Police Officer Forced To Transfer After Video Shows Him Yanking A Man’s Payos


The Israeli Police Department has decided to immediately remove the policeman who was caught on camera brutally pulling the payos of a charedi man from Beit Shemesh who was arrested during an evacuation of a shul.

While he was being led to the patrol car, video footage shows Mordechai Kreuzer  surrounded by a number of policemen. Although he was not resisting arrest and was walking with with the police in handcuffs, one of the officers suddenly pulled his payos tightly.

For many seconds, the detective seemed to be pulling at Mordechai Kreuzer’s payos with his head folded in pain, unable to resist or take any action until they reached the police car.

After the video was publicized, the cruel policeman was transferred to a different precinct. However, he continues his activities as a policeman as the Israel Police Department did not see fit to suspend him immediately from any activity.

Asked why the police officer was not dismissed, a police source said, “As far as the law is concerned, if there is a suspicion of a criminal incident against a police officer, Internal Affairs will investigate and can prosecute him. If he is convicted, a procedure is opened – which may result in the end of his service. ”

“In spite of the difficult incident, there is still a necessary organizational procedure, according to which we are obligated to act,” the police source explained.

  1. It sounds legitimate that there should be a procedure to follow, however it’s only the case in regards to cases against Jews even more so charedi Jews; if it were against an arab, they would not have hesitated to dismiss the officer immediately.
    There is a famous quote attributed to Golda Meir: “peace will come when the arabs will love their children more than they hate us” so I say: “peace will come when Jews stand up for each other and defend each other instead of the enemy”.

  2. How dare you, Matzav, publish such a story when it is clear the peyos guy was just a peleg demonstrator against giyus banim? Rav Chaim(‘s chatzer) has already ruled that there is no giyus banim or banos (and the 3,000 draftees don’t exist depending on the day) and therefore these guys only have their selves to blame. You are just feeding into their propaganda by reporting on this…..

  3. The whole world has seen the true out and out hatred that the secular Israeli government/police have for Orthodox Jews. Their brutality against their own people is an incentive for Palestinians and Democrats in America to go out and attack Jews wherever they may be found. Secular Israel are causing hatred against Jews.
