Update: Here is a lengthy story at the Daily Mail with lots more facts about the verdict and about (by our standards) the very short sentences some of the perverts received.
And, frankly, even this story is exhibiting that same political correctness it criticizes—in the UK they can’t seem to get the word “Muslim” to come out of their mouths, so they call all the Muslim immigrants from places like Pakistan “Asians!”
Here is the dreadful story. Reminds me of the Somali sex trafficking ring on trial in Nashville right now.
From the Sydney Morning Herald (check out the mugshots of these creeps!):
Police and social workers in England have been accused of failing to investigate a South Asian paedophile gang for fear of being perceived as racist, leaving the men free to prey on up to 50 white girls.
Nine men from Rochdale, Greater Manchester, were convicted of abusing five vulnerable teenagers after plying them with alcohol and small sums of money.
The true number of victims who were “passed around” by the gang was likely to have been nearer 50, police said.
Greater Manchester Police and the Crown Prosecution Service apologised after they failed to bring the case of the first victim, known as Girl A, to trial following her initial cry for help in August 2008.
One 13-year-old victim became pregnant and had the child aborted while another was raped by 20 men in one night, Liverpool Crown Court heard. Complaints to social workers and the police were ignored because they were “petrified of being called racist”, Ann Cryer, the former Labour MP for Keighley, said.
Mrs Cryer, who has campaigned to bring the issue of Asian sex gangs to light, said the girls had been “betrayed” and condemned to “untold misery” by the police and social services.
