    The day is fast approaching when you will dial 911 and get a busy signal. Stop relying on the police who are there only to ticket you and start learning how to defend yourself!
    When life and death is only a matter of seconds the police are only minutes away!

    If the criminal is no longer on the scene you don’t need to be afraid. If they are on the scene you may encounter hostility.. not only from the criminals. The police here often take the side of the perpetrators if they are on the scene and not obviously holding a weapon- and may give you a very hard time. Always make sure to call shmira or a family member after calling the police so you will not be alone. It doesn’t make sense but such is Crown Heights today.

    Heres my solution, buy a gun.. buy a gun for your family members.. teach them to shoot, teach the entire jewish community to shoot.. push them and help them get concealed weapons.

    Why ? simple… if an attacker tries to harm me or my family, i will tell him that he had better think twice or he will meet some .45 cal JHP..

    Or in extreme cases I will shoot.. my community will not be terrorized… I have taught over 100 hundred jews to shoot..

    Just 2 weeks ago I organized a concealed weapons course here in miamii and 10 people attended

    If your daughter can afford to lose $600 to a ganef, then I have kids on Shlichus who will be happy to receive such a nice donation & give her a tax deduction letter.

    I confused. The conclusion of this story is an assumption. I thought it was going to be that they didn’t let you report it. I don’t see why you won’t report it, do you think they know who you are?

    But your children are chickens. Fear of reprisal? Would you rather go to the slaughter like sheep?

    A few weeks ago some guy made anti semitic slurs to me. I came back later and took his car mirror as a souvenir.

    WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON COLIVE

    you must make a police report
    Guest
    you must make a police report

    Every month the police dept must give a report on how many crimes where committed in their community. The cops don’t want the number to be big because that makes them look bad. At the same time, if the report shows an increase in crime, more cops would be sent or and held accountable to protect that community. Please for the sake of CH make a police report and forget the fear. There is nothing to fear.

    Just because you are overly paranoid therefore crime pays?

    I disagree, I believe that you are a loser and because you are not reporting it and taking care of it more people will get hurt, you gotta be tough or you will get roughed up.

    Now pick yourself up and do what you gotta do.

    YOU ARE A LOSER

    YOU ARE A LOSER

    You are afraid of nothing, based on what exactly are you afraid of reprisals, there are so many people that have crimes committed to them that prosecute and lock up the criminal and nothing happens? You are just creating fear for no reason, imagine everybody was like you, there would be no cops, no judges, nobody who would stand up to criminals and the criminals would run the place, by not reporting this YOU ARE A PART OF THE PROBLEM!! And anyway the thief is probably a loser (like you) who is scared to confront people, that is why he… Read more »

    If you were so ‘brave’ (more like stupid) you would take the mirror WHILE he was there. YOU DIDNT! Because you were scared, nay? (Or Because you know life is more valuable than to risk it for some negative comments aimed at you), so you came back………………later.
    He said the comments TO YOU, AT YOU.
    YOU took the mirror…………only the car saw that.

    Food for thought………………….
    Just a bit 😉

    Thanks everyone for responding. Dear #4 #12 #15 #16 #17 #19 #22 #25 #26… “…Interviews with 109 intimidated witnesses and 11 criminal justice officials from the Brooklyn Criminal Court (New York) revealed that most witnesses were threatened more than once, often in their personal domains, and that 23 percent were re-victimized….” https://www.ncjrs.gov/App/publications/Abstract.aspx?id=89155 There are many other states with this problem. (The above NY.) Also…all the above commentators must be asleep…the victim’s name is on the card. Her husband didn’t want her to prosecute. Some of the comments, like #12, etc. are really ‘Sick.’ My daughter CANNOT afford to lose $600.… Read more »

    Forgot to ad one detail.
    The pre-Pesach auto burglary ended up with the state prosecuting the criminal. Since he used the credit card it’s called ‘grand larceny.’ Being a repeat offender (Who isn’t?) this will give him extra time in jail.

    Not Responsible

    Since when is a credit card holder responsible for $600 in fraudulent charges made after a card is stolen? Tell the credit card company what happened and you shouldn’t have to pay most if not all of it.

    Why be not nice! sounds like you are defending the criminal, the way you call him a loser. Its shocking!! He is absolutely right – it is the same in London – it’s useless going to the police. better idea to go to the bank or call credit card company and report it. will get the money back.

    #27 Very correct! #31 ‘Tov Meod!’ #30 True! My child disputed it. Why didn’t the store ask for identification? They should bear the loss. #33 Think…Just go on The Internet and find the address and phone (Public one.) quickly. Also age, etc. For a few dollars you can get a criminal background check and other info. (Public info.) We need more of a thinking public in Crown Heights. Also, no stating one’s name is very unhealthy…one doesn’t have to be responsible or think. This harms the person bec. he/she continues this behavior into their lives and can cause them problems.… Read more »

    One of the members of our ‘Vaad HaKahal’ was unhappy with this article because it might instigate people not to report crimes out of fear.
    I’ve reported crimes.
    One doesn’t always have to confront the criminal.
    Every report helps us.
