UK young children victims of sexual gang abuse: Study
… by Press TV, Tehran
[ Editors Note: One of the warm fuzzy feelings in raising kids is the times where they make huge efforts to emulate what they see adults doing that they admire and aspire to. Unfortunately this is not one of those cases.
We have to ask ourselves where kids could have gotten the idea that gang raping is cool, certainly not from any school books or old Playboys laying around the house.
This is an offshoot not only of child sex abuse by adults, but the celebrities involved which has gotten so much media attention in Britain, whether it be in the church, media or entertainment circles. But those inside the issue will tell you that such abuse in political circles in not covered in corporate media. Why not?
VT has written about the political aspect of kidnapped children who find their way into being party favors for inside the beltway entertainment for political high rollers. The Bush administration was over the top with them.
Yet, which is not unusual, our phone did not ring one time with any corporate media, or anyone else for that matter, wanting to ‘know more’. Like the black out on Israeli espionage and the stand down on prosecuting it, a similar ban exists on systemic child abuse in the nation’s political circles.
All that said, this story out of Britain…is sad and shocking. It reveals a decadent society in it’s latter stages. And one has to ask, does such a society have a right to even exist, or would it maybe be better to be erase…and start all over… Jim W. Dean ]

According to the two-year investigation, conducted by Bedfordshire University for the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England, young children are abused by offenders.
The study focused on the “chilling” abuse in gang-associated contexts, but researchers warned that the problem was “widespread” across England.
“We have found shocking and profoundly distressing evidence of sexual assault, including rape, being carried out by young people against other children and young people,” said deputy children’s commissioner Sue Berelowitz.
The research also suggested that the scale of sexual assaults indicates a “deep malaise” within the British society that needs to be addressed.
A recent report by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA), entitled “The Foundations of Abuse,” found that British children are still not safe from sexual abuse in institutional settings such as schools, care homes and churches.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) also warned in October that child victims of sexual abuse in Britain do not get the support they need to give evidence in courts. The charity said less than 25 percent of the 23,000 child abuse cases in the UK last year resulted in prosecution.
