More bad news for Coakley

Gerald Amirault was on WEEI radio’s ‘Dennis and Callaghan’ show today, discussing the shameful role of Martha Coakley in the prosecution of a false child molestation case. Audio here.

The hosts talked about how the entire Fells Acres trail was a truly shameful episode in local history. Amirault himself recounted all the years he spent in “protective custody” i.e. solitary confinement, because of concerns that as a convicted child molester he would not be safe in the general population. When he finally did go into the general population, the reaction of the other inmates was be cool man, we know you aren’t guilty. Amirault also talked about Martha Coakley being unable to admit her office had wrongfully convicted him despite the fact they changed all the procedures on collecting and presenting evidence in molestation investigations long before his commutation hearing in 2001.

He comes across as a really nice guy with no real bitterness or anger. That makes the interview an even more devastating indictment of the miscarriage of justice that happened in Coakley’s office and her moves to prevent the commutation of his sentence.

It also struck me that WEEI is a sports station, not a news outlet. In fact, according to Wikipedia it is one of the top rated sports talk radio stations in the nation.

Coakley: Catholics Shouldn’t Work in the Emergency Room
— by Gabriel Malor

I repeat: what the HELL is going on in this woman’s head?

This was on WBSM 1420AM in New Bedford. Audio is here. This part is at 9:30ish:

Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin, ah, you don’t want to do that.

Martha Coakley: No, we have a separation of church and state Ken, let’s be clear.

Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.

Martha Coakley: (…stammering) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.

She knows that there are Catholics in Massachusetts, right? And other religious folks? And folks who may not be religious, but respect those that are? Eeesh.

Massachusetts is the second-most Catholic state. As of 2007 (latest year I could find data (DOC)) Massachusetts had eight Catholic hospitals, sixteen Catholic nursing facilities, and nineteen Catholic-sponsored organizations including hospice, home health, assisted living, and senior housing.

Coakley is an idiot.
