That which is posted below (twice) is something that was sent to me five years ago. I was asked to not show it to anyone anywhere, until it was first posted for public view by (or at the behest of) the journalist who received it, in the first place.
Amongst other things, below is evidence that I keep my promises and that I keep confidentiality for the duration of time in which I'm asked to be silent about something. None the less, the magazine article pertaining to the text below was finally published, at the end of October 2023. Instead of me retelling the story attached to the text, I'll let you learn from the recently published article/post itself. It can be found through the link posted directly below. :
Keep in mind that even Wuerl and the Pittsburgh diocesan seminary superiors dismissed serial accuser Tim Bendig as a lying con artist . . . or or or as "someone who was disturbed." Of course, Bendig originally accused approximately two dozen individuals of unnatural activity that is forbidden in seminary life ... and which is reminiscent of the ancient City of Sodom. Then, when at his civil trial deposition, after having been asked how he knew that there were 23 or so males conducting Sodomy amongst each other, Bendig said that he got his information from the rumor mill ... from hearsay ... from gossip.
Tim Bendig, the ALLEGED Michelangelo of con artists whom I personally knew to be a liar
For those unaware, Tim Bendig was a seminary fail-out ... after merely one semester of attendance. He claimed that a dozen or so priests were breaking their vows in unnatural ways. He accused a similar number of seminarians of the same type of unnatural activity. He was regarded to have been a con artist by the Diocese of Pittsburgh, and was treated as such. Bendig was sent on his way, not to return to the seminary.
Then Donald Wuerl was caught in a triple cover-up of three physically abusive priests, one of whom was a reputed sadist ... and another of whom was a diocesan dean. This was the Wolk-Zula-Pucci Cover-up. It was October 1988. So, Tim Bendig made his way into the Pittsburgh Post Gazette's reporter staff's ranks, claiming that he was molested too. As a result, the Bendig accusations came out in print, on the 25th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination.
Bendig rode the coat-tails of Wuerl's triple cover-up, and eventually he received a large settlement which he quickly squandered. Bendig's story of multiple priests dedicating their lives to evil was edited down to one, namely Anthony Cipolla.
In review, it was in October of 1988 when District Attorney Pettit (of the county Southwest of Allegheny County) politely told the public that Wuerl's people were uncooperative during the criminal investigation pertaining to Frs Wolk, Zula, and Pucci. By December of 1998, this made conditions ripe enough for Bendig to take his accusations to a governmental department. Three months later, an official government officer officially stated that there was no legitimacy to Bendig's damning accusations against Cipolla.
Incidentally, for the subsequent civil lawsuit trial that Wuerl prevented, by means of giving Bendig a moderately hefty out-of-court settlement, Tim Bendig ALLEGEDLY had no witnesses to corroborate Bendig's allegations of Cipolla's 1980s conduct. Anthony Cipolla ALLEGEDLY had 72 witnesses to counter Bendig's damning accusations. One of the Cipolla witnesses was the son of a very close friend of mine. As a lad, he was on Cipolla's "altar server rotation." He said that Cipolla did nothing predatory to him. He also said that he saw no suspicious behavior on the part of Cipolla.
In the wings, there was one witness for Bendig, concerning the 1970s. That one person was repeatedly proven to be a liar. That she has been an habitual liar has been AFFIRMED & CONFIRMED.
In addition, she was and perhaps still is a very rude and crass individual known to play-act. In fact, that same individual claimed in 2014 that  I did NOT exist and that  my real name was a fake one being used by Anthony Cipolla whom she claimed was  operating this Wuerl-of-Hurt site, while simultaneously  operating a child molestation ring.  Thus, the lying hag was claiming that everything at this site was written by Cipolla.
For the record, Cipolla died in late Summer, 2016. It has now been SEVEN YEARS since Cipolla's sudden death, and this site has been in operation throughout that time span. I can assure you that it is NOT being operated by Anthony Cipolla's ghost.
After decades of pro-Wuerl propaganda being rolled out by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, finally came the reality check, in 2018, in the form of a Pennsylvania Grand Jury. That grand jury's many findings literally made this site nothing less than PROPHETIC.
The outlandish accusation of 2014, easily proven to be a lie from mid-2016 and beyond
The Year 2014 was one of several years when Cipolla was a multiple heart bypass patient on Social Security disability, endowed with little strength or inspiration to molest anyone. Remember, 2014 was 36 years beyond 1978. That's a sufficient amount of time to age. The Year 2014 was also 26 years beyond 1988.
The point to make here is that, in order to do physical evil, you need to have a lot of physical energy. In fact, in order to be insane, you also need a lot of energy, in order to orchestrate distortions of the mind. None the less, in order to be tempted ... and to feel the temptation ... you need strength-energy-vibrancy. Even a sense of desperation comes from this same energy-strength-vibrancy. Thus, a person with a heart disease isn't going to be inclined to do certain evils, such as wanton acts of molestation.
A physical sin is the act of wasting-abusing-misapplying-distorting your strength & energy. In fact, sin is a negation of your being, while you still have to continue to be. In sin, you exist as a distorted parody of the being you were meant to be.
Proof that this particular 1978 accuser was knowingly lying to the public in 2014 consisted in the fact that she NEVER contacted the FBI or the Ohio State Police, to report Cipolla as the operator of a molestation ring. At the time, incidentally, Cipolla was living in Ohio.
In addition, it was 100% proven that the defamatory hag knew that I existed. This is evidenced by the hate mail she sent to me, via email. She knew how to contact me. She did contact me via emails that I refused to answer, lest she be able to "doctor" my responses with some defamatory accusation. Plus, she doxed me, placing online a photo of my former residence and a map to that particular location. Yet, she claimed that she could not find online anything about me. A liar she was, over and over again.
That defamatory hag could not have cared less than she already did about the pain her worldwide lie would cause family members of mine. The first sign of a liar is that the person has zero empathy for the pains and sufferings of others ... especially the pain the liar directly caused others to endure. Such a liar is known as a psychopath. And holier-than-art-thou church lady, Randy Engel, embraced the 1978 & 2014 accuser as the bringer of truth.
The Vatican's Highest Court
Even when the Cipolla case went before the Vatican's tribunal for a second time, the tribunal did NOT seek to discern if this priest molested anyone. It sought to discern if a bishop is allowed to defrock (laicize) a priest for a diagnosis of suicidal tendencies, especially after the priest received a second opinion from a board-certified psychiatrist who gave him a clean bill of mental health.
For the record, Cipolla said to an analyst that life was worthless if a man couldn't do his vocation. That made Cipolla a marked man, marked as a suicidal person. Wuerl ran with this one diagnosis and nothing else.
The Kangaroo Court of Public Opinion
But of course, Donald Wuerl and Tim Bendig let people be deceived into thinking that the highest court in the church found this priest to be a molester. Well, Wuerl used this priest's case as a diversionary tactic & smoke screen, to hide Wuerl's many sexual abuse cover-ups. Those cover-ups were uncovered by a grand jury in 2018. The Year 2018 was twenty years after I first revealed Donald Wuerl as a vicious cover-up artist and ratifier of whistleblower retaliations.
