Rotherham Council child snatchers allowed 1,400 children to be raped and abused

An independent report commissioned by Rotherham Borough Council into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham from 1997 to 2013 has found that the council covered up and facilitated the rape and abuse of as many as 1,400 children as young as 11 years old by Pakistani and Kashmiri paedophiles.

This is the same council that took two foster children off a couple because they were UKIP members and the social workers didn't agree with their politics. The very same people and their predecessors allowed 1,400 children be subjected to rape and assault over a 16 year period by Pakistani and Kashmiri paedophiles because they didn't want to be accused of racism. Nobody at Rotherham Council has been punished for this and there are no plans to punish anyone.

This level of neglect has surely got to be criminal, why aren't the police prosecuting? Could it possibly be because the Police & Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire Police was Cabinet Member for Children's Services at Rotherham Borough Council for five years while this was going on? Still, he's said sorry. That makes up for 1,400 destroyed lives.
