NYC Self-Chosenite gets 40 years to life for dismembering boy

NEW YORK (AP) — A hardware store clerk was sentenced Wednesday to 40 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to kidnapping, killing and dismembering a lost little boy, bringing an end to a gruesome crime that horrified a tight-knit Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn.

Levi Aron had pleaded guilty this month to lesser charges in a deal that spared him a criminal trial and the possibility of life in prison without parole. When asked Wednesday if he wanted to speak at his sentencing hearing, the 37-year old whispered “no.” He will be eligible for parole in 40 years.

Aron wore a black yarmulke, bushy beard and orange prison jumpsuit, and kept his head down and eyes closed for much of the hearing. His attorneys said Aron suffered a head injury as a child that went untreated.

“As a child and a young man, he should have been treated for his mental illness,” attorney Howard Greenberg said. Outside court, his attorneys said Aron was sorry — but a public apology would ring false.

“He’s sorry and he wished he hadn’t done it,” attorney Pierre Bazile said.

Aron admitted he kidnapped and killed 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky after the boy approached him on a Brooklyn street and asked for directions on July 11, 2011. The boy was Hasidic, an ultra-Orthodox version of Judaism, and the killing shocked the community in Borough Park, a safe and somewhat insular neighborhood home to one of the world’s largest communities of Orthodox Jews outsideIsrael. Aron, who lived nearby, was Orthodox but not Hasidic.

Despite the outpouring of support for the family, there were few people in the courtroom Wednesday. Aron’s family did not attend the sentencing, nor did Leiby’s family. A prosecutor read a statement from the boy’s father, Nachman Kletzky, that said, “God did not abandon our son, nor our family, for one second.”

“There is no way one can comprehend or understand the pain of losing a child,” he wrote. “Esther and I faced this unspeakable tragedy last year when our little boy Leiby was ruthlessly taken from us. … A day doesn’t pass without our thinking of Leiby — but today we close the door on this one aspect of our tragedy and seek to remember only the gifts that God has bestowed.”

The statement was previously read to the news media after Aron’s Aug. 9 guilty plea by state assemblyman Dov Hikind, who represents Borough Park and served as a spokesman for the family. He said Wednesday the family wants to put the killing — and the horiffic details — behind them.

“It changed our community,” Hikind said of the killing, speaking outside court. “It affected everyone in our community. All over the world, people understood what it meant, that it could’ve been their child.”

Leiby got lost on his walk home from a religious day camp. It was the first time he was allowed to walk alone, and he was supposed to travel about seven blocks to meet his mother, but missed his turn.

Barely two days later, detectives found the boy’s severed feet, wrapped in plastic, in Aron’s freezer. A cutting board and three bloody carving knives were found in the refrigerator. The rest of the boy’s body was discovered in bags inside a red suitcase in a trash bin about a mile from Aron’s apartment. His legs had been cut from his torso.

The medical examiner’s office said Leiby had been drugged then suffocated.

Aron was taken into custody and an unnerving story unfolded about the hours he spent with the boy. Authorities said Aron promised to take Leiby home, but instead he brought the boy upstate to Monsey, N.Y. where he attended a wedding before bringing him back to his apartment. The two watched television before going to sleep. The following morning, Aron left for work at the hardware store, leaving Leiby alone nearly all day in the home.

Meanwhile, a massive search was conducted by his family and friends in the community. When Aron noticed fliers plastered on lampposts with the boy’s photo, he says he panicked, went home and suffocated the boy.

Assistant District Attorney Julie Rendelman said Aron knew what he was doing.

“He made a choice that day … his decision … was to take this beautiful boy’s life,” she said.

Aron has said little during court appearances, often looking ahead with a vacant stare, or down at the ground. His attorneys had planned to mount a defense that he was not guilty by reason of mental defect, bolstered by a reported obtained by The Associated Press that said Aron had an adjustment disorder and a personality disorder with schizoid features. “His mood is neutral, practically blank,” the psychologist wrote. “The only time he seems to show any emotional response is when he is asked difficult questions about the reason for his incarceration.”

During his guilty plea two weeks ago, Aron spoke barely above a whisper. He expressed no remorse and only hinted at motive: At one point he told Judge Neil Firetog he felt “panic” when he found out there was a frantic search on for the boy.

The judge asked him what he decided to do, and he responded simply, “Smother.” He also answered yes when asked if he had bound and drugged Leiby.

Leiby’s family has filed a lawsuit against Aron’s father, who owned the building where his son lived when the boy was killed. They argue that the father should have known something unspeakable was happening under his roof and could have saved the boy if he tried.

Aron’s attorneys asked for protective custody for their client because they worry he will hurt himself or be hurt by others. The state department of corrections must decide whether to grant the request.

    The family filed a lawsuit! Ah yes there is always money to be made somewhere, somehow

    Christian Zionists let this stuff happen. They believe they will go straight to heaven if they let Jews do anything and everything including raping their mommy, granny or daughter. I have many white Christian friends who are more defensive of Israeli and Jewish crimes than the perpetrators themselves. Shame on them more than the Jews. Seriously. Jews depend on people like that.

    His “tribe” has been expelled from 109 + countries, but seldom do we ever hear the reason(s) Why.

    Every single country his “tribe” occupies, young children always “disappear”, and the misbegotten “blood sacrifice” ilk of this creep ALWAYS feigns “victimhood”.

