“Also, going to the police right away isn’t always that easy. It can be extremely traumatic to even be able to open up about it. This is common knowledge for all kinds of abuse that this shouldn’t even be in question here”
Please, quit this BS! This IS the question! You got robbed — you go to police. You got your ass touched — go to police (I know it’s stupid but apparently this is normal in nowadays America to go to police when someone touched your ass!)
“And sometimes it’s simply the act of speaking up that would destroy a career unfortunately. So they may not have gained anything but are simply being blackmailed.”
