The Inconvenient Truth We All Face on Child Sex Abuse

Illawarra Mercury
Aug. 31, 2014, 3:05 p.m.

Most of us – if asked – would agree that the sexual abuse of children is about as bad as human behaviour gets. This I've been saying for a year and a half now.

Most of us would like to think that we would do anything within our power to avert it, if given the opportunity.

But in the real world, people's reasons for looking the other way are many and varied.

In Britain this week, the South Yorkshire city of Rotherham – a regional metropolis just a bit smaller than Canberra – was devastated by the release of a report finding that 1400 young girls had been sexually abused and trafficked in the local area over the past seven years. That should be 16 years - 1997-2013.

Councillors, council staff and police – the report found – had profoundly under-reacted to the widespread abuse of children, which was mainly inflicted by men of Pakistani origin.
"Several councillors interviewed believed that by opening up these issues they could be 'giving oxygen' to racist perspectives that might in turn attract extremist political groups and threaten community cohesion," the report found.

Former Labour MP for the area, Denis MacShane, confessed that he had failed to inquire deeply enough into what was going on.

"I think there was a culture of not wanting to rock the multicultural boat, if I may put it like that," he told the BBC.
No-one to turn to; no-one to help
In Australia at present, the focus is very much on institutions, thanks to the current Royal Commission into sexual abuse.

It's easy to register the failure of an organisation to respond properly to abuse. It's easier still when the leadership of that organisation appears to have difficulty registering – on a human level – exactly where that abuse should rank in terms of its priorities.

When Cardinal George Pell drew his recent analogy between church organisations and trucking companies, it was honestly difficult to spot whether he had got the idea from some parchment-shuffler in Vatican PR, or practised it himself in front of the mirror that morning with a hairbrush.

"If the truck driver picks up some lady and then molests her, I don't think it's appropriate – because it is contrary to the policy – for the ownership, the leadership of that company to be held responsible," he told the Royal Commission. If it happens over and over and you keep transferring the pedophile around the country to avoid prosecution - then the leadership should certainly be held accountable.

It is not the first time Cardinal Pell has selected an unfortunate transport-related analogy to reinforce his argument that the Catholic Church has been unfairly targeted in the matter of sexual abuse.

"We are not interested in denying the extent of misdoing in the Catholic Church. We object to it being exaggerated," Cardinal Pell said in November 2012, responding to the establishment of the Royal Commission. Is that even possible?

"We object to being described as the only cab on the rank." - Must be an Aussie thing!
Cardinal Pell titanic struggle with his own mouth

In the ongoing titanic struggle between Cardinal Pell and his own mouth, it's become increasingly easy to demonise the church. Really, the church demonised itself when they hired and protected pedophiles.

Crimes against children are unspeakable enough; to complain implicitly that one's own organisation is less free to commit those crimes than another sounds reprehensible principally because it is.

And the church's brutal use of legal strategy to minimise its financial liability creates a simple and irresistible narrative: Money wins out over children. This would be distasteful enough from a national trucking company, but from an organisation built around love and solicitude for the helpless, it's a particularly nasty look.

The truth in Cardinal Pell's argument, though – however callously expressed – is this: Epic human failures in the recognition and prevention of child sexual abuse are not just a church thing. They're not even just an organisational thing.

As the evidence from Rotherham this week demonstrates, horrific crimes can be overlooked by individual people who tell themselves they are doing the right thing.

Calls are being made for the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner to resign over the failure of his force to investigate and pursue charges against the perpetrators.

The South Yorkshire police, of course, are the same law enforcement officers who raided Cliff Richard's house this month on the basis of a single allegation of sexual assault dating back three decades.
Cliff Richard
The Richard raid was carried live on the BBC, a broadcaster still smarting over its institutional failure to recognise, over several decades, that one of its best-known stars, Jimmy Savile, was a sexual predator who used his stardom to target children.

Why did those at the BBC who had their suspicions about Savile not pursue them? Why were men in Rotherham allowed to assault young girls while authorities ignored the increasingly evident crime patterns around them? Why were some paedophile priests in the Catholic Church shifted from parish to parish, and not punished for their crimes?

In the case of the church, it's easy to blame an organisation – particularly when it's a large, powerful one, and especially when it has as its spokesman a person so inveterately cloth-eared as Cardinal Pell.

But blaming organisations helps us avoid a deeper, altogether more uncomfortable truth; that looking the other way out of fear, deference, embarrassment or unwillingness to be thought prejudiced or unfair is a common human flaw, found everywhere.

Indeed, most people still don't comprehend the magnitude of child sex abuse or the devastating consequences it has on its victims. 

Siege of Amirli Broken, Aid Pours In, But Now What?

Less than 12 hours after I posted a story on the siege of Amerli (it can be spelled Amirli or Amerli), where the BBC correspondent suggested that it would be a long, protracted affair breaking the siege - the siege was broken, fortunately by the good guys.

Iraqi security forces and Shia militiamen on Sunday broke a six-week siege imposed by the Islamic State extremist group on the northern Shia Turkmen town of Amirli, following U.S. airstrikes against the Sunni militants' positions, officials said.
Army spokesman Lt. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi said the forces "reached" the town, but gave no details. Turkmen lawmaker Fawzi Akram al-Tarzi said they entered the town from two directions and were distributing aid to residents.

IS Siege of Amirli
About 15,000 Shiite Turkmens were stranded in the farming community, about 170 kilometres north of Baghdad. Instead of fleeing in the face of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria's rampage across northern Iraq in June, the Shia Turkmens stayed and fortified their town with trenches and armed positions.

Residents succeeded in fending off the initial ISIS attack in June, but Amirli has been surrounded by the militants since mid-July. Many residents said the Iraqi military's efforts to fly in food, water and other aid had not been enough, as they endured the oppressive August heat with virtually no electricity or running water.

