A travesty of justice
involving the Satmar member who threw bleach at the valiant rabbi who's helped victims of sex abuse:
A Brooklyn rabbi and child sex-abuse advocate slammed segments of the Orthodox Jewish community and new Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson on Monday after the man who threw bleach in his eyes got off with a no-jail plea deal.
Meilech Schnitzler, 38, was hit with a raft of charges including assault for the December 2012 bleach attack on Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg in Williamsburg, but Schnitzler was allowed to plead guilty to just one count of assault in a deal that gave him five years probation but no time behind bars.
“They threw bleach on me because I’m a child activist and they want the child meat for free,” said Rosenberg, 64. “We thought Thompson was going to give us a better chance to fight the pedophiles, but it looks like the office is still the same with the community pressure.”
And that's very bad. This is a serious case where an innocent guy trying to help victims of sexual abuse could've been badly injured by the bleach, and they're letting the creep off easy? Sick. I think Rosenberg should sue Schnitzler for damages, or appeal the given sentence if he can. Even if this is the thug's first felony, that doesn't mean he shouldn't be made to pay for it.
