“It was almost inevitable that the furor against police officers that’s been whipped up over the Brown and Garner deaths would end in some person or persons deciding that killing a cop would be just the thing. Whether Brinsley was crazy or not—and he may have been—and a lone wolf or not, even crazy people can be sparked to violence by an atmosphere of orchestrated hatred.” (legal insurrection.com)

It was Five years ago on this day, the 22nd of Kislev, just a day after the Alter Rebbe celebrated his Didan Notzach, that the Shomrim Six were vindicated from the vicious blood libel and Messirah against them by the Meshichist Mossrim faction.
Shomrim did not celebrate the verdict as a victory, but as a salvation. The motto of cases conclusion rested in the song which is sung at Yud Tes Kislev Farbrengens around the world, “Podo Beshalom Nafshi… Anshei Domim Umirma Lo Yechtzu Yemaihem” ([g-d] has redeemed my soul in peace… men of blood and swindle may their days be halved).
First of all, I would like to commend the New York City Police Department for a job well done.
The Bochurim, the “Heroes”
These Bochurim (bystanders) that tried to intervene by attempting to to talk the attacker down, all the while standing near feet away, are no “heroes”. What they did was dangerous and plain and simply stupid!
Potential jurors were once pulled from voter registration lists and you could avoid serving simply by choosing not to vote. Things have sinced changed, however, and whether or not you vote has little impact. Nowadays, procuring a state-issued ID or driver’s license, buying a home, and/or filing tax returns can get you on the list as well. Basically, if you’re an active citizen of the United States you can expect to be called someday.
