Conservatives on social media ridiculed New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ new proposal to combat shoplifting and crime at retail stores throughout the city.

The Democrat mayor’s plan, laid out in bullet point format during a local Fox 5 broadcast, included providing “De-escalation training for retail employees,” and putting kiosks in stores that connect “would-be thieves” to social service.

Twitter users mocked the mayor for his soft, unrealistic plan that seemed no harsher than putting unruly children in a “time out corner,” as one described. Others argued that the mayor’s plan would make the city more “dangerous” than it has already become.
