Kansas City Catholic Bishop Indicted on Child Endangerment Charge

A Kansas City Catholic Bishop has been indicted on a child endangerment charge for failing to report that a child may have been sexually abused by a priest when he had reasonable cause to believe that such abuse took place. Per the article:


That reasonable cause included the discovery of hundreds of photographs on the priest's laptop, "including a child's naked vagina, upskirt images and images focused on the crotch area and violations of restrictions that were placed on Father Ratigan." 


Surprisingly the charge is only a misdemeanor. However, also per the article:


"The fact that this is a misdemeanor complaint should not diminish the significance of this charge," Peters-Baker said. "This is a significant charge. To my knowledge, a charge like this has not been leveled before."

I am sure there are many bishops that are guilty of that crime.
I totally agree.
What a sleaze.  How many priests have to be proven to be child abusers and sexual criminals for the catholic flocks to realize that their leaders are complete fakes?
