In 2008 Assemblyman Dov Hikind visited Crown Heights with the mission to “combine Shomrim and Shmira together”, Hikind claimed that there is no reason to have two patrols and gave an example of how in Boro-Park and Flatbush there are only one patrol with no factions. Hinkind then went on to say that the Shmira and Shomrim of Crown Heights will join together one way or the other.
Listen to the full interview:
Fast forward 2012
The Boro-Park neighborhood in which which Assemblyman Dov Hikind officially serves as an elected official now has more then one patrol – more then one faction.
Will Dov Hikind save the day in his own community? Will Hikind bring peace between all the Boro-Park factions?
1bigcholent has received numerous emails and letters from Boro-Park residents who can’t sleep at night and walk around depressed all day as a result of this issue between the two Boro-Park patrols. Residents are saying that they would rather shut all the patrols down then have two.
DOV HIKING!!!!! BORO-PARK NEEDS YOU TO SAVE THE DAY!!!
Perhaps Hikind will have better luck in his own community where he lives and was elected.
