|Pittsburgh: Where Wuerl severely abused his position.|
where within she claimed to have interviewed one of Diane Thompson's
two sons. It would sound like a trustworthy article consisting of true alle-
gations. However, the article is filled with many contradictions of Diane
Thompson's past accusations, and it contained new allegations which were
fact-checked and proven false. The allegations of criminal procedure do
NOT correlate with the actual Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure.
in the November 2016 Engel article, it was alleged by Diane Thompson that
she had to pay a $45 admission fee, in order for her eldest son, Frank, to go
to the Michigan summer camp that was held on the seminary grounds of the
Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions. She made herself out to be the har-
rowed and heavily burdened martyr who had to sacrifice greatly, to pay the
$45 admittance fee.
NEWSFLASH: I am in contact with a family who has two sons who were
in Cipolla's company very often. One of the two gentlemen attended the
exact same Michigan seminary summer camp as did Diane Thompson's
eldest son, though in a different year. This particular youth traveled to
Michigan with the Tim Bendig who claimed to have been molested by Ci-
polla for consecutive years. According to that gentlemen and his mom,
they did NOT have to pay any $45 fee. Diane Thompson lied yet again.
Furthermore, the gentleman said that NOTHING suspicious between
Cipolla and Bendig was ever observed by him. However, he did say,
"Tim was weird. Really weird."
Incidentally, it was easy to tell that the heavily damning Engel article of Nov-
ember 2016 was extremely negligent in fact-checking and proof-reading, be-
cause, in the article, mention is made of "Jim Bendig" and NOT Tim Bendig.
Yet, she said that she interviewed Frank, one of Diane Thompson's sons, mak-
ing the article sound like the end-all of all Cipolla articles.
This is my question: Why would Frank never telephone me and talk? My
phone number has been well posted in a number of places and I kept asking
to be put into contact with Tucker and Frank. What actually was spoken be-
tween the two people.
Plus: Why did not Engel post a transcript of the interview?
As an example of how the Engel article contradicts the allegations of Diane
Thompson in the October 13, 1995 Pittsburgh Post Gazette article that at-
tacks Cipolla's character to the depths:
IN the October 1995 Pittsburgh Post Gazette article, Thompson stated that
she had TWO daughters in a "first marriage" and TWO sons in a "second
marriage." IN the Nov 2016 Engel article, Thompson claimed to have three
sons and one daughter, and that Tucker Thompson and Frank Labieaux had
different dads. According to her in 1995, Frank and tucker had the same
More Fact-checked lies:
Engel stated that Cipolla was taken to Police Station #9, in the North Side
of Pittsburgh, thereby being officially arrested and then released by the
police on his own cognizance, where he was to wait for his arraignment.
Firstly, a person is only released on his own cognizance by a judge at the
person's arraignment. The arraignment is simply the bail hearing where
it's surmised if the defendant is 1} a flight risk, 2} a danger, 3} no physical
threat, etc. When you are officially arrested, you are held overnight, and
then sent to your arraignment, pronto. You don't go home and wait for
arraignment, BECAUSE the arraignment is the official assessment that
sees if you are going to go home after you are formerly charged with a
crime, in the first place.
Secondly, there are only SIX police zones in Pittsburgh. The North Side
of Pittsburgh is Zone #1 ... not #9.
Now, in Pittsburgh Police history, Police Station #9 was/is located on Mount
Washington, in the South Side of Pittsburgh, and NOT on the North Side of
Pittsburgh, as Randy Engel claimed.
PLUS, PLUS, PLUS: Engel stated that there was one piece of evidence that
remained in the Diane Thompson case. It was the Offense/Incidence Report,
signed by a couple detectives. Uhhhhm, ladies and gentlemen, that is NOT
evidence. That is the PRIVATE CRIMINAL COMPLAINT FORM as was
used in the 1970s.
It was NOT the police officer's or detective's affidavit. Proof consists in the
fact that, at the bottom of the form, there is a block subheaded with the words,
"approved by," followed by the words, "badge no." This means that however
signed it interviewed the person who made the private complaint and that the
complainant described behavior that is recognized as criminal in the state of
Pennsylvania. Keep in mind that, some wrongs are regarded as "tort offenses"
and belong in civil court. Plus, other accusations are petty. All in all, the pri-
vate crminal complaint filing has a screening feature to it. I know this to be
true, because I went through the process and couple of times.
