From time to time, you will find some posts here that concern problems that are not directly related to police misconduct. This report concerns a young man who was falsely accused of rape. On the advice of counsel, the young man pled guilty and went to prison. Luckily for him, he was able to expose his accuser’s lie on videotape.
There are many problems with plea bargaining — one is that it extorts guilty pleas from the innocent. Another, not at issue in the above case, is that police misconduct escapes scrutiny because it does not come to light since there is no trial. More here.
Pedophile Catholic Priest removed from church over sex abuse now works at TSA
Seriously, you can’t make this kind of stuff up.
CBS News is reporting that Thomas Harkins, a defrocked priest who was removed from the ministry for sexual abuse against children is now working for the TSA and they even got video from an I-Team member:
Not only does he work there but he actual has a manager title, supposedly “Transportation Security Manager, Baggage,” though when the video was taken he was seen in the main D & E terminals at Philadelphia International Airport and it is being reported he also works in passenger screening.
As Alex Jones has asked on numerous occasions, who else but sex offenders and people on crazy power trips would want to work at the TSA? I know I wouldn’t want a job like that. I’d rather be homeless and destitute then have a job where I have to subject my fellow Americans to dehumanizing violations that have become the status quo of the Transportation Security Administrations procedures.
One thing I noticed when researching Thomas Harkins is that there is almost no online press regarding this pedophile’s original offense or his defrocking. To me it looks like he actually spent some effort on search engine reputation management, a procedure where you actively suppress negative information that shows up for your name in Google.
Yet we in the USA will never leave the U.N. Even over things like this.
