On the ‘Jew Riot’

Ben Smith points us to a sober, matronly moral accounting of the whole affair at Orthomom.

Here’s my question: When did the Orthodox and Hasid world of Borough Park get on the wrong side of the law? When, and how (politically) did these people who were so well-in in the Giuliani administration become targets of the police?

And, are we aiding and abetting the forces of discord if we point you here? NYPD Rants may or may not be a blog by police officers. But reading it gives you a sense of how they feel on the job about different communities, Orthoworld included. It isn’t pretty.

Sample:

They stink and they all look the same..am I profiling? you bet!!!!
