Posted on 08/26/2014 11:03:05 AM PDT by annalex
Around 1,400 children were sexually exploited in one town over a 16-year period, a damning report has said.
The report on events in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, between 1997 and 2013 found that in more than a third of these cases the youngsters were already known to agencies.
It said there had been "blatant" collective failures by Rotherham council's leadership.
"children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally-violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone"
She said the first of these reports was "effectively suppressed" because senior officers did not believe the data.
The other two were ignored, the professor said. The report said: "By far the majority of perpetrators were described as 'Asian' by victims."
But, she said, councillors seemed to think is was a one-off problem which they hoped would go away and "several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist".
She said: "Others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so."

If you want to be on this right wing, monarchy, paleolibertarianism and nationalism ping list, but are not, please let me know. If you are on it and want to be off, also let me know. This ping list is not used for Catholic-Protestant debates; all confessions are welcome.
In jolly old England, “Asians” means Pakistanis (Muslins).
Level That HellHole!
“In jolly old England, Asians means Pakistanis (Muslins).”
It’s also used as a descriptive for Indians.(Hindu)
Being scared to identifying evil just ensures more evil
“because senior officers did not believe the data.”
Because they are muslimes doing what muslimes do?
Yes, but nobody believes Hindus did this. Muslims, yes. Mohammed showed his followers it was good and proper to rape children.
I have to wonder how many victims were funneled to the “Royals”.....
Given how some of the Royal Family seem to have their heads stuck up certain “groups” of savages.... cough... Prince Charles... Cough cough...
Yes; also Hindu are not known for blowing up things at the slightest suspicion of “racism”.
|senior officers did not believe the data|
This is just an absolute gem, isn't it?
They are closing their eyes.
I think they are closing their eyes because they are cowards, knowing that any inference this might be muslimes doing what they do would lead to charges of racism and immediate dismissal from the police.
Not exactly. It refers to people from South Asia, the former Empire of India, including what is now Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, etc. I don't know if they use the term for Malays.
It thus includes Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and Buddhists.
FWIW, the CIA lists Muslims as 4.4% and Hindus at 1.3%.
Non-trivial numbers of Muslims are immigrants from African and other countries outside South Asia, and thus aren't called Asians in India.
Acck. Last two words should have been “in UK.”
I take your point, but do you have any doubt that the child molesters and murderers were Muslim in this case?
Not at all. My comments were strictly linguistic. I’ve always been intrigued by the way the word Asian is used in completely different ways here and there.
To the point where immigrants to the US from the areas that Brits call Asians weren’t classified as such till recently. We still don’t use the term logically, as I believe it excludes Iranians, Israelis, Arabs, Turks, etc.
I made a point in listening to the BBC radio and TV news at 6 O’clock and they identified the culprits as being mainly of Pakistani origin. Which means the rapists are Muslims as there are virtualy no Hindus in Pakistan (1.6% of the pop. is Hindu).
What he meant, if I understood correctly, was when Muslims do bad things the politically correct media is afraid to accurately identify them as Muslims. So they use other terms. The term most often used is Asian.
It is meant to confuse and misinform the reader and therefore prevent them from realizing what Muslims are doing.
