An arrest has been made in the case of a New York Rabbi who was murdered in North Miami Beach back in 2014.
According to Miami-Dade Police, 15-year-old Deandre Edwin Charles was arrested early Wednesday morning, after a 16-month long investigation.
Sources said the teen, who was 14 at the time of the crime, went on a robbery spree throughout Northeast Miami-Dade and North Miami Beach when he ran into Rabbi Joseph Raskin. Raskin was walking to a Synagogue, on that Aug. 9, Saturday morning, not carrying any money. Charles, who is accused of shooting Raskin to death got away empty handed.
It was from Clint Smith that I heard “You don’t know what your attacker looks like” and that is the truth. If we make a mental composite of what we think who a bad guy can be, we are setting ourselves for adding extra time to our reaction gap.
It is the aggressive action and not the image that determines our defensive posture and reactions. Book…cover…judge.
