1. Was it this lady Jewish ? WHERE EXACTLY IS THE POLICE PATROL ????

Does it matter?
Guest
Does it matter?

Doesn’t look like she was jewish but does it really matter? An attack is an attack regardless of who the victim is.

That’s not really true.
Guest
That’s not really true.

Of course it’s terrible either way. But it’s different when it’s a targeted attack against Jews vs. an insane person attacking people randomly. Don’t fall prey to the leftist rhetoric.

Actually it DOES matter

AS a member of the Jewish community I take a special and unashamed interest in my own. I’d like to know why there is an immediate arrest when it is NOT a Jew and zero reaction until the FBI are called in when it IS a Jew such as the case where the 63 year old man was attacked with a brick. Two MONTHS to arrest a driver whose license plate was caught on video after dragging a Jewish person down one and a half blocks- they knew his name and address!, ZERO arrests on the knife attacks (remember those?… Read more »

UNACCEPTABLE.

who is behind this incitement?

This is no longer an isolated incident with one attacker, this seems to be a trend, there must be either a person or group that promotes this kind of hate and violence, we need to stop this at the source.

Perhaps the woman that mapped Brooklyn with Jewish stars or other people like her.

CROWN HEIGHTS, not "Prospect-Lefferts Gardens"

CROWN HEIGHTS, not "Prospect-Lefferts Gardens"

This location is in the 71st PCT. The “Crown Heights” branch of the Brooklyn Public Library is even farther south on NY Ave. than the location of the horrific incident.
This incident occurred in CROWN HEIGHTS — whether you identify it as such, or not — not in “Prospect-Lefferts Gardens,” which is west of where this incident occurred. The awful act happened on the border of “Prospect-Lefferts Gardens,” but it was in Crown Heights.

Really now!!

We used to single out the African community as the perpetrators of crime against the Yidden.
But, the whites are worse! Look at Pittsburgh and Poway.

You're not making sense

Exactly 2 people perpetrated those crimes, percentage wise crimes by white people are drastically lower.

Numbers game

Let’s say that 99 out of 100 are criminals, and
that 1 person is the nicest, sweetest person in the world.
Doesn’t he/she deserve to be excluded from the other 99?

What A Coward and Low Life Scum Knocking To The Ground This Defenceless Elderly Women Leaving Her Unconscious No Remorse Then Leaving Her There Without A Care And Quickly Walking Away Deserves Long Prison Sentence.

Remorse?! He wouldn’t have done such a despicable act in the first place, if he had an ounce of compassion, kindness or humanity, surely.

Another Attack by a Mentally Ill Homeless Man

Another Attack by a Mentally Ill Homeless Man

Keep increasing the amount of mentally ill /drug addicted homeless people in CH and of course there will be more events like this.

This is one of the rarer cases where the sucker punch or knock out attack was black on black crime.

Crown Heights/Brooklyn – stop being so provincal. Most of the currently reported violent incidents are the result of untreated or undertreated mental health issues or drug use. The perpatrators commonly lash out randomly, often tageting the closest person or perceived enemy, even family or close friends. Hate crimes are the result of ignorance and misinformation and by negatively labling those encoraging hatred we commit the same avera! Another factor to consider is that modern communication means more people hear of more incidents in more places than ever before. Do you remember the stories of earlier days of USA history when… Read more »
