Eric Adams Names NYPD Commissioner in Front of Cop Killer Mural

New York City mayor-elect Eric Adams (D.) on Wednesday named the next commissioner of the New York Police Department while standing in front of a mural dedicated to a convicted cop killer and other controversial left-wing icons.

Adams announced his selection of Nassau County chief of detectives Keechant Sewell at a press conference held at a housing project in Queens and attended by scores of uniformed NYPD officers. The announcement took place before a large mural that depicts civil rights leader Malcolm X, longtime Communist Party member Angela Davis, Black Panther founder Huey Newton, and convicted cop killer Assata Shakur.