Wuerl was a curse upon the Church who needed to be removed. Everyone in power & influence ignored me, except for one radio talk show host who saw to it that some and only some of my evidence & writings would be personally delivered into the hands of then Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger ... to no avail. This showed that Ratzinger had no empathy for human suffering. And of course, Ratzinger's papacy was a disgrace, as was evidenced by Ratzinger's own butler providing for public view damning evidence against Vatican residents of high office.
In 2018, even after I was proven right about Wuerl, I received zero phone calls from the media asking me how I knew about Donald Wuerl being so immersed in corruption. Rather, I received one threatening telephone call. Then nothing. No one in the media contacted me to even ask how it felt to have been caught in TWO RETALIATIONS that Wuerl ratified. However, the pageview meter of this 5th Edition site shows that I was NOT ignored by the reading public. Go figure.
In 2018, it was essential to give the exculpatory evidence posted above to the Pennsylvania grand jury members who were investigating the Diocese of Pittsburgh. The photocopy at the top of this discourse is yet another jigsaw puzzle piece that confirms the repeated phenomenon of person after person after person coming forth, to reveal how much of an ALLEGED fraud & con artist that I personally knew Tim Bendig to be. That exculpatory piece of evidence, alone, would have changed the Cipolla Case tremendously, in the Court of Public Opinion. The man with the exculpatory evidence was ignored . . . by the government ... so that Cipolla could easily be portrayed as a monster from Hell.
Yet, at the outset of reviewing this case, one instantly realizes that Cipolla had access to a platoon of altar boys and numerous other youth, all throughout the 1980s. Being that molestation does NOT exist in a vacuum, Cipolla either molested a multiplicity of youth through the years or he molested no one. Thus, are you going to apply the audacity of telling humanity that, throughout the 1980s, Cipolla only molested the Tim Bendig who had zero corroborating witnesses and zero pieces of evidence to support any of his damning 1980s allegations? In fact, there were numerous witnesses who refuted Bendig pronto. And of course, as soon as Bendig received his out-of-court settlement, he immediately lied to the public, with the help of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, inter alia. Inter alia means "amongst other things."
Extreme Psychiatric Treatment NOT
Bendig lied to the public, when he said that he was going to take his settlement money and buy intense psycho-therapy treatment. He made it sound as if he needed to go to Switzerland or to a high tech lab deep in the forests of Germany.
The red flag that should have prevailed in everyone's mind was that Bendig could have gotten himself on SSA disability which would have given him full medical insurance in the ultra high tech nation of the United States. After all, the United States landed on the moon. So, the same United States could provide treatment to those emotionally traumatized. In fact, Bendig could have been enrolled in an "intense psychiatric" university research study, in the same good ole U.S.A. So, the question is This ===>
"Did Bendig ever apply for disability status anywhere in America, due to traumatic stress?" Well, Bendig took his "intense psychiatric treatment money" and purchased a bar & grill with it. It was called the Two Step, and that business quickly folded. In little time, all of the Wuerl-given settlement money was gone. Allegedly, none of it was spent on expensive & esoteric psychiatric treatment.
The availability of Social Security Disability and Medicaid Assistance was proof enough for the reading public to have instantly realized that Bendig was lying to humanity ... lying about finally getting the money needed for medical expenses. If Bendig were incapacitated by mental trauma due to molestation, the psychiatric treatment money was already available to him, thanks to FDR's New Deal and the 1960s civil rights congresses of America ... as well as university research programs.
The 1978 Accuser ... a single mom who didn't accuse Cipolla until after he said that he wouldn't get the St. Vincent de Paul Society to pay her monthly rent
And of course, the 1978 accusing mother is a proven liar without any doubt, too. This has already been explained in detail, and there is a search box at the top righthand corner of this site.
In summary, if Cipolla were a molesting monster, there would have been a number of people who would have eventually come forth, to accuse Cipolla in the same way in which multiple accusers of John Hoehl finally came forth.
John Hoehl was the headmaster of a Pittsburgh diocesan high school that no longer exists. It was located in Beaver County, approximately 20 miles northwest of Downtown Pittsburgh. In fact, Wuerl is the one who put Hoehl back into ministry after Hoehl was first reported for sexual wrongdoing. Then, as soon as Wolk, Zula, and Pucci were indicted, Wuerl suspended Hoehl from all priesthood activities, followed by Hoehl ever-so-coincidentally leaving Pennsylvania jurisdiction.
Hoehl went to West Virginia and became a counselor there. Wuerl DID NOT warn the West Virginia authorities about Hoehl. Thus, Hoehl constituted another one of Wuerl's cover-ups. Years later, accusers of Hoehl came forth. So too did a lawsuit involving more priests than Hoehl.
|Author, Fr. John Hardin, is the elderly priest in the center. Cipolla is to his left. He was well aware of what Cipolla was enduring.
My goal was to show the public what Josh Shapiro ended up showing in 2018. Thus, it will have zero effect on me if Cipolla is finally proven to have been a molester or not. My goal was to show you that Donald Wuerl was a thoroughly vicious, corrupt, self-seeking, & deceptive narcissist who had no business being the bishop of anyone anywhere, at any time. Concerning Cipolla specifically, my goal was to show you that Wuerl used the Cipolla Case as a smoke screen, to hide Wuerl's several sexual predator cover-ups.
My goal was to ultimately show you that Donald Wuerl was one intrusively sick joke. I started doing this in 1998, to no avail. Twenty years later, Josh Shapiro concurred with my thesis statement, putting forth numerous additional pieces of evidentiary support. And then, in 2023, another pivotal piece of evidence was made available to the public. It's posted twice here, at the beginning and the end of this post ... of this discourse.
One more thing: Josh Shapiro had an added objective. I'm not going to get into it, right now.
Once again, in order to be clearly understood
During the 2018 Pennsylvania grand jury inquest, the sole detective in the 1978 Cipolla Case did testify. Pursuant to that testimony, it was certain that Cipolla was NOT arrested and that there was no "male seminal fluid laboratory finding." No STRS. No SNPs. No intervention of a forensic lab. The 1978 accusing mother lied ... as usual. The 2018 PA Grand Jury findings are public domain material. Those findings are NOT locked away in a secret vault, somewhere. They're available for the reading.
The real reason ... stated on official paper ... as to why Cipolla was removed from ministry
Cipolla was only "officially" removed from ministry, because a psychiatrist deemed Cipolla suicidal. And of course, Cipolla was ordered to go to a psychiatric facility, on account of Bendig's 1988 allegations, for analysis. HOWEVER, Bendig made a laundry list of accusations against a number of priests the year or so prior. This was done shortly after he failed-out of the Pittsburgh seminary. Thus, Wuerl originally recognized Bendig to be a liar with hyped-up claims.
Cipolla wasn't ordered to a psychiatric facility until Fathers Wolk, Zula, and Pucci were arrested, in Wuerl's first uncovered cover-up. It wasn't until after Bendig's story appeared in newspaper print that Donald Wuerl suspended Cipolla and sent him for psychiatric analysis.
Now, Cipolla was declared suicidal, and Wuerl used that as an excuse to dismiss him from ministry. Yet, Cipolla went to another psychiatric facility on his own dime, in NYC. This means that the costs of the hospital visit came out of Cipolla's own bank account. Cipolla only went there to get a "second opinion" diagnoses. Cipolla got a clean bill of health from there. Wuerl rejected it.
And remember, all that Cipolla did on one occasion was tell a psychiatrist that life wasn't worth living, if a man cannot perform his vocation from God. That was it. Cipolla was branded for life.
