I thinks it’s always best to call police first in case of an emergency. Shmira can’t respond as fast as the NYPD. But i may be mistaken.

Cops in Brooklyn
Guest
Cops in Brooklyn

Cops in New York will hesitate first, and as stated in the article, the nypd is stretched thin. Honestly hopefully those violently protesting get covid…

You probably are

You probably are

It’s like hatzala vs FDNY. Figure it out

Not correct
Guest
Not correct

You are not right about that. Shmira and Shomrim always respond faster than police. Call them first and then 911

Shmira you guys are BEAST!

Shmira you guys are BEAST!

Keep up all the great work and self sacrifice you guys do for our community.
May Hashem protect you!

Anddd we're back to the regular program, folks.

Anddd we're back to the regular program, folks.

Yep, Corona news is somewhat over, the world now thinks its cool to crowd around and protest, and now the crime articles are going to be back on Collive. Kinda missed it, even though it is not good.

Store Gates.

Store Gates.

After watching the horrific videos of many Stores being Looted & ransacked, and having their windows smashed Tonight in Manhattan & Downtown Brooklyn, As a community we need to act ASAP & Fast, and have ALL the CH Stores that don’t yet have a Gate (Which a Gate is a Extra Layer against vandalism, most of the stores that got Looted tonight in NYC did Not have a gate but only fancy Glass) to have a Full (Not see thru) Gate installed Today, Maybe Shmira or CH Chavierim can arrange with a gate company to come to CH Today, Many… Read more »

Unfortunately, this seems very necessary

This isn’t the first time Crown Heights has been victims to rioting. It is necessary for us as a community to do everything in our power to protect ourselves from harm.

Do Not leave CH
Guest
Do Not leave CH

Everyone should try to stayhome and stayinside over the next few days, Especially those that live on the outskirts of ch, Nobody should Leave CH to go Anywhere, This is pure Sakonos Nefoshos, These very violent protests are everywhere in Brooklyn, Even in CH if one MUST leave their house they should try to stay towards the center of ch as possible, For the people coming back from Upstate after Shavous they should ONLY come to Brooklyn thru Queens, By entering Downtown Brooklyn all the way to Grand Army Plaze you are putting yourself in danger (yes even if you… Read more »

Perspective

Perspective

What happened to George Floyd was not an “incident”, it was unnecessary murder. Portraying the situation as an “incident“ that has led to violence is in accurate; it was violence that has led to violence. People should make informed decisions about where they go and what they do but they should also be aware as to why the protests are happening.

And therefore
Guest
And therefore

Our community should pay for it? Was it a frum crown heightser who shot Floyd? Get real

Just a clarification.
Guest
Just a clarification.

Floyd didn’t get shot to death, a white policeman (there is a valid reason for stating that he is white, because that is what has spawned these crazy protests) was arresting Floyd for the crime of counterfeit money and while he was handcuffing him, he put his knee over Floyd’s neck and choked him for 8 minutes straight while Floyd screamed to him to stop.

pathetic
Guest
pathetic

you are pathetic . atypical liberal that blames everyone for their pathetic behavior . everyone of those terrorists , should lose their food stamps, gvt assistance, unemployment and locked up in jail.they are lucky we live in a weak society, cuz a normal one would have mowed down the terrorists.

This article is being posted to warn crown heightsers to stay safe. Not to make us feel bad about the way some Bnei Brak extremists behave

" DINKINS IN DISGUISE "

UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE A MAYOR THAT IS FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF DINKINS. INSTEAD OF STOPPING THE LOOTERS,RIOTERS, AND DESTROYERS OF PROPERTY AND POLICE CARS, HE IS LETTING THEM “VENT”, AS DINKINS DID.

Totally agreed!
Guest
Totally agreed!

Diblasio is even more incompetent then dinkins, if only we had a meir like Giuliani in charge right now, Giuliani would have stoped these riots immediately!

Car

As well nothing should be left in your car overnight, these rioters are amazing at breaking into all the vehicles that they pass by at the best, and fully destroying some vehicles, Please my fellow residents of Kan Tsivah, Please leave NOTHING at all in your cars for the next week(s).

