The way they handle crime in other communities
December 13, 2018 1:43 pm

In a place like bay ridge if anyone comes into their community and commits a crime, the action they take deters anyone and everyone from ever even thinking about it. That’s why neighborhoods like those are the safest in NYC (except of course when they commit crimes themselves..)

Apropos No. 27

Your is an argument appealing to emotion, not reason; I don’t buy it.

8 thanks 27
December 13, 2018 9:21 am

You are right! I have been cowardly. Thank you. I have found inner peace with your message and recognize that fear will not be the answer. I will stay and remember your message. Thank you, thank you!
Didon netzach indeed!

Time to find a mayor who cares!
December 13, 2018 4:08 am

First, find a conservative administration for NYC. Next, find ways to protect citizens from attacks by teaching techniques of self-preservation. Last, all of those who are decrying leaving for Israel – some of us have ill relatives who cannot pick up and leave. How about them? It’s very easy to say, ‘Move to Israel’ for those who have no ties here in America and no elderly parents or grandparents who are infirm. How about making the best of your current situation and believing that Hashem has control of the world? @32, excellent suggestions. Nowhere in NYC is safe! My first… Read more »

Time to consider moving?

The wise will see the writing on the wall and consider moving to Israel.

December 12, 2018 10:37 pm

Put it on the news that CH is not safe ..no wait…Brooklyn is not safe ….maybe that will cause the CHJCC to hold a public meeting since the real estate interests will be effected

NOTE TO CHPAC & CHJCC – ITS TIME TO HAVE A PUBLIC MEETING FOR THE JEWISH COMMUNITY – OR SEVERAL MEETINGS AT DIFFERENT SHULS

I promise no one will ask y’all stopped having elections.

100% right

#8 we don't "flee" anything
December 12, 2018 8:44 pm

Your advice #8 is anything but sage advice; cowardly advice might be more like it. And as the Rebbe once spoke strongly against a few in Israel who were demoralizing others with cowardly advice & actions during war time, your way is not the Rebbe’s way. Crown Heights is our neighborhood. We don’t run and we don’t flee. The Rebbe’s army stays. Decades ago when the neighborhood started changing and other groups of Yidden all moved away, the Rebbe said we’re staying. And this led to CH becoming a Lubavitch neighborhood, and it led to it being one of the… Read more »

REVOLVING DOOR JUSTICE SYSTEM
December 12, 2018 8:16 pm

AS LONG AS THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS PERMEATED WITH LIBERAL JUDGES, CRIME WILL CONTINUE TO PROLIFERATE. THE CRIMINAL PERPETRATORS ARE FULLY AWARE THAT THEY WILL MERELY RECEIVE A SLAP ON THE WRIST,AND BE FREE TO CONTINUE THEIR NEFARIOUS ACTIVITIES. OUR COMMUNITY OFFICIALS, AND ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE TO PURSUE STRICTER GUIDELINES FOR ASSAULT CRIMES. HAVING PHOTO-OPS, LUNCHEONS,AND SENSELESS MEETINGS WILL NOT BEAR ANY FRUIT BESIDE MASSAGING THE EGOS OF THESE PARTICIPANTS. WE NEED SOMETHING MORE SUBSTANTIAL THAN THESE “DOG & PONY SHOWS”. IT WOULD BEHOOVE OUR LOCAL “OFFICIALS” TO ORGANIZE A CAMPAIGN OF LETTER AND E-MAIL SENDING TO BOTH OUR ELECTED… Read more »

Real focus
December 12, 2018 7:49 pm

Of course where are the police etc. but our outcry should be where is our achdus and ad mosai?
Where is the hisgalus of the rebbe as Moshiach?!

To number 19
December 12, 2018 6:18 pm

You are correct.
Why are these attacks happening.
Look at the streets of crown heights.
Where is the tzniyos.
The breakdown of tzneiyos among women under 30 is alarming. The Rebbe would never stand for it.

I love
December 12, 2018 6:06 pm

the variety of perspectives, comments and advice by the posters here. Such a range. Lovely and interesting.

Mezzuzah reminder
December 12, 2018 4:43 pm

Reminder that properly placed kosher mezzuzah protect ourselves, our families, our neighbors, and even yidden across the sea. I’ll check my mezzuzahs for you. Please check yours for me. The Rebbe’s mivsoyim are for all of us.

