As expected, Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to the New York Police Department at the First Precinct in Tribeca this morning to be arrested and face criminal charges stemming from multiple sexual assault allegations. Facing potentially years behind bars, sources say Weinstein is likely looking at first degree and third degree rape charges and a first degree criminal sexual act charge from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

About damn time. Hopefully this news will serve as some form of comfort for his victims, in spite of how criminally overdue it is. Karma’s a bitch, it just took a long ass time to catch up with the pig monster.May 25, 2018 at 5:50 am #1202553662
Wise choice from Weinstein. Now his case will finally be treated in the right places (see: at a court), as it should have always been.May 25, 2018 at 6:11 am #1202553672
UPDATE: Fox News has reported that Weinstein faces up to 50 years in prison with just the initial charges he faces.
Yeah. With all the other charges that are likely soon to follow, he’s more than likely never seeing the light of day again.May 25, 2018 at 8:14 am #1202553746
If people are saying “good”, you’re being too fair.
You should be saying “finally”. Because this shit should have happened months ago.May 25, 2018 at 8:42 am #1202553757

I recall that there were THREE previous occasions where the media was crying “arrest coming, arrest imminent.” And it didn’t happen. The cops were either too incompetent or too corrupt. It’s been seven months.May 25, 2018 at 5:56 pm #1202553973

It wouldn’t even be treated at a court had the public not turned so passionately against him. Sometimes the power of the internet to unite people, that “angry mob” mentality can not only be a great thing for humanity in the case of overwhelming evidence against the accused (as is clearly the case here), but in the case of Cosby and hopefully Weinstein, a precursor to some serious legal consequences.May 25, 2018 at 5:58 pm #1202553974
If Weinstein does get sent to prison, I want either James Toback or Dan Schneider to go next. Even though the latter seemingly abused his power over more people, I want Schneider gone first because his victims were so young.May 25, 2018 at 6:11 pm #1202553979
Does Schneider even have any allegations against him? Who are these supposed victims? All I ever saw about him is some random person compiling all the shots of feet in his shows, which means literally nothing at all.May 25, 2018 at 7:00 pm #1202553995

I know this is just Reddit, but there are a ton of links to credible sources.
Also this. If you aren’t convinced by ANY of those links in the above then this medium post ought provide more than enough hard evidence.
Plus, that Jennette McCurdy vine was really disturbing.
I could keep going but YOU GET THE POINT. #DanDidIt 🙁May 25, 2018 at 7:18 pm #1202554000
Is there some weird stuff there? Sure, but it’s still all just speculation as far as I can tell. There needs to be more concrete evidence before we start saying he should be in prison.May 25, 2018 at 7:24 pm #1202554005

This shit goes back YEARS. Come on, Nickelodeon was never going to let this guy be caught since he had multiple shows making the network a ton of money.
“Even if one refuses to believe the accusations without any proof, the signs have been undeniably present in almost all of his works.
The dialogue in Dan Schneider’s projects was often riddled with sexual innuendos and double entendres. To a child, the vulgarities go over one’s head, but to an adult, it’s blatant that they were inserted into the dialogue deliberately.
After Nickelodeon announced their decision to cut ties with Schneider, Twitter user @deludedkiss posted a compilation thread of video clips from Schneider’s shows. The clips are just a few of the examples of the overt sexual innuendos often included in the dialogue of Schneider’s shows.”
You’ve gotta be a special kind of naive to not see the overwhelming evidence against this guy. Weird stuff is like Seinfeld’s comparison of Cosby’s multiple rapes to Bing Crosby disinheriting his kids, and then finding out Seinfeld actually dated a 17-year-old in the 90’s. That is certainly weird in my book. However, nothing that can legally be considered criminal as far as I am aware. Schneider is different.
“Most of the knowledge we have acquired on the Schneider situation is based on hearsay and on anonymous tips from insiders. The day after Nickelodeon announced the cutting of ties with Schneider, a well-known actress, thought to be Amanda Bynes, submitted an anonymous note to infamous celebrity gossip site Crazy Days and Nights. In the note, the anonymous actress thanks the site’s owner for their support over the years, and leaves a cryptic message in the note’s first paragraph.
The capitalized letters in the first paragraph spell “DAN DID IT.” In the second paragraph, the actress notes that she will not be coming forward “for obvious reasons.” If the actress in question is Bynes, perhaps she is not coming forward because she was not well-received the first time she accused Schneider of molesting her.
So why hasn’t anyone else come forward? Were they paid hush money? Are they afraid of retaliation? Are they afraid of being blacklisted within the industry?
The evidence corroborating alleged abuse by Schneider, albeit paltry, is damning. Although the story was seemingly swept under the rug shortly after the news broke, perhaps more of the people previously involved in his projects will come forward in the future.”May 25, 2018 at 7:43 pm #1202554015
Good riddance, Harvey! This should have happened months ago. In the words of Rose McGowan, “We got you. We got you.”May 25, 2018 at 10:13 pm #1202554064
‘Scared And Frail’ Harvey Weinstein Griped About Tight Handcuffs
Harvey Weinstein may have been smiling as he made his perp walk in New York City to the courthouse on Friday, but he reportedly griped about the tightness of his handcuffs.
Law enforcement sources told the New York Post that Weinstein had to have not one, but three sets of handcuffs in order to “accommodate his wide waistline,” but the former Hollywood mogul “still whined that the cuffs were too tight.” After Weinstein was put into a holding cell, he reportedly griped, “I don’t feel good.”
Sources said the 66-year-old Weinstein sat on the floor of the holding cell looking “scared and frail.” Page Six reports that he had difficulty walking as he went to court.
Weinstein — accused of rape, criminal sex acts, and sex abuse — was released on $1 million bail, but is under house arrest and cannot travel outside the states of New York or Connecticut.
Can this really happen to a devout Hillary fundraiser? Good buddy of the Clintons? What is the world coming to?
From Pulp: Is there some weird stuff there? Sure, but it’s still all just speculation as far as I can tell. There needs to be more concrete evidence before we start saying he should be in prison.
Yeah, it’s all hearsay, Pulp, all those accusers are liars…probably paid off by Trump. Keep your tinfoil helmet on at all times.
