Editor Mike Myer asks: “If Bransfield did all these things for so long, how did he get away with it?”
Yes, it’s a clueless question from the editor of a newspaper that brags daily on its masthead that it has “stood guard for 166 years against predatory interests which would violate civil rights.”
Here’s my answer to Myer’s question: because those who had the power and the microphone (the Catholic Church, local media, and law enforcement) chose not to investigate.
Myer rightly questions the diocese but that is as far as he goes. I’m sure he, like anyone in the area who does not live under a rock, has heard rumors about some . . .
