  1. Great story TLS. Maybe next time you could ask the Captain the following:
    Are there any suspects?
    Is there a motive?
    Was the weapon recovered?

  2. Although you refuse to post my comments on other stories, thank you for updating us on this one. This girl is as much of a victim to what Lakewood’s become as the rest of us. And even though the none of the community will offer any compassion or sympathy for this girl and instead will waste their words squabbling- I hope and pray that she makes a speedy recovery. Because this could have happened to anyone’s child and I hope anyone reading this thanks your lucky stars it wasn’t yours..

    Your comment comes across just the same as all the others whom you say “waste their words squabbling”. Why do you accuse “the community” of lacking in sympathy for this victim?? Lets be very frank over here. Yes, this can happen to anyone’s child. That is why “the community” bring up their children in a very refined manner. We pray three times a day that they should not stray from the proper ways of their forefathers.

    While eulogizing a FIFTEEN year old shot and killed in Newark Pastor Ron Christian brings up Leiby Kletzky, the Jewish boy who disappeared and was murdered that week in the Hasidic section of Brooklyn.

    “They had 30,000 people out looking for that kid,” he says. “The whole community, out for one kid. And here we are burying our kids left and right. What’s wrong with us?” And he goes even further but I’ll be censored.

    The bottom line is that I honestly feel terrible for this girl. However, I only hope that she did not wander into practices or areas she shouldn’t have that may have been a cause for this horrible crime.

    Here’s the link so you can read for yourself why the default reaction of “the community” is to critiscize the slumlords……. It is because these shootings consistently happen in the same areas. WHY???
