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.
