Underage white girls preyed on in Derbyshire, UK

16th July 2012

We were warned that the recent convictions in Rochdale for the grooming of underage white girls were the tip of the iceberg.  The latest convictions, in Derby, UK, of five men, four of whom are not Muslim, will be seized upon as evidence that it is not only a British Pakistani community matter.  Derbyshire Police nailed its colours to the mast in a statement to that effect (see below).

Anthony Lambert - Guilty

This is true, but a close look at the accounts in all UK major newspapers show that the story released must have been syndicated – The Huffington Post UK’s story for example is identical to that in The Independent and both were probably got from Derbyshire Police.

Mark Adaoui - guilty

There was no coverage of what went on in the trial, (unlike that of the British Pakistani males, some of whom behaved atrociously and blamed the girls they abused for leading them on),  so are we meant to assume that these accused were at least silent and admitted what they had done, and were even, perhaps, willing to accept the consequences?

John Shaw - guilty

But what a disingenuous remark from Det Supt Andy Stokes of Derbyshire Police!  The Independent  quoted him as saying – “It is important that people realise that men who abuse children come from all walks of life, backgrounds and cultures.” 

Stafan Godfrey - guilty

But he is hardly comparing like with like, is he?  We are not told in the police statement whether the men paid a third party in order to have sex with these children (although the Guardian does say that one man paid one of the girls £30.00), whether the crimes were opportunistic or calculated, but it would have been mentioned had the men been members of an organised ring.  Unlike the molesters in Rochdale, the guilty men were not known to each other, although the girls knew each other.

There is no photograph of Ijaz Ahmad, also found guilty

Neither are we told whether the group had a ringleader (the Rochdale gang had one in Ahmed Shabeer, and, when found guilty of the grooming charges he was awaiting sentencing on multiple counts of sexual abuse of another child).  A ringleader spurs the group into action and organises what the group does.  These men, we are led to believe, acted independently of each other.  There was no systematic and organised trafficking, ie transporting the girls from one place to another for the purpose of prostitution.

Sexual predation on children is heinous regardless of who perpetrates it, but for cold-blooded objectification of their victims, the Rochdale gang and those like them, who set out to groom vulnerable children and enslave them take the crime to a new low.  I still argue that this is because of the way in which they objectify all women and children and particularly white women and children.

I am glad that the predators from Derby were arrested, charged and found guilty but I hope that the police will not be distracted from prosecuting the crime in all communities, and particularly those where the status of women and girls is so much less than that of men.


Post script:  I wonder what Detective Chief Superintendent Andy Stokes would have to say about this:

ITV News in the Anglia region in the UK reported on 15th July that four  males were arrested and charged with the abduction of a 13 year old girl in Ipswich, Suffolk, UK.  The men were named as:

31 year old Mohamed Sheikh, of Seaton Point, London,

28-year-old Surin Uddin, of St Matthews Row, London,

38-year-old Ali Hamza, of Chingford Road, London,

46-year-old Abdul Hammed, of Wellington Street, Ipswich

All the offences are alleged to have taken place last week in Ipswich and the alleged perpetrators are due in court on 16th July.  Let us see how widely their trial is reported.
