Catholic Bishops can still be prosecuted on a federal level

Mainstream news again reports that a bishop will not be prosecuted due to the statute of limitations in one particular state. 

When will some reporter somewhere realize that in every archdiocese in the country the same pattern of cover-up, and aiding and abetting of pedophile priests took place, so the crimes of the bishops happened across state lines, on a national level. 

The crimes of the bishops are Federal Crimes. 

So instead of we as a nation just throwing up our hands and saying the statutes of limitations are past on state and county levels, why are there no FEDERAL INDICTMENTS of bishops all across the country, since they carried out their crimes in exactly the same manner in every archdiocese across the country? 

This was criminal conspiracy on a national level.  No county DA is ready to take on the Catholic Church, but the Federal Justice Department could.

Los Angeles Times-Jan 22, 2013
Over the last decade, there have been numerous calls to prosecute Cardinal Roger M. Mahony and his top aides for their mishandling of clergy ...

Jay Nelson of New Mexico sent me this comment Thur afternoon via email: 

It's a lovely dream. If we could find a real Elliot Ness federal 
prosecutor to go after this criminal enterprise, he or she would 
have plenty of dots to connect.

Here are a few that just occurred to me:
Baloney Mahony took over LA in 1985 -- the same time frame as:

1) The Manual was put before the bishops, but they declined 
saying they already had a policy in place. Nonetheless, it 
informed them of how to dispose of files without suspicion. 
(Thanks, Fr. Doyle! Good job!)

2) The Servants of the Paraclete are advised by the bishops to do 
just that.

3) Mahony writes the Paracletes in 1987 advising them not to 
return a predator who could face criminal charges.

Gee, sounds like a conspiracy to avoid justice to me!

ANOTHER comment came in by email from Gerald Slevin:  

Hello Kay: Thanks for your call  on your website for a Federal investigation of the US bishops' abuse cover-up. You may find of interest my related statement of today, "How Much Longer  Can the Vatican Avoid Priest Sex Abuse?", accessible at 

Please consider posting my statement or a portion of it or link to it on your site. Thanks so much for this and for all you do.

Best, Jerry
