Re: “ Executives Meet With Oakland Activists, Discuss Efforts to Combat Racial Profiling

"More broadly, the group requested that Nextdoor consider banning posts that describe "suspicions," since those are subject to people's implicit racial biases, and instead direct users to only post crime and safety warnings when they witness actual illegal behavior."

Obviously, if ND could only be used to report crimes in progress, it would have little value for neighborhood watch and crime prevention - one of its main functions. There is a big difference between crime reporting and crime prevention. This would only send people to another venue for this purpose, such as Google Groups.