Once again, there was no trial at the Vatican, to see if Cipolla molested Bendig. Bendig lied when he explained the Cipolla case's transpiration at the Vatican. According to a number of people who knew Bendig, Bendig allegedly lies as a matter of habit. In fact, all that Bendig did to me was lie.
The DECISIVE factor in the Randy Engel narrative of the 1978 Cipolla Case
If you do not first focus-in on the following allegation made by the 1978 accusing mother ... and by Randy Engel as interviewer/journalist ... then you are wasting your time with the Cipolla Case. This is because those allegations were proven to be false ones, and they were said to be the catalyst for Anthony Cipolla's arrest and arraignment which never happened, in the first place.
As was previously stated, in 1978, Cipolla was called to a "summary hearing," where he was told that no criminal charges will be pursued. Thus, the summary hearing of July 1978 resulted in Cipolla being free to go. Hopefully, by now, the hard of thinking finally got it ... concerning the 1978 case which was presented very falsely by the press ... since the late 1980s.
Incidentally, Cipolla said to me that the last thing that the magistrate said to him at that 1978 hearing was, "Watch out who you try to help." And yes, it should have been the direct object pronoun, whom, preceded by "be aware of" --- whom you try to help. But, the magistrate was speaking off the record, in American vernacular, and its understood what he allegedly said, if he really did say that.
Keep in mind that the 2016 Randy Engel article and my writings on the Cipolla Case differ drastically, because Randy only spoke with the 1978 accuser family who already was proven to have told multiple lies ... and with the Tim Bendig who was multiply alleged by many ... including me ... to be a very dishonest con artist.
In contrast, I used official documents and did successfully contact one of the two blue-uniformed police officers who entered the 1978 accusing family's apartment, to take a statement from the accuser mother. I also conversed with other people whose identities will be kept private ... for their protection. I was offered information.
Those person's identities are being kept private, because the 1978 accusing mother did dox me, in having posted a photo of my former residence and a map to that residence. That same battle-ax hag also contacted people I personally knew, making those people feel invaded ... intruded-upon ... put on-the-spot ... confronted by the accusing mom, during a time when her children were middle aged adults.
For the record, I located the 1978 police officer through the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was an employee of the Steeler's corporation at the time. He was very nice and personable.
It was claimed that the one thing which triggered Anthony Cipolla's arrest (which never happened in real life) was that of a laboratory, in July of 1978, reporting that Cipolla's adult male fluid matched that which was on the nine year old lad's undies. This lad was the accusing mother's younger son --- actually the middle son. However, the youngest is not a part of this case.
In addition, the other thing which did NOT happen in real life was that seminal fluid from Cipolla was given to a lab, in 1978 or in any other year.
The Engel narration made it seem as if this forensic lab report came back on the same day the imaginary Cipolla sample was submitted to the lab. For starters, there was NO submission of Cipolla's male fluid made to any police lab in 1978. Moreover, if there had been a sample submitted, then the test results would not have come back so soon. In the 1970s, the average waiting time for laboratory test results was in the weeks; ====> allegedly 52 days or so, on average, according to the charts I obtained. It looks like someone watched too many CBS detective shows where the case is solved in an hour.
There was no Forensic Evidence in the 1978 case. The mother lied to Randy Engel in 2016.
Now, if any adult male (seminal) fluid from Cipolla were on the nine year old child's undies, then it would not have been reported until September 1978. And if there were found on the lad's underwear male fluid from Cipolla, then Cipolla would most definitely have been indicted, arrested, and arraigned in September of 1978. Of course, in criminal investigations, short-tandem-repeats (STRs) are DNA fingerprints used in police work today. In the 1970s, such testing was new.
The claim that there was a "male fluid" lab finding in the 1978 case was a complete falsehood, evidenced by the fact that Cipolla was never arrested. And the complete contradiction involved here is that the accusing mother of 1978 claimed that Cipolla molested the young lad by using Cipolla's adult hand on the very small ... very short ... very weak private part of the nine year old child. Thus, if that particular nine year old child were able to have fired his little rocket, then the police should have checked Cipolla's clothing for the young lad's male fluid instead. Thus, Randy Engel contradicted herself in her own writing.
The act which Engel alleged Cipolla to have committed on a regular basis, with a nine year old, was so anatomically contrary to the law of physics that a person instinctively raises his hands in frustration, stating to anyone near him, "Ah, this case is total bull crap. Who do these hags think they're fooling? I'm outa here." Yet, you have to respond to each allegation, step by step, as if filling-out a scorecard.
Incidentally, what is the youngest age in which a human male can emit such fluid? ANS: Upon the start of puberty. Q: Does this happen at nine years of age? ANS: Usually somewhere around the age of eleven.
Concerning Engel's allegation of the exact physical act by which Cipolla was claimed to have molested the young nine year old lad, that's not how child molestation works. That type of action would have been painful assault & battery on the youngster's testes. The young lad would have been eventually writhing in pain. How could Randy Engel have been so out of touch with reality, in a blatant medical observation that even the illiterate would instantly recognize?
Molestation cases involved the opposite action, where children's hands were used upon the adult molester's private anatomical you-know-what. An example of this was the case of molester Marcial Maciel Degollado. Maciel literally told his young students that the pope gave him a dispensation, for medical reasons. None the less, Engel described a common form of predatory sexual abuse entirely backgrounds.
Incidentally, the religious order founded by Maciel had 33 priests who were accused of having molested 175 individuals. Much on Maciel can be found online. I even wrote a long article on Maciel. So, the info on that less-than-honorable being is presently at the world's fingertips.
All the Work for Nothing
All the work I did ended up being thankless work that cost me everything. I might have received five "thankyou-for-all-you-have-done" messages throughout this past 25 years. But, that was it. However, one person did give me $100 in gratitude once, during a time of need, through the hands of the Michael Ference I haven't seen in years. Yes, it was the same Mike Ference who was hated & despised badly by the Diocese of Pittsburgh. It was the Michael Ference whose son had been shot in the head on Pittsburgh diocesan property, while doing nothing more than sitting on a school bus.
This was also the Michael Ference who was bullied by Wuerl's henchmen so much so that he settled his lawsuit out of court for a ridiculously low sum of money. Wuerl let the suffering family be terrorized by Wuerl's surrogates all the more. This is one of the reasons why Wuerl should have never been the bishop of anyone, anywhere, at any time. Wuerl is a coward who hid behind a wall of thuggery.
Mike was opposed by the Wuerl People, for trying to bring out the truth on the matter of a Fr. John Wellinger long before Wellinger made the news in a dishonorable way. Seeking truth is something that the Diocese of Pittsburgh severely frowned-upon. Finding the truth was something that the same diocese actively tried to prevent you from knowing. The Truth and the Diocese of Pittsburgh were historically not friends. Then came the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and non-Catholic Ann Rodgers meddling in the affairs of a church to which she was an outsider. She was obsessed with making Wuerl look like the super hero he was not.
Wuerl & the Masonic Factor
Enter the Masons, a group historically known to be hostile to the Catholic Church. Several popes formally condemned masonic sects. However, in his twisted sense of wisdom, Wuerl decided to give consecrated Church property to the local masons, so that they could build a new local temple there.
