  • Investigations into #childsexabuse by #Catholicpriests are spreading across the entire #UnitedStates.

The investigations follow a two-year probe in #Pennsylvania which revealed hundreds of cases of abuse as well as a massive institutional cover-up.

RT reports:  Pennsylvania Attorney General Joshua Shapiro told USA Today that officials from up to 45 states have sought his office’s assistance in prosecuting alleged misconduct by Catholic priests, and alleged cover-ups by the church.

In the #KeystoneState alone, 300 “predator” priests were found to have abused over 1,000 victims in the past 60 years, a grand jury investigation found. Similar investigations are opening up in #Georgia, #Louisiana, #Michigan, #Mississippi, #NewJersey, #NewMexico, #NewYork, #Guam, and #WashingtonDC.

The US Department of Justice is also looking into the Pennsylvania cases, running its own investigation out of Philadelphia. Some 1,450 calls have flooded a hotline recently set up for victims not uncovered during the preceding two-year investigation.

Shapiro believes the investigation has just hit on the tip of a very large iceberg. “I think we’re probably in the third or fourth inning, meaning that we still have a good ways to go and a lot more horrors to unearth,” he said.

The grand jury’s report was unflinching in its condemnation, claiming church leaders “often dissuaded victims from reporting abuse to police, pressured law enforcement to terminate or avoid an investigation or conducted their own deficient, biased investigation without reporting crimes against children to the proper authorities.” Shapiro emphasized that the statute of limitations figured prominently in the church’s foot-dragging and stonewalling. “Almost every instance of child abuse found was too old to be prosecuted… None of those who enabled the cover-up could be charged under our laws.” “Every opportunity they had to do the right thing, they did the opposite,” he said. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#PedoGate #PizzaGate #SpiritCooking #StopHumanTrafficking #SatanicRitualAbuse #CardinalGeorgePell Investigations into #childsexabuse by #catholicpriests are spreading across the entire #unitedstates.
