Elderly Orthodox Jewish man brutally beaten in Los Angeles

Elderly Jewish man beaten on way to synagogue in Los Angeles. Attack captured on security camera.

An Orthodox Jewish man en route to a Los Angeles synagogue for morning prayers was viciously beaten by an unknown assailant Monday morning.
Footage from a closed circuit camera shows the attacker pacing around the street at the site of the attack, then lunging at the victim as he walked down the street.

The attack reportedly took place near the Bais Yehuda synagogue at the corner of Oakwood and North La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles.

No details have yet been released on the condition of the victim or progress in the investigation into the attack.

The LAPD says it has not yet classified the incident as a hate crime, adding that the appeared to be a random assault, not a robbery.

Locals who know the victim say he was targeted because of his faith.

"He's never hurt a fly," one local told ABC 7. "He's just a good guy going on the way to prayers this morning and gets pummeled for no reason other than probably being Jewish."

And he will be out within three months,or maybe will get a suspended sentence.
the only way to stop this nonsense is to make sure this animal when caught and eventually released is beaten to a pulp and every bone in his worthless body is broken and winds up in a wheelchair for the rest of his worthless life.
