Snitch of the Week: 2/19 - 2/25

(Say he won't...)

Eric Adams, the founder of 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement, spoke out in October 2005 about NYC's convenient handling of a Homeland Security alert.

At the time, the city has just announced an alert for a terrorist subway attack four days after they heard about it and just in time to steal the headlines away from Bloomberg's then-recent snub of a mayoral debate in Harlem.

Of course the threat was unfounded and called off as bullshit and as a member of an external group he is allowed to speak against

But that didn't stop the NYPD from bringing up departmental charges against Adams alleging that he "did wrongfully divulge or discuss department business without authority and permission to do so" and committed acts that were ''prejudicial to the good order, efficiency or discipline of the department by disseminating misinformation to the public regarding this N.Y.P.D. operation.''

After 22 years of service and less than a month away from his pension, he could lose it all if the case goes against him.
He says he has no regrets and did the right thing. I would agree.

Eric Adams risked it all to stand up to the bullshit machine of Republican terrorist alerts that always seem to happen around election time and for that Eric Adams is the Snitch of the Week.


  1. That is a great story. I truly hope that he wins out, we need more guys like that in power.

  2. great post double S,
    you better belive that the NYPD and the PBA have been gunning(pun intended) for ADAMS for the last 15 years.

    He disclosed some messy shiite about PHIL CARUSO(former PBA chief) about 10 years ago. CARUSO still got the department nod because racism trumps truth at NYPD but I knew then that ADAMS had to be gangsta.

  3. Now that the NYPD is no longer majority white, we'll see what happens...

  4. "The Human Resource said...
    Now that the NYPD is no longer majority white, we'll see what happens..."

    Yes, we'll see if blacks will "snitch" on themselves as quickly as they snitch on
    whites....I don't think so. They protect their own.
