That Is Not So

Maybe he should try living here as a Jew and getting a small glimpse into our experience of living here as law abiding citizens with almost zero support from the ‘local precinct’. While there are a few that do rise above and are good and friendly neighbors, the Overwhelming majority are hostile and either actively harass/assault or clearly support it with looks, words, behaviors with their cars, and general lack of those certain subtle mannerisms that differentiate a peaceful citizen from a sociopath.

CH Askonim, Reachout to the top brass of NYPD
January 22, 2021 12:11 am

The Crime in CH is getting way out of hand recently, There is unfortunately almost every day violent crime in the CENTER of Crown Heights, Every week there is another Shooting incident in the Center of CH. Most smaller crimes like Package Thefts, many Car Break ins and other “Smaller Crimes” and Quality of life issues/crimes are way under reported with most not being reported at all, And everyone knows this. Yes BH for those that notice, the 71st Pct over the past few months has done a excellent job removing many illegal weapons off the streets, Thank You &… Read more »

I would suggest/demand you we should all reachout to All Frum Elected Officials, Community Leaders, Activist’s & Askonim that they should try to encourage the head brass of the NYPD to placing more Officers to CH. As well maybe if the new Commanding Officer can request from the NYPD to assign more police for CH. Here in CH we have the majority of our neighborhood residents, Appreciates the NYPD, Understands that in a normal society you need Law & Order, Respects the NYPD, Help’s the NYPD in apprehending criminals, & wants more NYPD Officers by our local Precinct’s to patrol the streets, Its just a… Read more »

re: defunding the police dept.
January 22, 2021 1:33 am

The new C.O. of the 71st precinct should be made aware of the attitude of the majority of the frum residents of Crown Heights: WE ARE NOT IN FAVOR OF “DEFUNDING THE POLICE DEPT.” To us it’s a code phrase for weakening the police dept., and that should not be allowed to happen. Reallocated funds should come from other areas of government. They should not be coming from the dept. most responsible for keeping our streets safe. You want to beautify the parks or expand some drug rehab programs? Great! Close down some less than successful programs – an HONEST… Read more »

How can they stop crime when they are busy giving out hatzalah members tickets i was standing in front off 770 2 weeks ago when hatzoloh came to help our people and was given a ticket right in front of all of us and when we asked why the officer told us cause he’s parked in a illegal spot. Now does that sound like the correct thing to do ???

It is defunding the police!
January 24, 2021 8:35 am

The BLM that got it started says so. So do the liberal politicians that are ordering it to be done. While getting guns out of the hands of criminals is a great thing, I find that the rhetoric is usually just a code for taking them away from citizens who want them for self-defense FROM the criminals. If Yankel Rosenbaum had a gun, he’d probably still be alive today. The criminals still commit crimes, even without guns. Instead of focusing on the guns, they should focus on the crimes and those who perpetrate them and get the criminals off the… Read more »