For the record, that constitutes a sin of sacrilege. The claim was that the land was given in exchange for a traffic light. Uhhhhm, excuse me, but only the government can permit the installation of a traffic light, and this is not yet the Masonic States of America.
None the less, Tim Bendig's replacement attorney ever so coincidentally was known as the attorney who provided his services to the local masons. In review, the masons were established in the early 18th Century to destroy the Catholic Church. However, today's "post-conciliar" bishops were more successful at destroying the Church than the masons ever were. After all, a father can destroy a family much quicker than a neighbor can.
Bishop of the BIG LIE
Wuerl then used the Cipolla Case as a diversionary tactic, to hide Wuerl's many cover-ups. Those cover-ups were uncovered for public view in 2018. Even at that, there was at least one deadly Pittsburgh Diocesan cover-up omitted from the grand jury investigation --- the Torquato Retaliations Ratified by Donald the Vicious ... Donald the Sneaky ... Donald the Power Abuser.
None the less, the grand jury presented to the public enough on Donald Wuerl's cover-ups to prove that  Donald Wuerl,  "reporter" Ann Rodgers, and  other Pittsburgh media personnel were liars, in claiming Wuerl to have been the holiest bishop in America . . . literally. He was called the "bishop of Zero Tolerance." He is now the "tiny bishop of the Big Lie." Yes, he also was Cardinal Elevator Shoes. A Washington media member called Wuerl, "a sleight man."
Wuerl and his minions were basically trying to takeover the entire American church via newspaper propaganda. It was an attempt to make all the other bishops in America appear to be beneath Wuerl. Well, one of the "credible" molestation victims of a Pittsburgh priest literally said to a Chicago journalist that Donald Wuerl was the most evil presence he had ever encountered in his life. I saw Wuerl as a haughty little brat looking for worship, or at the least, inordinate praise. That's the way he acted in my presence.
The Big Picture
The claim that Cipolla was arrested in 1978 was a big lie. He was only summoned to a summary hearing, followed by him going home after the hearing; never to be put into handcuffs at any time, ever. Therefore, in 1978, no DA living in Pittsburgh bullied any mom into dropping criminal charges that only a judge or a prosecutor can dismiss, in the first place. Now, Cipolla was summoned to a "summary hearing." But, that is NOT an arrest ... nor an indictment. After the hearing, Cipolla went home and NOT to the County Lockup.
Quick Law Lesson
As a quick American law lesson, once a criminal action has been filed, only a judge/magistrate or the prosecuting DA/Solicitor can "dismiss the case." In 1978, if Cipolla had finally been indicted ... and he was not ... then DA Bob Coville only needed to "drop the charges" by himself ... on his own volition. He didn't need any mother, father, brother, aunt or uncle to sign any paperwork. This is the case AFTER charges are filed.
Before charges are filed, there sometimes is the "private criminal complaint" in process. Such a thing is a petition to the DA's office, asking the DA personnel to file criminal charges upon the person mentioned in the private complaint. In such a case, a DA can still refuse to file charges. However, there are times when a civilian petitioner withdraws the petition ... withdraws the "private criminal complaint." This is what people mean when they are speaking American slang and saying, "She dropped the charges." Sometimes slang is asininely counterproductive, confusing people in the process. The proper way to describe it is that "She withdrew her complaint." It's much more simple that way.
Now, in the 1970s, if a DA/solicitor declined to "file charges," in any private criminal complaint, the complainant could then make himself/herself the "ad hoc" prosecutor and prosecute the case. Such a thing would instantly make the civilian petitioner subjected to a crippling lawsuit, if the defendant were found not guilty. Thus, such a thing was too big a risk for most civilians. And of course, the 1978 accusing mom ... who accused Anthony Cipolla of things she never saw ... was academically incapable ... and perhaps even mentally incapable ... of prosecuting any kind of court case. I found her to not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier.
As far as goes the law today =====> If a Pennsylvania DA refuses to file criminal charges, concerning a "private criminal complaint," then the complainant's recourse is to file a civil action in United States district court, asking a federal magistrate for "an injunction" that requires the local DA to finally file criminal charges. This spares the civilian complainant of prosecutorial liability.
Your lucky numbers: 37 and 46. Hut hut.
In Randy Engel's defamatory & intelligence-insulting 2016 article, she claimed that there were two detectives assigned to the case, with badge numbers 37 & 46. This shows that Engel watched too many episodes of Starsky & Hutch in the 1970s. Instead, there were two blue uniformed officers, numbered 37 & 46, who went to the accusing mother's apartment and wrote down her statement, passing the statement the sole detective of the case.
In brevity, the 1978 detective had NO EVIDENCE against Cipolla. He believed the tale of a 12 year only because he thought that 12 year old youths would ever lie to police. He then said to the accusing mom, "If he (Cipolla) ever does it again (assuming that he molested anyone in the first place), he'll be arrested."
Take note that the "12 year old" of 1978 was the older brother of the previously mentioned nine year old child, and that one of his tales told to Randy Engel was easily proven to be a lie. It was the claim that he twice vandalized an African-American Methodist church. It was claimed that he did so, out of frustration over the Anthony Cipolla who was neither African-American nor Methodist.
For the record, arrested were finally made after the second vandalism, and the 12 year old was NOT one of those arrested. Others did the vandalism.
In 2016, Randy Engel was nothing more than the useful idiot of the 1978 accusing mom whose goal in 2016 was a financial settlement from the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Randy should have realized that that woman and her middle-aged children had a major conflict of interest. But, Randy fell for everything they said, even though the description of criminal proceedings was completely bogus. This included Cipolla having a hearing at this police station and at that police station, when the publicly known truth is that a true criminal defendant has his hearings at none other than ====> the county courthouse.
None the less, the 1978 accuser and her adult children made sure that Cipolla would look like a monster --- for their financial gain --- thereby creating for themselves a conflict of interest that Engel deliberately ignored.
Concerning the claim that Cipolla had Biblical BODY SORES
I was contacted recently ... by an individual whose name I'm not going to disclose, for the sake of privacy ... and was informed by that individual that no one claimed that Cipolla had sores all over his body ... except for the 1978 accusing mother who exaggerated everything anyway. Cipolla merely had rashes. Chances are that he had one small mark that was impertinent to the case. That mark was on one forearm. Yet, the accusing mother of 1978 had to blow that minor observation out of proportion. So too did Bendig's masonic lawyer, during a deposition.
At this point, keep in mind that Cipolla did have diabetes and neuropathy in his latter years of life. Moreover, rashes are not solely caused by microbiological actions. After all, there does exist purpura and vasculitis.
It was finally admitted that no Conte law firm member coached any witness
I was also told by the exact same person who originally claimed to have been coached by a Conte lawyer that no assistant lawyer of Attorney John Conte told anyone to testify that Cipolla received a sore (or rash) on anyone of his forearms from a spider bite. I'm going to be polite and leave "it" at this, without adding a sarcastic commentary ... or a smart aleck response. But take note that people on the side of the mean-spirited and arrogant hag who doxed me always exaggerated things to the point of them becoming ridiculous lies.
In review, Cipolla is now said to have had rashes, and not Biblical sores on his body. The pertinent point is that Bendig's attorney ... during deposition time ... was so hard-up to find anything against Cipolla that he brought into the conversation a red mark-blotch-rash on one of Cipolla's forearms, as if that could prove that Cipolla were the grand molester of the ages.
