    Rotherham child abuse report: 1,400 children subjected to 'appalling' sexual exploitation over 16-years


    The horrifying cost of official failure to confront widespread child sexual exploitation has been revealed in a damning report detailing how abusers exploited 1,400 children from a single town over 16 years.

    Gangs of Asian men groomed, abused and trafficked vulnerable children while police were contemptuous of the victims and the council ignored what was going on, in spite of years of warnings and reports about what was happening.

    Despite what the inquiry head called a ?blatant? failure of leadership at the Labour-run council, nobody will be sacked or face inquiries into their inaction.
    ...
    Professor Alexis Jay, who wrote the report, said she found ?children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone?.

    It said that three reports from 2002 to 2006 highlighted the extent of child exploitation and links to wider criminality but nothing was done, with the findings either suppressed or simply ignored.

    Life in an English Town Where Abuse of Young Girls Flourished

    ROTHERHAM, England ? It started on the bumper cars in the children?s arcade of the local shopping mall. Lucy was 12, and a group of teenage boys, handsome and flirtatious, treated her and her friends to free rides and ice cream after school.

    Over time, older men were introduced to the girls, while the boys faded away. Soon they were getting rides in real cars, and were offered vodka and marijuana. One man in particular, a Pakistani twice her age and the leader of the group, flattered her and bought her drinks and even a mobile phone. Lucy liked him...
