The Democratic mayors from two of America’s most violent cities, New York City’s Eric Adams and Chicago’s Lori Lightfoot, met on Friday to exchange ideas for combatting skyrocketing crime and were shredded for even pretending to know how to deal with the violence considering their track records.
Both leftist mayors have found themselves butting heads with their city’s top prosecutors, accusing them of promoting lenient policies that benefit criminals, letting them walk back onto the streets to commit even more crimes.
In New York City, crime is up over 45 percent compared to last year, according to the Daily Mail. Adams vowed to curb the violence but has been stymied by problems at Rikers Island, an uptick in hate crimes, and an overburdened court system. Rampantly progressive policies coming out of the DA’s office are making things much worse not only for police offices but for New Yorkers in general.
Chicago is just as bad with crime spiking 34 percent this year in a city already notorious as a killing field.

This is equivalent to someone asking OJ for advice on how to stop domestic violence in relationships https://t.co/nNV1OVnJxF

Subway violence is off the charts in both cities and has people terrified to take public transit. Transit crimes are up a shocking 80 percent in New York City, according to the city’s latest crime statistics. Chicago’s subway crime is up 56 percent, according to the Chicago Tribune.
WTTW is reporting that the two liberal leaders convened a hasty closed-door meeting in Chicago just before a news conference took place. The theme of their confab seems to be that guns are to blame for the chaos, not criminals.
“The mayor and I are clear – we are not going to remain silent,” Adams said according to CBS News. “We’re not going to pretend as though there are some conscious failures that are taking place.”
“We’ve got to do more to make sure that we intervene in a proactive way to provide support and love to these young people at the earliest possible stage in life,” Lightfoot glibly added.
“We need help. Cities like Chicago and New York – we need help. How do you take 12,000 guns off the street, and there’s 10,000 more waiting – 10 times that amount waiting – to come back?” Adams said. “It’s not acceptable.”
This is ridiculous!
Adams demonstrates daily, that he learned nothing as a cop under @RudyGiuliani and I, that was responsible for the most substantial reduction in violent crime and murder in US history.
Chicago’s battle with violent crime is one of the worst in US history! https://t.co/vPjPR24T4T

“We are gonna be great partners in the work that we’re all doing,” Lightfoot said to reporters.
“By the time the police interacts with a young person with a gun, the system already failed. We call the police to do everything. We are now bringing in the idea of having community’s involvement and stopping and damming the rivers that feed the sea of violence in our cities. And we’re going to do it as a partnership,’ Adams ridiculously contended.
“We’re going to learn from Chicago what they’re doing on their El [subway] line, so that we can see best practices,” he asserted, according to New York Magazine. The premise is laughable on its face considering the crime rate in Chicago.
“We’re going to travel throughout the country and see what others are doing. Washington D.C. [which Adams visited last week] has seen an uptick [in crime]. All over the country, we’re seeing that, and we are going to put our heads together and operate as a team. How do we make our transit line safe, as well as our streets safe?” the mayor stated.
This is what happens when you have democrats in office. Dude asking the mayor of the only other city that has worse crime to ask how to curb crime. https://t.co/aljpvFlBFY

“That is the energy we are bringing. We have to work together. Cities will determine the success of America. We know that, and it’s time for the federal government to know that,” Adams hollowly proclaimed.
Lightfoot also chimed in with empty platitudes, “I know we are going to be great partners in the work we are all doing to make sure our residents can live safe and vibrant lives.”
Adams outrageously claimed that Lightfoot “clearly understands it is the combination of prevention and the intervention” that will stop crime. All evidence to the contrary.
“We have to turn off the faucet that is continually feeding the river of violence in our cities,” he declared. “There is a tint of racism to this.”
hahahahahahhahahah NYC is about to become a way bigger crap hole then ever before. If you haven't left yet what is keeping you in this failed state? https://t.co/YluURrlohK

But even with all the talk, nothing specific was actually decided upon between the two leaders.
The New York Police Department announced last month that they will put 658 cops sitting behind desks out on the street instead to further fight crime, according to the New York Post.
