The “Citizen Local Safety Alerts” app. A short while back, my son stopped to chat with an on-duty CH police officer that he knows, but the officer told him, “You shouldn’t be outside right now, there’s an active shooter they’re hunting down in CH.” I was alarmed that a message hadn’t gone out to the community with this advisement. That’s when my son told me about this great app that an officer had once told him about. With this app, you gain awareness of the reality of what’s going on in CH. A refuah shlaimeh to our babies who were… Read more »

Same news different day!

We called Shomrim
March 14, 2023 12:24 pm

Shomrim chased them for a few blocks but they managed to get away after running into a building and locking the door

Which building?

March 15, 2023 9:39 am

Very important to know

March 14, 2023 12:30 pm

I called Shomrim, who brought the victim to the station to speak to detectives. They got camera footage within minutes to provide to the police.

March 14, 2023 12:52 pm

The bochur who was beaten is my brother his face is all bruised up he was walking on Albany and Carroll together with a freind which you think would be safe when will something finally be done to these animals to prevent them from starting up with us?

Brother Too

He is my brother too. We cannot stand for this. These animals have no fear on our streets. This is Galus and must stop.

Prevent them from starting up with us

When they are caught, held down and have Shmira/shomrim take over.

Or do the unthinkable: גיב זיי מכות רצח.
As long as these thugs, (who, in this case were kids!!!,) see that you can get away with it, they will!

We should all he carrying mase spray

Thank you Shomrim.

Thank you Shomrim for going above and beyond

March 14, 2023 1:31 pm

Vote the DemocRATs out

Where is the video?
March 14, 2023 1:31 pm

I saw a video going around? Maybe share it so we can help identify them in the future!

Same group attacked a few months ago
March 14, 2023 1:32 pm

The same group attacked boys a few months ago on union and Albany

Same violent group

March 14, 2023 2:38 pm

I believe this same group attacked bocherim on Albany Avenue just a few weeks ago as well, then went on a mini crime spree.

How many times????
March 14, 2023 1:56 pm

Why does no one do anything??? Our children are in DANGER.

Everyone is in danger!!!

No one does anything?

A civilian followed them on foot whilst on the phone with Shomrim.
If more people did that. Things WILL change

Meeting yesterday
March 14, 2023 2:55 pm

Wasn’t there just a delegation from CH meeting with our new representatives just yesterday?? Why wasn’t this brought up? Seems like only CTeens, Kinus and guests get extra security, I understand these people can’t afford to get mugged while coming to visit Ch but those of us who live here are free to be mugged?

This is very unacceptable
March 14, 2023 3:02 pm

WE need a few police cars circling the neighborhood This child will be
traumatized for a very long time Is there even reform school to send these bad kids to? Where are our elected officials and representatives from the community council? WE must protest this or chas veshalom it will happen more and more. Hashem yerachem!!!

March 14, 2023 5:36 pm

Shomrim does patrols every Shabbos. They should start doing every night.

March 14, 2023 3:15 pm

These are the results for voting democrat crown hights is a jungle of crime with no repercussions. these dangerous animals if caught will be released an hour later it’s such a joke the only solution to this madness is to catch these criminals and Lock them up for at least 5 years for committing a violent crime like the crime that happened last night. Until that happens which will likely never happen crime will continue and only get worse. I’m stating the obvious but it’s also the unfortunate reality. this is the price we pay having useless people in charge… Read more »

And then what? We all know that no one’s going to do anything. That’s just pointless 😂

March 14, 2023 5:38 pm

We live in an era of no consequences.
The “community leaders” keep supporting those who are ruining our community. Why????

I am so angry
March 14, 2023 4:58 pm

Why is this being allowed to happen !!!! Why is our basic rights to walk in the street safely being taken away from us.
This has to be dealt with now . They know they can do what they want to us and our children, we are a joke in their eyes , we are weak !!!
Where are our “representatives” stop everything you are doing and demand now that our kids can walk home from school without being beaten up and do it now !!!!!

Just imagine…
March 14, 2023 5:37 pm

If 2 Jewish teens robbed a black kid and broke his nose .
We would all be afraid to leave our homes for fear of getting hurt during the violent riots that would ensue .
It would be front page news and the boys would be caught within 5 minutes and sentenced to 20 years for a hate crime .

So what should we do

Yidden aren’t violent
How do we get these guys arrested and put in jail for more than 2 days?

the only way
March 14, 2023 6:37 pm

to protect our kids and our rights is by going out and rioting

To the Vaad:
March 14, 2023 7:12 pm

Are we now allowed to carry weapons on Shabbos?

the only way
March 14, 2023 7:20 pm

we need to start protesting 
we need to stand for our rights
and the only way to do that is to show that we have strength and they can’t put us down we just came out of purim where the jews had to defend them self against there enemies so to we should ,may g-d almighty protect us 

just to note 😉 same is true regarding פסח and all other יו״ט

The rebbe was against protests

True but the Rebbe was all about Maaseh hu haikar
This doesn’t mean protesting but something has to be done!
Action needs to be taken so that it’s stops
We have to be able to walk around our neighborhood without fear of being beat up or worse Chas veshalom

They only understand one thing force, if they will be between up they won’t do it again.

March 14, 2023 9:37 pm

Can someone organize a protest in front of our police station with a huge turnout from our community? WE NEED PROTECTION NOW!!!

Catch the Criminals!
March 14, 2023 9:39 pm

These people are a real danger and must be caught and imprisoned immediately. This needs to be done to prevent more violent attacks on our innocent children.

March 14, 2023 11:16 pm

Maybe if they would catch this group and make an example of them then there would be a little less of a comfort to just beat someone up
And the same goes for every time something like this happens
If they run into a building call police helloooo
A building is their protection
Get the army
What is this?

March 15, 2023 12:37 am

Ch should host more often more “megaevents” kinus, cteen and what not. So at least would be more lights, policy, and security around. See how always collive makes a point of showing in our face all of this meetings pictures about “ensuring security for an upcoming big event”

So then, the adage will be 100% true and implemented : “A little light (another big megaevent) will disperse a lot of darkness”

Who else agrees with this?

Community Policing
March 15, 2023 8:14 am

I say it time and time again, we need to have our own security for our neighborhood. We fundraise for everything but this, and this matters just as much if not more!!!

Give our older boys stun guns!
March 15, 2023 6:08 pm

Train our older bochurim and yungehleit to use stun guns, but warn them that these aren’t toys and that surveillance cameras will be used, when necessary, to back up their statements that they were using the stun guns to defend themselves and/or others from physical danger.

What's going to be
March 15, 2023 8:07 pm

This isn’t a new problem in CH unfortunately and things like this happen every so often… will there ever be a breaking point for us as a community where we FINALLY SAY ENOUGH? Time to stop being gentle and start pushing for change! Who can we actually talk to instead of just filling the COLLIVE comment section??
