[CHI] During the seminar on combating child abuse in the Crown Heights community this past Sunday, attorney Elie Poltrack stood up and berated District Attorney Charles Hynes over his indictment of Shmira member Yitzchok Shuchat.
After a heated back-and-forth between the D. A. and Mr. Poltrack, the chair of the seminar requested that the focus of the meeting shift back to the cause of child abuse prevention, to the noted approval of most present.
This is what struck me upon reviewing the video above…
Notice: Shmira coordinator Yaakov (a.k.a. Yanky) Prager is keeping a very safe distance away (about 10 feet) from Poltorak. Shouldn’t Prager be standing by Poltoraks side in a show of support, why is he in a ‘pushed back position’*.
And where are all the Shmira members for their friend in dire need, wasn’t this event held on a Sunday, surly a bunch of folks who have time to volunteer for a community patrol would and could make some time to come show some support for a a fellow member (in Poltoraks words “a Hero in the community”) whose facing a possible prosecution and could end up in jail. Unless of-course they don’t really care, like the rest of use.
Where is Shuchats good friend and partner in crime Leib Skoblo? Where is Chanina Sperlin, Eli Cohen, Yossi Stern, Barry Sugar? Where has all of Shuchat “friends” gone?
* Push Back Position: If the body is pulled back when the shoulders are pulled back, particularly when the person is up against the wall, this can indicate a desire to hide the body and not be seen, or otherwise defensively move it out of harm’s way.
Is this (Prager) the big brave leader of the shmira mesira? Is this the guy thats going to have Shuchats back?
It’s no wonder he sends his little minions, who don’t know better to do all the dirty work. He’s a coward!
Now there sits a little man (hands folded in defense position) who just got a smack down.
It just hit me, where was Poltorak (and his partner Huebner) when this whole Shuchat thing went down? Why weren’t they there to help him then, why didn’t they offer to represent him, to turn him in etc…? Unless of-course as previously suspected Shuchat was advised to flee, there was some type of agenda in play here? Oh wait, they were also busy at the time orchestrating the Shomrim Six Mesira.
UPDATE 6/15/12: Someone made an interesting point regarding this Shuchat story, which deserves more then being placed in the comment section bellow.
The individuals who advised Shuchat to run, ruined his life. Had he not ran he would have been charged with a misdemeanor and gone home that night. We don’t have to look so far for evidence of this. The attack and assault of Efraim Setton on B.L. was much more aggressive (harmful) then what is alleged Shuchat did to Andrew Charles and THIS is all Setton got sentenced for, it’s a joke. Again, those that advised Shuchat to run are idiots and it is they and only they who are responsible for ruining his life.
