An investigation commissioned by the Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School found no evidence of “racist or offensive statements” by Covington Catholic students during their encounter with Native American activists at the Lincoln Memorial in January.
Investigators were not able to interview either Native American elder Nathan Phillips or Nicholas Sandmann, the student at the center of the incident, in person. The investigation relied on Sandmann’s written account, third-party witness interviews, and statements from other students and chaperones.
The investigation was performed by Greater Cincinnati Investigation Inc, a private detective agency which appears to investigate mostly workplace insurance and is located in Taylor Mills, KY 7 miles from the High School.
GCI report that they found no evidence that the students responded in an offensive manner to the black Hebrew Israelites or that they chanted “build the wall.” After asking chaperones, they performed a school cheer, according to the report, to drown out the black Hebrew Israelites.
They also reported that most boys bought the red hats bearing President Trump’s MAGA slogan in Washington on the day of the March for Life, an annual antiabortion rally that they attended. In previous years, some students bought “Hope” hats in support of President Obama, the report says.
The report does not provide any recommendations for future changes, such as banning political attire or changes to chaperone protocol. Many people were critical that the adults in charge of the students did not intervene more forcefully to avoid or end the interactions.
The report also does not address underlying issues of diversity at the school that were raised by local NAACP leader Jerome Bowles and others.
Perhaps The National Congress of American Indians should open an investigation.
Brian Brown the president of the National Organization for Marriage is demanding a full federal investigation of the Human Rights Campaign claiming that they “stole” the race baiting hate group’s 2008 tax return in which the names and addresses of donors which are normally redacted from publicly released tax documents were still intact.
“Last week the publication posted a copy of NOM’s federal tax return for 2008 (Form 990—Schedule B) listing its major donors, which is a confidential document filed only with the IRS. The tax return listed the names and addresses of dozens of NOM’s major donors in 2008. All of this information is submitted to the IRS on a confidential basis and is not available for lawful public disclosure.
It appears that someone with either the IRS or the HRC may have committed a federal crime by illegally obtaining and then releasing a confidential tax return of the National Organization for Marriage,” said Brian Brown, NOM’s president. “It’s clear that the tax return was stolen, either from NOM or from the government. The Huffington Post article says that HRC claimed they received the document from a ‘whistleblower.’ But the term ‘whistleblower’ is completely inapt. We’re talking about a criminal who has stolen confidential tax return information. We demand to know who this criminal is, whether they work for the HRC or the IRS, and how they obtained confidential tax information filed only with the US government.”
Actually I wouldn’t put it past Brown and NOM as being the one to release the tax documents in n attempt to take the heat off of NOM about the Race Baiting documents.
Deflection after the fact by using the “victim card” is NOM’s modus operandi after all.
Investigative reporters from ABC15 – TV in Phoenix, AZ have uncovered that Arizona Sheriff Paul Babue who is currently under investigation for abusing his power and threatening his Mexican ex-lover with deportation was in the late 90’s was involved with the running of The DeSisto School, a Massachusetts boarding school with a history of physical and sexual abuse, such as forcing students to wear sheets, sit facing walls for hours, undergo strip searches and take group showers and also had a sexual relationship with the male student.
The student who was 17 at the time and of legal age in Massachusetts. Babue at that time would have been in his early 30’s.
Several students we spoke with say they also knew a secret about Babeu. It was a secret that Babeau’s older sister said she discovered one day after visiting his home. Lucy Babeu told the ABC15 Investigators she confronted her brother after finding a student from DeSisto school living with Babeu.
“I said what is this student from Desisto doing here? He says, ‘Lucy, he’s my boyfriend. I love him’.”
Lucy Babeu told us her brother was having a relationship with the male student.
“I said Paul get a hold of yourself here,” said Lucy. “You were his teacher! You were his Executive Director! You can’t do this.”
ABC15 is not identifying the former student. He has not responded to our interview requests. At the time, he was 17 which is the legal age of consent in Massachusetts.
“He was of age. He would be what we considered a high school senior,” said Nielsen
Babeu left the school in 2001. In 2004 the Massachusetts Office of Child Care Services ordered DeSisto administrators to suspend their admissions process. In a letter, commonwealth officials charged the school had “an environment that endangers the life, health, and safety of children enrolled.”