Nihad al-Bayati, who had taken up arms with fellow residents to defend the town, said some army units had already entered while the Shia militiamen were stationed in the outskirts. He said residents had fired into the air to celebrate the arrival of the troops.
A few residents were rescued from the town
"We thank God for this victory over terrorists," al-Bayati told The Associated Press by phone from the outskirts of Amirli. "The people of Amirli are very happy to see that their ordeal is over and that the terrorists are being defeated by Iraqi forces. It is a great day in our life."

U.S. and other countries air drop aid

On Saturday, the U.S. conducted airstrikes against the Sunni militants and air-dropped humanitarian aid to residents. Aircraft from Australia, France and Britain joined the U.S. in the aid drop, which came after a request from the Iraqi government.

The Pentagon's press secretary, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said military operations would be limited in scope and duration as needed to address the humanitarian crisis in Amirli and protect the civilians trapped in the town.

The ISIS extremist group, also known as  Islamic State, has seized cities, towns and vast tracts of land in northeastern Syria and northern and western Iraq. It views Shias as apostates and has carried out a number of massacres and beheadings — often posting grisly videos and photos of the atrocities online. As mentioned yesterday, it is quite likely that had IS broken the siege, that an unimaginable massacre would have occurred.

This adorable, little, Amirli girl on the right is safe for now, but for how long? Will Iraqi and/or Kurdish troops remain in Amirli to help protect them from another attack? Or, will they go elsewhere where they are needed just as badly? If you are a praying person, please pray for this child and all those she represents in Amirli.
Mosul Dam
The U.S. also launched airstrikes near Mosul Dam — the largest in Iraq — allowing Iraqi and Kurdish forces to retake the facility, which had been captured by Islamic State fighters.

Earlier Saturday, the U.S. Central Command said five more airstrikes had targeted Islamic State militants near Mosul Dam. Those attacks, carried out by fighter aircraft and unmanned drones, brought to 115 the total number of airstrikes across Iraq since Aug. 8.

15,000 People Under Seige for Months; Yazidi Women Sold

Shia Turkmen in Amerli, Iraq, have been under siege for two months

US planes have made humanitarian aid drops to the besieged Iraqi town of Amerli, the Pentagon has said.
Some 15,000 minority Shia Turkmen in Amerli have been surrounded by Islamic State (IS) militants for two months.

The US also carried out air strikes on IS positions. The Iraqi army, Shia militias and Kurdish fighters have been struggling to break the siege.

Aircraft from the UK, Australia, France joined the US in the humanitarian aid drops, said Rear Admiral John Kirby.

Food, water, and medical supplies were delivered.

Rear Adm Kirby said operations would limited in scope and duration, as required to protect civilians trapped in Amerli.
The UN has expressed fears there could be a massacre if IS breaks through defences in the town, which lies in Kurdish-controlled Iraq.

Earlier, the US launched new air strikes on IS near the key Mosul Dam.

In a statement, the US military said an armed vehicle, a fighting position and weapons were destroyed in the raid.

It said the strikes were in support of operations conducted by the Iraqi security forces near the strategic dam in the north of the country.

IS has been accused of atrocities in areas of Iraq and Syria under its control.

The Shia Turkmen are seen as apostates by the IS militants.
Iraqi forces managed to evacuate some Amerli residents on 29 August,
and are fighting to break its siege
The BBC's Jim Muir, in the city of Irbil, says the combined forces are mounting an assault on two fronts in the Salahuddin Kurdish area in northern Iraq.

From the south, Iraqi government troops and allied Shia militias are trying to push into the Marin hill, which overlook the plain on which Amirli lies.

With the help of air strikes by the Iraqi air force, they are reported to be making slow progress, with roads in the area heavily mined and booby-trapped by the Islamist militants.

Around 80 Yazidi men were massacred in northern Iraq earlier in August by Islamic State militants
From further north, a combination of army forces, Shia militia and Kurdish Peshmerga fighters is reported to be trying to push down towards Amerli through a string of villages held by IS.

In one village, Salam, local sources said Shia militias had taken control of half of the settlement - but the IS militants fought back and drove them out.

The impression at this stage is that rapid movement to break the siege is unlikely and that it may be a protracted affair, our correspondent says.

The operation is reported to have two objectives: to break the siege of Amerli and to reopen the main highway leading north from Baghdad.

The road is currently blocked by IS.
'Sold for marriage'
Meanwhile, reports from Syria say that hundreds of Yazidi women, another Iraqi minority, have been sold and distributed as wives among militant fighters in Syria.

The women who were abducted during recent attacks by IS in Iraq are said to have been transported to Syria after being forced to convert to Islam.

At least 27 of them were sold to IS members for marriage, according to the UK-based monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

More Revelations About Rotherham Child Sex Abuse Scandal

From: The Economist

OVER the past few years it has sometimes seemed as though no news bulletin goes by without an awful account of child sex abuse. Celebrities and children’s entertainers, including Rolf Harris and the late Jimmy Savile, have been revealed as molesters; so have some teachers and clerics. The latest horror was laid bare on August 26th, in a report into the sexual exploitation of children in Rotherham, a poor northern English town. The report is also painful for what it suggests about race relations in Britain.

The investigation by Alexis Jay, a former chief inspector of social work, uncovers a catalogue of offences, mostly by Pakistani men against white girls. Children as young as 11 were plied with drink and drugs, raped, beaten and trafficked to be abused by men in other cities. One was doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight. Another told the investigation that gang rape was a usual part of growing up in her district. The report estimates that some 1,400 children—some from fragile family backgrounds, some in the care of the state—were abused between 1997 and 2013.
All of which is grim enough. But the local council knew at least ten years ago of widespread abuse and yet appears to have downplayed the problem. Nor did the police pay much attention to it. On one occasion, officers attended a derelict house and found an intoxicated girl with several adult men. They arrested the girl for being drunk and disorderly but detained none of the men. Well, at least they got the girl out of the house.

