Video shows wreckage of Times Square after night of mayhem (NY Post)
— Andrew Solender (@AndrewSolender) June 2, 2020
Video from Monday night showed the wreckage and destruction left behind after looters stormed into dozens of stores and took off with stolen goods, leaving behind a trail of debris.
One video showed tables overturned and boxes splayed out across Broadway as police attempted to institute an 11 p.m. curfew.
Roving gangs spread out in Midtown ….

NYC needs someone to lead & give direction. The NYPD has been on stand down for days. Cops are getting seriously hurt and we are losing the city. If the Governor won’t take charge send Federal personnel. @realDonaldTrump @POTUS @NYCMayor @FoxNews @NYPDnews https://t.co/AZGGC6N4If

FOX: Looters continued to break into stores in New York City late Tuesday night and into the morning, despite an 8 p.m. curfew, but reports indicated that the scene was much calmer than the past few nights.
Thousands of protesters in the city disregarded the strict curfew and took the extraordinary step to essentially ban cars south of 96th Street during the curfew hours, according to Fox5NY.com.
The city, like others around the country, has been rocked by protests over the death of George Floyd, which happened in Minneapolis on May 25 while he was in police custody.
Video surfaced online that showed a Zara clothing store being looted in lower Manhattan and about five men used bats and crowbars to gain entry to Nordstrom Rack on 31st Street and 6th Avenue. They were reportedly scared off before stealing anything.

As part of the enhanced measures, police installed checkpoints on the streets to block unauthorized vehicles. In some places, as protesters continued to march into the night, there was relative calm. But evidence of vandalism was once again visible in some parts of the city.
A group of marchers was arrested on the West Side Highway after the 8 p.m. curfew, the New York Post reported, but videos from elsewhere in the city continued to show large crowds into the night.
One video from Times Square showed large crowds of people still gathered in the street nearly two hours after the curfew.
Around 9 p.m., hundreds of marchers busted up a Verizon store at Fulton Street and Broadway — near City Hall — the Daily News reported. The crowd moved down Canal Street and returned to Broadway, smashing windows along the way, the report said.

In a separate incident, NYPD police officers in Brooklyn fatally shot a suspect who was accused of shooting another man, the Post reported.
About 30 minutes before curfew time, thousands of protesters made their way toward Trump Tower in Manhattan. They showed a heavy police presence with uniformed officers and steel fencing installed in an effort to minimize looting and violence.
In a video posted to the New York City Police Benevolent Association’s Twitter, PBA President Patrick Lynch called on the mayor to give police officers more support and allow them to do their jobs.
“Roving gangs running up and down the street, under the guise of protests — when it’s 12 o’clock at night, it’s not a protest, it’s a riot — it’s looting,” he said. “The mayor has to say now, ‘It stops today.'”
DE BLASIO’S NYC: Looters Smash Stores in Manhattan, Flee in $500,000 Rolls Royce Before Cops Arrive
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio struggled to contain widespread violence and looting in all five boroughs this week, with new footage surfacing on social media showing criminals fleeing the scene of the crime in what one user claims is a “$500,000 Rolls Royce.”
Looters are literally pulling up in nice cars and cleaning out stores in #Soho. What #Curfew? #RIOT #LootingIsNotProtesting #GeorgeFloyd #NYCPROTEST #NYCRiots #NYPD @NBCNewYork pic.twitter.com/jIDZK1J4IA

“An NBC producer filmed men pulling up luxury cars before they appeared to ransack stores in Manhattan during a fifth night of rioting after the killing of George Floyd. Keith Feldman posted a video on Twitter of men getting out of expensive cars, one of which was claimed to be a $500,000 Rolls Royce,” reports the Daily Mail.
Vandals and looters also struck stores in mid-town Manhattan and Brooklyn despite De Blasio’s curfew.
Feldman wrote above his Tweet: ‘Looters are literally pulling up in nice cars and cleaning out stores in #Soho. What #Curfew?’
Another user then retweeted his video and said: ‘That’s a $500,000 Rolls Royce on the right, incredible.’
