Peaceful BLM Leader Hawk Newsome Threatens Bloodshed in New York City in Video-ss-Featured

The one leading Black Lives Matter of Greater New York has met up with NYC’s Mayor-Elect Eric Adams so that they can discuss policing. The said BLM official also warned that “bloodshed” will happen if the city goes back to its pre-Deblasio ways, according to a report.

On Wednesday, Adams, who is also a former police captain, met with BLM leader Hawk Newsome, along with several other people, behind closed doors. The meeting happened in Borough Hall in Brooklyn, according to the New York Daily News.

The said meeting had a tense atmosphere and eventually, reportedly became a shouting match. One key issue raised during the meeting was whether NYC could reinstate the anti-crime unit, which Newsome described as similar to the Nazi Gestapo.

“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,” the Black Lives Matter leader said. He went on to say that the said group is praying for peace but is also preparing “for the worst.”

Additionally, per Chivona Newsome, who was a co-founder of the said BLM group and is also Hawk’s sister, “We will shut down City Hall, and we will give him hell and make it a nightmare.”

Adams formerly served as an officer who gained early attention because he spoke critically about the department he was part of and as someone who experienced how brutal the police can be as a teen. He revealed that, at 15 years old, police officers beat him up when he faced arrest for trespassing.

He went against progressive mantras that asked to defund the police. Instead, he stated that he felt proud of the time that he served as one. Despite being seen as the moderate candidate in the Democratic Party’s primary, Adams rejected the label given to him and insists on his status of being a progressive.
