Rotherham Child Abuse Scandal
This is a gigantic story to which I cannot possibly do justice in one article. The report on child sex abuse and trafficking in Rotherham has been published today and paints an extraordinary story of systemic failings among the various child protection agencies in the area.
• The gist of the story is that a minimum of 1400 children were victims between 1997 and 2013.
• More than a third of these cases were known to the authorities.
• Children were repeatedly raped and sexually abused. They were forced to witness violent rapes and then threatened with death if they told anyone.
• The South Yorkshire Police treated many of the victims with contempt when they attempted to complain.
• Council staff were afraid to identify the perpetrators as they were ‘Asian’ (I’ll leave you to puzzle on that term for a while).
• Police and child protection services knew of these activities for at least 10 years (elsewhere I’ve heard 35 years).
According to the report’s author, Alex Jay:
They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated.” She said she found girls as young as 11 had been raped by large numbers of men. The Guardian, 26 August 2014.
This is just a quick overview – but one of the problems is that the Rotherham case is just a single instance of multiple sex gangs operating up and down the country. Altogether it constitutes a national scandal of epic proportions. These children were sacrificed on the altar of multiculturalism. We’ve already seen the monstrous acts in Syria – well here is another side to them. Political correctness and vile ideas of ‘multiculturalism’ and ‘community cohesion’ condemned these children to sexual slavery. It is outrageous that there are very substantial rumours going round the internet – some put forward by individuals claiming to be ex-police officers – that the sexual trafficking of children by ‘Asians’ has been known about from the late 1970s onwards, but next to nothing was done about it – until now. Is it the case that while millions of pounds were spent investigating the ‘Satanic Panic’ in the 1980s and 1990s – in which there was NO Satanic ritual abuse – the child protection agencies, including the police, KNEW that sex gangs were raping and trafficking children across the whole of Britain?
I think we need an answer to that question.
