The NXIVM cult: Why did it take so long for police to become involved?

Many have heard of infamous cults like Children of God or The Peoples Temple – both have extraordinarily tragic & abusive stories. Today cults still continue to brew under our noses. Just last year Keith Raniere, the leader of the “self-help” programme NXIVM, was convicted for sex trafficking and racketeering that started all the way back in 1998. 

Cults can be particularly horrifying not just for their psychological and physical abuse, but because they can go on for so long without being discovered or snuffed out. But why is it that cults can evade law enforcement so expertly? Nxivm is a prime example of why complicated & poisonous cults can be so difficult to take down.
