Probe of church abuse scandal hits one year mark

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

August 28, 2019

Victims write alleged predators names on sidewalk
They blast MO attorney general for a “half-hearted effort”
Meanwhile, KC KS suspended cleric’s criminal trial is 9/9
Group wants archbishop to “rein in overzealous Catholics”
SNAP: “Once hard-liners, GOP leaders now ‘soft on crime’
It urges Republicans to ‘lean on’ three statewide officeholders
And it gives AG ‘abuse experts list’ that his staff should interview
And victims praise law enforcement officials in KS & neighboring states

Using chalk, clergy sex abuse victims will write two-three dozen names of credibly accused predator KC MO priests on the sidewalk outside the Missouri attorney general’s office and
—blast him for what they call a “half-hearted and slow-paced” look into Catholic sex crimes and cover ups (which was launched one year ago),
—hand-deliver a list of ‘abuse experts’ in Missouri and elsewhere who could help the probe and should be questioned by law enforcement, and
—urge the AG to push KC MO’s bishop to post child molesting clerics on his website (as every other Missouri bishop has done already).

And holding signs and childhood photos, they will
— discuss the impending criminal trial of a local priest set for next month, and
— urge KC Catholic officials to insist that parishioners not rally around the accused cleric in public and the courtroom

On the sidewalk outside the AG’s office, 615 E. 13th Street, (corner of Holmes) in Kansas City, MO (816-889-5000)
