L.A. DA: still investigating priest abuse scandal, criminal prosecutions not ruled out

The Los Angeles diocese of the Catholic Church recently announced they were settling all outstanding civil suits in regards to the priest abuse scandal for $600 million.

Now, L.A. County District Attorney Steve Cooley has released a statement [1]:
"Today's massive civil settlement highlights the institutional moral failure of the archdiocese to supervise predatory priests who operated for years under its jurisdiction.

...We are aware there could be records that may become available to us as a result of today's settlement. If these documents reveal evidence of criminal activity on behalf of individual priests or anyone else, we will pursue them.

"The book is not closed on our investigation."
I don't know the extent to which he's under the sway of the local powers that be that have heretofore protected Cardinal Roger Mahoney, including mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Los Angeles Times, so whether he really means that or not isn't known.

I guess $600 million doesn't buy quite enough these days.

They should be held accountable and their sleazy child abusing as**s should go to jail with their own kind because in my mind Jesus does not forgive hurting the most innocent of our society. May they all burn in hell.
