a bedroom in an apartment in the Bronx and was confronted by a criminal who opened fire.

After that happened, Eric Adams, the Pro-Turkish new mayor of New York, who was a former police captain, presented a program that he hopes will address the violence in the city.

This is a serious plan presented by someone who is personally fully aware of the issue and which – with the measures he has proposed – can, in my view, help reduce crime.

One of his most interesting suggestions is to publish the video of the murderous attack against the two police officers-victims, provided that their families would not object, so that the people can grasp the barbarity of the murderer’s act – and the danger that police officers face every day. That will raise public awareness and pressure politicians to vote for measures needed to reduce gun ownership and narcotics trafficking, etc. in New York.

Of course, crime is due to numerous factors, which cannot all be eradicated at the same time or overnight. However, we cannot just stand there with folded arms. We need new strategies, we need to use new technology. People need to wake up. Everyone needs to understand that crime should not be tolerated. That is not a solution in any case. That those who perpetrate crimes will pay a hefty price.
