    Sheffield Telegraph ^ | 28 October 2014
    Three brothers alleged to have abused more than 50 girls in Rotherham remain at large - despite police being told about their activities more than a decade ago, it has been claimed. A former Rotherham Council researcher said mentions of the brothers, who are of Pakistani descent, featured ‘very heavily’ in a dossier she produced for police in 2001 on suspected abusers in the town. But the information was never acted upon - and the researcher has told MPs that the men have never been prosecuted for the alleged abuse, despite facing other charges on different criminal matters. In her...

    Almost forgotten in the uproar over the brutal ‘‘whuppin’ ’’ that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson laid on his 4-year-old son is just how great a runner Peterson was. I say ‘‘was’’ because it’s not certain Peterson, 29, will play in the NFL again. He is out indefinitely, with pay, as he awaits trial on charges of reckless or negligent injury toward his son. The trial tentatively is set for Dec. 1, too late for him to return and play this season. If he is found guilty, he could receive a prison sentence of two years and a $10,000 fine....

    We live in a hyper-sexualized society where so-called experts think it wiser to push sex on younger and younger children. The abortion industry doesn’t mind at all, because Planned Parenthood can prey on young impressionable teens and pre-teens by telling them that early sex is perfectly fine and can exploit them to sell them abortions when the young girls become pregnant.With that in mind, here’s the latest from Las Vegas, where apparently there are not enough clients for the legal prostitutes so they need to convince children at a young age to become interested in sex.As one report indicates, the...

Gangs of men, mainly of Pakistani Muslim heritage, lure white girls as young as 10 with gifts and displays of affection. Next, the girl is raped as a way of “breaking her in”. Once the child’s spirit is subdued, and her mind fogged with drugs, she is sold for sex to multiple men at Ł200 a time. If the girl tries to break away, a gang member might threaten to behead her or firebomb her home. Mohammed Karrar, who was found guilty in the Oxford sex-grooming...

In fact, Muslim grooming gangs (mainly Somali) have already found their way to the streets of America. These gangs have been operating for over 10 years in Minnesota, Tennessee, Michigan, and Ohio. The largest grooming case in U.S. history was from Somali immigrant communities in Minneapolis (MN) and Nashville (TN), in which 29 Somali Muslims were indicted in 2010 for kidnapping, raping, and selling underage girls between 2000 and 2010.

He is the head of Britain's largest children's charity Barnardo's which now stands accused of having known about the Muslim rape gang problem for well over a decade - but which chose to do next to nothing to confront it. In an ugly interview with Sky News, Khan infuriated viewers - and his normally mild-mannered...

    I wrote yesterday about the horrifying news from Rotherham, England: An estimated 1,400 children were victims of child sexual exploitation between 1997 and 2013, according to an independent inquiry commissioned last fall by Rotherham’s Metropolitan Borough Council. But because the perpetrators were overwhelmingly “Asian” — for the most part, Muslim men from Pakistan — local authorities, from social-services managers to law enforcement, regularly neglected reports of rape, assault, and sex trafficking for fear of being deemed racist. Today, a U.K. newspaper illustrates in ghastly detail what young girls in Rotherham have faced for nearly two decades. The Mirror reports that...

    Let’s start with a riddle. If South Yorkshire Police can mount a raid on Sir Cliff Richard’s home in pursuit of evidence linked to a single allegation of child sex abuse 30 years ago, why were South Yorkshire Police incapable of pursuing multiple allegations against multiple men who raped 1,400 children over 16 years? One thousand four hundred. Consider the weight of that number, feel its tragic heft. Picture 50 junior-school classes of little girls in Rotherham, once a respectable northern town, now a byword for depravity.

The report described rapes by multiple perpetrators, mainly from Britain's Pakistani community, and how...

    The sexual revolution has presented itself as the great emancipator of women, freeing them from the shackles of outdated misogynistic double-standards that prevented the fairer sex from engaging in as much unbridled, shameless promiscuity as men. But insisting that all women, and sometimes children, are equally capable of exercising their “sexual rights” may get a young girl 25 years in prison. Her name is Jessica Burlew, a 16-year-old girl who is being tried as an adult for killing (one of) her abuser(s) before he could perpetrate a statutory rape. I came across her story as I was researching this story...

    The son of the former Penn State football player had only five weeks to live. Pete Curkendall and his wife, Renee, already were caring for an adopted girl with AIDS and cerebral palsy. Doctors then stunned them with news that their 2 1/2-year-old biological son, Joshua, had a cancerous brain tumor and almost certainly wouldn't survive. They had just moved to the Syracuse, N.Y., area and knew hardly anyone. At least they weren't lacking for hope and resolve. Caring for kids with special needs was a life-long plan for Renee Curkendall, as much now as it was then, 16 years...
