  1. It’s always interesting to discuss a wider perspective on news issues. However, a violent crime against an innocent person remains a violent crime against an innocent person. To the best of my knowledge, resentment and/or anger against others including government or “successful Jews” is not an acceptable legal defense against a charge of assault or attempted murder.

  3. Tired of the African American excuses for violence against persons that are contributing members of society.

  4. Everyone has the free will to be a contributing member of society. G-d plans your life but u choose your path good or evil. The family unit here in America is at risk. Single mothers with children from different men whom aren’t supporting or involved in the nurturing of their kids. No morals, lack of foundation. Parents need to be involved in everything your kids do. Be nosey ask questions set rules lead by example. Kids need to know they’re destined for a better life no matter where or whom you are. No excuses for assaulting another human being for accomplishing their goals. G-d blesses everyone.

  6. I am happy to hear the African American leaders are taking a position against this horrible act, but it is really time for the African American community to look in the mirror and develop a strategy for themselves to emulate all of the immigrant groups who have come to the US and succeeded in one or two generations. How many generations since they were slaves? If you feel a sense of entitlement instead of responsibility you will never succeed and the result is this culture of violence and self defeat.

  7. This game is going on all across America and is being perpetrated against both Jews and white non-Jews. In 99 percent of the cases, the perpetrator is black. Purely and simply, it's because these are racial hate crimes and should be prosecuted as such. This idea that these kids are disadvantaged is a myth. In many cases, these kids are just out for kicks and they're racially profiling their victims. They're not sitting around discussing how the average Jewish family lives better than their own. The only thought put into this crime is the colour of the victim's skin. The media has been glossing over the race of the perpetrators for too long, and it's time to call it like it is. It's also time for the leaders of the black community to stand up and demand an end to this dangerous and disgraceful practice. If this were the reverse and whites were targeting blacks, there would be outrage and saturation media coverage. People are sick and tired of black Americans getting a pass on outrageous behaviour, simply because they're black. If this practice is allowed to continue without some serious consequences, it could start a violent race war. Afterall, that's what 0bama has been aiming for since he got elected.

  12. The headline is misleading. You don't know that the Eliot Spitzer that posted on Cumbo's FB page is the same fellow as the former NY governor or a different fellow with the same name or an alias. Former Governor Spitzer isn't from Brooklyn either like that FB poster. The posting is available on Cumbo's FB page your link to it worked. You have to read her entire piece. Understanding underlying causes may help craft effective solutions, but tachlis these perps have to be brought to justice.

  13. why not blame parents for failing to teach their children MORALITY AND RESPECT- HOW CAN THEY ASK FOR SAME IF THEY THEMSELVES HAVE NONE FOR OTHERS? Look at how the Blacks live peacefully and equally with the Jews in Israel. Obviously, it is an American failure of the black community and not anyone elses so they should stop blaming others.

  14. The issues presented here are much more complex than posted. The real issue goes back at least 2000 years to the time of the Romans. Throughout 2000 years of history, every nation and empire on earth were afraid and still are afraid of the Jews. Ever since God gave the Torah to the Jewish People at Mt Sinai revealing the truth about life, people have been afraid of the Jewish People. So much so, that after one Holocaust after another, no one ever had the capacity to wipe out the Jews. Fast forward to today and we have the Black community. These people cannot figure out how to succeed in life. Even with a 50% Black President they cannot figure out what life is all about. So instead of getting an education, or learning a trade, they attack what they consider a weaker person, that of the Jew. One day these Black criminals will learn that no one can beat the Jews into submission, and for them to succeed in life, they will have to do what the Jews do, study, learn, and accomplish.

  15. I included the link to her cached FB page so that people could read it, of course the full context is important.

  16. This woman is an enabler. She is telling the Black youth that they are victims and thus not responsible for their behavior.

  17. Crime is crime. Deal with it. Don't make innuendos in the name of the criminals.

  18. I'm glad to hear that the people in Crown Heights are speaking up. I feel certain that the folks in the video are sincere, and will try to squash the situation now not later.

  19. Is she admitting that some of her constituents are ignorant bigots? Yet how have we not assimilated? This was a back handed compliment=insult.

  20. Lauri Cumbo’s brains is pretty twisted. Is this how she is starting her political term representing the jewish folks in her district? Blame the victim? Blame the jews? My message to you is, you will be up ****s creek very fast, if your incompetent just get out if dodge.
