‘NYPD Rant’ on Hasidim

Nearly seven weeks after riots broke out in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, tempers are still simmering — and offensive words are still flying. A reader directed us to a website called NYPD Rant, on which police officers complained about the recent transfer (no one seemed to know if it was forced or voluntary) of the sergeant who arrested Arthur Schick , and the talk wasn’t pretty.

The first post sets the tone with the declaration, “This is why I hate the Hassid. I fantasize putting them in a steel cage with the terrorists.”
