Something new.

Just caught this press release from Canada:

TORONTO – A U.S. fugitive who police say uses his position as a ministerial servant of the Jehovah Witness to get close to children is being sought for allegedly molesting four youngsters in California.

Frederick Cecil McLean, 61, is among the U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted fugitives and is believed to be hiding in the GTA, officers of Toronto Police’s Fugitive Squad said on Wednesday.

McLean’s plight has been aired twice on America’s Most Wanted TV show without leading to his arrest.

He was charged in California with multiple counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under 14. An arrest warrant was issued for him in Jan. 2005 when police believe he fled to Canada.

The Marshals said McLean is accused of sexually assaulting four separate U.S. victims, who were children under 14.

“One of the victims claims that McLean molested her over 100 times between 1991 and 1996,” U.S. police allege. “McLean molested his first victim at 28-years-old in San Felipe, Mexico.”

The Marshals allege McLean, who has a successful business restoring cars, used his position in the Jehovah Witness to gain access to his victims.

Police said McLean fled the U.S. after being confronted by his family. He said then he was planning for his escape his whole life.

Police said as their probe widened, McLean sold his property including houses and a lucrative race car business and split the profits with his wife, whom he divorced.

The U.S. Marshals estimate he fled to Canada with about $400,000 in cash to help him hide.

Police said McLean has been in touch with his family during the years on the run and was self-employed as a dealer and restorer of vintage racecars, who liked to go primitive camping in the desert.

“McLean has been described as a loner with no real friends,” the Marshals said. “He is considered armed and dangerous.”

Anyone who has information on the fugitive is asked to call police at 4516-808-5930 or CrimeStoppers at 416-222-TIPS

So what do you think? Have the cops found something new?

The thought of this horrible disgusting human in jail brings peace to my soul.

Heads up Canada, you might have a monster hiding among you.

Frustrated.

Every time I see something like this, I get hit with such a rush of emotions. First, my blood boils. That slowly gets replaced with an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. We are taught as kids that the church is a safe place. How can we go on if it turns out that the place we thought safest turns out to be harboring the greatest demons? Why does society seem so afraid to tackle this head on?

There are a lot of people out there doing good work, @stopitnow and http://www.silentlambs.org/.

Everyone out there

    can

do something. Take a stand. Fight back. Support each other. Stop the monsters.

Please…….STOP THE MONSTERS.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Jurors in a landmark church sex-abuse trial in Philadelphia are hearing about a priest who was convicted of child pornography charges but wasn’t defrocked until years later.

Prosecutors presented a chronology of the Rev. Edward DePaoli on Tuesday as they continue building their case against a high-ranking official in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. DePaoli was convicted in 1986 but served as a priest until 2002. He was defrocked in 2005.

DePaoli isn’t a defendant in the trial but prosecutors are using testimony about him and others in their case against Monsignor William Lynn. Lynn is the first Roman Catholic official in the U.S. charged with endangering children for allegedly transferring priests suspected of molestation.

He is on trial with the Rev. James Brennan, who is charged with the attempted rape of a 14-year-old boy. Both have pleaded not guilty.
