  1. They’re not suspects! When you have a known person who you suspect might have done a crime you have a suspect. When you have a crime and you have no idea who did it Just some blurry surveillance video you don’t have a suspect.

  2. You are using the word “Suspect” in your headline incorrectly. Suspect, as a noun is defined as “a person suspected of a crime”. Therefore we say so and so is a suspect. But when we are referring to the perpetrator of the crime, it is “persons” or “thieves” smashing the Pushkes. When they will be located or identified, that person will become a suspect.

  3. @yankel I think the reason they wrote “Suspects” is because the LPD knows who the perps are, as per what I heard this is the same group of kids that have been terrorizing our town for the past while

  4. These people are clearly familiar with the shul. They know where the puskas are, what is in them and where to run when they hear noise. That should narrow down the suspect pool considerably.

    • I’m not sure why you come to that conclusion – you only see in this video from the point where they already entered the room and located the pushka – it’s pretty obvious what the box hanging on the wall with a padlock is. How do you know that they didn’t first walk all around for many minutes looking for charity boxes? And when they heard someone coming of course they would run, and the obvious place to run is the nearest door that probably has a clearly marked, lit up EXIT sign above it! Even someone in the building for the first time could have done everything you see in this short clip of video.
