How do you deal with things that were considered "right" in the past, but considered "wrong" now? do we judge them by past laws and sentencing guidelines, or todays?
That's quite easily dealt with. If they broke the law of the time it's a crime. If they didn't break any law then it's not a crime. Whether we deem it right or wrong now, morally speaking, or even at the time, if the law was not broken then the person would be found not guilty I presume, assuming it came to trial.
. Whilst i congratulate you on your arrival would you not be upset if your child was molested by an individual they idolised and trusted?
Well my child will always be my child even when they are an adult, so I guess the question needs to delineate in the way Tucker UK did so well above.
Say I had a daughter who was 14or 15 and she said some man groped her then I would be angry and would want that man dealt with in some appropriate way. But if she was say 10 and the same thing happened, then I would be as angry but would want the culprit dealt with in a very different way, more severely.
So I think it's the degree of morale outrage that is at question here and it's the degree of moral and legal contravention that Jimmy Savile was guilty of that has not been very well explained.
Did he grope 15 year old girls or was it far more serious than that? I don't know, which is why I'm asking. The media hasn't been very clear about it.
