Thousands of people have taken to the streets of New York City since Saturday protesting the death of a Minneapolis man in the hands of the police. CrownHeights.info will be posting basic updates and critical information regarding the protest and any threats to the Crown Heights Jewish community.
These updates do not count for any smaller splinter groups, or people who decide to do criminal acts on their own. Please continue to take extreme caution and maintain heightened awareness.
(The NYPD has done a great job tonight and there are few groups roaming the city, and near zero looting going on. I will be signing off now for the night. Stay safe everyone!)
