New Hampshire cases of sexual assault of a minor, the statute of limitations starts 22 years after the victim turns 18

I THOUGHT I HEARD IT ALL!

http://womensrights.change.org/blog/view/teenager_forced_to_apologize_to_her_church_for_being_raped

In 1997, 15-year-old Tina Anderson became pregnant after being raped repeatedly by an older man she knew from church. Shockingly, when her pastor found out, he forced her to apologize in front of the entire congregation in Concord, New Hampshire, and then promptly helped whisk her away to live in Colorado.

According to Tina, the first time she was raped by Ernest Willis, it was in the backseat of his car after he'd given her a driving lesson. She didn't tell anyone because she was terrified that she'd be blamed. After being raped by Willis again, Tina became pregnant. Willis, ever the vile human-being, offered to drive her out-of-state for an abortion or to punch her in the stomach to cause a miscarriage. It was at this point that Tina confided in her mother, who in turn notified their pastor, Chuck Phelps.

It turns out, she was right was right to fear being blamed. In a disgusting turn of events, Phelps told Tina she would have to go before the entire congregation to apologize for her sins. Excuse me? It seems that Phelps explained to Tina that while Willis "may have been 99 percent responsible," she needs to confess to her "1 percent guilt in the situation."

After Tina acquiesced in this humiliating act of victim-blaming, the church and her family shipped her off to live in Colorado against her wishes, where she was instructed to give the baby up for adoption. While Phelps did contact the police about Willis — you know, since he was 99% guilty and all — it became nearly impossible for them to do anything about it since Tina was now hidden away in Colorado.

This appalling story is finally seeing the light of day because Tina Anderson decided to come forward this year. Sadly, it wasn't until this February that Tina truly realized that the assault on her was, in fact, zero percent her responsibility. That's when she decided it was time to share her experience with others and to seek justice for what had happened to her as a teenager.

You might have noticed that I am using her real name, something highly unusual in rape cases because victims' names are protected. This is because Tina wanted it this way. She wanted you to know exactly who she is and what was done to her, not only by Ernest Willis, but by those she entrusted to protect her.

Since Tina came forward, Willis has been arrested and released on bail. In New Hampshire, in cases of sexual assault of a minor, the statute of limitations does not run out until 22 years after the victim turns 18. Just as importantly, police are investigating exactly how much church leaders knew about the rape. Of course, if the adults in Concord — meaning Phelps, Tina's family, and every church congregant who heard Tina's "confession" and sat silent — had acted compassionately and responsibly back in 1997, they would have saved Tina over a decade of heartache and their community a lifetime of guilt.

The indicted former CEO of the SK Foods tomato products company is trying to get a hold of all correspondence the company had with hashgochos as part of his defense strategy.

SK sold to the major companies under OU & OK.

Is he trying to rat out the hashgochos or are they in cahoots to protect each other or what else could be behind this?

Tropper bin pimpin' said...

All kinds of funny stuff going on with Kol Yaakov. A separate dispute between some members of the board against Tropper. The appointment of Rabbi Winer, a very respected Monsey Rov as director of EJF. Otherwise EJF is acting as if their budget has been cut to next to nothing. Tropper lies low, some question as to whether Rabbi Stefansky will continue with Kol Yaakov.

And the Tress claims are marginal, according to one commentator "Watcher" who may be a Tropper troll, since Shmuel Boruch is the only one asking for money and he only wants it for himself. And incidentally Rabbi Tropper started Kol Yaakov with Hatzaddik Rav Avrohom Gershon Tress, but Tropper was there from day one and so Mrs. Tress will never expect to push him out. She knows the scoop.

This is disputed by Tropper nemesis RaP because almost everyone who really knows the story of KOl Yaakov's founding knows that Tropper was HIRED by Tress AFTER Tress already set up Kol Yaakov but then the shoving and jockeying started since Tropper can't stop for a moment and has to be the top banana and tragically Rabbi tress died, who knows if it wasn't from the stress that Tropper was giving to Tress. Seems that Watcher may be a Tropper plant the way he talks about the widow of the honorable Rabbi Tress as if she is a nothing. She knows what she is doing and wouldn't launch a din Torah just to settle scores. She has a valid claim based on her husbands first and so far only known single founder of Kol Yaakov that then got hijacked by Tropper for his own nefarious ends.

