Further to my previous comment I have never seen the likes of what I saw in that Ottawa courtroom this afternoon in all my life. The dirty looks at “Robert” and his family. The cheering and clapping.
Now there’s more…
Never on Sylvia’s Site have I seen such disrespectful, rude, vile comments directed at a complainant in defence of a priest.
The rumour mill has been well oiled. So many comments are beyond disgusting – half-truths and gossip mongering geared specifically to further humiliate and maim those who are already hurting. Those of you who have been party to the onslaught directed at this unfortunate family do yourself, the Church and Father Amesse no favour.
This is disgraceful.
There will be no more slandering Robert and his family on this site. It’s over. You’ve had free reign, but, you just don’t want to stop. For whatever reason, an acquittal isn’t enough.
By the way, I have said many a time in the past that I believe that anyone who falsely accuses another of sexual abuse should be charged. It is a despicable crime. There are charges which can be laid, such as, I believe, mischief and perjury. If Father Amesse believes that he has been falsely accused, he should go to police.
That said, those who wish to conduct a respectful exchange of opinion are free to do so.
Enough for now,
