    1. What did that guy want, meshige, a free meal? Frightening that even good work cannot be done with a measure of safety and security. Hope they get that murderer.

    2. all those ppl asking if he was a yid……………….. which part of the article did you not understand or miss?????????? WHY THE HELL WAS CHESED SHEL EMES THERE IF HE WASNT A YID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just wonder soemtimes what these people are reading or thinking when they comment such stupidity or ignorance

    3. 15 well said ! and to those that say it was a chasuv family etc……. does it make a difference he was a jew thats the bottom line because if he wasnt a chashuv jew it would still be a major loss

    4. How many messages will Hashem have to send us IN ONE DAY to realize that we have to do Teshuva, this is getting out of hand , look what happened in Lakewood, now this sad story. HASHEM PLEASE H E L P

    5. I can’t belive this…..

      A Yid gets shot…… Uch n Vey. This is a hate crime. He was doing Hesed. Where will the Levaya be Brooklyn or Queens? and to which shule or ruv did he go to? is he from brooklyn or queens

    6. this should be a hate crime.were is al sharpton? were is jesse jackson? were is jeramiah wright? were is barack hussein obama?
      is jewish blood this cheap. I urge all to call city hall and ask them!!!

    7. Where are Fat Al Sharpon, Charles Barron etc… on this terrible killing…he was there delivering to one of their own. There is NO and I repeat NO hope for that low level of person that can do such a thing to another. If found the killer should be turned over to the Russian community for a little talking too…they will know what to do and say.

    8.
