Undoubtedly taking a cue from Saudi Arabia's Mutaween, some overly-moralistic busy-bodies have taken to the streets of Hassid areas of Brooklyn to, essentially, bully businesses into helping them impose "modesty", i.e. dress codes, for women and behave in "responsible" ways. Which basically translates to "impose upon and subjugate women".
I'll note that the Hassidim are not generally known for embracing women's lib. But still? Breaking into homes and stealing - oh, sorry "confiscating" - offending electronic devices isn't kosher. neither
These people aren't "Gut’s polizei" (God's police). They're thugs, bullies, thieves and criminals. Employing the tactics of street thugs simply can't be considered "God's will". It can be, and should be, considered an indictable offense.
