SNAP applauds filing of civil suits against Bernie Fine
We’re grateful any time a child sex abuse victim finds the courage to take action against a child predator. We wish these brave men well in their effort to safeguard kids from a serial child molester.
Fine no doubt has shrewd, expensive defense lawyers. They’ll exploit every technicality and legal maneuver possible to help this dangerous man evade responsibility for his heinous crimes. So it’s crucial that others with knowledge or suspicions of Fine’s crimes continue to come forward, call police, protect others and start healing
We hope each of the three civil suits against Fine will help expose the wrongdoing of others in Syracuse who knew of or suspected Fine’s crimes but ignored or concealed them. That’s an enormous benefit of civil litigation – it can help uncover evidence of complicity by a predator’s colleagues and supervisors, and thus deter others from keeping secret about possible child sex crimes in the future.
