  1. I sincerely hope this was not a reaction to the arrest last week which seems to have been swiftly and thoroughly swept under the rug.

  2. Yes, his writings in the belovedconsoler under “secrets of David” are eloquent and should be a springboard for change in our communities. Where are the perpetrators? They are criminals and should not be allowed to roam free while their victims’ lives are destroyed. These pained souls must feel stabbed again and again every time a new allegation or arrest is made, and the community hushes it, just as the victims were pressured to keep silent.

  3. this lacks in kavod habriyos a soldier who gets killed for klal yisroel does not even get a hy”d or at least maybe r”l u just write found dead like he was as black drug dealer or something a yid and especially a soldier deserves a little more kavod
