This is offensive. The Haredi moonbats who rioted in Mea Shearim and threatened a Haredi soldier won't face serious charges
for attacking police who came to help the guy:
The State Prosecutor's Office quashed the majority of charges against Joseph Brown and Jacob Krichevsky who attacked police officers as they tried to rescue a haredi soldier in the Mea Shearim neighborhood in Jerusalem. Original charges included aggravated assault of a police officer, disturbing a police officer in the line of duty and rioting.
The two recently admitted to rioting under a revised indictment. Charges relating to the hurling of stones, iron bars and empty glass bottles as well as spitting at officers, were dropped. The revised indictment comes a month after charges were first brought against the two men.
Officials at the Jerusalem Police were hardly pleased with the State's decision to withdraw the more serious charges, even as officers testified to clearly detecting the defendants assaulting their fellow policemen.
According depositions taken at the scene, two officers testified to seeing Brown lifting objects and throwing them at policemen.
The worst part is that they may not even be face jail in a cell; only house arrest. This may have come due to pressure by Haredi politicians, but it makes little difference; the prosecutor has failed to enforce the law equally, and insulted the soldiers by extension. What those hoodlums did was very serious, and they have to face significant time in a prison for their offenses.
