oh, so it’s ok to have people roaming the streets stealing and punching people in the face… as long as they can blame it on their mental health?

As crime shoots up they are busy worrying about the criminals and how they can make crime easier for them.

Then a few brave Jews came running from the offices across the street and took positions and held him down. At some point, this rabid dog started biting, all those that held this dog, walked behind and around him, pulling him down every few feet. This video only shows the moments in… Read more »

I don’t understand from this post what this attacker did to warrant attention from Shomrim. Did they see him stealing a package? Did they recognize him from pictures of previous thefts and that he was a wanted man?
