Police wouldnt do anything even if they showed up because they would not want to stir up anything by making out they are defending white jews. No bail law means no one could be arrested and stay in jail

cops

I’m sure a white supremacist is the person behind this, definitely not a black person. This just goes to show that we need less police, as the police presence clearly encourage white people and their racist ways!

This goes to show nothing except that hate lives on. It does not define the hate monger.

Wow. Why is this newsworthy. It’s chalk. There are bad people in the world, also kids do stupid things. Bad kids do really stupid things.

It’s chalk.

Chalk.

free speech

Where is the legal line drawn re hate and incitement and free speech?

Someone could have added some words to modify what was written on the floor. ex: Hitler is ___ great ____ _____.

This is an opinion. why is someone else’s opinion an issue?

Defacing public property IS a crime. Even if it said something you liked.

We say Haman just so that we can drown out his name with noise. Maybe writing in chalk on sidewalk is similar – wiping his name away.

Do police really have to spend their time coming for this?

Yes they do

Get it?

There is no line between hatred and free speech

All speech is equally protected, whether it’s loving or hateful. All laws must be viewpoint neutral.

Incitement is a different matter, but “Hitler is great” is not incitement. Even “Kill the Jews” is not incitement, unless it is BOTH subjectively intended AND objectively likely that whoever reads it will IMMEDIATELY commit a crime, blindly obeying the instruction without even thinking about it and making their own decision. All three of these elements are necessary, or it is simply not incitement.

Pronunciation

It’s pronounced: Black lives matter

It can’t be ignored

They all started with labels, names and then we had holocaust so never again. We can’t be tolerant to this
U should write on it that he targeted not only Jews

Here’s what you do: Insert an ‘A’ between the second and third words. Then add ‘Big Loser’ to the end of the sentence. Hint: Neon Pink chalk works really well.

Hitler hated blacks. Jews have always stood by blacks for justice and equality and for them to spitback in our face is a disgrace. My Jewish brothers and sisters, wake up….we as a people are hated. The hatred defies logic. No matter what we do, the hatred, shows itself time and again. Let’s remember we must continue to act with dignity and respect to all, but we must not stick our head in the sand thinking a wave of violence cannot hit our communities. We must prepare and do everything to fight back. Please reply with constructive ideas how we… Read more »

Increase the awareness and observance of the 7 Mitzvos bnai Noach, and implement a Moment of Silence in the public schools.

Hitler may have hated blacks
July 21, 2020 8:32 am

But there were black people in Germany and they were not persecuted at all. There were even black members of the Nazi party.

Hitler hated anyone who wasnt of perfect aryan blood, including blacks, muslims, gypsies, disabled and handicapped ppl and jews

Police should come for graffiti?!
July 21, 2020 8:35 am

The city is officially allowing giant graffiti on Fifth Avenue, and it’s not allowing the police to enforce the laws against graffiti when it says “black lives matter” or “F the police” or things like that, so how can they enforce the law just because it says something we don’t like? We have freedom of speech in this country, so the government can’t discriminate between different opinions. If some graffiti is tolerated then all must be tolerated. Otherwise you’re punishing an opinion.

I was told that the Rebbe said that we should say good morning to our neighbors.

expectation?
July 21, 2020 9:16 am

if the “higher ups” won’t let the police arrest violent criminals and are defunding them, in all reality why would the police do anything about anything and certainly not for what they feel is just scribble on the ground?

ADL
July 21, 2020 10:54 am

Please leave the ADL out of this. They still support Sharpton and are not helpful.

When will the people of Crown Heights wake up?

Idea

Are there Video Cameras on the houses in front to see who wrote it? And Crime is rising in every category daily, The streets are not safe, Each day has more and more shootings in NYC & in Brooklyn, There are 2 types of Neighborhoods throughout NYC. One type (which is the majority) has the majority of their neighborhood’s residents want to Defund & even Abolish the NYPD, They have No respect for law & order, They want lawlessness & crime, They have No respect for the brave NYPD that are risking their own lives to try to keep them… Read more »
