Boro Park Riots

Such a kiddush Hashem.

I wasn't sure I heard right until I logged on to the local news tonight. Boro Park riots?? Fighting the police, lighting garbage on fire. Suddenly I'm getting Me'ah Shearim hafgana flashbacks all over again. Those were always fun, weren't they? The last time we saw those images was during 'Sheitel-gate'. I'm wondering if some quick-thinkers used this opportunity to get rid of their chometz?

The police report that the individual was stopped for talking on his cell phone while driving, refused to hand over his license and registration and struggled with the officer. Locals describe the police officer as punching and assaulting the 'elderly' and 'fragile' old man unnecessarily. Why do I have a feeling that the first account is probably more accurate? Especially when I hear the 'community activist', Isaac Abraham being quoted.

As always, check out the Chaptzem blog for the latest 'unbiased' reports.

*Update*

This made the front page on some local newspapers.

I knew that I'd be reading this before long:

...But protesters didn't heed the warnings and ran through the streets, some yelling, "Nazi Germany!" at the officers.


This sickens me. Of course the arresting officers were a bunch of anti-semitic KKK members as well.

Here are some more pictures in response to our neighborhood loony, Heshy, who claims it was 'just a few kids blowing off steam'

ITS NOT A RIOT. It was a ranting. Whats the big deal. No one was hurt and kids need a little excitement now that they are home for pesach. Why do you outsiders of Brooklyn run into a panic.

Ummm, I beg to differ Heshy. Actually people WERE hurt. If your idea of letting the 'kids blow off a little steam' consists of scuffling with riot police, setting fire to trash and throwing burning debris into police vehicles (after first breaking their windows), remind me not to send my kids to Heshy's House. Not to mention the HUGE chillul Hashem that was caused.

"Outsiders of Brooklyn". I actually lived in Brooklyn for a while. When 'you insiders' of Brooklyn finally come to the realization that the world doesn't revolve around you, maybe then you'll start bahaving like mentchen for once. But we have to remember this is Heshy we're talking to. As long as we learn Torah, the police will be there to serve us, their masters. Right?

Hesshy you mental patient. this is coming from a lifelong insider of brooklyn ...these "kids" are thugs who live their pathetic cowardly lives in wait of an opportunity to do something like this and not get caught. It sums up the lives of chassidic ghetto dwellers who spend their days looking under rocks for imaginary nazis and anti semites. when they can't find them they turn against each other (satmar thugs, bobover thugs, lubavitch thugs, lakewood thugs, etc.).

The city should have arrested 800 of these animals and let them sit in a waiting cell until after Pesach. By the way, noach Dear, who these pathetic ingrates didn't have the courtesy of voting for in the last leection (he lost by under 1000 votes because the ingrate BP don't vote, would have prevented this from ingniting the way it did. He was plugged into the NYPD like no one's business and knew how to work with these guys. They respected him because he was tough. But the idiot chassidim and their vacant leadership wil never know.

And what about the leaders. where were these loudmouth rabbis when some leadership was actually needed. noone heard of chassidic rabbis running through the streets telling their "followers" to settle doen and go home. where were they. Or do they know deep down that if they cant threated someones shidduch they really have no power. the whole system is a garbage heap of thievery and phoniness.

one day someones going to recommend building a wall around boro park and sadly, not one person will give a damn. its persecution they brought on themselves.
