Jimmy Savile: IPCC say Greater Manchester Police in the clear over complaints 11 Nov 2013
Police had 17 reports by women from the region claiming abuse by the DJ during the 1960s
A watchdog says it won’t take action against Greater Manchester Police over the way the force handled complaints about Jimmy Savile.
When the DJ was exposed as a serial sex abuser last year, some 17 women came forward and reported to GMP that they had been molested by Savile from the 1960s.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission launched an investigation amid reports that police officers elsewhere in the country helped Savile cover up his crimes.
Now the watchdog has announced it will conduct a further enquiry into a West Yorkshire Police inspector who ‘acted on behalf of’ Savile inappropriately by contacting Surrey Police ahead of a police interview in 2009….
Pervert Jimmy Savile manipulated BBC security staff so they would allow girls into his dressing room

Handwritten message reveals how the twisted celebrity deliberately cultivated a phony friendship with doormen at the corporation
Serial pervert Jimmy Savile frequently manipulated BBC security staff so they would allow girls into his dressing room.
A handwritten message, published by the Mirror today, reveals how the twisted celebrity deliberately cultivated a phony friendship with doormen at the corporation so they would never question his requests.
The sickeningly chummy note, addressed to “BBC security friends” and signed with his customary smiling face drawn inside an expansive J at the start of his name, was scrawled on notepaper from Stoke Mandeville hospital where he was a fundraiser.
A BBC insider said: “It perfectly illustrates the position of power Savile had. “He flattered and made friends with security staff and this enabled him to carry out his horrendous attacks.
“He even wrote this on headed notepaper of the National Spinal Injuries Centre. This was not unusual.”
Savile used BBC studios to abuse dozens of girls and young women….

Supreme Court Grants Justice Dep’t Request to Reject Child Victims
By James R. Marsh on December 6, 2011
Last week the United States Supreme Court ignored the extraordinary pleas of three nationally recognized child advocacy groups and granted the Justice Department’s request to dismiss a child sex abuse victim’s appeal for criminal restitution.
The case now returns to the district court which must follow the DC Circuit’s holding that the victim in this case, Amy, does not have a clear and indisputable right to full restitution, but must instead trace precisely how her losses were “proximately” caused by each of the thousands of child molesters and pedophiles who collect and trade her child sex abuse images.
The Supreme Court’s rejection means that a child pornography victim’s right to criminal restitution in the federal courts will continue to be limited and denied in sixteen states and territories, including California, New York and Washington, DC. Only in the Fifth Circuit—encompassing the states of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi—is restitution still mandatory.
The Court’s denial—and the Justice Department’s stubborn refusal to abandon a legal standard which the influential Ninth Circuit concluded “present[s] serious obstacles for victims seeking restitution in these sorts of cases”—leaves child sex abuse victims like Amy with scant chance for justice in the federal courts.
Pedophiles, child molesters and the Justice Department are likely to seize on the high court’s rejection as a sign that criminal restitution for child sex abuse victims is all but impossible in the federal courts except under the most egregious circumstances. http://www.childlaw.us/2011/12/supreme-court-grants-justice-d.html