Some fathers tracked down their daughters and tried to remove them from houses where they were being abused, only to be arrested themselves. Now that requires an explanation!

Three reports had been commissioned in 2002, 2003 and 2006 to investigate early allegations. These found that some of the Pakistani men who were exploiting girls were also involved in gun crime and drug-dealing. Ms Jay noted that the reports “could not have been clearer” about the sexual abuse, yet the first one was suppressed because senior officers disbelieved the data it contained and the other two were ignored. As the council belatedly got to grips with the situation, five men were convicted in 2010 of sexual offences against girls, the only convictions to date.

Roger Stone, the leader of Rotherham council since 2003, resigned as soon as the report was released. Others, such as the man responsible for the regional police force—and formerly for children, as a council officer—are under great pressure to go. More than a dozen victims announced plans to sue the council and the police.
Rotherham town hall
Ms Jay’s report also suggests, rather tentatively, that one reason the abuse was downplayed for so long was the fear that local officials might be fingered as racist. Rotherham is largely white (Pakistanis are only 3% of the population) but other northern towns have been torn by fights between whites and Pakistanis. Several local councillors suggested opening up the issue of race could “damage community cohesion”. Staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators. Others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.

What the report does not spell out, but which is true, is that the horrors in Rotherham fit into a pattern. In other northern towns such as Oldham and Rochdale, as well as in southern cities such as Oxford, gangs of Asian men have been convicted of grooming and abusing young, mostly white girls. This is a specific ethnic issue more than a religious one, says a community worker in a city near Rotherham.

Young Pakistani men are increasingly alienated from their conservative parents, who want them to marry girls from back home (often the Mirpur district in Kashmir) and also from religious leaders, who often cannot speak English. Discussions of sex are taboo at home and in the mosque, so some learn about it from pornography, about misogyny from rap music and come to view white women as fair game (though the report also suggests Pakistani girls were abused, and that this was hushed up).

Learning about sex from pornography and then becoming a rapist, and worse, fits nicely with my theory that pornography among adolescent boys is largely responsible for the rapidly developing culture of rape in western societies.

In Rotherham, this ethnic misogyny then ran up against the institutional misogyny of the police and the mostly white council. Ms Jay writes of one female employee at the council being told that if she wore shorter skirts to meetings “she’d get on better” and other senior male officials making explicit sexual remarks to female workers. Some senior police officers clearly saw the abused girls simply as sexually precocious young women.

In apologising to the victims, Rotherham council’s chief executive, Martin Kimber, said he had commissioned the review to understand what went wrong so that it could never happen again. But there is probably much more to come, from other cities. The sound of accusations flying in Rotherham could just be the sound of the floodgates opening.

There needs to be a Royal Commission into this phenomenon. See my previous post for recommendations.

Why is Rotherham Child Sex Abuse Scandal Important to You?

This past week, I have posted a number of articles on the Rotherham scandal which continues to horrify me with each revelation. If you're not up on this issue, you can catch-up here, here, here, here, and here.
Rotherham Town Hall
Why is this issue so important for us to understand? 

There are several reasons besides the obvious of 1400+ girls being horribly abused as police and social services completely ignore the travesty. The 'how' and 'why' they ignored the issue must be understood to prevent it (or stop it) happening elsewhere.

There were, it appears, two main factors for the excuses that the police and social services had for doing little or nothing to save the girls. The first was the attitude that the girls - as young as 11 or 12 - were promiscuous, sexually active children. They believed that most of the children were in consensual relationships. They probably believed that nothing they could do would make any difference anyway.

There are several glaring weaknesses in those arguments. For one, the age of consent in the UK is 16. Consequently, consensual sex is impossible for girls 15 and under, which most of the girls were. It used to be called statutory rape. Apparently the South Yorkshire police didn't deem it a crime worthy of their time.

Even if some of the girls started as a consensual relationship with men twice their age, Professor Jay's report reveals that they quickly became a slave-master relationship. The police and social workers would have known that if they had bothered with even a minimal investigation.

The girls were often treated violently, beaten, gang-raped. They were fed drugs and alcohol. How is any of that not worth a criminal investigation?
Also, because these girls were thrown out with the trash, many of those who had babies from the abuse, had them confiscated by social services who never allowed anymore contact between the mother and child. It appears they were considered 'not worth the effort to try to rehabilitate'. Many such girls were certainly on drugs or suicidal, but they got that way because police and social services allowed them to be victimized over and over.

The second excuse was that police and social services/city council were paralized by the fear of being called racist. In an age of 'multiculturalism' when white guys are all racist and ethnic minorities are always victims, people bent over backwards to appear to be 'tolerant' if not enthusiastic of diversity. Consequently, 1400+ girls, mostly white, were sacrificed on the altar of political correctness.
Political correctness and the almost hysterical response from those who jump on any sign of nationalism or complaint about immigrants, are largely responsible for this. Of course, there are ultra-nationalists who are just as hysterical as their opponents, but their arguments are rejected as racist and therefore are invalid.

But what the ultra-nationalists realize, and greatly fear, is 'cultural jihad'. If you've never heard this term, it means spreading Islam to the world by sending 'missionaries' to non-Muslim countries to make converts. It also means emigrating to non-Muslim countries where you have large families, which have large families, which have large families.

This is happening in many western countries. Some will debate whether it is a conspiracy or not, but, actually, it doesn't matter; it's happening, and that's what matters.

In France, ethnic French people average one child per couple - meaning a significant decrease in numbers with each generation. Muslims in France average 8 children per couple. So for each generation, French nationalists reduce by about half while Muslims increase by a factor of four.