Time will definitely tell, it's scarily too quiet right now.

RaP adds: Tropper is still actually married to his 1st wife Leah Margolin and got hitched the 2nd time to Liba/Luarel Blond based on a still highly suspect and questionable "heter meah rabbonim" with many suspicious signatures probably forged -- forging is a Tropper speciality.

The blogress called Bassy the Haredi Slayer claims that Tropper was diverting millions of dollars from Horizons.edu (college accredited by AARTSY FARTSY / the Association of Advanced Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools) to Kol Yaakov and she wants the Department of Justice to look into it.

Spotlight on the Queens Vaad said...

Yesterday, the Queens Vaad issued an emergency email alert that they pulled the hashgocho "effective immediately" from both Piyaz restaurant and Falafel Kitchen (same owner) for "multiple policy violations".

No apologies are in order for not abiding by Rabbi Schwartz's executive order to cover up kashrus scandals. That would make things too convenient for the Queens Vaad when hard hitting questions need to be asked.

The freye chayos who own Piyaz & Falefel Kitchen were not trusted to have the keys to their own restaurants. Then they scream at and berate customers who inquire about kashrus, sometimes telling them to leave because they will not be served.

Could someone remind us why people like this should be given a teudah in the fir$t place? Vo$ zog$t du?

Then the mashgiach has to travel overseas and things get completely chaotic. The temp mashgiach then quits because he was being treated like garbage by the owners.

The Queens Vaad comes down to check things out and discovers there is no mashgiach, after being lied to and sent on a wild goose chase.

The Queens Vaad should have never allowed a situation to develop where there is no mashgiach, even for an hour or a minute.

But then again, this is par for the course considering some of the "kedoshei elyon" non-orthodox Jews who quietly make Vaad approval with no mashgiach either.

What a shote !

Kashrus agencies should stick to kashrus and check what the owners are doing with their money or with whom they are having sex.

If you do not like what the owners are doing with their money organize a boycott, but it has nothing to do with kashrus of the product.

I stopped buying the Trader Joe’s OU certified pomegranate juice from Turkey because of their anti Israel stance but it has nothing to do with kashrus.

There was an idiot here that was complaining about some food establishment in Queens that had hasgacha despite the fact that establishment carried the Jewish Week which is supposedly ocher yisroel publication.

WTF

Fact Checker said...

"There was an idiot here that was complaining about some food establishment in Queens that had hasgacha despite the fact that establishment carried the Jewish Week which is supposedly ocher yisroel publication."

To the best of my knowledge there was no such statement ever made here but there was a remotely similar statement made at Yudel's blog. Someone complained over there about a secular Jewish newspaper from Long Island (not The Jewish Week) which was promoting gay Jewish "marriage" on the front page. The 5 Towns Vaad was asked to merely bring it to the attention of restaurants & supermarkets that stacks of the paper were dropped off by them to disseminate, and the baal habatim would surely remove the papers of their own volition. An unnamed shul rabbi-coward of the 5TV refused to do anything of the sort and was hiding behind the mouthpiece secretary with all kinds of lame excuses. The 5TV was specifically told to not tie this to any condition of the hashgocho but the rabbi-coward didn't have the moral courage to do the right thing.

The poster mentioned that the Queens Vaad had the same problem but he didn't bother calling them because they are predictably useless and he originally had better aspirations for the 5 Towns Vaad.

Helen Thomas, yemach shmah said...

http://www.jta.org/news/article/2010/06/08/2739500/helen-thomas-enter-the-maverick-exit-the-bigot

It was the (Conservative) rabbi with a camera who went around asking notables if they had any "comments on Israel."

As the world now knows, Helen Thomas sure did.

"Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine," the doyenne of the Washington press corps laughed. "Remember, these people are occupied & it's their land."

