The American flags placed above the Brooklyn Bridge were apparently bleached into white flags Tuesday morning, leaving New Yorkers and law enforcement authorities baffled as to who or why anyone would do such a thing.
According to theAssociated Press, the New York Police Department believes a group of four or five people is responsible for the incident. Security footage reportedly shows the suspects walking along the bridge’s footpath around 3:10 a.m. About 20 minutes later, the light on the bridge’s Brooklyn tower goes dark, while the light on the Manhattan tower goes out 12 minutes after that.
The NYPD’s deputy commissioner for counterterrorism and intelligence, John Miller, said that authorities do not suspect a link to terrorism, a sentiment that was backed up by Police Commissioner William Bratton.
‘‘We don’t take these things lightly, or as a joke, or as art or within the realm of speech,’’ Miller told AP. ‘‘These are issues of trespass – they put themselves in danger, they put others in danger – and that’s why we investigate it.’’
