it’s notoriously hard to prove consent in rape cases. something like 5% of criminal proceedings ever end up in a conviction. the girls were trafficked and part of a prostitution ring, certainly; but, in the cases of those of legal age, they were all taking payment and all working. obviously that’s unforgivable in the case of minors and young girls who have no way to give informed consent, and obviously it’s deeply creepy and weird. but to say someone who pays a 17 year old for sex is ‘raping’ her is not quite the same thing.
epstein was running a pedo ring and everyone involved is shady as fuck. the story should ruin a lot of big public figures’ lives. but someone of legal age being paid for sex is not a cut and dry rape case.
i hope everyone who was trafficked against their will, abused, passed around for sex, etc gets justice and a big slice of his estate money at the very least. i hope the underage girls who got messed with get a vip ticket to take a shit on that guy in hell. but lots of escorts hang around with rich people and celebrities, too.
