There are plenty of precedents.
Britain will no longer name streets/places after prominent figures because of the backlash that happens when their misdeeds come to light, let alone pop culture icons like Jimmy Savile (of Top of the Pops fame in GB).
Belgium was supposed to have a rather extensive ring that included politicians.
Norway started investigating a ring last November in an operation called Dark Room but good luck finding anything about it from a MSM outlet. This investigation started with a tip from the FBI supposedly.
Just this last Feb. a California pedo ring was busted that was supposed to have up to 70000 members although the actual bust ONLY netted 474 alleged perpetrators and freed 230 abused children.
These have all happened fairly recently and many a "Trumpeter" will point to the recent wave of arrests in the US (CA, TN, GA, etc.) as a proof of his dedication to this effort. Even though I am leery about this type massive sweep for a crime that immediately brands the alleged perpetrator as sub-human whose protestations are not worth listening to (which is a great way to clear up enemies of all different types), I don't think that it doesn't happen, especially in the aspect of great power or money since when you can already have nearly anything you want, you now want what no one should.
It was always a dirty joke made about alter boys and priests until it came to light that it had been happening, and probably for centuries as the church is supposed to be the last place you would expect it.
Too much precedent to NOT be interested in investigations going forward.
As to "hipster"/artsy/metropolitan folk being misunderstood for their "quirky sense of humor", the absolute best camouflage is telling people the truth all the time and not having them believe you.
Some may just be quirky and pushing boundaries, but it's a broad brush to paint with when you can't vet them personally.
"A preacher, more subtle than the rest of the human herd, cried from his pulpit: "My dear brethren, do not ever forget, when you hear the progress of lights praised, that the loveliest trick of the Devil is to persuade you that he does not exist!" "
