    Brooklyn Councilwoman-Elect Blame Jewish People for Recent Knockout Game Attacks

     
    The American political, social, economic and family decline is representative of the recent "Knockout Game" attacks. The physical assaults have triggered great concern because the attacks have occurred in multiple States. Recently, Brooklyn Councilwoman-Elect Laurie Cumbo rationalized the recent attacks in community by blaming Jewish success for the attacks since the recent attacks were the Jewish elderly and youth.

    Councilwoman-Elect Laurie Cumbo:

    "I respect and appreciate the Jewish community’s family values and unity that has led to strong political, economic and cultural gains. While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success."

    So the next the time a woman or young boy is sexually assaulted because they were successful or looked pretty, let us blame the victim rather than the perpetrator.
