Child Sex Attacks In Britain

According to the DailyMail, a child is raped every 20 minutes within the United Kingdom. Equivalent to 444 attacks a week, according to shocking police figures released. About 23,000 children were reported victims in England and Wales during 2010/11 but fewer than 10 per cent of cases ended in a conviction. There were 4,973 alleged victims aged ten and under, including 1,472 younger than six.

The statistics, obtained by the NSPCC in a freedom of information request, cover rape, incest and child prostitution across all 43 police forces in England and Wales – the figures shown on this map include sex offences against boys and girls in 2011 And six times as many reported offences were committed against girls as against boys. The statistics, obtained by the NSPCC in a freedom of information request, cover rape, incest and child prostitution across all 43 police forces in England and Wales. The charity said a major effort was needed to protect children and boost conviction rates. More than a third of all sex crimes are committed against children, figures showed.

More than a third of all sex crimes are committed against children with more than 60 child sex offences reported to police every day. Overall, there were 54,982 sex offences last year, including 23,097 against children, the figures showed. Most of the children (14,819) were aged between 11 and 17, including 8,749 aged 13 to 15. Britain’s biggest force, the Metropolitan Police, received the highest number of reports (3,420), followed by the forces in Thames Valley (1,264) and West Yorkshire (1,170). Jon Brown, head of the NSPCC’s sexual abuse programme, said: ‘A concentrated effort has to be made if we are to start reducing this distressing level of offences, many of which are committed on extremely young and helpless children. ‘When you have a situation where more than 60 children are being sexually abused every day, something is very wrong.

Australian Research suggests that:

  • Between 1 in 6 males are sexually abused before the age of 16.
  • 1 in 4 females are sexually abused before the age of 16.
  • Prevalence rates can vary, depending on the definition of sexual abuse used and the population participating in the research. For example, reported rates of male childhood sexual abuse range between 3 – 76%. This range takes into account various studies including;
  • 3 – 17% – Systematic review of 55 studies between 2002-2009 from 24 countries not including Australia or New Zealand
  • 8 – 30% – Various international studies, including a meta analysis of 22 countries
  • 4 – 76%  – Meta analysis of 166 studies of males sexually abused in childhood
  • 3 – 29% – Analysis of 21 countries
  • 4 – 31%- Australian study

Research suggests that:

  • Over 30% of confirmed reports of child sexual abuse involve male victims.
  • Most sexual abuse of males begins before puberty, typically around 10 years
  • Boys younger than six are at greater risk of abuse by family and acquaintances
  • Boys older than 12 years face an increased risk of abuse by strangers
  • Risk of sexual assault declines for adult men relative to adult women
  • Threats of force and physical harm increased with age and male perpetration

Sibling/adolescent perpetrated abuse

Research has shown that sibling incest has been estimated to be at least 5 times more prevalent than parent-child incest.

Female perpetrated sexual abuse

Female perpetrated sexual abuse is thought to be a relatively rare-phenomenon compared to male perpetrated sexual abuse, with research suggesting that 80% of male child sexual abuse is perpetrated by males. However, studies suggest approximately 2% of females and 20% of males are abused by a female. In relation to the sexual abuse of males by females research indicates that:

  • Males are less likely to identify sexual contact they had with an adult woman, when they were a child, as sexual abuse.
  • In over 90% of reported cases, females use persuasion rather than actual or threatened force when committing an offence of sexual abuse.
  • Up to one third of boys who identify as being abused, say curiosity led to their participation in sexual contact with older females.

Comparing male and female experiences

The table below provides a useful snapshot of the prevalence and characteristics of sexual abuse of males and females taken from a large scale study published in 2005.

Type of sexual abuse Men % (n=7970)   Women % (n=9367)  
Touched in a sexual way 13.2 22.5
Forced to touch an adult 8.1 7.9
Attempted sexual intercourse 7.3 8.6
Completed sexual intercourse 6.7 5.6
Any type of childhood sexual abuse 16.0 24.7

Note: Although females are more likely to be sexually abused than males (24.7% to 16% respectively); in this study there are a higher number of males than females reporting ‘completed sexual intercourse’

Sex of the perpetrator   Men % (n=7970)   Women % (n=9367)  
Male Only 51.0 91.9
Female Only 20.8 2.1

