    Times Ignores Crown Heights

    A New York Times article trying to clear Mayor David Dinkins' tainted record, conveniently fails to mention his defining moment: the Crown Heights riots. Full Story

    It’s very easy to try to re-write history about 2 decades after the reality, as the NY Times is conveniently trying to do. But the fact remains Dinkins failed miserably the minimum basic leadership requirements and let down many of his constituents at a time when it was most critical for him to act like a true Mayor. Enough said.
    I was going to vote for Thompson (can’t stand Bloomberg) but after seeing him proudly posing with Dinkins I think I’ll sit this one out.

    The “thousands” of additional police hired by Mayor Dinkins was all to naught as far as Crown Heights was concerned.To have all those police out on the streets of Crown Heights during the riots of 1991, and them being under orders to hold back and not enforce the law ( as in the Korean boycott ) is a true reflection as to the Mayors incompetence and bias.

    How pathetic!

    Well of course it doesn’t mention Crown heights, the article is about what people don’t know about Mr Dinkins, as the author points out in the beginning of the article.

    There is a reason that the NY Times readership is going down,, they think the public is stupid,,, so they can ply them with lies,, but the only stupid people are the editors of the NY Times, and LA Times,, because they pander to the illegals and the liberal idiots, instead of the intelligent among us,,,, so we dont bother with their papers,, they lose money,, and the illegals cant read their garbage,,,

    Dear Olam Hasheker……..et. al. This is ‘galus.’ What does Satmar do if the chicken is unkosher? At least you can ‘pluck the feathers’ off the chicken and try to get something wholesome and useful for your neighborhood and yourself. Guliani himself, a local knowledgeable lawyer told me, only gave Crown Heights about $2 Million dollars after the ’91 Riots. “Chump change,” responded the attorney. This is ‘galus.’ You’re not going to find a Shlomo HaMelech, etc. amongst these politicians. The politicians are not so much leaders, as they are followers. Just vote, then cover your eyes and nose.

    did nothing about riots, till days later; this shows his views about the jewish community;we should not really care about any other things; I think Guliani made good point, but he may have gone little too far, or was misread.