    It’s always the same old demonic filth and their pattern never changes. “They” never change.

    Even today, 500,000 young children “disappear” in the United States every single year.

    Pond scum filth like Aron also provoked the Spanish Inquisition before “they” were finally expelled from Spain in 1492. I won’t bother going into the gruesome details of Columbus’ “exploits”, but suffice it to say that Columbus started the Largest Real Life Holocaust in World History against Native American cultures. I am not saying that I condone the Spanish Inquisition, but I can certainly understand how human beings can be provoked after tolerating the blood thirsty ugliness of that “tribe”.

    The same old ugliness happens to innocent Palestinians every single day, and as a previous poster pointed out, Israelis are used to getting away with it for 64 years. As usual, the “tribe” always feigns “victimhood”.

    The more Kabbalistic Communist Jews try to prop up lies to censor their vile alien evils, the greater the conflagration will be against them as the civilized world collectively becomes fed up, and rightfully retaliates against these rogue parasite people with Great Resolve.

    Woe to the hypocrite and blasphemous “Christians” who are still wickedly stupid enough to be enslaved by and serve their blasphemous “Israel”.

    One Jew boy is killed in a city where people are routinely killed and NY state senator Dean Skelos and Assemblyman Dov Hikind promised $1 million of taxpayer money for security cameras in Borough Park and Midwood, Brooklyn, predominately Jewish orthodox neighborhoods. After all, they must do all they can to protect Jewish life.GENTILES ARE PEOPLE TOO!!

    The hypocritical, illiterate (who can’t understand the Gospel in which Christ called the Jews out), and blasphemous “christian” (little “c”) zionists would just assume defend a Jew to their death than they would Christ. They are members of the Synagogue of Satan.

    St. Sebastian, pray for us, and protect all children from these heinous monsters.

    And what if he was having an affair with the little boy’s mum?
    And that was the community’s way of punishing the two adults.
    That I am afraid makes far more sense!

    Maybe Aron’s an escaped parasite-sausage, conceived by Rubashkin with swine.

    And of course the family could sue for jew money; for more than a dollar, no doubt.

    Its a wonder he didn’t say “God told me to offer up a sacrifice, just like Abraham did”!



    In Exodus 32:7-14 the God of Israel tells Moses to go down from the mountain because He wants to wipe the Israelites off the face of the earth & start with a new people. Moses argues with God & slaughters 3,000 of the Israelites (see Exodus 32:21-28) Why? Because they had offered their children as Human Sacrifices to Moloch & continued to do so right through the Bible, even Solomon offered Human Sacrifices to Moloch. The prophet Amos chapter 5 tells us this; see verse 25-27& Acts 7:42-43.

    To see what happened we have to study Book of Jeremiah, especially chapter 7. Look at verses 21-27. It is clear that Judaism is corrupt from the beginning & we see that in Exodus 18 it’s the Pagan Priest of Median who is organizing Moses not God. The True religion of God is that of God’s Prophets.

    Talmudic Judaism has come down through the centuries pretending to be God’s Chosen People, but as Jesus says in John 8:44-47, they are the children of the devil. Jesus warned His followers to, “Beware the leaven (teachings) of the Pharisees”, which we have in English today called the Babylonian Talmud. In it you will read how Talmudic Jews are to offer Human Sacrifices:


    Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 64a
    Soncino 1961 Edition, page 437

    Following the Mishnah is a discussion among the sages. One of the Talmud Sages, Rabbi Ashi, comments as follows:

    GEMARA. R. Ashi propounded: What if one caused his blind or sleeping son to pass through, (3) or if he caused his grandson by his son or daughter to pass through? — One at least of these you may solve. For it has been taught: [Any men … that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall he put to death … And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people;] because he hath given of his seed unto Molech. Why is this stated? — Because it is said, there shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire. From this I know it only of his son or daughter. Whence do I know that it applies to his son’s son or daughter’s son too? From the verse, [And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man] when he giveth of his seed unto Molech [and kill him not: Then I will … cut him off.]

    If YHWH was REALLY talking to Moshe, then He was the FIRST anti-Semite!

    Exodus 32:7-10

    7 At the same time, the LORD said to Moses, “Go down from this mountain. Your people, the people you brought out of the land of Egypt, have committed a terrible sin. 8 They have very quickly turned away from what I commanded them to do. They made a calf from melted gold for themselves. They are worshiping that calf and making HUMAN sacrifices to it. The people have said, ‘Israel, these are the gods that led you out of Egypt.’”
    9 The LORD said to Moses, “I have seen these people, and I know that they are very stubborn. They will always turn against me. 10 So now let me DESTROY THEM in anger. Then I will make a great nation from you.”

    “He’s sorry and he wished he hadn’t been caught,” attorney Pierre Bazile said.

    His attorneys said Aron suffered a head injury as a child that went untreated.


    Can you imagine a Palestinian attorney telling a JEWISH judge, “My client suffered a head injury, when JEWISH bulldozers knocked his home on top of him.”

    JEWISH judge, “Get the f*** outta here”! “That’s a bullshit story”!

    “We don’t knock down people’s homes on top of them”!

    First, we kick the shit out of them; f*** them out on the street and THEN bulldoze the house down”!
