    it would be foolish to attack Yidden in such an area with such a large Yiddish presence. these children must be shown a Holocaust video.

  • Ernie says:

    Everyone should install cameras around their homes. Then again, if its kids, what are you gonna do?

  • Boruch Gelb says:

    Someone needs to catch them and beat the kids until they are black an blue law enforcement does not take minor damage specifically from minors serious.

  • Yankel says:

    I live on this neighborhood. People’s patients is wearing thin. It’s a matter of time until a good old mafia style lesson is taught to these kids

  • Rina says:

    @earie… are you serious? So if its kids they can get away with doing anything and we are powerless to stop them? They can throw rocks and slash tires and then progress to beating people and then to stabbing them with machetes… right? They are after all just kids, right?

    • Lakeview says:

      You are right,but the problem is that unfortunately legally as ernie said there is little that can be done because they are kids.

      • Avraham says:

        That is not true. If you speak with a good lawyer, you will find out that there are different things that can be done to stop those kids. Of course for adults the legal system is different, however, the minors have their own legal system. Yes, they can be stopped.

  • Lakeview says:

    Most of the windows are directly above or behind where children are sleeping. It has happened on Friday night and for some reason on Motzei Shabbos as well. BH there have been no injuries. Are the Police waiting for there to be injuries before they actually do something?

  • Creating ahavas yisroel says:

    It’s the parents that need to be targeted.

  • Yitzchok says:

    They were caught and brought home?? Why not at least a fine?

  • jj says:

    You can sue the parents

  • shy says:

    for some reason the police are always parked at the church next door, why wouldnt they pay more attention to the actual blocks that have had these incidents?
    they should really be seen more often!
