The insane run the asylum, the criminals enforce the laws

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, when it’s good, is very good. What a treasure trove of reality sandwiches!

We’ve got a crop of “family values” politicians and preachers who turn out to be pious frauds, priests and pastors using their church position to prey on the innocent, school principals who enforce, on their students, anti-drug laws but who indulge in a bit of drug use themselves...What the hell? Henry Miller was right: this is the “air conditioned night-mare.”


Psychologist arrested in voyeurism case

Suspected of filming patients

A prominent Seattle psychologist, frequently used as an expert to evaluate child sex abuse cases, has been accused of installing a video camera in the bathroom at his office and secretly recording women using the facilities.

The 59-year-old man, a clinical affiliate professor at the University of Washington who also worked for a decade with the Seattle Archdiocese on abuse cases involving priests, was arrested July 3 for investigation of voyeurism and booked into the King County Jail. He was released two days later. No charges have been filed.
Nationally recognized as an expert in pediatric psychology, the therapist long has been known to regulators at the health department for a series of eight complaints reaching back to the early 1990s.

Though none has resulted in any disciplinary action, three of the allegations were resolved through a 1995 court proceeding in Thurston County, which has been sealed.
Kelley declined to elaborate on the nature of the prior complaints but noted that two now under investigation were filed after the therapist's arrest last week.
