"The police were not called. Even when there was an eyewitness to the abuse," attorney Ken Roosa tells FRONTLINE in "The Silence," airing April 19. FRONTLINE examines a little-known chapter of the Catholic Church sex abuse story -- decades of abuse of Native Americans by priests and other church workers in Alaska.
