what a joke!!!

Just love how the “NYPD” is already making excuses for the attack??!! They will release him in few hours ( if they haven’t already) the 71st precinct is a joke!!!

A part of the problem is we have a bunch of So called ” leaders” who are more interested in photo-ops than actually taking people responsible up to task, for fear putting their personal connections in jeproady.

This problem has plagued the Jewish people for many years and unfuranately for us regular crown heighters there ain’t much we could do.

Not a 'Knockout' Game

Please call it what it is: the same hate crime against Jews in Crown Heights by blacks that has been going on since the beginning of Jewish life here. When a grown man (if he can be so called) perpetrates a targeted attack against Jews it is counter productive and dangerous to write it off as the popular game of the moment.

Nothing will happen to this thug But if we dare attack back we will be life in prison

That is a sick person, why is he not being hospitalized?

another case under the carpet

First look in the picture the cop didn’t even cuff the thug.The man was full aware of what he was doing . Punching a 6 year old boy in the face for no reason only because he is white is a hate crime . Its time to get rid of the inspector ,and the lousy good for nothing detectives who do nothing. Every case perpetrated against Jews it seems to be prosecuted to the fullest. When its the opposite nothing happens .
PLAIN AND SIMPLE ANTISEMITISM

The community leaders must get involved to make sure this thug does jail time.

the next time it happens , if we were to catch the attacker and hang in on kingston, i bet they will be afraid to come to crown heights and do it again

Are you naive?

What community leaders? They exist in theory but reality teaches us otherwise.

In NYC it is perfectly legal to carry a folding knife concealed, so long as the blade is not longer than 4″. Look it up.

What’s going to be with this crazy violence? It has got to stop!
I saw on another article on col today how a bunch of politicians came to CH yesterday. Did anyone speak to them about this? Can’t something be done? This is ridiculous!

When we get more then 125 to protest. We may start getting some respect from the politicians.

THIS IS REALLY MAKING ME SICK!

No other community would up with this garbage!
This is happening too often! We should be protesting in the streets!

To #13 you are missing the point
Guest
To #13 you are missing the point

Our standing up and protesting won’t do much. We’ve tried it before, they laugh. We need to have a powerful community defense system in place without being so frightened of backlash from police or the criminals. We need to put the fear in the criminals to make them think twice about attacking anyone.

Fact is even small protests DO work both by getting rid of Commander Vega and by the Ehud Halavy incident. Imagine what a large taking to the streets (yes blocking traffic if needed) would do. Crown Heights used to be respected but even though our voting and business power has grown our political and by extension personal safety has decreased.

Did you guys miss the part where the assailant was schizophrenic?

Not a game. Not a trend. Not a gang. A schizophrenic

Park all our cars on Eastern Pkwy (not orderly) and demand a better response.

It’s possibly not the local pct’s fault, it’s either our so-called criminal justice system or the psychiatrists. I am NOT anti-psychiatrist, but am pro-honesty and sanity. I’ve got stories to tell about them. Here, in America, they tend to show kindness to the cruel, therefore bestowing cruelty on the kind. How many times was he arrested…10? Makes good business. Yes…#15 you probably are correct. Vigilantes are only necessary when the existing authorities aren’t doing their job. Without very tough law people swallow ea. other alive.

‘The attacker is a 40-year-old black male with a long psychological history and suffers from schizophrenia, a spokesperson for the NYPD 71st Precinct told COLlive.’ So, it the ‘shrinks’ deemed him non-violent they erred in their assessment — Sue them! That’s all they understand.

So…if he’s schizophrenic, give him ‘a split head.’

So what if he's schizophrenic?
Guest
So what if he's schizophrenic?

Someone who might cause harm to others should not be allowed on the street! Jail or hospital, but no on the streets.
Having psychological issues doesn’t excuse anything.

You are missing something here, it’s exactly the attitude of blatant anti semitism around us that allows any crazy person to believe that the Jew is the easy victim. Ten to one he was not focusing on black 6 year olds. Crazy people look for easy victims too.

if he's dangerous
Guest
if he's dangerous

hospitalize him or lock him up, and throw away the key.
At least this dog was maced. Most other perps don’t even get that.

Here is the plan: u get bochrim from every zal to protest on Sundays, 500 strong! Tell them , it could be them next time. 2: hire an atty to demand the Nypd does not wash this case. 3. Demand our “leaders” work just as we’ll with out a podium or camera, or they will be voted out. 4. Bring the news and let them hear from every victim in the last ten years who did not get justice, then file suit in federal court to bring the justice dept to clean up the corruption in the 71

Yes, he is a schizophrenic, that’s horrible and sad. But do you really think he would have done the same to a black guy and his son walking down the street? I don’t think so, he had enough sense in him to pick the “right” target. And unfortunately this is not the only incident. It’ s happening very often and not all the perpetrators have schizophrenia. Who the heck goes punching ppl for the sake of it? SICK!!!

yeah getting maced has a sting to it….

well now there is a men’s only Krav Maga class in Boro Park…

Yes, I absolutely believe a schizophrenic would/has/will attack a black, white, hispanic person
Guest

I dont really think you can apply anti semitic beliefs or a trend of anti semitism to a schizophrenic. People with that ailment, when violent, don’t typically discriminate.

How many reported cases of the fabled "knockout game" are there anyone?

what leader

It says the leaders should have davened more. So either
rochneeas or gashmeeas the leaders need to be called out

Who released this attacker?
Guest
Who released this attacker?

The psychiatrist who decided this attacker was sane enough to be freely roaming the streets should have this incident (and others the police seem to be well aware of) entered into his- the psychiatrist’s- professional record. If that were done I’d bet he’d think twice before releasing potentially dangerous patients to roam the streets. P. S. Regardless of his mental condition,there’s no doubt in my mind that the attacker chose these particular victims because they were visibly Jewish.
