Posted on 12/05/2011 11:50:10 AM PST by Berlin_Freeper
If a spate of recent allegations proves true, Hollywood may have a hideous epidemic on its hands. The past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged child sexual abuse in the entertainment industry.
Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors, was charged in Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with sexually abusing a former client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old during the time of the alleged abuse, reported to authorities that Weiss told him "what they were doing was common practice in the entertainment industry." Weiss has pleaded not guilty.
On Nov. 21, Fernando Rivas, 59, an award-winning composer for Sesame Street, was arraigned on charges of coercing a child to engage in sexually explicit conduct in South Carolina. The Juilliard-trained composer was also charged with production and distribution of child pornography.
Registered sex offender Jason James Murphy, 35, worked as a casting agent in Hollywood for years before his past kidnapping and sexual abuse of a boy was revealed by the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 17. Murphys credits include placing young actors in kid-friendly fare like "Bad News Bears," "The School of Rock," "Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and the forthcoming "Three Stooges.

WOW! Who knew. I thought this behavior was only indigenous to State College PA.
Oh please, these are gifted brilliant artists. You know damn well that is different. /s
Anyone see HUGO? OMG what a disgusting display of narcissism.
Anywhere you find homosexuals congregating, it’s to hide their most liberated members.
Was it rape rape, or was it just rape?
I think the child actors are often violated without even being touched. Like Dakota Fanning acting as though she were being raped in a movie a couple of years ago, or kids like the one in 2 1/2 Men being spoken to and spoken around with all the gutter sexual talk.
These “actors” are real children and it should be a crime to use them in such a way.
"I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That's the biggest problem for children in this industry. ... It's the big secret," Feldman said.
Obviously this lets other organizations who have historically swept abuse under the carpet completely off the hook.

Think of all those Democratic party contributors wishing for soap on a roap, oh the joy of Karma.
Read this book for more detailed information based on just one well documented investigation.
Shirley Temple experienced it. It’s been going on forever.
The Penn State was a warm-up IMO. I think there's a bigger one coming and it will involve one or more famous actors. This story is not it; it will likely involve a maga-star.
I don't like it to happen, but something's got to give to remove power from these people.
No way will kids not be used with all the BS in Hollywood. SitComs will always abuse the kids.

No but it sure does make them far from an anomaly. And the problem is not that there are other organizations, but rather when one group is singled out.
In a bit of irony the “elite” have been trying to norm sodomy which will have the affect of taking the stigma away from the accusers. So if you are now a gay adult man you can make all the accusations you want of any old pervert you had contact with back in days of youth.
“Another child star from an earlier era agrees that Hollywood has long had a problem with pedophilia. When I watched that interview, a whole series of names and faces from my history went zooming through my head, Paul Peterson, 66, star of The Donna Reed Show, a sitcom popular in the 1950s and 60s, and president of A Minor Consideration, tells FOXNews.com. Some of these people, who I know very well, are still in the game.
Well, now we know why Hollywood has raced as fast as it can towards the destruction of the family, the sexualization of young children, and the total removal of sexual mores. It’s to provide fodder for the deviates in this industry.
There is always an agenda behind this stuff.
Sunshine only burns when there is a lack of transparency. Full and complete openness is the solution.
