As allegations pile up against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and others in his orbit, Los Angeles’ city attorney, Mike Feuer, is urging victims of sexual harassment and abuse to come forward so officials can champion them.
“We know this is not just a Hollywood thing — it’s a workplace thing, arising all too often in virtually every industry,” Feuer said in a statement Tuesday, pledging to believe victims and, when possible, prosecute the people who have wronged them.
His office is encouraging victims of harassment or abuse that took place in L.A. to contact the Los Angeles Police Department.
Too bad Feuer hasn’t taken a similar stand in defense of victims of brutality at the hands of the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The poor, the homeless, the mentally-ill, and people of color could use some help.
