Jimmy Savile was a "predatory, serial sex offender" but he did not "groom the nation". He was allowed to continue abusing because he was a 'celebrity'. Pretending that he "groomed the nation" allows those who knew to minimise and deflect their guilt. Those who knew and did nothing are guilty of helping Savile in sexually assaulting hundreds of children and adults. I say hundreds but we will never know how many. The term "grooming the nation" only serves to silence victims. It serves those predatory, serial sex offenders who are still harming people.
I want to emphasise the personality of the people who day in, day out look at some of the worst crimes imaginable. Theirs isn't a job that's easy to talk about down the pub on a Friday night but what they do is absolutely essential. It requires supreme attention to detail and a determination to stay committed to the very end of the removal process.
