KOLKO IN CUSTODY

Rabbi1207061

Rabbi Yehuda Kolko on his way to jail after his arrest for child abuse and endangerment.

The New York Times adds:

A Brooklyn rabbi was arrested yesterday and charged with multiple counts of child sexual abuse, the police said. Rabbi Joel Kolko, 60, of Yeshiva-Mesivta Torah Temimah, a private school in Brooklyn, is accused of molesting a 9-year-old boy who was a student of his in the 2002-03 school year, the police said. The boy’s parents reported the incident last month, the police said. The police said a 31-year-old man also claimed to have been abused by the rabbi, once as a child, and once earlier this year when the man confronted the rabbi. Rabbi Kolko was charged with four counts of sexual abuse and one count of endangering the welfare of a child, the police said. Phone calls to the rabbi’s home were not returned.

    What do you think will happen to RPS? You know, the “gadol” who was poseik that since Kolko didn’t penetrate his victims, he really didn’t do anything all that bad.

    /Is Kolko out on bail?
    //If so, who bailed him out? YTT?

    I don’t know, nigritude. Most likely the Israelis will extradite a 90 year old rabbi to America because he turned a blind eye to abuse 20 years ago.

    Can’t wait to hear the charedi response to this. If this doesn’t have his enablers shaking in their shoes, nothing will. Delighted the parents avoided the whole charedi mafia and went straight to the DA/police. This made my Shabbos!

    It only took one abuser to prove that he was abused by a Catholic priest- then the dam broke!!
    It is at least a fraction of a billion dollars that has been sucked out of the Catholic Church.
    The nightmare still is continuing fo the C Church

    NU asks:

    “Is Kolko out on bail? If so, who bailed him out? YTT?” Right now, he is probably in central booking waiting for arraignment, when bail will be set. The arraignment process can take up to 24 hours, depending on how clogged the court is. Normally bail for a first-time arrestee is nil or very low; since Kolko is a flight risk, he will be asked to surrender his passport. Also, he will be served with an order of protection ordering to keep away from the complainant. He violates that and they can put him in jail, bail or no.

    Rubbing against a kid with one’s erect penis, with one’s clothes on, is מותר according to the “gadol” RPB.

    /I’m sure RPB wouldn’t have any problem with someone doing the same to his grandchildren
    //Will someone please keep this man away from children!

  7. You got to respect Kolko for flashing the shatnes label.
