The story is here.
A victim of Rotherham’s child sex abuse scandal confronted a man she says groomed her – but was left shocked when she was the one arrested.
The woman was shocked when she saw the man walking through the town’s centre on Friday and decided to challenge him over the allegations.
But she was tackled by two police officers and pushed up against a wall during her ‘thuggish’ arrest, a witness has said.
A damning report released last month detailed how 1,400 children were sexually exploited in the area over a 16-year period.
The Times reported that a woman whose case is being investigated by authorities – but has not yet been interviewed – was arrested after tackling a man she says groomed her when she was 15.
A witness accused the police of ‘acting like insensitive thugs’, telling the paper: ‘A police van came and six male officers piled out.
‘Two of them dragged her away, handcuffed her, put her against a wall and then shoved her into the back of the van.’
South Yorkshire Police told today how they had been hoping to interview the woman in the weeks before the arrest, after they were told of the historic allegations by another organisation.
But they only realised that she was the woman they had been trying to speak to after her arrest, and have now released her on bail.
After her treatment at the hands of officers, the woman has been reluctant to talk to police and her complaint against the man is therefore yet to be officially recorded. ………
‘The woman was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offences. …..
…. Public anger over the abuse has been fanned by the refusal of Shaun Wright, who was Rotherham’s councillor in charge of children’s services during the scandal and is now the area’s Police and Crime Commissioner, to resign.
Obviously, my first question would be, why is this guy still in the position he’s in?
Clearly, regardless of his intent and effort, or even perhaps, lack thereof, Mr. Wright failed in his duties. And, as the Police and Crime Commissioner, he’s failing, again. The right and honorable thing to do is to step down and let someone more capable and competent step up. But, if he won’t step down, the people need to remove him.
My second question is this ……
Where are all of the left of center women’s and children’s rights advocates? Why isn’t the UK suddenly inundated from protesters around the world protesting the deplorable treatment of these innocents at the hands of these foreign animals?
There are, of course, many, many more questions to ask, but, those were what I would consider the most immediate.
Other questions would include things like, how did it become against the law to confront an abuser simply because the abuser was of a different race or ethnicity?
You know, if these things were confined to the only the UK, I would say, ‘that’s the UK’s problem, they should sort it out.’ But, I don’t believe these problems are confined to the UK. In one form or another, it is a plague upon Western civilization and we need to fix these things, and quickly.
