People With Too Much Power

I am disgusted by this episode of 48 hours regarding the murder of Irene Garza and the suspect, John Feit.
48 Hours The Last Confession
After the murder, Feit was sent away by the catholic church because they knew he was dangerous.  Father O'Brien even told police that Feit had made an admission of guilt.
He attacked another woman 24 days earlier, pleaded no contest and was fined $500, with no prison time.
Instead of being charged with murder, he was sent away for "rehabilitation" at a series of monasteries in Texas, Iowa, Missouri, and New Mexico.
One of the places he was sent, was Assumption Abbey, a place i have been to on a silent retreat.
It was at the Ava monastery that he discussed the murder to another monk, Dale Tacheny, who kept it a secret for a long time.
A month before Feit went to Missouri, he attacked a woman as she got in her car outside New Melleray Abbey in Iowa.

2 of the only locations available for bishops to permanently send dangerous priests are in the St. Louis area. Instead of jail time, they remain priests and live in relative luxury, which is paid for by the catholic church.