Nesenoff asked where they should go.

"Go home," she responded.

Thomas said, “Poland, Germany,” & after more prompting, added “and America & everywhere else.”

The rabbi didn’t post the video until June 3, but it quickly gained national attention, unleashing a flurry of demands for Thomas’ dismissal.

On Monday, Thomas, 89, heeded the calls & quit, according to her employer, the Hearst Corp.

The Nesenoff video went viral after being picked up by Yidwithlid, a popular site run by conservative commentator Sammy Benoit & then posted to the hyper-popular video site Breitbart.

First out of the box was B'nai B'rith, which issued a June 4 statement from president Dennis Glick, demanding Thomas be fired.

A slew of other Jewish organizations followed with their own condemnations. Officials of 2 administrations - Ari Fleischer of the Bush administration & Lanny Davis of the Clinton administration - also slammed Thomas & called for her to be sacked.

The death knell for Thomas' career came when she found herself criticized on liberal websites such as Huffington Post & Talking Points Memo, which have long lauded her for asking discomfiting questions of George W. Bush during the Iraq War.

Joe Klein, the Time magazine scribe who has been a tough critic of Israel, called her views "odious" & said she should no longer have the privilege, accorded by the White House Correspondents Association, of a front row center seat.

Thomas' apology, posted June 4, preceded most broadsides against her.

"I deeply regret comments I made last week regarding Israelis & the Palestinians. They don't reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect & tolerance. May that day come soon."

Critics said it didn't go far enough.

After a series of blows, it was clear her career was finished.

On Sunday, Thomas was dropped by her speaking agent, Nine Speakers. The following day, Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Md. was withdrawing its invitation to Thomas to be commencement speaker.

The final blow was a one-two: The White House Correspondents Association met to consider her front-row center perch. And White House spokesman Robert Gibbs called the remarks "offensive & reprehensible."

Hearst announced her retirement.

"Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately," said the corporation.

Thomas was a perennial, admired for becoming, during the Kennedy administration, one of the first women to cover the White House beat. She was granted the first question at news conferences.

Thomas, the child of Lebanese immigrants, was known to be a fierce critic of Israel & what she saw as the unwillingness of administrations to speak out against Jerusalem's perceived misdeeds.

Her most recent encounter with Gibbs, after Israel's raid on a Turkish-flagged ship, came after her remarks to Nesenoff but before he revealed them.

She called Israel's raid a "deliberate massacre" & said the White House's expression of "regret" was "pitiful."

Dan Mariaschin, director of B’nai B’rith, said Thomas' comments come as no surprise.

"There's a Yiddish expression, 'What's on your lung is on your tongue. She has a long record of being purposefully hypercritical of Israel."

Another victim of Michael Sabo has come forward. That makes three to date. Sabo is currently at Riker's Island awaiting trial. His arraignment for the new charges which carry 211 counts, is scheduled for 6/25. Despite the irrefutable evidence (pornographic pictures of the victims on his computer), his defenders are trying feverishly to raise pidyon shvuyim funds in case the judge grants bail. Sabo has refused to be re-fingerprinted and his lawyers are claiming that he's become insane. The fingerprinting has been scheduled for 6/15. Meanwhile, Sabo's father is claiming that his son was molested repeatedly by Yudi Kolko (ironically another client of Sabo's attorney, Jeff Schwartz). Sabo slept in the same bunk as Kolko at Camp Silver Lake.

'Nothing Is More Beautiful Than Martyrdom'

Israel-haters are making much of the fact that one of the Turkish "humanitarians" killed last week while attempting to break Israel's naval blockade of Hamas was a U.S. citizen. This, however, was by accident of birth: Furkan Dogan was born in Troy, N.Y., but his parents were Turkish and he grew up in Turkey.

