For months the pro-criminal and antisemitic Mayor Bill de Blasio has taken negligible action to stop the anti-Semitic attacks that are now rampant in Brooklyn. Well Attorney General William Barr has finally seen enough. On Tuesday AG Barr met with a number of Jewish leaders in Brooklyn, and promised a “zero tolerance policy” for these violent anti-Semitic attacks. “I’m extremely distressed by the upsurge in violence and hate crimes committed against the Jewish community,” Barr said. Barr also put his words into action. He rightfully filed federal hate crime charges against the racist bigot Tiffany Harris, for physically attacking three Orthodox Jewish women and yelling, “F–k you, Jews!” The federal charges filed against Harris carry a maximum of 30 years in prison. This will send a strong message to the anti-Semitic thugs who have been terrorizing the orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn for months.

Tiffany Harris charged with federal hate crimes in New York City for anti-Semitic attacks
By New York Post, January 28th, 2019:
The Brooklyn woman busted for allegedly assaulting Jewish victims — yet twice released under new bail reform laws — has been hit with federal hate crime charges.
Federal authorities hit an accused anti-Semitic slapper with hate-crime charges on Tuesday — finally making her eligible for bail following back-to-back busts last month.
A federal warrant for Tiffany Harris’ arrest was unsealed as US Attorney General William Barr met with Jewish community leaders in Brooklyn and assured them that her federal prosecution “will not be an isolated case.”
“We will move aggressively if we see this kind of activity,” Barr said during the two-hour gathering at the Boro Park Jewish Community Center.
Barr also said he was “extremely distressed by the upsurge in violence, hate crimes against Jewish communities.”
Brooklyn US Attorney Richard Donoghue, who joined Barr at the meeting, called Harris’ federal prosecution “a good example of having a very low tolerance for this kind of activity.”
The federal charges against Harris carry a maximum 30 years in prison, compared to the 12 she faces under an indictment that charges her with state hate-crimes charges in Brooklyn Supreme Court.
It’s unclear if the state charges will have to be dismissed to avoid double jeopardy, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office said.
Harris, 30, is accused of slapping three women in Crown Heights early on Dec. 27, the fifth day of Hanukkah, and of shouting “F–k you, Jews!” before smacking one in the back of her head.
“Two of the victims were wearing clothing that made them identifiable as Jewish,” an FBI agent wrote in an affidavit for the warrant.
“All of the victims were simply walking down the street when the defendant approached and assaulted them.”
Harris allegedly admitted she “believed the three women were Jewish because the neighborhood was known as a ‘Jewish neighborhood’ and because of the manner in which the women were dressed,” according to the affidavit.
She was released the following day under the state’s controversial bail-reform law, then busted Dec. 29 in another attack on a woman in Prospect Heights and released again the next day.
Harris is currently undergoing in-patient psychiatric treatment following a Dec. 30 meltdown during which she allegedly pinched a social worker.
