Clarifying Clarence Norman

Among the people endorsed yesterday by the Grand Council of Guardians, an umbrella group of black law enforcement unions, was Eric Adams: state senate candidate in Brooklyn, former head of the organization, retired police officer, and defender of Clarence Norman.

At the event, I asked Adams if his remarks about Clarence Norman squared with the goals of law enforcement groups like the ones that just endorsed him. He clarified his remarks about Norman, (which I reported here), sang the praise of Brooklyn DA Joe Hynes, and said the legislature should have handled Norman’s infractions.

For your listening pleasure, here is Eric Adams.
