When the outrage that is Operation Yewtree began in October 2012 no one took to the streets. Of course the two events were vastly different, 12 innocent people had lost their lives. BUT, those of us on the front line of the campaign for Justice For Jimmy Savile and anyone else deemed guilty without due process, the parallel is there.
When fellow blogger Moor Larkin amongst others began challenging the Savile narrative we were shouted down by the anonymous and the not so !
It's called FREEDOM OF SPEECH and we are all entitled to our opinions. If someone offends or annoys anyone else online or social media they can, in the case of twitter, block them.
What you should NOT do is resort to violence or incite others to commit violent acts, because then you have LOST whatever moral argument you and your cause might previously have held.
Speaking for myself, I only want the truth. I only want justice for everyone. Say what you like to me on twitter etc etc I won't come to your house or place of work, with a gun and I won't incite others to harm you.
I am not Jimmy. I have not died and been found guilty of things that, to date, no-one has had to PROVE happened. I am Jimmy because, like him when he was alive, I am entitled to the protection of the laws of our land and I am innocent until someone proves otherwise.
I am also Charlie - I think you know why !
