A lot of looting and protesting occurred in the Bronx day before yesterday on Monday. And Bronx Business Owners are unsure of the motivation of the protestors. The reality of the situation is that one of New York City’s most treasured Bronx shopping areas has left many owners devastated.
Owners of Businesses understood the tension between cops and looters/protestors but what they are having a hard time wrapping their heads around is why target Bronx businesses who have worked hard to get where they are and are an important part of the Bronx community?
The perspective of several owners and witnesses was that police officers stood back and let the looting happen. What worries peaceful residents is what is going to happen if the cops let the looters/protestors destroy the neighborhood again and again and again?
