Police in the United Kingdom have reportedly ignored victims of Muslim grooming gangs, but are now prosecuting a young man after he reportedly touched a girl’s arm or waist in an effort to make a friend.
Britain is often the butt of many jokes when it comes to the treatment sex crimes.
Grooming gang victims were often denied justice due to the ethnicity of the bulk of their abusers.
British authorities had known about many of the grooming gang scandals but refrained from acting upon complaints against their rapists for the sake of politics–or, more precisely, due to political correctness.
Telford was one of the dozen towns/cities across the UK where grooming gangs were–and continue to be–active.
According to The Mirror, one such abuse victim, Jennifer, a pseudonym, claims she was sexually abused from the age of eleven for a period spanning almost a decade.
Jennifer claims she was abused by over 500 men, where she was ‘hawked around like a piece of meat.’
Despite her lengthy ordeals, police decided to arrest her instead.
Jennifer explains, “when I told the police, they told me I’d chosen my lifestyle. I asked to make a statement because I’d been raped and beaten by so many men and I wanted it to stop.
“An officer said, ‘You’re a common prostitute. Don’t you think that comes with the job?’ He said a jury would never believe I was a victim of abuse.
“Instead, I ended up in the dock. I starved so I had money for the court fines because I was terrified of going to jail. I was basically paying to be raped.”
The Mirror reports:
She was gang raped, often in her school uniform, trafficked and held at gunpoint. Her nightmare left her so broken she attempted suicide.
At just 16, she feared for her life as one rapist battered her and shoved gravel in her mouth to silence her cries.
For four years, until she was 19, she fell under the control of a man who hawked her around like a piece of meat.
Jennifer claims police refused to intervene and repeatedly arrested her for prostitution from the age of 16 to 19, despite her plea she was being exploited.
And not one of her abusers was brought to justice.
On the other hand, however, a nineteen-year-old boy described as ‘shy and awkward’ is facing jailed after being convicted of two counts of sexual assault.
Jamie Griffiths had previously Googled “how to make a friend” and signed up to social media pages in an effort to keep his loneliness at bay.
Griffiths twice attempted to make contact with the girl in isolated places, but struggled to get any words out.
Griffiths admits to have touched the girl on what he believes to be her arm.
The girl was touched on her arm and waist, but is adamant Griffiths would have grabbed her breast had she not moved out the way.
The girl believes the interactions ruined her chances to gain entry to top flight university, Oxford.
According to The Daily Mail, Griffiths told the hearing:
Griffiths, who had been volunteering at a Barnado’s charity shop, told the hearing: ‘My intention was to make a friend. All my friends had left so I was lonely I just wanted to speak to someone.
‘She was walking towards me and I recognised her and I knew that she was a student at the school, I didn’t say anything but I really wanted to – the words just didn’t come out. I touched her but I believed that it was the arm I was touching.
‘I smiled at her, I was just trying to be friendly. I tried to get her attention and she ignored me. Touching someone’s arm to get their attention I would have thought was normal. I was looking for a friend.
However, the prosecutor believed, “he intended to touch her breast area and was waiting for her.”
Magistrates added, “the complainant’s evidence was very clear, logical and without embellishment. We can think of no motivation for you to touch the victim other than sexual.”
The magistrates went on, “Had she not taken evasive action the assault was likely to have been even more serious. The first assault can be recognized as opportunistic however there is more evidence of premeditation in the second.”
Despite recent convictions in grooming gang cases, abuses are believed to date back as far as the 1970s.
In a previous grooming gang scandal, police arrested a female rape victim for drunk and disorderly conduct after her abusers discarded her – instead of the actual accused rapists.
In another, a father, desperately attempting to save her daughter from the clutches of her gang rapists, was arrested for breaching the peace.
These two stories in the past week illustrate a gaping double standard inspired by devotion to political correctness, which, unfortunately, has real life – and devastating – consequences.
