The officers of the 71st precinct who handled this call should be commended for the professionalism displayed during this incident. The instant response and arrest of these perps was something to behold. If only every incident was treated as such crime in Crown Heights would be driven into the ground. Another solution would be to have those extra patrols by both car and foot in order to deter crime before it occurring rather then having to respond to it after it happens.
