The Jewish youth is beaten after resisting arrest.

The Jewish Week – New York’s Civilian Complaint Review Board and the NYPD’s  Internal Affairs Bureau are probing the case of a man beaten by cops inside a Crown Heights Jewish youth center during an Oct. 8 arrest attempt,  a police spokesman said Monday.

“The NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau opened an investigation of the incident yesterday, after having seen a video of it,” Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne told The Jewish Week in an email. “The matter was also referred by IAB to the Civilian Complaint Review Board. One of the officers,  [a male Hispanic, age 49] and assigned to the 71st Pct. has been placed on modified assignment while the incident is under investigation.”

    If you are one of the exceptions kol hakavod. I lived in Crown Heights for six years and was homeless for brief periods of time in that community looking for lodging. I can tell you first hand that unless things have changed in the past decade that people are NOT looking for the mitzvah of hachnnosset orchim except perhaps to give food. There is currently a homeless old woman who sits on the street next to 770 with her bags who was married to a Jewish man in and lived in the neightborhood for 30 years until her husband died. Nobody cares about her perhaps because she is not Jewish and they let her sit homeless on the street for years. I am sure that you see this woman everyday Chaya “on your way” to 770. Have you done anything to help her, or do you just like to kvetch when somebody criticizes your not so holy brethren?

    How dare you Kulak? Where are you from Kuland? How dare you deny the tremendous hachnossus orchim provided by Crown Heights to the Olim? I know people, myself included, who have gone to 770, personally, to seek out guests who had nowhere to stay. Have you no idea of the risk we take in order to host our fellow Jews? You must be a Tzadik in Peltz from Booroo Pahk. Stay in your little basement and keep on “shteiging.” Or is it trolling? Shame on you.

    and snother thing: In Crown Heights they have difficulty “fagining” someone if they want a place to sleep much like Sodom. Oh, when it is tishrei and all the Israeli bochurim come in they give them all mattresses and some illegal basement to live in. But if a solitary jews comes into town they let him sleep in 770 rather than take him in. There have been people who have lived in 770 for years. This is why this tragedy happened. All this youth needed was what is fundamental – a nights sleep but somebody who himself had a warm bed waiting may have objected.
    So when will Mashiach come? When Lubavichers just shut up and clean up their act.

    The fury that this cop demonstrates represents the fury of Hashem toward Lubavitcher Kofrim who are Mosrim besides. This is not the first time when a Lubavitcher Moiser called the police on a fellow Jew. In fact, when it comes to calling the police on another Jew, many Lubavichers do not think twice which proves that they are Kofrim. He now says that he “regrets” calling the police. Would he still regret it if the guy spent 50 hrs in central booking or would he be secretely gloating about it. Yeah, the Lubavitcher youth stand in the street like drunken missionaries and loiter in subways wasting time that could be spent on Torah and this is why they are capable of being so vicious. Maybe they are not even Jews.