At the time, there was a highly praised priest whom John Paul II admired and who ended up being the grand molester of the ages. His name was Marcial Maciel Degollado. Donald Wuerl wrote the preface to one of this grand molester's books. Yes, Wuerl wrote the preface to a Maciel book.
The Irony of Engel's Involvement
Take note: For years, while Anthony Cipolla was forbidden to present himself as a Catholic priest ... due to a diagnosis of "suicidal tendencies" ... Randy Engel would regularly edit his "Thorns & Roses" magazine. Cipolla and Engel knew each other for years, and throughout that time, she never wrote in condemnation of Cipolla. I already explained this previously, and there is a search box at the top righthand corner of this site.
In the investigation of Tim Bendig's accusation, questioned were guys who were members of Cipolla's altar boy rotation. They all claimed that Cipolla did nothing to them. Relatives of Cipolla were asked if he molested them, and they said no. In fact, one of my closest personal friends had a son who was one of Cipolla's altar boys, and her son said that Cipolla did nothing to him. He also said that he saw no suspicious activity between Bendig and Cipolla, and he stayed in the same motels as did Cipolla and Bendig. The former altar boy furthermore said, "Tim was weird. Really weird."
My Neighbor at the Time, the Late Attorney John Conte
For the record, Cipolla's attorney in the Bendig lawsuit was my neighbor, Attorney John Conte. He lined up 72 witnesses for Cipolla, in the Bendig civil lawsuit trial that Donald Wuerl made sure would not happen. After all, dozens of humans stating under oath that Cipolla never molested them ... while testifying that they found nothing suspicious between Cipolla and Bendig ... would have permanently destroyed Wuerl's narrative.
In fact, the 2016-to-2018 Pennsylvania grand jury would have looked for the existence of added accusers of Cipolla, if its member were doing their jobs right. Thus far, there were two packets of accusers against Cipolla. One was the 1978 family of a "single mom" who made allegations easily proven to be contrary to fact and/or nature. The other one was Bendig alone, with zero corroborating witnesses. Both parties were found to have asserted damning things which were quickly proven to have been lies. Dishonesty defines both parties. With this being the case, take notice:
If you were molested by Anthony Cipolla ... or if you were targeted for molestation by Cipolla ... then, you are welcomed to contact me. Eventually, we are going to have to speak to each other ... even if by phone only ... after an intro ... so that I can tell if you are lying or not.
So, if you have been molested by Cipolla, you can solve the case once and for all. Thus far, no one has ever contacted me and told me that he/she was molested by Cipolla. However, a number of people contacted me, telling me that Tim Bendig is ALLEGEDLY a pathological liar.
Of course, in July of 1978, police did come a knocking on Cipolla's rectory door, for investigative purposes, after a "single mother" made her complaint to two blue uniformed officers who carried Badge Numbers 37 and 46. Then, at the end of July, Cipolla was summoned to a Summary Hearing. He was told that the case was closed, followed by him going back to his living quarters. To claim that he was arrested in 1978 is to lie. We continue:
Now, the accusing mother (a single mom) of the short-lived 1978 case had two sons at the time whom she claimed were molested. One was circa 12 years old and one was nine. She and her eldest son ... in 2016 ... claimed that the son was molested by Cipolla in 1977, at the age of 11 years of age. Both persons claimed that Cipolla additionally introduced her eldest son to a privately performed practice that causes some to experience a lustful feeling (aka arousal) ... let us politely say. I am not going to describe it, out of a sense of manners and civility. It's something that normal adults occasionally do, for medical benefit and with no arousal.
None the less, it was a home medical procedure that isn't too healthy for a 12 year to perform, in the first place. This is one of the reasons why it's doubtful that Cipolla introduced the young lad to this. Secondly, it's a practice that would have given Cipolla no pleasure, and of course, molesters want full contact with their prey and personal pleasure.
None the less, the 1978 accusing mother expressly said to Randy Engel in 2016 that the alleged molestation of 1977 made the eldest son so emotionally traumatized that he vandalized the same local black Methodist Church twice. And of course, this was a huge lie. Vandalisms done under mental trauma are NOT random. They are targeted to the wrong-doers only. Vandalizing a black church twice is something premeditated. If you were going to do premeditated vandalism, you would vandalize the church where the alleged molester worked ... or lived ... or both. You would at least vandalize something that the molester owned.
Now, the two vandalisms were reported in the newspapers, and then arrests were finally made. The young 12 year old of 1978 was NOT one of the individuals arrested. This was one of many Randy Engel Lies, published in 2016. Apparently, Randy Engel was too lazy to do any fact-checking.
The newspapers reported the first act of vandalism to have been the slashing of tires in the church parking lot, during church services. Well, if you are going to slash tires throughout a parking lot, you cannot do it alone. You need a LOOKOUT MAN ... "a spotter" ... to warn you of who's coming.
The eldest son was said to have been molested alone. So, who have had the solidarity of mind to join the youth in victimizing metropolitan blacks who did NOT molest the boy, as if anyone actually did? So, who would help a youth terrorize black people attached to a religion different from the one to which Cipolla was attached? Well, according to police, no one, being that individuals other than the 12 year old son were arrested for both vandalisms.
Once again, for those hard of thinking, if not hard of hearing ... or who are unable to read well
Very simply, if one is harmed by a member of the Catholic Church, then it is reasonably expected that one vents his frustration on Catholic Church property, and NOT on African-American Methodist property.
BTW, the press went out of its way to assure the public that the double vandalism was not racially motivated. In addition, acquiring the info and news articles on those two vandalisms was frustrating and time consuming. Randy Engel was apparently too lazy to fact-check the claim.
Bendig's letter writing talents
Bendig originally threatened me in typewriting, by telling me that I was going to be criminally prosecuted for that which I wrote about him. However, Pennsylvania has no such criminal statute, concerning defamation. Furthermore, I did NOT commit any wanton act of libel against Bendig, and as you can see, I regularly use the anti-lawsuit word, "alleged."
Bendig's threatening letter contained bogus cc's, where it was claimed that the letter also sent to the FBI, PA State Police, the Allegheny County DA, etc. Bendig might as well have added the Boogey Man, the Joker, Santa Claus, Fred Flintstone, Joe Mama and the Abominable Snowman, being that the cc section was already ridiculous.
The bottom line is this: Whether Cipolla were guilty or innocent of molesting Bendig, Wuerl used the Cipolla case as a diversionary tactic, to hide Wuerl's many cover-ups. Wuerl hyper-exaggerated the Cipolla Case to deceive people into thinking that he were the holiest & most protective bishop in America. Wuerl went out of his way to make Cipolla look like a monster from Hell. This was so that Wuerl could look like the protector of the ages.
And the Cipolla Case at the Vatican only involved the question if whether or not a bishop has the right to laicize a priest for being diagnosed as "suicidal," even though a second-opinion doctor officially stated that the same priest was mentally healthy.
The Vatican Case did NOT seek to discern if Cipolla molested the Tim Bendig who took his settlement dollars from Wuerl and purchased a bar & grill with it, instead of having intense psychiatrist treatments performed on him ... as Bendig told the public he would do. Period.
Bendig definitely lied to me throughout the time we spoke ... which occurred maybe a year after Bendig's threatening letter was sent to me. And of course, I refused to meet Bendig in person ... or to speak to him any further ... because I knew that he would lie about the meeting and any further conversations between the two of us.
