    wasn’t a love crime…

    Fair enough - there was no evidence of bias

    But he still deserves a few years in jail. He almost killed Brikman!
    He should NOT be let off easy.

    How do we know this was all accurate? It seems clear that this idea was motivated by the past attacks in Crown Heights that went unpunished and by the attacks in Israel which started it all. This does not sound good and could encourage the many with similar ideas c”v. The fact that this was all conducted with such secrecy and even at police conferences questions were prohibited implies a lack of transparency. There is something wrong here.

    assault?

    then it would be hate crimes, just that he hates all Americans and/or non-muslims, and perhaps Jews even more

    Questions were not prohibited at the police conference. On the contrary, the Chief asked for questions and answered them.

    and that is why the violence won’t stop-the consequences are minimal.

    What a joke

    The idea of punishment is to make criminals afraid to commit crimes.
    This low life should be given the same punishment as he inflicted on Brikman.

    He almost took someone’s life for no other reason other than the fact that the victim was a Jew.
    I bet you a million dollars if it was another black innocent person it wouldn’t have taken the place (I mean the stabbing)

    Thus man committed a crime and will get punished according to law. He is mentally ill and has serious health issues.
    He should be punished, Jewish or non jewish, just like anyone who commits a crime.

    There’s no conspiracy against crown heighters.

    Yes, it is possible that it was a hate crime and probable that it was attempted murder. However, prosecutors will often only charge on things they think will stick and since they probably can’t prove attempted murder and surely not hate crime they won’t prosecute for them.

    This is how the judicial system works. Like it or hate it.

    What?!!!
    Guest
    What?!!!

    That murderer would stab a cop and he would be shot .
    instantly.
    Whoever came up with the excuse “mental illness” shall
    say that when he or his child gets stabbed.
    This community will not accept any less fair sentencing-
    at least long time imprisonment!!!

    Why was this not attempted murder?

    This is despicable. Are they trying to actively encourage more of this? The criminal was lucky that his prey actually lived, the type of attack and area on the body indicates an attempt to murder. Instead, he gets off on ‘assault’- out of prison in a short time (what’s his minimum sentence anyway?). A few good meals and TV programs and he’s back on the streets, an encouragement to all who know him.

    Cant prove attempted murder? you must be kidding, he had a knife and almost killed Brikman, assault could be a push, not a knife
    and i’m sorry but its very disrespectful of you to say ‘calm down’, if it G-d forbid be your child you wouldn’t talk like that
