“He used his position, money and power to lure young women into situations where he was able to violate them sexually.”
Power has been misused by the white man for too long. My question to the people is: WHY did it take 80 women coming forth before something was done? Women need to be heard and supported. It’s a crime against all people when women are not protected from men like this.
I met Harvey Weinstein once when I was living in Santa Fe, New Mexico and his vibe is one of a predator. How can he get as little as 5 years in prison? If we are giving him a break, then why don’t we simply say: 1 year in prison for each woman he abused. The thought he could get out in 5 years isn’t justice. Women should be the judge of what his penalty is because the white man has made policies and rules that protect the white man.
Believe me I know, I was robbed by my financial planner along with 13 other people, after giving him my entire life savings, and there was no way to get my money back because he had gambled it in high yield stocks, falsified statements and had left his company with their letterhead so there wasn’t even insurance to cover his fraud. But there were loop holes for the white collar criminal who served a short sentence and was back out in no time.
It’s time the patriarch move aside and let women take part in writing laws that protect ALL people, not just the white man who gets a slap on the wrist when he steals, rapes and cheats. That is now the past. We need justice for all.
