Yes, well Skippy, I don't think humour is all that appropriate in this situation. One of his victims was only 7 yrs old.
An interesting factor is the time lapse. It could be debated that there should be a time-limit on bringing crimes to light. I don't subscribe to this, as the effects of abuse are often lifelong. Also, the fact that he was named and not subject to any anonymity encouraged other victims to come forward.
I wonder if the modern 'celebrity culture' has changed enough so that famous people no longer see themselves as immune from prosecution. I think that Jimmy Savile for example was almost impossible to prosecute due to his enormous popularity and influence. Let's hope that mindset no longer pertains.
I too can feel slightly (but only slightly!) sad that a great performer and apparently superb human being has feet of clay. But he chose to do these things and must now take the consequences.
