Video: Brooklyn DA On Weberman Victim, Hasidic Harassment

Brooklyn D.A. Charles Hynes praises the Crown Heights Beis Din for issuing a ruling last year that said there is no prohibition of mesira, informing, in cases of child sexual abuse.

But the fact is that the beit din was not actually in session when the beit din was supposed to meet with victims and hear their stories. Instead, only two judges were present. (Three are necessary for any official proceeding to take place.) One didn't understand what sexual abuse was, and it had to explained to him several times in Yiddish by Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg. Those two rabbi-judges signed a letter on the beit din letterhead.

For those of you familiar with these things, this is a less than perfect result that leaves some loopholes for those who want to use them to protect alleged pedophiles.

And, unfortunately, in Crown Heights, plenty of people seem to want to do that. Some Chabad figures like Rabbi Shea Hecht will occasionally rush to report a non-Chabad, non-Crown Heights pedophile to the DA's office, but do nothing about the Chabad pedophiles that run loose in Crown Heights itself. Most other Chabad rabbis opt do nothing about either group of pedophiles.

In other words, Hynes is placing much too much faith in that beit din letter.

But he is right about one thing – no beit dins in Williamsburg or Borough Park – not even a couple beit din rabbis meeting informally – have issued any rulings removing the prohibition of mesira from child sexual abuse cases.

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE! I speak from experience as a frum parent who prosecuted a frum molester in NJ, during our ordeal I contacted Hynes' office for some assistance (the molester had served time in jail in NY) and was stonewalled. He is only making this statement now because there is intense media attention.

Mandated reporting for everyone!

God bless you DA Charles Hynes!!!

IT IS HIGH TIME TO START BEEING FAIR TO DA CHARLES HYNES AND APOLOGIZE FOR THE UNFAIR BEHAVIOUR WE IN THE VICTIMS COMMUNITY CONDUCTED IN RECENT MOUNTHS AND YEARS AGAINST DA CHARLES HYNES LETS SRART AND BE FAIR BY STARTING INDEED TO EXPRESS APPRECIATION AND THANKS AND ENDAVER IN PUBLIC ALL HE IS DOING.

AND START SUPPORTING HIM IN A RESPECTFUL MANOR AND FASHION.

I PERSONALY SAW FAMILY MEMBERS VICTIMS OF SATMAR BARBARISM CRYING WHEN WATCHING THIS VIDEO CLIP IN FAILEDMESSIAH.

Lubavitchers turning in non-Lubavitch paedophiles, while covering their own! If every Hasidus only reported others, eventually all would be reported.
