Street Justice

"Cardinal Roger Mahoney, the leader of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, told fellow priests that he was assaulted last summer by a man who yelled angry statements about the sexual abuse of children by Roman Catholic priests. ... No report about the assault was filed with the Los Angeles Police Department", Houston Chronicle, 5 December.

If Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley (SC), did his job and indicted Mahoney on say, 500 counts of accessory after the fact to sexual battery on a child, this might not have happened. As things are, SC furthered the public's contempt for the law.
