Here comes David Dinkins Redux
November 25, 2013 3:37 pm

As #21 pointed out, de Blasio at one time worked in the David Dinkins administration Look out, Crown Heights! THAT’S WHERE HE LEARNED HOW TO LEAD & GOVERN!

Can we have “undercover shmira” following groups of black teenagers as they leave school? especially when they are seen walking in a pack? These kids , the large majority, don’t know who their fathers are and are brought up by their grandmas b/c their moms are usually too busy with other men.-No morals and a LOT of arrogance , especially since Obama got in. he has not made a dent in the improvement of his fellow blacks-never a word from him about their morality. don’t expect much and be cautious!

Beef up Shmira

JDL was our only help during Dinkins…We need internal surveillance now so not ONE Jew gets hurt again….Refuah Shelema to the 12 yr old boy!

Um, nobody is keeping you here, but we all know why you stay because some authority said so.

Sick and tired of this place
November 11, 2013 2:43 am

I’m sorry, but crown heights is so unsafe. Why can’t young children play outside in day light? I actually just moved here about a month ago and don’t know why on earth anyone would live here. U have to bc of private issues, but if I had a choice, I would never move to a place like this. I’ve never heard about so much crime in my life.

I don’t know what third world country you live in, but 12 years old is definitely old enough for a child to be out on the sidewalk in middle of the afternoon in the United States.

And comment #1 has the more Accurate story!

He also said this is not the first time this group has attacked and Happens all the time!

B”H he is Recovering from the pain and swelling on the right side of his face! 🙂

( he said it really hurt and thought he got punched with Brass knuckles!! )

May Hashem always protect us from our ‘Enemies’ and all ‘Evil beings’ !!

16- exactly! Thats called being proactive and preparing our children for these situations.
20- ok, thats true, sometimes it might not do the job, but it would definitely be a BIG help!
22- no! Thats not ok. Our community shiuld not be like. Its not right that we should have to be scared to let our children out of the house , especially in broad daylight! Thats not normal!
Something must be done.!

Bullying is practiced by adults…even the president.
In Iowa, while electioneering, B. Obama said: “Employers should treat their employees properly.” This was just before, during or after the Agriprocessor’s raid.
Guilty before being proven innocent.
Nathan Lewin, S.M. Rubashkin’s attorney at the time stated this publicly and was shocked that Obama said this because he is lawyer.
Anything for a vote. Whenever the president says: “Let’s work together” I laugh.

Police encouraging criminals
November 7, 2013 11:22 am

When they let them get away with it they are giving the nod to crime. I haven’t seen this in any other neighborhood. That’s why crime against our community is out of hand for so many years.

NO BICYCLE, NO CELL PHONE, NO MONEY. ONLY TZITZIS, YARMULKA AND WHITE SKIN. NOW YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU CALL THIS ?!?!? SHAME ON THE POLICE FOR LETTING THESE 14 YR. OLDS GET AWAY WITH THIS! YOU HAVE THE TOOLS, YOU SIMPLY DON’T HAVE THE WILL AND THATS WHY WEEK AFTER WEEK THERE’S ALWAYS ANOTHER INCIDENT. GO DOWN TO THEIR SCHOOLS AND THREATEN THEM . YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE, YOU KNOW WHERE THEY LIVE AND YOU’LL THROW THEM BEHIND BARS THE NEXT TIME THIS HAPPENS. THEY’RE NOT AFRAID BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE JEWS COMPLAIN YET THE BRASS DOES NOTHING,… Read more »

Please stop panicking.
November 7, 2013 10:20 am

Everyone. RELAX. First of all, this has nothing to do with De Blasio. He won’t be mayor until Jan 1, 2014. Second of all, a strong system of police has already been put into motion years ago by Giuliani, followed by Bloomberg. At this point, the system is already micro-managed by individual precincts, and is unlikely to change. You can clearly see that the 71st precinct is responsive and will hopefully stay that way, no matter who the mayor is. Regarding stop and frisk, it’s questionable at best whether De Blasio will really put an end to it. He said… Read more »

