Brooklyn, NY - In a strongly worded statement issued after a social media video  showed local residents harassing a tow truck driver and freeing a car about to be towed, the NYPD has said it will have zero tolerance for anyone who abuses any of its traffic agents.

According to reports in The Daily News (https://nydn.us/2QIVGn8), the incident took place at the corner of 44th Street and 15th Avenue on Thursday after an NYPD traffic agent hooked a minivan up to his tow truck and began filling out the paperwork on the vehicle. 

A group of passersby managed to detach the car from the tow truck, and video posted to social media shows the grey Honda Odyssey pulling away from the truck’s tow bars, with onlookers encouraging an unknown driver to quickly leave the scene.

The video shows the traffic agent disgustedly taking some of his equipment back from a Chasidic man who had removed it from the top of the minivan, and then being intercepted by two more men as he placed his hand on the driver’s side door of the vehicle, ostensibly to prevent him from leaving, the driver speeding away as soon as traffic cleared.

Sources told VIN News that the car was parked near a fire hydrant and had not allowed the15 foot clearance of the hydrant as required by law.

The New York Post (https://nyp.st/2QFVDbH) reported that the person who drove the car away was a member of Shomrim and not the owner of the vehicle.  A spokesperson for Shomrim told VIN News that Shomrim had nothing to do with the incident.

Voices can be heard on the video laughing and making negative comments to the traffic agent as he returned to his vehicle, one repeatedly saying “what a loser” while another intoned, “you are going to lose your job for acting like an (obscenity).”

Other comments had a racial overtone, with one man saying to the African American traffic agent, “You work in the wrong precinct. You should work in Harlem. They’ll kill him over there.”

The NYPD said that it had increased patrols in the area in response to requests from community leaders who said that illegally parked vehicles were creating traffic, hindering both area residents and emergency vehicles.

A statement issued by the NYPD read “We will not tolerate out traffic agents being subject to abuse in any form, not the least of which is the ugly example we see in this video… This is disgusting behavior against an officer who was doing his job to keep New Yorkers safe while exhibiting restraint and professionalism.”

According to News 12, a license plate check revealed a list of more then $1,000 in parking violations issued to the vehicle.

The NYPD said that it could not comment further on the incident at this time, but sources told VIN News that an arrest is expected within the next few days.

I cant recall anyone here bragging about Baltimore a City of a million+ who voted for H or Trump. I do remember many times a very EDUCATED person claiming that statistics showed that TORAH TRUE Jews in Boro Park voted for Trump . What I see on this video is HUGE Chilul Hashem. Calling them Torah True because of their Lvus instead of their actions is equally a Chilul Hashem. If your numbers are correct maybe yo need to clarify that 85% of B/W dressed hulligans with Pyes in BP voted for Trump.

Arch, how do you know that those were "Hillary voters" who broke that law in Baltimore? We have a secret ballot and hall of registered voters don't even vote.
The driver of that vehicle owes $1100 in tickets including a previous one for parking at a hydrant. After this incident I'm certain his car will be taken to the pound until he pays all.

The owner of the car, whom owes $1,000.00 for parking violations, should have his registration suspended, and should receive a hefty fine.

Yes its better. The problem is you have ZERO information if the Ehrliche voted for Trump or Hillary. (More likely they didn't vote at all) Its just as possible that the 15% H voters were the ehrleche. I doubt you have any exit polls where they asked if they were Ehrlach? So lets just live the Facts. NYC voted Democrats, Jews voted Democrats.

I'm not justifying this behavior at all but there's something called mitigating circumstances.
BP is an extremely congested neighborhood with more school buses and minivans than most other areas.
Parking is a nightmare, any time, all the time.
NYC is more extreme in enforcing parking rules than its enforcement of crime. Were they only to be as diligent in enforcing crime, NYC would have a far lower crime rate. That said, being to close to (not necessarily blocking) a hydrant whilst not justified isn't causing additional traffic unlike double parking, for instance. Issuing a summons for that should certainly suffice since these tickets are over $100, when paid. So why does the driver also need to incur a towing a charge of $200 - $400 on top of a summons.
These antiquated laws are obsolete in our current times and the City should have the decency not to harass its hard working citizens to the point where they react as this video shows.

It's time not to drive NYC residents insane, where a parking infraction causes a driver to not only get a summons (which is justified) but a towing charge on top of that, not to mention the inconvenience of getting your car back.

What disturbs me is that these ticket officers run around like a bunch of mice every Erev Shabbos and Erev Yom Tov knowing good and well that there is a true lack of parking just to cash in on the jewish community’s chesbon. While in other areas they are not seen anywhere when they have their Yom Tov.

