Brooklyn liberals create woke neighborhood watch in response to homeless man killing
Quote:A group of Brooklyn liberals have created a neighborhood watch group in response to the recent killing of a dog by a homeless man. At their first meeting though, attendees spent less time talking about how to better serve and protect their neighborhood, and more time on expressing discomfort with policing and squabbling over the group’s name.

According to the Daily Mail, the group is calling itself the Park Slope Panthers, and says that it wants to follow the model of the Guardian Angels, who guarded the New York City subway system in the 1970s and 80s. Shootings and violent crime are up in the city across the board.

"Do we want to organize a community safety patrol, and take our park back? Think what the Guardian Angels did to take back the subways in the 70s/early 80s," group organizer Kristian Nammack write in a social media post on August 20. "We may also get to wear cool berets. I'm being serious."

Nammack organized the group after a golden retriever mix, named Moose, was killed on August 3, after a homeless man chased down him and his owner, Jessica Chrustic, attacking both with a large stick and trowing a container of urine on the dog.

Moose died days later of internal injuries sustained in the attack.

In a call to action posted to MeetUp, Nammack, a financial consultant, wrote, "In light of people feeling unsafe to use Prospect Park due to recent attacks of both people and dogs, in one case resulting in the death of a dog; and in light of the epidemic of packages being stolen from stoops and lobbies, we want to form a neighborhood watch. The goal is to be eyes and ears and to take our neighborhood back."

According to the Substack Common Sense, writer Suzy Weiss attended the group’s first meeting earlier this month, and recounted how the meeting devolved into squabbling over topics like the group’s name.

The meeting was held in Prospect Park, not far from where Chrustic and her dog were attacked.

Nammack, who had been part of the Occupy Wall Street protests and described his politics as being "left of Lenin," said that while the group was sparked because of the dog’s death, there were other issues facing the neighborhood like rampant homeless people, stores selling Delta-8 weed, packages and other items being stole, and robberies of stores.

“What’s with you calling yourself the Panthers?” One man asked.

Nammack noted that the name came from two panther statues that sit at the entrance of the park, which have been there since 1898.

"Using the Panthers as your group’s name is kind of abhorrent to me," said one girl. "It feels antithetical to what the Black Panthers would stand for."

Another girl, who said her name was Sky added: "It’s easy to be wrong about who you’re going after, particularly when those are some of the few black people still living in the neighborhood, and they’ve been pushed out on the streets by all white, ultra-wealthy people."

In regards to the assailant that prompted the group’s formation, who had been seen recently chasing down another woman and her dog shouting "let’s see some action here!," the group was hard-pressed for answers.

"So, it sounds like this person has been pushed out of an unimaginable amount of systems," one man said, adding that the assailant was most likely "neurodivergent."

“Crime is an abstract term that means nothing in a lot of ways,” said Sky. “The construct of crime has been so socially constructed to target black and poor people.”

Not long after the meeting had started, a group of people in their early twenties, sporting medical face masks, arrived with a large speaker playing electronic music.

One of the members of this group said, "We are super not into you guys having your meeting or doing anything in the park," adding that he wasn’t "super into abiding by the structure that you’re setting up."

According to Weiss, Nammack woke up to red graffiti outside of his house which read "don’t be a cop, Kris," after expressing concerns regarding the assailant to his local council person’s office.

A website has also been launched, taking the name Park Slope Panthers. The website reads: "Hi! Were you looking for the 'Park Slope Panthers?' Prospect Park doesn't need your racist bs, thanks!"

The website adds, "I am all about community care — but let’s work on harm reduction tactics that benefit everyone, versus 'neighborhood watches' and 'patrols' that only incite more racist heavier than there already is. Also, 'Park Slope Panthers?' Are you people for real?! Jesus."

I tried to read the whole thing, but I can’t force myself to care that much. I’m just left with a feeling of deep gratitude that I don’t live there.

By the way: Prospect Park is Chuck Schumer’s neighborhood in Brooklyn. The article is about his peeps.

A neighborhood watch. I wonder why no one has ever thought of that before?

Here’s the website

https://parkslopepanthers.com/

What is wrong with these people. The more I read of things like this, the happier I am to live in flyover country where all the sane people still live.

Can you imagine a global crisis that would force the woke in places like New York and San Francisco to work together.

While their woke-ness would make it easier to agree on important matters, like what proper pronouns to use, the less important decisions like locating food, water and shelter would never be agreed upon.
