BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton’s Town Center Mall closed mid-day Monday amidst social media posts suggesting that a protest was planned for the mall Monday evening.
Boca Raton Police and other departments have been following social media throughout the day as posters claim potential protests in Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Parkland and other area locations.
BocaNewsNow.com first reported on the posts this morning but opted to not name locations or other specifics. Now that Town Center Mall has closed, we feel the need for a self-imposed “embargo” has been lifted.
Communities in Parkland and Boca Raton have been mentioned on social media as potential locations for nighttime protests.
Police throughout the area say they are preparing for what they would be, at most, peaceful demonstrations.