Once again, the thing which Randy Engel falsely called evidence was nothing
more than the private criminal complaint form. In fact, it contains blocks
were the private citizen writes in the witnesses to the wrongs done.
Cipolla was NEVER arrested or charged. He was merely served a Summary
Notice signed by Diane Thompson which instructed him to show up in City
Court for a MOTIONS HEARING ... aka "Probable Cause Hearing" as part
of a private citizen's private criminal complaint, where Thompson was requir-
ed to show due cause as to why the presiding judge was to "Issue Process"
and have Cipolla officially indicted and then arraigned. Diane Thompson
withdrew her private criminal complaint shortly before the Motions Hearing.
Anthony Cipolla was NEVER in handcuffs.
The falsehoods and contradictions go on and on and on and on, in the November
2016 Engel article. It severely contradicted the 1995 article that the Pittsburgh
Post Gazette published on the subject. It was the article where Diane Thompson
was quoted as having alleged overly-theatrical things, while keeping Thompson's
The November 2016 article attributed to Randy Engel was at variance, in pertinent
part, with Diane Thompson's own 2015 & 2016 web log posts, as well. It was also
different, in specific part, from the narration that Thompson gave to a certain per-
son who asked to be kept in anonymity.
The article was also at variance, in part, with the contents of the harassing, rude, and
derisive emails that Thompson sent to me in 2015. I was compelled to block her in
short order, being that she was so podunk-trash-crass and intrusive. The woman has
no temperance, to say the least.
Now, every time Thompson speaks to someone new, she tells a new and amended
story about Cipolla and her family. Cipolla, on the other hand, told the same story,
inserting the same names, over and over. It had gotten to the point where Cipolla
would tell me the same story, and I would start reciting it word-for-word. He re-
sponded once by saying, "I'm trying to talk here," upon which I realized that he
kept telling me the same set of stories for the sake of emotional release.
Thompson said to a Pittsburgh Post Gazette journalist in 1995 that then-Bishop
Vincent Leonard instilled a sense of guilt in Diane Thompson for filing what
the Post Gazette in 1978 stated was a Summary Notice and what the 1995 Post
Gazette stated was the "filing of criminal charges." Thompson said that Vincent
Leonard said that the Church had just lost two popes and her suffering greatly.
Well, the second pope to die in 1978 wasn't even elected pope yet. This proved
Diane Thompson to be a liar.
Well, in the 2016 Randy Engel article, it is alleged that Bishop Leonard only
pointed out the one death of Paul VI. Thus, Thompson changed her story yet
In addition, it was proven that the Vatican Case against Cipolla only dealt
with his diagnosis of Depression & Suicidal Tendencies, given by a doctor
of St. Luke's in Maryland. It was a Psychic Defect case and did NOT cover
Plus, Ann Rodgers of the Post Gazette stated that Wuerl went to Rome with
a Police Arrest Report in his brief case. In fact, Diane Thompson said that
Attorney Douglas Yauger showed up at her Florida home within 24 hours
of having been contacted by her to take the report. Well, no such thing
exists and Cipolla was not arrested, as his 2014 security clearance shows.
Then, in the 2016 Engel article, it was stated that Thompson was given a
Department of Police Offense/Incidence Report. Oh finally. Such a thing
IS the private criminal complaint and that one does contain the badge num-
ber of the approving officer who received it. It also contains the names
and addresses of witnesses. This is what I was talking about, all along.
Such a thing is NOT an indictment. It is NOT a police arrest report.
Engel then wrote that the detectives drove to the home of Diane Thompson
and gave her a copy of it, saying that she might need it one day. That is
possible. Why did the Post Gazette and Diane Thompson go for decades
never mentioning the existence of this thing. This is filed at a magistrate's
office. I filed such a thing.
In my personal experience, shortly after filing it, two detectives interview
you. Now, police officers without the need of the civilian complainant
can file on the accused.
