A Coconut Grove neighbor turned to the popular Nextdoor app to warn fellow residents about “suspicious activity” days after Hurricane Irma knocked down trees and left parts of the neighborhood without electricity.
The activity the poster saw: Three African-American young men riding bicycles.
In the Crime and Safety section, the poster wrote, he approached the young men and told them, “We are here.”
One neighbor replied, “Not helpful to racially profile people. Greet and ask if they need assistance before assuming they are criminals.”