Parts of France are already dominated by Muslims and within one or two generations, France will be a Muslim country. It will be followed within another generation or two by several other EU countries. This is cultural suicide!

What happens when a country becomes Muslim? At some point, radical and/or radical extremists will rise to power and invoke Sharia law. Then European women will be made to wear burkas and men will be made to pray to Allah or die. This will happen in all western countries if it is allowed. 

The paradox in allowing this travesty to continue for fear of being labelled racist, is that the Pakistani perpetrators and customers were being very much racist. Most of the girls were young, white girls. Islam calls them Kafirs - cattle. They are infidels, so they are worthless except to satisfy the perverted tastes of Muslim deviates.

What to do?

First, the police should be going after the customers and any 'go-betweens' like taxi drivers, etc.

Second, there must be a public inquiry into all aspects of this sorry affair.

Third, new laws need to be written, for instance:

Immigration should come with a 5 year probation period where, if you are found to be unwilling to adopt the host countries morals and laws, you are repatriated to your home country.
Rotherman's Pakistani deviates

There should be no tolerance whatsoever, of Imams or anyone else who preaches jihad or who attempts to recruit people to jihad. They should be held in prison, incommunicado, until all appeals are exhausted, then deported.

Those who travel to the middle east to join jihad, should have their passports and citizenship revoked as soon as it can be proven. They should never be allowed to return to this country. They cannot be American, Canadian, British, Dutch, German or any other western citizen as well as being jihad.

Many Rotherham Victims had Babies Taken from Them by Social Services - and Never Seen by Moms Again

Report from the Sheffield Star:

Several Rotherham schoolgirls who were victims of sexual exploitation had babies as a result of being raped - children they were then never allowed to see again after having them taken away by social services.

The Jay report said that, in several cases, abuse victims suffered the ‘further trauma’ of having their babies removed and contact with their children stopped.

No-one has been able to say precisely how many girls in the town, who had babies after being in abusive relationships, had their children taken into care.
Professor Alexis Jay’s explosive report, published earlier this week, said child sexual exploitation in the town had an ‘absolutely devastating’ effect on the estimated 1,400 victims.

The report also highlighted another tragic element of the scandal for some of the victims who fell pregnant - being separated from the babies born as a result.

It said: “In a number of cases we read, children and young people had pregnancies, miscarriages and terminations.

“Some had children removed under care orders, and suffered further trauma when contact with their child was terminated and alternative family placements found.

“This affected not just the victims themselves, but other siblings who had developed attachments to the baby.

“However, there were other cases where vulnerable and sometimes very young mothers were able, with appropriate long-term support, to recover and successfully care for their children.”

Among the victims of grooming in Rotherham who went on to have a child was Laura Wilson, who was murdered, aged 17, in 2010.
Laura Wilson - Britain's first 'honour killing'

Laura’s baby was not one of those taken into care but, when her daughter was just 11 weeks old, Laura was stabbed and thrown into a canal by Ashtiaq Ashgar, then also 17 - after she told the families of Ashgar and the baby’s father, Ishaq Hussein, 22, about her relationships with them.

It was later revealed social workers had known for six years Laura was at risk from predatory Asian gangs, and had received information about adults suspected of targeting her from the age of 11.

Last year, a Home Affairs Select Committee report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham, which was commissioned in the wake of Laura’s murder, said police and council chiefs in the town had been ‘inexcusably slow’ at recognising the extent of the problem.

Rotherham Council said today it was unable to provide precise figures on how many abused girls had their children taken away from them.

A spokeswoman said the information kept by the council on care orders for children under a year old did not indicate specific reasons - such as child sexual exploitation or drug use - for a care order being made.

The spokeswoman said around 80 children per year are taken into care by the council.
Rotherham town centre
She said: “Each child is subject to either an interim care order or an interim supervision order under the Children Act 1989. The authority has to show the children have suffered or are likely to suffer significant harm, or be beyond parental control, and that obviously can include a whole variety of reasons.

“It is not a decision we take lightly. It is a last resort and follows a very lengthy process.”

Sarah Champion, Labour MP for Rotherham, said details about the removal of babies from abuse victims were ‘one of the most upsetting parts’ of the Jay report.

She said: “I have the utmost sympathy for the children and young people who suffered during this appalling period.

“That some babies born to the victims as a direct result of such horrific abuse were taken away, and never seen by their mothers again, speaks volumes about the way these girls weren’t seen as victims at all. In my eyes, this is one of the most upsetting parts of the report.
“I intend to press the council to find out what is being done to identify both the girls and their babies, and the counselling being offered. The parents involved deserve personal apologies. It is precisely these people we should keep in mind when holding to account those who failed in child protection.”

Prof Jay’s report said many children who were the victims of abuse self-harmed and became suicidal, and others developed drug and alcohol problems. So, obviously, there was some justification for removing many of the children from their mothers.
Joyce Thacker

Many suffered severe post-traumatic stress, but the report said there was ‘little or no specialist counselling or appropriate mental health intervention’. However, there is no justification for completely severing all ties with the mothers, or not significantly intervening to nurture the mothers back to health and then re-unite them with their children. For this reason, Joyce Thacker, Head of Social Services in Rotherham, should resign or be fired.

It found the majority of victims were white girls, with most perpetrators men of Pakistani heritage.

Prof Jay said: “It is important to emphasise that, even when agencies intervened appropriately to protect and support children and young people, the impact sexual exploitation had on them was absolutely devastating.
5 Pakistani degenerates sent to prison
There should probably be many, many more
“Time and again we read in the files and other documents of children being violently raped, beaten, forced to perform sex acts in taxis and cars when they were being trafficked between towns, and serially abused by large numbers of men. Many children repeatedly self-harmed and some became suicidal.”

