  1. tehilim? for mace? please. It was a horrible thing to happen to someone and I hope they catch the man and prosecute, but don’t go to extremes.

  2. Someone went Postal in ShopRite, say it aint true. Guess you can’t even go food shopping in Lakewood anymore either. Good thing I order my groceries on line and have them delivered.

  3. we need to ban mace!
    we need stiffer mace laws on the books!
    was the mace carried in a concealed fashion?
    if it wasnt for mace, this would have never happened! blame mace!
    mace burns people- not people!
    we should make a limit on how much mace one can have!

    ….. sounds familiar?

  4. I just heard that Obama has called for yet another summit, this one to be called IBOMS ( International Ban On Mace Summit) , they’re still looking for a venue as many countries have signed on to this ban. One likely country being thrown around (no pun intended) as a possiblity is Japan. I guess we will wait and see how this pans out.

  5. why would you say tehillim for something like this. i don’t believe the person attacked with mace was jewish. and mace is i believe a kind of chemical that stings you when sprayed. it’s meant to hold off an attacker so you can get away. but it’s sad that it was used on someone who works in shoprite especially in public where others can see. i hope that person pays for what he did and he should be ashamed of himself.
