Police arrest 22 Haredi suspects in sex offense cases

The Israeli police have conducted special raids to collar nearly 2 dozen Haredi sex offenders. Predictably, it wasn't without difficulty:
Israeli police were pelted with rocks with strictly Orthodox Jews across four cities in the early hours of Monday morning as they arrested 22 Charedi men suspected of sex crimes against women and children.

The men, who were being sheltered by their various religious communities, were arrested in Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, Betar Illit and Bnei Brak, as residents seeking to prevent the arrests turned on police, hurling projectiles at officers and smashing the windscreens of police vehicles.

The 22 arrested men are aged 20-60 year and in some cases were identified two years ago, but Israel’s tight-knit Orthodox communities have sheltered them from the law. Police say they believe Charedi leaders have also helped conceal their crimes.
Needless to say, this is very serious. Especially considering their supposed attempts to counsel the offenders was unconvincing:
Rabbis and lay leaders in the haredi community reportedly sent the offenders for “counselling,” but support organizations for victims of sexual abuse told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that the treatment rarely meets professional or legal standards.

“Most likely, if the offense wasn’t reported, it is nearly certain that the ‘therapy’ was not provided by a licensed, qualified responsible or an ethically practicing mental health professional,” said Shana Aaronson, Israel Director of Jewish Community Watch, an international organization dealing with child sexual abuse in Jewish communities around the world.

“You know that because any professional licensed mental heath professional in this country would know well that in nearly all cases we are legally obliged to report cases of sexual abuse to the child welfare department.

“Obviously, I’m not familiar with the specifics of any of these cases, and it is certainly possible that the minutiae of a particular case meant that the legal requirement to report did not apply (i.e. if the abuse was committed by a stranger). But it’s extremely unlikely that that is true in 22 cases,” Aaronson said.
When there's that many, and no doubt there's many more felons still at large, it's apparent they were covering up far more cases than what's currently been discovered. And it goes without saying that the insane residents of the Haredi neighborhoods who attacked the authorities during the arrest raids only proved they see nothing wrong with the crimes the felons committed.
