Where was everyone? Jeffrey Epstein manipulated and abused young girls for years. Maybe the number is in the hundreds. These girls were lured by the cash and high life. Some I heard at the beginning got $300 for giving Epstein just a massage. He knew they were underage but continued.
It bothers me that I have heard of no parent coming forward talking about how they were aware of this predator at the time. How did they not know their daughters were getting this extra cash? Were they so derelict to be unaware of the dangers? Did they have stars in their eyes because he was a rich man?
Bad people survive and continue to hurt people when good people are silent. Unfortunately, silence is a form of consent. I understand how people don’t want to get involved. There is cost. It is gut wrenching to see an interview of a girl who has to deal with her guilt knowing that her silence allowed the “fifty shades of black” to continue.
