Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “New York town police accused of INVADING private home in crackdown on Jewish gathering after video of angry shouting match emerges”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The confrontation apparently happened in Monsey, a place in Rockland County famous as a major center of Orthodox Judaism in the US. It shows a police officer standing on the doorstep of a house, engaged in a heated argument with a group of people, one of whom apparently owns the property.

Police officers enter PRIVATE HOMES to find Jewish gatherings in Monsey, New York:“We came because we had a vehicle parking complaint. Then I look up and I see you have over 10 people in a crowd!” pic.twitter.com/hXsXpuKJeG

The officer says his patrol was responding to a complaint about cars parked in front of the house and noticed that a gathering of more than 10 people was underway inside, which he called "an issue." The owner, who is dressed as an Orthodox Jew, disagrees that "a few friends" calmly coming together is an issue requiring police intervention. Both parties speak angrily, suggesting that the dispute has been going on for some time without progress. It was not immediately clear how the situation was resolved.

The video quickly spread on social media on Friday and was picked by some right-wing outlets. Many people said the police were obviously overstepping their authority and interfering in private life. A lot of comments went as far as comparing the incident to persecution of Jews by the Nazis.

These are genuine, honest questions: New Yorkers, is the police doing this to non-Jewish residents as well? Also, why can't the police officer explain what the issue is instead of shaking his head? Is it illegal to have more than 10 people in a house? https://t.co/p6IjGJbNNc
