Did anyone else see those flyers on the floor around Flatbush about the abuse law being voted on soon?

Well did you?

We did. I was actually walking with one of my children. We decided to laugh at the people running around collected them to throw out, including an elderly woman (when I say that she looked to be in her 60s without any wig it seemed) who was running around particularly to throw them out. Along with that we saw a Hot Chanie, a few Oreos, and also someone who apparently yelled at his children to not even look at them and throw them out in all haste while their mother apparently disagreed.

Yeah so the essence of the letter was to tell people that there is a law that would increase the statute of limitations from only a few years to a while 10 years. And who is against this ability to go after woman who abuse men, men who abuse women, and people who abuse children? The Agudah Israel – and who have they joined forces with? The Catholic Church. Forget about the fact that also many prominent Jewish Organizations won’t even take a stance on the issue.
