some brothers of st john got themselves into situations of big stream gravity the brothers in question were about to be hauled in front of the courts at a risk of dirtying the damage of our church i used all my weight to make sure this did not happen. what have these french priest done to incur the wrath of an archbishop. in cameroon a mostly catholic country the community of st john is an institution. the brothers run one of the biggest high schools in yon big the capital. but invert to uk and east of the country the brothers of state john have left town. until two thousand and fourteen they oversaw this cathedral the biggest in the region. and. we go to see the archbishop the one who asked the same john priest to leave.

not always did. she need a yes idiot a yeah i did see a lot out of. it was are going to want to go back on this cruise missile. if they want to go to the river but i was at let's see device i said. yes thanks for your precious comments are great but they weren't exactly helpful. at the cathedral but two i will discover the reasons why the st john brothers hurriedly left town another alleged case of pedophilia. the sexual abuse of a number of boys. for three days we try to find these presumed victims. in this city where the catholic church is omnipresent it's hard to broach the subject. finally we find one of the kids who supposedly
abused by the priest. today he's fifteen. percent yes. did she. see him but. we show him one of the community's internal documents that we managed to procure the mug shots of all the st john brothers across the globe five hundred eight of. this priest had indeed been posted importune. you have these issues coming for that is into your car to some. simplistically so you did more in managing the
secrecy and see it again this is getting more into india than your school is a c.p.a. really leases it up by its base that is down to the yes name popped in the internet of a good. well after a few weeks the boy finally admitted everything to his parents they immediately went together to the bar to a law courts to file a complaint. but here nobody touches the church. just so. she sees some or. even a pipe. pretty simple. up on the to the point puno of the dung is usually more use surely play she proceeded to pull a knife but of course at the actual bank the twenty was actually it looked as able

was the reason the put us. boys in the right so yeah that's probably. where students are in the story yeah fulfill it. if there is. one i'll show seemed wrong. but old roles just don't hold. any old belief yet to shape our disdain to come get educated and in games from an equal betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer it be in the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the
right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict is found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people was terrifying there was just no really hasn't and that we're even many of the times families want the death penalty to be a mole and the reason we have to get kelly here is because that's what murder victim's families what that's going to give them peace it's going to give them justice and we come in saying. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way. it's going. to go to life. each.
