Is anyone surprised that they haven’t found the perpetrator? I had my iPhone charger stolen from my car on Sunday day in broad daylight on Carroll between Kingston and Brooklyn Ave’s, brothers and sisters I strongly urge and suggest that we all lock our cars.

We’d do ourselves a service if we address how an adult feels motivated and gives himself permission to take something from someone else. Who taught this person (and why) this is ok? How did he get conditioned to allow himself to choose this action? Consequence/punishment is necessary, but getting at the root and source is equally necessary, if we want a safe environment. It’s not the color of skin, or even just the individual. It’s something that allows such action to take root and grow. I wish there were some way to get into the specific culture that fosters such… Read more »

One contributing factor to this behavior is not nipping it in the bud. By condoning yarmulka theft as regular stupid child behavior and refrain from administering consequences, we breed this kind of more “mature” behavior.

You are overthinking this.

This problem is largely due to drugs. Addicted people need their fix and will go to any length to get it. He grabbed the pocketbook in the hopes that there was cash in there. He will take the cash and toss the rest.

Such behavior does not have to be learned, it’s natural. No animal has any hesitation in taking what it wants from a smaller or weaker animal. Only humans have consciences that prevent them from stealing, and only if their parents trained it into them. If ones parents are themselves thieves, then one will never learn not to steal.

This is a very brave lady for striking that savage back. A few years ago I was mugged and badly assaulted in Crown Heights, and called an #### Jew. The cops never found the animal perp or put much effort into finding him either, it was a hate crime too. It kind of got pushed under the rugs. If NY law allowed, I would carry a gun and would use it if I had to. I suggest they install more cameras all over CH as Dov Hikind promised to do and never followed through with it. They apparently did this… Read more »

Good eye! Yes, it seems he had a lookout / backup. Important for citizens and police to know.

The article clearly states that Shmira did backtracking camera technique and concluded he was on the hunt for almost an hour before he struck. Also the still image of the perp is definitely from a different camera, not on Troy

The Seven Noahide Laws’ mandates death penalty for this. The American Government MUST institute these laws.
The American Government ENJOYS crime…

Maybe he needed the money for a down payment for one of the 2.5 million dollar homes in Crown Heights?

So scary but women with little kids are 100% target for such robbery, pls make sure all CH residents are waking without showing any valuables and

Bring Police patrol to our streets , he will come back again

Just a note

This woman was carrying her wallet and cell phone on top of the child’s stroller. I see many people doing this and it is obviously an easy target.
I am not blaming that victim ch”v, just noting that there are precautions we can take to decrease the chances of these type of thugs attacking us.

We need to save our communities and outvote thel liberal politicians. Also we must import Chinese neighbors just as they did in Boro park all around 8 ave and the streets are very safe. Who your non jewish neighbors are determins the crime rate.

Hashem is reminding us to keep asking beseeching for Moshiach. We started feeling too comfortable in this Golus thinking that we will be here forever.
