    It was a hate crime even the most stupid person realizes that but not the infantile police for the blacks know Jews have no money on Shabos. The police does nothing, they are infantile and Jew haters as well. Since OBAMA it became worse

    Why it would be a hate crime.

    Recently in Miami County They have been pro palestinian/Hamas rally’s. It make sense to me it is a hate crime.

    Crime is everywhere…. don’t be too complacent where you live. It’s all over. I lived in famous Surfside a Bal Habor neighborhood and my friend and his wife were held up at gunpoint, gun held to his neck, outside their house!! Yes, a place where you rub noses with the rich and the affluent. It was a miracle from HaShem and the quick thinking of the wife that saved them, she gave them what they wanted and the left with her van – the police patrol was right there under their noses when this was happening! We are the only… Read more »

    I’m sorry but if you have your residents that walk around on Shabbos with a concealed weapon because the criminals are so dangerous I think that’s a hint that it’s a very dangerous town. Not something you have in any other Jewish town in Miami or Broward.

    The actual situation

    North Miami Beach is the place to be for struggling Jewish families. The people who say the NMB Jewish community is in the middle of a ghetto are absolutely correct. People in poverty don’t have the lines of credit to move into a safer neighborhood. However, despite being poor, the NMB community is lively and thriving, mostly because these Jews do not worship money. These Jews worship the family and the community relationships in a God-fearing manner. The murderers most likely come from broken societies that fail to generate healthy family structures. The Jewish community in NMB can and will… Read more »

    let’s not just rely on the police for the future, maybe the Jewish community of nmb should put together a shmirah orginization

    You right

    Crime definitely is Evrywhere .however nmb in general and the surrounding areas are known to have alot of gangs and shootouts that’s all I am saying.

    PROTEST

    PROTEST

    The NMB community should unite and organize a march in protest for this horrible crime and demand a more active presence of police in the area. The local politicians and the police need to feel some presure to take action. Let’s go out and shout until something is done. Enough is enough. We need change.

    In Florida it’s very easy to get a concealed weapons permit. There is a Lubavitcher yungerman that does FL state permit trainings there.

    I believe it’s very important for yidden to be armed wherever the law permits. NOT because you want to be a hero, but because we need to remove the stereotype that yidden are like sheep led to slaughter.

    let’s take thing into our own hands to make NMB more safe. It’s very easy to get weapon permits in florida, it shouldn’t be to difficult to start a Shmira.

But please do not lump us all together . May God Bless your Family, and help you in your healing, your Grandfather should never be forgotten because of the good he brought to all those around him.

    NMB is a ghetto; so?

    I can’t understand the thinking of those who have a what-did-you-expect attitude towards crime in NMB. So, NMB is an enclave of mentchlichkeit surrounded by, shall we say, horrible lack of mentchlichkeit .To my thinking,that should be all the more reason to applaud those who are willing to live there, and cheer them as they become the catalysts for urban renewal. Residents of NMB cannot, or will not, flee to areas of outrageously priced housing. For this neighborly appreciation should be shown. They should be encouraged, by the government, not treated as second classes citizens. As an example, what kind… Read more »

    hate crime

    There was an eyewitness that said there was no altercation. The 2 suspects walked up to the Rabbi, shot him, and walked away very nonchalantly.

    The story of an altercation was fabricated by the police to deflect the fact that this was a hate crime.

    Bye Sally Heyman and Carlos Alvarez…do nothing and get no support.

    PS this happened in unincorporated Miami Dade County and the only officials to show up and give respect were from City of North Miami Beach…screw the county representatives.

    For those that think the only option for struggling families is to live in nmb because they can’t afford bal harbour. But I’m sorry your wrong. I admit the ppl are very nice in nmb but it’s not the only place to live. How about Weston, Cooper city, inverrary… sure you might have to commute to work but the trade off is a bigger home in a safer neighborhood compared to nmb. I dont think living near restaurants and schools are worth the safety of my kids. Whenever I even visit friends in nmb I’m always left confused as to… Read more »

    Even if I agree with your point Id like to point out a lack of sensitivity in your comment. You can’t really criticize the ones hurting and mourning. This boys mistrust and anger towards all blacks will be harmless in the long run, as he comes from a culture and background of respecting and being sensitive to others. He doesn’t need your guidance.
    But for you, I respect you for respecting others, including all races.

    My family lived in NMB 10Ct. NE 181st St.for 15 years, No problem !! It’s NOT a ghetto, but reasonable prices. I would still be there if not for B’H better circumstances. Do not sully reputations of those living there now. But, they should all become 2nd Amendment advocates and arm themselves accordingly.

    Don't rely on guns alone.

    Having just a gun may not be enough to deter another gunner, especially a trigger happy one, from using his weapon anyway. So, what good does it do anyone if both hit each other?
    Should have a bullet-proof vest too. Additionally, is it any big deal to make bullet-proof hats? Yes, if they target the head, CH”V, then a vest is useless, but, still, a wider body is an easier target than the head.

    For getting the real story out…this was no simple burglary. Reb Raksin was targeted and this was a hate crime. Swatstikas and Hamas signs are all over NMB. Anash in NMB is beefing up security and many more are getting concealed carry permits due to rise in anti semitic attacks.

    I’ve walked 11 years on shabbos on the same blocks where Rabbi Raksin was murdered and never had a problem. The truth is crime knows no boundaries. The rebbe was against abandoning a community. I believe this community which is the largest orthodox community in South Florida will come back stronger. More residents will be armed and the criminals will be intimidated from coming here.
