Another child abuse scandal has shaken Britain in the wake of Rotherham, Rochdale and Telford.
According to a report by the Independent, dozens of girls in Manchester were abused by “male gangs with an Asian background”.
The news is particularly explosive: In a report by two experts, it was revealed that the victims of the grooming gang had turned to the authorities at the beginning and middle of the previous decade, but their pleas had fallen on deaf ears. According to the 145-page report, the reason for the police’s failure to act was the fear of being considered “racist”.
Apparently the police themselves did not prevent the ongoing sexual abuse for this reason. “The authorities knew that many victims were subjected to severe abuse and exploitation, but did not protect them from the perpetrators.” Similar things had been observed “in other cities across the country”.
In 2004 there was a large-scale police operation called “Operation Augusta” in the city, but it was also stopped shortly afterwards with the support of the city council. At this point in time, 57 victims were already known – mostly white girls between the ages of 12 and 16 – and 97 suspects.
Only three of the perpetrators were later brought before the court. According to the document commissioned by Mayor Andy Burnham, the police had already been informed of the names, addresses and even places of work of suspects.
Manchester Police Chief Ian Hopkins, who has only been in office since 2015, has apologized for his predecessors’ mistakes. “I am personally disgusted that nobody cared about these children and the terrible abuse they suffered,” said Hopkins.
In the past few years, cases of mostly Muslim child molester gangs who had abused children in the cities of Rotherham, Rochdale and Telford came to light. In Rotherham alone, around 1 400 white British children suffered sexual abuse between 1997 and 2013. There too, the police did not intervene due to “misguided political correctness”, as an investigation found at the time.
