    Re: Woody Allen - Pedophile?

    I said pedo. Where there is smoke, there is usually fire, like Sandusky and the Penn St. stuff. He's got the Sun Yi stuff, then the second daughter allegations. There is not a long public history of incidents, but he is a smart fellow and he may repress more actions for fear of being caught. But, my guess, pedo.

    STAY on topic. I know it's hard but I have faith that you can do it.

    THIS is not a court room. It is a political debate site where I CAN and WILL give my opinions on subjects. My opinion on this is that Woody Allen is a pedophile.

    Korean Soon Yi was only ten when her mother began keeping company with Woody Allen. The couple went on to adopt two more children and to have one bio-child of their own. Allen's relationship with Soon Yi, appropriately, would have been paternal.

    Dylan Farrow is the daughter adopted by Mia and Woody who has accused him of sexual assault when she was 7. In 1992 this accusation was investigated. From CNN:

    "A team of investigators from Yale-New Haven Hospital that was retained by the Connecticut State Police subsequently concluded Dylan had not been abused," according to an account in the Times, which covered the custody proceedings.

    Acting Justice Elliott Wilk of State Supreme Court "said it was unlikely that Mr. Allen could be prosecuted for sexual abuse based on the evidence," the newspaper reported. "But while a team of experts concluded that Dylan was not abused, the judge said he found the evidence inconclusive."

    Whether Soon-Yi was ADOPTED or not, Allen's relationship with her was inappropriate.
    It's a clear demonstration of his proclivities.

    My understanding is that it was Farrow who adopted the children and not Allen. IMO, that says something about his lack of emotional attachment and involvement with the children. I have also seen him say in interviews that pre-date the whole controversy saying that he's not particularly fond of children.

    I think it is. Ridiculous after spending his entire life in therapy.

    I have absolutely no idea.

    Maybe he is, maybe he isn't.

    Acting Justice Elliott Wilk begs to differ.
