Hynes is a very corrupted DA. He is trying very hard now to focus the Jewish Community on this case . He planned this all out now .after what he is doing To Yitzchak Shuchat . Trumping up hate crime charges only to please the black community .Hynes is using Shuchat as a pawn to the Africian Americian community to get voting points for elections He is a corrupted Da that should be charged for a hate crime against shuchat
2. People in authority who abuse a child or an adult woman
Rivkah   (12.12.12)
need to understand the irrepairable damage that is done. A former school teacher named Patsy Willis who has passed away in recent years at the age of 59, was raped by a counsellor she went to see for help not abuse in college. A pregnancy resulted and she had an abortion. The lifelong remorse and horror at that prevented her from marrying or having children. She could not get past that emotionally although decades passed. Part of her life was spent in mental hospitals trying to recover from the irrepairable damage to her life. There was only more damage at the hospitals where she was doped up and raped by the staff, hardly a way to recover from psychological trauma. There is a special place in hell for people who cause such damage to a woman's mind and being and life. There is no power or authority except of God and people in authority should remember that. It is God's authority that is misused and judgment for the misuser is from God Himself if not from society.

another abuser in name of a god .
5. May all the filthy pedophiles be purged and not harbored...
R ,   Jerusalem   (12.12.12)
The pedophile plague must be stopped! Jailing a Jewish criminal helps prevent chilul HaShem! All those aiding and abetting these VILE men are shocking the goyim! It will be the undoing of their communities. Pedophile crimes perpetuate generation to generation unless people deal with it and get help. DA is criminal in that he doesn't prosecute all of the pedophile cases and doesn't publish the names. He's got a deal with the rabbis that want it hushed. Vile and disgusting!
6. Another religious figures turns out to be a pedephile
David ,   Haifa, Israel   (12.13.12)
Unfortuently for such gullable people who turn to religious figures for guidance, no one is checking these people as is the case their word is never questioned.
7. More often than not

