Jimmy Savile - Did Jimmy Savile Engineer Programming To Target Children?

The Jimmy Savile child abuse scandal has taken yet another turn. Mark Williams-Thomas, the detective who first exposed it all, has added yet more cause for concern, by stating his belief that Savile "engineered" programs to get closer to children.  

"In the previous programme it was unclear what came first, he explained. "But I can very clearly tell you now that he created his television series as a vehicle for his offending. I believe he engineered his programmes within the BBC and Radio Luxembourg in order to gain access to children." He added that, "The classic examples are Top of the Pops, Savile's Travels, Jim'll Fix It - all of them gave him access to young children. That's why there were so many victims." Williams-Thomas went on to state the need for a secondary documentary in order to highlight the true extent of Savile's abuse, in light of fresh evidence. "In the first programme, we focused on a fairly short time scale. Now we're able to show that Savile's offending behaviours spanned four decades and many hundreds of victims," he said. "This isn't just someone who offended only against 13-, 14- and 15-year-olds. It's someone who offended against ten-year-olds."

And with regards to the outcome of the lawful investigation into the scandal, Mr. Williams-Thomas is positive there will be a judicial outcome: "I think there will be further arrests over the forthcoming days, weeks and months of people who were party to offending alongside Savile," he said. "There will also be arrests of people who have got nothing to do with Savile, some of whom will be of very significant standing."

This is the MO of pedophiles like accused pedophile, Sylvain Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and 1st Degree Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy. We need to get these menaces to our children off the streets. Unfortunately, Kustyan, a French native, is currently on the lam and a fugitive from the law.
