New York Post article about Tiffany Harris arrest

This story was updated on Dec. 31 with details of an additional anti-Semitic attack.

On December 24, a group of men in Brooklyn attacked an Orthodox Jewish man. Surveillance video shows that one of the men was first to hit the Jewish man with a chair. Then, several men chased after the Jewish man and punched him.

Below is the original article.

A New York woman accused of assaulting three Jewish women, beating them in the face and the head, has been arrested for another assault. Police say Tiffany Harris punched another a 35-year-old woman who was walking down the street in Prospect Heights Sunday. It happened shortly after Harris shortly after was released from jail without bond for the earlier assault.

F— you, Jews!

According to the New York Post, the 30-year old Harris already had “an open harassment and assault case on the Brooklyn docket from November 2018,” and received no jail time last month for a case of felony criminal mischief in Manhattan, “a case for which she had repeatedly failed to make court appearances.”

Harris’s alleged anti-Jewish attacks are the latest in a string of anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York. Police there have reportedly received eight reports of hate crimes against Jews since December 13.

On Sunday, police arrested a man from New York in the anti-Semitic stabbing of five people Saturday night in Monsey, New York. 

Thomas Grafton allegedly crashed a Hanukkah gathering at the home of Rabbi Chaim Leibish Rottenberg and used a machete to attack. He then fled. Police captured him in the area. He is charged with five counts of attempted murder.

It was the second stabbing attack in the ultra-Orthodox community within a month. In the earlier attack, two shooters linked to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement killed a police officer and then fled to a kosher grocery shop in Jersey City and killed three people, including two Hasidic Jews. One of the shooters was killed by police.

The leader of a prominent Black Hebrew Israelite group condemned that attack.

In another assault, police say a homeless woman, 42-year old Ayana Logan, attacked a mother who was with her three-year-old son and shouted, “You f- -king Jew, the end is coming for you!”

The New York Post reports that suspects in six recent anti-Jewish crimes were released without bail.

  1. So if they are non white and commit a violent crime on white Jews they get released without bail and/or no jail time? That seems to be the trend here. What the heck is wrong with NY? I haven’t seen anyone designate these “hate” crimes either.

  2. What’s wrong with this picture? A woman who has repeatedly assaulted people due to their religion – the very definition of a hate crime – is let go without punishment to commit the same crime again. Whilst a person who stole an LGBTQ flag and burned it is given a 16-year prison sentence. If the law wants to be respected, it needs to be equitable.

  3. Hi Sharyl Attkisson,
    my comment is not about this story– I’m just leaving it here because this is the most recent story you’ve posted.
    Actually, I’ve been curious about this and would be interested to know *your* take if you ever wanted to report on it. There’s been so much noise about “Russian influence” on our elections, or Ukrainian or Chinese or whatever– secret manipulations of social media, I guess. The back door of election influencing.
    But with Citizens United allowing unlimited dark money from anyone, anywhere– isn’t that inviting the foreign influence right up front, through the front door as a welcome guest? It seems ridiculous to claim we’re so worried about the back door (except for actual voting box result changes) when we politicians brazenly invite that influence, which we (the public) can’t even see because it’s dark.

    No need to publish this comment (unless you want to). I just wanted to communicate with you. Finally able to support your site and proud to do it.
    All best to you and your loved ones in the New Year.

  4. To decent, hardworking honest blacks. DO NOT LET THESE THUGS DEFINE YOU. Step away, step up, step out and continue to fight the good fight. Finally – stand up to these bullies. They are brainless thugs.
