Documentary ‘Keep This Between Us’ exposes sexual predators and ‘widespread grooming’ in our public schools
On August 9th of 2017 we wrote about Jason Edward Meyers a teacher at Palmetto High School in Miami-Dade, Florida who is a pedophile who stalked his underaged students for sex for a decade. We wrote,
As Florida’s public school students are heading back to school, parents should be aware that Miami-Dade County Public Schools have been plagued by numerous sexual assault cases by teachers and administrators over the past five years, the most recent being the “Jason’s Girls” episode.
According to a legal complaint filed in federal court in Miami, Jason Meyers had molested numerous girls since 2004. When his principal at the time was told of a particular offense in 2008, the complaint alleges, he was transferred to another school. The complaint reads in part:
This action concerns the repeated sexual abuse and harassment of Plaintiff by her English and Creative Writing teacher, Jason Edward Meyers (“Meyers”), during Plaintiff’s junior and senior years at Miami Palmetto Senior High School (“Palmetto High School”), while she was 16 and 17 years old. Plaintiff is one of many underage female students that Meyers recruited, groomed, and exploited in a systematic fashion during his near decade-long tenure as a known sexual predator employed by Defendant. [Emphasis added]
Now there is a documentary titled Keep This Between Us about Jason Meyers and other predators in our public school classrooms.
In this documentary a woman re-examines her past relationship with a teacher, exposing the shocking statistics of widespread grooming in U.S. high schools.
On August 4th, 2022 we published an article titled It Took Over 6-Years and 9 Months to Bring to Trial a Teacher Accused of Being a Sexual Predator. Why?
The article was about Jason Edward Meyers and that he is still walking the streets of Miami, Florida, even though he is facing three felony charges of sexual battery. We wrote,
Many are questioning if our criminal justice systems are working properly and we are insuring that those accused of a crime are brought to trial quickly. One Florida case caught our attention after a reader contacted us.
We were recently made aware of the criminal trial of Jason Edward Meyers in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Meyers is a former Palmetto High School teacher who is accused of 3 counts of felony sexual battery upon young girls, who were his students, in April of 2014.
Meyers is still walking the streets of Miami-Dade County on his own recognizance. To date there have been 572 docket hearings on the Meyers case. Unbelievable. If we can’t bring someone accused of sexual battery to trial what does that say about our criminal justice system?
We thought that justice must be swift in order to be effective in deterring crime.
We were wrong when it comes to Miami-Dade County. It seems justice is slow and favors the alleged perpetrator rather than his victim or victims
Jason Edward Meyers originally appeared in court on a bond hearing on February 19th, 2016 (read the details of State Case here: No. 132016CF0034080001XX.)
According to the Miami-Dade County Clerk of the Courts Meyers is now scheduled for a trial hearing on November 28th, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. (see Meyers, Jason Edward case file). That is 6 years and 9 months after the alleged crime of sexual battery upon a young girls.
The Gulag Archipelago wrote, “When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
We agree. Not punish sexual predators, pederasts, pedophiles and perverts rips apart the very foundation of our justice system. These criminals prey upon our most vulnerable children!
“Keep This Between Us” premiered on August 29th and is now streaming on Hulu.