In addition, Engel wrote that the DA, in coaxing Diane Thompson to drop
charges which were NOT yet filed, had her sign a sheet of paper which
would help Cipolla expunge the case. The accuser has nothing to do with
an expungement. The DA does ... the prosecutor does. If she did sign a
sheet of paper enabling an expungement, then it was because she was in
the place of the prosecutor ... and that means that she filed a private crim-
inal complaint. Most arrests consist if police officers filing complaints or
affidavit. Prosecution via private complaint is very rare.
Engel said that Frank only said that he felt remorse for not telling his mom
that he was molested in Michigan. How was he molested? Why is it that
I have a witness who went to the same Michigan seminary for a summer-
time retreat and he was not harassed or abused by Cipolla, n any capacity?
Why did Diane Thompson repeatedly change her story and spend most of
her time mocking and belittling me? None the less, a lot of her testimony
contradicts the Rules of PA Criminal Procedure and known fact at the time.
What did Frank say? Where is Tucker? Why did Bendig lie to me four
times in a row? Why did Bendig not accuse Cipolla until Cipolla said to
Padre Pio Prayer Group members to stop sending Bendig money?
Why wasn't Diane Thompson mature enough to show her private crimi-
nal complaint, aka Offense/Incidence Report? I said long ago that she
only filed a private criminal complaint, and not charges. But, she had
to be so bratty about it, in her writings. Plus, she did not say that Tuck-
er and Frank gave video taped depositions. None the less, there were
no depositions of the two males in the Bendig deposition package that
I know of. Which Conte lawyer went to the Florida depositions?
Why was there no clarity and why is there still no clarity. There still are
many contradictions and fact-checked falsehoods present. After all, ever
since 1939, Police Station #9 was on Mount Washington and NOT in the
North Side where jurisdiction would exist in the Cipolla Case. What is
All in all, concerning the four main Thompson Stories (the one told to the
Pittsburgh Post Gazette --- the one told in Thompson's own web log posts ---
--- the one that she told to the anonymous person who sent me digital evidence
of that which she alleged --- and the story told to the person presenting herself
as Randy Engel:
Either all four accounts are falsehoods or three of the four accounts are falsehoods.
Plus, there were new allegations in the Engel article that were never mentioned by
Thompson before, and which necessitated me to call Pittsburgh witnesses pronto.
Likewise, allegations made by her via web log and via the Pittsburgh Post Gazette
did NOT appear in Engel's article. Thus, Thompson continues to change her story,
adding some allegations while leaving-out other ones. In as much, the first sign of
a liar is habitual story-changing.
|It's a sin to bear false witness.|
to the depths of Hell. young Frank called Diane Thompson from Florida, after
the Cipolla/Bendig news hit the papers and radio airwaves. Diane claimed to
Engel that Frank told her from Florida that Cipolla performed certain graphic
obscenities upon him that sound grotesque and which are NOT common inter-
ests for pedophiles. She claimed that Frank took flight to Florida before the
news hit the papers. HOWEVER:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Diane Thompson alleged to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette journalist who inter-
viewed her that, when she was on the telephone getting an operator to connect
her to the Pittsbuirgh police, she called out to Frank in the Pittsburgh home
where she was staying, and shouted, "Did he do anything to you?" She then
claimed that Frank said that Cipolla fondled him. Got it? Different stories.
Thompson told one person that Frank was home with her. She told a differ-
ent person that Frank was in Florida. Two stories mean one liar.
PLUS PLUS PLUS: Diane Thompson told Randy Engel that she had three
sons and one daughter. She stated that Frank was the eldest and had a dad
different than did Tucker. HOWEVER::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
The same Diane Thompson told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette journalist that
she had TWO daughters in her "first marriage," and TWO sons in her "se-
cond marriage." Got it? Two different stories. She said that Frank and
Tucker had the same dad. I then pointed out that Frank and Tucker have
two different last names and therefore two different dads. So, Thompson
then changed her story.
NOT TO MENTION: The writer identifying herself as Randy Engel stated
that Thompson alleged that, after Cipolla was "criminally charged," (he was
never charged) he showed-up at the back door of her home, while Tucker was
doing his homework, followed by Tucker running away, screaming, "Mom!"
Thompson told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette that, after Cipolla was "arrested,"
(he never was) he appeared at the front door, upon which Tucker ran up stairs,
saying, "Ooooooh no. We are all going to Hell, now."