I agree with you

Poor kid
November 7, 2013 9:27 am

I’m so so sorry for the little boy. What an awful shock. I wish him better. In our society, we have many bullies, my son and daughter have been bullied by jewish children and their parents shrug their oh so frum shoulders. And do nothing. When we attack our own, this reflects into the wider world, the real world. Those of you who know you have nasty snotty children, and rant on about the Rebbe, be warned, it could happen to you. My husband even stopped and saved a bully from cushim at a bus stop recently. He saw this… Read more »

November 7, 2013 9:23 am

you can use the term African Americans as the Rebbe thought us instead of “blacks” and show that we do treat everyone with respect (and we are not racist like they are)

The truth is ...
November 7, 2013 8:19 am

It’s your choice to live in a place as unsafe as Crown Heights. Believe it or not, there are communities where kids can grow up without thinking that bars on windows are the norm, where they can safely play out front or out back (or even have an “out back” to play in), where violent crime is rare … if you choose to live in a place that is inherently unsafe, why are you shocked or surprised when things like this happen?

November 7, 2013 8:01 am

umm…to comment No. 22. I don’t know if you were “joking” about leaving a 12 year old boy playing outside by himself, I hope you were because surely at that age you would think he would be safe. Does that mean he can only go to school accompanied by an adult.? I think most places in London, (well there are some areas not too safe) would be safe enough for a 12 year old to play especially in an area with Jewish neighbours.

WHY LEAVE YOUR KIDS ALONE AT 12
November 7, 2013 6:05 am

Im sorry . We jews need to stop blaming everyone else all the time and take some responsibility for once when we make mistakes. Crimes will happen. By no means am I stating this act was ok, and by all means should the attackers be punished. However, we live in the real world. We have to take some precautions because unfortunately the world we live in isnt friendly and Hashem demands that we must look after ourselves and take responsibility. WHY was a 12 year old boy playing alone? It is clearly dangerous and irresponsible of his parents and if… Read more »

You obviously have no respect for the constitution. Stop & frisk the way it was used by the NYPD was wrong and also was used on local frum boys.

If crime ends up going up it won’t be b/c of no stop & frisk it will be b/c the new Mayor learnt how to govern under the amazing Mayor David Dinkins.

If NY descends into “chaos bankruptcy etc,” then you mean things will stay the same?

ROFL! NY Sucks.

wait at same spot tomorrow
November 7, 2013 12:24 am

Shomrim should wait at the same spot that the boy was hurt yesterday and chances are that those animals will be passing again. It is their route home from school. Someone ought to beat those thugs to near-death…I am terrified to let my 12 year old out alone.

To all of you who complained about Mayor Bloomberg and most frum Jews did. You don’t know when you had it good.
Now without stop and frisk the criminals are the winners.
Watch for this city to descend into chaos, bankruptcy etc. ,

besides more Shmira, we need to prepare our kids on self defense…..i think Karate should be part of the curriculum in every school.

We need more Shmira/Shomrim/Volounteers /Cops on the streets patroling and protecting out kids, women and all neigborhood . Noone can do it for us !

‘Refuah Shelaima!’
Infuriating.
This will start vigilantism. The government may not like it but they cause it.
None of this will stop until potential criminals fear the law as is stated in Pirke Avos 3-2.
“Rabbi Chanina the deputy [High] Priest said: Pray for the welfare of the government (lit., monarchy), for if not for its fear, a person would swallow his fellow live.”
Right now the government doesn’t have this virtue because they lack concern for the public, and therefore are not motivated by love. True love would never tolerate this for a second. The punishment would be severe.

November 6, 2013 6:26 pm

Correction the story went very differently! First of all it happened at 2:15 the boy was on his way to 770 and it was a GANG of approximately 15 male African American teenage boys. They sent 2 of them to go and attack the child and after fisting his face and knocking him down to the ground they yelled back to their gang, ” We got him!!!” and received a roaring cheer in respond to a “job well done” the boy was crying hysterically and his face/eye is all blown up This is total hate and must be stopped for… Read more »