It comes as the Labour party announced it is deciding whether to take ‘further action’ against its Rotherham councillors who presided over the town’s child sexual exploitation scandal.

The party is conducting its own investigation into the conduct of the Labour-run council over the period of the inquiry to review ‘what further action is necessary’.

The Jay report said senior councillors were told of the town’s abuse problems ‘in the most explicit terms’ in a seminar in 2004-05 - but did not act.

A Labour Party spokesperson said: “The party is reviewing what further action is necessary against any councillor who may have been involved in the appalling failure to protect children.”

Pressure is also growing on South Yorkshire Police over its handling of the issue. And yet, Commissioner Shaun White refuses to take responsibility for his considerable part in allowing this travesty to carry-on for 16 years. Someone must have the authority to fire him!

Child Sex Abuses in Rotherham Might Have Been Equal to One per Hour for 16 Years

Rotherham child abuse victim on reporting rape claims

A child victim of sexual abuse in Rotherham has told the BBC she was raped weekly, and that her family moved her out of the area after police failed to act on her claims.
Emma, now 24, told Radio 4's Today she was abused between the ages of 12 and 15, and that her parents went to South Yorkshire Police for help.

Let's see: if she was raped weekly for 3 years, that's 156 times she was raped. In a previous post I suggested that an average number of abuses might be 10, and if so that would mean 14,000 sexual abuses of children in 16 years, or nearly 3 per day.

If Emma's number of 156 is even close to the average (let's use a more conservative 100) then that means 140,000 CSAs in 16 years. That works out to 24 per day or one per hour. 

Are you beginning to believe my numbers in my signature post? One CSA per hour in one little town in England. How many are occurring globally right now? Thousands. Please pray for it to stop. Please pray my 3:15 PM prayer above or something like it.
Commissioner White

She told John Humphrys she was given drink and drugs as part of the grooming, and threats were made against her family.

South Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner faces calls to resign, and council leader Roger Stone is to step down after a report found at least 1,400 children were sexually exploited by criminal gangs between 1997 and 2013 in the town.

Attempted Rescue of Kidnapped Girls Sabotaged by Powerful Political Forces in Nigeria

Earlier this month, Australian counter terrorism officials conducted separate interviews with Stephen Davis and his wife. They wanted to know what Dr Davis had been doing in Nigeria for the past four months.
Stephen Davis last year with members of the terror group JAS, a forerunner to Boko Haram
Dr Davis, a self-described "amateur peacemaker" from Perth, Australia, had embarked on a solo mission to rescue some of the more than 200 schoolgirls captured by Boko Haram militants in April.

"I was very confident when I left because I had spoken with some of the commanders and organised the release and handover of some of the girls," he said. "Otherwise I wouldn't have gone."

If the Australian investigators asked Dr Davis to name his occupation, he may have struggled.

The 63-year-old, who has a doctorate in political geography, was a mining consultant to global resources company WMC and to petroleum giant Shell.

It was at Shell in the mid 2000s that he began peace negotiations with rebels in the Niger Delta. He then served as an advisor to two Nigerian presidents, developing links with terror cells as he negotiated on behalf of the government.

on the eve of a peace deal with the government.
A devout Christian, he moved to Britain to work as a canon in the Ministry of Reconciliation at Coventry Cathedral, alongside future Archbishop of Canterbury John Welby.

It was shortly after he returned to Perth when Dr Davis heard of the schoolgirl kidnapping in the village of Chibok, he decided to act.

He began remote negotiations with elements of Boko Haram. In Nigeria, he then travelled with a former Boko Haram guide in a beat-up car across the country's north, setting up a hand-over of girls that would contribute to a peace deal with the government. 

But each of the three attempted transfers were thwarted by powerful political forces looking to undermine the ruling party, Dr Davis said in a telephone interview.

"They were sabotaged each one of them in the end but we had commanders willing to do it."

The only success in his mission came after he received a phone call from a man who had been kidnapped by Boko Haram. They began orchestrating an escape for a small number of girls, with four eventually managing to cross from a camp on the Cameroon side of the border to a safe place in Nigeria.

"They're pretty heroic these young girls, pretty amazing," he said. "What they went through is staggering."

The only escapees since the first night of the abduction
Dr Davis said Boko Haram had become more hardline since a peace deal with the government collapsed last year.

He accused members of Nigeria's political opposition of sponsoring the more extreme elements of the group in order to weaken the ruling party.

Boko Haram out of control

"Some of the guys are uncontrolled in that they are just beheading people before they even know who the person is," he said.

"Or they go into a village and they'll disembowel a pregnant woman and take the live foetus for a ritual."

Dr Davis said the situation in Nigeria was deteriorating faster than at any time in the past 12 years.

Dr Stephen Davis
"When Boko Haram links up with ISIL - and there is interaction between the two - and with [terrorist group] al-Shabbab, that triangle is going to be the new home of terrorism like the world has not seen," he said.

"The guys before - there was no kidnapping, no rape. They wouldn't kidnap women or children, because that was contrary to the Koran. Now these guys will do anything, they are a totally different breed."

Dr Davis stressed the importance of negotiating with terrorists, no matter their crimes. "You've got to find common ground, you simply have to," he said.

"There is so much ground you can shift, if you've got time, and you can sit down again and again and again."

But he doubted another deal involving the release of kidnapped girls could be negotiated at the moment, "because things have tightened up so much".

"If it leaked out that they were willing to negotiate the releases of the girls or to talk of a peace deal, then other commanders would execute them," he said.

Deviate Deacon Does 9 Years for Sexually Assaulting 10 Boys

A deacon convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys at a Greater Manchester school has been jailed for nine years.
Alan Morris (screen grab)
The Rev Alan Morris, 64, was found guilty of 19 sex assaults carried out when he taught at St Ambrose RC College in Hale Barns, Altrincham.