Organised Peadophilia

A child is reported missing every three minutes within the United Kingdom. Yet, how many are recovered? Truth be told, not enough. How often do you open up a newspaper in the morning only to discover a three year olds dismembered body was discovered, allowing for the authorities to uncover hundreds more mutilated, tortured and sexually abused remains of little children? Hardly ever. Such press would often encourage the overall support and demand of action from the public to their government. Although one can easily arrive at the enquiry, how can individuals governing religion, countries or the economy evade the law for such extended periods in time without
inside cooperation? The probability is highly unlikely, yet not impossible.
450 individuals made formal complaints about Saville, involving 28 police locations throughout the country and among them are 34 alleged rapes. They spanned a period of 54 years between 1955 and 2009 when Savile was 82. The abuses were 23 children and young people on BBC premises and at 14 hospitals and at least one hospice. More than 70% of his victims were under 18 and one as young as eight. Yet, only after his death was the information published on a global scale.
In fact, on average 12,175 children, ranging from 0 – 19 years of age, die each year in the United States from an unintentional injury. Males had higher injury death rates in this particular study than females. The death rate for males was almost two times the amount than females. Also, males had a higher injury death rate in comparison to females in all childhood age groups. Injuries due to transportation were the leading cause of death for children. The highest death rates were among occupants of motor vehicles in traffic. There were also a substantial number of pedestrian and pedal cyclist deaths among children. Combining all unintentional injury deaths among those between 0 – 19 years of age, motor vehicle traffic–related deaths were the leading cause. The leading causes of injury death differed by age group.
For children less than 1 year of age, two–thirds of injury deaths were due to suffocation. Drowning was the leading cause injury death for those 1 to 4 years of age. For children 5 to 19 years of age, the most injury deaths were due to being an occupant in a motor vehicle traffic crash.
Risk for injury death varied by race. Injury death rates were highest for American Indian and Alaska Natives and were lowest for Asian or Pacific Islanders. Overall death rates for whites and African–Americans were approximately the same. Injury death rates varied by state depending upon the cause of death. Overall, states with the lowest injury death rates were in the northeast. Fire and burn death rates were highest in some of the southern states. Death rates from transportation–related injuries were highest in some southern states and some states of the upper plains, while lowest rates occurred in states in the northeast region. For injury causes with an overall low burden, death rates greatly varied by age. The poisoning death rate for those older than 15 years of age was at least five times the rates of the younger age groups, and the suffocation death rate for infants was over 16 times the rates for all older age groups. An estimated 9.2 million children annually suffer “unintentional injuries” resulting in medical treatment. Males generally had higher nonfatal injury rates than females. Injuries due to falls were the leading cause of nonfatal injury. Each year, approximately 2.8 million children had an initial emergency department visit for injuries from a fall. For children less than 1 year of age, falls accounted for over 50% of nonfatal injuries. The majority of nonfatal injuries are from five causes. Falls was the leading cause of nonfatal injury for all age groups less than 15. For children ages 0 to 9, the next two leading causes were being stuck by or against an object and animal bites or insect stings. For children 10 to 14 years of age, the next leading causes were being struck by or against an object and overexertion. For children 15 to 19 years of age, the three leading causes of nonfatal injuries were being struck by or against an object, falls, and motor vehicle occupant injuries. Nonfatal injury rates varied by age group. Nonfatal suffocation rates were highest for those less than 1 year of age. Rates for fires or burns, and drowning were highest for children 4 years and younger. Children 1 to 4 years of age had the highest rates of nonfatal falls and poisoning. Injury rates related to motor vehicles was highest in children 15 to 19 years of age.
The prevalence of child sexual abuse is difficult to determine as it is often not reported. Professionals agree that the incidence is far greater than that which is reported to authorities. Child sexual abuse is also not uniformly defined, therefore statistics frequently vary. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau report Child Maltreatment 2010 discovered that at least 9.2% of victimized children were sexually assaulted.
Studies by David Finkelhor, Director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center, showed that 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys is a victim of child sexual abuse. Self-report studies show that 20% of adult females and 5-10% of adult males recall a childhood sexual assault or sexual abuse incident. During a one-year period in the U.S., 16% of youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized. Over the course of their lifetime, 28% of U.S. youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized. Children are most vulnerable to CSA between the ages of 7 and 13. According to a 2003 National Institute of Justice report, 3 out of 4 adolescents who have been sexually assaulted were victimized by someone they knew well (page 5). A Bureau of Justice Statistics report shows 1.6 % (sixteen out of one thousand) of children between the ages of 12-17 were victims of rape/sexual assault (page 18). A study conducted in 1986 found that 63% of women who had suffered sexual abuse by a family member also reported a rape or attempted rape after the age of 14. Recent studies in 2000, 2002, and 2005 have all concluded similar results. Children that had an experience of rape or attempted rape in their adolescent years were 13.7 times more likely to experience rape or attempted rape in their first year of college. A child, who is the victim of prolonged sexual abuse usually develops low self-esteem, a feeling of worthlessness and an abnormal or distorted view of sex. The child may become withdrawn, mistrustful of adults, and can become suicidal. Children that do not live with both parents as well as children living in homes marked by parental discord, divorce, or domestic violence, have a higher risk of being sexually abused.

