This is a very important action and will hopefully prevent future bullying of law abiding citizens- by those who are supposed to protect the public! I know there are decent, admirable police out there because I’ve met them

Couldnt you find a better lawyer than the guy from the director of the ACLU. He is a good lawyer, but you dont have to help with his other motives

…and crime continues to grow in this neighborhood. I understand that the police do try to catch the thieves, muggers, and other criminals that are striking in our area with alarming frequency but not enough is being done. We are not adequately protected. I am terrified to go out. Two weeks ago my nephew got hurt, last week- a neighbor, and these boys are getting a ticket …for what? Perhaps, if we organized groups such as these guys- 3 or 4 at each corner each night, crime would go down- as the streets would be fuller and the criminals might… Read more »

These guys could just show up in court and have it dismissed and it will be over for them but they decided to go and fight for other people as well, for us, the rest of the community these boys deserve our utmost respect and cooperation if we can.

Yeah ok.

Yeah ok.

I heard a different story. That they were making a lot of noise and were making fun of the cops from across the street.

Well you must have heard wrong, since I was a witness to the scene. As well as the investigative reporter seeing a different picture as well. And if you see the link to the video in comment 4, he did a great job of portraying the truthful story.

What are they doing standing around outside anyway? They should be inside learning. It’s Hashgacha Pratis that they were ticketed. It’s Hashem’s way of telling them to go inside and learn. The fact they they are now blowing this whole incident out of proportion and suing is simply their method of finding another way to waste time. They should just accept Hashem’s will and do what they are really meant to be doing; learning Torah.

You are so close minded – the OPPOSITE of a true Chabadnik.
You probably shouldn’t be on the internet posting, because you are not doing Hashem’s will right now! You should be learning Torah. Get off the internet!

Hashgacha protis?!

Hashgacha protis?!

To comment 13: of course its HP. But how do you know why it happened? How can you claim it happened because they should have been inside learning? And how do you know they weren’t taking a break from shteiging?! And while you are judging, maybe it happened so they could take legal action in order to protect other citizens (like you)

I’m sure if you were the one that was ticketed for merely standing outside with some friends and having quiet conversation you would have a different perspective to this story. You need to open up your eyes and see the light. A great time to start that would be on Chanukah.

P.S. you need to stop trying to sound like a ‘Snag’. You don’t sound cool. Wana sound cool? Speak like a Chossid.

Gut gezukt. And we need to show appreciation for these men who are doing something with mesiras nefesh to help the community. These kind of things need to be addressed in order to stop them from getting worse.

What’s with the Yiddish man? If you can read English why can’t you write? This is America. We speak English in this country.

What part of what #11 said has to do with intelligence? all he/she said was that he/she heard a different story. Hearing a story does not require a lot of brain power unless it is a very detail-oriented story.

There is absolutely no problem with commenting in Yiddish. If you can’t understand I would be glad to translate, as I do understand.