Hale Barns is a village of about 10,000 just west of Manchester Airport, England.

When the offences took place, between 1972 and 1991, the school was run by Roman Catholic religious order the Christian Brothers. Oh God! How many reports of institutional gay pedophilia have I read that have the "Christian Brothers" name attached? Far too many! I wish they would change their name, they are a disgrace to every bonafide Christian, and, indeed, to Christ Himself.

The crimes came to light in 2012 when one of the victims contacted police.

Morris, of Rivington Road, Hale, had denied all charges at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.

Joanna White of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said he "abused his position of power within the school to prey on vulnerable young boys and continued to do so years after corporal punishment was abolished".

"He utilised the ability to carry out corporal punishment to perform acts and force others into acts which were designed to humiliate his victims in order to satisfy his own sexual desires," said Ms White.

"He had established a fearsome reputation as a ruthless disciplinarian at the school which prevented his young and frightened victims reporting him at the time."

One of his victims recalled how the "vicious beatings" he suffered became sexual abuse from which he never recovered.

The abuse came to light when an ex-pupil attended a child baptism ceremony involving Morris in 2012 and made a complaint.

Ms White said: "It was the complaint made by the ex-pupil which gave a number of victims the courage to contact the police.

"After many years of maintaining a facade of respectability, [he] has now been unveiled as a serial sexual offender who evaded justice for his crimes for decades."

Det Ch Insp Chris Bridge said: "For decades Morris displayed a veneer of total respectability; a science teacher in a well-respected and high-performing school and latterly as a deacon of the church.

"Today he has been unmasked as a persistent and prolific sex offender."

The detective added: "I have no doubt that he revelled in his fearsome reputation, taking it upon himself to seek out and punish pupils, using corporal punishment to cloak his real motive for chastising young boys."

Holy Angels Catholic Church, Hale Barns
Morris was a deacon at Holy Angels Church in Hale Barns at the time of his arrest but was withdrawn from active ministry with the Diocese of Shrewsbury.

The diocese said in a statement that Morris's crimes were a "source of great sadness and regret".

"Our thoughts and our prayers are very much with the innocent victims of the abuse carried out by Morris.

"We would like to assure them that the Diocese of Shrewsbury is totally committed to ensuring the safety of all children and vulnerable people in our parishes, schools and institutions."

St Ambrose RC College said in a statement it found it "abhorrent that Morris has been found to have betrayed the trust and responsibility that had been placed in him as a teacher".
"The incidents occurred many years ago and we would like to reassure parents, guardians and relatives that we have contemporary child safety policies in place and ensuring our pupils enjoy a happy and secure childhood and adolescence is our absolute priority."

Daytona Beach Dad Beats Up Pervert for Sexually Abusing His Son

Police say a man in Daytona Beach, Florida, beat an 18-year-old male for allegedly sexually abusing his child.

The father claims he walked in on his next-door neighbor, Raymond Frolander, battering his 11-year-old son.

The 35-year-old dad beat the suspect unconscious. 

In the 911 call that followed, the father told the dispatcher he witnessed a molestation and that he left the man ‘in a bloody puddle’. 

When police arrived at a little after 1 in the morning, they found Frolander lying on the living room floor. His lips were badly swollen along with most of his facial features and he had several knots on his face.

He is being held in jail without bail. According to investigators, Frolander confessed to molesting the boy and reportedly has been abusing him since he was 8. 

As for the father, he’s not in any trouble whatsoever. Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood stated, “Dad was acting like a dad. I don’t see anything we should charge the dad with.

You have an 18-year-old who has clearly picked his target, groomed his target and had sex with the victim multiple times.”

I'm not a fan of vigilante justice, but I'm OK with this. Might have done the same thing.

9 Year Old Girl Lured from Her Home and Brutally Raped

Police are hunting for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a nine-year-old girl after luring her from her home in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, on Wednesday night.

The girl's mother called police at around 10:40 p.m. PT to report her daughter had been lured from her bedroom where she had been sleeping.

second largest city.

Police say the suspect took the girl to a nearby park and allegedly assaulted her, before leaving her in a neighbour's yard, near the intersection of 128 Street and 99 Avenue.

"It's very unusual, highly unusual. This type of thing does not happen in Surrey, nor the region, quite frankly," said RCMP Sgt. Dale Carr.

"These are very rare incidences that have occurred."

The suspect asked the girl to remain in the yard while he left, but she quickly fled to her home to get help, police say. She has since been taken to hospital.

Surrey RCMP Special Victims Unit is investigating, together with Lower Mainland District Forensic Identification Section and additional investigative units.
At this point in the investigation, RCMP said this incident doesn't appear to be linked to attacks in White Rock and South Surrey earlier this month.

In the South Surrey case, a 38-year-old woman was walking along a trail in Alderwood Park at about 9:40 p.m on Aug. 18 when she was grabbed from behind and thrown to the ground, said police. The suspect tried remove her clothes and drag her into the nearby bushes but she resisted, and at one point head-butted him in the nose.

The woman got free and called police. The suspect may have a black eye, broken nose and several scratches, they said. Sounds like the pervert picked on the wrong woman. Good for her.

Surrey residents are being asked to check their windows are secured, especially those on the ground floor.

"Secure your windows and ensure that they cannot be opened overly wide," said Carr.

"Throw a stick in there or a metal rod, or if you are so inclined, you want your window wider, perhaps put a metal grate over the window during this hot weather."

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call the Surrey RCMP Serious Crime unit at 604-599-0502 or to remain anonymous, contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222 TIPS or online at solvecrime.ca.