after 3-4 months in jail the accuser is found totally innocent.
8. Sorry I made a mistake. I should have written
Jeremy   (12.13.12)
More often than not after 3-4 months in jail the accused is found totally innocent.
9. Abuse
Sam ,   Berchem Belgium   (12.13.12)
There is no proof at all that it's true,, She says ...he says,, i don't understand How u can put away a man for 25 plus years on what she says,,, So plz don't say in name of god
10. Flight with an 18 year old Satmar Kid
meir elazar   (12.13.12)
I was on a flight in Dec 2010 when an 18 year old Satmar kid would not sit next to a woman. He pressed to change his seat and ended up next to me. In the ensuing conversation I found that his Hebrew, Aramaic, and English were pitiful. His knowledge of Torah, Tanakh, and Jewish history were also pathetic.
11. Proof is easy enough to find.
David ,   Hartford USA   (12.13.12)
She must have mentioned something peculiar about his genitals- something that she could never have known about, unless forced to see them up close. Just like Michael Jackson's accusers did. How do these uncredentialled men become therapists? Give them all lie-detector tests and see who's hiding something.
12. 4 Charles, Petach Tikva...
I found a reason for the holocaust that might show you the glory of God in that instead of His absence. Gold which is a symbol of God is refined in a furnace of afflictions, as the Jews and Christians were in WWII Nazi Europe as well as in ancient Egypt. That was the only way to get the Jews refined and strengthened and resolved to the point that they would go back to their ancient homeland and defend it against all odds. The Jews would not have left Europe without being refined in the furnace of afflictions until they were golden and willing to do the will of God and return to their ancient homeland. Anciently, the Hebrews had to be refined in the afflictions of Egypt to be willing to leave there. Then they were further refined in the wilderness for forty years as Moses taught them warfare, Moses who was a former head of Pharoah's army in a war with Cush he won for Egypt.
13. 7,8 Jeremy: Both happens.
14. To anonymous 12
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (12.13.12)
I hate to react to anonymous , but here i will do it , and tell you to LEARN the history of the creation of the modern Israel . Antisemites are also telling that we received a state "thanks" to the Shoa . They are wrong , and you too . The creation of the State was underway BEFORE the Shoa , so your stupid argument looses her bases , only showing that you are an anonymous coward , and i dislike such "people"
15. 12 Nice !
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.13.12)
16. 11 David,lie detectors are not reliable
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.13.12)
17. 14 Charles, Petach Tikva: Before the Shoa, people were
sent like Hertzl to draw the Jews back to their ancient homeland. The Balfour Declaration was an enticement, too. If the Jews had left Europe BEFORE the Shoa, their ancient homeland would have been restored with the borders of the Balfour Declaration in the opinion of some. But the Jews balked at doing HaShem's will wh ich was to return to their ancient homeland. When they balked, HaShem removed His hand of protection for them and sent in hunters to f orce them back to their ancient lands. Tha tis the only they would go, most of them. I will call myself Annnie for Annienonymous.
18. 15 Thank you! HaShem sent shepherds to draw the Jews back
to their ancient homeland and when that failed to bring back sufficient numbers, HaShem sent hunters to force the survivors back after many were killed. They were killed because of the disobedience to HaShem's command in Scriptures to return to their ancient homeland when the Balfour Declaration opened the way. When that was ignored by the Jews it was not honored by the British and much land was lost. HaShem took away His hand of protection for the Jews when they would not return to their ancient homeland when invited to by the Balfour Declaration. They had to be forced back. Why is the State of Israel being persecuted now by enemies when HaShem wants the Jews in the land and could protect them by binding the demons that are driving their enemies to afflict them? HaShem wants the Jews to call on Him BY NAME (not title). YAHWEH is HaShem's name. Yeshua of Nazareth is His Son's name. When the Jews call on HaShem by His NAME, YAHWEH, then He will hear them and COME. Wow! He will hear them which means His Favor. Drop the titles of Adonai and HaShem and call on YAHWEH and recognize His Son Yeshua of Nazareth.
19. 15 , 12 has NO value at all foe SANE people
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (12.14.12)
who know History
20. 17 , anonymous coward
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (12.14.12)
Try to learn how to write names . Even if the Jews had wanted to settle in then called Paslestine , the brits would have empeached them to come . Secondly , in those years it was IMPOSSIBLE to integrate MILLIONS of Jews in a short period . Hand of "protection" ? and in what were the 1.5 million murdered babies and children guilty of something ? Don't talk about something inexisting , never seen nor heard it .
21. 15 , and you still believe in your tales !
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (12.15.12)
a "son" of a god and a virgin ! Not only are you an anonymous , but you try to convert SANE people to your idolatry . Two things i at least dislike , but better to say HATE .
22. Ora , you see to whom you said "nice" ?
Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (12.15.12)

Steve ,   Dallas USA   (12.24.12)
I often hear this about accusations of Haredi misconduct - only G-d knows the truth- as if to say, "we cannot judge". That is true for every criminal case, the Haredi are nothing special. And we can judge. G-d does not run the criminal justice system in the US, we do and the standard for the jury is "beyond reasonable doubt". The man is convicted. He is no longer an alleged molester, he is a convicted molester. If the Satmar do not like our US system, I suggest they leave - no one will miss them and the taxpayers will not have to put up with their welfare demands, which are heavy.
26. Charles and #12
Hanna ,   Tel Aviv   (12.30.12)
Charles trying to explain logic to religious fanatics is like trying to explain a 3 year old why he can't stay up late... About the pedophile... it is absolutely unaxeptable for a community to stay quiet while these things take place. The victims deserve justice. Excusing such a vile acts by saying the hand of god is involved in it is absurd- it is justifying the abusewrs, and if you are going to justify them, you might as well just say that the crazy guy that killed the little Hasidic kid last year is also excused for his actions because god's hands are in that too. Oh! The Zionist movewment dates back to the 1800s and even though the HOlocaust influenced the UN votes on the creation of ther modern State of Israel, it wasn't the reason why, and the Balfour declaration was just another building stone along the way... Charles is right, you need a long history lesson. GO back to reading on the pogroms in Russia, read about Dreifus, Trumpeldor, Jabotinsky, the first Aliyah!!!
