Rabbi Elior Chen, his wife and three of his followers have been indicted by Israeli authorities on child abuse charges. Chen fled to Brazil, but will be extradited back to Israel. The Chen case has got to be the mother of all child abuse cases. According to the Jerusalem Post, here is what Chen and his followers have been accused of:

Chen and his followers are suspected of savagely and systematically beating two brothers, aged three and four, with hammers, knives and other instruments for months, until the younger boy lost consciousness in March.

They are also suspected of the severe abuse of other children in the family.

The three-year-old suffered permanent brain damage as a result of the abuse, and is expected to remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.

The mother forced her children to eat feces, locked them in a suitcase for three days - letting them out only for brief periods of time - repeatedly beat, whipped, and shook them, burned their hands with a lighter and a heater, and gave them freezing showers, according to the charge sheet.

The mother and Chen and his 'educators' are also suspected of pouring salt on the three-year-old's burn wounds, stuffing his mouth with a kippa and sealing it with masking tape, as well as giving the children alcoholic drinks until they vomited.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Let the punishment fit the crime! No punishment in this case would be too severe. It would be fitting for these monsters to be forced to eat shit and to be bludgeoned for months until they are reduced to a vegetative state. For the Chen group, that's what I would call justice!