Police Commissioner and Head of Child Services Refuse to Step Down in Rotherham in CSA Scandal

The Deputy South Yorkshire police and crime commissioner stepped down after a shocking report revealed at least 1,400 children were sexually exploited between 1997 and 2013 in her area.
Shaun Wright and Tracey Cheetham
Tracey Cheetham said she felt "unable to continue" in her role and called from Commissioner Wright to follow her.

She said: "It is vital for people to have confidence in the office of police and crime commissioner and, with this in mind, I believe it would have been the right thing for Shaun Wright to resign."

Mr Wright managed children's services in Rotherham between 2005 and 2010 and since the widespread abuse emerged has ignored repeated calls to resign.

Joyce Thacker, who has been head of Rotherham's children's services since 2008, has also refused to step down despite mounting pressure.

Their defiance comes as Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said she was "appalled" at the abuse exposed.

She announced that Ofsted (Office of Standards in Education) would carry out an early inspection of child protection services in Rotherham.

The Conservative MP added: "I will not hesitate to take further action if necessary to ensure children are safe."

Since revelations of widespread child sex abuse in Rotherham emerged Mr Wright has resigned from the Labour party but not stepped down as police commissioner.

The news comes as officials in Rotherham have been accused of knowing that youngsters were at risk of sexual exploitation almost ten years ago.
Joyce Thacker has also refused to step down despite mounting pressure
However, the predominant view was that the victims were "promiscuous teenagers in consensual relationships", she said.

Her claims put more pressure on Mr Wright, who was Labour cabinet member responsible for children's services while Dr Sharp was in the post in the middle of a 16-year period when 1,400 youngsters suffered wide-scale sexual exploitation including gang rapes, grooming and trafficking.

He has said he was "simply not aware of the scale of the problem" and is refusing to quit his current £85,000 role as South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner. Today Prime Minister David Cameron added his voice to those calling for Mr Wright to stand down.

Of course he was not aware of the scale of the problem because he refused to look at it!

In a statement, Dr Sharp said: "You can't be a director of children's services and not take responsibility for what happens to children."

She added: "As soon as I commenced in April 2005 as Rotherham's first director of children's services, I was briefed by politicians, senior managers and frontline staff about the issue of sexual exploitation of young people. Meaning, they knew it was happening, at least, by 2005.

"We knew that there were many children in the community at risk and feared that this was the tip of an iceberg. So they closed their eyes and hoped it would go away? I'm seeing a parallel with the captain of the Titanic here.

"Nine years ago, our greatest challenge was to change the predominant view that these young people were 'promiscuous teenagers in consensual relationships', rather than victims of child abuse."

Dr Sharp was among former Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council staff and police officers in the town who were interviewed for a shocking report into the abuse.

The document by Professor Alexis Jay was published earlier this week and revealed the horrific scale of abuse, in which girls as young as 11 were raped by multiple men between 1997 and 2013. They were also beaten and trafficked.

The report also claimed that authorities were reluctant to reveal that the majority of the perpetrators were described as Asian, for fear of being deemed racist. Actually, almost all were Pakistani - you're still doing it!

Dr Sharp spoke as it emerged that South Yorkshire Police currently have 173 "live" investigations into suspected child sexual exploitation.

The number includes 32 probes in Rotherham, a spokeswoman for the force said.

Professor Jay criticised police for "regarding many child victims with contempt".

In the light of the report Rotherham district police commander Chief Superintendent Jason Harwin offered an "unreserved" apology to the victims.

More Than 1400 Adolescent Girls Sacrificed on the Altar of Political Correctness

Multiculturalism is to blame for the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal!

Political correctness is a vile, perverted ideology which is wrecking our society and ruining the lives of the innocent.

Column by Leo McKinstry
British journalist and author

That is the only conclusion that can be drawn from the shocking child abuse scandal in Rotherham.

Yesterday an official report from Professor Alexis Jay, the former chief inspector of social work in Scotland, revealed that no fewer than 1,400 girls in the area, some of them as young as 11, had been systematically targeted, raped and assaulted over a 16-year period.

The scale of the abuse was horrendous, the violence harrowing.

The key fact about this brutal crime wave was that almost all the predators were men of Pakistani and Kashmiri origin, while the majority of their victims were white.

That is precisely why the abuse went on so long and the terrible suffering of the girls was ignored.

The authorities in Rotherham failed to act because the race-fixated dogma of anti-discrimination meant that they had completely lost their moral bearings and every last vestige of compassion.

Since the publication of the report, the media has been full of bewildered cries asking why this scandal was allowed to happen. But there is no mystery.

The fashionable political orthodoxy that has gripped much of the public sector, especially social work, holds that, in racially prejudiced Britain, ethnic minorities are perpetual victims and white people their oppressors.

Immersed in this doctrine the social services and police shamefully refused to confront the reality of predatory Muslim gangs attacking white girls.

This week's report admits that dark truth.

Professor Jay records that, though almost all the offenders were Pakistanis, "some people in the council and the police wanted to play down the ethnic dimension", while front-line staff were unsure how to speak out "for fear of being thought racist".

The staff who did nothing for years are a disgrace to their profession. To mankind, for that matter. What is particularly sickening is their desperation to cover up the abuse in their attempt to maintain the illusion that cultural diversity was working in Rotherham.

In the twisted mindset of the authorities, protecting their cherished dogma of multiculturalism was far more important than protecting vulnerable girls.
A report found that girls as young as 11 were raped in Rotherham
One victim stated that gang rape was a usual part of growing-up in Rotherham
That attitude is also highlighted in another passage in the report, where Professor Jay reveals that officials were fearful of tackling the Muslim gangs "because it might damage community cohesion". A little damage might have been a good thing as there appeared to be a little too much 'cohesion'.

But that just demonstrates the grotesque logical absurdity of multiculturalism.

There is neither a community nor any cohesion when this kind of violence, racism and misogyny is cravenly tolerated by the state.

