    Not surprised

    I’m sorry that this happened to you and your son!
    Very upsetting yet unfortunately not surprising .
    This neighborhood has become a place that requires securtity on every block . Night AND day .
    COL – What can we as a community do to implement change ( meaning extra security) on our streets.?

    lets bring it back and forget shmira shomrim or 911 just beat the living daylights out of anyone who attacks us. that is the only language they understand. give them a taste of their own medicine.

    more protection

    more protection

    we need more Police protection in c.h.
    every block should have a Police presence.
    there should also be cameras installed on every block.
    what is the community Council doing about it? shamirah is good, however, they come to the rescue after the incident.
    we need a good deterrent.

    Where are the police?

    Where are the police?

    If I leave my car parked on the wrong side of the street, in five minutes I will have a ticket on my windshield. Since they have perfected, with military like efficiency, parking rule enforcement, certainly if they had the will, they could control these unruly marauders, who believe, unfortunately rightly, that there are no consequences for their bad acts.

    Why not check cameras of near houses and file a police report now ?

    Sounds like the other story where a black woman scared and touched /pushed a young girl on the porch of the girls house . Don’t know why not to report it ? And find the other 2 men that were there …. next time it will be more wild attack

    CHJCC Must Divert Funds for Secrity

    In the past few years, in CH, there have been a tremendous amount of housing built to warehouse the mentally ill, drug addicts and the homeless. CAMBA got $99 million dollars in NYS Grants for the “supportive housing development for homeless and mentally ill and/or drug addicted” on Albany and Winthrop. There is the recent Bridge Development for the mentally ill and homeless on ENY Ave next to KFC. There is a new homeless shelter on Rogers Ave. And there is the Salvation Army Homeless Shelter on Clarkson and Albany. These people walk around the neighborhood like zombies when they… Read more »

    I believe you can file a report after the fact as well. And there are probably cameras also. Cameras have become a very reasonable price. People that know, please post info on those online camera services. They are quite reasonable, and have proven useful in these situations. Unfortunately, it doesn’t prevent, but maybe with time, if people are caught, or know there are cameras around…

    You can't rely on the police to protect you. It's dangerous and unrealistic to think that you can.

    Only you can ensure your own safety. There is such a thing as justified violence. It’s called self defense.

    The CHJCC should invest in the local civilian Patrol, and should coordinate with them patrols in the community, NIGHTLY. They already have patrol cars, they have members who are willing, the CHJCC should take initiative, and provide support to these patrols, so they can continue there service to our community…

    The next time such an incident like this happens, one should knock the stuffing out of them without any hesitation and call the police once they’re out on the floor. You’re potentially saving other jewish people from harm and it seems like physical force is the only thing these escaped zoo animals understand.

    our dedicated leadership spend night and day worrying about how to help anash and we should show them hakaros hatov and not attack them, they spend countless hours meeting elected officials to help our community. regarding cameras what good is it, if the person who attacked you is going to be deemed mentally ill and let out scot free.

    I don't get it
    Guest
    I don't get it

    I don’t understand Jews in CH… half are saying how bad it is (duh), half are saying how we need more police, cameras, patrols etc…

    How about don’t rely on others to protect you. Only you are your best protector! This is a call to action

    All I want for Christmas is for Assistant Commissioner of NYS Homes and Community Renewl Colonel Jacob Goldstein to help get $ 1 million of NYS fund to go for crime prevention, just like how the real estate landlords are getting $1 million from CHJCC from NYS Homes and Community renewal under the weatherization program on their nys tax returnq

    It’s Someone of the real estate people who are trying to drop the prices of the houses in crown heights are sending them. Or some one preparing to run for the next election and wants to say that the community council of before was no good is doing this, this is an inside job.

    Can’t you folks tell this is a case of mental illness.?

    Some of these comments are so silly and backwards.

    You know about mental illness? Ask someone that knows!

    Stop making more then what it is.

    Stay vigilante, yes, but stop the silly knee-jerk reactions.

