Jim i have a tremndous amount of respect for you after reading what you wrote here, you said a lot, but i have a question. is this point you made really true? that if someone's handling a former abuser in a civil suit they are obstructing justice?
in your opinion? or the laws? you said:
Individuals who have a civil suits pending may not like this. I've told those of you who have such a suit in progress that I would disagree if you withheld information from this investigation in order to make your suits successful. Withholding information is an obstruction of justice as far as I'm concerned.
Civil suits are a form of accountability in money awards only. It is only in a criminal suit that the perpetrators will be brought to be made accountable for their crimes against children and be put behind bars where they are no longer a threat to the rest of the community.
