School staff ignored child sex abuse report; SNAP responds

We are stunned by the apparent callousness of these school staffers, and we are grateful to law enforcement officials for pursuing these charges. We hope prosecutors push hard for the maximum penalties for each of the defendants. If this teacher and these administrators are found guilty, we hope that education authorities consider penalizing the school itself for this egregious wrongdoing.


Convicted predator priest to be deported; SNAP responds

We are both grateful and worried about Fr. Superiaso being deported to the Philippines. We are thankful he won’t be able to hurt kids here anymore, but we fear that kids in his home country will be vulnerable to his attacks.
