It was a conspiracy and someone should pay. Attorney General Letitia James is the one to make sure it happens.
As disturbing as it is to know that Buffalo police and the Catholic Church were engaged in a depraved and illegal policy to shield priests from criminal prosecution, it doesnt really come as a surprise....
....police in Buffalo went along, too. Cops here were under orders not to arrest Catholic priests but, instead, to report their crimes to the local bishop who could then continue the dirty work of covering it up. Whether any pedophiles were among those who were freed from liability has not been established, but what is clear is that, despite the numbers of priests credibly accused, few were ever held to account.
Can anyone believe that it didnt happen here? More than 100 priests have been implicated as child molesters in Western New York and hardly a one spent even a night behind bars.

Like the NYAG Letecia James is ever going to do anything to help the people of NY.
All she cares about is “Get Trump” and “Support Illegal Aliens”
That’s the dem strategy at every level of govt when running for office.
Well, she’s torn. She hates Christians, but loves buggery.
What to do?
Why would they protect them? Was it because they were doing the same thing?

Just the ones we know about.
Sad part is this is rampet worldwide.
My reading of the situation is that this area was heavily Catholic. The PD was likely also staffed mostly by Catholics and thus held the Catholic hierarchy in some reverential awe. Any unpleasantness was sent back to the hierarchy to deal with. On an earlier thread one of them said it was the way things were done. Priests seen as being from God I guess were above mere human law or something.
I guess they missed that part in the catechism where it says that a just law requires obedience under pain of sin.
Do a web search for the following terms:
Mary Jo White
The cover-ups go way beyond the police. Those within the Church who have attempted to blow the whistled on homosexual child molesters within the priesthood have come to a bad end—and then had that end covered up by the Democrat machine.
Go ahead, look into it. I dare you.
It was a conspiracy and someone should pay
Yep, clericalism ie reverence for the clergy as instruments of the divine above civilians is a mental illness that caused the cover up here.
This has been a problem for centuries but was really bad under Paul VI and John Paul II. Those two men enabled some of the most disgusting criminal corruption in the world.
Thanks for the info on the term.
