let's be like in Israel

In Israel almost every attempted stabber was shot dead on the spot. It’s time we start carrying firearms like in Israel.

as far as this sentence below……arent all the shelters supposed to have social workers and Social Services?? that should be investigated too…..there surely must have been signs that this is not a typicl person
Rochelin, who lives in a shelter on the Upper West Side, was later arrested and charged with robbery, assault and possession of a weapon, police said.

Chanina Spirlin said he admitted it

But police say they are not authorized to talk about a confession. Then they talk about taking a long time to establish d and a on the knife. To me the pictures don’t look the same.

after all of that ! they finally caught him! it is really interesting that he admitted to it!

Not Impressed

They didn’t find him due to their efforts but by sheer coincidence (Hashgocho Protis).

This will be downplayed as a psychotic episode, rather than a hate crime, as yesterday’s victims were not (visibly at least) Jewish.

Is the rally/meeting still on for tonight?
March 10, 2016 3:04 pm

Can someone official respond if the rally/meeting still on for tonight?

Tonight YOU can save another person from being stabbed!!!

Agree anyone that lives in ch must must come that is the only way police will do anything

Quote from the NYP
March 10, 2016 2:36 pm

“He’s also being charged with a hate crime after cops CONNECTED him to the stabbing of a Hasidic man in Brooklyn on Feb. 10, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Thursday.”

They just want to get over this case and thats it. They made him admit to the crime so that they wont get harassed by us any more.

"Admits" ? strange...
March 10, 2016 2:34 pm

suspicious , why in the world would the guy admit? But mainly why in the whole wide world..would they need him to admit?? Just check the Picture out & see if its him???? Just wondering….

March 10, 2016 2:34 pm

Do you not see that they are trying to have a small or no show of people turn out tonight? We ALL must be there as a community and hear directly from the police what THEY have to say. Let’s stop listening to hearsay and ATTEND and hear from the police themselves. Let’s help keep our community and children SAFE!! If we don’t care who will????

yes or no ?
March 10, 2016 2:33 pm

1) was the stabbing of brikman anti Semitic now that he also stabbed goyim ?
2) is he the same guy that stabbed also katz ?

everyone msut come
March 10, 2016 1:59 pm

It’s for your safety! Everyone must show up tonight at 7:00. The bigger the crowd, the more seriously the police will work to keep us safe. and the stricter they will be with this stabber.

A picture a must.
March 10, 2016 1:35 pm

We need the guys picture to see if it matches the one we already have.
Otherwise we cant know if its just a cover up,by claiming that a guy who is anyways be arrested for stabbing 2 other people on Wed. & saying that he’s the one We are looking for. A PICTURE is a must.

Doesn't sound credible
March 10, 2016 1:24 pm

It sounds like they are desperately trying to show they have a handle on the situation

Another false rumor?
March 10, 2016 1:20 pm

Of course need for the meeting! We MUST show we care!!!!! I don’t believe it until I see a pic!!! Enough with false rumors… Just to make the higher people look good

So no need for the nypd meeting tonight
March 10, 2016 1:14 pm

I guess they wont need to “brief” the community on the investigation now

he stabbed others too?
March 10, 2016 1:11 pm

so it wasn’t antisemitic?