Pertinent Point: If Cipolla were arrested and let free on bond or on his own
cognizance, there would have been a "condition for bail" where he would
have been ordered to stay away from Tucker. If Cipolla did what Thomp-
son claimed, then Cipolla would have had his bond revoked and he would
have been thrown in jail to stay throughout the duration of the case.
For the record: Cipolla was only served with a SUMMARY NOTICE that
was only signed by Diane Thompson, telling him to appear in city at a fu-
ture date of exactly or approximately 28 days hence. He was NEVER tak-
en down to any police station in handcuffs, as the Engel article falsely
HOWEVER: Engel stated that Cipolla was arraigned at Police Station #1.
That kind of thing does happen, and the North Side is #1 in city nomencla-
ture. But, Cipolla was only told to appear at city court on August 28, as
a part of a private criminal complaint.
That which happens today is that a private citizen files a private complaint
at a magistrate's office and the DA assigns an assistant DA to investigate it.
The DA investigates to see if there is any merit in "issuing process" against
the accused which consists in fingerprinting, mugshotting, arraignment, etc.
The assistant DA send approval or non-approval back to the magistrate's of-
fice. If the assistant Da approves the complaint, the accused goes through
due process of the law. If not, then the filer of the private criminal complaint
has the option of filing in the Court of Common Pleas, petitioning the court
to review the petition.
In the Diane Thompson case, Cipolla was to appear in city court ... not Police
Station #1, for a motions hearing. Thompson withdrew her complaint before
the August 28 date. Randy Engel's article does NOT concur with the Pennsyl-
vania Rules of Criminal Procedure. Plus, she did not post a transcript with the
person whom she interviewed whom she identified as Frank Labieaux.
The Engel article made it sound as if the only person who can file charges against
a wrongdoer is the victim. This only exists in civil court where lawsuits are filed,
and such a rule is known as Article III Standing. This is in the United States con-
stitution and pertains to "redressing grievances," aka civil complaints. No matter
how convincing the Engel article appears, its description of the procedure of law
is very much at variance with actual Pennsylvania law.
Did she actually contact Detectives Fogl and Nehouser 38 years after the fact?
Are they still alive? There are many things decisively wrong with the Engel
LET US NOT FORGOT THAT: Diane Thompson told the Pittsburgh Post
Gazette that she took her two sons with her to Cleveland immediately after the
"arrest" and retaliation against her (Cipolla was never arrested). HOWEVER:
Thompson told Randy Engel that her eldest son (Frank) took refuge in Florida,
while young Tucker and her stayed in Pittsburgh. Got it? Different stories.
IN ADDITION: Thompson claimed in her web log posts that Attorney Doug-
las Yauger flew to Florida and knocked on her door within 24 hours of having
been contacted by her, and then took from her "a police arrest report." Well,
no such thing exists. Plus, it is 100% proven that Cipolla was never arrested,
evidenced by the Summary Notice served upon him.
None the less, Thompson then stated that her two sons gave depositions on
Merritt's Island, for the Bendig lawsuit, as if they were too young to travel
with her to Pittsburgh. They were full-grown adults at the time.
I pointed out that the entire package of deposition transcripts in the Tim Bendig
Lawsuit were located and that there was no Diane Thompson deposition in the
docket. This fact was not acknowledged by Randy who actually reported that
Yauger showed up at Diane Thompson's home in haste, to take something other
than the very fictitious police arrest report. None the less, Randy added a twist
to the story. She claimed that Thompson's deposition was videotaped and that
this is why there was no deposition transcript in the Bendig package. There is
one confounding feature to this claim which invalidates Thompson's claim.
And that is this::::::::::::::::::::
All depositions MUST have present an attorney for the defendant, so that the
attorney can be given a chance to "impeach the witness' testimony." So, who
from the Conte law firm went to Florida on short notice? Thompson made it
sound of if the two lads were alone with a Merrit's Island lawyer. A Conte
law team lawyer was required to be there.
