Haredis who rioted at anti-recruitment protest will be prosecuted

Following the awful riots that ensued at the protest yesterday, the police announced they'll be prosecuting at least 8 Haredi hoodlums they arrested:
Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich said he was appalled by the protesters' violence which was also directed at police officers and promised that the rioters would be punished.

Thursday's protest saw one officer moderately wounded and another five lightly wounded. Of the protesters, five sustained minor wounds.

One of the detainees, aged 17, was released under restrictions by a police officer while the others were brought before a court where it was decided to release them on the condition they avoid demonstrations for 90 days. Police said all eight would be prosecuted.

"The value of Torah education is important to us all, but so are the other duties and privileges in the country," Minister Aharonovich said. "Criminal behavior, illegal protests and assault of officers will not change the equal share of the burden law and the government's firm stand on the issue."
The criminal offenses committed were practically in violation of the Torah's education, to say nothing of the license given for the protest, as one of the earlier reports mentioned. If they really cannot get the attendants to be civil, then they cannot be given a permit for this, and will additionally have to come to terms with the potential that they won't get one again for a long time.

As for the 8 defendants, they should be required to do community service, which could include working with female bosses, assuming they're sex-segregationists. That could teach them a thing or two.

Update: a day before the riot, something just as lurid occurred: a far-left group of anarchists came to voice support for all Haredi residents of Mea Shearim who oppose military service.
