Some of the shattered car windows on Lee Avenue and Hooper Street in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.Brooklyn, NY - Approximately one dozen Williamsburg residents woke up this morning to discover their vehicles’ windows shattered by a pellet gun, police are trying to determine if the vehicles were selected randomly or if they were targeted by anti-Semitic vandals.

The overnight shooting spree began early this morning at 12:15 AM when Rabbi Aron Kraus of Williamsburg was traveling southbound on the Harlem River Drive from Monsey and an unknown individual in a dark colored SUV pulled up next to his car and shot out the windows with a pellet gun.  Just thirty minutes later, the first car windows were discovered shattered in Williamsburg and at least twelve cars parked on Lee Avenue near Lynch Street had been vandalized.

Police are still trying to determine if the shooting spree was the result of a hate crime and they are looking into a possible connection with two other anti Semitic incidents that occurred in recent days, with several newly painted swastikas discovered in both Borough Park and Kensington.

you need neighborhood watchmen, Shomrim. Are there Shomrim covering this area? They should have appropriate training and be armed with at the very least tasers and have arrest powers, handcuff, etc.

its never a hate crime when it involves Jews. if it were any other race it certainly would be one.
its always open season on Jews...no punishment just do as you want.
all the Rabbis carrying on about internet and making asifas should come out now and be heard about this before it escalates.
and please dont say that it happened becuase the Rabbi was out too late and should have been home.
More than likely he was coming from a wedding in Monsey at that hour.

NYPD only works the area in daylight hours, when they raise money for the bloomberg ticket quotas, unreported (by nypd) crime in the area is up by large numbers

Under what theory would someone know which cars or vans are owned by yidden versus goyim? Do you have some special gold star on your license plates in NY? Seems a bit paranoid to yell "anti-semitism" when some teenager with a bebe gun decides to shoot out a few windows. Out here they do the same with signs and mailboxes.

a lot of Jews have a sefer on their windshield or back window. some hav the hatzolah decal dangling from the inner mirror.
i think many racists are savvy enuf to know that the vas and emt plates belong to hatzolah members as well.
as i drive to and from the catskills on weekends i can probably guess 9 out of 10 correctly as to which vehicles are driven by Jewish people.

" be armed with at the very least tasers"

And what, in your estimation, should be the "very most"? A tactical nuclear weapon?

Gosh, you "ehrliche yidden" in NYC are really bloodthirsty.

I think you are right I'm one of the victims and as soon as I got into my car this morning I saw on my window a small note with a phone number I called happens it was a Jew boy i told him I found his number on my car he right away asked me if something happened to my car overnight. He said that a friend of his is able to repair it and sure enough after a few minutes his so called friend calls to ask me when he should come down. Although he insisted I refused and told him I have friend next door that can fix it for cheaper. I'm aware that there's an investigation on this matter and one of the officers claim they know who the guy is.

"a Jew boy"

Ribono shel ha'olam! As if it wasn't bad enough that the Nazis ימח שמם, and the Ku Klux Klan called us "Jew boys" we now have ONE OF OUR OWN using the same disgusting and insulting expression.

Some people either have very thick skins, or very short memories, or perhaps both.

The Jews in pre-war nazi germany had the same train of thought. They called the "Brownshirts" "Patriots", who have no intention of harming Jews in particular. And if they did, the Courts and the "Law" will protect them. What they forgot is, that the law is only as good as its executors. Of course, the present day situation in our dear country, The good Ole US of A can not be compared to pre-war germany, but we can't keep a blind eye to the (Potential) anti-Semites who target Jews.

I don't know about other areas of NYC. But in BP, 9 1/2 out of 10 Honda Odyssees are driven by Jews. Lately some Toyota Siennas, too.

Why Honda Odysses...they get terrible mileage and they are styled lot a box. There are much better options in SUVs and Vans.

This happened in Highland Park, NJ and it turned out to be a Jew. When he did it to a local Chabad House, they told the cops exactly who it was and they turned out to be right. Some crazy sh'mad. Hate to say it, but probably will be similar.
