Two local councillors, one of whom is still serving, and a police officer have been accused of having sex with victims involved in the Rotherham child abuse scandal.
1,400 children were raped by gangs of Pakistani men between 1997 and 2013. Girls as young as 11-years old suffered abductions, beatings, and rape by multiple attackers, as well as trafficking across the North East. Similar abuse has been uncovered in Rochdale, and Keighley.
The South Yorkshire Police constable at the centre of the allegations is also alleged to have passed on information to gangs grooming young girls in the town. A second police officer has been accused of neglecting his duties after failing to report his colleague.
Both claims are being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. Today’s modern police force is a beyond a joke, ignoring child rape, while harassing, even arresting, people for speaking out on Facebook and Twitter against the decline in rule of law.
According to The Times, the complaints against the two Rotherham councillors “are understood to have been sent to the National Crime Agency, which is investigating child-sex crimes in the town”.
The news comes on the same day that a much-anticipated independent inspection report by former Victims’ Commissioner Louise Casey declared Rotherham Borough Council “not fit for purpose”.
The reports found that councillors and police officers were aware of the abuse, but chose to “disbelieve, suppress or ignore” it, for fear of being called racist – most of the rapists shared a religion and ethnicity. The abuse of these little girls is the largest racist attack in the British Isles in modern time, but few cared because the victims were white.
