LIARS & HYPOCRITES!
This LNP headline is a lie. Whispering Hope is not a physical rehabilitation center! Once again, DA Stedman and Judge Ashworth have given blatant preferential treatment to a man because he is Amish.
And I don’t care if he’s 74-years-old. He has 24 felony counts of child sexual abuse including against his own daughters.
LNP has written editorial after editorial about child sexual abuse since the grand jury report on priests in Pennsylvania was released. In fact, I googled “child sexual abuse editorial LancasterOnline” and the first page of Google results are below.
You are disgusting liars and hypocrites, LNP! Shame on you for not calling out Stedman and Ashworth and protecting children!
**** I received the below photo of Whispering Hope (thank you). Can anyone confirm this?
*** LNP reporter Lindsey Blest, could you ask Judge Ashworth the below questions that came in as a comment this morning? Could you investigate, reporter Blest and LNP?
This guy has 24 felonies. Get real !! Why was he sent to Whispering Hope if he has health issues ? The prison has more staff medically qualified than Whispering hope. WH operates on a volunteer staff.
Also – WH accepts both men and women and as young as 16. Children are frequently at WH to visit other patients. This IS NOT A SAFE PLACE.
THERE NEEDS TO BE AN OUTCRY — THIS PERV BELONGS IN JAIL
** Lancaster County Prison is fully handicapped accessible and there are prisoners in wheelchairs in the prison all the time.
* The story about David Smucker just went online (click here).
“Sending somebody of the Amish faith to a facility focused on the Amish faith as a holding pattern seems to make sense,” Ashworth [Judge David Ashworth] said.
From the above article in today’s print edition but not currently online. Click here for the Saturday story on this site about David Smucker, charged with 24 felony counts of child sexual abuse, being sent to the Whispering Hope facility.
What about Muslims, Judge? What about members of the Jewish faith, Judge? Why can’t the county prison meet his medical needs? Should the Amish get this very special treatment or is this an outrage?
BRING THE KID BACK!
This comment in this morning under the post below:
