The following is being reprinted with the permission of its author.
The intent in reposting is related to comments made under the Request for Information below and a possible connection to this morning’s fire in Midwood.
We have no way to know if the allegations in the comments section are correct and have therefore done our best to redact unverified allegations or responses to them. We are not posting with intent to harm, defame, injure, slander, hurt, abuse or otherwise; but rather to assist law enforcement in ascertaining what happened.
If the allegations are correct, we sincerely hope that the victim is handled with extreme care. It is our belief that the Yeshiva community he attended would have reason for him to be permanently unable to tell his story. If he is actually an arsonist, he still may have a story to tell.
If the allegations are deemed incorrect, we will gladly post an apology, correction, redaction or whatever is required and will do so publicly. We do not take matters of this sort lightly.
