In case you haven't heard, back in 2006 Trinity Broadcasting Network founders Paul and Jan Crouch and network attorney John Casoria learned that the Crouches' then-13-year-old granddaughter, Carra, was the victim of a horrific incident of child abuse.  However, they merely fired the creep responsible and told him that as long as he didn't try to file unemployment, workers' comp or an EEOC claim, they wouldn't report it to the police.  The problem?  The Crouches and Casoria are ordained ministers, and were thus required by California law to report it.

Under the Uniform Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act, if a mandated reporter fails to report an allegation of child abuse, he's guilty of only a misdemeanor.  But there are certain crimes which are so outrageous that they simply have to be investigated.  Moreover, according to both OC Weekly and the Orange County Register, Carra was not allowed to talk to the police or seek counseling.  If that isn't conspiracy, what is?

The one person who can get some answers out of this is Orange County's DA, Tony Rackauckas.  Please, sign this petition asking him to mount a criminal investigation into this outrage.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
