I mean I'd also be open to corruption if I was a lawyer and only making $74k a year. That number is shocking to me
With a government benefits package, it's probably worth much more than that.

Nicodemo: A Bad Apple, or the Tip of a Corruption Iceberg?

Bang!

https://thelakewoodscoop.com/news/nicodemo-a-bad-apple-or-the-tip-of-a-corruption-iceberg/
The theory that the relentless push to prosecute innocent man comes from a more deep rooted corruption at the AGs office makes this saga make more sense. According to this theory, it makes sense that they will push back no matter what because they have too much to hide. And they may think that they may get away with it because the corruption is coming from powerful people higher up in the AGs office.

It would help if people would repost these on Twitter and tag the AG, the governor, and some others. Let them see that there are numerous outlets that are reporting this.

The OP of this thread
Is this what Reb Ahron had in mind when he started a community outside Brooklyn to be a yeshiva enclave?
The last 213 pages notwithstanding, but what Lakewood looked like today might've resembled what R' Aharon had in mind. The entire city felt like it was centered around the Yeshiva. Essential businesses that remained open through the height of Covid closed for the levaya. The majority of the men in my wife's office, some of whom were not alumni of BMG, took the day off to be at the Levaya. The traffic patterns were significantly out of whack. For a day, the Yeshiva seemed to be at the center of everyone's lives. (Heck even TLS acknowledged they exist.) And i've never felt more proud to be a part of it.

now back to the regular programming...

I think it's time to split off all the discussion about R' Eismann and his prosecutor into it's own thread

Literally every discussion that's taken place on this thread recently could've been spun off into a new thread. Avi Schnall, KD/AD, antisemitism, how much family of 2 spends....... This thread doesn't focus much on Lakewood's future anyhow. It pretty much serves as an all purpose thread for people who care about inside Lakewood "hock." I vote it stays, and maybe rename the thread.

I was thinking numerous times to split the Rabbi Eisemann posts off. But there are so many posts about the case, and they are so intertwined. So I also think it should stay. And I think that changing the name will confuse the occasional visitors who also got to know this thread.

I think everyone should debate the thread title for a while, that'll surely be a help  ;D
