Hikind Slams Manhattan DA Over Hate Suspect's Bail


Two judges and the Manhattan district attorney were too soft on a man suspected of anti-Semitic hate crimes, Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind said on Thursday.

David Haddad was released on his own recognizance by Kings County Criminal Court Judge Linda Poust-Lopez, while New York State Acting Supreme Court Judge Abraham Clott in Manhattan set bail at $2,500, which Hikind called " nothing short of shocking. Manhattan DA Cy Vance requested a bail of only $5,000. New Yorkers deserve an explanation."

Jewish Man Arrested For Swastikas, Harassment


A Jewish man from Manhattan was arrested for making anti-Semitic phone calls to his mother and other women, and is suspected of painting anti-Semitic graffiti in Brooklyn.

David Haddad, 56, was arrested Sunday for making anti-Semitic phone calls including a Dec. 11  call to his mother in which he said “All Jews should die and go to hell.”

He is also suspected of paining swastikas on apartment doors earlier this month, as well as a graffiti attack in the Midwood neighborhood over the weekend.
