MANCHESTER GROOMING GANG SCANDAL: Young Girls Groomed In Plain Sight

Summary: 

This week saw the revelation of yet another grooming gang scandal, another City added to an ever growing list as the gang rape epidemic continues to sweep across England.

Following a 2 year inquiry commissioned by Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham, into the historic failings of police and social workers, a report published this week concluded that vulnerable girls in care were groomed in “plain sight”.

At least 57 young girls were thought to be exploited by a paedophile network of around 100 suspected perpetrators based in South Manchester in the 2000s.   The gang hooked their victims on drugs, groomed, and sexually abused them.   Victoria Agoglia aged 15 died after being injected with heroin.

These rape gangs are time after time left free to roam our streets and in this case it has been claimed officers were told to “find other ethnicities to investigate”.

The report added that officers were aware of many community issues around policing in South Manchester in 2002 and 2003.   It would appear the fear of race relations and community cohesion were seemingly more important issues than upholding the rule of law and providing protection to young vulnerable girls.
