Please learn your lesson already

If you cannot defend yourself stop walking alone at night. I know it’s not right you should be able to walk alone at night & not get attacked but unfortunately that’s just not the world we live in. So either learn how to defend yourself or don’t walk alone at night. Very simple. I don’t know how this is still happening. After 2 years of constent attacks you all should learn your lesson already stop playing games your making us look week & animals go after the week

Ya they should continue to walk the streets alone & continue to get beat up very smart. Weather this is my son or not doesn’t make a difference how I would react. Because what I wrote isn’t emotional it’s simply logical. If you don’t know how to defend yourself you have no business walking alone at night when there are gangs of black teens roaming the streets

You say it’s very normal & expected to be walking around at that time. Well these aren’t normal circumstances & the only thing to be expected is to probably get attacked because this has only been happening none stop for years already so you can all just continue doing what you have been doing for years & keep getting attacked or you can change your life style of walking alone not knowing anything about self defense & continue getting attacked your choice

1st rule of self defence
Reply to  Wow your so smart!!!
December 31, 2019 4:51 pm

1st rule know when to run. In self defence you should always avoid the situation whether that means dont walk alone or to run. Fighting back aint always the answer. There are 6 against 1 and if you start fighting back it will become more vicious. At this stage its small one or two hit attacks if you fight back tbey will fight more and will also start using weapons if you over power them. Which will mean deaths rather then attacks. My suggestion is to walk in numbers like already stated no need for self defence classes. They are… Read more »

The answer isn’t to stay off the streets at night or walk in groups! The answer is to meet force with overwhelming force. Get a gun, get trained, and get over your pitiful cowardly approach to hostility.

You seem to be mature enough to make this persons comment into an attack on itself. You write as if you’re solving the problem. People can post difference of opinion. That doesn’t mean you should knock them down (Hence the attack of this article) He has a valid point. People should walk in groups until this subsides (hopefully sooner than later). If you want to walk alone, then that’s your right. I hope you know self defence. Good Luck

just by saying it your tolerating the behaviour of these group of blacks. and second even if he could defend himself hes going up against a few of them not just one. it’s a no win situation. and third these attacks have been happening in broad daylight. your outlook on this is appalling. we need to start fighting back!!! it’s only out of control because they’re getting away with it. but our community is so devided and if we don’t come together to stand up to this it’s scary to think what will happen!

Honest question. If there are gangs of black teens roaming the streets what exactly is your plan when you walk alone at night and you come across these groups of teens? Do you have a plan? Do you have a way to defend yourself? if not then what in the world are you doing walking alone what do you expect to happen after years of people constantly getting attacked. Honestly it’s time to change your life style and learn your lesson already. If the police can’t defend you time to learn how to defend yourself. KILL OR BE KILLED

December 30, 2019 11:11 pm

But the laws in NY prohibit being armed. And we know from the grand old history in Crown Heights that the police (here) are more likely to go after a Jew who counter attacks a perpetrator than after the perpetrator themselves. Since you mention a plan- what do YOU think the plan should be for a young man walking to shul at 6 pm, or a young lady walking home from the subway after work etc?

it isn’t completely impossible to get a license to carry a firearm in NY.
a few members of the community should start carrying; hopefully, get attacked; and legally use their weapon. that will be the last of the attacks against our community. Don’t get me wrong. they’ll riot. The media will call us racist, and we might lose some sympathy from some people (ppl tend to hate it when victims stand up for themselves. see Isreal), but at the end of it all, they will stop attacking us because they will fear for their lives.

Sometimes it’s best to fight back (and learn know how to). Sometimes it’s best to only walk in groups. Sometimes it best to proactively organize a vigilante group to exact street justice. Sometimes it’s best to organize cross culture education. Sometimes it’s best to reach out to other cultures in the same environment to create cooperative responsiveness and united front. Sometimes it best to run away. Sometimes it’s best to carry a weapon and use it. Rarely is it best to be an armchair judge and dictator.

We need to arm ourselves.

At a minimum, Pepper Spray is legal in NY (for 18 and older), carry one, and the next time one of these thugs thinks it’ll be amusing to pick on us give him a faceful of pain.

The Police are not sending a constructive message
December 31, 2019 3:01 pm

So many police officers, particularly black, in the area are personally ok with attacks on Jewish (or white people) in general. I’ve seen and heard so much to verify this. The criminals get this message loud and clear and that’s where all of this casual unpunished violence starts.

The D.A.D. is a perfect non-lethal weapon you can carry. Besides being military grade OC it has a super bright flash and transmits your location and a message you’re in trouble. In the app. you can put phone numbers of people you want to notify including 911. Go online to access it and tell Mike that Norm G. sent you. If you know your torah you know it wasn’t until it looked like the Jews would fail that Hashem stepped in. In other words, take some responsibility to protect yourself and if needed Hashem will fill in the blanks! Order… Read more »
