The witch hunt began. The family was harassed. The child, instead of being told that this was not his fault and he will be protected from now on, was made to feel unwelcome in his own neighborhood. Rabbis who are supposed to judge without any bias were suddenly taking the side of the accused. The family eventually felt compelled to move a thousand miles away in order to escape the onslaught of backwards justice that had been foisted upon them.
Not in this case. The reaction after the judge ordered Kolko to go directly to jail and face a sentence of fifteen years, was swift. Those that found out that they supported a child molester now felt bad for his harsh sentence, blaming the family once again for ruining the perpetrator's life. To those people I can only say one thing.
Did you defend Levi Aron after killing Leiby Kletzky?
All of you that took part in being roidef (chasing away) this family have a hand in the act of the abuser. You have taken what Kolko did, and copied him step by step. You used your positions of power to destroy those that rely on you for protection.
A public apology would be nice, but we won't be holding our breath.
