The problem is that Synagogue, Federations, JCC's, and other Jewish organizations don't always do a thorough criminal background check to weed out potential employees, who may have a history of violence, are sexual predators, abuse drugs, have anti-semitic attitudes, or are sociopaths. You get what you pay for; if organizations wants to employ those from the bottom of the barrel, problems can arise.

Article fails to mention it was a Yid coming out from minyan - the article is ambiguous enough to make it sound like two goyim fighting

Bs'd. There are so many 'akum' grocery workers, restaurant workers, domestic help, etc. with access to our food and homes- while large numbers of yidden are paying with food stamps. Something is wrong with this picture.

Not really. 'Acum' as you call them, are asking for much lower compensation for the same work or, much more often, are willing to do work that almost no yid will accept. So if I have a Polish shiksa wash my bathrooms for $11/hour so that my wife doesn't have to, what is really wrong with such picture?
