Slave to Fashion: Apollo Braun Slapped for Slave Shirt

Written by Linnea Covington on . Posted in Crime Watch Our Town Downtown, Posts

Controversial "designer" Doron Braunshtein, aka Apollo Braun, finally got slapped for putting out a T-shirt that read, “Obama is my Slave.”  OK, maybe he didn’t get slapped, but he did file a police report for harassment on Wednesday, which we confirmed with DCPI. According to a statement in a press release he sent out yesterday, two black men grabbed him and kicked him in the balls after shouting, “Who do you call a slave, you fucking Jew?!”
 
This isn’t Braunshtein’s first time in the limelight after the Obama shirt.  We first wrote about his "Who Killed Obama" shirt in March. When that didn't work, he decided to go further. In July he made his way to the cover of the free daily paper Metro after he issued a press release about a girl getting attacked for wearing the shirt.  It was never confirmed if the incident really happened or was just part of a publicity stunt.  The Metro article cited Braunshtein as their only source and claimed attempts to reach the victim were futile (and the editor was later fired).
 
Braun is clearly race baiting and attempting to be a provocateur in the name of free speech and artist entitlement...

Dear Williamsburg Stabbers: Please Don’t Stab Me

Written by Sam Roudman on . Posted in Crime Watch Our Town Downtown, Posts

I am going to level with you guys: the prospect of being stabbed is not one that I relish. In fact, it’s an extremely discomfiting possibility, and I can think of any number of things that immediately, I would rather have occur to me than be stabbed by a machete as a part of your gang’s initiation. Even if sometimes you’re just stabbing for revenge, and I don’t have to worry, it’s just not cool (although some of your gang videos are all right). In a message issuing from a generally unused room in my brain’s house of threat assessment and response, the warning horn is blaring its proud truth song now, and you know what it’s telling me?

1) I really don’t want you to stab me.
