Police knew they were targeting Birmingham schools five years ago but did not alert public
29.06.2015. Confidential documents also show West Midlands force was concerned about community tensions because of link to Pakistani men, reports the Birmingham Mail (links in original):
West Midlands Police knew five years ago that Asian grooming gangs were targeting children outside schools across the city - but failed to make the threat public.
Documents obtained by the Birmingham Mail show the force were aware pupils were at risk of child sexual exploitation (CSE) back in 2010.
The confidential report, obtained under a Freedom of Information Act, also shows police were worried about community tensions if the abuse from predominantly Pakistani grooming gangs was made public.
The West Midlands Police document entitled Problem Profile, Operation Protection is from March 2010 and highlights how grooming had been directed specifically at schools and children’s homes.
In one heavily redacted passage, entitled ‘Schools’, it states: “In (redacted) a teacher at a (redacted) that a group of Asian males were approaching pupils at the school gate and grooming them. Strong anecdotal evidence shows this MO (modus operandi) is being used across the force.”
The Birmingham Mail is unaware of any police public appeals or warnings from that time.
The 2010 report also reveals children’s homes were being targeted by gangs who used victims to target other girls. It states: “Operations in other forces have identified an MO where offenders use a young girl in a children’s home to target and groom other residents on their behalf.
“This has also been evidenced within the force in (redacted) and (redacted). The girl’s motivation to recruit new victims is often that the provision of new girls provides her a way to escape the cycle of abuse.”
The 2010 report said police had identified a potential 139 victims, 78 per cent of whom were white while more than half were aged 13 to 15. Half of all victims lived within parental homes, while 41 per cent lived in care.
The report said of the 75 grooming suspects identified, a large proportion were from a Pakistani background and a significant proportion were likely to be from a Muslim background.
Almost half lived in Birmingham, with thirty per cent from east Birmingham.
The report said: “The vast majority of identified suspects (79 per cent) are Asian (59 of 75), 12 per cent are white and 5 per cent are African Caribbean. 62 per cent of Asian suspects are of Pakistani origin. Pakistani males account for half of all identified suspects in the force (37 of 75).”
The report added: “Offenders are likely to have a history of previous sexual offences, as well as a wide range of other offences and convictions.’’
Victims lived across the force area, on every local policing unit patch, including two clusters identified in Dudley and Walsall.
Multiple offenders were also involved in the abuse, the report said. “A high level of organised criminality has now been evidenced both across the force area and regionally, with multiple offenders working together to identify, groom and abuse victims.
“The organised nature is evidenced in many ways, for example by offenders targeting victims on multiple OCUs many miles from where the offenders live themselves, or in the number of offenders jointly abusing victims in specific offences.
“In a number of organised groups victims are forced into prostitution and high levels of intimidation and force are used to keep the victims compliant.”
In another heavily redacted section about grooming in Coventry the report said that an organised crime gang was ‘‘actively grooming and abusing victims across the force in Coventry hotel rooms.’’
The report also highlighted potential ‘community tensions’ which the CSE problems could lead to.
It said: “The predominant offender profile of Pakistani Muslim males... combined with the predominant victim profile of white females has the potential to cause significant community tensions.”
It added: “There is a potential for a backlash against the vast majority of law abiding citizens from Asian/Pakistani communities from other members of the community believing their children have been exploited.
“These factors, combined with an EDL protest in Dudley in April and a general election in May could notably increase community tension.
“Police will be criticised if it appears we have not safeguarded vulnerable children, investigated offences and prosecuted offenders.”
The conclusions of the report said that the authorities needed to improve its care of missing care home children and added: “There is strong evidence in the vast majority of all cases that the victims are enticed, stupefied or controlled by alcohol and a mixture of controlled drugs.
“The victims are already suffering from Health Conditions relating to their chaotic lifestyle and exploitation (Pregnancy, termination, STDs, neglect, and physical and psychological problems).
“There is evidence that victims are being moved between LPUs and other Forces, sometimes as a result of intervention by children’s services but also by offenders exploiting them. There are definite links to organised prostitution with 10 per cent of victims being linked through warnings, convictions or intelligence.”
In an October 2009 police report obtained by the Birmingham Mail, a lack of trust between police and social workers was highlighted and some of their unsympathetic attitudes to vulnerable runaways.

«They haven’t even bothered to ask for my side of affairs»

HonestThinking comments: I find it thought-provoking that the secular religion of Political Correctness is so utterly devoid of grace and mercy. While serious crimes often tend to be dealt with in a lenient way, a silly remark is enough to earn the wrath of the Priesthood. 'Sinners' who realize their folly, repent, and ask for for forgiveness, will receive little more than scorn and ridicule (except, of course, for the occasional interview where an excommunicated heretic is magnanimously given the opportunity to state his or her views, before being assigned to oblivion). Even so, the elite is keen to remind all the rest of us that they represent not only Progress, but also the forces of Good. Go figure!
