Curfew

Curfew

Do they all live less than a half-hour away from 770? If not, they’re going to be out and about when they are required to be home on curfew.

These protest mean nothing.

These protest mean nothing.

They’re just frustrated for being locked in their house for three months.they dont care at all about the incident in Minnesota.

not true

if no one is protesting than the police won’t be scared to hurt and profile black people by people protesting fist of all there is more awareness about this issue

Looks like the only people wearing any protective gear are the riot police…not a single photo of anyone social distancing….

Aaaah, memories!

Sharpton’s Shabbos march through Crown Heights at the tail end of the riots, after the murder of Yankel Rosenbaum HY”D was also “peaceful.” If you saw that march, as I did, you may well remember the eerie & terrifying feeling that this would not stop. And it hasn’t: Freddy’s in Harlem was a Sharpton event. He and “Hymietown” Jackson are just getting started. Don’t let up your guard for a second. We all know this abomination in Minnesota is the Jews’ fault: it always is. Only Black Lives Matter – Jewish lives certainly don’t. Don’t be complacent.

‪Can we take a small break to discuss anitisemitism perpetrated by blacks here in New York in general and in our community in particular almost daily?!

No peace?! I understand No Justice tho
Guest
No peace?! I understand No Justice tho

“No peace” implies that they’re not capable of being civilized people…that’s what the chant started as – then they decided to put it next to no justice. I dunno, I think it’s time to start fining them, and giving citations. Locking up doesn’t work, maybe when they lose their stimulus checks and unemployment money they’ll care.

Stop Stereotyping the NYPD

Stop Stereotyping the NYPD

1) It is wrong to blame a NYC police officer for the actions of a police officer in Minnesota, just as its wrong to blame a black politician in NYC for the actions of another black politician in another state 2) The fact that the protesters chose to break curfew, assemble and march through NYC streets is an example of lawlessness that is allowed to happen and giving in to the mob. Appeasement. 3) Why don’t NYS Senator Myrie and NYS Assemblywoman Richardson go out and stop looters from destroying property in Manhattan if they think they can do a… Read more »

Exactly, protest all day you want; not at night

Mass protests at night are extremely dangerous. We all can see that criminal looters and arsonists take advantage of police being busy and the cover of the night. There is simply no reason to allow this.

5000 people going by 770 and not attacking our neiborhood is a miracle. Notice all jewish areas in brooklyn were spared such as williamsburg and boro park and flatbush.

Pogrom not Riot
Guest
Pogrom not Riot

What we see going on today is a riot. What happened in 1991 was a Pogrom. Let us not loose site of this important distinction. From the Governor to the Mayor to the 71st Precinct refused to stop the violence against us because we are Jews. These so-called leaders gave Al Sharpton, YM’Shmo free rein to incite and lead the Black community to harm us and our property. They also refused to call out the National Guard which could have easily quelled the Pogrom. And, President Bush could have cared less. We owe much gratitude to President Trump for his… Read more »

Did not need the National Guard

Did not need the National Guard

The NYPD has the highest number of police in the nation. They are
the best-trained. The problem we had with the Pogrom was that the
order for the police to take appropriate action was withheld for 3 days!
This gave free reign to the Pogromists to wreck mayhem and destruction with impunity. In fact, rumor had it that the police were going to stage a mutiny, had the mayor continued to do nothing.

Finally, the order was given for the police to move in. This they did successfully without the National Guard.

Mutiny

Mutiny

an open rebellion against the proper authorities, especially by soldiers or sailors against their officers.

Many of us crown Heights’rs have to ask siri what that means so im just making it easier
