JUSTICE AT LAST: Police Officers Face Investigation Over Rotherham Child Rape Failings

  • 3

Senior police officers in South Yorkshire are set to face an investigation by the Independent Office For Police Conduct (IOPC) over their failures to tackle the child sexual abuse crisis in Rotherham over more than a decade.

The senior command team will be asked why high-ranking officers failed to act on reports of extremely serious child sexual abuse cases.

It has been alleged by witnesses and victims that through police “facilitated” the abuse and even that the force had prioritised ‘car crime’ over the major gang rape scandal.

Writing to abuse survivors, the IOPC said: “We are extending our investigation and will be looking into the actions of senior officers who were in charge of the force at the relevant time.”

“The main allegation within the complaint is that senior officers from SYP failed in their statutory duty to protect children between 1999 and 2011.”

Jane Senior, who ran an outreach program for child abuse victims, told Sky News that police officers have known about the abuse for over a decade but have still not been held to account.

After making a complaint to the police force on behalf of Dr Angie Heal, who worked for South Yorkshire Police so could not complain herself, Mrs Senior said: “I know that from at least 2001 that senior officers were aware of this and we sit here now in 2018 and actually who has been held accountable?”

Dr Heal told Sky News: “I could not believe the lack of response.

“I saw the circulation list and that two senior officers received my reports. What did they do with them? Did they tell the Chief Constable about it? And if not, why not?

“These were really, really serious crimes against children. It can’t get much more serious than this.”

Dr Heal added: “I remember one conversation with a senior officer who said: ‘it’s all very awful but our priorities are set by government and they are burglary and car crime’.”

Reports into the Rotherham abuse scandal have suggested that up to 1,400 children were abused by men of prominently Pakistani descent.

The latest statement by the police watchdog that they will investigate South Yorkshire Police will begin to help serve justice for the victims, but will likely not get even near to finally addressing all of the police failures over the past two decades.

Speaking exclusively to Kipper Central, Nathan Ryding – the Chairman of Young Independence, UKIP’s youth wing, said: “I’m glad an investigation has finally begun, however, I am interested in seeing the outcome as this will determine how effective and useful our police service will be in the future.

“To blame the government for the priorities is ridiculous, they may be the priorities but as the police, you are supposed to deal with all crime committed in the UK. This is 100% political correctness and it has to be stopped.

“Children need the utmost protection in today’s society and we in UKIP need to put child protection at the top of our list. Let’s save our future generations!”

    About time these sickos who have let this happen have got away with it for too long. no stone should be left unturned.

    It’s good to see something being done, but this barely scratches the surface considering the duration and spread of these crimes throughout the country.
    Until we see hundreds of senior police officers being taken to court for gross dereliction of duty, all the evidence of their negligence being exposed in court, and severe punishments being imposed, including loss of pension, justice will not have been done. And the same applies to all the others involved in this scandal who preferred to turn a blind eye through moral cowardice. In the case of muslim councillors in certain towns who did nothing, their complicity with, and protection of, criminal co-religionists should mean that no muslim is allowed to hold office in that area again.
    Heinous crimes call for drastic measures.
    Harsh examples need to be made to deter others. So far, nowhere near enough has been done and they are even releasing the scum from prison before their sentences are served. Mass deportations are needed.

    I believe that it was South Yorkshire police who were responsible for the national disgrace that was the Hillsboro’ disaster.
    For me South Yorkshire police should be disbanded and the arrangements for policing that region should be organised starting from scratch.
    How can anyone have any confidence or belief in an organisation like South Yorkshire police?

    So its all the fault of Government ! If this is the fact, then we should demand an in depth, independent enquiry into the value for money of Chief Constables and the new Commissioners, and indeed the Home Office itself ! What was once the best Police Force in the world, has descended into the slime of mediocrity, with less Government control needed, and urgent action is required while old time Police values are remembered ! At the same time, we need more Police and less Police cars ! Also correction to Police pension entitlement for the family partner needs to be sorted out. A BIG JOB FOR UKIP TO WORK ON !

    We want Tommy Robinson out of jail, WE also want justice for all those poor children who have been abused by these rape gangs, and any cover up done by the police or anyone else they must be dealt with no more cover ups.
