Before, the mayor had already granted his relative, who served as a policeman for 20 years, a high position in the New York Police Department.

Adams, who said on Sunday that the white supremacy and the “anarchists” are on the rise, he has suggested that he cannot trust anyone in the Police Department as much as his own family.

“Personal security – my life, my life – I want in the hands of my brother, with his 20 years of police experience,” he said. Adams to add: “He has the police experience, but he also has the personal experience, he knows his brother and he’s going to keep him safe.”
