A Sad Day As "Jewish Community Watch" Goes Dark

Today I learned that the Jewish Community Watch website went down supposedly due to a "lack of funding."

This is probably bogus, as the commenters on the page noted. A website costs almost nothing to maintain. There was speculation about legal action.

According to CrownHeightsInfo, which reported the story, a source within the JCW organization says that even if monies were raised, the site would probably not reopen.

JCW provoked anger among some, for obvious reasons. But it also performed a critical social service, of raising awareness of the problem of child molestation. Awareness breeds vigilance.

The website still contains a link to an email address where people can reach out for more information.

Here is a link to the Facebook page, which currently has 7,121 likes.

Let's support survivors of abuse. 

Let's fight to put all pedophiles in jail and keep them away from those who too often can neither speak nor protect themselves.