For the record, one day, out of the blue, Bendig called me ... and he did the feel-sorry-for-me routine at first, followed by him trying to intimidate me and make me feel insecure.
During the first half of the conversation, Bendig had me completely conned. He had me fooled. He had me tricked. He then stated some declarative statements with a tone of absolute confidence that I knew were falsehoods. At that point, I silently thought to myself, "Aaaaaaaaah. A con artist. Oh, okay. I see what I'm dealing with, here" As Bendig kept lying to me, I additionally thought to myself, "Wow! Cipolla really is innocent, after all." I remained cool, calm, and collected as the Bendig conversation proceeded. After all, private academy students are taught to be very well mannered.
The detective believed the 12 yr old only because he did not think that 12 yr olds lied to police
Now, pursuant to his grand jury testimony, the only detective involved in the short-lived 1978 Cipolla case said that he believed the 12 year old boy's 1977 story of Cipolla, only because the detective did not believe that anyone under the age of 13 would ever lie to the police. However, in the early 1980s, there was a massive case involving pre-school children who were nagged into finally making up some kind of story about having been sexually abused.
That case endured for 7 years, meaning that, at the end of that case, those pre-schoolchildren had now reached the age of 11 and 12. They were eventually caught lying to police and prosecutors from A to Z --- even at the ages of 11 and 12. Therefore, it has already been proven that 11 & 12 year old youths lie to the police.
In that California case, it got to the point where they said that witches were flying about, during a ritual abuse scenario. Some said that they were given rides in hot air balloons. In fact, the photos of various adult males were shown to the kids by police, in the search to identify the people who were supposed to have molested 360 children. Some of the photos were of males that the police knew the schoolchildren never met. Those adult male photos were known as "the control sample." Yet, one schoolchild identified one of the men in the control sample as someone who molested him/her. That person was Chuck Norris, being that Chuck's photo was in the control sample.
Needless to say, Chuck Norris was never at that daycare center and he never met any of those children. Thus, Chuck Norris most certainly DID NOT molest any of those children whom he never met, in the first place.
Moreover, the kids told the authorities that there were secret tunnels used in the sexual abuse. An archeologist was hired by certain parents, to use ground-penetrating radar at the pre-school grounds. He said that there was evidence of tunnels under that pre-school building. Then the basement slab was removed. Nothing. No tunnel was ever found.
More importantly, the children claimed that there were human sacrifice events that occurred. HOWEVER, there were no missing children in the general area and no human remains were found at the pre-school grounds. Only the remains of one tortoise and a few broken toys were found ... at a daycare center, where toys are commonly found.
In fact, one child said that the adult male operator of the pre-school beat a horse to death with a baseball bat. But, there were no reports of missing horses from any area ranch ... and no remains of any horse were found on site. So, as you can see, the accusations went beyond the point of ridiculous. Yet, parents and jurors believed them. This is why there are defamation lawsuits in America. Americans have managed to become absolutely asinine, separating themselves far from natural instinct and common sense.
It was called the McMartin Case, circa 1984 to 1990. The judge of one of the criminal trials was absolutely criminal in curbing the defendants' rights to a fair trial. There is more to the case, such as one of the defendants being jailed for five years without ever having been convicted of a crime. Concerning this, it was a hung jury thing, where the need to retry him was followed by another hung jury. All in all, there originally were 321 criminal counts filed. In seeking child testimony, children were prodded by a gung-ho social worker, in asking them the predictable loaded questions.
Included was the fact that the prosecution spent three years keeping hidden from the defense team the fact that the woman who started the accusations was afflicted with mental illness long before she hurled the accusations. She even stated that the male operator of the pre-school could fly ... without having to go to the airport to do so ... and without needing to board a helicopter, to do so. She died of alcoholism.
You need to learn about that case, so that you can realize that children most certainly do lie to detectives. In fact, one of the McMartin children came forth many years later and admitted to having knowingly & deliberately lied. The person said that he/she would say whatever he/she thought his/her parents wanted to hear.
No detective should be so gullible as to believe anything said by a child, simply because it was a child who spoke it ... especially a child who appears to have been coached by his mom. You have to test allegations for cracks & contradictions. This is especially the case when the 1978 mom was desperate to pay monthly rent, only to quickly accuse of molestation a priest who refused to get St. Vincent de Paul funds to pay the woman's monthly rent. And of course, the instant question that arises is this: Why couldn't the mom get State or Federal welfare dollars and a housing voucher?
There was also the Little Rascals Daycare case of Edenton North Carolina, during the 1980s. There was the Kern County case of 1982 and numerous other cases, too. The era was known as the Daycare Sex Abuse Hysteria Days. There ended up being false imprisonment and defamation lawsuits during that era which spanned from 1982 to the early 1990s.
The Great Farce of 1994/1995
Of all of these cases, the worst of the worst ... even worse than the Salem Witch Trials ... was the Wenatchee Washington case, in 1994 and 1995. It involved 29,726 criminal counts filed upon 43 adults, one of whom had an IQ of 58 and didn't know what she was signing. Another adult knew very little English and didn't know what he was signing.
Children were mercilessly prodded. Recantations of children who developed consciences were ignored. Even a social worker was indicted for "witness tampering," after he filed a child's recantation of the child's original story.
A Pentecostal pastor who dissented on TV was immediately placed under a search warrant. He was charged with operating a ritual abuse network in his own Pentecostal Church and charity food bank. A Sunday school teacher and the church van driver were also criminally indicted. In the end, the pastor received $850,000 in a defamation lawsuit settlement, in 1999. That was a lot of money, back then.
The bottom line is that a lot of money in legal fees and defamation lawsuit awards proved that, simply because a child says something, it isn't automatically true, simply because a child said so. The 1978 detective made an error, concerning his unsupported assessment of the 12 year old child involved in the Cipolla Case. Take note that the 12 year's averments (allegations) about 1977 never resulted in prosecution. This means that there was zero evidence to prove any of his allegations.
Randy Engel and her asinine hearing room venues
Then there was the matter of Engel stating that such and such a hearing was held at Police Station Number 7, 8, or 9, while another hearing was held at Police Station 1, 2, or 3 or whatever number. Police are NOT judges or magistrates. Moreover, every hearing held after the bail hearing is heard at THE COUNTY COURTHOUSE. There is a common American phrase which states, "And they took him to County." Every adult in America should know this already. Why did Randy Engel NOT know this?
As far as goes a bail hearing or an arraignment, such a thing is done before a magistrate ... and NOT a police sergent or captain. Now, the magistrate might have a hearing room in the same building where one finds a police office for detectives, but the magistrate is his/her own entity. The fact that Engel kept stating, "at Police Station Number This and Police Station Number That" is the give-away that she knew nothing about American legal procedure.
Incidentally, the writer of this discourse also authored legal briefs that were filed at the United States Supreme Court, as well as other legal writings filed elsewhere in the American legal system. This included Circuit Appeals Court and Administrative Law Judge venues. In fact, he furthermore has a humble amount of literature on a library shelf at Harvard, one at Northwestern Univ, and a few other colleges. As far as goes Randy Engel, she did NOT author legal briefs ... ever. She proved in that deadly 2016 Cipolla article that she had no idea what she was stating when it came to legal procedure.
