Change and Harris

As a Rolf Harris supporter blames everyone but the paedophile himself for the publication of his vile views on his victims, it is time that Change.org closed down the inappropriate petition that seeks to free him

 

Not content with having seen the convicted paedophile they’ve supported exposed for the arrogant, remorseless monster that he truly is, Rolf Harris’ 1,205 supporters were sent a missive yesterday by Anne Pyke that blamed everyone but Harris himself for his latest blunder.

In the Change.org post, Pyke commented:

 

“The prison should have censored this letter and not let it out. It is the outpouring of a deeply hurting person filled with anger and pain. This pain is the pain of a person suffering from depression. It shows anxiety and a very deeply entrenched hurt”.

 

“Mr Harris needs an outlet for his pain and that should be in the form of a therapist where he can out-pour his feelings in safety. This song needs to be kept by Mr Harris as words on paper and used as the starting point for a therapeutic healing process. This poor man has been given no outlet so his hurt has come out by him sending this song to an untrustworthy weasel with no moral integrity”.

 

“In a country where we are bombarded with announcements about mental health, where we have mental heath awareness days. Where loneliness and the resultant depression was recently in the foreground of the news….the prison system fails a depressed and hurting man by not censoring this letter but instead allowing out into the wide world where it would be a valuable commodity in the hands of the Great British Sewage System, AKA The Press!”

 

“The prison system must take more responsibility for their charges, particularly a hurting an vulnerable elderly man. The staff of Stafford Prison are responsible for letting this letter out, not Mr Harris. The buck stops with the prison, a prison that should have had the nouse to spot a deeply hurting and depressed man who needs help and support and which should have sprung into action to offer a therapist, a place of safety for his feelings… NOT LET IT BE PUBLISHED!”

 

Pyke’s delusional rant proves nothing than that she is utterly bonkers and in describing the paedophile Harris as a “vulnerable elderly man” she piles yet more misery on his victims. It is time that Change.org did the decent thing and closed down this inappropriate petition.

  1. There does seem to be a very strong case for a Judicial Review – the ‘evidence’ against him doesn’t seem to be evidence at all and there are significant factual problems with his accusers’ testimonies. Plus one of the jury was a serving police officer and two jurors allegedly had a poor command of English. I suspect we’ll be hearing a lot more about this soon.
