Re: Child grooming gang found guilty

I don’t believe anyone is saying that, but some are saying because most grooming gangs are Asian, then most of the people committing sexual offences against under-age children are are Asian, which is not factually correct.

As Naz Shah said
Quote:
Yes Pakistani men are disproportionately involved in grooming gangs and this particular model of abuse. And no that is not a racist statement. Neither is it racist to say that when it comes to wider child abuse nearly 90 per cent of those convicted and on the sex offenders register are white men.

Re: Child grooming gang found guilty

Yup, I read the article. The stats for the sex offenders register are broadly in line with the racial profile of the country. However, there are a lot of people on the register who are not considered dangerous to the public at large. Without wishing to diminish the seriousness of what they’ve done in any way, the register is mostly populated by people who have downloaded illegal porn, exposed themselves in public or, more seriously, have committed actual abuse yet within their own family setting. There is an obvious scale of increasing seriousness when it comes to sexual offences just as there is with any other sort of crime, and the activities of these gangs, in the premeditated targeting and grooming of vulnerable girls who are strangers to them, is obviously vastly more serious in terms of risk to the public.

I don’t think anyone is saying that Asians are more likely to be sex offenders, but the statistics do justify at least asking the question and doing the research: why is there a particular issue with these serious sexual offences within our Asian community? That is not a racist sentiment, it is a prudent line of enquiry in the pursuit of public safety.

I agree with you on that.

Re: Child grooming gang found guilty

Not just the UK.

Quote:
The President of Finland has expressed his 'shock and disgust' after police identified more suspects in connection with a foreign grooming gang targeting children in a town in the north of the country.
Police suspect 16 foreign-born men of rape or other sexual abuses of girls aged between ten and 15 in Oulu, northern Finland, adding another four men to the investigation today.
...
'It is unacceptable that some asylum seekers, and even those who have been granted asylum, have brought evil here and created insecurity.'
...
Statistics Finland says around 1,200 cases of sexual abuse of minors are reported to the police each year, and that foreigners were involved in 18 percent of the cases that came to trial last year.
