How does saying “Yechi” help stop the rocks?

Thank you NYPD

I just want to express my gratitude for the efforts of the NYPD in taking these incidents of hate crimes “seriously,” and using their manpower to make our streets safe. I think Dr. Martin Luther King’s memory is being honored with the steps the NYPD is taking to prevent this situation from escalating. However, I think the youth perpetrating these hate crimes have sadly lost sight of what Dr. King had hoped for. As said in his emphatic words in his eloquent speech, “I have a dream”: “…When the architects of our Republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution… Read more »

The real problem
November 17, 2013 5:43 pm

You think the problem is that these crimes never lead to arrest. The real problem is that any innocent Jew in this community trying to defend themselves will certainly be arrested- and with great eagerness.

thank you!

Thank you Deputy Inspector George Fitzgibbon. However there is only so much that he can do.
If the laws are weak, the CO’s hands are tied…by US!
Tougher laws!
An eleven-year-old rock thrower is a big question. Are they ‘chaiv’ for strong punishment? Throw rocks at them?

Thank you nypd
November 17, 2013 11:37 am

We appreciate your efforts to keep us safe.

Results is what counts
November 17, 2013 11:12 am

Let’s see if the break ins go down and the security goes up, till today the only police work going up was ticketing

Learning Krav Maga wouldn't hurt.

I am number 11 and I am ready to volunteer and be a block watcher who can coordinate this idea perhaps we can have a community meeting enough is enough and if need be I will try to coordinate We need more feedback

watchout for car break ins in evenings
November 17, 2013 1:25 am

Brooklyn Ave this past Wed eve had a couple of cars ransacked. Cant even leave old navy returns inside anymore.

Big joke
November 17, 2013 12:58 am

Whats this buisness using auxiliary police to do the dirty work for the nypd. We need 100 of the real nypd to do the beat walk up and down albany, brooklyn, kingston ,and schenectady avenue . That will cut the crime out.
auxiliary guys are voluteer who give their time 4 hours once a week. Inspector is tryimg to fool the comunity

think effective
November 17, 2013 12:52 am

even if you need a “think-tank”, get an effective plan of how to deal with this when you catch those little kids. They are not so innocent, even if they’re just 11 yrs old. They will be better off for their own good, if they are dealt strongly with NOW.

as yidden don’t stoop down to garbage

Thank you!!
November 17, 2013 12:18 am

I hope this works!

re Questioned? does sound abit toothless, not much of a deterrent, however, lets hope that this new commander will settle in and get the job done! i agree, we must give him a chance

questioned!!!!
November 16, 2013 11:19 pm

I have a question for you, what are you thinking?!!! If you don’t punish the”small” crimes than you’ll end up with career criminals.

Thank you!
November 16, 2013 10:28 pm

Thank you for increasing the police here to make this place more safe! We all appreciate your effort!

Thanks
November 16, 2013 10:20 pm

Thank you to the NYPD keep up the good work!!!! J. Just say yechi and it will be ok

to everyone
November 16, 2013 9:51 pm

yes number 7 is right…we leave school around 5…..

Numbers 1 &2
November 16, 2013 9:21 pm

They aren’t getting away with it. Saying the school is dealing with the punishment probably means suspension.

to # 11 hope you will be the first volunteer to implement your good ideas

It's not about tolerance.
November 16, 2013 9:16 pm

It’s about right and wrong, good and evil, moral and immoral, lawful and unlawful. We are not looking for sympathy or tolerance from the African Americans we want them to behave like law abiding people. How pitiful when a comunity fails to teach their children right and wrong. There is absolutely no telling what could happen.

sorry this is not enough
November 16, 2013 8:56 pm

these children should be punished wouldnt the black community demand the same if it was one of theirs whien will this end we also need to put in place our own block watchers to be on alert and report to the shomrim and police of anything suspicious also we should march through the streets in protest and we need a jewish al sharpton to speak for us

Meir
November 16, 2013 8:38 pm

BS”D the extra police will be around until 12/31/13. Come 1/1/14 poof

Good start
November 16, 2013 8:29 pm

We need to send a clear message to these criminals

yea
November 16, 2013 7:47 pm

thank u!

very nice
November 16, 2013 7:39 pm

thank you NYPD for doing something about it, i think Beis Rivkah High school is dismissed at 4:40 so “until 5pm” is a bit early to leave, not sure about Darchei

hooray
November 16, 2013 7:37 pm

we get to feel safe BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh

Questioned
November 16, 2013 7:26 pm

Lets hope this commander TAKES CONTROL!

I get a good feeling about his sincerity, lets see if he actually has the leadership it takes, lets give him a chance to produce RESULTS!

The great big free-for-all
November 16, 2013 6:53 pm

Since no one is ever charged by the police, they are always first time offenders after their 20th violent crime, and therefore, are free to continue getting better at it without fear of consequences.

'Questioned'?
November 16, 2013 6:51 pm

Why only questioned? Are there any questions to ask other than how do you like your prison food, well done or rare?

November 16, 2013 6:31 pm

I am sure if an 11 year jewish kid threw a rock at a black kid 5hat the punishment or lack of one would be the same. NOT…

Only 11 years old
November 16, 2013 6:17 pm

I dread to think what these “only” eleven year old thugs will be doing at 15 years old.
This is a deadly game to throw rocks at people and it should be treated as a serious crime.
How about having some other 11 year olds throw rocks on these thugs.
