Subject: RE: BS: And yet more abusing priests (Ireland)
why didn't victims report the crimes to police themselves? If I were victim of a crime, that's the first place I'd go.

I made the mistake of trying to get help from the Gardai when I got robbed in Dublin.

If they couldn't be arsed trying to deal with a gang of teenage thugs after a complaint from an articulate middle-aged academic, why on earth would you expect them to take on a rapist priest when the complainant is a probably-incoherent working-class kid?
