New York City mayor Eric Adams has a significant problem on his hands.
After running on a law and order campaign, it appears as though the city is getting worse instead of better.
For instance, last night, a rookie officer was shot and killed in the line of duty.
City Out of Control

Additionally, his partner, Officer Wilbert Mora, 27, was gravely wounded and is now hospitalized.
He reportedly underwent surgery, but there has been no update on his condition.
According to reports, Lashawn McNeil, 47, allegedly fired upon the officers from inside his bedroom when officers showed up at the location.
A third officer at the scene opened fire on McNeil.
McNeil has also been hospitalized.
Police had been called to the scene by a woman claiming to have been in a dispute with her son.
She gave officers no heads up regarding weapons in the home.
As officers approached McNeil’s room, he allegedly kicked up the door and opened fire.
Adams promised to get the crime in this city under control, but that is hardly the case.
If McNeil survives his wounds, what do you think his sentence should be?
