Brooklyn Man Arrested, Charged With Hate Crime in Attack on Elderly Jewish Man

Brooklyn Man Arrested, Charged With Hate Crime in Attack on Elderly Jewish Man

“The way he jumped toward me, he was determined to kill. No question.”

Police arrested Oniel G. Gilbourne, 26, in connection with the attack on a 63-year-old Jewish man in August.

Gilbourne allegedly attacked Rabbi Abraham Gopin in Lincoln Terrace Park with a large rock.

The police charged Gilbourne with “assault as a hate crime and criminal possession of a weapon.”

Gopin spoke out after the attack. From PIX 11:

“The way he jumped toward me, he was determined to kill. No question,” Abraham Gopin said, adding that his attacker used the phrase “dirty Jews,” during the attack, which police are investigating as a hate crime.

Gopin was viciously attacked in Lincoln Terrace Park in Crown Heights as he was on his morning walk around 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

The Brooklyn rabbi lost two front teeth, suffered a broken nose and multiple lacerations to the face in the beating, police said.

“He came to me, fighting with hands,” Gopin said. “I was protecting myself. It was a fight for several minutes.”

This is what Gilbourne allegedly used on Gopin.

Gopin walks in the park almost every day. He does not know the attacker.

Councilman Chaim Deutsch said at this time last year, New York City saw “90 incidents of anti semitic [sic] crime.” 2019 has had 146 so far.

I’m sure A.O.C. is offended by this hate crime against an innocent Black man. She surely won’t take responsibility for her words causing the attack.

It’s all about the Benjamins, isn’t it?

Oniel? Irish gangster obviously.

There was a time way back at the turn of the previous century when the Jews would patrol their own neighborhood, and take care of things as was needed. Men traveling in pairs. They didn’t bother with asking the police for their help as they knew none would be forthcoming.

Perps generally did things ONCE.

Well. The important thing is they both vote Democrat…./

sickening–don’t care if he’s jewish/catholic/muslim/pagan, etc–he needed help and nobody did a damn thing–thank god do not live in new york or la(though have lived in both)–the idea that some punk can take a rock, whack a harmless man with impunity and then walk away unscathed is simply incomprehensible to me

lord–we have to look out for each other–we have to take action in the moment

Obviously the attacker was in dire need of reparations! Had he been given his, he would have bought the victim a cup of coffee and discussed rap music with him.

LoL. I know exactly what’s going to happen now. Gilbourne’s public defense attorney will claim his client suffers from “diminished mental capacity” (ie is retarded) and some liberal judge will place him in a psych institution for “evaluation”. Then once enough time has passed so that everything is pretty much forgotten he’ll be released, come in front of the judge who will drop all the charges and let him back out into society to wreck more havoc on innocent people. Rinse and repeat as many times as necessary. Guaranteed.

Black males comprise roughly six to seven percent of the population. Of course, young black males are an even smaller percentage of the population. The subset of criminal repeat offenders within this group means a tiny demographic slice of the population is committing a hugely disproportionate amount of violent crimes in this country.

Contrary to what radical professors and activists and their cohorts in the media and popular culture would have you believe, this demographic has no fear of “white supremacism” or the police.

They actually hold whites and the police in complete contempt.

Never forget Jessie Jackson’s Kinsley gaffe that he was relieved any time footsteps from behind at night were not those of young black males. An ugly truth, but the truth, nonetheless.

This currently dangerously dysfunctional demographic is enabled by the various aforementioned activists who turn reality on its head and insist “white supremacy” and the police are the real danger.

As long as this charade goes on, we will have this sort of greatly under-reported phenomenon.

We know that if a single act of a MAGA-hat-wearing white person attacking a black person occurred, everyone would hear the story. Jussie Smollett, anyone?

But you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone outside of the local area—who isn’t a news junkie—who is cognizant of this ongoing phenomenon of young black males attacking Jews.

The media just aren’t interested for obvious reasons. And so the problem will continue until a threshold of tragedy is surpassed, at which point the media will be forced into covering it … grudgingly, and only at the required bare minimum.

If you take such acts of dishonesty and their real-life consequences in helping to perpetuate a dangerous problem as evidence of disregard bordering on contempt for victims … well, it becomes arguable that people in your profession are acting as de facto enemies of the people.

I’m just saying it’s arguable. And the fact that it’s arguable means your profession has reached a very bad state.

How did I know before I saw the pic that “Brooklyn Man” wasn’t white.

Fake as Piltdown Man or Nebraska Man.

You should fear as “racism” and “anti-Semitism” have been overused and diluted and created a PC overlay.

The headline could not be “Black thug from Brooklyn…”.

And is it a hate-crime when on the SJW privilege scale someone with a 6 attacks a 9?

Will there be a call for banning rocks or investigating black supremacist hate and closing down social media sites where he may have posted something?

63 is not elderly nowadays.

He was in need of reparations, so he attacks a guy whose family probably came over way to late and from the wrong parts of Europe to have had anything to do with the slave trade.
