    The 26-year-old man arrested for the February stabbing of Yehuda Leib Brikman in Crown Heights, Brooklyn was found unfit to be prosecuted at this time due to mental illness, JP has learned.

    Keny Rochelin was arrested on March 10 in connection with the stabbing, which was initially investigated as a possible hate crime. He subsequently had stabbed two other men in March, and investigators arrested him and linked him to the stabbing of Brikman.

    Investigators at the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office then determined that the stabbing of Brikman wasn’t a hate crime, and Rochelin was hospitalized for psychiatric treatment.

    On Monday Rochelin appeared in court and was found unfit to proceed at this time as a result of mental illness.

    Rochelin’s top charge is attempted murder in the second degree, prosecutors said.

    Rochelin was sent back to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan under tight security, sources said, and he is scheduled to appear again in court on June 13.

      Nonsense.
      A psychiatrist friend of Dennis Prager (He’s Jewish…has radio show) who Dennis praised as warm and friendly: “A real peace maker. Tries to unite people. My good friend.”) was asked what he thinks of the psychiatrists in California, where he’s from:
      The doctor said: “On third are helpful, one third do nothing & one third are damaging.”
      The family of Yehuda Leib Brikman should appeal this.
      I’ve had experiences with psychiatrists and I wouldn’t trust them as far as I could throw them. More info? Too many of them are arrogant and self-centered.
      (I was wrongfully fired from a city job due to the mistaken diagnosis of a psychiatrist (Jewish female) who mistook my fear of her I thought she was going to find something unseemly in me—political. I fought this and won.
      Want to read the story? It’s related to ‘Pirke Avos.’

      Any criminal can plead insanity if he gets a good lawyer.

    3. The Problem with the insanity defense

      Is even John Warnock Hinckley Jr. (born May 29, 1955) who attempted to assassinate U.S.A. President Ronald Reagan in Washington, D.C., on March 30, 1981 claimed insanity

      Look at his eyes- I would much prefer that he remain in an insane asylum for the rest of his life than to go to jail and get out after 5 years for good behavior.

      Was he mentally enough stable 1) To Stab. 2) To Run Away. 3) to Hide So long – that It took the Police so long to find him. So He Is Enough Stable To Receive He’s Punishment that he Deserves. And Even If He Is Not Enough Stable To Be Prosecuted – But he Still Can Not Be Between People And Endanger Their Life!!! So No Matter what he must Be Locked in a Top Security Place in order not to repeat Again the Same Thing Again or Even Worse.
