The good news here is that, unlike in the past, the police acted boldly and collared the despoiler of religion
who crossed a red line:
A haredi man from Beit Shemesh aged around 40 was arrested on Wednesday morning, on suspicions that he threatened and shouted at three 15-year-old girls who walked around in clothes that he considered to be "immodest."
The girls complained to the police on Tuesday, telling them that as they walked on a street in one of the neighborhoods in Beit Shemesh, the suspect spotted them and started shouting at them and threatening them due to their clothing.
Met with the shouts and threats the three 15-year-olds became terrified, and started crying and running in panic.
In light of the report, the police opened a quick investigation that located the suspect and led to his arrest on Wednesday morning.
Under investigation he connected himself to the incident, and on Wednesday morning he is to be brought in for a hearing at the Beit Shemesh Magistrate's Court.
Thank goodness the police acted responsibly this time. Any crackpot who tries to follow in Islam's footsteps by imposing a variation of sharia upon people whose dress styles he doesn't like should be seriously penalized for causing a ruckus over petty nonsense.
