Wait. Only “some now demanding that police track this driver down”? And shouldn’t it be noted that this was a Jewish school?
Um does it kill us to note these are Jewish kids at a Jewish school? https://t.co/BTJpEmXGlS

The good news is that the NYPD has found the car and we assume an arrest is imminent:

Although it’s not been in the news, hate crimes against Jews is on the rise in New York City:
While the nation was focused on a hoaxed hate crime, Brooklyn’s Jews have been repeatedly and actually attacked. Are we not discussing it because most of the perpetrators are black?https://t.co/IFlw9cuW4j

And a synagogue was just vandalized this week:
In what has become a continued pattern of anti-Semitic attacks, a synagogue in #Brooklyn had its window smashed as community members were enjoying Shabbat together. As an act of defiance and strength, despite the attack the synagogue will remain open https://t.co/DeSCYKMsBK