December 12, 2018 4:39 pm

i agree with you 100% however unfortunately the rabonim wont do anything themselves we have to organize such a meeting ourselves and lobby them to sign a letter of support.

not unique
December 12, 2018 4:31 pm

This happens in every city in the world, every day, in broad daylight.

Anything that happens is connected to a decree above
December 12, 2018 4:01 pm

Anything that happens in this world is connected to a decree above. We just learned this with yud tet kislev. The rabbanim should come out with a recommendation like a day of saying special tehillim and torah learning as everything is from hashem. All the police in the world will not change what is happening without turning to hashem.torah tefila and tzedaka will change things. I am surprized not one person thought to say this. Its hashem who runs the world

Almost daily
December 12, 2018 3:42 pm

Every day a different crime against our community, kids, women and we can not blame the victim. Where are the leaders of our community? Taking pictures with politicians in restaurants or the sucah. Where are the cops to protect us? Please we need leaders that value everyone, not only themselves

do something
December 12, 2018 3:36 pm

And this right after the big Security meeting yesterday. The truth is just like Shmira and Shomrim the cops can’t be everywhere at all times. When walking on the street you should be aware of whats going on around you. If you see someone suspicious (like a yout) put away your phone and hold on to your packages, or cross the street. Those who are advocating to run away (no sage advice) should just follow their own advice. This will free up much needed space in the basements so others can move in. Please register to vote so we can… Read more »

No 2 ways
December 12, 2018 3:29 pm

Either we stand up and strengthen ourselves or we should move.
Why stay and live like humans in a animalistic environment? Why become like feeble sheep to the slaughter?
An idea——Perhaps we should be inviting IDF advisors to consult with our community.

We beat Stalin - wake up!!!
December 12, 2018 3:26 pm

People in our community Shrug off every incident – until they themselves find themselves under attack.
What will it take for the sleeping lethargic response that we have displayed so far to be exchanged for resolute and tough action?
Our parents / grandparents stood up to Stalin and his terror brigades and we can’t handle street thugs/ ghetto habitants???

Theft and violent crime are universal
December 12, 2018 3:01 pm

This is not just in CH,or Brooklyn, or NY,oragainst Yidden, or against the weak – it is against anyone. The biggest cause is drugs – at all levels of society. It has nothing to do with other factors – not income, not neighborhood, not police or security availability.
The best defense is common sense. Always be aware of your surroundings, lock doors (including cars) when entering/leaving, carry belongings securely, give up possessions promptly without arguing or resisting.

to #5
December 12, 2018 2:35 pm

The answer to your question is: where they’ve been up to now- nowhere. Why keep looking for help from all the wrong places and placing responsibilty on others. We are responsible for our own well being. We need to create a system of pursuing and dealing with criminals OURSELVES. No appologies, and publicizing nationally what has been going on in Crown Heights.This would take a strongly united community willing to defy both the animals and the police when they will try to keep us weak by threatening us. If we can’t do this then maybe we really should move.

December 12, 2018 2:30 pm

It must be so amazing to be you. And not bother about relying on facts: The article says he snatched a phone from her hand. That she was looking at it and was not looking around her is YOUR addition to the story.

All girls must carry pepper sprays to defend themselves

Hello
December 12, 2018 2:07 pm

We need to increase the awareness and observance of the Sheva Mitzvos, as well as a moment of silence in the public schools per the Rebbe’s instructions. Police can’t be everywhere, so there must be strong personal self control.

Sage advice
December 12, 2018 2:03 pm

Some may say I am exaggerating but I don’t think there has ever been a more dangerous time and place to be a Jew than in today’s Crown Heights. Let’s not make the same mistakes as in the past. We should flee while we can.

1970's All over again
December 12, 2018 2:02 pm

1970’s All over again …liberal policing policies and look what weve got. Not a day passes without some horrible incident. Maybe the government wants us to move? As ridiculous as it sounds think about it before shrugging it off.

looking at your phone.. not the street
December 12, 2018 12:50 pm

in NYC people look around, not down at their phones. They do this for a reason.
