Last Monday evening, October 8, police were called to take care of Ehud Halevi, a homeless man who was sleeping on the couch in the lounge of the Alternative Learning Institute for Young Adults (ALIYA), a synagogue and outreach center for troubled youth on East New York Ave. in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, reports the website CrownHeights.info.

One male and one female officers from the 71st precinct arrived and woke up Halevi, who appeared baffled by their arrival, and would not comply with their order to vacate the premises, insisting he had permission to be there.

The officers decided to arrest Halevi, who refused to be handcuffed and pushed the two cops off. In an instant, the male officer flew into a rage and began to beat up the half naked Halevi. The officer leaped on his defenseless victim, smacking him repeatedly.

Next the shirtless, already subdued Halevi was pepper-sprayed and hit with a truncheon by the female officer.

After about two minutes of out of control violence, the officers are joined by a squadron of cops who were finally able to handcuff the badly beaten man.

According to CrownHeights.info, a source inside ALIYA confirmed that Ehud Halevi indeed had permission to sleep on the premises, and had been a model resident for a month.

Now Halevi is being charged with assaulting a police officer, a felony charge that could put him in jail for five years, as well as four Misdemeanor charges and four violations, including trespassing, resisting arrest and harassment.

Halevi is now out on bail. ALIYA declined to comment on the disturbing affair.

  1. Louis Gavin says:

    A direct outcome of the growing "Israel did 9/11" conspiracy theory being disseminated on the Internet.

  2. Yori Yanover says:

    Not sure what you mean.

  3. Ben Shmuel says:

    These cops should be fired and have criminal charges filed against them.

  4. Ken Bright says:

    What about the A.A and Latino community. Do u honestly feel the same about them? I don't think so. If so, you would have your community protest against the injustice. Your a Rabin this is not new to you. Just saying!

  5. Sid Laufer says:

    who phoned the police?

  6. Joel Keller says:

    Hard to believe there are so many overweight police in this precinct. They need to work out more and eat less!

  7. Eran Spiro says:

    Mad Cops! These 2 give a bad name to the NYPD!

  8. Betty Seidner says:

    what low life person would call the police..

  9. This story makes me sick to my stomach and outraged! Gestapo behavior by the NYPD….These cops should be jailed, and if the NYPD accepts this behavior, watch out!

  10. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    had he been a muslim, there would be riots, obama would be shouting he "looks like my son," every FBI agent in the tri-state would be ordered to investigate, and the so-called demoslamist supporters of 'social justice' would be bombing US missions in condemnation. But he is only a Jew, not worthy of any protection in the demoslamist scheme of things. More evidence that the time has come for Jews to make sure a well oiled Glock is a wardrobe necessity.

  11. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Ken Bright Your bigotry is fairly obvious, in this, other posts, and on your FB page. YOU are proof that you CAN be Black AND a racist!!

  12. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    This is reminiscent of the Dave Dinkins days when a sharpton could instigate the murder of a Yeshiva student whose only crime was being a Jew, and then getting away with it because of who he knows.

  13. Ken Bright says:

    Of course you would think this way. Its real what I'm saying.

  14. JoAnn Morris says:

    Completely unbelievable! He has permission to stay there…did the police check? No! So they procede to beat a man, for what reason? Shameful!

  15. JoAnn Morris says:

    I noticed this too….all officers were fat asses!!

  16. Mair Karp Rubin says:

    This is sickening. I am a Jew myself. I feel that whatever race or religion, the cops should not be able to beat up a person who was innocently sleeping where he was told he could sleep. Why do the cops seem to focus on the "easy to subdue" people?

  17. ALIYA should certainly provide his defense. They failed him by not notifying authorities that they had given permission for someone to sleep there, perhaps an unpaid "guard". Who knows what tramau this man has already endured.

  18. Anonymous says:

    You don't push cops, no matter what! He should have asked to call the person who gave him permission to sleep there instead of being argumentive. Now he might have some free room and board ahead.

  19. Sharpton would agree that this is excessive force.

  20. Ephraim Bander says:

    Police brutality.

  21. Edward Lobel says:

    Your an idiot. You need to somehow blame Obama for everything that happens.

    What the police did here was disgraceful. It would do you and Jews all over Brooklyn to help hire a great lawyer to fight the charges and to get the cops thrown off the police force with no benefits and perhaps some jail time!

  22. Edward Lobel says:

    Joel Keller, looks like that! However, everyone of them was wearing protective clothing (bullet proof vests, etc.) which adds bulk. But they all do look like they need to go on extreme diets!

  23. Edward Lobel says:

    They need to be thrown off the force with no pensions and perhaps some jail time!

  24. Edward Lobel says:

    Roberta Rich Gornish – well said!

  25. Edward Lobel says:

    Davidcnl, did he really push the police? I think it was more like he was trying to get away. In any event the beating he took was totally uncalled for and the original 2 police persons need to be seriously repremanded if not fired!

  26. Edward Lobel says:

    I agree, I am not a big Sharpton fan, but do watch him occassionally on MSNBC and he has changed over the years!

  27. Myriam Obadia says:

    Ken, reporting on police brutality against a Jew doesn't mean one approves of police brutality against Latinos. BTW, even though it's not the case here, there are Latino Jews in case you didn't realize it

  28. Ken Bright says:

    There are MANY police that give the Police Dept. a very bad name, starting with the Police Commissioner.
