We can deal with your patronizing attitude right away if you wish. I certainly did not imply they should not talk about it if it is indeed much later. I understand people are scared but It will certainly help if victims speak about it as soon as possible. That way it is documented and if others come forward it helps build even more evidence. Talking about it years after the fact introduces many variables. Foggy memories, evidence that might no longer be there, witnesses that may have been around at the time, etc. There is a reason why having a jury who knows none of the details beforehand is ideal.
