The Unwoking Begins

Voters in New York City elected Eric Adams, a former police captain who promised to restore law and order in the big apple, as Mayor earlier this month.  Rebecca Rosenberg and Bryan Lleans of Fox News report that Adams plans to restore the city’s Anti-Crime Unit, a plaincloths team targeting gangs and illegal guns.  The unit was disbanded in 2020 after years of complaints that it was racially biased.  In a recent interview, Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder Hawk Newsome told reporters that if Adams brings back the unit “there will be riots, there will be fire, and their will be bloodshed.”    After claiming that his statement was not a threat, Newsome said that Adams would lead the city to another George Floyd incident.   The elections of Virginia’s Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General, all of whom promised to restore law and order, along with the rejection of the BLM demand to disband the police department in Minneapolis and the election of a pro-law enforcement Mayor, City Attorney and key City Council member in the progressive city of Seattle,  suggest that the people from both political parties have had enough of woke policing policies and BLM threats.
