NYPD’s Relentless Persecution of Shomrim Escalates


Posted on: www.crownheights.info May 18, 2011

CROWN HEIGHTS [CHI] — After more than a year of relentless persecution by officers of the 71st Precinct against members of the Crown Heights Shomrim, they have apparently decided that this is still not enough, and have since escalated their efforts, launching a coordinated assault on the volunteer security organization.

Since the beginning of 2010 marked Shomrim vehicles have been the target of a steady stream of citations by various agencies, from traffic cops to police officers. Now one officer – who has himself written tens of such violations – took it to the next level by pulling over a marked Shomrim scooter.

Officer PO Sanz – [Officer ID 934276] – who is assigned to the 71st Precinct, has written Shomrim over 50 parking summonses – most of which were without merit, and have been dismissed. Today, officer Sanz pulled over a Shomrim Scooter and wrote the driver three tickets – all of them without any conceivable merit.

“This marks a new record for the police department in their ongoing war against Shomrim” said a Shomrim coordinator; “we never asked for special treatment, all we want is equal treatment, and this is pure vindictive targeting” he said.

“Nowadays we need to fear the cops more than we do the criminals we come into contact with” added another Shomrim volunteer.

When asked what Shomrim intends to do to protect themselves, they said “whatever it takes.” in the meantime, complaints have been filed with the Internal Affairs Bureau and Civilian Complaint Review Board.

NYPD does this on orders from the people [Mossrim] at the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc.

Thats why when people complain against the police, the police run to the CHJCC and cry foil, then the CHJCC comes out with an edict (taking away mine and your civil rights).

The CHJCC has an agenda to destroy anything they can’t control.

  1. Mosser Eli Poltorak Answers The Million Dollar Question: The Agenda – What Is It? Says:

    A few days ago, 1bigpotatohead presented a question to the general public that went as follows…

    What could possibly be the big agenda by NOT sucking up to the police?Can someone out there explain this to me, explain this to ALL of us, because right now, I feel like there are those (like COLLIES.COM and those that Employ them like the CHJCC) that are insulting our intelligences.
    Come on, explain what the “master plan” here is, what are the gains, what are the losses, who wins what and who losses what?

    We have a new millionaire amongst us. You all might remember him for the nutritious lawsuit against the Rabonim and many Gemachim, some of you might remember his as the loser who lost his bid for re-election for Vaad (on the basis of being a mosser].

    His name is Elie Poltorak and he has answered the million dollar question and it goes as follows…

    Having served on the CHJCC, I can tell you that all complaints of police misconduct are taken very seriously and addressed at the highest levels of the 71st Precinct, Brooklyn South, 1 Police Plaza, or the commissioner’s office. If the NYPD doesn’t address our concerns, there is certainly a time and a place for protesting loudly to the media etc., but B”H, for the past 3 years we have had incredible cooperation and sensitivity from the NYPD. In order to keep things moving in the right direction, we must show hakoras hatov and address the issues that inevitably do crop up (such as the bochurim who received summonses) quietly, behind the scenes. By crying wolf and making a scandal out of every mishap, the other websites and Shomrim are endangering this relationship that is so crucial to our community. Have we already forgotten where we were 4 short years ago?

    One more point: Why is it that the very same troublemakers, who complain loudest about the police now, were the ones who stood up for the NYPD when the community was under siege and the police turned their backs on us? Where were they when Barry Sugar and other yungeleit (myself included) led protests against the NYPD?
    Might it be that they have their own interests at heart? Is it because the previous commander let them park their scooters wherever they wanted as he let the community bleed?

    I for one applaud the current command of the 71st precinct for putting an end to special treatment for a violent group of troublemakers who refuse to submit to any authority and think they’re above the law. We should not let them drag down the whole community.

    Yep, just as 1bigpotoato head pointed out a few weeks in…

    A List Of Shomrim/Hershkop Crimes: It Gets Worse By the Day.

    Notice: Crime #4: Scooooters

    The six Shomrim members [known as the Shomrim Six] who stood trial and persuade Justice up until the end, went on to be turned into martyrs who suffered a horrendous crime at the hands of evil yeshiva students who wished them only bad… (My hands are shaking as I’m about to write this horrible crime)

    …They even named a patrol vehicle after them.
    Shomrim Scooter
    We can’t have people fighting against Mesira, what will Crown Heights be without our Mossrim. What will happen to Crown Heights if we have a proper Beis Din, can you imagine law and order, we can’t have that. And especially imagine what terrible effect that would have on our youth. And what type of signal are these scooters sending to our children?
    We must do something to stop these criminals before they eat our kids!

    Darn right, Elie has hit the hammer right on the nail, it’s all about the scooters, who do these Hershkops/Shomrim think they are, do they think this is still America, are they that naive to think they can drive those scooters wherever they want? What is this America over here? We can’t have Scooters parked all over the place! It’s not right that the Shomrim have so many scooters! Who do they think they are?

    Let’s get rid of the scooters and crime will go down!

    Let’s get rid of the scooters and the Messiras will stop!

    Let’s get rid of the scooters so people like Elie Poltorak can sleep at night! (Elie has nightmares of scooters chasing him down Kingston Ave.)

    On a serious note- Just for the record: When Inspector Vaga was around, Shomrim had only two scooters. When the new inspector came, Shomrim only had four. And about Poltoraks re-writing history, Search inspector Vega On CH.INFO to see the actual Facts of the matter.

    I have to say that your community does NOT have the right to use our NYPD vehicle colors, you are security NOT POLICE. We new yorker welcome you, BUT!!! you are NOT police and should change the colors of the vehicle and why do you have red lights on your vehicles? thats only for police…security vehicle use yellow lights – join the NYPD aux-police thats a better way of serving your community.
    shomrim and other jewish security companies need training and city security oversite as well. “you are not the police and don’t have the right to park your security patrol vehicles where you like or take red lights when responding to calls – your the eyes and ears for the police in your area and should not be making arrest as you have no police powers, we see that jewish doctors have private vehicles(vas)that can use red lights to respond to medical calls…what gives you that right? how about black doctors and spanish doctors whom are also on call but! don’t have red lights in their vehicles – play by the rules, the police issue you tickets because you are not police vehicles and SHOULD NOT park your patrol(not police)vehicles as such. could I park that way? “NO” Anyone can make a citizens arrest. one more time…you are not a police unit and do not have the right to have or even use the colors of the NYPD for your security patrol vehicles. enough is enough with this security outfit running around this area as if they are the police – ticket them non-stop til they learn that this is America and most of all NYC, NOT A foreign country. We have the rule of law here. love it or leave it.

    • WhoIsShmira? Says:

      Nice rant, but you fail to mention anything illegal.

      You keep stating “thats not right”, who the hell do you think you are to decide “whats right or not right”?

      Whats your phone number? I want to call you the next time I or anybody I know needs assistance.

      I’ll post your number on-line for all to see, after all your such a caring guy, you surly would love to give a helping hand.

      Notice: WIS did not spend the time correcting the facts you simply have wrong.
