    It’s unbeliveable that Shluchim need to be in a place with physical fear for their lives!

    Please help them! I gave 180. If you can give more, please do so.

    Get out of there.A miracle from heaven and the Rebbe!!!!

    Such a society is not the place for a family to live.Why take risks.A security system isn’t going to do anything except create
    A greater risk of harm.Tourists especially Jews should be informed and stay away until a stable government with police protection is established.

    I’m pretty sure I know what the Rebbe would say about this- DON’T give up and only work harder! such a place needs even more light to be spread…

    Can they hire someone privately to find these creeps? Offer a percentage of the recovered goods. Or is NOBODY honest, and the private guy wld just keep it all?
    There’s gotta be a way to reach closure on this – in addition to fund raising

    They are hoodlums armed and dangerous who will rob anyone regardless of race or religion.The Rebbe would never put any Jew in harms way. We have to protect our family and not take risks needlessly

    In some countries, such as Costa Rica, it’s common to have an armed guard watching the property. It sounds like this would be appropriate for them.

    I lived in South America for a while and this chemical spray is a very real very common method for burglaries, kidnappings and far worse. Baruch Hashem only possessions were taken. Only armed security will work when living in these countries. It is a very common practice even for middle class families.

    You are probably from those people that complain that the shluchim come once a year and crowd your beloved crown heights. Go find out what dor hashvi is all about. These people are shluchim! What are you?

    Can you give an address...

    I’ll bet that not only do the local cops know exactly who did it and where to find him, he probably paid them off in advance to play dumb and do nothing–he may be a cop himself, for all we know. This is one of the many reasons illegals come here–because in Mexico, justice is a joke.

    What kind of spray was this? Thieves in Italy where doing the same when I was living there. Very scary, you must install iron doors and windows just to be safe!

    Which Shluchim run....?

    Which Shluchim run....?

    Genuine Shluchim don’t usually run after a setback. It generally just makes them stronger and more determind.
    And ones doesnt have to be in South America/Mexico to experience such trauma. It happened to us in Europe years ago. We too were gassed and burgelled and like the article states, BH only things were taken, and BH our lives left in tact.
    It was super scary….

    Tests come in various ways. It separates the men from the boys. This test is a test not for you but for them. A Chabad Shliach doesn’t back down from Goliath or a czar. Connected with the Rebbe means infinite success.

    WELL SAID!! All these armchair critics – put your money where your mouth is, and GIVE. I did. I know them personally and they are fantastic Shluchim and very special people. B”H they weren’t hurt.

    Iv’e spent there some time. I recommend anyone looking to see what real selfless shluchim are, go to cancun for the weekend.
    Always doing everything with a smile, The Druks are a truly incredible Family!

    Baruch Hashem, only material possessions were taken.

    The anesthetic spray is a scary development in home invasions, this is the first time I’ve heard of it.

    I agree with the comments who said the Druks should have an armed guard, and I would add that the Chabad center should probably have two armed guards. Given the level of corruption in Mexico, I would suggest hiring Israelis fresh from the IDF.

    I don’t buy products from Mexico or support them. Shame on those Jews who vacation there… The government is corrupt and we should boycott them. Why must we send Shluchim in such dangerous places?

    wow
