What's going on with this anyways of knocking someone to the ground~? Is it gang related. The world news reported a bit ago that young Jewish women were knocked down on the Sabbath. Very sad.

Its pretty much covered in the POC forum.Orthodox Jews are a majority of the victims. Its not gang related nor do they gang up on a person. They just hit the person once without notice and then run off.

This is very sad as well. He didn't sound like a stand up guy, but nobody deserves what happened to him.

As information comes out, it sounds like it was a mob hit. He may have dressed as a Torah Observant Jew, but he didn't live as one. It's amazing that's it becoming more common that people coming from the Ultra Orthodox community are being arrested nearly on a weekly basis.

So being a victim of a mob hit means he wasn't an orthodox Jew?

Really? So who was arrested last week. Max Stark was never arrested. He was a typical NY landlord who had tenants who liked him and tenants who didn't, who bought buildings and resold. You'd think he planted vermin and drugs in his buildings, according to the papers. He was kidnapped and murdered. Shame on you for believing the NY sensationalist rags who compete against each other to never miss an opportunity to demean orthodox Jews--especially in the Sunday edition.

Him choosing which mitzvot to follow and which not to follow is the basis and not the hit. His past of being arrested or not is either luck, done to his fellow Jews who don't turn to the secular Police or simply paying off the right people. Living the life of a criminal and dying as a criminal has nothing to do with being Jewish. But if much of the hearsay comes out as truth, the damage to the image of community will have much more ramifications than his criminal activities alone.

BTW I do not read the NY newspapers as I don't live in NY. I read mainly the internet sites in Hebrew and in Yiddish. So shame on you for your statements on things I've not stated or linked too.
