Back on April 11th, New York City Mayor Eric Adams introduced two-new robotic dogs to the NYPD and NYFD's arsenal purchased by the city. Previously, former Mayor Bill deBlasio leased a robotic dog for NYC but never allowed the police or fire departments to use the technology because of public-privacy outcries. So, the former mayor enjoyed an expensive, low-maintenance pet, very much in-line with his tenure.
As the New Yorkers began to gather to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the horrific attacks on the city and the nation, a former Major League Baseball pitcher who became a police officer in New York City, was killed Sunday morning on his way to work. The assignment he was heading towards was the September 11th memorial ceremony in lower Manhattan.
