police arresting Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn New York A Hachnosas Sefer Torah in Boro Park on Sunday afternoon ended in chaos and at least one person arrested.
Sources tell that at around 6:00PM, hundreds of people began a procession accompanying a new Sefer Torah to the Dzebo Bais Hamedrash. There was apparently no permit issued for a street closure, and police responded due to massive traffic in the area.
As can be seen in the video footage, numerous NYPD vehicles responded to the vicinity of 16th Ave & 51st street and ordered the pedestrians onto the sidewalks in an attempt to open the street.
Several individuals intentionally ignored police, prompting officers to get out of their vehicles and physically move the protestors. At least one person was arrested.
The NYPD called for a Level 1 Mobilization Response, prompting dozens of officers to respond.
It should be noted that there are no legitimate permits issued for Hachnosas Sifrei Torah. A phone call is made to the Community Board who coordinates it with Shomrim and informs the NYPD of the event. In this particular incident, the Community Board was never contacted, for unknown reasons.
A group of around 100 teenagers staged a small protest outside the 66 Precinct on 16 Avenue, while community activists worked behind the scene to defuse the situation.
The man was released at around 9:30PM as the crowd cheered and sang as he exited the Precinct.
the angry group of pedestrians appallingly began chanting “Nazi” at the NYPD Officers – once again demonstrating that many members of the Hasidic community haven’t a clue who the Nazis were. These people are simply trampling on the names of the 6 million Kedoshim HY”D. The people quick to use the word Nazi today, have obviously no clue – just as an example – what took place in just one day at Treblinka subscribe for new video updates