PLUS ... according to the rules of discovery, a copy of the video tape had to be
given to the defense attorneys. None were. Thompson lied.
|Liar, liar. Your soul in on fire.|
Concerning Thompson's claim of a police arrest report and something now obsolete
which was called
I do legal work for a construction company & am familiar with the court system
I am very much familiar with the aforesaid things, because I am in construction and
we get robbed from time to time. We were even the victims of check forgery, aka
bank fraud in 2016. I am the one in the company who had to go downtown to get a
copy of this type of thing. I am the one in the company who files all legal proceed-
ings, including the mechanics' lien that we put on a Wyndham Hotel, various writs
of execution, civil complaints, etc. I have even authored a handful of United States
Supreme Court briefs. I can assure you that whoever wrote that November 2016
article knows NOTHING about American law. Diane Thompson lied from A to Z
in her narration of an arrest which never occurred and the various acts of the DA's
office, the police, detectives, etc. It was ALL bull crap.
In continuing, the article attributed to the writing skills of Randy Engel declared
that Diane Thompson called the detective at "Police Station #9." Ladies and Gen-
tlemen, the detectives are NOT located at the police stations. They were recognize-
ed as a bureau in itself. They have their own office and processing area. I was there.
I know this personally, being that I am in construction, we get robbed from time to
time, and I am the one instructed to contact the one detective assigned to each case.
It appears that Diane Thompson watched too many Barney Miller Episodes.
You might also find detectives at a magistrate's office interviewing a person who
filed a private criminal complaint.
One more thing, Thompson declared to Randy Engel and to the Post Gazette that
two detectives were involved. Uhhhm, from my personal experience with police
investigations, only ONE detective is assigned to a case. It appears that Diane
Thompson watched too many episodes of Starsky & Hutch.
The only way two detectives will approach you is right after you file a private
criminal complaint at a magistrate's office. The two detectives do a screening
of the complainant. I know this from person experience. I was interviewed by
two detectives immediately after I filed a private criminal complaint.
I can go on and on and on, enumerating blatant falsehood after blatant falsehood
in the Nov 2016 article attributed to Randy Engel. But remember, I'm in construc-
tion and I am in Chicago, starting a new life, all the while heavily impeded by an
allergic asthma condition. Therefore, time is NOT a luxury for me.
Plus, I became significantly injured on Nov 30 when my ladder slid out from under
me and a square metal tube rudely introduced itself to the right side of my body, fol-
lowed by my left hand reaching out in a reflex action, to hold on to that same tube,
lest the bodily damage become paramount at the hands of gravity, making the acci-
dent and film-at-eleven newsworthy. This means during and after work, as well as
when I wake-up, I'll be negotiating pain for the next six to eight weeks In fact, I
typed this post in a noteable amount of physical pain. None the less:
I will add example after example, to show you what a farce the November 2016
article is. I will also seek to talk to the Cipolla family about a libel lawsuit. At
present, I gave you perhaps enough examples to assure you that Randy Engel now
has no more credibility than a raving psychotic trying to ram her square mind into
a very round hole. Plus plus plus, I have already posted a number of writings on
the falsehoods and contradictions and story-changes in Diane Thompson's public
accusation against Cipolla. It's amazing how people in Pennsylvania who present
themselves as alert, enlightened, and studious know NOTHING about the Penn-
sylvania rules of criminal procedure. I will be adding more when time allows.
For now, when and if you reading Engel's damning account, say the following:
"Okay. Where is the evidence? Where are the documents? Police Station #9
is a blatant falsehood. Cipolla being taken to Police Station #9 in handcuffs
and being charged, followed by him being released on his own cognizance
is a proven falsehood due to the Summary Notice which was NOT an arrest
warrant and the fact that only a judge at arraignment can have a defendant
released on his own cognizance.
FURTHERMORE: No one arrested for a violent crime inflicted on a human
get released on his own cognizance.
MOREOVER: You, the reader, would find it expected that I know what it is
to interview for consecutive hours a pedophile, learning about his preferences
in sexually abusively behavior. Well, I most certain know what it is to talk to
a non-priest (non-clergy-member) pedophile for hours at a time, as well as sex
abuse victims for shortly durations of time. In as much, there is only one of
two things that a pedophile yearns to first do to a victim. Randy Engel failed
to mention either one of the two things. Diane Thompson failed to mention
one of the two things. For someone who has the experience that I have in this
tragic topic, that fact was a huge give-away that Engel was writing a script of
lies. All things are in a pattern.
