Lucia Interesting turn in the Father F molestation saga

The police were told and did nothing.

NSW police were told that a Catholic priest now at the centre of a child sex abuse scandal was abusing boys almost 30 years ago, but took no action against him.

In 1983, the father of an 11-year-old altar boy told officers in the town of Moree that his son had been touched inappropriately by the priest, known as Father F for legal reasons.

The boy's father, who asked not to be named, said he raised the allegation with the late Monsignor Frank Ryan, a church official in the diocese of Armidale on three occasions, but nothing was done. "So I spoke to the police and they said they were aware of (Father F's) activities and something would come out of it," the father said.

"But nothing happened."

Ok then, nothing to see here, let's move on to blaming the priests who were told something of the Father F's crimes against children 9 years later ...

Notice how there is no call to find out who the officers were, and bring them to justice for dereliction of duty.

Hypocrites, all.
