Has it really taken three months to come up with that answer?

I'm not analyzing. I asked a question, which I'll rephrase to be less vulgar:

Do you think Mahoney's film, which you linked above in this thread, makes a credible case that children were systematically abused at Haut de la Garenne, and this was covered up by local officials?

Here's a link to that video, for anyone who is interested:

On the contrary, "this crap" is definitely an analysis.

I appreciated the film as a child abuse survivor's emotional journey into the weirdness of the kind of insitutionalized child abuse that he grew up with.

FYI I've started a separate thread on barrister Barbara Hewson's comments about the "persecution of old men" and her advocacy of 13 as the UK age of consent, the end of anonymity for alleged sex abuse victims and a statute of limitations.

Revealed: how Jimmy Savile abused up to 1,000 victims on BBC premises

Executives turned a blind eye to attacks, according to former judge's 'shocking' finding
'

Quote:
The BBC will be plunged into a major crisis with the publication of a damning review, expected next month, that will reveal its staff turned a blind eye to the rape and sexual assault of up to 1,000 girls and boys by Jimmy Savile in the corporation's changing rooms and studios.

Dame Janet Smith, a former court of appeal judge, who previously led the inquiry into the murders by Dr Harold Shipman, will say in her report that the true number of victims of Savile's sexual proclivities may never be known but that his behaviour had been recognised by BBC executives who took no action.

...

"I was talking to someone at BBC Manchester in Salford who said 'we knew about Stuart Hall. He had a room where he would take women and young people'. You think: 'Oh my God, these people were offending almost in open sight and no one thought to intervene.'"
