Dershowitz supposedly being a civil libertarian and then destroying a guy's academic career because the guy publicly embarrassed him always flew under the radar so I'm the glad the podcast ALAB recently revived the story.

I wonder how many people are unaware of what Roman Polanski actually did because it's much worse than "had sex with a 13 year old" which is already something that makes you a monster of the highest order. I don't blame the judge for planning to throw out the plea bargain - Polanski deserved the fifty years the judge wanted to give him.

The whole argument from Allen people about "there was no toy train!/it was a different kind of toy train!" is so insane. Like, they think that suddenly means it's impossible for him to have sexually assaulted a child or something.

One of the defenses of Jackson after Leaving Neverland aired was one of the assaults couldn't have happened when/as the victim described since the train and station hadn't been built on the ranch yet (the assault occurred on the upper story of the train station). As if that means everything else didn't happen.

These same men would 100% freak out if someone they were not attracted to started talking about their rear end.

I had a coworker saying it was weird how women get so upset when they're at the club and a guy dances with them because he wouldn't mind if a woman did the same to him. Since he'd sleep with any women no matter how attractive/unattractive I couldn't go that route so the only way I could get through to him was saying "now imagine it's a guy twice your size [he's a small dude] grinding up behind you". These guys would all be having meltdowns if other guys were saying "cute rear end" or "I want your dick" in their instagram comments/DMs 24/7.

Isn't he the nerd who married way out of his league but wanted to have an open relationship once he became famous?

People are allowed to be in open relationships and poly no matter how they look.

That said, that's not really the issue with Middleditch. He basically told her after they already were married that he wanted an open relationship.

That's why I said "once he became famous" since there's no way he would've tried pulling it otherwise.

Oh, that might be it. I’ve watched the hell out of both shows.

No you remembered right. There was an SVU where a female principal was raping a boy in her school and it turned out she had a tumor and removing it got rid of the urges. There's a bit of a "twist" where they think it didn't take because she goes after the boy again but it's tell him she's pregnant.

Wikipedia at least seems to indicate that the 'trading' he did was pretty early on until like 83 or something. After that it's largely 'consulting' and such, intentionally vague.

A big part of the problem is he claimed he only allowed people of a certain net worth into that fund and back then there were only a handful of people that rich. And like Mr. Apollo said nobody had ever heard of him and for him to get as rich as he did that would've been impossible.

SomethingAwful's always been the guy at the bar pontificating about how the world really works, just with CIA Ops instead of the Cowboys having a lovely season and podcasts instead of talk radio. Obviously Epstein's a CIA asset, how else do rich people share favors with people they like, unless, of course, it's the Jews Mossad running the whole thing. You can say whatever the gently caress you want so long as it's full of unearned confidence and the other guys at the bar back you up.

Remember when this thread was convinced Ronan Farrow was about to end Biden's campaign because a NYT's writer wrote a pissy piece about how Farrow's sloppy? Literally the only reason they'd do that is to protect their liberal darling! And then... turns out, nope, there was no grand conspiracy, but by then the bar had moved on to the latest celebrity gossip to pontificate on.

Shoulda stayed in the drafts.

The charges are related to an alleged interaction between him and a 15-year-old child at a Cleveland nightclub in Dec. 2017. The case was filed against the actor in 2018 in Canada, and was later brought to the Cleveland Division of Police. Following an investigation, it was discovered by authorities that Bell had an established relationship with the child for “several years” prior to the alleged interaction, which was supposedly at times sexual in nature.

This is one of those situations that is so transparently hosed up and evil that I feel like there must be some huge piece of the puzzle that I am not getting because it can’t possibly be this blatantly insane, forced by a judge to not have babies because your father has enslaved you to do shows in Vegas five nights a week or you lose the ability to see your kids? What? How?

After following Steve Donzinger's case nothing about how our court system works can shock me anymore.

What's happening to Spears reminds me of the people that gently caress over old people through legal guardianship. I wanna say the second season of Dirty Money on Netflix had an episode on it but they'll steal elderly people's homes and sell them and poo poo. Real hosed up.

Wait, what?

Clarke's knighting was canceled because of reports of him being an abuser of children.

quote:

I grew up in Sri Lanka. My dad was doing some work for the Canadian government. There were a lot of expat kids in my area and we had free reign of the neighbourhood. Our parents mostly let us do what we wanted, but we were told to stay away—never go near—a large property that bordered my house. When we asked why the reasons were always vague.

There were some rumors that someone very famous or maybe powerful lived there. We all got the sense that he was...a danger in some way. One day I was home sick from school. My grandfather was visiting from Canada and he was assigned to watch me. I remember that I was in pajamas. We were in the backyard and my grandfather was painting peacocks. Out of our hedges this man appeared and approached us. I instantly knew it was the man from the property. The man from the property wanted something from my dad, who of course wasn't home. My grandfather was star struck by the man. Grandpa could barely speak. The two began chatting. The man flattered my grandfather's painting. He said he also liked to paint but only people. The man looked towards me and said let's paint the boy.

I was placed on a stool in front of the two men. I was eleven years old. Very quickly the neighbour said the clothes were spoiling the beauty of me. He asked me to remove my clothes. I looked at my grandpa and did as I was told. Soon after I was on the stool, naked, and crying. I don't know how long this went on but at some point my father arrived home. He quickly reviewed the scene, saw the man from the property, and...went...nuts. He just lost it on them: raising his voice. Getting in people's faces. I honestly thought he might kill them both.

Within a couple of hours my grandfather was gone and they never - ever - spoke again. Although in some circles it was common knowledge, the man from the property was a famous British science fiction novelist. Apparently he had been banished to (then) Ceylon from postwar Britain rather than face prison for being a pederast. I think about that day sometimes. My father didn't have a temper and rarely ever even raised his voice but the man he became in that moment while essentially unrecognizable. While we've had our ups and downs from that moment forward I never questioned his love for me again. Ever. I knew he'd kill for me. I learned how important it is to protect your family and those more vulnerable than you.
