Several months ago, while walking home from shul, I was taunted by a few loser-type teenagers in the same area.

totally unbelievable that this would happen in 2013....stupid kids? maybe....but even more likely, ignorant parents who don't talk to their children about such things !!

Yeah..like I said stupid kids.. Somebody who is a true believer of white supremists.. Wouldnt take chalk, a perishable substance & write it on a random sidewalk... If u step back and look at whole picture.. They would target a synagogue or large centralized town building.. Who really picks middle of a random sidewalk.. Just saying ..sounds like stupid kids

It's just sad that such ignorant idiots live here, ruining the reputation of our otherwise responsible neighbors. געדענק

There's ignorants everywhere... This I think, is just moronic kids..

There were roving bands of teens from East Meadow HS driving around the area destroying property of other team mates or teams they played... If it were at a house where the person has a student that plays softball and is Jewish, it may have been them..... Just curious... Either way the destruction of ones property is never the correct thing to do..

So it was stupid kids. That's no reason to shove this under the rug. Today's stupid kids become tomorrow's racist jack-hole adults. And yes, it was on Holocaust Remembrance Day. So I disagree that this was just a dumb, ignorant incident.