"His brother, Mustafa, told the Turkish news media that he was 'clean-hearted with a happy face,' " the New York Times reported Friday. But a report from the Middle East Research Institute says he was far from the all-American boy the Israel-haters are making him out to be. Memri quotes Hussein Orish of IHH, the Turkish outfit that instigated the flotilla:

"One of the martyrs was 19 years old. We've just found his last diary in his suitcase. The last lines he wrote before the attack were: 'Only a short time left before martyrdom. This is the most important stage of my life. Nothing is more beautiful than martyrdom, except for one's love for one's mother. But I don't know what is sweeter--my mother or martyrdom.' This was the last thing that the martyr Furkan wrote, and the last thing said by our brothers. . . ."

"Clean-hearted" indeed!

Anti-Canadian Rallies Across Israel--Now That Would Be News

"Hundreds Protest at anti-Israeli Rallies Across Canada"--headline, CanWest News Service, June 5

Great Moments in Editorial Writing

"Israel's blockade of Gaza is crumbling," opines the Washington Post:

But the solution is not as simple as simply ending the checks on sea and land traffic by Israel. What's needed is a new regime that addresses the legitimate needs of Palestinians in Gaza without further empowering Hamas and its patron, Iran.

Eureka! It's that simple. If only someone had thought of this before.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times editorial page offers these deep thoughts:

It's a drumbeat on the right: The Obama administration is in deliberate denial about the existence of "Islamic terrorism." . . . There is some truth in this criticism. The administration has assiduously avoided terms that recognize the distinct threat posed by those who cite Islam as a rationalization for terror. . . .

So what should the proper terminology be? How about "terrorism, carried out in the name of Islam"?

Another problem solved. Now can we send a team of editorialists to the Gulf of Mexico to plug that damn hole?

Yehuda Crammer said...

http://menmedia.co.uk/manchestereveningnews/news/crime/s/1242351_unmasked_the_bankrupt_doctor_with_hidden_fortune

A high profile psychologist who hid a lucrative property portfolio from the authorities after being made bankrupt has been jailed.

Dr Yehuda Crammer – who practised from private clinics in Harley Street, London and St John Street, Manchester – was declared bankrupt after failing to pay an £800,000 debt. But it has emerged he owned a string of properties which he did not reveal and which he used to run up another £319,000 in loans from high street banks over four years.

Crammer, 64, made up aliases to disguise the fact that he was bankrupt from lenders.

On a bankruptcy notice in the London Gazette in 2009, he had 49 false names.

He also splashed out on luxury homes in Marbella and Majorca using money borrowed from Spanish banks.

He has so far paid none of his debts, claiming he is ‘too sick’ to cooperate with the authorities.

But the court heard he has made money from tenants in his properties and earned consulting fees from the clinics. Crammer, of Danesway, Prestwich, admitted failing to disclose capital assets and failing to deliver up bank and credit card accounts at Manchester Crown Court and was sentenced to 30 months in jail.

The court heard that days after he was made bankrupt in 2004 he began engineering the sale of three flats he owned at Kings Road, Prestwich, to one of his own false identities ‘Yehuda Ido Kramer’, so that his creditors could not take it from him.

He then remortgaged the flats for £156,000 with the Royal Bank of Scotland.

By 2008 he had run up £319,000 debts with HBOS and Northern Rock while bankrupt.

He did so by borrowing money under fake names.

Crammer claimed that paying dowries for four daughters had left him under financial pressure.

Allamakee County threatens tax sale of Agri Star plant

Jun 09, 2010 3:06 pm by Dave Dewitte.

Allamakee County is taking its beef with the new owner of the former Agriprocessors plant over $577,872.73 in unpaid taxes to the court of public opinion.

The county issued a sternly worded statement Thursday, June 9, through a law firm hired to help with the collection effort against SHF Industries, which operates the plant as Agri Star Meat & Poultry LLC.

“All property owners in Allamakee County, whether large or small, are expected to pay property taxes owed,” the statement said. It also invited investors to bid on the kosher slaughterhouse at a tax sale on June 31.

SHF Industries LLC bought the plant in August 2009 out of the bankruptcy of Agriprocessors Inc. The company is owned by Montreal businessman Hershey Friedman.

SHF said it has never received a tax bill for the property, and has determined that the county was continuing to bill Agriprocessors and a related real estate company, Neville Properties.

