Eric Adams Says NYPD Should Not Be "Demonized" After Controversial Arrest Of Rapper C-Blu

New York City mayor Eric Adams defended the NYPD, earlier this week, after statements by officers regarding the arrest of rapper C-Blu were “wholly discredited” by a Bronx judge. A gun carried by C-Blu, whose real name is Camrin Williams, went off during the arrest, piecing Williams in the groin and hitting Officer Kaseem Pennant in the right leg.

The 16-year-old rapper was charged with attempted murder, but it has since been reduced to assault and gun charges.
