Allegations Of Sexual Abuse Surface At Orthodox Jewish Camp
Crazy story, and even crazier reaction by camp officials who told kids not to tell their parents, and then contacted a lawyer and needed him to advise them to call police!!

The story is taken out of proportion, a terrible story happened and instead of the camp director or menehalim should throw a whole camp of 1200 boys in chaos, and have all boys frantic and crazy they handled the case professionaly , unlike all those sites and blogs tht are hungry for a story and scandals, they thought wht it can happen to a camp full of small boys, tht driver was thrown out immediately by contacting the food company, alot faster then police would of tracked him down, the DA was contacted and said the only charges are trespassing, a charge tht wouldn't hold up in the court of law, cuz he didn't trespass, cuz he had permission to come, police where showed the high quality surveillance, and where allowed access to speak to children,  chasdie hashem there was no damage done,  but I would any time send my kids to a camp tht doesn't get dragged into hurting the kids and panicking and running a whole camp by scaring the living daylight out of all kids , the danger wasn't imminent any more, so going to police wasn't in urgency, although the dayin ruling tht camp ruled it has to b reported to police,  and yes they did handle it with yishuv Hadaas,  no one on these blogs saw the footage ,the menhalim did see the footage and handled accordingly, 
Tht is my own 2 sense,
I have to admit when reading this story my blood pressure went up. But after calling friends I know from this kehilah these r my findings
Pls let me know if I'm wrong and I'm ready to change my mind,

I must admit that the only details that I know are from the New York Post which may be inaccurate, however I don't agree with your whitewashing the whole event. I think it's been rehashed again and again (and yet again)  that you must call the police ASAP in such a case. Assuming it's true that they said not to tell the parents - while you have points about not throwing all the kids into a panic, I don't think there is ever a valid cause to hide something like that from a parent for even a minute.
The attitude of  "tht driver was thrown out immediately by contacting the food company, alot faster then police would of tracked him down" is treading on very dangerous waters. The food company is not the first one to be contacted, and according to the article they only contacted the police when they were advised by their lawyer. Even Agudas Yisroel has said that police must be contacted when there is substantial evidence (which it sounds like there was here). What if he had more camps to deliver to that morning?
Again, I don't know any details and I'm only conjecturing but I would imagine that someone who is a registered offender and now has several boys with corroborating stories and is known to have been in a bunk where he shouldn't be - can be put in jail for many years and charged with a lot more than just trespassing.

Pretty cool! I recently went rollerblading on the Venice Beach boardwalk while pushing a double-jogging stroller. It was pretty awesome!

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
