No excuse for abuse
THE spotlight on any sexual abuse, particularly of allegations made against Jimmy Savile and others in the entertainment business, will help a lot of women who have lived with the pain it caused for years.
More important, it has to be the catalyst for a heavy crackdown now on such behavior, wherever it happens and whoever is involved. Equally, those who cover up for the guilty should be punished whoever they are. Further, those who use positions in religous, teaching and care organisations to find victims or cover up for those who do should be banned immediately and for ever.