“As is common in bankruptcy sales, the sale was free and clear of any and all liens, claims and encumbrances,” said SHF’s New York-based attorney, Shalom Jacob, in a prepared statement.

Furthermore, the company said it’s not responsible for paying the taxes.

“It is our position we are not responsible for any unpaid taxes that were accrued under the previous owners,” Jacob said.

SHF has threatened to seek a court injunction to halt the tax sale, according to the county’s statement from Attorney Wesley Huisinga of Shuttleworth & Ingersoll PLC, Cedar Rapids.

"People trust Hasids... I know how this works... In the five years that I studied Yeshiva in London, I was never asked by customs to open my bags," said ex-Hasid Luzer Twersky, age 24.

Twersky's observation was ironically timed given his state when I talked to him, descending the stairs of New York City central booking. He had just spent a night behind bars for driving with a suspended license.

Though he left his wife and two children along with the rest of the Hasidic community almost two years ago, he still maintains his beard and payos (side curls).

"It gives me an edge in social settings... and with women," he slyly remarks. Twersky and his wife were both chaste when they wed. Since the start of his self-imposed exile, Twersky has been tempted by religiously forbidden fruits. He's had relationships with seven (shiksa) women, "not counting a few one night stands."

For a man who just spent 19 hours in jail, as he had when we talked, he was in a good mood. It showed. Peyos neatly coiled, still dressed in his Hasidic garb, he excitedly updated his Twitter followers and 539 Facebook friends via Blackberry. "You guys should spend a night in central booking, it's quite an experience!"

His head cocked, a smile playing on his lips: "It's been a long night. I need a coffee and a cigarette. And I've got to see my Shiksa."

Tonight at the Atrium in Monsey is a "pidyon shvuyim" fundraiser hosted by the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation.

Professor Lawrence Reisman blogs that he called the Foundation to complain that the Chofetz Chaim took geneivos very seriously. They tried to mach avek any connection to themselves except for providing audio-video hookups. It is possible that the other host, Pinny Lipschutz, exaggerated their connection on the flyer.

The speakers include a rov from Kiryas Yoel to appeal to the Satmar oylam, Rav Weissmandl who is slyly called only a Rubashkin "supporter" instead of someone who profits handsomely from him and Yerachmiel (Robert) Simins, a Monsey lawyer who is part of Rubashkin's legal super-team.

For those of you following Shmarya's dishoneest coverage of anti-frum quasi-riots in Ramat Aviv, here are the facts ...

There are a bunch of hard core secular nutcases, who like Shmarya, have such a hatred of Charedim, that they would hold noisy protests against them in the streets because of the "avlah" that a rabbi convinced some chiloni teenagers to become frum.

There are many secular Jews who joined the counter-protests because they are disgusted by the overreaction of these nuts.

I have spoken to 3 of the non-frum who I know personally. One of them is a yored who moved here. He practices virtually no Judaism but tells me the chiloni protesters are out of their minds. I spoke to an El Al executive who joined the counter-rally, who cannot understand what drives the secular nuts to such hatred. And I spoke to a former Wall St executive now living in Ramat Aviv who explained to me how Yediot Ahronot is publishing lies that Shmarya gobbles up. Yediot and Shmarya seized on a secular counter-protester who was "arrested" for "assaulting" a teenager at the anti-frum rally. What actually happened was the self-hating Jewish kid threw a ball full force into the man's face. He is an ex-cop who grabbed the kid, who then started screaming he was being "assaulted". Police initially handcuffed the man but apologized and released him when they determined what actually took place.

Iowa's Deputy Attorney General tells the Forward that he is still investigating the extortion and sex abuse of women & girls that went on at Agriprocessors.

He says that "both" suspects in the case are fugitives.

It is well known that Rubashkin's Palestinian Arab deputy, Hosam Amara, who Rubashkin helped escape to the West Bank, is a suspect. But now it seems that Zeev Levi is the other suspect. Unless, if anyone has heard of another fugitive in the Rubashkin case.
