Video: Hasidic Reaction To Weberman's Conviction
Note that the hasid interviewed repeats the falsehood that the beit din system (when it existed in real form) could not have convicted Weberman because there wasn't any physical evidence against him (or witnesses). Also note that the NBC reporter accepts that falsehood without questioning it and also says that the case was a 'he said, she said' case – which is also false because there was evidence to support the girl's claim.
Hasidim repeat and often believe this falsehood because they are, quite often, very poorly educated and don't know any better. Underneath those long black coats and funny hats, big bushy beads and curly peyos, often lies a man with a 5th grade Jewish education (and a 3rd grade secular education).