Having a Ballance of 1,000.00 in parking violations for a vehicle that is mostly around the NYC area, is not uncommon at all! So what's everyone freaking out about? And 15 ft clearance for a fire hydrant? Used to be around 5 ft in the 80's and 90's. Those money grubbing Democrat low life lawmakers, made it so much more difficult to park, on top of an already difficult situation. Mamzeirim.

"stash store fronts" I dont think they were Jewish H voters. If you want to see Jewish Hillary voters just look up the exit polls in West Palm Beach and similar Heavy Jewish areas. I doubt that you will see any other single Jewish Democrat Groups behaving like on this video where your Frumme Jewish Trump voters riot. Its not a few. If you know BP there are 100s of people on the streets all the time. No one protested. This is not the first time.

You brag about Baltimore every day. You argue Hillary had more voters than Trump. You claim Trump voters are violent but Hillarys are civil.

Of course you brag about Baltimore.

Is this what you call violent? A few rouge Chasidim who never picked up a hand nor damaged anyone? This is what you call crazy violent trump voters? Then bh I am part of such a civilized group. You are an exaggerator. Halevi this should be the worse thing people did

So called frum ? As if these piety crimes make them not frum? Oy vey he owed 1100 on tickets unpaid? That's like the biggest crime out there? Wow what an averio? That's like chillul shabbos or being gay? One unpaid ticket of 300 can easily increase to 1100.

As a side note how much do blacks in furgeson owe in unpaid tickets? Oh when it pertains to blacks it's all police brutality.

If you are frum and keep the 3 big mitzvas that's ehrlich enough, I am glad to br part of anyone in that group. This tow truck incident wouldn't get coverage in furegeson or Baltimore bec it " masim bchol yom".

And drie kup let's be clear

A Jew has a chezkas kashrus. If you see them keep shabbos etc.., they have a status quo that they are kosher and ehrlich. So if you see a Frum Torah Jews his status quo is that he is also ehrlich. No questions asked.

You need to see him do a crime to assume he is unehrlich.

On the Other hand a yisroel mumar or not frum Jews wine is " yaan nesach" . You are forbidden do drink thier wine . They do not have a status of being ehrlich.
Although if it's " ltavion" vs " lahchis" its more lienant.

So Frum Torah Jews= ehrlich automatically. It's the same thing

So the Hillary voters you refer to instead promote laws that our Torah calls an obamanation. Sins tnat the city of Sodom was burnt to the ground for.

They are often the ones who most oppose frum
Jews and our beliefs such as building eriuvs in their community etc.,

A few hundred people mocking a tow truck guy is from the very small sins in our Torah.

I am proud to be part of the Frum Torah world and its support for trump. You can go join the Jewish moshkav zochers since they are your role models.

Now let me address your naive harry view of Judaism and labeling of others.

1) boro park is packed with Frum Torah Jews. You notice the few that break the law. It's a condensed neighborhood. Of course you'll find a few bad ones
2) Since it's such a condensed neighborhood it comes with a challenge. Furthermore we have bh large families and very hectic lives. That leads to us sometimes needing to step over the line and squeeze into parking spots that are a tiny drop over the crazy fire hydrant limits. As a father of small children I know the challenge of shlepping Kids, Groceries etc.. in this freezing cold around town.
3) Dina dmalchusa Dina has lots of loopholes. And it's surely not from the very big sins. It's a small sin.

Am I justifying illegal parking or driving like a Chaya? No. But let's not throw the community under the bus nor get so hyper and worked up over this very piety stuff. Understand the challenges and put yourself in their shoes.

Proud to be a frum
Torah Jew. And despite not being chasidish I am proud of my brothers in bp!

NYC is more extreme in enforcing parking rules than its enforcement of crime. Were they only to be as diligent in enforcing crime, NYC would have a far lower crime rate. That said, being to close to (not necessarily blocking) a hydrant whilst not justified isn't causing additional traffic unlike double parking, for instance. Issuing a summons for that should certainly suffice since these tickets are over $100, when paid. So why does the driver also need to incur a towing a charge of $200 - $400 on top of a summons.
These antiquated laws are obsolete in our current times and the City should have the decency not to harass its hard working citizens to the point where they react as this video shows.

It's time not to drive NYC residents insane, where a parking infraction causes a driver to not only get a summons (which is justified) but a towing charge on top of that, not to mention the inconvenience of getting your car back.

Why doews the driver..? Gaylem. He is endangering lives in case of a fire. He should be jailed for a few days costing him thousand in legal fees.

You brag about Baltimore every day. You argue Hillary had more voters than Trump. You claim Trump voters are violent but Hillarys are civil.

Of course you brag about Baltimore.

Is this what you call violent? A few rouge Chasidim who never picked up a hand nor damaged anyone? This is what you call crazy violent trump voters? Then bh I am part of such a civilized group. You are an exaggerator. Halevi this should be the worse thing people did

DEPLORABLES. Jews hurting other Jews.

