    Action has to be taken asap. This has become a joke to the blacks. Oh look I can punch this white person & run away & I will get away with it because no one says boo. Where is the outcry??? This is NOT acceptable or ok!!!!

    We need the smiling pictures from our activists and representatives. We don’t need action, we photo ops in restaurants, that’s why this is happening every day!!!! More pictures, unbelievable.

    As I said before if you mace/pepper spray them they will not do this to people. Bad mezzuzot and tiffilin we lose a big shmirah for out bodies and our homes. The fear of a Jew is lost. Yes, I will blame the bad STaM for all this. The muggings and home fires that is going on is crazy. Why is the CH council asleep at the wheel. This better get adressed so no one get really hurt G-d forbid. Two folks punched in one week?!

    Trust me the Cops are not at all intimidated and their hearts are not frozen with fear when they see our short and out of shape activists LOL. They do strike fear in the hearts of man and cops LOL. We need lawyers and a few with big mouths to get these cops moving. A goy will not help a Jew unless they fear loss of their job, lawsuit or other problems. We do not have thugs with bowties like the black muslims but we can bring in tough lawyer to these meetings and that will light a match under… Read more »

    Analysis of a dysfunctional neighborhood

    12 minutes in a stalled car: I was trying to move my car before alternate side began but I could not because it stalled for a few minutes and remained in it’s parking place on the wrong side. Here’s what followed: 2 minutes later another car double parked just diagonally ahead of mine so passing cars had to turn a little in order to pass it. I indicated to the driver in the double parked car that my car was stalled but he refused to move forward so that cars could more easily pass. In the next few minutes most… Read more »

    What’s going on???

    There’s a pattern here

    There must be someone inciting these people to violence

    Police must get to the source

    Demonstration anyone?

    Demonstration anyone?

    Our “leaders” are never seen demanding the apprehension and conviction of the thugs.
    Show your grit.
    Show your anger. Call in the guardian angels. They did a great job years ago. We need them again.
    Better yet our own shmira/shomrim need to expand their ranks.
    Find these bast***s and accidentally on purpose bag then while exercising a citizens’ arrest.
    Time for elections for real leaders who will make a change interesting of stupid photo ops.

    We need actions, not pictures in restaurants smiling. Enough of the same people, we have to realize our representative and activists don’t care. New caring people should represent us

    The best action is preventative action.

    The best action is preventative action.

    No one does anything deliberately, without first having an idea to do it. The ideas come from anti-Semitic websites and blogs. We need people to refute the false claims the anti-Semites make about Jews which they do on thousands of blogs all over the internet, and no one responds to their claims that Talmud says you can lie to and cheat “the Goyem” and that Jews supposedly perform ritual sacrifice of children and so many other evil things they say about Jews. If someone who does not know any better hears this garbage, repeatedly with no one ever refuting it,… Read more »

    Learn your lesson already!!!! What a joke you people are constantly getting attacked & yet nothing is changing no one is doing anything about it no one fights back. Same thing in Israel if you don’t fight back the bully will keep coming after you. When you fight back they will eventually stop. Let’s stop being victims & start doing something about this it’s been happening for years & it will continue to happen if no one does anything about it.

    Trading insults, and inciting more hatred and violence against another group won’t get you anywhere. But neither will pandering to wrongdoers. Evidently, there are faults on both sides – you get what you give.

    ‘Faults on both sides’? How exactly is a man walking over to a girl, a complete stranger and committing acts of violence ‘faults on both sides’? I dion’t know who YOU are representing but My community has put up with way too many acts of violence and the perpetrators until now do NOT ‘get what THEY give’. It’s time for that to change. Clearly you do not mean this community well.

    First woman must dress tznyos and not walk around with shirt skirts. There is a complete dangerous epidemic among women under 30 not dressing as Jews should. We must get our leaders to speak out. Lighting candles is not enough. Don’t think anti Semitism is an accident. It’s a wake up call. On colleges today there is so much intermarriage that the sudden escalation of antisemitism on campus is coming for a reason. If we would be real yidden the world would respect us. Time to be real. Men study more and women start incorporating Tzneius.

    Is it still surprising to you, cuz I don’t even live in Crown Heights yet I’m used to seeing this on COL. Can you please, for yourself and visitors…. GET SECURITY!? I think there should be a police/shomrim guy/dude/man on every corner-i mean EVERY SINGLE corner in Crown Heights! I think it would help A LOT. Please try your best to make it happen, I think it would make a great improvement.

    And yidden were the ones beating up black people every other day, half this neighborhood would be set on fire with rioting by now. It’s happening because they’re getting away with it with no consequences.

    There are blacks who are friendly and helpful. It helps to show no fear, to be alert awake and never deferential but always open minded [northern whites walk on the right hand side of the sidewalk, like cars on the street, but as part of the southern chivalry ethic important people like rabbis walk on the inside of the sidewalk] and if you are not speaking words of Torah, at least indicate that you are a “standup guy”. Very important to doing mivtzoim both for Jews and for bnei Noach, to be makdim sholom to those whom you are acquainted… Read more »

    Stop hiding this outrage in the closet!

    A COMPLETE HISTORY of the continued, almost constant, criminal acts against Jews in Crown Heights over the past 30 to 40 years must be reported and widely publicized – including to other parts of the Jewish world. I know Jews from Manhattan who did not have a clue that this has been going on! Even just to Yeshivaworld will bring this important information to a huge part of the Jewish world. This unacceptable and disgusting history has been a well kept secret within the community which only enables the criminals and those who are meant to ‘serve and protect’. AS… Read more »

    If you want a demonstration you need people who will get off their tucheses and actually go outside and be united. More than that however, you also need a demonstration leader. I suspect there’s no shortage of people who would go out into the street en masse, just put pass out fliers in Hebrew and French through 770, all the buchorim will join. That’s only half the battle though, you need to have organization, a plan of where you’re going to march to/demonstrate at, and a clear demand for what it is that you want. Any ideas? Maybe organize and… Read more »

    Organize and protest to be in front of the 71st precinct and tip off the non-Jewish media for publicity.

    Demand more freedom for civilians to be able to protect themselves. Demand they actually grant citizens’ requests for licences to carry firearms for defense. Courts have ruled the police have no obligation to protect, yet they restrict citizens from protecting themselves. NYC is still America, the 2A still applies, and remember the Brooklyn BP president even said guns should be carried in places of worship.

    Start with organizing buchorum in 770… you lead the way, it was your idea.

    Why ‘Police, Police, Police’? ALL CROWN HEIGHTSERS KNOW that police DO NOT HELP, except for, maybe 6 extra cars that do WHAT? I used to love crown heights. I still do , but I’m petrified to go out! I fear there will be WW3 starting in America, C”V.
    Point is, don’t rely on POLICE! And using violence will not work it will cause bloodshed. Injuries. More violence. Just ask them why their doing it! Because really, WHY???

    The woman herself may have been tznius. But us Jews as a whole have a lot of growing to do in the realm of ruchnius. With all this antisemitism around the world, it’s a good idea for all of us to strengthen r Yiddishkeit and do what Hashem put us on earth to do in the first place. Let’s all take upon ourselves a hachlata and let that be r Sheild. And may Moshiach come ASAP

    DON’T RELY ON POLICE is a very true statement indeed! Police have no obligation to save you personally. That’s the way it is.
