Adams Tells Parents to 'Inspect What You Expect' [Video]

adams drugs child Adams Tells Parents to 'Inspect What You Expect' [Video]Brooklyn state Senator Eric Adams, of “Stop the Sag” fame, has released a new YouTube video that educates parents on how to go through their children’s rooms for guns, drugs, and other contraband. The video is part of a campaign against gun violence, and features Sen. Adams (who served 22 years on NYPD) searching rooms in his own home and warning parents to be on the lookout for items such as cut up straws, bamboo papers, bullets, and crack pipes.

“The message is: you expect your children to do what’s right,” he says in the video. “But you always have to inspect what you expect, and that’s the key to providers of preventive safety.”

He pats down pillows looking for handguns, searches dolls and books for hidden drugs, and looks behind picture frames for bullets. He also advocates going through kids’ personal belongings.

“You should always, when your child brings in his popular knapsack, with many different locations,” he advises. “Look through it to see what exactly is your child carrying in addition to a book. Something as simple as a crack pipe, a used crack pipe… this is a discussion piece where you should start speaking with him to find out what is he doing with it.”

Sen. Adams warns parents that they must feel empowered to regularly conduct thorough searches of their homes.

“You write the Constitution,” he states in the video. “There are no First Amendment rights inside your household.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
