Reply to: African-American Student Says Chasidic Men Attacked Him

Theres not a single group of people anywhere who have never been found guilty of violence and crime. None of us are totally innocent . Now with that, there is no excuse for even ONE bad episode and I trust the truth will surface. Statistically though, unfortunately, for whatever reasons, way way way more Blacks have been accused and been found guilty of violence than Hasids. It is what it is. The statistics are so different, the gap so large, no human of sound mind will excuse it away by saying Hasidim have connections that Blacks don’t have or any other nonsensical excuse such as that people are fearful of reporting Hasidim for crimes they’ve commited, and therefore Hasidim get away with stuff more and are actually equally violent so statistics don’t count, etc. Not with statistics what they are.

All Yeshivas should offer self-defense classes. We need to protect ourselves. If we don't it will only get worse.

The only reason I stumbled on this article is that I am researching a family name that is the Hebrew word for "brother" and saw a NYT wedding announcement with a phonetically identical name for an Igbo young man. Interesting coincidence.

Thank you and kol hakavod to JW and Hella Winston for probing and exposing the truth, and to Detective Litwin for telling it. The KCDA "Rackets Division" was all-too true to its name; its treatment of child-abuse advocate (and victim's father) Sam Kellner on behalf of favored-defendant Lebovits amounts to "racketeering."

If your basis is observance of Conservative halacha, actually there are no Conservative Jews.
