I have been following an incredibly disturbing but revealing series in the New York Times about how the New York City Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community is being allowed to handle accusations of child molestation within the ranks and how Brooklyn DA Charles J. Hynes is allowing it to happen. It made me sick to my stomach. I have read some commentary about how this is just “more antisemitism” by the Times etc. Poppycock! This is news and a dirty secret that needs to be exposed on a national level. Hopefully the exposure will help bring a stop to this. Yes, this series could perpetuate a perception that Jews in general are soft on child molesters. That’s unfortunate but a small price to pay to save abused children hidden within the ultra-orthodox ranks with no true advocate to save them. If Jews in mass speak up against this, so much for that perception regardless. This protection and preferential treatment of accused child molesters must stop. It must stop in the ultra-orthodox community and it must stop within the goverment ranks. Brooklyn DA Charles J. Hynes, should be ahsamed of himself using politics to the detriment of abused children and brazenly thumbing his nose at the laws of this country. We are in fact a nation of laws. We are NOT a nation of laws… and then whatever the ultra-orthodox community wants to do. I hope he gets voted out.
