POSSIBLE Hate Crime???
November 17, 2021 10:10 pm

Don’t care what the police want or don’t want to call this, we know what this is and we knew what this was 30 years ago. Get these incidents on the news, stop hiding it. There are plenty of good people in the civilized world who are on our side and know exactly what to call this animal behavior, and will help us get that animal behind bars where she belongs.

This is getting scary

I think people are forgetting that ch is part of the hood and there is lots of crime that happens in neighborhoods like this and crimes like this happens to people of all religions and races. I am not saying that this individual case is or is not anti Semitic but people cant say every crime is targeted because they are Jewish.