    That is the one and only way be”H. This will call for a higher level of unity in our community. A united front, not relying on the police or the community council- the definition of insanity is trying the same thing that is not working again and again and assuming different results.

    You guys – people in CR are nuts for not doing something drastic. If the community leaders the Vaad the spokes people of CH will only showe themselves when they kish zich on mit di officials. Then their all ambiguous and nothing worth. People of CH stand up for yourself. Don’t be ah lemmele to these aggressors. Silly folks of the community please stand up for your self respect and your righteousness.

    There is a way to stop all this very easy

    Cameras help but police are too busy with murders. There is an easy way to get the attention of the press but more so the politicians. I don’t know if colive will run this comment. Everyone in any leadership position in all jewish communities are afraid. They don’t want to rock the boat. But here is a fast and easy way that all you big talkers who feel powerless can do something to put the crown heights situation on the map for serious solutions. Some of you think becoming vigilantes. That wont work because blacks are more streetwise than jews.… Read more »

    Consequences of Oversaturation of Mentally Ill / Homeless in CH

    The above video is an example of the consequences of the oversaturation of mentally ill and homeless in CH. One thing is clear – everyone has to vote, and understand the issues in the physical world. The CHJCC does not want to Rock the Boat (@ Comment #28), because more then half of their budget benefits real estate interests..($ 1 million ) from NYSHCR and the real estate interests don’t want to rock the boat with talk of demanding and bothering NYSHCR with more money for cops and cameras. No one will call out the elected officials who they are… Read more »

    Just because the people who are attacking have mentel illness does NOT mean we need to be more tolerant of their behavior and let it happen. These attacks should NEVER be tolerated, if anyone can’t control their anger/behavior they should be in a place were they are fully supervised, if they commit crimes they should be arrested and dealt with accordingly. Mental illness is a growing problem but allowing these people to act violently is NEVER ok.

    Antisemites feel empowered when they think Jews are helpless. A taser shot not only crumples them up on the ground, it also disillusions them of their sense of power over the defenseless.

    Guys , here is my take on the issue…I recently joined an organization called Act for America from Bridgit Gabriel, a pro Israel conservative activist ( she came and spoke at a lady’s event in CH a few years ago) she says the following: Guess how many people need to call an elected official so thinks can change? You thought 1000s right? Actually only 50 people are necessary….because think that every person is behind some sort of group representing 1000 voters so make the math: 50x 1000 = 50000 perceived by them…I’m tired of all this stuff in this neighborhood… Read more »

    Okay, tough guys...

    Not everyone in CH is physically able to beat up an attacker. Think about children, teens, girls, women, elderly men and women. Sure these thugs should get what’s coming to them, but not all of this would be capable of doing it. I’m sick of hearing about corrupt Jewish landlords (that is what you’re saying, isn’t it?), and corrupt CHJCC (is it really?) and corrupt elected officials. If that’s what they are, then the community should take action to change the situation. Because this is getting to be an emergency situation. Patrols who are not afraid to engage the troublemakers… Read more »

    Is there some kind of heter the beis din has issued, that is a big secret, for regular Yidden in Crown Heights to CARRY on Shabbos:
    –pepper spray
    AND
    — tazers
    (as some of the above people are saying, as Monday Morning quarterbacks????)
    I don’t think so….

    BP Eric Adams only provides $2500 for CHJCC but gives CAMBA homeless shelter $1 million dollars to build on Albany Ave and Winthrop…

    and hypocritically years ago ( 2012) said $1 million in surveillance cameras should go to CH and not Boro Park…..and then gives $1 million to CAMBA…and bubkis for the Jews on Kingston Ave….

    Don’t vote for BP Eric Adams unless he opens up his budget…its all about the Benjamins…

    It’s also racist discrimination….. But what really can help it’s an education of all public schools here that Jews are normal guys , who works hard to support their families, who are same Americans as Blacks and have a past more suffering then slavery and for punching them or descriminate them or hate crime
    All mental and homeless are really need to be under 24/7 supervision system of taking medications or be locked …
