    Default I'm in shock- Rolf Harris

    Is it just me or is every other Australian in shock. A family legend, an icon.... Now just a low life degenerate.... Two charges of doing something nasty to a minor and one cause of making nasty images of a minor....
    I'm gobsmacked.

    It did shock me a bit when he was first arrested a couple of months ago but it seemed like they were building some sort of case so these charges aren't that much of a shock. Never would have picked it though, goes to show you just never know who the scum of the earth really are.

    Not really, he has always come across as a bit sleazy I think.

    I was shocked when it was first announced a couple of months ago.

    But like a pp said, they seemed to be building a case.

    I guess, disappointed and angry. Apparently it was 30 or so years ago. That would have still put him in his 50s, right?

    Nope not shocked at all. Don't know why, but it just doesn't surprise me.

    When it first came out and the media were only saying vague things like, 'An older Australian entertainer', straight away my DH said 'Rolf Harris', but I must admit I didn't think of him.

    That said, I'm not surprised and I really don't know why. The only thing that used to irk me about him was how he always touted himself as this full on Aussie Icon (over in the UK) and yet hasn't lived in Australia for decades.

    If he is guilty, I hope justice will be served appropriately and that the girls (ladies) can have some closure.

    The images charges are about recent behaviour, which says to me there's probably a long history of offending but they only have proof of these handful of incidents.

    Awful. In his profession he would have had lots of access to children/teens.
