Why Eric Adams Faces A Far More Difficult Test Than Previous Mayors In The War On CrimeAdams faces a boiling crisis that could make or break his legacy. A retired NYPD officer, he has staked his mayoralty on bringing down crime, and with each violent incident that passes, the pressure is mounting on him to deliver an effective response.

And since Adams is one of them, he can make “crime” disappear tomorrow if he wants. As a reporter you should know that. And I assume you do.
