Why not draw parallels between Ratso & Sharon Shoesmith, as well as Harry Taylor? In the "Baby Peter" case, Shoesmith & her dept. were 'only' negligent; they'd involved the police (at least that's what I remember) but just hadn't taken the next, crucial, step in taking the child away from the abusive parent(s). Shoesmith lost her job & people were pretty unsympathetic to the social workers involved, yet they didn't act like the RCC hierarchy - covering up the abuse & moving criminals between jurisdictions, or harbouring criminals in the big safe-house called the vatican.
