    Did they take the bike c”v. If not then this is a no-brainer – but we already knew that. And those who “should know” obviously have NO brains in their heads.

    Everyone – PLEASE be extra careful. The kids are all home and we can not rely on safety in numbers. And overwhelmed moms — don’t take chances with your kids!!!

    wow, this is such a shame!

    shmira was aropund the corner when it happened . They heard screaming chaptzem ,and gave a chase to catch these 2 thugs .1 thug ran in to his house and the other thug ran in to to a store. shmira was guarding both locations .
    There was a africian American supervisor that showed up and she let the thug get away. The other thug that ran in to the house they refused to go to the house .
    we all must call internal affairs and make complaints

    Here we go again…these kids are out of control! Where are their parents???? Why are they not being taught basic decency?
    Between this and the bikes stolen the other day its really depressing to see…seems like there’s no solution.

    “The crimes seem to indicate an upswing in the brutal “knockout” ***game*** in the area”. Please stop perpetrating the lie that this is a game!

    Unbelievable! This is going on and not a word from our jcc or leadership. So as usual we just allow this to go on, and we are again ‘the victims’. We can’t let our kids out alone – this kid was attacked at 4 pm for goodness sake, in the heart of crown heights!

    I have been living in crown heights for the past 50 years and we went through many difficult times. Yesterday early evening I had to go out and for the first time I was scared as I was walking.

    instead of puting money into making the speed limit of 25 on eastern parkway maybe put money into more cops doing pedestrian watch

    Just 2 cents.

    I come from Russia and remember well how we lived among the nations. Gentile teens always punched each other to the face. Most of Jewish families in our area payed serious attention to the phisical development of the boys just to be able to protect themselves while walking home from school or when playing outside. Besides mandatory sport classes as a part of public education, most of us attended sport classes for training purposes and somehow our parents have chosen for us either box, or self-defense, or jujitsu, or freestile fight.

    I don’t understand why people in CH are not calling for a mass protest today. Every single person man women and child should be out on eastern parkway protesting violence. Dont make an excuse leadership, its your town your children what are you waiting for. put up signs make calls social media get out and protest peacefully. Let the police know we wont stand for this not today and not any day. Enough is enough. Then enroll all children girls and boys in self defense courses.
