Local reports indicate that a group of protesters gathered outside the office of Rep. Dan Goldman in Brooklyn on Wednesday, and officers from the New York Police Department subsequently arrested several individuals.
Footage posted on X (formerly Twitter) shows protesters chanting, “Ceasefire now.”
According to a witness video posted on X, the police present at the scene warned the protesters that they may face arrest for “disorderly conduct” due to their act of blocking traffic on the roadway. The video captured an NYPD officer warning the crowd, “You will be placed under arrest for disorderly conduct if you stay on the roadway and block vehicular traffic.” The officer emphasized staying on the sidewalk and crossing the street only when the traffic signal allows.
The reason behind the targeting of the politician’s office remains unclear. However, it is worth noting that Goldman was one among the 22 Democrats who voted in favour of censuring Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for her comments on the Israel-Hamas war.
In a public appearance, he shared his personal experience of escaping Israel with his family following the harrowing Hamas terror attack on October 7th.
