link-asterisk.jpgBlack and Jewish community leaders in Crown Heights called Sunday for calm – and more help from police and City Hall – in the wake of racially charged violence in the Brooklyn neighborhood. Geoffrey Davis, brother of slain City Councilman James Davis, organized the gathering at Albany Ave. and Empire Blvd., where black attackers pummeled and robbed Jewish youth Alon Sherman, 16, as he rode his bike on Friday. “We need more foot patrol. We want solutions and answers,” Davis said.–NYDN
