Three young girls captured on camera harassing and then assaulting two young Jewish girls were apprehended by police on Wednesday, CrownHeights.info reported.

Having received several tips, members of the Shomrim volunteer patrol “staked out” a bus stop the three girls were known to frequent. According to CrownHeights.info, the three girls, ages 11-12, all appeared at the stop  at 3:30pm. Shomrim then contacted Detective Hector Marin from the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force, who asked Shomrim to follow the bus and make sure the suspects stayed on board until police arrived on scene.

One of the suspects exited the bus not long after and was caught by police. She then fingered her two friends and all three were taken into custody.

Two of the girls were released into the custody of their parents while the third one – who is seen in the video choking her victim – was charged with a hate crime and was arrested.

Another woman came forward after recognizing the girls in the video and said she too had been harassed by them in a prior incident.

Shomrim Volunteer Gadi Hershkop told The Algemeiner that everybody involved was pleased with the outcome.

“We basically took care of this whole case from A to Z. We went to the original location, we got the video–we helped out the detectives and worked with them closely. It was a very good team, everyone cooperated and it worked out for the best,” he said.

    Though nothing will happen to those little beasties – after all the judicial system embraces the social philosophy that they are not responsible for their actions – at least they were arrested. In Israel where Arab youth regularly hurl deadly rocks at Jews going about their business, the IDF refuses to do anything. Now one has to wonder which state provides Jews with better protection.

  • These girls are still babies, this kind of world view is passed down from their parents!

    Instead of giving a yearly party with tons and tons of food etc to foster good relations, the JEWS should have cordoned off their section of Crown Heights. How stupid do we Jews have to be to reward those who hate us? So, Yankel Rosenbaum was stabbed by one of these trashies, and we Jews reward them? STOP THE PARTY NOW.

      Great idea! The Jews of Venice had the same idea about 600 years ago. Because of anti-Jewish attacks, they petitioned authorities for the right to move their community behind walls, finally settling on an abandoned arms factory called “il Ghetto”. It must have worked pretty well, because soon all the kings and princes of Europe were moving their local Jews into “ghettos” of their own. Good thinking. Let’s all emulate those Venetian Jews and hide ourselves away behind strong walls and stout gates – nothing bad could come out of that, right?

    Hamas Commander Reportedly Urges Hezbollah to Join Forces Against Israel

    JNS.org – Five months after Israeli forces tried to assassinate Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif in Gaza, Deif appears to have signed a letter that the terrorist group claims he wrote in hiding. The letter, addressed to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah, expressed Deif’s condolences for the death of Hezbollah terrorists during Sunday’s reported Israeli airstrike in Syria. Deif is said to have survived multiple assassination attempts, but he has not been seen in public for years. According to the Hezbollah-linked Al-Manar [...]

    JNS.org – The cracks that had been simply painted over for so long began to show in Ferguson, Mo., in November 2014, but in truth they had begun to open wide much earlier—on Saturday, July 13, 2013. That is when a jury in Sanford, Fla., acquitted George Zimmerman of culpability for the death of a 17-year-old black man, Trayvon Martin. The cracks receded from view over time, as other news obscured them. Then came the evening of Aug. 9, 2014, [...]

    ‘Homeland’ Season Finale Stirs Controversy After Comparing Menachem Begin to Taliban Leader

    A controversial scene in the season finale of Homeland sparked outrage by comparing former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to a fictional Taliban leader, the UK’s Daily Mail reported. In the season 4 finale episode, which aired on Dec. 21, CIA black ops director Dar Adal, played by F. Murray Abraham, justifies a deal he made with a Taliban leader by referencing Begin. He makes the remarks in a conversation with former CIA director Saul Berenson, a Jewish character played by Mandy [...]

    Placing Matisyahu Back Within a Life of Observance

    Shining Light on Fiction During the North Korea-Sony saga, we learned two important lessons. The first is that there are two sides to this story, and neither of them are correct because ultimately we should have neither inappropriate movies nor dictators. The second is that we cannot remain entirely fixed on the religious world, but we also must see beyond the external, secular view of reality. It’s important to ground our Torah-based thoughts into real-life activism. To view our act [...]

    Nine Decades of Moses at the Movies

    JNS.org – Hollywood has had its share of big-budget biblical flops, but until now, the Exodus narrative has not been among them. Studios have brought Moses to the big screen sparingly, but in ways that defined the image and character of Moses for each generation of audiences. The first biblical epic In 1923, director Cecil B. DeMille left it to the American public to decide the subject of his next movie for Paramount. DeMille received a letter from a mechanic [...]

    Exodus on Screen (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – The story of the Exodus from Egypt is a tale as old as time itself, to borrow a turn of phrase. It’s retold every Passover, both at the seder table and whenever “The Ten Commandments” is aired on television. But the latest adaptation—Ridley Scott’s epic film, “Exodus: Gods and Kings”—fails to meet expectations. Scott’s “Exodus” alters the source material to service the story and ground the tale, but the attempt to reinvent the biblical narrative becomes laughable. Moses [...]

    JNS.org - In December 2007, leaders of the Hazon nonprofit drafted seven-year goals for what they coined as the “Jewish Food Movement,” which has since been characterized by the increased prioritization of healthy eating, sustainable agriculture, and food-related activism in the Jewish community. What do the next seven years hold in store? “One thing I would like to see happen in the next seven years is [regarding] the issue of sugar, soda, and obesity, [seeing] what would it be like to rally the [...]

    JNS.org – Forget the dioramas. How about working on an Israeli Air Force drone? That’s exactly the kind of beyond-their-years access enjoyed by students at the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) industrial vocational high school run by Israel Sci-Tech Schools, the largest education network in the Jewish state. More than 300 students (250 on the high school level and 68 at a two-year vocational academy) get hands-on training in the disciplines of aviation mechanics, electricity and energy control, and unmanned air [...]
