A man has been arrested after choosing to spend his Christmas Day shouting “Heil Hitler” and performing a Nazi salute directed at Jewish passersby. The man was spotted by volunteers from Shomrim Stamford Hill whilst out on patrol. They followed the man and called the police who came and arrested him.
In 2016, Shomrim volunteers have repeatedly caught antisemitic criminals red handed, and acted to ensure that they were arrested. Shomrim volunteers do not simply alert the police to antisemitic criminals; they also provide statements and regularly give evidence in court. Consequently a large proportion of the pitifully small number of convictions for antisemitic hate crime each year are the result of Shomrim’s work.
