There is going to be a protest starting shortly in my neighborhood. It's not going to be good from what I'm reading. I'm reading stuff like Tonight's the night comrades, Tonight we say F...the city and we move into the residential areas..the white hoods...and we take what's ours. omg..there's no petrified or crying icon..I'm freaked out. Please pray it's peaceful.

Praying for peace in your neighborhood! We saw the same messages last night, so we slept with guns by our sides!

I'm so sorry this is happening in your neighborhood. I pray that it's peaceful. I think if it were me, I'd be thinking of staying somewhere else tonight. That would scare the cr@p out of me! So sorry.

Omaha is closing down early today. Still a curfew in place for two more days. It has me worried. I am praying for peace, as well.

If itís any consolation, that rumor about residential neighborhoods has been flying here, too. It hasnít materialized. As Slughorn said, ďThese are mad times we live in! Mad!Ē I hope your area stays peaceful.

The threat about the neighborhoods is everywhere.

I'm not trying to minimize it, but it's unlikely a direct, specific threat to your area. It's a group trying to stir up trouble for sure but it's unlikely to be acted on.

Stay safe. My sister in Minnesota sent me pictures of the SWAT teams set up in her neighborhood. It was a long weekend for her & her husband, and for us worrying for them.

Praying for peace soon. I am afraid of what will have to happen for this to end across our country.

I pray that those who are not protesting peacefully will hear George Floydís brother, the message he shared, and stop all the violence.

Saying a prayer for peace in your neighborhood.

In my city the police decided not to engage tonight, and that worked. Lots of people were out late but there was no violence/vandalism/looting (at least last time I checked- around 11 PM). Hopefully it continues. The police chief marched with the protesters this afternoon. I hope things ended up going smoothly in your neighborhood.

Yes, I read that the threat to engage in violent protests in residential neighborhoods has been all over. Nothing happened yesterday thankfully. Altho in the city, Macy's and other stores were looted. The 11:00 curfew didn't work (big surprise) so tonight it's 8:00 curfew. There is also supposed to be a peaceful protest at 1pm today where the ambulances from all over had been staying (pic I posted on Friday pics) I'm hopeful that it will be a peaceful one. It's 2 blocks from my house and my walking path at that exact time every day. I'll be going the opposite way today or actually staying in and going much later. Thanks for all the responses. Stay safe everyone

Crazy4first.. sent you a pm

Glad nothing happened in your neighborhood. Right, no one's cared about curfews.

CNN says a white nationalist group was tweeting that.
