The pro-Hamas "protesters" have shown many times that they have no concern for law OR order, and will do anything to grab attention. Will this be the first time the "Ball drop" in Times Square is cancelled or prevented?

Mayor Eric Adams said he is “sure” pro-Palestinian protesters will try to interrupt the New Year’s Eve ball drop in Times Square after already disrupting the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

“We’re sure there’s gonna be some type of attempt this year,” the mayor said at a Tuesday news conference.

Unless security is tight at all the major New Year’s Eve events, there may be protest and or terrorist attacks at one or more events.

I live in NY. They absolutely will protest and there is a fair chance something violent will be done tonite, but I am thinking that will be from a lone wolf person.

Probably, as Democrats like to ruin everything for everybody.

Instead of staying away and letting people who want to celebrate the New Year do so, they’re going to interrupt and ruin it for everyone.

The security for the ball drop is going to be very tight. But there is definitely a chance of pro-Hamas protestors trying to disrupt the festivities.

You wont see the flag waving and stuff because you cant get them thru security. That will be done outside of the lockdown zone. But they will still try to something inside the zone.

I am more worried about a lone wolf like last year where a Muslim convert teen from Maine tried to kill a cop.
