From the Manchester [UK] Evening News:
‘If it means knocking someone’s door for something they did 20 years ago we are going to do it’
A new police unit to investigate child sex grooming gangs in Greater Manchester has already identified more than 800 offenders.
It is running three major investigations into historic abuse of young girls in Manchester and Rochdale.
GMP’s Force Child Sexual Exploitation Unit, has 54 officers and staff and has been launched at a cost of £2.3m.
A year in the planning It comes in the wake of stinging criticism of the force for previous failings when investigating such crimes.
Across the force there are now 70 investigations which involve multiple victims of child sexual exploitation.
A total of 468 victims have been discovered of whom 332 have been identified. Police say there are 809 offenders of whom 540 are known.
In addition there are “hundreds of cases” where a single victim is involved.
One, Operation Exmoor, has identified ten new victims in Rochdale aged nine to 16 who were sexually abused between 2008 and and 2013. A wide range of alleged offences committed against them includes rape and sexual assault.
It was begun after a review of Operation Span, an investigation into an infamous child sex grooming gang led by Shabir Ahmed, known as “Daddy”. ..
As I wrote in Taki’s Magazine in 2013, a year before the Rotherham revelations:
It’s most useful to think of this practice not so much as pedophilia — a bizarre fetish — but as economically rational whoremastering. Pakistani pimps focus on recruiting very young postpubescent English girls because they are so naive.
In contrast, women-respecting Swedes seldom make talented pimps.
In the many Pakistani grooming cases in England, Ali G types would convince silly little white girls that they were their boyfriends, provide them with drugs, then browbeat them into proving their love by having sex at a party with all the pimps’ Uncle Jamaals.The genius of the system is that the pimps don’t pay the girls, not even their room and board. After each party, they dump them back at their moms’ council flats.
Is this rape?
Of course. These girls are adolescents, far too young to give consent to being gang-banged.
Is it racial?
Feminist Susan Brownmiller’s 1975 bestseller Against Our Will famously argued that “rape is a crime not of lust, but power.” That’s obviously missing much of the point. And yet conquest and rape seem to go together.
It might seem insane that this kind of Bronze Age predatory pattern would work so well in a sophisticated country such as England, but that’s exactly why it worked: Noticing patterns is now derided as “stereotyping.”
