‘The People That Matter:’ Updates on Victims, Vigils

Thousands of Facebook users have been sharing this passionate post from the ‘Salty Dad’ fan page (must be signed in to Facebook to see), expressing a desire to learn more about the Boston Marathon victims, and less about the suspects.

“It is time that we, as a nation, demand that the press, the politicians, the pundits, and the 24 hour ‘news’ channels news start focusing on the people that matter, and ignore the ones that don’t,” the original poster wrote, referencing the media attention given to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.  

We at Patch want to do our part keeping the victims’ memories alive. We’ll update this article as often as possible, with articles about and for the victims that have been published in Patch and other media outlets. We’ll also include stories about heroism, about helpers, about fundraisers and vigils. If you are looking for other coverage, too, you may refer to this page that compiles the latest about the investigation. read more

Boston Sexual Abuse Attorney: ‘The New Pope Will Just Toe the Company Line’

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio

A Boston attorney who has helped hundreds of Catholic sexual abuse victims obtain settlements believes the new pope will continue to ignore sexual abuse issues.

“Pope Benedict and the current pope will just toe the company line. And he’s going to continue to sweep sexual abuse issues under the rug and maintain the secrecy, which has allowed sexual predators to thrive,” said Mitchell Garabedian, who heads a Boston law firm specializing in helping victims of sexual abuse. “I think sources from outside will continue to force the church to reveal the ugliness of child abuse within the church.”

Garabedian also offered his recommendations for the new pope – Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina.

“For an institution such as the Catholic church to hold themselves as the most moral organization in the world – they have to act morally. The pope is the leader of that institution. He has to clear house. He has to get rid of bishops who have allowed children to be molested. He has to report them to the police and support victims who have been sexually molested. The pope has to institute a policy of transparency so that victims are allowed to heal, and other victims are empowered – and the world is made a safer place for children.” read more
