USA Updates Adams says social media firms should have flagged vile rant of alleged Metro shooter Frank James

Before the horrific attack, social media firms flagged worrying behavior from suspected N-Train shooter Frank James by alerting law enforcement to his vile online video rants, Mayor Eric Adams said on Wednesday.

The 62-year-old posted a string of videos to YouTube that often included racist diatribes and in which Adams was lashed out and threatened by name. In one uploaded a month ago, James said he has “entered the danger zone.”

“We’re seeing signs all around us who are leaning towards violent actions and ignoring them,” Adams told CNN during a morning interview.

“I cannot play a song on a social media channel that belongs to someone else without identifying them. Why are we not identifying these looming threats,” Heijner asked. “Why aren’t we being more proactive than waiting for that to happen?”

“There is some responsibility, I think, on social media industries and companies,” he said. ,[We] It should be noted why we are seeing these postings and these threats every day, and no one is giving law enforcement an early warning signal.”

Adams made the remarks hours before James was arrested on the Lower East Side, ending a day-long search that led to a smoke bomb blast in Brooklyn and a loaded subway train during a Tuesday morning rush. She was furious after being shot.

More than two dozen people were injured in the gruesome attack – although no one was mortally injured, it is a stroke of luck that officers have chalked up to jamming James’ gun.

YouTube’s parent company – Alphabet, which also owns search engine giant Google – did not immediately return a request for comment.
