November 21, 2013 3:00 pm

only Hashem can give us safety. it sickens me that my kid wont be able to walk in the streets alone anymore if things like this happen

November 21, 2013 1:47 pm

number 13 is correct

Anyone atacked, scream: CHAPTZEM! (CATCH'EM!)
November 21, 2013 1:21 pm

Ever heard of this term? it got rid of the problem in Borough Park and other places.
When a incident happened the victim would scream chaptzem and everyone in the vicinity turn to him to help him catch’em!
(I’m not advocating to use the methods used there once they guy is caught..(although it would make it end quicker..) lets just hold him tight until Police arrives.)

I’m sorry for the pain of the victims…terrible, horrible. Yesterday on Schenectady & President I spoke to an intelligent (Speaks 3 languages) Afro-American teenager for over 1/2 an hour about the ‘Chochmas in the Aleph-Beit’ and ‘The 7 Noahide Laws.’ This makes friends and helps instill a fear of G-d in people. Some Jews here question my tatics: “You can’t teach them ‘Aleph-Beit’ that’s Torah!” “They’re ‘chaiv misa.’ Dear Jews of Crown Heights, go learn about ‘The 7 Noahide Laws.’ Read Rabbi Moshe Weiner’s (Of ‘Eretz Yisroel.’) book in Hebrew or English: ‘The Divine Code.’ This is a ‘schulchan aruch’… Read more »

this doesnt get resolved because these kids don’t come from proper homes where their needs are being met. Their schools should be reporting neglect and abuse to the authorities….no matter how rampant it is. If there arent enough social workers etc for this, then let them show statistics/numbers and request more for a certain period of time until it gets under control. What will it do to get these kids off the street to keep them busy as the black contingency suggested. It is the problem of what is happened (ed) in their primal/formative years. Isnt it time we looked… Read more »

pepper spray?

November 21, 2013 8:46 am

I see this country headed to a civil war,
Bec this knockout plague is going beyond New York ect

#4, #6 Spray paint can work

At least all stores on Kingston have it readily available and all homes have it by doorway. Small cans for bags or purse. There has to be a way a legal way to fight back and make these hooligans fear getting caught. Bystanders can mark them in permanent bright yellow paint as they run away. Police look for perps sprayed with yellow paint. Open to other suggestions.

all over
November 21, 2013 2:29 am

A women got hit in the face by a group of teens while she was on her bike and they called it the knockout game. and she was from Washington, DC, so this is happening all over.

November 21, 2013 2:18 am

if these kids are going around punching people what would they be doing when they are 20 shooting people, It is so sad that kids have to be scared to go out

Awesome idea #4!
November 21, 2013 1:08 am

Also, if someone feels they are abt to be attacked they can spray it at the attacker’s face …or anywhere actually, they’d certainly be temporarily distracted.

November 21, 2013 12:10 am

Police arresting this girl means nothing. They will let her free. They are under so much pressure so they made this arrest. No hate crimes as promised. Inspector is full of lies. We must get rid of him

I have the anser to the knock the jew campaign.......... krav mga!
November 21, 2013 12:08 am

self defense is an absolute must it should be instituted in every yeshiva during the breaks for לכל הפחות half hr a day! yiden have been picked on for thousandss of years we need to protect ourselves! I personally go to this great krav program in coral springs run by a bt! instead of deciding how to stop the criminals, stop yourself from getting hurt by protecting yourself! for girls it’s even more needed! parents it’s up to us! go on twitter #bkmtyt (in case you live under a rock and dont know that stands for “bring krav mga to… Read more »

Good news but follows pathetic record
November 20, 2013 11:31 pm

How many thousands of hate crimes have been perpetrated in this community over the years?? So finally one arrest is made. That’s good news I guess but somehow I’m not quite as jolly as one would expect.

from experience
November 20, 2013 10:58 pm

I watched a 16 year old “child” punch an adult man in the face with such force, he broke his nose and his face was so full of blood. I’m so sick of hearing the child excuse. If they exhibit the force of an adult, they should be prosecuted as one. Period.

November 20, 2013 10:42 pm


what ???
November 20, 2013 10:35 pm

How can they be reformed Tomorrow they will be back out on the street They should be sent to a reform school or boot camp to be taught a lesson.

November 20, 2013 10:00 pm

heres hoping he gets the electric chair as we learn- do them in now before they grow to real evil

how can no one say:
November 20, 2013 9:20 pm

in other words yay

#4 Genius!!
November 20, 2013 8:50 pm

Not so practical but a great idea!

This is crazy!
November 20, 2013 8:27 pm

I am afraid to walk alone. I had to walk three blocks today, and I was looking over my shoulder the whole way. And my kids won’t go out the door alone. We have to drive them everywhere.
when will this end??

Yellow spray paint in hand?
November 20, 2013 7:44 pm

Bystanders can spray and mark them as they run away. Aim for the skin.

this is crazy
November 20, 2013 7:43 pm
