    “The meeting was the latest in a series of meetings that Shabtai is holding with Chareidi leaders”

    The chief of police was forced to meet with a certain leader concerning his chassidim’s behavior towards a rival group. in order to pretend that it was a routine meeting he met other leaders too.

    BTW, hiskarvus leresha’im [vus not vois] is a massive sugya, but on a practical level you have keep lines of communication open between you and the police force.

    There were shtadlanim in all generations who met with resha’im
