Unfortunately this wont solve the problem

I had a very big Gineva recently, all of it was on camera, police did nothing. I gave them lots of footage, but nothing..
Was a very big loss, and still did not get over it.
Cameras are very important though. when something serious happens ch”v. Like a attack etc. But unfortunately
The law system here is the worst!
So before you know it, the guy is out free again

Police don't want the videos

There was a shooting last week Tuesday on Union street and Brooklyn Ave. The police haven’t even come to request the video footage from the any of the neighbors! The sergeant said that it’s not considered a serious issue if no one was hit! Can you imagine? A sergeant in the 71 precinct saying that it’s not a serious issue when no one one was hit! 5 bullets shot one block from Oholei Torah, children walking the street at 5PM and the police think this is not serious. Where are the elected officials? Where is the Vaad Hakahal? Where is… Read more »

they came to me

they came to me and looked through my footage and took a copy on a usb, and they told me they were making their rounds on foot, so im guessing you werent home when they came for the footage, if you have a camera

They don't usually want footage
Guest
They don't usually want footage

I know that from experience. And did they actually make an effort to catch the perpetrator in your case after ‘they took a copy on USB’? I’m guessing nothing ever happened after that.

Foot patrol?
Guest
Foot patrol?

I’ve almost never seen that in Crown Heights in over 20 years except on labor day where they stand together in crowds on the corners.

To protect you need to monitor 24/7

To protect you need to monitor 24/7

Do u think why inside the big stores there almost no crime, not because of the cameras but because of the security crew that sits there and monitor all cameras and if see any suspicious activity they will act as a security ….
who will monitor all CH?

They could watch footage before during and after.

No one will watch to prevent /live
Guest
No one will watch to prevent /live

You can’t watch so many households and streets to spot the crime before it will happen. You need to monitor constantly 24/7 big residential area.
Ps. All crime was on video they do it openly, because no one looking for them, specially the package 📦 chives…..

crime is probably not solved with a one dimensional answer. Cameras can help. As can learning how and when to defend yourself. As can getting licensed for a handgun and learning how to use it. As can carrying mace. As can yelling for help. As can educating the criminals. As can tweaking the legal system so that “minor” offenses and crimes incur consequences or rehabilitation that act as real deterrent to future crimes. Also, while any and every crime is noteworthy and important to try to prevent, and Crown Heights (and other areas of Brooklyn) Jews (and non-Jews) suffer an… Read more »

Excellent idea!!!

Excellent idea!!!

Simple yet brilliant solution. Lets nip crime in the bud and protect ourselves with video surveillance.
It’ll deter criminals and show them they will not get away with their evil actions.
Im inspired to buy video cameras now and you should too.
Ill call B&H tomorrow BEH…

Hakodesh Boruch Who is our camera

if it was decreed that someone wil lose a certain amount of money or get attacked it may be stopped through one instance because of cameras but if the eibershter decreed you will lose a certain amount of money cameras aren’t going to help. make a hachlata to learn an extra half an hour a week or have more kavana in davening and say the words slower. this is the way to get rid of the horrors.

This is a good idea. It’s possible that these are reminders from Hashem to connect to him more because we are beginning to stray. May Hashem protect us from all evil.

How about starting with the basics of turning on the light in from if your home so the streets are well lit !!its sad how many people can’t turn a basic light . Encourage your landlord to keep the porch light on! It’s for your safety and the safety of others

Same no street lights as well
Guest
Same no street lights as well

Our streets are too dark,even main Eastern Parkway is too dark. City cut the bill but who suffered?

Lights are just as important!
Guest
Lights are just as important!

Other than the very important street lights, every household has the option of fixing light on the facade, or in front of the house.
With today’s LED lights the monthly expenses is minimal.

Many blocks here are terrifying to walk on at night, as the trees cast shadows and block the street lights.

Building could fix one or two floodlights on their side.
Albany Ave, for example, used to be very scary at night until lights were added on sides of buildings.

It’s a one- time expense for the fixing, that could actually save life.

This will only help if law is enforced
Guest
This will only help if law is enforced

If law enforcement was willing to enforce the law when these acts were perpetrated against the Jewish community c”v.. then it would hypothetically work. But even if they aren’t, at least the footage will help when we have to take things further.

They turned down the street lights

THAT was the city’s response. No matter what the excuse, the city can decide where to allocate and where not to allocate.

Brilliant Idea!!
Guest
Brilliant Idea!!

I propose a “gofundme” or sponsored raffle to get as many cameras set up as possible. We have to defend ourselves like we have always done throughout history.

Cameras are hardly self defence

Self defense is a whole other matter- one which we don’t seem to be quite ready for yet for some reason..

Awareness and protection
Guest
Awareness and protection

1. Preventive, be aware of your surroundings and be aware.
if they have a gun, they will choose someone who will be easy.

2. Carry legal defense protection like pepper spray, mace.https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004NKSPR8/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_5?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 Hurt them so hard they will invent a new anti movement to assault c”v.

It's illegal to ship pepper spray to NY
