We need more dinners and photo ops with community leaders and political persons together. That should fix all this

Absolutely! Also find out how many times the thug has been previously arrested and present him with an achievement award at the event because you know equity. I think if the regime frees a couple of the flag waving Jan6ers, then maybe they might just find some space in jail for this peaceful protester trying to get reparations from an oppressive stranger walking past him and minding his own business. /s As my uneducated grandma would say “When your kind to the cruel you’re cruel to the kind”. Either way, the policies of the politicians are responsible for these assaults… Read more »

Having read the previous 3 comments to your comment. I agree. I however wouldn’t be so king with my wording. Thing is…… there aren’t any community leaders community activists community council representatives coming out saying anything. Hmmm. Let’s try to figure out why…… Perhaps their busy with their upcoming political get together, Photo op, or to be honestly blunt. Deep down they don’t really care. As the politicians in Washington or Albany. These little incidents won’t bring the shekel fame or boost their geshultine egos,,,, so why ! Oh yes I must be honest they will say something when a… Read more »

Now that NYS was forced to issue carry licenses, I hope every one gets a gun for protection. Train well, and carry it everywhere. Next time you’re attacked: use it for self defense

Learn the laws first or you will wind up in prison with a very expensive defense bill and civil lawsuit.

You cannot just shoot somebody because they attack you–like it or not you must learn the local laws if you are going to carry a firearm. You stand to lose EVERYTHING if you mess up.

You must be able to articulate why you were in fear of losing your life or suffering severe bodily injury.

Also… if you carry a firearm, you must obtain separate concealed carry liability insurance to help with ball, attorney’s fees, defense, etc. It’s available in most states except NEW YORK DOESN’T ALLOW IT!!!

Did you say prison ??

Because the system is backwards. I agree 1000% with carrying a firearm. The issue is that the laws and lawlessness are even moreso against the person who wants to go about living a peaceful existence. I do hope that once CCW is more common the criminals will think more than twice about attacking a seemingly easy target.

This is why you never threaten with a gun–pull it only if you need to use it.

If the victim was knocked to the ground and the potential was there for the attacker to take the weapon, it could be considered a justified self-defense shooting.

To pull out a gun and wave it or threaten with it goes against all concealed carry training. The gun is the last resort against an imminent threat of death or grave bodily harm.

please more info about the man that was attacked
how is he

Don’t bother saying ‘unprovoked’, it never is. They have been taught that there are no serious consequences. That’s why the upcoming elections are so important. It won’t be this way for much longer.

Learn the local laws regarding self defense.

YOU could wind up in jail for defending yourself. Make absolutely certain you are in the right and be sure the attacker doesn’t take it off of you.

Proud to be who they are and never trying to hide. They should all carry some form of protection. And this story should be sent to Fox News. Why shouldn’t the world know exactly what is and has been going on in crown heights.

August 23, 2022 12:30 pm

This will stop when we learn to defend ourselves. These criminals will get a bullet and the word will get out that Jewish blood is not cheap.. Until then, maybe try and get the CHJCC to ask the PO to put more officers on the streets. Just until we can get our own carry permits.

not in this case, no, but if you heard that someone shot up a shul or committed a terrorist attack against Jews in America, you know good and well what the skin color is and which party he is associated it with. Nice try.

Do you really want to start going over all the terrorist attacks that have happened in America by which skin color and political party? If you have even a shred of knowledge of history and current events, you would know that it’s heavily one sided. But of course, that’s not what you will see Fox News or Breitbart.

Yes, as a matter of fact

Let’s do that. Then scale it by the sizes of the respective populations (there are about six times as many whites as blacks in this country), and then see which skin color and which political party has the greater number. I have a feeling it won’t be what you expect.

So the desire to be able to walk in the street without being viciously attacked is “right wing?”

The desire to shoot someone is “right wing,” which is synonymous with insane.

Guns are never the answer. Violence is never the answer.

Extremist republicans and their obsession with the NRA is scary in itself, but when you mix that in with their bizarre “pro-life” propaganda it really becomes a matter of total hypocrisy.

It’s okay to support the NRA and kill human beings, but when women want autonomy over our own bodies it all the sudden becomes murder. Funny how that works.

There’s no “desire to shoot someone”; there’s a desire to live in peace. You’re confusing the means with the end.

And are you seriously comparing an unborn baby to a criminal?

No comparison whatsoever

A criminal has a family and friends and loved ones, dreams and goals, a history and a future, a neshama, and the ability and the right to do teshuva.

A group of cells is literally just a group of cells.

Great call pointing that out!

What we really need is to restore the value of Jewish blood, looking “cheap” I agree with the earlier comment about Jews getting pushed around and people thinking Jews are this or that it might be a good opportunity now to line up a couple of Chabadniks who have guard cards and are licensed to carry in New York City with a conceal permit and line them up all the way from Kingston and empire all the way up to Kingston and Eastern parkway or at least to Kingston and Union where the incident occurred. when/if these people see Jews… Read more »

The assumption is that the perpetrator is angry, crazy, unbalanced, anti-semite, etc., but maybe he is getting paid to assault a Yid. Maybe there are people giving sums of cash to desperate men in exchange for assaulting us. To brush off individuals as sick, as animals seems too easy
