Where were the parents?

THE appalling information revealed on the Jimmy Savile issue makes it clearly evident that child and sexual abuse is not only widespread, but the subject of a massive cover-up. The police and the BBC are but two institutions whose core elements need close scrutiny. The mainstream religious organisations can no longer hold their heads high in terms of morality.
Those who are responsible for child abuse do not fly a banner: they are insidious low-life who should at the very least be castrated prior to any form of punishment taking place. Yet, one must question the parentage of many of the accusers. What caring parent would allow their 14-year-old offspring to be hanging around the changing rooms of so-called celebrities, who because of their position feel that they can act beyond the realms of common decency, and walk away without reproach?
