The reasons for cover-ups of most sexual assaults and rapes by Cuomo and his top officials are the same as why the Catholic Church tried to hide their crimes

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2017 — The Boston Globe uncovered the fact that the cover-ups of sex crimes by pedophile priests went way up the chain of command https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56jw6tasomc . It is very similar, but without question, that within New York State’s mental health care system, the cover-ups goes directly to the top, to Governor Andrew Cuomo. The two main reasons for the massive cover-ups of sexual assaults and rapes of thousands of people with disabilities, like the rapes of boys and girls within the Catholic Church, is money and public shame that could hurt the institution and of course the big players involved.
New York State wants everyone to believe it is the Empire State and a wonderful place to come a visit as a tourist; it does not want to be known for its rampant sexual abuse of the most vulnerable and the protection of thousands of sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists. Instead of doing what was right and needed following the Willowbrook State Institution Exposé in the early 70’s – New York State officials tried ride out the public storm without making vital changes. At the time many distinct decisions were made to try to continue to hide the horrific care that New York State has been providing for people with disabilities and mental health problems, the same is happening now. Most of the same massive problems that lead to astronomical numbers of sexual assaults, rapes, and physical assaults as well as gross negligence of care cases, injuries and deaths continue to date. For over ten years Governor Andrew Cuomo, first as the New York State Attorney General and then Governor, with full knowledge of these criminal activities, chose to look the other way. Governor Cuomo must be exposed for his long term involvement in the most heinous criminal conspiracy to protect these sexual predators in New York State’s history.

The results of our current Governor’s actions and inactions surrounding the cover-ups of most of these horrific and heinous crimes is tens of thousands of damaged lives and a system rampant with sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists. It is this simple everyone and the truth must be told. These two stories of New York State employees are only a tip of the iceberg of what is going on behind closed doors in the dark in these unsafe facilities and group homes scattered throughout most communities.
Remember these words spoken from a convicted pedophile of Governor Cuomo’s system calling it “a predators dream.”
The pedophile and former New York State employed caregiver that was eventually caught in a federal porn sting, called New York’s system controlled by Governor Andrew Cuomo “a predator’s dream”
Here is the direct quote from this AP News story written by David Klepper;
“New York State is paying $3 million to the family of developmentally disabled boy repeatedly molested by a staffer at a state-run group home who later wrote that lax supervision at the facility made it “a predator's dream.”
In March of 2011, the year that Governor Cuomo became governor, is when the first piece of a massive series of investigative reports done by the New York Times came out regarding New York’s extremely dangerous and deadly system http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/nyregion/13homes.html . Michael Carey, the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation was able to convince the Times to do this massive award winning series which became a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/nyregion/abused-and-used-series-page.html . The person mentioned in the first piece regarding sexual abuse, is Rick Sousie, this is what is quoted in the Times;
“Five years ago, Mr. Sousie, then 47, was working at the home in Hudson Falls, about 50 miles north of Albany. After a co-worker saw him alone and standing between the legs of the severely disabled woman, who was lying on her back, the police were alerted. The victim was taken to the hospital, where a rape kit was administered, and Mr. Sousie was placed on administrative leave.”
Some paragraphs later, his disturbing defense claim, “Mr. Sousie, in an interview, denied that he had been involved in a sexual assault.”
“I was tucking in my shirt, and I got accused of raping a client, that’s what happened,“ he said. When it was pointed out that his lawyer had, as a defense, argued that Mr. Sousie had been masturbating — hence the presence of physical evidence — he conceded, “That’s the defense that we used, yes,” but declined to elaborate.
When New York State protects people like this, which they do all of the time, sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists can literally do whatever they want, with whoever they want, whenever they want. The New York State mental health system that Governor Cuomo is in charge of is out of control, it is a sexual abuse animal house, wild with sexual predators. Absolutely nothing significant has been done, or is in the works to be done by Governor Cuomo, to stop these sexual assaults and rapes, these horrors and atrocities are occurring unchecked. Practically every imaginable safety and abuse prevention measure you could think of is non-existent and not in place to protect this vulnerable population. These specific groups of people, that simply have one or more disabilities, are being treated as less than animals, the cover-ups of sex crimes committed against them is standard operating procedure.
There are distinct reasons why Governor Cuomo has looked the other way and why he continues to cover-up most rapes within his system; they surround public exposure and shame, massive amounts of money, billions of dollars, as well as power and control. These are the same reasons why the Catholic Church hierarchy did the evil they did. When you do not have sufficient vetting of staff, insufficient staffing levels, lack of surveillance cameras and an entirely internal structure of reporting sex crimes, and all crimes, that bypasses the 911 call systems and normal criminal justice system, sexual predators can literally do anything they want and they do.
Here are numerous reputable news links regarding sexual crimes and cover-ups occurring throughout New York State right now under Governor Cuomo’s watch;
Governor Cuomo has ignored all of Michael Carey’s calls for actions to stop these crimes and the New York Times Editorial Boards call for repentance. Over four years ago, The New York Times Editorial Board blasted Cuomo for doing nothing to stop these horrors as documented. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/10/opinion/protecting-the-most-vulnerable.html;
“Two-and-a-half years ago, The Times reported horrifying abuse of people with developmental disabilities or mental illnesses by state employees, who were rarely punished for it. Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised action. But too little appears to have changed.”
“There is much the governor could do. He could require surveillance cameras in these facilities, just as prisons have them. He could make sure that the police get more involved.”
The Editorial Board made these public statements because Governor Cuomo took no significant actions to stop the wide-scale abuse and cover-ups. Governor Cuomo ignored the massive New York Times “Abused and Used” investigative reporting series which was a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/09/nyregion/state-lagging-on-dismissals-in-abuse-cases.html .
“Governor Cuomo knows about these atrocities, he has protected most of the criminals involved and he has taken no significant actions to stop or prevent any of these sex crimes or criminal cover-ups.”

