Not a prank

may also have thought he was just playing a prank
these things are not funny
and besides, vandalizing a bus, stealing items and spraying fire extinguishers into peoples faces can lead to very dangerous and frightening situations especially in today’s day and age-
what you write is easy to say if you weren’t the one frightened and assaulted

Hardly just a prank

The NYPD should investigate who paid them and charge all involved with a hate crime against Jews. Was slashing hundreds of tires of frum Jews in Lakewood last week and beating up Jews in Williamsburg also just a prank? Let’s put a stop to all these “pranks” against Jews.

This is not a simple prank it’s a sacona, the spray is poisonous and acidic to humans to injest or be sprayed on. The child should be examined by a medical professional to see if she was harmed. I know of a story some years ago where a child was seriously injured by having the contents of fire extinguisher poured on him. True scary story, sorry that was terrible!

How would you feel if they did this in your store or your house.

And what may I ask ‘at best’? Apparently you were not the victim – and more likely, do not live in Crown Heights.

No ..

Let them play this prank out on Utica Ave.Would like to see what would happen to them if they tried this there.
It’s very easy to live in a fairy tale world where you believe these teenagers are just kids messing around. They chose a Jewish store because they think it is funny to pick on the Jews.If the community doesn’t take a stand for something like this, then we become vulnerable for more attacks which can only get worse.

Prank -say what?

Huh? It’s an assault not a “prank”

Also the stores chosen were eateries where

foodstuffs may have been tainted by the chemical sprayed. In other words financial loss for the owners who could no longer sell sushi or candies coated with poison. This spray is meant to put out fire but it’s not a harmless chemical ( e.g. not H2O) that we can breathe or injest. When spraying you don’t spray on people. People are supposed to Stop, Drop, and Roll, but don’t generally get this sprayed on them directly. It’s meant for non living objects and is a powerful chemical. Also the stores have a significant cleanup expense

My father once ingested the stuff that come out of the fire extinguisher and now has a permanent breathing problems harmful

When they spray you, you can ask them to say sorry

The comment calling this ‘kids playing pranks’ does not come from someone in our community, people, so don’t take it seriously. Lately trouble makers with too much time on their hands from the outside, who are against the Jewish community because they have to be ‘anti’ something, have been posting comment like this. Those are the kinds of people who support spraying water at the police.

Something a somewhat sinister in all this

I also think this was not a simple prank or their own idea. They were definitely put up to this by outside hateful influences. No doubt in my mind at all!

Great job shmira always doing great job

They spray the police

They spray the Jewish community.. in other words, anyone who is a law abiding citizen. Pity the police did not take care of these low lives when it started a few months ago. Take a good look at their faces, you’ll see them being carted off to jail for much worse in a few years. That’s their only future.

This is just teens making a prank. This isn’t a “hate crime.”

Really?

If it wasn’t a hate crime why would they come to a Jewish store to play a prank? Why not ” play their prank” in their own kneck of the woods, their own community, or family? Wait, you mean it wouldn’t end well for them to do that overthere? Hmm, so if it’s not acceptable as a ” just having fun prank” on my own family and friends, then let’s do it on the people that we don’t like. Oh yes, here it is, We have just come to the meaning of a hate crime
