He’s been called a racist, a vigilante, and a hero
Join us as we hear the story of the first Jewish vigilante that took on the crime-ridden streets in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn during the ‘70s and ‘80s. We will hear among other stories how he saved an African-American woman from bleeding to death on the streets from severe gunshot wounds.
Shemtov who stands at 5’2 had patrolled Crown Heights under the name the “Red Devil.” comparing himself frequently to Charles Bronson, circa Death Wish.
