The Jimmy Savile sex scandal, the outrageous BBC cover up has rocked England, and has shocked the world. The now deceased television host is accused of molesting over 300 children, while the BBC turned a blind eye to his disgusting acts. In fact, police claim that Jimmy Savile is not the only celebrity to have allegedly abused children over the last 30 years. How many more celebrities will be arrested?
This weekend, former popstar Gary Glitter and convicted sex offender was rearrested for his participation in the Jimmy Savile child abuse. Hundreds of potential victims have come forward accusing Savile of molestation, who was the longtime host of popular shows “Top of the Pops” and “Jim’ll Fix It.” Most allege abuse by Jimmy Savile, but some said they were abused by Savile and others.
“Can it really be the case that no one knew what he was doing? Did some turn a blind eye to criminality? Did some prefer not to follow up their suspicions because of this criminal’s popularity and place in the schedules?” Chris Patten wrote in The Mail on Sunday.
It’s shocking how a celebrity can abuse their power and take advantage of innocent children. Similar to the Jimmy Sandusky case, so many people ignored the warnings, and allowed the criminal conduct to go on for years. If laws were changed, stating that bystanders allowing the abuse to happen could be arrested to, might make people come forward.
Astrochicks thoughts and prayers to the families hurt by Savile and his buddies. So sad.
