People who make fun of the satanic panic obviously didn’t see any documentary detailing the rituals and what the children and others who try to leave are put through. I couldn’t even finish watching the documentary I first saw on it.

They had so much momentum back then.

I listened to a couple podcasts about the Satanic Panic a while back. One was investigative, and after it went to court, they found out nothing was happening after all. It’s the kind of disinfo that makes you scratch your head and ask, “Can anyone actually know anything for sure?”

If those circumstances were true and the perps were innocent, it’s a great example of using the exception to prove the rule.
