Maybe get the same tzadikim who were seen protesting last sunday to maybe try to protest this???? Obviously not, because first of all Black Live Matter and second of all to stop fireworks is straight up RACISM!! our black neighbors should be allowed freedom to do whatever they want!!! Y’know 400 years and stuff… welcome to a leaderless and lawless New York and especially a LEADERLESS CROWN HEIGHTS!!

It’s being reported elsewhere that no arrests can be made unless police actually see an offender light the contraption, and that since NYC has shutdown its plain clothes crime prevention unit (yes that really happened) it’s no longer possible for that to happen.

Roof of buildings

If you see Fireworks coming from the Roof of any Building, If you know forsure that it is coming from that roof, The best is to Call 911 right away, give them the address and tell them that there a people Trespassing on that building Roof (It is illegal for anyone to be on the roof of a pre war building) The Police will respond faster for a Trespassing Call which is a “more serious” crime than fireworks.

Enough is enough. New Yorkers need to be able to live in peace. The fireworks are out of control every single night.

Symptoms

Symptoms

As chassidim, especially ‘chabad’ chassidim we should be smarter than focus on symptoms.

Silencing symptoms is more dangerous, it gives a false impression of order, when in truth, the lawless are even angrier and more violent.

No. Research Broken Window Policing. You mean well but what you are advocating is ignoring small infractions. What this does is reinforce the sense of lawlessness in our community which will lead to a downward spiral in criminality. I also have no idea what ‘symptoms’ you are referring to. These are just young men doing what they find amusing. It so happens that this type of entertainment is illegal and disturbing and persistent. If it would have been one day in support of the emancipation of the blacks who did not arrive in the states in recent decades from the… Read more »

Famously effective broken windows policing, which has not been disproven at all!

What does Chabad Chassidim have to do with not focusing on Symptoms?

From the same logic, you could have said: as a carpenter, you should be smarter than focusing on symptoms!

I’m sure the NYPD wouldn’t pay attention if people went around in cars and shot paintballs and BBs at people lighting fireworks, wouldn’t be too hard to locate them.

The right approach
Guest
The right approach

Mayor Giuliani, in his time, did a great job and greatly reduced the scourge of illegal fireworks, by choking off their supply/availability in the city.

To stop individual cases of lighting, once people have them in their possession and are lighting them already, is by far an inferior approach, as it requires much more effort and manpower.

The better approach by far is to cut off the supply of these illegal substances before they reach the individuals who might light them. That is what should be done.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

The police are more than capable of stopping it. They don’t want to stop it.

I’ve been told that the police are here to protect us, and we should be thankful for their existence. Doesn’t seem like they’d be the kind of people to hold a city hostage?!

Terrible lesson
Guest
Terrible lesson

The lesson this teaches us is that unfortunately, violence works. When law abiding citizens call the cops and city leaders, nothing happens. When lowlifes burn stuff and riot, things happens and policy changes.
The lack of leadership will lead people to take the law into their own hands and cause more violence and death. It’s only a matter of time!

Whatever happens is hashgocha pratis and it is for a reason. The rebbe spoke about people rioting for rights in 1991 and he said its a sign of moshiach getting closer. We should be longing for moshiach as we see the golus is not the place to be. What we see is a symptom of much more. Rabbi paltiel spoke about it in the latest ask the rabbi

easy to identify
Guest
easy to identify

It is happening boldly and openly. A policeman sitting stationed in his car by any location where it is happening can see who’s doing it. They are nor afraid and don’t try to hide.they have carte blanche. The police have no support so they don’t try to identify and stop. It really wouldn’t take much to identify who is doing it.I’m sick of lack of sleep and giving in to bullies.
