cameras
October 15, 2013 9:16 pm

Cameras are important but you can’t always see their faces clearly so then how do you identify them?

How does one worship themselves? The answer to the other two questions is both no.

# 23 Are you thinking?
Who goes out walking alone at 1AM, 2AM etc.?
Are you willing to stay up all night? Who pays for it? If you must go out late at night, try to walk with another person and try to walk on well-lit streets, and perhaps, Jewish blocks, if possible.

Dear # 27 Who are you?
October 14, 2013 11:44 pm

Probably a teenager.
Say, I’m not coming after you with a baseball bat.
Do you believe in G-d? Does G-d control situations? Don’t worship idols: yourself, money, power, government, etc.
# 27 YOU don’t believe it…who are these ‘people?’ Be honest.

its a shame
October 14, 2013 10:54 pm

the reason the police showed up in such numbers is only because the victim is a relative of a community activist.
if this was a regular girl from our community there is no way that all these detectives and high ranking officers would of come to the crime scene. we need strong leadership to make sure the police patrol our shechuna!

Go spread the knowledge of ‘The 7 Noahide Laws’ and be a ‘shliach’ or ‘shelucha!’
Seriously…who is going to spend months on learning martial arts because of the chance you might be attacked? Perhaps it’s ‘bittle’ Torah?’ (Ask a ‘rav’) Probably better off giving the money to ‘tzedakah.’

Install cameras. (There are a few local crown heights companies that do that. i had a good experience with Mizuri Systems.)

is this a gang initiation issue? These lost individuals must be caught on surveillance cameras, we all must get them, can the CHts Community council get them subsidized?

Well, sad…sad. ‘Refuah Shelaima.’ ‘Todah’ to NYCPD. Want to reduce the occurrence of these problems? Simply follow my lead. I’ve spoken to more Afro-Americans in Crown Heights than (almost) anybody else. I spread the knowledge of ‘The 7 Noahide Laws’ (almost) every day. Just today, in the morning, I gave out three sheets. Sheets? Yes. These ‘sheets’ include the Aleph Beit from our ‘siddurim’ with a few web sites listed on top, plus my email. I have a unique approach…that can be YOURS as well! I’ve had wonderful results, and have spoken to about 250-400 people in the past 3… Read more »

not 747 crown
October 13, 2013 8:12 pm

i hope those thugs get caught but from the pictures i recognize those pictures as crown & schenectady (you can even see the back of reim ahuvim in some of the pictures)& 747 crown is by utica.it looks to me more like 707 crown or something like that.it,s definitely crown & schenectady which is not 747.

Lock them up!
October 13, 2013 1:37 pm

Catching criminals is not the problem. they need to be punished harshly. If they just come down to the station and get sent home with a warning (as is common) the say hello to many more such incidents. and increasing levels of crime.

Police joke

Go to the public school were they are being baby sat and pick them up

prevention is better than cure!
October 13, 2013 1:04 pm

PREVENTION should be foremost !!!! PREVENTION! and punishment, CONSEQUENCES for ones behavior !!!

ZZZzzz

Cameras. Pictures. Cops. There will be no arrest. And if yes, they’re minors and out the door. Yes, you should see that they’re arrested, but unfortunately that won’t stop a group of disrespectful, violent, poorly raised kids from doing it again. Unfortunately a torture session would be more effective. Or a lengthy discussion asking how they’d feel if their mother was accosted as they did.

A camera is an optical instrument that records images that can be stored directly, transmitted to another location, or both. Cameras are not stopping the action taking place in that moment.

I agree with #5 we need more patrols. And to #10, I rather donate to a mikvah instead.

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP
October 13, 2013 12:29 pm

And it won’t happen by itself. Come on Crown heights, be proactive.

Talk to the CHJCC!! Where is the money?

schools
October 13, 2013 12:20 pm

2:45 is still school hours which means they go to one of the local schools…getting in touch with them is very important! to at least make them raise awareness to the fact that no one is standing by while these things happen. plus anything that happens an hour before or after school is often handled in coordination with school anyway.

Cameras are good!
October 13, 2013 11:47 am

If they know there are cameras they will be scared to act out!
Of course we also need better protection!

i would donate for the cameras before the mikvah
ps the cameras need to be watched 24 hr

Light up Crown Heights
October 13, 2013 11:19 am

Can someone explain why our streets in Crown Heights are so poorly lit at night?

Why don’t we install lights on the front of every home like they do in the suburbs?

The street lights are insufficient and people hide in the shadows.

Every alley between houses should have motion sensor lights and back alleys too.

what good are cameras, they merely help catch the animals- we need more POLICE and ones who are not afraid of these animals in order to prevent such incidents so that there is nothing to catch on a camera

Lets be careful to differentiate between privately owned camera’s and one’s placed by the GOV. Privately owned such as those that showed the real story at Aliyah and in this case are of great assistance. I am less convinced about those controlled by the government.
