CBS report about the secretive sect of Satmar


This CBS video give some insight into the case involving accused child molestor Nechemya Weberman of the Satmar sect, and how the sect itself has a custom of maintaining an insular atmosphere, even defying the laws of the country they live in. According to this NY Post article, when Weberman testified, he even implied he thinks of his victim as dirt:
Weberman was having a high time until prosecutor Kevin O’Donnell asked him flat-out, “You’re a well- respected man. In the Satmar community, [the accuser] is considered a piece of dirt?’’

With a smirk I’d like to rip off his fat face, Weberman demolished his alleged victim without as much as a forbidden kiss.

“There are people who are better than her, right,’’ he said.

Later, he explained that this child was “fresh’’ and “immodest’’ unlike other girls. “That’s why these were girls who were better than her.’’

What would Moses think?
What would even Solomon think? If Weberman were really sincere, he would've avoided sounding like he thinks of the girl in completely hostile terms just because she filed charges against him. Instead, he comes off sounding more like a vindictive scumbag who can't come to terms with how his and his sect's hypocritical customs have only ended up exposing just how nasty they are towards women in their community. Even the parents are going to have to shoulder some blame here for caring more about their standing in a community they should not have remained in and thus sacrificing their daughter's welfare for the sake of being part of such a rock-bottom cult.

The jury is currently mulling the results of the case. I hope they will find Weberman guilty, and he most definitely is guilty of practicing therapy without a license, something that should absolutely warrant criminal charges against him. It says here:
No physical evidence was offered at trial, and Weberman took the stand in his own defense, denying he molested the girl. But he had to acknowledge a charity he ran was used to buy lingerie, and that he hosted other troubled teens at the home office where the alleged abuse took place.
All without the proper training and permits either, I'm guessing. That should be enough to convict him.
“I think he’s guilty, but it’s a matter of what he’s guilty of,” said a third juror, a 41-year-old man from Canarsie.

He praised the testimony of the teenager, saying she had to obey authority, but still “decided to speak out.”
Any authority should not have to include the Satmar's own so-called reps.
Jurors were introduced to the rules of the insular Satmar sect, where modesty is strictly enforced and youngsters who stray are sent for religious counseling. “I look at it as a blessing,” one of the jurors said of participating in the high-profile trial, “because I got to learn on a whole different culture.”
And that's the biggest benefit of this trial and reports on the proceedings. Everybody who wanted to know about the "Vaad Tzniut" and how it harasses innocent women and men within the community who don't live up to their absurd standards can get some pretty good insight from a lot of the reports and testimony of experts on this alleged Haredi sect.

And I hope those 4 other creeps who illegally took photos of the victim in court for intimidation tactics will be punished to the full limit of the law as well. I don't know what the verdict will be, but after this, I think the Satmar sect will have had its image totally blown out of the water for everyone to see.
