Check on the Lyft app. There’s a quick way to call 911 in the event of an emergency

‘No arrest’ and ‘Police not treating it as a hate crime’.

I, frankly, am “shocked” at the demo of the alleged perp.

Hate Crime

There is no such thing as a hate crime against a white person.

The driver is obviously unhinged, lyft is dealing with it it seems, the police saying he’s just erratic. Lyft will probably compensate and move on

That is horrible

And so wrong! You can’t just act “erratic”, attack someone and get off. Crazy.

Just Erratic?

I’m sure most of the assault perpetrators of the world are erratic too. So let’s reward them and show them it’s ok to go further by letting them roam the streets- THAT won’t lead to anything worse I;m sure, right??
Let’s just say if it had been the other way round they wouldn’t have let it go.

We live in a horrible anti-semitic world. I only saw this on COL. This this needs to go viral. Imagine if it was the other way around, a white jew beats up an African American, there would be riots and marches against whites and Jews. But when a Jew get punched, every one just shrugs the shoulder. This is the new America where people have chutzpah to hit another human, and get away with it because the victim is jewish and white. Please Rabbi Shemtov, tell your govt acquaintances.

Clarity please

If the face didn’t match because the 1st driver canceled, the 2nd driver who took the ride’s face and info should’ve cone up?

Report the driver to Lyft.

Lyft doesn’t stand for No nonsense.
He’ll be fired from his job.
Thank God.
Please God.

He should be in jail or in a facility where the public is safe from him.

Uh…. he’s already been fired. Reading is fundamental.

It's obviously not a hate crime

Lyft is a bad car service

If the driver is not a US citizen, and has is arrested for assault, he can be deported!

The police have an identification but haven’t made an arrest? This is why DC has a violent crime problem.

The perp has been identified and still no arrest? Plus it isn’t being treated as a hate crime? Could it be that someone in upper echelon of the PD is a virulent anti-Semite?
