6 Year Old Yehuda Applebaum Killed by Bus in Beit Shemesh

Tragedy struck Beit Shemesh on Thursday morning, when a 6-year-old boy and his father were struck by an Egged bus. Tragically, the boy was R”L pronounced dead on the scene.
Magen David Adom and United Hatzalah responded to the calls just before 8:30AM for struck pedestrians on Nachal Kishon Blvd. in Beit Shemesh.
Arriving emergency personnel found the child pinned under the bus.
Director of United Hatzalah Moshe Teitelbaum was among the first responders at the scene: “This was a particularly difficult scene in which a father and his son, pedestrians, were hit by a bus. Unfortunately, paramedics at the scene were forced to pronounce the child dead due to his massive injuries. United Hatzalah volunteers were able to treat the father of the child who was moderately injured.”
MDA reports that the father, in his 30s, was transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.
Police traffic investigators arrived on the scene to begin collecting evidence to piece together the fatal incident, but it appears that the child had apparently been crossing the street with his father.
 The Levaya was held on Thursday afternoon

It happens often that we have people saying that frumkeit is bad, it doesn't work for them, all the rabanim are corrupt,etc.
Then, you post a nice story about a certain rav, showing how they care or do chesed, etc, and then the haters say, "he was one of the select few good ones," or "he was one of the true tzadikim."

Maybe if you post enough of those stories, these people will realize that there are many of these, "few good frum tzadikim," and they will realize that the corrupt ones are the real "few"

It's not that the corrupt are 'the few', it's just that the many don't seem to care and call them out on their behaviour. It's called 'enabling'

Aren't those two sides of the same coin? How does your comment make sense?do you mean, yes the corrupt are few?
