How Did The Rotherham Child Abuse Scandal Get So Big?

I suspect nearly everybody feels like I do, about the size of the  child abuse scandal that has been revealed in the report by Professor Alexis Jay. This BBC article fully reports on the scandal.

C was always sweeping up the mess from child abuse, but she never dealt with anything on this scale. However, she would have her views on what needed to be done and like me would be questioning, why the abuse was allowed to get so large and carried on for so long, when it appears it had been reported to the authorities.

The BBC report publishes this.

The report found: “Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so.”

If a particular group of men are thought to be responsible, surely they should be restricted in their movements. Or perhaps they should only be allowed on the street, if accompanied by a responsible female.

We’d probably get called racist, but somehow we must stop child abuse on what is an industrial scale.

I also feel that a lot of social workers, council employees and police should be given the sack.
