Black Lives Matter/Antifa arrived in my neighborhood Wednesday night.
They planned to march to the NYPD’s union chief Patrick Lynch’s home. When they could not get there because of police protection the group dispersed onto the streets to create havoc.
Into this scene my 67-year old friend and I found ourselves. A group of eight with a megaphone chanting “Black Live Matter” approached us.
My friend was pushed to the ground and sustained multiple cuts on his arms and head, while I was punched and pushed around trying to come to his defense. It was not a peaceful protest by then.
I give you fair warning, this can and may come to your neighborhood. Be aware and be safe.
