Police let paedophiles rape in Rochdale and Rotherham: Charlene Downes is still missing
STILL no sign of Paige Chivers and Charlene Downes, the missing teenagers. But the better news is that Rochdale police, social workers, children’s homes and all other bastions of authority that failed to protect the children from gangs of paedophiles may have to pay the victims compensation. Some of the girls were as young as 10 years old. The nine men convicted of raping scores of children in Rochdale are aged between 22 and 69.
Some of the victims complained to the police. And the police ignored them. The police said the girls were wilfully “engaging in consensual sexual activity”.
The girls were almost uniformly white. The rapists were almost uniformly of Pakistini heritage.
The pattern has been repeated in Rotherham.
The Times reports:
[A] report suggested that police invariably treated victims “as deviant or promiscuous” while the men they were found with “were never questioned or investigated”.
“All of the victims … expressed frustration with the initial response from children’s social care and the police and described these services as ‘not listening’ to them. They felt that they had co-operated fully with police processes and given sufficient information for the agencies to help protect them, but nothing changed and the abuse carried on.”
A July 2010 independent review for Rotherham’s safeguarding children board, noted:
“Although the alleged perpetrators are of Asian origin and the victims are white, this is the factuality of these cases alone; nothing more can be drawn from that. It is imperative that suggestions/allusions of a wider cultural phenomenon are avoided. These assertions are without foundation.”
What utter nonsense. This fear of offending – this view of white girls as sexually available, promiscuous liars – is what allowed the BNP to say it was right and gain traction. The abuse of women is allowed to flourish. It’s a man’s world.
In August, two married brothers, Ahdel and Mubarek Ali, were found guilty of the sexual exploitation of four 13 to 17 years old girls. All the victims were white girls from Telford, Shropshire.
One victim told the court:
“I was just lonely. I wanted that extra bit of loving, someone that cares about me, and Eddie was like happiness for me. It’s like I was in love with him and it felt right but I knew he didn’t feel the same way about me. I look back at it now and think, ‘What a muppet’.”
Eddie raped her. Many other men in restaurants did.
Ahdel Ali (pictured) was convicted of rape, 11 counts of sexual activity with a child, three charges of controlling child prostitution, and one count each of inciting child prostitution, inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and meeting a child after sexual grooming.
Mubarek Ali, 29, was found guilty of four counts of controlling child prostitution, two of trafficking a child within the UK for sexual exploitation and one charge of causing child prostitution. They will be sentenced in October.
As for Charlene Downes… Well. Where is she?