The destructive influence of multiculturalism is further illustrated by the report's criticism of the police for relying too heavily on Muslim elders in their occasional, enfeebled attempts to address the problem.

If we had a strong British, united identity in our cities rather than the Balkanised mess that exists at present, the police could just get on with their job of tackling crime rather than obsessing about the sensitivities of another culture.

In the name of supposed tolerance the state has ended up colluding with savage intolerance in our midst.

The casual acceptance of multiple rapes by Muslim gangs is the equivalent of the blind eye turned towards Islamic extremism.

Like the victims of British jihadism, the abused girls from Rotherham have been sacri-ficed on the altar of political correctness.

Nothing better illustrates the monstrously warped priorities of this council than the contrast between its paralysis in the face of Muslim sex gangs and its decision in 2011 to remove three foster children from the home of their adoptive parents who were found to be members of Ukip.

Ukip is a political party formed 20 years ago to attempt to get Britain to withdraw from the EU. It's a bonafide party with considerable support.

Though these two parents were described as “exemplary”, Rotherham children’s services department argued that their political allegiance “did not fit” with the children’s “cultural and ethnic needs”. Isn't that amazing?

So Rotherham could act decisively when it wanted, but such rigour just shows the inverted morality that enveloped the council where support for Ukip was regarded as a greater crime than the rape of an adolescent. Or, hundreds of adolescents.

Even now, after all the revelations from Professor Jay, the cultural cringe is still going on. As I mentioned on this blog 2 days ago.

On Tuesday, as news of the scandal broke, five of the BBC’s seven online articles about the report made no reference at all to Pakistani men.

In the same vein, a pitiful article in a Leftwing newspaper argued that we have a duty “to avoid sensationalist stereotyping”.

That is exactly the cowardly attitude which allowed these crimes to go unpunished for so long.

Nor have the authorities shown any real remorse. All we hear is the usual blather about changed procedures.
cclr Stone

Apart from council leader Roger Stone, no bureaucrat or police officer has resigned.

Imagine if this situation had been reversed, with more than 1,000 Asian girls attacked by gangs of predatory white men.

The media would have exploded with fury.

In place of this mix of trepidation and defiance there would be mass sackings and demands for a wholesale revolution in cultural attitudes. Sadly, for all its horrors, Rotherham is just the tip of iceberg.

The same phenomenon of predatory gangs has been seen in other towns with significant Muslim populations such as Oxford, Telford, Derby and Rochdale, met by the usual response of indifference and cover-up from the authorities.

The sheer geographical incidence of this abuse is another indictment of the creed of multiculturalism.

I believe all immigrants who commit violent crimes or crimes against children should be deported immediately after serving their prison sentence. What do you think?

Backlash Against Polish to Detect 'Rape Drug' Just Stupid

Four male college students at the North Carolina State University are developing a new kind of nail polish that changes colour in the presence of date-rape drugs, like GHB and Rohypnol.

The goal of their company, Undercover Colors, is "to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves," specifically against sexual assault, they said on their Facebook Page.

"With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger," they said. "If her nail polish changes colour, she'll know that something is wrong."
Undercover Colors initially garnered praise, with hundreds of thousands of likes and shares across Facebook and Twitter.

"There are already bulky devices that can be used to test drinks for date rape drugs," writes Adam Clark Estes for Gizmodo .

"But it's not necessarily easy to carry these things around on a night out and whip them out at bars."

However, the inevitable internet backlash came from a surprising source - anti-rape advocates.

Tweet: Rape prevention nail polish sounds like a great idea but I'm not sure how you're going to get men to wear it.  (@andreagrimes)

"I'm appreciative that young men like want to curb sexual assault, but anything that puts the onus on women to 'discreetly' keep from being raped misses the point," writes Jessica Valenti for the Guardian.

"We should be trying to stop rape, not just individually avoid it."

Valenti argues that promoting products like Undercover Colors is not only ineffective, but also can lead to "victim-blaming," if women don't take all the suggested precautions. So, are you saying that women shouldn't take any precautions so they won't get blamed for their own rape? That's utterly illogical!

Tweet: How about women don't have to wear a special nail polish and dunk their fingers in every cocktail not to get raped (@lindywest) In an ideal world, Lindy, but this is not an ideal world nor will it ever be short of the return of Christ.

"Women are already expected to work hard to prevent themselves from becoming the victims of sexual assault," writes Tara Culp-Ressler for Think Progress.

"Now, remembering to put on anti-rape nail polish and discreetly slip a finger into each drink might be added to that ever-growing checklist-something that actually reinforces a pervasive rape culture in our society."

Additionally, date-rape drugs are not necessarily a factor in the majority of sexual assaults as much as alcohol.

Tweet: This new nail polish that can detect the date rape drug is great if you think women aren't trying hard enough not to get raped.  (@kellyoxford) Kelly, I know rape is always the man's fault not the girl's but when you hear about college students getting so blotto drunk that they pass-out at a party - it's obvious women are not doing enough to protect themselves. 

Now, don't go hysterical and say I am blaming the victim, that argument accomplishes nothing but continues the status quo. The fact is if girls didn't get blotto drunk in an environment where there is any possibility of being raped, there would be a lot fewer rapes on campus. To scream 'victim-blaming' and ignore this argument, is just flat-out stupid.

Writing for Jezebel, Erin Gloria Ryan says that improving education around sexual assault could prove more beneficial than colour-changing manicures.

"Teach men that having sex with women too incapacitated to consent is rape," she writes.

That's certainly an essential part of eliminating rape from our culture Erin, but, like some women, some men can't be taught anything. It's not the least bit fair, but women should do everything they possibly can to avoid being raped. Once the world is perfect, then it won't be necessary, but I wouldn't try holding my breath until that happens.
