No Daat Less Torah Part II
First I have to make a slight retraction. I personally never spoke with Officer Walsh. He was a little upset that I had said that I had. My wife is the one who has been in contact with Officer Walsh. Any miscommunications that have happened on account of that I take full credit and responsibility for. The Washington Jewish Week says that they spoke with the Police Spokesperson, who is Officer Walsh. However there is a problem with that. He denies that he spoke to anyone but my wife before last night, and then David(still not Daniel) Eidensohn last night, and here is the email to prove it.
When my wife asked last night if any report had been filed he responded by saying that there was a report that there was an assault on the 200 block of Linden Lane. The report claims that three suspects dressed in black at least one of whom had a masked face approached an alleged victim, pushed him, and broke his glasses, at which point he fled the scene. The police were dispatched but found insufficient evidence that an assault had take place and they have been unable to find any suspects matching the description.
This is why officially they are saying that an assault has not taken place. They are still investigating the matter, which means they are still looking for suspects, and they are also looking to see if it is a false report.
Officer Walsh promised to keep my wife up to date on any developments, but otherwise said that there is nothing more to report.
I think his one line about the “Daat Torah” blog pretty much sums it up, hysterical. If the Police Spokesman is calling it hysterical there isn’t a great deal more to say. It is a mountain being made out of a mole hill suggesting conspiracies and all sorts of things from an alleged incident against an alleged victim that the police have insufficient evidence to even say happened.
So once again I have to ask, is this “Daat Torah”? Is this the way of Torah? Where does the Torah give approbation to say all kinds of nasty things about a woman and her family based on an as yet unsubstantiated claim?
