CA- Jury finds Lynch not guilty of assaulting priest

Violence is always wrong. Still, we are grateful for this verdict. The odds that Lynch would ever reoffend are infinitely small. 

We hope this case prods lawmakers to reform predator friendly laws that prevent child sex abuse victims from exposing predators in civil and criminal court.

    “Violence is always wrong” – CORRECT!
    “…grateful for this verdict” – WRONG!!!
    Lynch is guilty, and should have been found guilty…and then maybe a suspended sentence. Lynch may not “reoffend” but the jury has established a bad precedence for all other victims still trying to heal. I still support SNAP’s mission for justice, healing and protection…a critical service to humanity. This verdict, however, is an injustice and could backfire on SNAP’s “justice” objective.
