    That is more than just upsetting, it's frightening,

    If Rebbitzin Fink hadn’t had the presence of mind to call 911 immediately who knows how far this might have gone, Chas V’sholem. This guy presents a danger to any religiously attired Jew that might need to travel through that area. And apparently he has someone to cover up for his terrorism at his base also.

    Perhaps Rabbi Fink can now give talks and explains what it feels like for black people every time they are pulled over

    Assuming the recital of facts is correct, what made Hikind jump to the conclusion that antisemitism played any role in this incident? “The Finks mode of dress made it clear that they were Hassidic Jews”; true enough but how is it relevant? This sounds exactly like every time something happens to a black person and he immediately assumes it was because he’s black. cf Michael Bennett. “It would be difficult to mistake the Fink family for people who might pose a danger to police officers”. What do you think people who might pose a danger to police officers look like?

    I’m not 100% sure what they look like (although I can try and imagine) but definitely not like a family of four chaidic Jews…

    its a chutzpah!

    cops think they could do what ever they want just because..!
    what they did was totaly illegal! they have no right to touch you or your car without an official reason!
    next time a cop randomly pulls you over and asks for your id ask him back what is his id and badge number! and ask him why u r being detained!
    dont just let them control u for no reason!

    Whoever you are, I am very impressed! I am not black, but I appreciate the empathy and depth of thought in your comment. Thank you.

    But Nazis began by arresting Jews for no reason. The Jews kept waiting for it to pass…. One incident after another…then goodbye government and hello Gestapo. Now this sounds a bit dramatic but if you don’t nip it in the bud it can grow. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. If a black family was pulled over and held at gunpoint, the city would be in flames by now anti white supremacist cops riots… Let’s make sure we seek proper justice. Not through rioting, but we must speak out. An outcry is necessary. Being submissive didn’t work in Germany. We need faith… Read more »

    if mrs fink called 911 it is because she knew they were not guilty of anything otherwise she knew theres nothing to call for
    please no. 2 and 3 take the story as it is instead of comparing now to the black person, o my ,

    They are well respected people in their community. Can there be any justification? Really??

    The Yidden are big time in denial!
    Spitting nonsense and stupidity out of their brains
    You are 100% unfortunately right!
    But there will be no holocaust
    There will be MOSHIACH!

    Wake up peeps!

    Finally an outcry over police misconduct. But for some reason when it happens to a black person you all say it’s their fault somehow. Smh…

    Outrage but no surprise

    All the evils are coming to the top now before Moshiach. Anti-semitism is on the rise and it is , no doubt, that this was an anti-semitic incident. Vermont – can you get any more left than that?

    You’re a Jew. Defend your own people. We have enough work to do with our own people. Use your energy to improve the lives of religious Hasidic Jews instead of black people. The blacks have enough on their side.

    TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUM…wait did these really happen?

    Trump good everyone else bad. Trump can do no wrong. NOT denouncing blatant anti semitic groups quickly enough or strongly enough does no damage see?

    And enough excuses when anti semitic incidents happen, I agree get out of your silly denial!

    Open your eyes Yidden of America, this is only one incident of many.

    Really? Attacking Hikind for standing up to a clearly anti semitic action? All politics aside, but are you actually defending the fact that this was not a biased episode? What are you afraid of when you see a Chassidishe family with little kids in the car that prompts you to arrest the entire family? Getting a matzoh ball thrown at your direction?

    Wow

    That image of that state trooper/car. Mamesh looks like an image of “ba lesaten lo’ baderech”. Imagine pulling up to the stop sign with that thing in front of you in the middle of nowhere..sends chills

    Huh?
    Guest
    Huh?

    “Even” if the driver was weaving, was drunk, and was speeding, what crime did the 3 passengers commit?
    Something smells here, and I think it’s the trooper!

    THAT'S ILEGAL IN AUSTRALIA!!

    THAT'S ILEGAL IN AUSTRALIA!!

    I live in Melbourne, Australia, and officers in the Victoria Police (the state of Victoria’s police force) rarely draw their guns. I’ve spoken to police officers and one sais that he’d only drawn his gun once; when he didn’t know whether or not a guy had a weapon. I think that police officer is the drunk one, not Rabbi Fink.

    Dispicable

    This is the most outrageous unacceptable incident.
    To #10. It is irrelevant whether they are well respected or not, totally irrelevant.
    Something like this should never happen to anyone regardless of who they are.

    #2 wrong about racial profiling

    #2 wrong about racial profiling

    You are wrong. the reason that blacks get pulled over often is simply because they are more criminal., 50% of crime is committed by 13% percent of the populations. Yechi hamelech moshiach now

    Terrifying ordeal for the family,

    what makes you think rabbi fink is not sympathetic to innocent people getting pulled over for nothing be they blacks, jews, or others?
    methinks i detect a slight whiff of ” the jews are to blame for my problems” attitude in your statement, and isn’t that, too, discriminatory?

    They, the entire family, were subjected to rough man handling

    and handcuffing under gunpoint. What might have been his ulterior motive, can you maybe imagine??

    Trump has nothing to do with this. Do you really think this cop would not have done this to this family if Hilliary was in office instead of Trump? Do you really think there were no antisemitic cops when Obama was in office? You obviously have an agenda against Trump as if the Democrats who had strongly attacked Sarah Palin for having in Israeli flag pin in her office as a ‘shill for Israel’ are not viciously antisemitic. Or how about Hilliary who said a curse word against Jews and then complained ‘they didn’t even vote for us’. She also… Read more »
