Phil Saviano: You guys gotta understand. This is big. This is not just Boston. It's the whole country. It's the whole world. And it goes right up to the Vatican.
The statistics of 6% is higher than but no less appalling than the 4% estimate in a 2004 report by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, commissioned by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, based on surveys completed by the Roman Catholic dioceses in the United States:
Richard (Over the phone:) No, not really, Robby. Sounds low to me. My estimates suggest six percent act out sexually with minors.
Robby: Uh, six percent of what?
Richard: Six percent of all Priests.
Robby: How many Priests do we have in Boston?
Mike: About 1,500. One percent is 15. Six percent is... 90.
Robby: Wait. Nine ... ninety Priests? Is that possible?
Richard: From a metric standpoint, yes. That would certainly be in line with my findings
Tons of memorable quotes at IMDb:
Marty Baron: Sometimes it's easy to forget that we spend most of our time stumbling around the dark. Suddenly, a light gets turned on and there's a fair share of blame to go around. I can't speak to what happened before I arrived, but all of you have done some very good reporting here. Reporting that I believe is going to have an immediate and considerable impact on our readers. For me, this kind of story is why we do this.
Mitchell Garabedian: If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse one.
