Well, some did. Some went right to the homes where their daughters were being drugged and raped and prostituted. However, instead of saving their daughters, the police came and arrested the dads.
Other than that I have seen no indication of fathers going to bat for their daughters. I would like to think that if my daughter were being abused like that, that I would indeed be standing up for her with a baseball bat.
I know that doesn't sound very Christian, but it does sound effective, and since the police weren't interested in saving the girls, what else are you going to do?
In this stunning video, which was posted on Feb 13, 2015, some fathers, not enough of them, but some fathers showed up at city council and confronted council and then the police after they were called.
Late in the video there was a stand-off outside the council offices with the fathers and the police. I credit both sides for not raising emotions to the level of violence. But in a remarkable bit of footage, the photographer walked along the line of police men and women videoing their faces, most of which were looking down at the ground. The father's taunts of police involvement in both the sexual abuse of the young girls and in the enabling of the Pakistani Muslims to rape, drug, beat, and prostitute the young girls of Rotherham without concern of having to face consequences, were clearly resonating with the officers.
Police, child services, and city council's attitude toward these girls was that they were trash anyway, so who cares what happens to them? I'm not sure that attitude has changed very much.
