The counts are fourth-degree crimes. A related bias intimidation count was filed in New Brunswick and by the Rutgers University Police Department.

This is terrible! I pray to G-d that this man doesn't have children! L-rd only knows what he taught them while growing up! That's the thing w\racists like this guy... they give birth to a whole new generation of racists & bigots & it makes it that much harder to eradicate such behaviors from our society!

He's trashing the Jews & vandalizing their property.... but at the same time, just take one look at the guy, and you can tell he's crazy & out of control! But he's complaining about the Jewish people?! Pa-leaze!

I would MUCH rather live next to a nice Jewish family, than some crazy racist like him! People like him *belong* locked up, before they G-d forbid hurt people or create more damage!

And I certainly don't want my children around them!
