Yes, That is Right! You totally disgust me and many others with your foolish, dangerous ideology, and gross perversions of the Torah. The antipathy drools and frosts from your fat lips. Lips that move with a motion that betray the very victims who sought your help. You call yourself a Rabbi? Ha! You call yourself a talmid chacham? You portray a heavenly superiority? Ha! You're no better than the sole of shoes baring the excrement of your last bathroom visit.
I have totally had it with your abhorrence. The muck is deep. Deeper than any bribes you accepted. How could you? How could a 14 year old girl be raped, and all the while you revolt any efforts by law enforcement to apprehend the perpetrator?
I am aghast, but why should I be? Should we expect any better from you? This is not something new. You have hindered other investigations before. Yehuda kolko couldn't control his fantasy for 6 year old boys, but you, Rabbi-Donkey, made this all possible. You allowed a train wreck that could have been prevented and avoided.
What is the solution, one may ask. The answer is three words. RESIGN! RESIGN! RESIGN! -- Too bad there are no term limits for specimens of your nature. You won't resign because you are dictators. You won't change because you're moronic and belligerent. Scared and misguided. Gutless and spineless. Feeble and nimble. Asses and donkeys.
I guarantee your own kids would also be scarred forever from such an ordeal, but you would probably overlook the trauma they endured if it meant having to hide the identity of the molester, because he is 'frum' of course.

CALL TO ACTION:
HELP PROTECT RABBI NOCHUM ROSENBAUM
Rabbi Nochum Rosenberg has been advocating for Jewish survivors of sexual violence in Williamsburg/Borough Park (Brooklyn) New York for over 35 years. Over the last several months he had his life threatened if he did not close down a hotline. During the week of Succos there was a drive by shooting in which someone shot him.
Please listen to him tell his story and demand that he is protected. His goal is to help survivors make police reports and testify in court to help put an end to sex crimes in his community and around the globe.
WATCH The four part series and then contact the New York Attorney General - Andrew Cuomo and demand there be a proper investigation and prosecution of the indivduals who would attempt to take the life of a rape victim advocate.

Regarding New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind
By Vicki Polin
The Awareness Center - November 25, 2008
Assemblyman Dov Hikind/Vicki Polin
Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people; neither shalt thou stand idly by the blood of thy neighbor" (Leviticus 19:16).
It saddens me a great deal to see how a few Jewish leaders in the orthodox world appear to be manipulating community members into believing they do not have to report heinous crimes to child protective services. Orthodox children deserve the same rights and protection as other children in the Unitied States of America.
I personally believe that Assemblyman Dov Hikind is wrong and is violating the civil rights of children from Torah observant homes. Each day that goes by that he refuses to work with law enforcement officials means another child is being sexually victimized.
One has to realize that turning over the names of alleged sex offenders and also those who were allegedly sexually abused to child protection workers does not mean that the names will be made public. It only means that there is a possibility that those who perpetrate crimes against our children may be prosecuted and those who have been sexually victimized will be offered "REAL" help.
As Jews, we all have moral responsibility to protect our youth. We all must consider ourselves as mandated reporters -- meaning if you suspect a child is at risk of harm you make a hot-line report (to child protective services in your state). Leave the investigating to those who have the specialized training and can conduct forensic investigations. Dov Hikind does not have this sort of training nor does those he "works" with.
Vicki Polin, MA, LCPC, NCC is the founder and CEO of The Awareness Center (which is the international Jewish Coalition Against Sexual Abuse/Assault). Vicki is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor who has been working in the sexual violence field for just under twenty-five years.
We mustn't ignore the more qualitative dimensions of education, which help a child expand and become a whole person. Divorce procedures rip families apart. As parents, ex-husbands and ex-wives must put aside their bitterness and anger in favor of the well being of their children.

It was about a week before Chanukah last year when I traveled to Israel to spend some time with my son, who was learning in Yeshiva there. It was a difficult time in my life, as I had made the decision to get out of an abusive marriage and was in the midst of a bitter divorce. At the time, my husband was seeking revenge and trying to do everything in his power to make my life miserable, including trying to sever my relationship with our children. He showed utter contempt for me, the mother, as he played the "victim" and tried to poison our grown children against me.
It is now the first night of Chanukah. As I gaze into the flames of the Chanukah candles, I think about how far I have come with the help of Hashem. For whatever reasons, I had to go through an abusive marriage. However, I have come out stronger in the long run. I went back to school, have a successful career, got my divorce and am finally re-establishing a healthy relationship with all of my children. I thank God for all the miracles that he has given me as I sit in my warm home on this cold winter night, staring into the flames and reminiscing about the triumph of the Maccabees that took place so long ago.
