MD- Catholic teacher accused; SNAP responds
Our hearts ache for parents at this school who must be upset about the child sex allegations and the vague way school officials are dealing with them. Parents and the public need and deserve straight answers about possible child sex crimes. It’s disturbing to see Catholic officials leaving families in the dark about such serious matters.
We hope that every person who may have seen or suspected or suffered any misdeeds by this teacher will call police immediately. We also hope that Baltimore’s Catholic archbishop will use his vast resources to aggressively seek out any victims, witnesses and whistleblowers who may have information or suspicions about this teacher, so he might be effectively prosecuted and kept away from kids.
50 State AG Call for Grand Jury
Any investigation must be:
- independent of and separate from the church
- must have subpoena powers and ability to compel testimony under oath
Anything short of these criteria is a sham and whitewash.
In addition, write letters to the editor, make phone calls to politicians as they can apply pressure to keep them responsive to our demand. We need to make efforts to ensure that they follow up on what the state is doing to investigate these crimes.
The Attorneys General of forty states have inquired about the grand jury process in Pennsylvania. Let's get statewide investigations going in fifty states.
