A heated discussion about crime in New York City arose during a recent appearance by Mayor Eric Adams on “The Breakfast Club.” The conversation took a tense turn when commentator Olayemi Olurin accused Adams of sensationalizing the death of New York Police Department (NYPD) officer Jonathan Diller.

Olurin criticized Adams for what she perceived as fear-mongering tactics regarding crime in the city. She disagreed with his stance on bail reform policies, arguing that only a small percentage of those released on bail go on to commit further crimes.

The tension escalated when she referenced Adams’ response to Diller’s murder, accusing him of sensationalizing the incident while downplaying other instances of violence involving police officers.

Adams defended his position by saying, “In the same breath that you want to sensationalize, you want to highlight and point out how an officer was killed the other day, which is a rare occurrence across the United States but let alone in New York. New York police officers have killed at least seven people this year, including a 19-year-old.”

He added that he would not dismiss the death of an “innocent person that wears a uniform.” He emphasized his commitment to addressing all instances of violence, regardless of the circumstances. Despite their differences, Adams expressed his willingness to engage in constructive dialogue and listen to opposing viewpoints.

Fox News Digital previously reported that Diller was 31 years old and lived in Massapequa Park with his wife and nearly 1-year-old son. Former President Donald Trump attended his wake on Thursday afternoon.

“Such a sad, sad event. Such a horrible thing. And it’s happening all too often and we’re just not going to let it happen,” Trump said.

The incident also reignited discussions about the need for law and order, with former President Donald Trump weighing in on the matter. Trump condemned the attack on Diller and emphasized the importance of maintaining law and order to ensure public safety.

The attack on Diller is not an isolated incident, as there have been other high-profile assaults on NYPD officers in recent months. In January, two officers were assaulted in Times Square by several individuals, leading to multiple arrests and charges.
