According to an eye-opening audio tape exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, Hollywood star Corey Feldman told police in 1993 the names of two industry insiders who sexually abused him as a teen in the 1980s, at the height of his film stardom.
And what did police do with this stunning information? They did absolutely nothing.
And now the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office, which took Feldman's statement years ago during an investigation into abuse by Michael Jackson, is declining to answer questions about why it did not follow up or examine the star's criminal claims, according to RadarOnline.com.

The eye-opening tape comes on the heels of the release of Feldman's new autobiography in which he recounts being repeatedly sodomized and molested during the height of his teen success.
Hollywood: Today's playground for pedophiles
Meanwhile, a stunning new report claims that because of the explosion of media outlets, television companies, and the Internet, predators are today sexually exploiting children in Hollywood at their highest levels ever.
"In Hollywood, there are parents who will practically prostitute their kids in the hope they can make money and get ahead," claims Hollywood veteran Allison Arngrim. "It's more common than you think."
Arngrim also adds, "Predators are typically very careful when choosing … They look for kids whose parents are maybe going through a divorce, are very naïve, suffering with addiction problems, or are simply crazy stage parents who will look the other way."
Not Catholic priests
Yet despite the eye-opening nature of all of these stories, several major media outlets – most notably the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and the Los Angeles Times – have not reported a single syllable about any of this.
(The L.A. Times' omission is especially egregious in light of the fact that Hollywood is right in the backyard of the paper.)
Meanwhile, these papers have never flinched in not reporting each and every claim of abuse against a Catholic priest, no matter low long ago or how flimsy.
The double standard is not just glaring. It's blinding.
