Nightly Chaos Ensues As Police Stand Down

Crown Heights residents are bitterly complaining about non-stop fireworks which have become a nightly occurrence in the neighborhood without police interference. "The silent majority has lost their voice, and the city has been hi-jacked," a police source said. Full Story, Video

The police gotta step up and put and end to all this anarchy!!!

Full blame goes to De Blasio, Cuomo and all those blaming everything on cops, screaming to defund police

cops have their backs tied behind their back but get all the blame from everyone

they are today’s current scapegoat

call City Hall

Call Albany

Call your local government council

and do not attend a BLM protest…this situation and worse is where they are heading the country

A band-aid solution: use a white noise machine to drown out all sounds.

If someone is old and has ptsd from war, or a child who is afraid of loud noises, or a child with special needs, or a person with insomnia, it’s not “just fireworks”

It’s just graffiti

If you understand how things work, fireworks means lawlessness which means increased crime, etc.

Wrong.
June 17, 2020 1:04 pm

I thought these firecrackers, sometimes at 3 am were only in my area of
Crown Heights, but I see it’s elsewhere in the neighbourhood and in other
parts of the city!. They are trying to provoke regular people. May
Moshiach come soon.

My physical therapist, who lives in the upper West Side, said the fireworks were going off there as well. Interestingly, she used to be the average liberal (though non-Jewish). She is now questioning the wisdom of having a Democrat in office.

They are not just fireworks. It is terrible…families are up to 1-3 am in the morning. This is the area by Rutland and Brooklyn. How can children sleep? Where is our quality of life??? The mayor has empowered the elements of the city that want to disobey the law. Youth roam the streets, looting, stealing. He has undercut, dismantled and disrespected the police. He is terrible for the quality of life in the city. I don’t understand –we are generally tax paying, law abiding citizens and we have no protection, no rights. It is time the whole, I mean the… Read more »

So maybe instead of complaining and complaining, we unite as jews finally and do something? WE too can protest, we too can bombard our local officials with calls and demands. NOt sit at home and complain!

I heard them on this corner at around 8-8:30. Thinking it came from the playground by the PS (if it is open)

Better idea – let’s send them a social worker. Maybe that will get them to stop.

Only Call Police

Everyone in CH, Please Call 911 right away when this is happening, Give them the Location that it is coming from, (Not the location that you are at) I know a few Lubavitchers that did that and the Police Did show up, although a few minutes later but its better calling and have them come late than not calling at all, Also if you know forsure that they are lighting fireworks from the Roof of a specific building then Call 911 right away and give them the Address to that building, Tell the dispatcher that there are people trespassing (and… Read more »

I’m telling you, America is right now, No-Man’s Land. There’s no law; there’s no order. It’s every man for himself. The Police is rendered useless here. These fireworks, the protests, the riots, De Blasios incompetence, the parks, the camps, its all leading to Moshiach, I tell you that. I thought I’d never see the day that America, considered to be a relatively stable country, would be in such a state of total havoc, up in arms with its citizens. A civil war is really possible right now. This is classic pre-ww2 material happening right now. There is nothing to stop… Read more »

Building Roofs
June 17, 2020 2:59 pm

As well for all those that live in Apartment rental buildings, If you hear the Roof Alarm go off (most apartment buildings have a loud roof alarm) If you hear the Roof Alarm & if it is common in your building that criminals go to the roof a lot, Then when hearing the Roof Alarm Call 911 right away to report people trespassing, hopefully the Police will respond before they get a chance to do their fireworks….

A good idea to have the children less frightened by all the horrible blasts, booms and noise all night every night from the fireworks is. Tell the children how beautiful fireworks are, and it is a celebration, and the noise is just so there can be beautiful fireworks for everyone to see and enjoy. Obviously this does not take away from the fact that the thugs doing this is disgusting and the noise is not enjoyable at all and it does actually feel like we live on the front lines in a war zone, but just to keep the children… Read more »

We’re talking 1, 2, 3, 4 AM.

we’re talking extremely loud, as in very very very very loud.

we’re talking kids who have huge sparks right outside their bedroom windows.

In theory it’s a good idea, if you have a kid with sensory issues or is highly sensitive it’s not so simple.

Small tip

June 17, 2020 7:43 pm

Until things get under control, but your kids or yourselves a white noise machine, and plug it in near your window. It’ll help avoid the kids getting startled in middle of their sleep, as there will be a constant white noise playing loud all night or day…..

call 311
June 17, 2020 7:13 pm

call 311 every night fireworks are going off, the only way the people elected do anything these days is if they are harassed, i urge everyone to call 311 whenever they hear these fireworks.

FIREWORKS ARE EXPENSIVE: WHO IS PAYING?

Firework for a month and countless hours aren’t cheap.
Who is paying for this supplies; who is selling/supplying; who is distributing them.
This is what should be investigated.

IT SEEMS THAT THE MAYOR IS FOLLOWING THE SAME POLICY THAT DINKINS HAD DURING THE CROWN HEIGHTS RIOTS OF 1991, NAMELY AS I DIRECTLY QUOTE DINKINS “WE HAVE TO LET THEM VENT “. WHILE THE MAYOR IS SO WORRIED ABOUT PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS BEING OPEN FOR CHILDREN TO PLAY, HE HAS NO QUALMS ABOUT LETTING THESE DEGENERATES USE THESE PARKS DURING THE NIGHT TO SET OFF FIREWORKS. THERE IS NO USE IN CALLING 311 AS THEY WILL TELL YOU TO CALL 911. WHEN YOU CALL 911 THEY EXPECT YOU TO KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THE FIREWORKS ARE HAPPENING. DO THEY EXPECT… Read more »

We are in galus and Hashem is waking us up to beg for moshiach. Dont you see its right before moshiach and we got too comfortable in galus! The rebbe spoke about how close we are to moshiach but there are jews who are so comfortable in galus they are not wishing for moshiach. This sunday is the anniversary of when the spies were sent to tour israel by moshe. 40 days until tisha bav when their bad report made tisha bav a day of mourning. Lets beg hashem for moshiach

When I worked for the city (early 90’s), there was an incident where, behind 770, an African was caught stealing clothing from the Kollel gemach. So, what did the guys do? Vigilante justice. This got us negative publicity in the media. So, A co-worker (living in Bensonhurst) told me. “you know what your problem is? You guys are too overt.” I retorted,”So what do you do in your neighborhood?” “ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! We have the mafia patrolling our neighborhood. If anybody does something, 6 months later they find him dead on the Belt Parkway, and they wonder what happened… Read more »
