Time for the Jews not to be victims any longer.

It is time for a war to commence. The Jews need to be less frightened, and more aggressive when it comes to these animals.

DeblAssio, is single handedly destroying the city.
If you have a nickel, he wants to take it from you. If you have a dollar he wants to put you in jail.
This man has emboldened criminals to freely roam the city and do as they please while the cops have their hands tied behind their back. They have not collected any of the video footage available on the shooting that took place on Brooklyn Ave. They are doing nothing.

It’s the fact that the police would side with them if a Jew defended himself, that makes it more complicated.

As I once told my son, nothing good happens when you are roaming the streets after midnight. Never mind 3:55 am. Did the person who was assaulted in front of his house not know what’s going on in his neighbourhood? Of course one should be able to stand outside in front of one’s house and talk on the phone. But if he’s even slightly aware of what’s happening, he should also know that he was inviting trouble. I’m hoping it’s someone not mature enough to have figured this out. Otherwise, those living in CH need to a refresher course in… Read more »

When I was reading the article above I was thinking – probably this time, because it’s a male and in front of his own house, no one is going to have (what I consider to be) the ridiculous position that this person was somehow inviting being assaulted, and accepting the notion of being assaulted as a default.
And whaddya know, here’s this person insinuating a possibility that there’s room for possible critical judgment on someone talking on a phone in front of their house.
That’s quite the galus mentality.

did you consider that perhaps the victim had just returned from somewhere? or was maybe on the way to go somewhere? or maybe even tending to an important matter on the phone not wanting to wake ppl in his house?

yes we must be vigilant, always being mindful of our surroundings but lets not blame the VICTIM! lest we become hermits and hide in our homes……

you know some work late hours or start very early

you know some work late hours or start very early

Phone snatching happens everywhere at all times of day and night. Smart people are aware of their surroundings and guard their posessions. It is common sense to not flash money, to not leave anything important or valuable in plain sight or where it can be easily accessed. If you have to use a phone in public pay attention to your surroundings and go to a sheltered area if neccessary. Walk confidetially even if you are unsure where you are going.

Maybe the guy is a smoker and he went out to have a cigarette because they dont want him to smoke in the house. and while he was out he got a phone call or he called someone, whatever
and the reason is he has the right to stand in front of his house without getting attacked, they need to catch these guys but if they do they will probably get a slap on the wrist and be out the next day,

Blame the jungle animals, not the residents of Crown Heights.

Yet it wasn't a 'phone snatch' was it?

The man was assaulted and then robbed. On a block where 99% of the residents are Jewish. I guess they just happened to be strolling down that particular block, right?
