Thanks for catching this guy. Crown Heights is a safer place with people like this behind bars

Good news!

Good news!

If this is indeed the criminal he deserves time in jail. Kudos to the NYPD.

Perhaps hospitalized in a mental hospital

The first thing the police do in all of these cases is to take the suspect for a psych eval. Then they determine it isn’t a hate crime and that the suspect is just mentally ill. Then they release back to the streets. The police are accomplices in Antisemitic violence.

I am glad we have direct communication between the DA and our community’s leader, can we pressure the DA to now actually charge the guy with attempted murder? the jury will take his side anyway since itll be made up of HIS “peers”

Don’t know why the criminal is in the hospital but sounds good to me.. however I’d like to hear that he actually gets hard prison time. That’s always an open question around here.

Will the punishment fit the crime?

Yesterday on Fox news a white man gets 11 years in prison for burning a cross in black people’s backyard. The criminal in the crown heights ‘incident’ actually violently assaulted and injured a human being in an animalistic hate crime. Therefore he should get a far more serious sentence. I’m interested to see if that will happen.

Murder charge

Murder charge

They should charge him with murder since that is the expected result when you bash someones face with a brick at full force

In the hospital…..
He will claim insanity and get a free card. How sad.

i hope they dont blame this on mental issues
Guest
i hope they dont blame this on mental issues

because even if he is mentally unstable, he specifically chose a Jew from all the other folks in the park-
either way he can not be around others

Then let them give him life in an asylum

I’m sure he’ll ‘enjoy’ that even more ๐Ÿ™‚

Where did he live ?
Guest
Where did he live ?

Did he live in a shelter or a supportive housing facility for the mentally ill ?

Did he live in public housing or rent stabilized housing ? His family should lose their public housing benefits. Being mentally ill doesn’t mean that you are mentally insane. If he knew what he was doing, and who he was doing it against – its criminal. Trump said to build more mental institutions, not simply unsupervised housing for the mentally ill and homeless – which is what is going on now in NYC.

Mental illness no excuse

Mental illness no excuse

I know a lady who is mentally ill, and on medicine. She says
that mental illness does not exonerate someone who commits murder.
“I am mentally ill. Yet, no matter how ill I am, I would never want
to kill someone.”
