    It's really quite simple. Approximately 2% of sexual harassment cases are reported because of the ordeal involved in going to the police: testimony, appeals, etc. People who felt they were mistreated (though we're not sure if it was legally or ethically) chose to come to takana and not the police to ask for help. The forum, as a community institution fulfilled its responsibility to its community by doing what it could to: a. neutralize the situation and b. keep the community intact (please don't try bringing any examples of similar instances in secular communities where there was no rift, that is irrelevant, there is a divide widening right now). When they saw the community was still in danger they took further steps. Even if these were legal as opposed to ethical offenses, takana had no moral responsibility to go to police, that is not their job. Let's not take every biased chance we can to rip apart religious zionists thoush I know that would bring many people here great pleasure
