Abuse by Jimmy Savile – What a terrible story!

20 Nov
jimmy savile - child abuser

Jimmy Savile - just how did he get away with it?

Jimmy Savile was a star but he did bad things. He targeted children and young people, both men and women. He sexually abused them, this means he was touching them on their private parts and raped them or forced them to have sex.

why didnt anybody stop jimmy savile whilst he was alive?

 

I am very angry and upset about this, how did he get away with it?               

                          

  

Jimmy Savile had friends who also abused people and they all kept the secret together

                 

       

Because he had friends in high places who covered it up.                         

                     

the truth about jimmy savile and his cronies is disgusting       

I am disgusted about what happened, I feel sorry for the victims. It is hard for them to speak up because they are scarred and they don’t know who to tell. They might worry that their family and friends won’t believe them.       

   

it is hard for victims to speak up about abuse

        

A lot of the victims were disabled people, it is even harder for people who have learning disabilities to speak up about abuse.

               

  alot of the abuse happened in the 70s and 80s - people were'nt so aware of the threat in those days

Also a lot of the abuse happened in the 1970s and 1980s when people were not aware of sexual abuse as much as they are now.      

      

The UK needs to help abuse victims speak up more

 

 In Britain we need to get better at helping victims to speak up about abuse.      

                                       

 

Let all disabled people support each other to tell about abuse

     

Disabled people should support each other to tell about abuse and help the victims. So speak up by telling the police, support workers or call a helpline like:

Winterbourne View – Stop the Bullying!

12 Nov
In the dock - the 11 Winterbourne View careworkers

GUILTY – 6 of the 11 Winterbourne View careworkers have been sent to jail

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KickAss Maracas is not happy

I am very angry and upset about what I have heard on the news about Winterbourne View. Winterbourne View was a home for disabled people where the staff were bullies. They closed it down and now the bullies have been sent to jail – see BBC News 26th October.

The people who lived there have been moved to different places but a journalist has found out that many are still being bullied in the new places – BBC News 29th October.

Ace is pissed off

 

This is disgusting, I hate this so much that this is happening again. It will cause problems for the disabled people in their later life. I think they should stop all the bullying, it’s not fair and it’s not funny!

 

Annabel annoyed big time

 

It is wrong, professionals should step in and stop this as soon as it happens.

 

Malak is fed up with all the bullying that goes on

 

A lot of bullying is going on, it is getting worse and the bullies are getting away with it!

 

 

Dont put up with bullying! Report it to sort it!

Many disabled people get worried and frightened when they hear these stories in the news. They might think that this will happen to them if they have to live in a home.

If you are being bullied ring the police straightaway, we say:  

Report it to Sort it!
