See Hella Winston’s new article in the Jewish Week, Trial Exposes Shadowy Chasidic ‘Modesty Committees’: Young woman’s testimony reveals tactics of freelance ‘purity’ guardians in Satmar community.
Hella provides documentary evidence for its existence and how it functions. She also makes clear that the DA has known about them. It seems to me that she feels, as do I, that the DA should be taking more action about their cover-ups of molesting and extortion.
I am quoted in her article. I covered some the same ground in two posts, one around the time Weberman was first arrested (Who Will Watch the Watchers) and in a post about three months ago, “She Knew She Was in Trouble When Weberman Closed the Bedroom Door.”
