How many frum men from Israel begging on streets of Brooklyn are U.S. citizens? Why is overt racism in frum world is widespread and becoming more accepted in our times? Haven't we learned the lessons of Holocaust that our intolerance towards others ends up biting us?

I was not there and have no information about this incident.
Ultimately, some of these incidents are because people cross in the middle of the block or without the light. Older individuals and those with canes or walker also do this because it is harder to walk to a corner.
It is the driver's responsibility to be careful but my belief is that pedestrians and bikers need to follow the rules.

I have noticed that many streets do not have enough lighting. even with lamp posts the lighting is diminished when the trees are in full bloom. contact your local elected officials and tell them if you see a block that has more trees blocking lighting. if you see a block that needs a traffic light , petition your local elected for that too!! speak up , get others to do the same.

Why is it that every comment of yours contains derogatory remarks about frum
Jews ? "Enlightened," my foot.

After driving in Brooklyn and in other neighborhoods, and upstate too, I am sadly never surprised at pedestrians being struck by cars. Doesn't make it less tragic but I've seen people cross carelessly, between cars without regard to traffic, or to check if they have right to cross!

Good it wasn't a frum Yid who was the driver. The hit and run frum victim on Coney Island Avenue near Pomegranate was never captured.

I was also relieved to see that it wasn't one of ours' on the way to Selichos. Too many times I see frum drivers running solid red lights endangering our children and elderly.

Just look at the youtube of Munkachz ( circa 1923-1934 ) where the rebbe railed
against those Zionist youth, seeking to build a home for all jews. Those youth went on to live in Eretz Yisroel and fought with the haganah and Irgun, while many of the rebbe's chassidim stayed and perished in the holocaust.

How many times do the chassidim of the Toldos Aharon rebbe need to stone people who dress differently while the rebbe comes to shnorr gelt in communities filled with people they would stone.

It is the hypocrisy that is biting us, not our differences.

I would like to have all illegals, including the shnorrers who beg at our shuls, to be deported if they are overstaying visas or violating the terms of their visas. Mexican or Israeli, you break our immigration laws, you become a nuisance, or G d forbid, you commit a crime, you are out the door.
That said, the reason we are concerned with illegal immigrant crime is because it is a plague. You want cheap labor for your local pizzeria? Fine, but be prepared for the consequences of a population of males with no ties other than money to the community.
I scrub my own toilets, thank you very much.
That said, RIP, the victim.
