    Sorry to hear the bad news. I, myself, was crossing the street with the light and in the crosswalk by President (crossing North on President) and Schenectady Streets and a car came within 3 inches of me as it turned right onto President. I quickly noted the license plate and had it in mind to make a complaint.
    Refuah shelaima! Painful! Freightening!
    According to a AAA study most motorists don’t signal when they turn.
    Much of the reason for these incidents, plus the violence, is because people don’t fear the government. Does the government deserve to be feared?

    THAT CORNER SEEMS TO HAVE ALOT OF ACCIDENTS. PEOPLE CAN’T RELY ON THE LIGHTS, YOU MUST WATCH THE CARS EVEN WHEN IT’S YOUR LIGHT. ESPECIALLY FOR TURNING CARS.
    WHAT REALLY SHOCKS ME IS TO SEE LITTLE KIDS ( THAY MUST GROW ON TREES, A DIME A DOZEN) OF 5 – 6 YEARS OLD CROSSING STREETS ON THEIR OWN PUSHING A STROLLER WITH AN EVEN YOUNGER SIBLING IN TOW.

    #1. How are they doing?
    #2. WHY NO SUMMONSES?? Let me guess…the driver’s Black! Doesn’t matter he got a twofer!

    Tishrei’s over, folks, & so is any police presence. Watch out…we’re all fishfood for the thugs out there.

    Incident #2. Anyone else counting?

    when’s the next rally, or is everyone sleeping off the Mashkeh indefinitely?

    visiters? i hope they are taken care of at KCH. most paitents at that hospital wait about a day or two before a doctor will see them, only to be discharged. the ER there is a zoo. i hope they speak english and have relatives who will look out for them.

    The Couple are not visitors, but live in Crown Heights, and were knocked to the ground by a careless and callous driver.

    They are B"H recuperating, but would very much appreciate that if there are any eyewitnesses – either reading this, or that you know of – they please leave a message at: 347-624-6215

    Thank you! Brocho v’Hatzlocho!
