Jimmy Savile - Your letter was only the start of it

The whole Jimmy Savile saga, which has probably been running forty years or so raises a lot of questions about celebrities and their status and excuses that are found for their illegal and immoral behaviour.Can someone please explain to me how and why the many people who were either abused or knew about his activities made little or no attempt to stop him or draw the matter to the attention of the police or authorities.I have already heard all the excuses. "It was a different time" "But it was Jimmy Savile" "Everyone knew what was going on" "No one would have believed me" "But he raised £40m for charity"What do you think?Mike SegallThe Giving Card
