Adams Defends Appointing Brother To Key NYPD Post

“He will be in charge of my security, which is extremely important to me in a time where we see an increase in white supremacy and hate crimes.

“I have to take my security in a very serious way, but at the same time, I need that right balance.

“My brother has a community affairs background, the balance that I need. He understands law enforcement.

“He was a 20-year retired veteran from the police department, and I need someone that I trust around me during these times for my security, and I trust my brother deeply.” – NYC Mayor Eric Adams, today on CNN.
