    Please don’t degrade Mr. Hikind with requests about lowly things like activities and keeping promises

    His sole responsibility is representing us with words, not action

    not sure if you are being serious are sarcastic, either way to the defense of #1, public promises by community officials to the community shouldn’t be made if they are never kept.

    Fact is he did get them for his district although it took a long time. Fact #2 is how would cameras have helped in this situation?

    Btw no real connection.

    This P.O Sanz (in the video 12 sec) is a Rosho Gomur who hates Jews and loves writing tickets/summons. We MUST remove him Bcs he’s a rotten apple amongst the better cops at the 71pct. Kudos to the good ones and the one who took down the perp.

    i’ll have to agree with 5. where ever u live ur on shluchis, i don’t blame him or her for wanting to move out.
    i’m in the same boat, looking forward to the day.

    so much for our neighborhood supposedly being “gentrified.” men with guns fleeing through our streets where our children walk freely, in broad daylight. this is utter madness.

    ah!

    This incident has nothing to do with Crown Heights. The man was just driving by and got into an accident

    I think you should lock yourself in a cabinet so you wont get shot i mean it looks like everyones armed and everyone wants to kill you in every place theres a couple crazy people and if you dont trust in god you have alot to be scared of

    The reason the guy ran is because probrably the car was not registered and he did not have a license to drive, or it was a stolen car, and I don’t think cameras would of helped in this situation because he was driving through crown heights when he got into a accident.

    17: yes very much to do with ch, PEOPLE who live here are causing drama. not sure this guy lives here but there are plenty of related incidents in CH (i’m sure many not reported). 19: nice try but this neighborhood is proven much more dangerous than many others. where i grew up nothing like this ever happens, and we don’t have any cops patrolling. i felt very safe walking the streets all hours. here i would never and let alone my kids, no way. the only thing that can possibly make me feel safe, trust in The One Above.

    He was driving erratically. The police were afterdhim. He couldnt pass the bus so he ran. The police chased him down Montgomery and when they saw he had a gun that he lifted they shot him.

    I inderstand that the rebbe said that he wants us to stay, but that was decades ago, when the neighborhood was safer then it is today, there is so much crime going on in crown

    Wait until Mayor deblasio lets in thousands of Muslims into the city to roam freely and then we will have a problem, im predicting that there’s gonna be a lot of crime when these anti Semitic Muslims from Syria come to NY

    When the Rebbe said to stay it was because all the yidden were leaving, and it wasn’t the safest neighborhood.

    You are obviously not someone who was around in the 70’s in Crown Heights. There were horrific murders then & Jews were losing their lives. Children were not safe to wait for the bus without an adult right there. The non-Lubavitchers were mamash giving their houses away to move out & the Rebbe spoke to us constantly & strengthened us not to run ….

    I was recently in crown heights, and what happens in the roads is extremely dangerous. Too many impatient and dangerous drivers. Be happy that they’re keeping everyone safe

    glad you got pulled over by the imbicile cops – you are a nut and a loser for posting that.
    I bet you were reckless and glad you got called for it.
    Shame on your behavior.

    And for all the other croakers here – don’t let the door hit you when you leave. It aint safer in other places. look around, and you will get it. You think Israel is? (just this morning I Tel Aviv no less) Paris?

    Rebbe did say stay so many of us stay. No need to go knock the whole community.
