… you sheeple learn that it’s time to move from Crown Heights?

Yes, I know it’s home to Lubavitch, but over the years we’ve moved from Lubavitch, Riga, Warsaw, Rostov, and more. Shchunos change, and at some point we learn that it’s time to leave and find a more suitable home. Well Crown Heights has changed and not for the better, it’s time to get out.

Can you please provide a source to back up your brilliant assertion that this kid had a rock thrown at him due to “machlokes” and “prostkeit”? I’m assuming that you do indeed have a source and would not just be looking to use someone else’s anguish for your own agenda, because that woudl be utterly despicable.

a long time ago, there was a horrible riot known as the Crown Heights Riots, rachmana litzlan. It began because nobody stopped it from happening- those few minor injuries that began it all.
Rabboisai, we must prevent this from happening! We do not need a repitition of the crown heights riots, chas vshalom. Prevent this from happening!!

Don't march on Friday!

Verizon is digging up Kingston Avenue. If you’re serious, do it Sunday, alert the media….Chuck Schumer loves a camera on Sunday, maybe he will show.

Please don’t mix what people do between themselves and the Aebershter, and what is required according the torah for a community to do for the safety of the of the people. Stop this none sense!!! Think about this: would u want some to tell u that when this happens to u or family, absolutely not! so don’t tell that to someone els, unless ur so nieve that u really don’t see something wrong with the safety and security of the community.
Brocha Vehatzlacha to everyone!!!

We must all do our part, on a Natural front (Better Policing, cameras and self deffense training) and Spiritually, strengthen the (well known) segulos which impact the community’s safety.

Darchai students are advised by school policy only to walk to and from school and Brooklyn Ave not Rutland or other streets.
The police should provide crossing guards and or the school should charepone between Rutland and Empire

November 14, 2013 12:00 pm

This is an outrageous and terrifying situation. How do the police and/or their superiors not take strong action to stop this horror immediately (a week ago)? All the suggestions above are valid. Meanwhile, parents, do everything possible not to allow your children to walk home from school alone, especially from a bad neighborhood. Our kids need our own protection while the entire horror has to handled by the powers that be. Please, especially younger children, but even bachurim should not walk alone right now. These hoodlums are bullies and cowards – they start up with young kids. The larger the… Read more »

Last winter tow Hispanic boys walking up Rochester Avenue toward Eastern Parkway threw stones at my wife who was walking around the playground at Lincoln Terrace Park. I stood up and shouted that I can throw rocks better than them. They laughed. I couldn’t throw stones because there were parked cars. I have uncanny accuracy and, perhaps, could have broken their heads, ‘halyevi.’ I lifted my hand, as if I had a cell phone, and yelled: “I’m taking your photo and calling the police.” They took off like two deers and ran north. Big problem here in NY State is… Read more »

Why would the SCHOOL let a 10 old leave school if their are in a dangerous area.

November 14, 2013 10:00 am

Friday at 11 am is not the best time for a big turn-out. If you want to make a statement ( and not look lame ) move it to a time when many more people would be available – like Sunday. You should do major PR – like sending home fliers with our schools & making official announcement on our websites. Then you alert the media that this is happening so they will come to cover it. It is worth it to take the extra time to do it right then to rush & have it flop. But before doing… Read more »

happened to us..
November 14, 2013 9:58 am

i was with my friend and some little african american kid ran by us and hit my friend. the kid couldn’t have been more then maybe 7 years old max. not sure what he was doing out at dark by himself. he laughed and snickered and looked back at us as he ran off down kingston.

we were both just kind of frozen and only called shomrim 10 minutes later but i know now that was a huge mistake. i was just nervous and didn’t want to be involved with any big story but i feel dumb for that now.

November 14, 2013 8:47 am


IMO we need peace between the two patrol groups, it’s time to put egos aside for the sake of the community. Forget about the marked shmirah a nd shomrim cars, what ever happened to the great police work from shmirah years ago. I remember the great JJ pshemish with his unmarked car, he would be up nights following suspicios people in order to prevent crimes, although he had a full time day job. If they could make peace the community would respect them, and more folks would join them in patrols.

BS”D as I said the new mayor is not even in office and the natives have shown that they do not fear. Just wait until 1/1/14 NYC will become a jungle Chas v Sholem

This is a good idea but it should be switched to this SUNDAY so that many more people can join in – Friday at 11 am leaves out most of the community – switching to Sunday also gives you more time to spread the word ( fliers from schools, article on this website, etc ) Please keep us posted.

Tell the media
November 14, 2013 6:01 am

It’s the only way we will get any protection. I don’t see anything has changed at all re police presence since the “knockout” events. No more police, no security. I am not surprised this happened….time to take matters into our own hands. If the thugs want a war….they should get one.

November 14, 2013 4:21 am

Mass demonstration in crown heights this friday starting at 11am in front of 770 going down to the 71pct . Spread the word lets get the entire shechuna out there.

If you look like a chocolate bar you will be eaten
November 14, 2013 12:31 am

if you look like a chocolate bar you will be eaten people make your choice now do you want to keep banking on this that surely the police the community counsel and everyone else just need you to write one more comment or FB post and they will come to the rescue .or you can take responsibility for your self and your family and do what ya have to do

wake up yidden
November 14, 2013 12:05 am

and stop the machlokes and stop the prostkeit so that the shechina can protect us!!!
