    Full Story

    You have to write the full story, this isn’t everything, there must be more information, the story you write sounds like something that happened in Communist Russia during the purges or Nazi Germany, you don’t want people to start rioting, you have to provide more details.

    this can happen anywhere

    this is not the first and wont be the last, this can happen anytime anywhere. the govt can do what they want how they want when they want. dont think it can only happen to rubashkin in postville or to man in NJ, there are alot of stories of cops killing people and then trying to cover it up. when they get hurt they are the hero when they hurt others nobody knows anything

    it would be interesting to know what the race of the officers are… isreali government should become involved and demand a full investigation.

    I’m sure Zaki Tamir can help. How can a person pass away and there is no accountability???? All questionable deaths must be investigated by the DA’s office. Where did the breakdown occur???

    What's Wrong With This Picture?

    The silence is deafening. If what is stated is true, then how is it possible that absolutely no known Jewish Organization has joined in support to demonstrate against the injustice? Even the Local Chabad Shliach has not issued his official vocal nor written support to this effort? Is this real? Or is there something wrong with this picture? The local Chabad Shliach is silent and we have to send busses from 770??? The victim was a Jew who had no connection to Chabad, yet no Jewish Organization and no Shliach cares to sign their name to this call for justice?… Read more »

    This is the kind of story that usually has legs.They are afraid of bad publicity,especially in an election year.The cop is probably family of some big wig.The only motive that comes to mind here is hate.He probably demanded his rights,and some young nazi ( of any color de jour) responded with brutality. Then the cover up started .The chief should be fired.The mayor should be picketed and recalled. Police union should be sued.

    i am sure you are not a shliach as your tone depicts a very bitter spirit! did you know of this story before reading this? didn’t think so! so now go judge the shluchim who OF COURSE should have known about this. loosen up dude! appreciate the rebbe’s front line.

    My parents are the local shluchim there in nj. Mabe the organizers should contact the local shluchim in advance so they do not have to learn of it from col after the fact.

    #16 and my parents are the shluchim there. My father has worked non stop with this family and has been there for everything they need. I believe it important to know before you speak out.

    Take a page out of the book of history. Jewish people and leaders need to protest this to the strongest possible extent. Ofcourse not riot but make sure this can never happen again, we need to stand up for ourselves.

    THE REBBE INSISTED THAT CHASSIDIM BE INCLUDED

    IN THE OFFICIAL STATUS OF A “PROTECTED MINORITY” (against racial discrimination )UNDER FEDERAL STATUTE,JUST LIKE BLACKS. YOU MUST LOOK INTO WHAT THE REBBE DID THIS FOR.you must talk to the people that remember this fact.YOU MUST TAKE THIS INFORMATION TO THE ACLU , AND SUE THE POLICE FOR A RACE CRIME UNDER THIS LAW. NO ONE KNEW WHY THE REBBE INSISTED ON PUSHING FOR THIS. IT CAN ALSO APPLY TO RUBASHKIN.

    The fact is that we all know that the local shliach was called, from C.H. (on the phone), regarding THIS particular effort, about this very demonstration_rally, where a Bus from 770 came to help while he was silent. The Local shliach was asked on the phone (Tuesday Evening) by a local C.H. caller, if he was involved in a call for this Demonstration_Rally and he said “he knew nothing about it”. Now think about this: Everyone in CH knew about it, everyone is 770 was asked to come and the local Chabad Shliach “knows nothing about it” and didn’t even… Read more »

    How come many of us never heard about this and it happened about 3 months ago already. Was there anything in the news about this?

    What ‘money to ‘back the Rubashkin name’? there is no ‘money’. And maybe the shliavch replied honestly when he said he didn’t know about it. Let’s be rational & stop jumping to conclusions.

    Gangsters and Police - brothers at arms

    I grew up in Crown Heights, though I am not a Hasid. It was always clear to me that bullies grew up to become either criminals or policemen. That is not to say that all policemen are thugs but the power to physically dominate the people around them is a great attraction for that type of personality. Get them on a day when they are not finding satisfaction at home or lost a big bet at Belmont that weekend and you could be very unlucky. Best to avoid them if you can. No doubt Bornstein, being an Israeli, did not… Read more »

    Look clearly Amit got upset as the caretaker for his younger brother who seems to be autistic. Parents were in Israel. Amit probably did not show up for the minor hearing because he was taking care of brother. The deputies being untrained and just plain uncaring enraged Amit by indicating they were going to give brother to unidentified people. Amit no doubt flipped out and rather than bring in someone who knew how to deal with the issues decided to brutalized torture strip and murder this 22 year old. I am pro police but this video which they tried to… Read more »
