Last time I blogged about Jerry (Yechiel) Brauner, he got a super sweetheart no-jail deal on a sex offense, courtesy of the Brooklyn DA, Kenneth Thompson. He is a dangerous, uncontrollable, impulse-driven groper with a criminal record going back decades. Hanging out at that pedophile paradise, Congregation Shomer Shabbos in Boro Park, he even groped the genitals of men whose hands were occupied with holding Torah scrolls. And he does worse with minors. (update- A year ago, Shomer Shabbos finally kicked him out though other pervs are still welcome).
Sure enough, Brauner is due in court tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016, on a probation violation (Criminal Court, Division 2).
I expect he will get off with a slap on the wrist because the corruption of the office of the DA manifests itself as a peculiar inability to ever find ways to clamp down when it comes to orthodox Jewish sex offenders.
The DA may be obliging them but the greater shame falls on a community that uses its political muscle to protect sex offenders instead of protecting its members from sexual violations.
It is absurd to read of an obsession with modest clothing and sex segregation. What good is modest clothing when you can get away with groping over them or sticking your hands or worse under them?