So the Hillary voters you refer to instead promote laws that our Torah calls an obamanation. Sins tnat the city of Sodom was burnt to the ground for.

They are often the ones who most oppose frum
Jews and our beliefs such as building eriuvs in their community etc.,

A few hundred people mocking a tow truck guy is from the very small sins in our Torah.

I am proud to be part of the Frum Torah world and its support for trump. You can go join the Jewish moshkav zochers since they are your role models.

If you would be Educated in Judaism you would have learned in the Perek (Most 9 yer olds do) that we dont know which Mitzvah is Great or not.

Because he already had OTHER violations and already owed on over $1,000 on those tickets which he had not paid.

My son parked his brothers car at a NO standing zone. He got a $ 115 ticket which he probably deserved. Also his car was Booted. He went up to his apartment to get a credit card to call in his payment ,when he came downstairs he was already hooked on tow truck which cost him additional $ 180
So all together $475.00 for being in a NO standing zone, so then we all wonder why citizens get so upset when you see a car ticketed and towed

To Archy- I lived in Borough Park for five years, a long time ago (1516 42nd St). I have found memories of going with my Grandfather to a fish store on 13th Avenue, where I would see a large fish swimming in a tank. I also have fond memories of my Father taking me for a drive in his old Chevrolet (which had a running board). He attached a toy steering wheel, to the dashboard, and I would pretend to drive the car, while he was driving. My other Grandfather lived on 42nd St., between 14th and 15th Ave. My Aunt lived across the street. When I went back to visit the old neighborhood ten years ago, I couldn't even get out of my car, since there was no place to park. It was extremely stressful to drive in Borough Park, because of the reckless drivers. Last, I have nothing but contempt for drivers who block or park too close to fire hydrants. The Fire Department needs 15 feet clearance, in order to attach their fire hoses, in the event of a fire. Selfish, law breaking motorists block fire hydrants, as well as driveways. Don't give me that b.s. excuse about having hectic lives and large families. We all must obey traffic laws; otherwise, people should not drive, or own
cars.

what a silly comment. We know which averio is greater. We know that gay's are an obamantion. We know that an issur dorasa (gay intercourse) is worse than an issur drabanon (dina dmchlusa). We know that cetain sins are punishable by death penality ( like gays) vs sins that are not punishable at all like (dina dmalchusa.)

There are certain sins like chillul shaboos that render wine "yayin nescah". And certain sins do not.

Obviously it matters.

Of course al derech mussar one should never tred upon any mitzva or averio lightly.
henceforth perkai avos. But its severity differs.

In my State of North Dacota they would be jailed for 15 years. In fact in every Republican controlled States they would be jailed. In Iowa they put away a Yid for hiring immigrants for 27 years. This is why they live in NY and other liberal Cities. They are Koffu Tov voting for Trump.

Iowa was a Democrat run state at the time

Whilst foul mouths isn't justified, the answer is simple, very simple in fact, you see he caused the roller coaster of events here by hooking up the car to tow. Issuing a summons ($115) would have certainly sufficed, the driver wasn't, I repeat WASN'T blocking traffic. The 'goy', in this case was the aggressor and knew it whilst the driver and his buddies felt aggrieved.

The foul mouths part isn't justified but there is what's called mitigating circumstances which in this case applied to the driver and his buddies yet didn't apply to the 'goy' !!!

Is this any way for nice Jewish men (Chassidim) to act, towards a city employee trying to do his job? If this had occurred in Israel, the cops would not have been so nice, and scores of arrests would have been made.

You say the goy was the aggressor.
Interesting.
A man doing an honest day's work to feed his family is the 'aggressor.
So the person at the parking garage who takes your money is an aggressor?
The cashier that charges you for your groceries is an aggressor?
Your comment is illogical.

Here is a crazy, but 100% valid idea.
A Kol Koreh from the Rabbonim in Boro Park.
Encourage ride sharing and shitufim for cars.
Anybody that thinks that they need a car, needs a heter from the 'Vaad of Car Ownership'. The heter includes specifications of dimmensions.
Cars have become status symbols in the Charedi commenity. Not good.
Expensive cars are a waste of money. Not good. HaShem yisburach gave you the brucha of disposable income, who said you should waste it. Mosdos and Chesed orgs go unfunded while some members of the kehilla live like kings. Very wrong.
Has anybody acquiring an Escalade every asked their Rebbe if it is a good thing? Probably not.
Less cars on the road, less problems.
More people walking = safer streets and healthier men.
The RSO created this tzoras for us to learn something. Think about it.

To: #62- There should be no mercy shown to those who block fire hydrants, and endanger other Chassidim (including children), in the event of a fire. What chutzpah those low life residents had in harassing the tow truck operator, and using racial slurs. If you have a problem, take it up in court. Otherwise, don't violate traffic and parking laws. Incidentally, that mob showed no derech eretz.
