DA Hynes to Visit Crown Heights, Address Child Abuse

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes.

This Sunday, June 10, 2012, at 4:00pm, the Crown Heights community will be joined by Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes for an evening of policy education, awareness, and prevention.

The Town Hall Meeting will be held to discuss the dark secret that everyone knows but no one wants to talk about. Shame, secrecy, and fear around discussing sexual abuse is a harsh realty in every community on this planet, both secular (e.g. Mr. Sandusky) and religious.

Now, we have the opportunity to gather with leading legal experts in the field to discuss what policies can be implemented to combat abuse in our community specifically, and to give proper direction on what to do if G-d forbid abuse occurs. Let’s gather to come up with practical solutions that protect potential and actual victims.

When:
Sunday, June 10, 2012 at 4:00pm

Where:
Ohel Nosson’s Shul located at 580 Crown St. [between Albany and Troy Ave.] in Crown Heights.

Panel:
Charles Hynes, District Attorney of Kings County
Norman Siegel, Civil Rights Attorney
Irwin Zalkin, Abuse Attorney
Rabbi Yosef Blau, Senior Spiritual Guidance Counselor of Yeshiva University,
Rabbi Zvi Gluck, Director of crisis management at Our Place will the moderator for the evening.

    Whatt!! You have Zalkin Law Firm on board?? Irwin Zalkin is known world wide for suing the Catholic Church billions of dollars and closing them down!! I think the Yeshivas and camps better get into shape with policies and protect our children before the same things happen to them. (I hope he not here tell us that one of our yeshivas is getting sued for harboring a molester!

    NOW THE TIME HAS COME FOR A CHANGE

    Interesting to see that both of these attorneys are both Jewish!

    Norman Siegel is a bleeding heart liberal who should not be allowed anywhere near a frum community. He’s a self hating Jew who’s purpose in life is to steer up trouble for anyone who disagrees with his politics.

    From what i hear you are right.

    But that is what we need a self hating Jew that does not care and only wants to protect our children.

    I think now the yishivas & camps will get the point… they better do something or this self hating jew will do something for them.

    This is the person for the job!

    Ah, but nothing works better to clean up child abuse than the justice of Gd!

    Every abused child has a Daddy in heaven who is fighting for him/her. Their Daddy will win this time! Their Daddy is bigger than any other Daddy on the planet and in His court, justice is pure!

    Justice and freedom may not happen today but when it does, there will be no doubt it is from the hand of your Daddy!

    Keep one thing in mind, regardless of what happened, or happens, Gd still expects you to obey Him!

    p.s., If you take your case to the court of Gd, He will personally prosecute it Himself in the heavenlies! The justice received will be fair as He has seen and knows all, and money, nor careers, will not be a deciding factor.

    When He gets finished, you will know justice has been served!
