It looks as if the LA Archdiocese (in their rush to dump more than 12,000 pages of files after 5 years of legal haggling) has published the contact info for many of their accused clerics.
Did they mean to do this?
Redactions have been an issue for the Archdiocese, who is now getting pounded for redacting the names of low-level priests who covered up abuse. They also “FORGOT” to redact the names of a number of victims. I won’t tell you where those are, out of respect for those victims.
But the one thing they didn’t redact? The contact addresses and phone numbers of many of the perpetrator priests as of 2012. Here is Michael Nocita’s FORMER home address, with work and home phone (now disconnected)**UPDATE He apparently does not live here anymore, and the Archdiocese is responsible for publicizing the address***. Want to call Kevin Barmasse? This number is still active.
The problem? How many innocent people are going to be barraged with calls and “drive-bys” because had the unfortunate luck of moving into the former home of an accused cleric or getting a perp priest’s old phone number?