The Eggshell Skull Rule: Aggravating a pre-existing condition
The 2016 Engel article traumatized Cipolla. Shortly afterward, he died of a heart attack. Engel aggravated a pre-existing condition. This is an element of the well-known Egg Shell Skull Rule (which see.) Concerning this, I'll simply state that the last time I ever spoke with Cipolla, he was utterly traumatized over that Engel article. You could hear it in his voice. He hung up on me that day, and he never did that previously. Shortly thereafter, he was dead.
None the less, there was one and only one allegation of fact in that specific article which made me suspicious of Cipolla, even though the absence of adult male body fluid made the case a closed case. Everything else in that writing was either outright bull crap or false-light exaggerations.
None the less, there is one additional feature of the entire Cipolla case ... not mentioned in the Engel article ... that still has me suspicious of him. Thus, there are two things in all ... actually three ... that still make him hesitant to overtly declare Cipolla innocent of the 1978 case. I'll mention two of them only after adding a detail to the 1978 accusing mother who did NOT accuse Cipolla of anything until he told her that the St. Vincent de Paul Society did NOT have the funds to pay for her monthly rent. The third one is a weak reason and not worth mentioning at this time.
Only after an absolute "no" in the St Vincent de Paul charity request, did Cipolla get accused
Stated again, for clarity purposes, being that the press reported the Cipolla Case in pea & shell game confusion, in its writers never getting to the point:
As one can see, the 1978 accuser of Cipolla allegedly magnetized herself to the Church for one alleged purpose; to get money. She allegedly figured that some foundation in the Church would pay her rent, out of charity. The irony to this is why did not the P.A. Dept of Welfare or a Federal HUD fund not pay her rent for her? Did she get suspended for fraud? Was she getting the much needed Food Stamps?
In as much, this whole case is bizarre. Why couldn't the accusing mother get a housing voucher in the Good Ole USA, during the liberal 1970s? Or is it that she already was on Welfare and simply didn't have enough money to go around? Why did she claim to need Catholic Church charity money, in this era of welfare checks and federal housing vouchers?
Incidentally, I did my share of HUD contract work, beautifying welfare housing. This included renewing dozens of welfare apartment bath tubs with a crew of six, making them look like new. As far as I see it, American construction crews did some really effective work for the Urban Redevelopment Authority and HUD. It was NOT a waste of taxpayer dollars. A very tangible product resulted from that type of work, time and time again.
BTW, I also did construction work on  mansions,  historic sites,  police stations & municipal buildings,  a state recreation park,  a county fair ground,  school grounds,  two new-construction, upper-middle class housing projects,  numerous middle class residential houses,  a number of houses in poor neighborhoods,  secured government grounds,  wide open & wooded private grounds which required heavy equipment work,  retail stores,  warehouses,  one fast food place during night hours only,  a large decommissioned church, and  a number of underground pipeline systems that required large excavator work.
The 900 mile long lie
While I was living in the Chicago area (from late 2016 to early 2019) --- 900 miles away from the ax-grinding hag --- she published posts claiming that I was stalking her. Well, she's not my type. In fact, women who repulse me --- who gross me out --- and compel me to run in the opposite direction --- are never my type.
And of course, the battle ax hag's location I will NOT mention, so that I won't get accused of doxing anyone. However, the 1978 accuser of Cipolla did dox me, by putting online a photo of my former dwelling, along with a map to that dwelling. The problem was that she didn't make anyone on Earth mad enough to want to kill me ... or at least brave enough to take me on ... or smart enough to find the place.
Needless to say, that particular doxing site of hers was deleted by the authorities. In fact, that hag constructed 9 sites dedicated to damning me personally ... and then an additional one later. Seven of them were simultaneously online and they were deleted simultaneously.
The fact that she lied about me so much would be an indication to you that she probably lied about Cipolla, too. That is simply a matter of statistical probability ... of assessing a person's actions by her/his habits ... such as the habit of lying.
The intrusive hag was afraid that I would prevent her middle-aged children from getting a handsome out-of-court settlement, even though she never filed a lawsuit against Anthony Cipolla in the first place. However, you can get a pre-lawsuit settlement, and getting such a settlement does NOT mean the admission of guilt on the part of the accused. Some false accusers get lawsuit settlements for strategic reasons, by the corporations being sued by them. Some corporations pay settlements, just to get rid of an annoying plaintiff. Some corporations do so for political points. This type of thing is already explained in the Wuerl Legacy Files.
The predictable theme of the endless defamation of me is this: The intrusive hag was allegedly so self-centered that she thought that the research work I did at my own expense was done "to get her," as if she were the center of society. No, I was trying to get Wuerl ... to be held accountable for his viciousness. I was trying to get Torquato ... to be held accountable, too.
I was trying to get back to life the things that Wuerl killed. This included what used to be called, Catholic Action, especially concerning the moral obligation to speak out against the practice of Sweatshop Labor Profiteering & Child Slave Labor which became America's pastime under Bill Clinton. Wuerl was the great hypocrite. He claimed to have done what he did, for the children. But, he kept his mouth shut when it came to speaking out against the widespread abuse of slave children.
And of course, due to America's incessant importation of Chinese sweatshop products, Communist China made outrageously large profits and was enabled to finance with American dollars the largest military navy on Planet Earth. Without the American consumer acting mindlessly & brain-dead during their Sunday shopping sprees, Communist China could not have done it. Way to go, American consumer.
All in all, Communist China used American dollars to point missiles at America. Wuerl could have come forth and spoken out against Atheistic China's profitable slave labor practices, as well as the widespread desecration of Sunday. But he ignored both issues. Even when women in D.C. asked Wuerl to make a command that DC Catholic school uniforms would not come from Chinese slave-labor sweatshops, Wuerl remained criminally silent.
The great lesson here is that, when you die, if you suddenly see Donald Wuerl at the realm where you find yourself, know that it will be a sign that you have gone to Hell ... directly to Hell.
This brings us to another question:
Being that Wuerl was proven to be a liar, by any chance did he bribe a Vatican official or blackmail a Vatican official, in order to have a favorable outcome in the Bendig case?
Ann Rodgers-Melnick; Wuerl's cheerleader
All of this character assassinating of me happened, only because I was willing to give Anthony Cipolla his chance to defend himself, instead of me joining the Ann Rodgers, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, lynch mob. I learned that, if you want to learn about someone, you don't ask third parties about the person ... and you don't refer to a newspaper like the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. You talk to the person, yourself. Of course, Mike Ference was the one who set up my initial meeting with Cipolla ... in the Summer of 2009. Cipolla brought a box of paperwork with him. And Mike sat-in, at the orientation meeting.
Not a Follower
For the record, I was never a follower or an admirer of Anthony Cipolla. But, I did "feel sorry" for the guy, all the while wondering if he did any part of what he was accused of having done. Then, it turned out that it was super easy to "pick-apart" ... debunk ... invalidate .. the majority of the details of the hyped-up horror story of him.
None the less, after all the research I did on this case, my verdict, as a figurative juror in the Court of Public Opinion, is this =======> There exists Reasonable Doubt. Without any doubt, this is the determination, concerning guilt or innocence ... with a heavy leaning toward innocent ... But, one just doesn't know for sure. However, Bendig and the 1978 accusing mother are notorious liars, from my own personal experience and from the material evidence acquired.