Incidentally, I will not tell anyone what those two things are, so that I can test
a person who claims to have been a sex abuse victim. If that person does not
mention one of those two things as the first thing that happened to him, and if
two certain other features are missing, then I know that the person is lying.
|It's still a sin to lie ... to bear fale witness.|
That' why there exists eternal damnation.
affidavits (eyewitness accounts) in defense of Cipolla. One of the witnesses did
go to Michigan with Cipolla and Bendig, to the exact same retreat place where
Diane Thompson claimed her son, Frank, was molested. This witness stated
that he saw no offensive, predatory, or suggestive behavior coming from the
many formerly known as Father Anthony Cipolla.
Ironically enough, the other witness spent decades involved with helping Downs
Syndrome children and she was outraged at Randy Engel.
For those unfamiliar, Engel founded an organization for Down Syndrome's pa-
tients. That second witness does NOT feel solidarity with Engel, even though
they both were in the same medical field of endeavor for years.
In Part III, Engel damned former bishop, Vincent Leonard, claiming that he did
NOT petition for the laicization (the defrocking) of the sodomite priest Richard
Ginder. Wooooo. Time out here. Bishop Vincent Leonard revoked all priestly
faculties from Richard Ginder. Vincent Leonard kicked Ginder out of the priest-
hood ministry. Period. Richard Ginder was already ousted, when he was arrest-
ed in 1978. In 1978, Ginder was arrested as a private citizen and NOT as a Pitts-
burgh diocesan priest. He was fired from that job by Leonard. Therefore, Engel
owes Vincent Leonard restitution for damning him.
Part III is Engel's outline of corrupted and protected priests in the diocese of Pitts-
burgh. The ultimate hypocrisy of that woman is that she ignored the Father James
Torquato Retaliations. That case has the most hard-copy evidence of them all.
Dozen of pieces of Torquato evidence can be posted online in minutes. Yet, she
acted as if Torquato never performed any invasive homosexual harassment and
whistle-blower retaliations. Engel writes selectively. That is the sign of a per-
son not seeking truth for the sake of the God of Truth.
Libel in Pennsylvania
That whole article was in-your-face hatred in its syntax and ambiance. It was very
hateful and embarrassingly non-factual. No evidence means no Free Card. Randy
Engel committed libel against the religious order known as the Pontifical Institute
of Foreign Missions. She committed easily provable libel against the then-DA of
Allegheny County, as well as the one in Beaver County during the Bendig years,
and the Cipolla family name, in addition to the administrators of the McGuire
Home. and the Pittsburgh diocesan seminary.
Oh, by the way, did you ever wonder if a deceased man's estate can sue someone
for publicly defaming that person after his death? Stay tuned and find out.
In addition, I personally knew some of the Pittsburgh diocesan seminarians and
can assure you that they were NOT Sodomites looking for sexy sex action at the
seminary. As I stated long ago, the sex scandal comprises an inner circle within
a seminary and which is supported by the top of the chain of command. It's a mat-
ter of an inner-circle and NOT something inclusive.
Randy Engel made it sound as if all seminarians were "getting it on" between
classes. Well, I do know for a fact that there was one seminarian knocking on
dormitory doors, looking for Sodomy encounters and he was kicked-out of the
Pittsburgh seminary for doing so. That kind of behavior was NOT protected at
the Pittsburgh seminary. It was punished. Randy Engel goes overboard with her
damning accusations. she needs to be put in her place.
None the less, the statute of limitations for libel, slander, defamation, and some-
thing known as "Invasion of Privacy in a False Light' is one year. Someone is in
dire need to make retractions or to consult with attorneys. The countdown began
in November 2016.
Chicago, My Unexpected Destiny
Now, as I stated, I'm in Chicago, restarting life. I have a massive agenda up here.
So, it might take some time for me to get the full outline of the true Cipolla case
done for you. None the less, I will write one step at a time. Even at that, the
examples above should tremendously help you realize that Donald Wuerl be-
came a star by means of an extreme misrepresentation. Plus, it shows that
Randy Engel is not at all trustworthy. She's NOT a viable source.
Take note that there were no interviews of Frank or Tucker in the Engel article.
Talking to the repeatedly proven liar, Diane Thompson, is pointless. It only
makes her supporters look all the more asinine. Statements from Frank and
Tucker are what are needed. Get me in contact with both of them, ASAP.
