Astonished over lack of cameras and monitors in deterrence!

Continuous monitoring surveillance requires only one camera for four streets or blocks when placed at corners.one trained technician can cover multiple monitors.there are no reason to believe that this should not be funded by the city, county and state.If schools , places of worship ,public areas receive funding this should be politically proposed n persauded by capable community leaders n professional political office holders.

Doesn’t it pay to be PROactive instead of always just REactive..?

מ׳גייט אין גאס און מ׳קוקט נישט אוף די בהמות.
בפרט צו זיי עפעס זאגן
אפילו א נוטראל ווארט אזוי ווי גוטן טאג
מקוקט נישט און רעדט נישט צו הינט
אזוי האט מען מיר איסגעלערנט

While the victim did not have his cell phone on him, boruch Hashem, maybe the headline of “another Shabbos, another assault” was hashgocho protis and we need to all strengthen in making Shabbos holy.No, I am not saying the victim, who was doing his best to keep Shabbos, but encouraging others in making yheir Shabbos holy.

Homeless Mentally Ill Anti-Semites

Did the perp come from the homeless shelter for drug addicts and the mentally ill or mentally ill drug addicted anti-semtics that are dumped all around Kingsbrook Shul ? Did the perp come from a) Kingsbrook Mental Health Facility – just opened 3 yrs ago b) Salvation Army Homeless Shelter ( Clarkson & Albany) c) CAMBA – Albany & Winthrop d) the mental health facility next to True Value ( ENY Ave across from supermarket ) e) the soon to be opened “Bridge” (ENY Ave next to KFC Utica Ave) – ty Jacob & Jessie – you turned your back… Read more »

The CH community leaders

They ARE the problem!
Barry Sugar cares. We need more like HIM.

Only solution:
April 22, 2018 5:05 pm

we’ve got to ONCE AND FOR ALL, get together – ALL of us – and most importantly Check Our Egos At The Door! and with Bitul and common interests and unified purpose, discuss/brainstorm the issue.
THIS will have the desired effect!

The entire modern world has adapted to continuous surveillance with mounted cameras and monitors to control every crime area.one camera fpr every street,being monitored in the police station.is a needed and practical solution.i
Eretz YISROEL manufactures the best systems. The Chinese government purchased a huge amount of them ,recently.the money needed is worth it.

You can strengthen your neighborhood of crown heights by following the Boro park tactic. 25 years ago certain edges of Boro park were unsafe because large amounts of Arabs left bed there. Not just any arabs but the ones that hate Jews. So in no time we flooded their area with Chinese. Today there are 150 thousand Chinese. Go look at 8 ave. All Chinese. They don’t bother jews. You need to flood all of the crown heights borders with massive chinese as a buffer zone between the Jews and the others. All jewish apartment landlords can do it. You… Read more »

Why dont the community council take control and make us have more police protection.. and make the black people scared of us they should not have the nerve to hurt anyone!!

The Rebbe was in favor of strengthening the neighborhood, not fleeing and having more patrols.

how about making a demonstration?

Not a single commenter here has said anything remotely similar to your so-called satire. So we must conclude that you simply have no heart for a fellow Jew (assuming you are one), or indeed for a fellow human being (also doubtful whether you are one).

So I look forward to hearing that you’ve gotten attacked and beaten, so that we do can point and laugh and write stupid “satires” about it.

April 22, 2018 10:52 am

Why aren’t there elections for a new vaad, community leadership, get the old dogs out. This community has so much dysfunction it can’t even help itself.. so sad… all the current representatives and elected officials must be replaced.

The remarks this monster said prior to his attack on the Yid
April 22, 2018 10:50 am

point directly to the select diatribe made by Richardson at that meeting! Agee with number # 20. Lew Fidler had no possible reason to make up a story about Richardson. We are seeing the results for sure!