On the flipside of the debate comes the counterpoint:
On the other side of the debate, one of the two things which still makes me suspicious of Cipolla was and is =======> that stethoscope. Now, Cipolla was in a seminary where missionary priests were being trained, before he transferred to Pittsburgh's diocesan seminary. And of course, he said that he saved medical equipment for that missionary religious order. But, why did the police only find one stethoscope, if Cipolla were at least a mini-fund raiser for that religious order? Shouldn't there have been three or four stethoscopes there?
On the other hand, if Cipolla were a true molester, then why were there not other molestation tools found with that stethoscope? There should have been a brief case, a gym bag, or backpack full of molestation tools. But, there was the stethoscope sitting solo. Was that stethoscope a future charity donation? Or was it his tool to get close to one youth he should not have been touching, if he were doing any touching, in the first place?
If that were the case, then why were there not more accusers of Cipolla? After decades had passed, at least two or three more persons would have come forth and accused Cipolla, if Cipolla were a molester. That did not happen. Only two notorious liars came forth, one of whom ALLEGEDLY had her two sons on puppet strings, not unlike the gung-ho social worker in the infamous McMartin Case.
Do not be deceived, whether Cipolla were guilty or innocent of the accusations, Randy Engel killed him, via the aggravation of a pre-existing condition. This involves the Eggshell Skull Rule. I personally believe that she should have been 'brought-up' on manslaughter charges ... literally. Remember, I personally heard Cipolla's voice after that damning article was published. It was Grief City, and as I previously stated, Cipolla never hung-up on me before. I then received the news of his death from someone who admired him.
In re: the Exam Thing
Furthermore, Cipolla said that he never told the young nine year old boy that he (Cipolla) had to perform a medical exam on the lad, for first communion eligibility. Instead, Cipolla said that he had to give the youth a scholastic exam ... an academic oral examination ... to see if the lad understood the doctrine of transubstantiation and other doctrines pertaining to Holy Communion. Was Cipolla lying or telling the truth? His adversary, namely the 1978 accusing mother, was proven to be a repeated liar, time after time. So, who is the truth teller, in this instance?
And yes, I already made note of the time when Cipolla tried to get a "home schooling" teaching position from a New Jersey woman. Well, the question is this: If Cipolla were a molester, then why did he stop trying to find any kind of work once he found a person willing to pay his monthly rent ... for the rest of his life? Cipolla would have continued looking for home schooling work, in hunting down youths, and in trying to find a way to get in close contact with them, if he were a molester. He would have applied for job after job after job.
My complaint of Cipolla is that he was too proud to do common man's work. Then, when his heart condition became serious, he was granted Social Security Disability Compensation. He couldn't work full time anymore.
BTW, whereas Cipolla prayed the Mass everyday, Marcial Maciel was known to repeatedly skip mass. Thus, the time Maciel spent in molesting, Cipolla spent in praying ... the Mass.
Being that the Cipolla case never went to trial, there is nothing but unanswered questions attached to it. Whatever be the case, the 1978 accusing mother turned out to be humongous liar. In fact, Attorney John Conte literally called her, "an adroit liar."
Tim Bendig turned out to be an ALLEGED con artist. I detailed the lies and alleged con artistry already, including the Levitske Brothers involvement in taking Bendig's settlement money from Bendig, in return for a bar and grill establishment.
The Pittsburgh Post Gazette hid from the public this decisive fact ... the fact that Bendig took his settlement money and purchased a bar & grill with it. The Post Gazette was an accomplice to Bendig's proven lies, in hiding his deceit.
In addition, Bendig started a molestation victim support group and quickly gave-up on that enterprise, giving it to a certain woman who was seduced by a priest. That is another sign of sheer deceit, on the part of Bendig.
Back to the first side of the debate:
The other suspicious thing about the accuser family is that the two sons of the 1978 case never came forth to talk to me. If they were molested, then they would have been vehemently outraged at me, due to what I stated about their mother. They would have demanded to talk to me . . . or to dialogue with me in writing, defending their mother's credibility. They never sought to contact me, to talk things out and to clear things up. That made them super-suspicious.
They could have at least gotten an attorney to talk to me. No such attorney ever contacted me in any capacity. Their silence has continued, even five years after the 2018 Grand Jury Inquest Report. They never vented outrage toward me, in all this time. That is super suspicious. All in all, this had been one case when you end up being suspicious of everybody. This included Randy Engel, Ann Rodgers, and definitely Donald Wuerl.
Take note that Wuerl decided to make allies out of those who are ... let us politely say . . . NOT private academy grads from country club families who were inducted into honors societies for having had the discipline to study their school assignments in detail and to stay away from trouble. The phrases formerly used to describe such folk allied to Wuerl were  "white trash" and  "low-lifes." This is ironic for a Wuerl obsessed with glamor and arrogant "high society" class ranking, in the spirit of Marie Antoinette.
By the way, I did meet followers of Cipolla, and they "swore by the guy." Some called him "such a wonderful man." And of course, a number of Cipolla's followers were scheduled to give testimony, for the civil lawsuit trial which never transpired. So too was a nephew of Cipolla scheduled to testify. He resented Anthony Cipolla, himself. I can go into detail about this, being that Anthony Cipolla revealed a lot about that issue to me. But, I will follow the code of confidentiality and move on from here. If that nephew decides to bother me once again, I'll let you know why there was animosity between him and his uncle. For now, I would rather move on. After all, you might have noticed that either a few major civil wars or WWIII are/is on the horizon.
In review, Wuerl cost Cipolla $25,000 in legal fees, in terms of 1990s' dollars. He needed to tell Cipolla that he (Wuerl) was going to settle out of court and that Cipolla need not have hired John Conte. Wuerl has a habit of costing people what people can't afford. Donald Wuerl has had everything given to him, including his pillow mints. He had no concept of the sufferings of the common man/woman.
The Reason Why ... I had to come forward, to my guaranteed peril
It was simply that there were so many falsehoods & sleight-of-hand deceptions involved in the news articles about Cipolla ... and about a certain Allegheny County district attorney ... that I had the moral obligation to come forth. To not have done so would have been a sin of negligence, making me having to answer for that sin in Hell, eventually. Yet, coming forth guaranteed that my life was once again going to turn into a Living Hell. And it most certainly did.
To be a whistleblower is to be an instant target. The attacks against you are guaranteed to come. I learned this during the Torquato Retaliations. That is another Living Hell Phase of my life ... and of course, it deals with the managerial techniques of none other than the Peter Pan look-alike, Donald William Wuerl. Donald Wuerl coming into power was a punishment for your sins.
I first came forth in 1998, sounding the alarm that Wuerl was severely & viciously corrupt. I was twenty years ahead of everyone else. Needless to say, I was kept silent by the Pittsburgh media, and I know that there were three specific media figures who knew about me and my Wuerlgate Files, but who ignored me.
In contrast, you can tell by the pageview meter of this 5th edition site that a subset of the Public did not ignore me. None the less, the Pittsburgh media made sure that as many subsets of the Public as possible would never know that I existed ... along with the Wuerl Legacy Files. This makes those media people accomplices which enabled Bendig to go out there and allegedly harm other people with his alleged deceit & con artistry. Way to go, Pittsburgh Media. Tim Bendig couldn't have allegedly done it without you.
