Will Our New Mayor, Eric Adams, actually be able to Curb Gun Violence?
And the Gun Violence Continues
The sad, emotional and tough to take incident that took place here in Harlem, Manhattan, NYC this past Friday, was the shooting of two police officers. The result was severe injury to one officer, and the passing of the other, only 22 years of age.
Action or Inaction?
It is hard to tell if politicians are actually going to do anything regarding the issues they ran on. As the people who, in theory, vote in these individuals, it is our job to keep them accountable. Any progress in getting them to actually take action steps is correlated with our strength in keeping them to their word.
