Sir Jimmy Savile

Arnold Schwarzenegger may be a creep, but his sins are innocuous compared to the 'predatory sex offender' Jimmy Savile, an English disc jockey, television presenter and media personality who is now being vilified in the press for his criminal sexual activities with children over a 40-year period.

An investigation is now underway to discover how extensive his criminal actions were after a raft of women and a few men have come forward claiming that Jimmy either groped or raped them in his dressing room at the BBC, while others have claimed he assaulted them in the schools or hospitals where they were residing at the time. New allegations keep arising every day, the latest being that Jimmy may also have been a necrophiliac. He was in charge of taking the dead to the mortuary at a hospital where he volunteered for years. When he was once questioned about this, Jimmy said that everybody would accuse him of liking dead bodies. 'I'm not a necrophiliac!' said Jimmy. Likewise, he said he wasn't a pedophile.

In the early days of the scandal, some said it was unconscionable to accuse the dead of crimes for which they couldn't defend themselves, however too many witnesses have now come forward with stories that can't be refuted.

Jimmy Savile on the air at Top of the PopsJimmy Savile was with the BBC for thirty years as a presenter and host of Jim'll Fix It and Top of the Pops. He was a legend. Over the years many entertainers guested on his shows, including the notorious Gary Glitter, who evidently had sex, in Savile's dressing room, with an underage girl. According to witness Karin Ward, who was 14 years old at the time, she and two fellow pupils of Duncroft boarding school for ‘intelligent, emotionally disturbed girls’ in Surrey were invited to London by Savile. She recalled: ‘I saw Gary Glitter have sex with a girl in Jimmy Savile’s dressing room in that little alcove bit. I didn’t see it completely but that’s what was going on and nobody batted an eyelid. Jimmy Savile had a [14-year-old] girl on his lap and he had his hand up her skirt. The girl Gary Glitter was having sex with also came from Duncroft. I think she might have been not quite 14.’

Gary Glitter, a 70's rock star, went to jail in Vietnam for raping children in his home. That was after being charged in England when the discovery of thousands of images of children on his computer lead to his arrest. He brought his computer in to be serviced and they were discovered on his hard drive. At that time, Jimmy Savile had defended Glitter's right to view child pornography. Glitter is now being questioned by police about these latest allegations.

Louis Theroux did a documentary on Jimmy Savile in the late 90's and it's obvious that Jimmy had a weird, quirky personality. He comes off as evasive, argumentative, egotistical and hyper-active. He revered his mother, whom he called 'Duchess,' and lived with her his entire life. Twenty years after her death her room was still untouched.  Was her corpse propped up in a chair in the corner?

More of Jimmy's sexual crimes are being uncovered everyday as the investigation broadens to include schools and hospitals. At Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, where he was free to come and go to prey on young patients, some as young as nine years old, some of the staff knew about his behavior as the children were told to pretend they were asleep when Jimmy visited.

Jimmy Savile in white sweat suit Sir Jimmy was untouchable while alive, but since these revelations have been uncovered, his epitaph in Scarborough has been ripped up and smashed and sent to a landfill, the plaque on his house has been removed, and he will probably be stripped of his knighthood. Perhaps his corpse should be dug up and tossed on a slagheap and burned, as has been suggested. There will be no retribution for Jimmy, as he died in October 2011.

Again, it's the most vulnerable who are victims of pedophiles like Jimmy. His legacy also shows how hundreds of people were involved in covering up his actions for the sake of protecting the reputation of the BBC and by the time this investigation is over, many people, including entertainers, will be discovered to have had a hand in Jimmy's pie.  How else do you account for him carrying on for so long?  Sir Jimmy.   So vile.
