    If you read the charges..you will note very clearly that "hate crime" is not included. And because the AADL does not stand a chance of getting donations from the small Chassidic community here, rest assured this won't even show up on their radar.

  2. Muriel Coudurier-Curveur says:

    The AADL doesn't get to make that determination anyway. Don't assume they have more power than they do

  3. Why are hate crimes not prosecuted?

  4. Roc Diaz says:

    the only safe place for a jew is israel. come home

  5. Anastasia Klein says:

    isn't it "special" that these Hispanice who may be illegals are yelling at Jews to back somewhere? These toad-ugly pendejos need a visit from the JDL..the ones who train to fight back. Let these pieces of roadkill go back to Costa Rica or Mexico and rot.

  6. The reason the 'hate crime' is not prosecuted is because it's not against an islamic….

  7. They're probably upset because they couldn't obtain jobs sweeping that same parking lot. Time to clean house my friends….

    This is what we see in California nearly on a daily basis. These "thugs" are most likely illegals that were allowed to roam freely in the US. Just watch how we in California have to deal with losing our rights as citizens so that these illegals – which is a crime – will have more rights and be able to utilize our education institutions freely while our legal children will have to pay through the nose. Stop the appeasement.
