BLM To Cause 'BLOODSHED' If NYC Doesn't Meet Their Demands

Written By BlabberBuzz | Saturday, 13 November 2021 16:45

New York City's Black Lives Matter chapter threatened "riots" and "bloodshed" in the streets if Mayor-elect Eric Adams reinstated the police department's anti-crime units. These units were disbanded at the height of 2020's Black Lives Matter demonstrations and tumults. Progressives were furious when Adams said he would reinstate the units throughout his campaign.

Hawk Newsome, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, announced after a conference with Adams in Brooklyn Borough Hall Wednesday, "If he thinks that they're going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we are going to take to the streets again. There will be riots, there will be fire and there will be bloodshed because we believe in defending our people."

Newsome told The Daily News, "So, there is no way that he is going to let some Gestapo come in here and harm our people. We pray for peace but ... prepare for the worst."

Chivona Newsome, a BLM co-founder and sister of Hawk Newsome continued.

"We will shut the city down. We will shut down City Hall, and we will give him hell and make it a nightmare."

Throughout the meeting, which was live-streamed on Instagram by an attendee, Adams and the BLM activists got into a passionate debate over police policies.

Hawk Newsome told Adams that BLM would hold him accountable for any future misconduct by the NYPD.

Adams replied, "Stop the violence in my community. I'm holding you accountable. Don't hold me accountable. Being the mayor, being the borough president, being the state senator, I put my body on the line for my community, so I'm not here for folks to come and say, 'Eric, we're gonna hold you accountable. No, it's us. We need to do this together.'" After Chivona challenged him Adams continued, "Don't tell me, 'I need to do this'… say, 'We need to do this.'"

Later in the conference, Adams replied to another activist who blamed him for not holding the NYPD accountable, saying, "Brother, I mean, have you been living under a rock?" continuing that he has been "fighting injustices" throughout his decades-long career as an NYPD captain and a politician. "The same things I've been doing over the past 35 years I'm going to continue to do, and maybe you should look at those things I have done."

After the conference, Chivona Newsome told The Daily News, "I don't know if it was misogyny or ageism, but as the only woman in the room, as the co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, Mayor-elect Adams thought it was best to correct me, and he wants to know how he can hold me accountable. We are holding him accountable whether he chooses to hold himself accountable or not."
