Very confusing article. Some could understand from it that there wasn't a spitting incident. But the article itself has a link to video of a spitting incident.
So now we have the spitting Ramat Beit Shemesh nutjobs, and the lying religious politician saying it never happened, despite the evidence and the police complaint. Unfortunately, the police often seem to close complaints for no apparent reason, citing "lack of public interest" or (as in this case) the lie of "the two sides deciding not to pursue the case further".
There were definitely incidents of spitting by these "tzadikim". But that wasn't the worst thing. The kids who were under siege for four months are still feeling the trauma. I actually saw one young girl (from Orot) jump at the sight of a Chasid. That is the lasting legacy these people left.
