New York Hashidic Jews morally lynch community member who reported child abuse

Hasidic Judaism is one of those ultra-freaky religious sects or rather cults, as it's being evidenced now. Their members are notorious for their pre-modern dressing code, misogyny and extensive hysteric ritualism. 

A New Yorker member of this odd community, Mordechai Jungres, denounced a fellow member of the community to police for sexual abuse of his mentally disabled son. The reaction was totally cult-like, like you could expect from Scientologists and such: Jungres is since then receiving curses and threats for "turning a fellow Jew". 

The first shock came when Mordechai Jungreis learned that his mentally disabled teenage son was being molested in a Jewish ritual bathhouse in Brooklyn. The second came after Mr. Jungreis complained, and the man accused of the abuse was arrested.
Old friends started walking stonily past him and his family on the streets of Williamsburg. Their landlord kicked them out of their apartment. Anonymous messages filled their answering machine, cursing Mr. Jungreis for turning in a fellow Jew. And, he said, the mother of a child in a wheelchair confronted Mr. Jungreis’s mother-in-law, saying the same man had molested her son, and she “did not report this crime, so why did your son-in-law have to?”

These people seem to prefer children with disabilities to suffer sexual abuses at the hands of their members than impart justice (it does not seem that any kind of community justice, i.e. lynching, was implemented instead, what surely means that they are alright with "a fellow Jew" sexually abusing another "fellow Jew").
