Who the hell was covering up for this guy for 40 years? A lot of people need jailing. I'd suggest defiling the guy's grave, but he'd probably get off on that.

Same thing I was wondering. He sounds like a bonafide psychopath.

Isn't an age range that wide with no preference for gender or type kind of odd?  Or have I just watched too much Criminal Minds?

Oh, more on the Savile row.

I thought that was buttoned up.  Ah well, suits me fine.

How did a TV and radio personality gain access to medical patients and the morgue with enough liberty to abuse patients and the deceased without anyone raising an eyebrow? This is either a total lie or a huge systemic security failure!

He was an equal-opportunity psychopath. If it didn't have a hole he liked, he'd MAKE one

He was their spokesman, and brought in shiat-tonnes of money for them over the years.  The tacit blind eye was in recognition of his fundraising, apparently.

Give him a break. Most of you have your eye on a cold one at the end of the day.

Ok, I'm sorry but that's kinda cool. If I could get my hands on some inexpensive glass eyes, I'd totally be crafting some fun stuff.

He had a real flashy headstone, one that fitted his psychotic egomania, but his family had it removed after all this came out, otherwise it would be a public toilet by now...

Here's the headstone...:

I seem to remember reading that perpetrators of sexual assault do it because they enjoy preying on the helpless.  Sexual attraction has very little to do with it.  That's why the elderly are actually one of the more common targets for sexual assault.

Apparently, Johnny 'Rotten' Lydon tried to report him, but the cops wouldn't believe him. Same with several other instances.

Well, of course he 'wore huge rings made from the glass eyes of dead bodies' - would you rather he wore huge rings made from the glass eye of LIVE bodies?

That would be a lot of weight to carry around....

Dr Sue Proctor, who led the investigation into his abuse at LGI, said a student nurse recalled a conversation with Savile in which he claimed he performed sex acts on the dead.

A most perplexing mystery.

/ Gave him a knighthood
// appointed him onto the board of hospitals for the mentally ill

Is this the guy missing the eye for the ring?

I really hope this isn't obscure on FARK

Looking at that guy, it blows my mind he was popular in England for anything, let alone entertaining children.  He LOOKS like some creepy, perverted albino ghoul, like the villain in a horror movie.

What's wrong with those people?   Besides the teeth, of course.  And the food.  And idolizing necrophiliac pedophiles.

hillary: Heh.

I listen to BBC Radio Shropshire during the day via the web. This has been all over the BBC top of the hour national news -- how he "interfered" with corpses as well as young people. He volunteered in a mental hospital where residents complained of him. Even a nurse claimed to be raped by him and the police refused to believe her.

Jim'll Fix It? Yeah. Whatever.

Highly recommend BBC Shropshire, though. Adam and Vicki are hilarious and Colin Young is pretty cool too.

I've never heard anyone sing the praises of BBC Shropshire before. Personally, it makes my ears bleed.

It was a different time.  The mentally ill weren't even people!  It was before we realized that they should all be in jail, or on the streets.

The weird thing is we all thought he looked like a creepy, perverted albino ghoul. I'm sure other British people will back me up here, but pretty much every, constantly made jokes about his personality and appearance. I'd wager most people just thought he was a relatively harmless dirty old man.

massive in the UK in the 70s and 80s. Equal parts Dick Clark,  Lawrence Welk and Dr Demento.  And Ed Gein, apparently.

my mother absolutely would not allow his shows on in our house.  She just found him so deeply unsettling. Pretty certain she didn't imagine it was this bad. But yeah, when I was about 10, everyone made jokes about how he seemed to be a terrible person.

Jerry Sadowitz said it outright on TV in the 90s, but no-one really paid him any attention.

I don't blame you. That's partly what makes all this so bizarre. When I was growing up, Saville was a DJ and a children's TV presenter. He was popular, pretty much, and like a lot of people had an image as a 'good guy'. Charity work and that kind of thing. But I never really got the impression he was important. Not important enough to put pressure on the police not to investigate allegations, or to keep things quiet and out of the press. He seemed to be an eccentric, but then a lot of TV personalities had an element of bigness to them. Bigness, now -- not importance. Not power.

And yet ... staggeringly ... he somehow managed to gain quite a lot of actual, behind-the-scenes power. I guess he must have managed it, essentially, through blackmail of one sort or another. I know he ran at least one nightclub at some point (I lived in a block of flats where someone who knew him in his heyday lived -- she was an old dancer she and dropped his name every now and again as if he mattered, somehow).

The Saville 'scandal' comes at a time when it looks like a lot of British institutions are getting a hammering. The BBC, the press, the government ('government' in principle, there, not just the party which happens to head it). Saville represents a very unpleasant stink at the upper levels of UK society. It looks like he wormed his way through the publicly great-and-the-good, dragging out or indulging their evils and then squeezing them so his own could be left under wraps. A psychopath.

Yeah, given all the other things he did, we can be happy he was ONLY wearing glass eyes from dead people.

You think that's the sick part of the story, subby?


That's the cool part.

The sick part is he was farking corpses.


But maybe you think that's the cool part.
