imagine if it was a bochur who hit the black male

imagine if it was that same bochur who hit the black male that had exited the building

Then there would be an uproar.

There would be marches and all that other baloney stuff that people convince themselves show that they are kind caring people, except, the marches, speeches and newspaper headlines only happen for very specific situations and have nothing to do with real care or love, but what’s politically in style at the moment.

Enough, there was a 2 on 1 , stop being sheep , I’m not asking for bochrim to start fights ch”v , but walk with your head up , see who’s coming , the attacker will be automatically deterred ! if it’s 2 adults walking with confidence, and a attacker hits hit back !! עַ֚יִן תַּ֣חַת עַ֔יִן שֵׁ֖ן תַּ֣חַת שֵׁ֑ן יָ֚ד תַּ֣חַת יָ֔ד רֶ֖גֶל תַּ֥חַת רָֽגֶל׃ we inflame the attacks when we don’t fight back people repeat behaviors they can get away with its sad but true in cities like n.y.

not so simple,

especially that you don’t know if the perosn if c”v not healthy mentally or has a gun or knife etc…

in most cases it is best to get away if that is possible than try to engage the person

Time to get the old style patrol running. That’s the only language these thugs understand.

Worth learning the history
When Kahana himself came to Crown Heights to try this shtick, the Rebbe was not happy.

It’s about time that this privileged class that everyone is supposedly supposed to tiptoe around starts paying for its criminal, animal behavior. Let’s take back our neighborhood and make it safe for humans again.

I thought there were more police deployed after the Texas hostage situation, especially since this weekend was the Kinus HaShluchos??

So where were they?

Oy! Is he ok?

I’m not saying we should take it like sheep…

We should do everything we can do deter and /or fight back
But sometimes there’s not much we can do
Who’s volunteering to be jewish protection patrol all night at every corner? (Can’t expect big numbers of people to)
And the police don’t actually care
They care a little bit but not much
I say the best thing is to say words of Torah when walking in the street, and walk in groups, avoid walking alone after 11pm

LEARN MARTIAL ARTS AS SELF DEFENSE. HOLD A COUPLE OF THESE GUYS DOWN AFTER YOU DEFEND YOURSELF AND THE ANIMALS WILL HUNT ELSEWHERE.
MOSHIACH NOW

Agree! Enough is enough! Defend!
