But don’t worry, the most important thing is taken care of:
Almost 100 police officers under investigation for “potential misconduct” in Rotherham. Why is this taking so long? Senior officers should have been sacked immediately; only when police are accountable to the public, will they truly be held to account.
Why does this keep happening?
One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.

The number of investigations into the police response to allegations of child abuse and Muslim grooming gangs in Rotherham has increased to nearly 100, the police watchdog has revealed.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said they had identified “potential misconduct”, and at the beginning of April, they were overseeing 98 investigations into the response of South Yorkshire Police, compared with 62 at the same point last year.
In a statement released Wednesday, they add that 33 current and former police officers were still under investigation, with a further 45 completed inquiries.
Among the investigations is one into former South Yorkshire police and crime commissioner Shaun Wright for allegedly committing perjury when giving evidence to the home affairs select committee in 2014.
The police have been accused, in a government report, of ignoring sex abuse claims because of political correctness and fear of accusation of racism, as well as allegedly blaming some child victims.
It was found that 1,400 non-Muslim girls were groomed, raped, trafficked, and drugged in the town between 1997 and 2013 while those in authority failed to act.
“We will publish an over-arching report; combining the outcomes of our investigations when they are all complete,” IOPC Acting Deputy Director of Major Investigations, Steve Noonan, explained.
“Our aim is to not only highlight any conduct matters relating to individual officers but, crucially, to share our understanding of why such serious allegations often weren’t investigated and how this can be avoided in the future.”
He added: “We are supporting 53 survivors and a number of complainants through a very difficult period, when they are also being asked to give evidence to the National Crime Agency to support their investigations into the terrible crimes committed in Rotherham.”
The investigations are part of Operation Linden, the second largest independent investigation ever carried out by the IOPC, with only the inquiry into South Yorkshire Police’s conduct over the Hillsborough disaster larger.
It has a dedicated team of 35 staff who have analysed more than 15,000 documents and pieces of evidence, some of which date to the 1990s, the statement reveals.
Officers in the force were sent an internal memo telling them that “in most cases the sex is consensual”, despite many of the victims being children below the age of consent.
Some of the victims were just 11 years old, and one is known to have given birth at just 14. One girl claims police found her in cars with her abusers and that she was forced to collect the morning after pill multiple times a week after being raped.
Justified by Islam:
Sexual assault occurs in all cultures, but only in Islam does it have divine sanction. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
“Four Burton men are jailed for total of 17 years for exploiting young girls,” by Helen Kreft, Burton Mail, April 20, 2018:
Four Burton men who sexually exploited young girls to satisfy their own adolescent lust have been sent to a young offenders’ institute for a total of 17 years.
They abused five girls who were aged just 13 and 14 at the time. The four men had pleaded guilty to a total of 22 offences at a previous court hearing in February.
Taiyab Hussain, 19, and Mohammed Hizar Rizwan, 18, picked the girls up by car on two occasions before getting them to perform sex acts. The men went on to ‘swap’ victims the next day.
Shaheem Ratyal, 19, later abused one of the victims, and Sohail Raja Ali,19, abused a fourth victim, who was just 13 at the time. Stafford Crown Court has heard they treated the girls ‘like trophies’.
A fifth girl had been involved, police said, but she did not provide evidence to support the prosecution in court and no details of her involvement were given at the hearing when the men appeared to be sentenced.
The men were caught when one of the young victims later saw a video about the dangers of grooming after being encouraged to watch it by her father. Afterwards she revealed what had happened to her.
During sentencing, Judge Jonathan Gosling, said: “It is clear the girls meant nothing to them whatsoever. They were simply an agency to satisfy their adolescent lust of these men. One girl had only just passed her 13th birthday.”
But due to the young ages of the defendants, he added: “They are not predatory paedophiles; they were schoolboys.”
A charge of collective conspiracy to abuse against the men was dropped.
Judge Gosling said: “There was a joint interest in meeting and sexually abusing these young girls.”
Hussain, of Shobnall Street, worked at St George’s Park before he resigned after his arrest. He admitted two counts of sexual activity with a child, two counts of causing a child to engage in sexual activity and two charges of possession of an indecent photograph of a child. He has been sentenced to five years in a young offenders’ institution.
Rizwan, of Derby Road, admitted four counts of sexual activity with a child, one of causing a child to engage in sexual activity and a charge of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. He has been sentenced to four years and four months.
Ratyal, of Grange Street, who had aspirations to become a teacher, admitted one count of sexual activity with a child and five counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. He was sentenced to four years and four months.
Ali, of Weston Park Avenue, admitted three counts of sexual activity with a child and one count of causing a child to engage in sexual activity. He has been sentenced to four years….
