When will a DA finally have the guts to RICO the Catholic Church?

    They might have a problem of Statute of limitations. Also the burden of proof for a criminal case is a hell of a lot higher than a civil case (or what the media has to report as evidence by faux news)

    Their may be a lot of evidence but not enough for a solid convections. Yes we know they are guilty but proving in court is the hard part.

    I don't think evidence would be an issue as we've seen with the Saville enquiry over here - you just need to open the floodgates and the evidence overwhelms you. Problem with the DA's office is it's a political position as much as a legal one. Wouldn't be safe to take on such a large institution as the court result could be 5/6+ years down the line, by which time the DA has already lost his job, possibly over the back of it.

    Can this not be done on a Federal level?