These two incidents are a sign of a growing situation. Crime is up and police patrols and response are poor. Our community leadership is the worst! I know them all, and they do barely anything to enhance the security in CH. Our leadership is focused on photo ops, networking, and defending the elected officials while our elected officials do little for CH. Did you know the 71st pct had close to 200 more cops in its pct??? They were slowly moved out and we are left with an inadequate precinct. Did you know on an average night there is less… Read more »

April 22, 2018 9:28 am

For the next few days, there’s a fancy tower-like device with floodlights on it, to create the sensation that there’s now “extra surveillance.” This lasts for just a few days, and then that’s it: back to normal, which is inadequate at best. While “south Crown Heights” has been an excellent place to live–and still is: and improving, overall, all the time in my almost 15 years living several blocks south of Empire–the area around that stadium has sometimes been a kind of no-man’s land, where many lowlifes feel they can get away with dumping stolen property (including burned shells of… Read more »

Pathetic conclusion to reach.

Yes we must all make a BIG DEAL about this

The politicians ruined NY long ago
April 22, 2018 9:26 am

My father, A”H, grew up in the Bronx, from 1914 until the depression years. He said that what ruined NY was that businesses wanted cheap labor. But the locals would not go for such dirt cheap wages. So, what did businesses do? They imported people from out of town, who were willing to do it. But, the big problem was that among this population was a large criminal element. So, lo and behold, is it any wonder that the crime rate ran up so high in those areas where this group lived?

I’m just here for the entertainment: I love how some of the more intelligent comments suggest that Yakov Behrman is suppose to be Batman-esque crimefighter. Precious!

“Why didn’t Yakov save him?!” He frantically clacked misspelled words into his crumb-clogged keyboard, trembling with indignation.

Where are our community leaders now??
April 22, 2018 8:14 am

Our “community leaders” were so Quick to defend diane Richardson who spews the same hate, probably it’s because of her and the like that this guy had this violent outburst. Where are they now?

Extra patrols
April 22, 2018 8:07 am

Strange that nearly every article about violence in the neighborhood ends with the NYPD saying they will be adding extra patrols, but somehow I never see more cops out on the streets.

He called hatzolah when he got home. Where’s the compassion?

He wasn’t carrying his phone, he called when he got home. That area is technically called East Flatbush, where dozens of Jewish families live.

Why do you conclude such about אונזערע?!
Has it accured to you that he probably called from his hl house once he got home

Is he okay?

the man did not have a cell phone on him. he managed to make it home and call hatzalah, who called police for him
we should never see the day when jews have no choice but to take cell phones with them to shul on shabbos!

where is the outcry
April 22, 2018 2:46 am

a fellow yid gets hurt and silence.

what have we come to.

do we only care when its our own brother and sister.

In tractate Sotah it says that a person who is walking in the black of night in darkness should be afraid of wild animals and bandits.
In this case he was a bandit and a wild animal

Time to move out of this dangerous neighborhood. Crown Heights is not a safe place to raise a young family.

To #1: If it's the 71st Precinct, then ...
April 22, 2018 12:38 am

…for all practical purposes, it’s Crown Heights.
AND: It doesn’t say that this man was “carrying {a] cellphones to shul on Shabbos”! It only states that he called 911: this could have been using the phone of another person on the street, or that he managed to get home and called from there, or a number of other possibilities.

I spoke to the victim
April 21, 2018 11:59 pm

I know him, he went home and then called hatzalah

April 21, 2018 11:56 pm

Anyone living down in that neighborhood should be carrying a weapon for protection.

not to worry the Nypd will downgrade i
April 21, 2018 11:42 pm

Yes indeed 71 pct NYPD style this will be downgraded to next to nothing no one will be caught its par for the course in C h no matter who iss in charge unless we are accused of being the agitator then it becomes an automatic bias incident &hate crime

Crown Heights?
April 21, 2018 11:35 pm

Wherever it unfortunately may have occurred, it is frightening to think that Jewish people are being attacked – and Hashem should protect each and every one wherever they are, but is Rutland Rd. E. 46th Street in Crown Heights?
Are people now so fearful and taking precautions to the extent of carrying their cellphones to shul on Shabbos? (as it seems this man felt the need to do…)
