So it finally happened: Harvey Weinstein was arrested.
What's outrageous is that it took so long, that he was allowed to "surrender" to police instead of the cops breaking down his door, tackling him to the ground, slapping him with cuffs, and throwing him in a police car. If he'd been, oh, you know, black, poor, or a regular person, that's what would've happened. Show's how power and money still rule even when in disgrace -- and jail.
That said, seeing Weinstein in cuffs certainly is something that many people never imagined would happen. Let's hope that his victims, and all victims of sexual abuse, feel a little bit more peace today.
What's ironic is that, at the same time Weinstein is facing justice, one of Mia Farrow's children, Moses, is coming forward to strongly dispute the charges against Woody Allen.
Moses writes a long, thorough explanation of how the crime Woody is accused of couldn't have happened, how he and his siblings were abused by Mia, and how he feels that Woody is being unfairly lumped in with obvious monsters like Weinstein. It's a powerful piece -- and, strangely, it's led to Moses getting attacked in just the same manner that many people who speak up about sexual abuse are attacked. Moses is stating that he and his siblings were abused -- and he's being told that he's a liar, that it didn't happen, etc.
This is sad.
ALL abuse claims must be taken seriously and investigated (like Woody was, and he was cleared), and the truth must come out and be accepted. To call anyone a liar is wrong -- until we know the truth.
