Police were justified!
December 10, 2014 4:44 am

After the Crown Heights riots the Rebbe said that the area should be protected by ARMED guards!
B H that the police were there and did the right thing.
How dare the Tzfatim yell, Don’t shoot. Are they nuts.

shfichas domim

When Anash will stop supporting the ‘shfichas domim’ of our very own through the horrible “motzei shem ra” website, I’m sure the Aibershter will give more protection. Not that chv we shouldn’t have protection until then but the terrible sinas chinam needs to stop.

Stop looking for who to blame and look inside YOURSELVES. Baal Shem Tov taught that from everything that happens we can learn something in avodas Hashem. Maybe WE have to do something? maybe WE have to grow in a certain area? Erev Yud Tes Kislev, Chassidim – let’s do better! Especially with achdus

To #5 the. Yiddish was telling the cop not to shoot per video not setting him up to be shot

The most shocking point....
December 9, 2014 3:18 pm

The doors of 770 are unlocked 24/7. Why isn’t there already an armed security guard posted at the front door of 770 24/7, for the past few years???
In today’s climate, I find this shocking.

Agree with #9

How many times have I heard totally negative things said about “Tzfatim”. a negative name for Israeli bochurim. As though they were not even yidden! Yes, ahavas chinam is definitely in order. and let’s hope the cop does not have a hard time for doing his job properly.

How are we thanking the police?
December 9, 2014 2:34 pm

The police in our neighborhood are patrolling for our safety and put themselves on the line to protect other individuals last night, are we doing anything to thank them?

December 9, 2014 2:14 pm

#12 should be taken out.
RIGHT AND WRONG AND POINTS TAKEN become invalid when insults are the basis of the message. This is not the Jewish way. Educate someone who doesnt have the right message, or whatever, but no insults. At a time like this, we can’t afford ourselves to rely on negativity and insults and hurting ways. This is not the midah of a yid. Shame on you.

should be installed unnoticed and go off when somone is carrying a heavey mertal item

Gaboim are also at fault
December 9, 2014 1:08 pm

There is no reason to automatically shut the lights at 12 midnight. Shutting lights is a security breach and is an announcement and a CALL for all Tefilin – Ganovim I’m and all other criminals to feel safe and comfortable in the relative darkness to do, what they do best during darkness. The ABC of security to leave the lights on to deter criminals. Shutting the lights is SO stupid, especially since the Goyim start cleaning 770 at 2:30 am every night so what do the Gaboim gain by shutting the lights for 2.5 hours out of every day, except… Read more »

just me to #7
December 9, 2014 1:07 pm

you are a fool – the cops did great last night – what did you do today to make the world better?

December 9, 2014 12:35 pm

was a police car in front of 770 at that hour???

Responding to the Chochom? # 7
December 9, 2014 12:14 pm

THIS IS WHAT YOU WROTE. just talk If the police would have been stationed in the front of 770 ,and not sleeping in a command post this would never of happened Now I ask you; How ungrateful can one be? How many other institutions have a 24 hour post? What would have happened R”L if the police would not have been in so close proximity? This Police Officer, who with G-d’s help and the Rebbes brocho, avoided a greater tragedy, is now in for a very hard time. And all that you have said is “NIVUL PEH”, you kofu-tovah…….

From Israel Hatzola:
URGENT: Public asked to Daven for Levy Yitzchok Ben Reizel wounded in todays stabbing attack at Chabad HQ in Brooklyn, now in critical condition,

no police
December 9, 2014 11:43 am

For the 1st time ever we can legally protect ourselves.
. We should have our own protection, and lawyers advicing
us what are our rights. The goyem would respect if we can legally, and morally protect our selves, with power and stregnth

while natural protective means are important...
December 9, 2014 11:40 am

Supernatural protective means are even more important, like checking tefillin and mezuzot, as well as getting all yidden on board with being observant. Ahavat-Israel!!!!! Achdut!!! Stopping with the cursed machloiket!!!! Letting down pride and being humble and respecting each other. Let’s all be one group of one family and get along. We have Moshiach as our Redeemer.

December 9, 2014 11:34 am

This will increase police, and therefore ticket, presence in Crown Heights for a few weeks.

Then things will get back to before.e.. repeat etc v’dal.

just talk

If the police would have been stationed in the front of 770 ,and not sleeping in a command post this would never of happened

December 9, 2014 11:23 am

Like I have been saying the whole time………..Maybe now the frum community will pay attention!!!!! To # 3.. Asides from Hashem alone YOU are your own best protection! Get a concerted effort together to change the INSANE Concealed Carry Laws of NYC, get a gun and learn how to use it and start protecting yourself and you community!!!! To # 5.. A .22 is a child’s toy, it’s what my 7 year old learned to shoot with…. A 9mm at the very least!! (.40, .45 or .357 preferably). This guy probably wouldn’t have had a chance to get the knife… Read more »

it's the white Jews fault
December 9, 2014 10:38 am

why didn’t the white Jew take pity on an obviously deranged black man move out of the way and call for help? HUH? because the Jew was inviting the problem so he can have an excuse to have the black man shot dead!!! NO?

no peace no justice — or was it, no justice no peace.
Every Jew a 22 .

Anybody hurt would be infortunate but ....
December 9, 2014 10:31 am

It’s funny that a crazy person didn’t try to kill anybody else but a Yid ! I believe that it’ss because they are being so brained wash about us ! He could of turn to another person in a street or another religious place but he went to 770 !

Lets hope he really means business
December 9, 2014 10:17 am

We need 24 hour police protection, serious protection, in front of the doors of 770. How many more deranged nuts are out there???

May he have a total refuah shleima
December 9, 2014 10:07 am
i hope

i hope that is what deblasio meant
