Here’s a video that was posted on Youtube that documented a firsthand example of the kind of vigilante “justice” a few Hasidic Jews have been enforcing on cyclists in Williamsburg and other areas in which they live. Rafael Huerta was riding his bike home when a Jewish man accused him of slamming into the man’s car, though it’s unclear in the video whether contact was actually made. It looks to me like Huerta was riding safely and near the shoulder of the road, and for what it’s worth, he can be heard saying he “tapped” the car but that no dent was made. The video perpetuuates a bad image of a generally peaceful Jewish sect.
Do you feel that we (or anyone) should act this way?.leave a comment.
