Its also worth noting that New York has one of the most regressive laws in the US when it comes to these kind of cases.The satute of limitations is something like 23 years. And for civil liability you have to sue within 90 days of the abuse happening. So there is next to no chance Bam will be prosecuted. At least for the three or so individuals who have spoken out about it.
It seems you have five years to file a complaint
or until your 23rd birthday, after that there is nothing you can do at present.
These laws sound like they were made up by paedophiles to protect paedophiles from prosecution.
Ronald savage the first accuser against
Bambaataa who is a NYC Judicial delegate is taking this matter to congress
& trying to change the statute of limitations law.
He says apart from the healing process this is
the reason he has spoken out.
This is personally having quite a profound
effect on me being highly influenced by Bam’s music & the Zulu Nation’s doctrine
of Peace, Love, Unity & Having Fun for the last 30 years.
To find out he has been a pederast all this time
is pretty crushing.
If anyone cares here’s some highly
undersubscribed imho online partitions on the matter (for what it’s worth).

In a side note: I was icked out to realize just the other day that I own and enjoy a book (Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton's The Record Players, an excellent companion to their absolutely unfadeable Last Night A DJ Saved My Life) that contains interviews with both Bambaataa and Jimmy Savile. That I made this realization while reading said book on the toilet only added to the sordidness of it all.
Wow. Looking for the perfect boy.
this dude left a pretty horrifying legacy of tour antics along these lines in the EU earl 2000's that was known to industry heads and promoters but honestly, even though i heard stories first hand from guys who witnessed stuff, i was always like, naw man, no way. not possible. I figured it was just a big joke.whelp.
