    well said!

  • take a 2nd look says:

    It may be worth for LPD to note who’s arranging this march:
    It’s Marquis Olivert – Proud graduate of LHS.
    You may, however, wanna check some of his recent social media posts regarding the hard working citizens of our wonderful town.
    Maybe that’s why the poeple are worried, Chief.
    Thanx for understanding.

    • thank you says:

      Please be more specific about which social media posts you are referring to. Others would like to check this out too.

  • Daniel Klein says:

    The right to gather for all other groups has somehow been suspended due to the health emergency. I wonder if the US AG will somehow see selective enforcement here.

  • Confused says:

    At this point you are not suggesting boarding up windows? At what point would you after the fact?

  • yidinneh says:

    why does anyone, black or white, want to remember this floyd guy? he was not deserving of a death sentence but he was a low life criminal. he shamed his community. and now he is the cause of much death and destruction. how has he become a martyr?

    • Kaila says:

      It’s not about Floyd. It’s about what was done to him. True he lived a despicable life. But the officer who killed him couldn’t have known that. He was killed because of racial injustice. It’s not about making him into a hero – because he isn’t. It’s about making him into a symbol of injustice, because that’s exactly what he was a victim of.

    • Yael Wise says:

      I find your comment disgraceful. And I un- anonymously say so.

  • perplexed says:

    since when do we walk in peoples memory? let everyone go to the funeral

  • Bubby says:

    All the protests started out peacefully but ended in violence. Why do we think we will fare better?

  • Informed Lakewooder says:

    “Yidineh” and other uninformed posters: please get your facts straight before posting. Have you seen the brutal video? Stop hocking shtissim out of ignorance. Riots and looting are a travesty, but that does not mean that what happened to Floyd wasnt also. All lives matter.

    It is important to take note that the Far Rockaway Protest and March was a very peaceful one. All of the yidden in the town came out to join. Hatzalah marched, and Chaverim, and all of our best community people. They all walked together. it set a very important tone for actualizing the real essence of the protest and the message of the black community.

    Although it is not an arena for women and children, the men certainly can walk and show support, dressed in their holy shabbos kodesh garments and then go home. Good shabbos everyone and thank you HaShem for the yeshuos in advance.
