Shomrim Settle a Dispute Involving a Knife Wielding Person

CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn [CHI] – At around 12:15 this afternoon a dispute broke out inside the Rimon Café on Albany Avenue between the cashier and a former employee over money the owner allegedly owed him, the dispute quickly escalated when the cashier asked him to leave and come back when the owner was in.

More in the Extended Article.

He ran into the kitchen and grabbed a large knife and pointed it at the cashier who called immediately called Shomrim and 911. Shomrim arrived on scene first and talked him into dropping the knife and stepping out of the store to talk and try to resolve the dispute, while police arrived on scene and began questioning him.

The employee apologized for his outbreak and told the cops that he would return when the owner was there. There were no arrests made.

In case of an emergency never hesitate to call 911 and Shomrim at (718) 774-3333 24/7!

    “Shomrim arrived on scene first”

    Why is shomrim the first ones on the scene every time a crime occurs? It makes you wonder….

    NO ARRESTS? Man — what is this? Favouritism for a Mexicali Chichi? Cmon… In Canada, the Toronto Police or the RCMP or the O.P.P. would have for sure handcuffed this guy and taken him into custody, in a locked steel room for questioning for at least 6-10 hours… This is ridiculous! No wonder these idiots are freewheelin’ willies…

    WHY WAS THERE NO ARREST? THREATENING AT KNIFEPOINT SHOULD BE TREATED AS SERIOUSLY AS JUMPING A TURNSTILE. THIS IS WHY THE CRIME RATE IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD (BY GOYIM &, L’HAVDIL, BY YIDDEN) IS CREEPING UP – WITH THE EMPHASIS ON “CREEP.” WE LET THE CREEPS GO, SO THE REAL BAD GUYS SEE THAT YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING HERE.

    WHAT, NEXT TIME HE COMES, IT’S GONNA BE WITH A GUN… WHAT NEXT? WHY WOULD THYE JUST LET HIM GO?

    Maybe the cashier didn’t wanna press charges, In which case no arrest would be made

    Regardless if he did or did not want to press charges in such a case the state (NYPD in this case) is required to take the perpetrator into custody. If one murders an innocent civilian in the middle of the street with only 1 witness which for whatever odd reason isn’t prepared to press charges the cops are obligated to make an arrest and it’s up to the DA`s office to prosecute. (People vs. defendant. In which the government is the plaintiff so to speak.) A weapon remains a weapon! The flights that Rachmono Li`tzlan were flown into the twin towers were hijacked with nail filers and clippers. That man should have been arrested!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    After speaking to some of these “thorns” the last few days,
    I have come to the conclusion that the
    Only Avara/sin of Shomrim is that they care.
    As a group and as individuals each member gives all they got so we can sleep better at night.
    Great job Shomrim, Continue what you are doing despite those that are trying to destroy OUR community (they are just playing there rules in history, I.e. Dashon & Averom, Areve Rav, etc…) stand strong, in the end of the day we all know that you have our backs and you are there when you are needed.

    I can personally attest to the dedication of shomrim members, for I am related to a member and lots of times when we have family events I see him leave the event just to help another jew, whether its a real emergency or merely someone got locked out of his car what-ever it is.

    Even when we were kids I remember that on the School bus the Hershkop’s always made sure that the weaker kids had seats, they would always protect the weak agents the bullies. They are the bullies bully and that’s a compliment.
    I see from the members that join Shomrim that they are in Shomrim only because they care and want to help and not the other way around (that because they are in Shomrim they help). If g-d forbid I am in trouble I hope and pray that they are near by (whether it be on the street of unfortunately in 770, too many times we hear stories of people witnessing acts of violence agents a fellow Jew and no body help him out, B”H that’s not the case with Shomrim). When A Yid is in trouble you must help!

    [Side note: Although I am not officially part of Shomrim, I do have a friend who is and once in a while I will give him a call and patrol with them. You should try it for you self.]
