The father was interrogated and released with no charge. Fortunately he is home now to take care of the children. One thing that hasn't been mentioned here. The father had been separated from his wife recently. He was away from home when the children were abused, and two other men had moved into the home at "rabbi" Chen's direction to help the mother "discipline" the children.

People who react emotionally without knowing or caring about the facts are the reason there are lynch mobs.

Who said anything about lynch mobs? The first thing that needs to be done in a case of severe child abuse is to separate the kids from the people who may have harmed them or will continue to harm them. Then, after initial investigation, if either of the parents (or other close relatives) is determined to be safe for the children, then the kids can be remanded to their custody. Exactly as was done in this case.
