MO- Judge limits evidence in Catholic child sex case
Once again, the criminal who commits child sex crimes will likely be punished and the criminal who conceals child sex crimes gets a break.
We’re disappointed that evidence about the complicity of top Kansas City Catholic officials in the crimes of Fr. Shawn Ratigan will not be shared in open court. At the same time, however, we’re glad that one count against the diocese remains intact.
This ruling should give pause to those who know about corruption in the Kansas City diocese. It’s a reminder that unless every single person who sees, suspects or suffers clergy sex crimes or cover ups must act. None of us should let our fear or complacency cause inaction. All of us have a duty to safeguard kids, and often the best place to start is by sharing what we know and suspect with law enforcement.
