I think digging that piece of scum Savile up, and dissecting his body in public, might help to give his many, many victims some satisfaction which was denied to them when he was alive!
It's possible that it may do just that, but it seems more like the rule of the knuckle-draggers and the lynch mob than the disinterested and dispassionate operation of justice to me. There are very good reasons why societies which aspire to be civilised and rational don't let victims of crime decide punishments. Personally I prefer this:
The former isn't infallible and certainly has many imperfections, but I trust it to weigh up evidence and come to a conclusion (which is right more often than not) in a sane and measured manner. I can't say that about the latter.
