A haredi man allegedly molested a child on a Monsey Trails bus travelling from Brooklyn to Monsey early Friday afternoon.
Police were called but refused to arrest the man or do anything to further the case, allegedly because the bus had crossed into Bergen County, New Jersey and the abuse apparently took place on the Jersey side of the border.
As you can see from the above video, the Ramapo police officer who responded refused to identify himself, eventually giving only what appeared to be his badge number – #476 – after persistent requests.
In most police departments, an officer like this would be suspended and probably fired.
Neither is likely to happen in Ramapo, where haredi powerbrokers call the shots.