Please read this extremely important press release with attached links titled, “Cuomo Must Resign and Held Accountable for Protecting Sexual Predators, Pedophiles & Rapists”
New York State documents obtained through FOIL dating back to 2005 reveal that the New York State OMRDD/OPWDD system has a culture of sexual abuse, rape and cover-ups. Thousands of reported sex crimes committed against the disabled are never reported to local police or District Attorney’s and are disappearing within the system that former Attorney General Cuomo and now Governor Cuomo has protected with a vengeance http://www.einpresswire.com/article/414428414/cuomo-has-been-protecting-sexual-predators-for-over-a-decade?n=2 . State data, as well as this well known study found on the State of Massachusetts website titled, Prevalence of Violence, http://www.mass.gov/dppc/abuse-recognize/prevalence-of-violence.html point to possibly one third of developmentally disabled residents within Governor Cuomo’s OPWDD system are being sexually assaulted annually. In a system of 126,000 developmentally disabled children and adults, many of whom cannot speak to tell anyone anything, there are upwards of 43,000 victims every year. Try to wrap your mind around the scope of what I am bringing to your attention.
Governor Cuomo has been getting away with his sex scandal cover-up scheme by directing mandated reporters to report these sex crimes to his own agency instead of 911, so local police cannot respond. These practices are outrageous, they are illegal and they expose a matter of discrimination in civil rights similar to what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought against.
No longer can 911 call systems, local police and local courts be bypassed. 911 call systems must be immediately called by all mandated reporters regarding all sexual assaults and rapes, as well as obviously all other assault crimes, medical emergencies and deaths. Currently, under Governor Cuomo’s directive, almost all sex assault and rapes of people with disabilities which are obviously crimes, disappear internally, they are covered-up. This evil and these gross injustices must be stopped and the people involved in the greater crimes and criminal conspiracy to protecting sexual predators, pedophiles and rapists must be held accountable.
