Thank you 71st Precinct and Chief Powell of Brooklyn South
March 13, 2016 1:41 pm

Thank you 71st Precinct for working hard to keep the peace in our community and going above and beyond to accommodate all our Jewish and chassidic holidays not to mention the conventions where we see many extra posts and tours of duty. Although we are surrounded by precincts on al sides that are plagued with violence including weekly if not daily shootings and murders, the police that are posted at our precinct have additional responsibilities and issues to contend with. Throughout the years we are quick to criticize the officers for not doing enough, but all in all those who… Read more »

just wondering......

Just wondering why there doesn’t seem to be any hatzalah members present. There is a nice showing of shmira and shomrim members, and one would think since one of their own was attacked and hatzalah is such a vital part of our community there would be a sizable presence of hatzalah members at a community meeting as important as this one.

Good turnout

Important for them to know we care and are present.

It is quite obvious that you are not used to hearing someone speak with eloquence.

You prefer the rambling on and on of some of our CH residents.

I for one, thank the Assemblyman Dov Hikind.

CORRECTION: I for one, thank the Assemblyman Dov Hikind, and I am very grateful to him.

Why is Hikind coming to Crown heights like its his area, remember this is the guy who endorsed Jeffrey Davis the man who supports the agenda of the anti-Semitic MTOPP.

If we got a few ‘Villiamsburger’ to represent us as our Community Council, Crown Heights would shape up really quickly!

questions
March 10, 2016 11:48 pm

lots of valid questions were raised by mrs. brikman.

It not hard work - just pure luck
March 10, 2016 11:33 pm

Most successful police work is usually not because they worked so hard, nor because they are so smart but because they got lucky.

This is the case here too, Police just got a lucky break today, pure luck.

And today’s lucky break does not detract from all the sloppy police work, of ignoring all CH callers with tips to the NYPD, which they were wrong for ignoring.

Police would have had their lucky break weeks ago if they did not ignore all the tips, when they mistakenly thought they had the suspect, who was later released.

To no 1

There were questions about that and he said they are looking into the suspect in Leiby’s case to see if it is the same guy since he fits the MO, and if he is, he will be charged with that as well. However, I was disappointed that they didn’t let us know if they will actively pursue the perp in the first stabbing if it turns out the suspect they have is not connected.

Yeah yeah..

Thanks for the briefing. When they want to get someone- they do. They go all out without stopping.
