NYC Mayor Adams asserts mistakes in Texas school shooting won’t be made by NYPD

On Monday, New York City Mayor Eric Adams asserted that law enforcement’s slow response to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, wouldn’t happen in the Big Apple because of the training the NYPD and other first responders receive.

“That is not going to happen in New York,” Adams said.

“The goal is to go in and stop that immediate threat right away.”

Adams said that “not only would the police go in with an active shooter, but the FDNY [and] the EMS.”

“They’re trained to go in with an active shooter,” he said.

“It appears as though this was treated more like a barricaded armed person or a hostage negotiation scenario instead of an active shooter,” he added.

The statement of Adams came after the police, who responded to the Rob Elementary School shooting, accused of being too slow to confront gunman Salvador Ramos.

Due to the alleged slow response of the police officers, 19 students and two teachers were killed in the shooting, including Ramos.
