What I don’t understand is why the parents went to a Church official first. Why didn’t they call the cops immediately?
What I don't understand is why the Lds bishop wasn't more "pushy" toward the parents -- to not wait a year before calling the authorities? And, if need be, once the sexual abuse became obvious, to call in the authorities himself to prevent further crimes.
And some point, he needed to move beyond the reputation of the church & beyond even the perps themselves and concentrate simply on being a neighbor to that abuse victim!
