Time and time again the authorities over here in the UK have let the children of this country down, the local government, police, social workers, schools, clergy and all we hear again and again is that they are learning the lessons of their mistakes, but in the meantime thousands of children are being abused.

Just how many mistakes do they need to make?

trigger warning!

Hundreds of children have been systematically raped, beaten and sex trafficked in a northern English town for more than 12 years. And it is still going on, a government commissioned report says.

The city's government recently made the inquiry's report available on its website.
Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham (1997 2013)

"The first of these reports was effectively suppressed, because some senior officers disbelieved the data it contained," the report said.
Social services managers downplayed the problem. Officials thought reports were exaggerated. Law enforcement gave it little importance.
"Police gave no priority to (child sexual abuse), regarding many child victims with contempt and failing to act on their abuse as a crime," the report said.
By the time awareness of the problem increased by 2009, thinly staffed social service workers were overwhelmed by the number of potential victims.

it is hard to tell where the incompetence and ignorance end and the evil begins.

CSA is an institution as old as prostitution.

The skeptic in me say the police overlooking it had less to do with incompetence and ignorance and more to do with culpability and complicitness.

Deep investigations should be made into each person who "overlooked" this for any reason.
