Number one -- appease his post at foxnews.com.
The question is is child -- child sex abuse Hollywood's big secret.
And the past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged childhood sexual abuse.
In the entertainment industry which of course would be vindication for Corey Feldman you know he's the four year old that famous actor.
Who has been saying all along that it is that we get secret buried Hollywood didn't need Corey says that it has it led to the death of his.
Former friend and co star Corey came.
The other Korea as he's known because.
Apparently did did according to this report foxnews.com it's very.
Fascinating could be quite disturbing actually as well.
But these guys were.
Kind of as the article says they were quote unquote passed around so since you're there in DC -- start with you.
First of a hobby you put a stop to this.
Well you know California's pretty strict mandatory reporting laws and they can be found in penal code section 11165.
Point three and it lists all of these various folks.
Teachers firefighters EMS that senator who.
May -- must report suspected child abuse if they've seen and I looked -- section eight of that.
And it says an administrator employee of the public or private organization whose duties require direct contact his supervision of children and if you read the Fox News -- -- article.
Folks will see that a lot of these incidents were.
Had to happen where other people knew about it so one question I have to the panel is here to.
Is it possible we think other folks -- knew about and just let this happen I suspect.
This is there's no big -- study out there yet but -- and I'm aware of that there's more child abuse and Hollywood than anywhere else.
I I suspect that there is at least as much as anywhere -- So that's the really different.
Disgusting part about this.
These kids are seen as a gravy train.
And a lot of people who's going to be the one to blow the whistle because.
Big of blackmail them if they blow the whistle -- out of the industry.
So that's it's really disgusting so it doesn't matter would section eight or whatever the penal code says -- and then it.
Right they they haven't incentive obviously to further their career and and people take advantage of them to do that okay but how do you put a stop to this I don't think there's anything unique about Hollywood.
The issue here is that -- -- children unsupervised.
Am not and you had this scenario where people are benefiting as -- eight.
About fifty plus education.
You have to sort of a conflict of interest which you pointed out already I don't know that there's something.
Particularly corrupt about Hollywood it's just you happen he sort of scenario where you have children unsupervised.
That have the ability to.
-- put money in people's pockets.
And you have powerful people people.
Who have the ability to impact the lives of other people seeing -- this sort of perfect storm.
Where abuse can happen right but that's my point Jason that you do have all these powerful people -- -- -- that -- a perfect storm that -- talking about.
But is it criminal prosecutor formally how do you how do you prosecute -- it -- -- stop somewhere.
It doesn't you really have to look to the the -- in the family of course we're putting these children sort of out there and really in essence turning them over in unsupervised capacity.
Two adults who might be taking advantage of that.
It seems to me that so many parents -- is no way -- living vicariously through their children and and sometimes you wonder what the -- are the parents when they young child actors.
-- they really -- they really have the best interest of the child and hand and I think really in education program.
For the parents.
To say hey you need to provide your children -- you can't just turn him over and say bye bye yeah.
