ホワイトハウスによると、バイデンは木曜日にニューヨークに旅行し、アダムズと会う予定です。 “銃犯罪と戦うための彼の政権の包括的な戦略について話し合う, which includes historic levels of funding for cities and states to put more cops on the beat and invest in community violence prevention and intervention programs, as well as stepped-up federal law enforcement efforts against illegal gun traffickers.”
Biden’s trip comes after thousands of uniformed police officers from the country flocked to New York City’s 5th Avenue around St. Patrick’s Cathedral to pay their respects to fallen NYPD officers Jason Rivera and Wilber Mora, who were shot and killed while responding to a domestic violence call earlier this month.
The shooter was killed by a third officer.
During Rivera’s funeral, his widow criticized newly sworn-in New York City District Attorney Alvin Bragg, WHO 発表 shortly after taking office that his office will no longer prosecute some crimes.
“Although you won’t be here anymore, I want you to live through me,” Dominique Luzuriaga Rivera said. “This system continues to fail us. 私たちはもう安全ではありません, not even the members of the service. 私はあなたがこれらの法律にうんざりしていたことを知っています, 特に新しいDAからのもの. I hope he’s watching you speak through me right now.”
Bragg was present in the room at the time Rivera made the comment, and his office told Fox News shortly after the funeral that he is “grieving and praying for Detective Rivera and Officer Mora today and every day.”

“ニューヨーカーは、暴力の海が私たちの街を飲み込んでいるように感じます. But as your mayor, 米国が後れを取っている限り、そして私がこれまでに見た制裁が続く限り、それは起こり続けるでしょう…彼らが制裁した2つの銀行のうちの1つ, I will not let this happen. 私たちは暴力的な少数の人々に私たちの街を明け渡すことはありません,” アダムス, a former police captain, said at City Hall Monday. “Gun violence is a public health crisis. There’s no time to wait. We must act.”
