They call themselves "Shomrim" (protectors), they should call themselves "Mazikim" (harmful)! In a report in today's Daily News, Shomrim advocate Jacob Daskel told the reporter, "The community doesn't go to the police with these names because the rabbis don't let you. It's not right," .

A Jewish patrol in Borough Park keeps a list of suspected child predators, but Levi Aron's name wasn't on it, the Daily News has learned.
"No one ever complained to us about him," Borough Park Shomrim member Jacob Daskel said.
The list has about 15 names. It was compiled by Shomrim members and is not shared with the NYPD because some rabbis oppose civilian police involvement.
"The community doesn't go to the police with these names because the rabbis don't let you. It's not right," Daskel said.
He said when a resident tells Shomrim they suspect someone is a molester, the patrol finds a picture and shows it to area kids, trying to substantiate the allegation.
"We consider Shomrim and Hatzolah [the Jewish ambulance service] family. So you go to family first," said Hershkowitz.
He stressed that the rules apply only when a life isn't in danger. "Nothing supersedes an emergency," he said.
Leiby Kletzky's family first reported his disappearance to Shomrim. The patrol notified cops three hours later. "We have no problem with Shomrim being notified but we'd like to be notified as well," said Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. But in Leiby's case, he said, the delay didn't make a difference.
Rabbis said their followers talk to Shomrim because they trust it to get the job done.
"If you call 911 they are not personally involved in your problem. But if you call Shomrim, every job is number one," said Bernard Freilich, a Jewish liaison to the NYPD. "But my position is to always call the cops."
Now read something even more disturbing from"Vosizneias" reported by Sandy Eller The report says that 2 yeshiva boys, actually saw Levi Aron's car and instead of reporting it to the Police, they reported it to Shomrim, and inquired about the Honda, and Shomrim couldn't confirm it and Shomrim didn't follow up..... this was during a very critical time .....Police may have been able to save little Leiby Kletzky had they known.. I highlighted in red the problem: Read:
While Police Commissioner Raymond Kelley publicly credited Shomrim for locating the gold car that was used to lure Leibby Kletzky HY’D to his death, according to Yiddish weekly newspaper ‘Der Yid’, it was a pair of Flatbush yeshiva bochurim who spotted the car and provided Shomrim with the license plate number of the vehicle. The two young men, who are brothers, joined the search after watching video of the missing boy being lured into a car on Vos Iz Neias. according to their account.
As the pair drove around Flatbush, they noticed a car that fit the description parked on East 3rd Street. Taking pictures and video of the car, they parked further down the one way street, deciding to watch for any passing cars that might match the appearance of the vehicle they had seen on Vos Iz Neias. During that time, the gold car they had photographed never passed their vehicle.
The pair drove to East 2nd Street, between Cortelyou Road and Avenue C and the same vehicle they had first seen on East 3rd Street was now parked on East 2nd Street. Wondering how the car had gotten there without having passed them on East 3rd Street they decided paid closer attention, noticing a man wearing a cap who not only appeared to be nervous but also resembled the man they had seen on the video of Leibby’s disappearance.
As the man entered a house, the brothers debated what to do. Driving past the house again, they noted that the gold Honda that had first been parked on East 3rd and then on East 2nd was now nowhere to be found. A call to Shomrim couldn’t confirm that the vehicle in question was a Honda and, discouraged, the two decided to return home.
As they looked for parking on their block, the two saw a member of Shomrim and several reporters from Der Yid. Approaching the group, the brothers showed them the video of the car on they had taken on East 2nd Street. The license plate number was called into Shomrim at 1:42 AM and just a short time later, the police arrived at Levi Aron’s house where the gruesome discovery was made.