Murder is murder, regardless of who does it
Guest
Murder is murder, regardless of who does it

Why is it that when an “outsider” kills an African, there are riots? But, among themselves, the rate of same race murders are astronomic! But no rioting against themselves.
An African radio host said that if you are complaining about the way the police treat you, if you are killing and stealing from each other, you can’t expect the police or anyone to respect you.

Time to reunite the Patrols for once and for all with full Achdus protecting Crown Heights from what we are about to face.

Gate Locks

Gate Locks

BH many frum ch stores have gates, But at the same time there are many many Lubavitch owned stores here in ch that do Not have gates when closed, having their Glass Windows and Glass Doors exposed to any vandalism now, Last night the LA Frum community faced a modern day progrom, Almost every single storefront in the La Brea area of LA was broken into (thru the glass windows/doors) Robbed, Ransacked, Looted & destroyed, There was nothing that our dear brothers and sisters in la were able to do as they were heavily outnumbered, Please fellow ch residents, lets… Read more »

Spray this with smelly water

Spray this with smelly water

I think Israel developed a water cannon that sprays horrid smelling water. Once someone is sprayed with it, they smell awful for days. Spray the rioters and they will disperse

Useless riots
Guest
Useless riots

This is the third riot I’ve lived through and change does not seem to come fast enough for them. Maybe instead of destroying innocent people’s livelihood they can use some seichel, get organized and register to vote. They had my empathy but quickly lost it by harming the innocent. Because you hurt, does not give you the right to hurt others.

As a religious Jew who condones racism, I am terrified to join because I know we will eventually be used as a scapegoat to their pain.

with love we can win

with love we can win

teach them 7 mitzvos. let them discover the spirituality in their lives, no matter how poverty stricken they are, or how racist everyone else is.

Very interesting

Only a few months ago we were warned of a killer virus, so please stay home, but most thought it’s a joke & didn’t listen.
Now that the chayois are running around the streets, we are once again told to stay home….now people will listen because the danger can be seen with their eyes.

Now stop & think about covid19, it might not be seen but the danger is still there! U didnt want to stay home for the virus & protect others, now you will stay home without a choice!

We live in a selfish society
Guest
We live in a selfish society

Unfortunately,staying home was was mostly in order to prevent others from getting it, the ones who left were the ones who felt fine. When someone SEES physical danger that they personally are in, they are more willing to protect themselves. Go complain about that somewhere else, not on here

2 Locks on Store Gates

Regarding the Store Gates Locks, As well a lot of Stores everywhere (But focusing now on CH Stores) That do have a Roll Down Gate, There is space for 2 locks on the roll down gate, one lock on each side, But they only Lock 1 lock when closing, But with only 1 lock there is still a possibility for someone to pull the side that does not have the lock up a little and have someone else climb in thru the small opening on the bottom, bottom side that does not have the lock, Then break the window/door, i… Read more »

In the first case, let’s just say it: George Floyd was intentionally murdered at the knee of a racist cop with a history of excessive force. He was aided by three more officers, at least one of whom also had a long record of complaints for excessive force. The Black community has had to endure senseless violence at the hands of the police for far too long. I think this moment calls for compassion with their cause, and solidarity. How are we an example for the nations on how to be better if all we do is criticize and hide.… Read more »

you're forgetting a major point

Esther was placed in the palace, not for herself, but for her nation. Her religion was not going to be put against her once it was known. On the contrary, it was used in her favor. In Crown Heights today, our religion was and currently IS used against us. Our support for the black community has always backfired and we gained NOTHING by supporting them. We have been victims to their riots and it is only human to not be supportive to a community who hates our nation just as much as racists hate blacks. You can go ahead and… Read more »

It doesnt work that way

2 wrongs dont make a right. What happened to Mr. Floyd is inexcusable and anyone who wont say so has no sense of justice. And if you have no sense of justice for plony you wont have it for almony either. You’re just becoming less, and that’s not a Jew’s purpose in the world, and definitely not shining a light to others.
