Does it really have to start out this way?
Yes unfortunately it does.
Today an 8 year old Chassidishe kid who was missing for 2 days was found dismembered. He had been kidnapped by a Frum Jew who apparently panicked when seeing all the missing child alerts and the massive hunt that was going on around Brooklyn, killed the kid and then chopped him into pieces.
Kids are kidnapped for sexual reasons, my memories of my Yeshiva days don’t involve a lot of sex (they do involve a lot of repressed desire though) but sex and Yeshiva are closely related.
Thus it’s the terrible tragedy that happened yesterday and today that will mark this blogs opening statements forever.
