Yet again, the cries of the innocent are ignored

As was the case with Baby P, evidence of children being abused in Rotherham was treated with contempt by social services The words that stand out in Professor Alexis Jay’s report into child abuse in Rotherham are these: "Nobody could say 'we didn’t know.’ " ... [Published Telegraph - Aug 26 2014]

Quotes

"The landlord of the premises has now been located and informed that the property was being used as a brothel. He has been made aware of the offence under Section 34 of the Sexual Offences Act 1967 of letting premises for use as a brothel."
He wrote: "I want to stress that I am fully committed to my job which I believe is one of the most important there is - being responsible for the safeguarding and protection of children."
...when necessary, the social workers, with full support from the police and the courts, are now also taking record numbers of children into state "care for what too often appear to be inadequate or even blatantly fabricated reasons. This can be just as much a crime against humanity and a travesty of justice as what we’ve been learning about in Rotherham; not least because, as I hear in new cases every week, children unhappily removed from loving families are often subjected, while in "care", to abuse that is much worse than anything alleged against their parents. When, last week, I was asked by my editor "how can we hope to see this mess cleared up?", I could only reply pessimistically that the whole culture of our "child protection" system has become so corrupted that it is hard to see how it can ever be returned to some semblance of decency and humanity. The "good" social workers of old have largely been driven out to be replaced by heartless, jargon-spouting zealots who are the last people who should be involved in the life of any family. Few things have shocked me more than the way the police have become such unquestioning accomplices of this cruel system. There may be a glimmer of hope in the realisation by Lord Justice Munby, our top family court judge, that some start can be made on clearing out the Augean stables by exposing more of the work of those ultra-secretive courts to public scrutiny."
"There is a culture of secrecy because names are routinely not made public. In other cases, where doctors have been named, they are able to call a halt to their own disciplinary case."
