One member of the Lakewood community that took part in publicly berating the victim's family has decided to write a public apology to the family that was ostracized from our community. He admits to having been misled by people he respected and was the only person involved to make such a public statement. He is a true adom gadol(righteous person). He stood up for what he thought was right, and was able to stand up when he realized he was wrong. We are publishing this letter to honor him.
