KOLKO PLEADS INNOCENT; YESHIVA DENIES KNOWING OF ABUSE OR ALLEGATIONS; BAIL? 5K

That’s right. Rabbi Yehuda Kolko claims he’s innocent, Rabbi Yaakov Applegrad, the administrator of Yeshiva Torah Temimah, claims the yeshiva had no knowledge of abuse or allegations, and a judge has set a ridiculously low bail – $5000. Kolko had to surrender his passport, because he’s considered a flight risk. That shouldn’t stop him from fleeing, though. Haredim have interesting ways of beating that problem. Look for Kolko to turn up in Israel in the not too distant future.

Here’s the big question: Who asked for the low bail? Let’s hope it wasn’t the Brooklyn DA.

Also, watch the brief CBS News video linked here. Pay careful attention to Rabbi Yaakov Applegrad’s eyes and body language when he denies the yeshivia knew about Kolko’s abuse. Then ask yourself a question: Do you want Yaakov Applegrad in any position of communal responibility? I don’t think so.

    Yeah, you said it man, the HAREDIM “have interesting ways” of fleeing bail. Can’t think of any particular story of that, but were SURE it happens all the time. After all HAREDIM are being arrested everyday. No?

    Oh yeah, and the zionist state welcomes u.s. fugitives. They NEVER deport JEWS to America. Never heard of a story of that State deporting. Right?

    This blog says that the judge let Kolko off easy because he believes it was just a media inspired event. They also dug up all kinds of dirt on the judge who is known to go easy on criminals & was in trouble for judicial misconduct.

    Nail, So you already are pre-answering the why explanation that Rabbi Kolko will be exonerated. Always good to prepare in advance. Good job.

    Joseph:
    “”Never heard of a story of that State deporting. Right?””
    Wrong, for instance the Los Angeles bombers were deported-tried and convicted-life in prison. Meyer Lansky too was deported!!!
    Besides NOBODY like CHILD MOLESTORS now if it was money laundering well maybe they don’t get deported. Kolko shows up in Israel he will be put right back on the plane.

    Isa, I made that remark sarcastically. You are correct. My point was to refute FailedMessiah who said in the original article above Rabbi Kolko may run to Israel. What good would that do? The zionists deport Jews.

    Note that all my posts above were made with sarcasm.
