Yeshiva World News Finally Reports about a Child Molester

scales of justice and childThe good news is that Yeshiva World News, a Haredi web-based outlet finally reported a case of child molesting. Yesterday (4/12/15) they ran the headline: “Williamsburg Community On Edge After Man Inappropriately Touches Child On Flushing Avenue.” The story states:

The NYPD along with Williamsburg Shomrim (WSPU) are investigating an incident involving a forcible touching of a child. Law enforcement sources tell YWN that the troubling incident happened around 9:30AM, Sunday, at the corner of Flushing Avenue and Nostrand Avenue in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. The victim, an 11-year-old child was touched inappropriately by a… male walking on the street. The frightened child ran to school and did not tell anyone about the incident until his father came to pick him up around 12:00 noon. At that time, police and Shomrim were called, and an NYPD Level 1 Mobilization Response was requested.

I left out one word in the above story, “Hispanic.” Apparently it is OK to object to Hispanic males inappropriately touching Jewish children. But it is not OK to expose orthodox offenders. For that matter, Shomrim in Williamsburg also will work against non-Jewish child molesters but not against Jews.

    • I have no idea. What matters is that Shomrim and Yeshiva World believe the description is of an Hispanic (and presumably not a Sephardic) male. Thus the point of my post stands whether or not the identification is accurate.
