If we'd be as busy checking for offenders as checking for bugs...
We go to Shiurim to learn how to carefully check for bugs. Why not have Shiurim on how to check for and remove --- offenders? Many offenders roam the streets freely, with our knowledge, and are protected in the US and abroad. Why are we more careful to check for and remove bugs?
Is there a Torah prohibition to check for and remove molesters/offenders, that Im not aware of?
Somehow, many of us have no problem being Motzei Shem Ra on victims and allow them to be intimidated. Is this a Mitzvah? Usually when theres smoke, there has been fire.
What message are we sending our youth and young adults who are aware of this position in our community? Isnt this hypochrisy souring them on frumkeit? Is being more careful to remove bugs than perps, and leave innocents in harm's way, the Torah way?
Yasher Koach to Rabbi Horowitz of Project Yes, for protecting and not further punishing victims! May he be Gezunt un Shtark!
