    Shame on the police for trying to sweep this under the carpet. These thugs need to be stopped.

    Attacked for being a jew

    Attacked for being a jew

    The black teenagers attacked this person because he is a Jew and no other reason. These people learn it from their parents. This is a case where the children MUST pay for the crimes of their parents. We must get tougher as a community and start taking revenge. find out where these people live and repay them. If history teaches you anything, these people run the legal and law enforcement systems in this city. You’ll only get justice by taking it yourself. Look at Lemrick Nelson. He admitted guilt and walks free. The police fear for their own safety, lack… Read more »

    don’t let the guy get away, he needs to be sued in court, just like a traffic accident, keep his file,

    make sure it goes to court, the Yeshiva does not care, they want you to daven Shachris mincha mariv and stfu

    We need security at the CH schools. They also need to teach these black kids a lesson when they catch them, so they learn not to mess…

    At this point it seems very clear that the residents of Crown Heights need to come together to move these people out of this out of the neighborhood

    What is intresting, is the fact that another site today celebrated 30 years of the revolution in crown heights where the old comunity council was removed and replaced.

    It is obvious from this story and many other shortfalls in CH that the subsequent Vadd Hakalls only set us back about 40 years as far as quality of life and no affordable housing.

    How ironic

    This poor kid.. I know him well, and this isn’t the first time it happened to him.. He was also a victim of those “knock out” games back in 2013.. we all stand by you!

    OMG!!!!
    ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME???????????
    THERE SHOULD BE SOME KIND OF LAW THAT IF SOMEONE IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL HARRASSES ANYONE THEN EVERY SINGLE STUDENT SHOULD GET A CONSEQUENCE EVEN IF THE OTHER STUDENTS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. THIS WILL STOP ANYONE FROM DOING ANY HATE CRIMES. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
    I DONT SEND MY SON TO OHOLEI TORAH FOR HIM TO BE HARRASSED BY SOME HULLIGANS WHO DECIDED TO PLAY HOOKEY. WHERE IS THE SUPERVISION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL THAT THESE HOOLIGANS GO TO?

    When will these trash people get over what’s holding them back from living productive lives. Yidden truly left mitzrayim, it seems that they never left their mitzrayim. Until their schools and educations and family teach morality, they’ll continue to live like animals generation after generation. How sad.

    strange. one or two teenagers aren’t afraid to punch someone from another group of 20? says something about the punchers – they feel confident they can get away with it. i’d say that’s a problem for the group of 20.

    If this would happen on Kingston Ave everyone will just watch and walk away like sheep.
    Shmira was actually the one that caught this thug ,and is now working closely with the hate crime division in 1 police plaza

    why is this happening now?

    why is this happening now?

    The police need to figure out why there has been such an increase in crime lately in our area! And deal with it accordingly. This is crazy, is there no one educating these kids?

    racism

    especially being a frum website, hence understanding the injustice of being treated in certain way just because you are jewish, you should know better than to make this into a racist article. there was no need to emphasise that the teenager was black- white people can also act in such a way. yes, what happened is absloutely unacceptable, but to add in racist connotations was totally unnecesary.

    Yes This guy was BLACK as well as ALL the previous ATTACKS. So just stop posting these stupid comments of yours on this site and you might as well join the BDS and all other left wing anti semitic movements.

    As usual the NYPD is useless at best and corrupt at worst, with these failures we will easily have another Yankel Rosenbaum as the NYPD works for de blasio who loves “diamond dealer” Al Sharpton.

    Sorry to hear about the painful injury. I just spoke to a popular Black male, father, resident of Crown Heights who lives opposite ‘Frankel’s Shul’ (President & Utica). He is the father of 10 and a business owner. He said, 25 years ago this August, (Time of ‘Pogrom’/Riots) the ambulance refused to help the injured Black children and left. We need a community-wide meeting. I then met a Jew in the local park (Lincoln Terrace Park) who said that the Black man I spoke to is “A very nice man.” I responded: “Yes, this past Shabbat, while standing on the… Read more »

    #36 ‘Why is this happening?’
    (Partly simple) We live in a violent and materialistic society. Recently, on the news, there is much talk about a famous boxer that just died. This society glorifies materialism, violence and money. It’s pervasive.
    There is a news story about a Jew, Israeli, Mr. Chilki who scammed many of much money. There is a film being made/made about him. Instead of hating what he did, they want to support it by making it glorious or noteworthy, all in the name of profit. ‘Those who love HaShem hate evil.’

    It actually WASN’T SMART what he did, he asked for a fight which he COULDN’T WIN and then ran in middle of the street and ended up getting punched in a 2 on 1! He stuck up for NOTHING and ended up looking like an idiot.

    All of the people saying that “they should be driven out of crown heights” really should take a step back and think about what your saying. Yes, there are a lot of issues with the two cultural groups in CH that need to be sorted out, but creating some sort of expulsion is the most disturbing and anti- Jewish idea I’ve ever heard. We are a nation that has been driven out and expelled for thousands of years, and turning the table is so hypocritical. Issues can not be sorted out through hate. If we are proclaiming such things, than… Read more »