Paedophilia Within Religion

According to an article within the Telegraph, the Church of England has been warned it cannot carry out a risk assessment of suspected paedophile priests in case it breaches their human rights. The warning arrived as the members of the General Synod voted to issue an unreserved expression of regret for the Anglican authorities’ failure to prevent sexual abuse in the past or even to listen to the victims accusations. Members of the Synod also supported a string of proposals designed to further expand child protection arrangements. In a joint statement, supported unanimously, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York stated: “The sexual and physical abuse that has been inflicted by these people on children, young people and adults is and will remain a deep source of grief and shame for years to come.” Although the Church’s legal officials admitted that privacy rules, enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, could make it difficult to force “credibly suspected” paedophile priests to attend a professional risk assessment. An earlier report, conducted in the wake of the child abuse scandals in the diocese of Chichester, recommended sending anyone reasonably suspected of abuse to visit professionals. Yet, a briefing paper prepared by the legal office warns that this would involve “intrusive inquiries” and would be in contradiction with Article Eight of the European Convention: The right to private and family life. Bishops would therefore be forced to compile a case against suspected priests in order to recommend them for a risk assessment. A proposal to ban priests from wearing dog collars if they have been suspended due to abuse suspicions has also caused complications after officials claimed that as the Church of England does not own the copyright to dog collars, it does not possess the right to ban their usage. “There is no distinctive uniform for Church of England clergy – a cleric in a black shirt and priest’s collar could be Anglican, Roman Catholic or Methodist, or belong to any number of small Catholic or Protestant sects that have no connection with the Church of England,” they stated. Earlier the Synod witnessed a frank admission that the Church has become so obsessed with sex that it was failing to tackle what is by far its biggest problem: the severe decline in congregations over several decades. In a paper presented to members, the Bishop of Sheffield, the Rt Rev Steven Croft, warned that discussion of how to attract individuals to church was often sidelined as issues such as gay marriage and the role of women had come to “dominate” bishops’ private meetings. Meanwhile, the Church’s man in Parliament, the Tory MP Sir Tony Baldry, warned that the Church of England faced virtual oblivion within 20 years unless it united. He told the Synod that “tribes” had been created by the “confused” debate about the role of women in the Church. He said: “To flourish in our mission to evangelise England we have to find a way of uniting.”

Cardinal Keith O’Brian blocked an independent inquiry into cases of historic sexual abuse that had support of every other bishop in Scotland. The retired Archbishop of Glasgow, Mario Conti, revealed that the Catholic Church in Scotland had planned to invite an independent academic to compile a report on each diocese’s “secret archives” and each bishop’s handling of allegations, which would then be publicised. However, Cardinal O’Brien, the president of the Bishops’ Conference, refused to co-operate and the planned inquiry was shelved, Archbishop Conti then composed a letter to be published in the Catholic newspaper the Tablet. Cardinal O’Brien was forced to resign in March after admitting “inappropriate behaviour” with priests and a seminarian, and is currently in an unknown monastery for a period of “prayer and penance” ordered by Pope Francis. In a letter defending the Catholic Church in Scotland’s handling of allegations of sexual abuse, Archbishop Conti wrote: “It was the intention of all but one member of the Bishops’ Conference to commission an independent examination of the historical cases we had on file in all of our respective dioceses and publish the results, but this was delayed by the objection of the then president of the conference; without full participation of all the dioceses the exercise would have been faulty.” A spokesman for the Church stated: “This refers to a decision taken in 2011 by the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland to commission an independent academic analysis of statistics relating to abuse and allegations of abuse over a 60-year period from 1952 to 2012.” “This project, with the cooperation of each of the eight dioceses in Scotland, started and ran until 2012, at which time, the then president of the conference, Cardinal Keith O’Brien, withdrew from the project. Without the participation of all the dioceses a ‘national audit’ was not possible so the analysis was stopped.” Cardinal O’Brien was president of the Bishops’ Conference from 2001 to 2012. A source close to the Church disclosed that Cardinal O’Brien could have feared that his own clandestine behaviour may have been revealed during the inquiry or that he was anxious to cover for individuals that were aware of his secret life. In the letter,to the Tablet Archbishop Conti said Cardinal O’Brien had stated: “I understand that in the light of the criticisms the Church has been facing, these audits will now be published. I think they will go some way towards confirming Bishop Joseph Devine of Motherwell remarks that the percentage of priests involved in abuse is ‘tiny’, and in demonstrating the seriousness and competence with which the Church in Scotland has been dealing with safeguarding in all its implications for many years.” The Catholic Church in Scotland has been scandalised in recent months by Cardinal O’Brien’s resignation and a recent BBC Scotland documentary detailing decades of sexual abuse at Fort Augustus boarding school in the Highlands, and its preparatory school, Carlekemp Priory near Edinburgh, run by Benedictine monks, both of which are now closed. Police Scotland said on Wednesday that more than 20 potential victims had already been identified. Child protection is due to be discussed by the Scottish bishops when they meet in the first week of September, although a national strategy is unlikely to be decided on until Monsignor Leo Cushley, the new Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, takes over on 21 September and other bishops are appointed to existing vacancies. It is understood that the current president of the Bishops’ Conference, the Archbishop of Glasgow Philip Tartaglia, is cautious about backing an independent inquiry until all the vacancies in the conference are filled. However, there are growing demands for an independent inquiry into the Scottish Church’s handling of abuse allegations similar to one in England and Wales conducted by Lord Nolan in 2001. A second inquiry was led by Baroness Cumberlege in 2007. Last week, Danny Sullivan, the chairman of England and Wales’ safeguarding commission, stated there should be an independent inquiry in Scotland. And Alan Draper, a retired deputy director of social work that led the Catholic Church in Scotland’s initial response to child abuse allegations in the 1990s, stated an independent inquiry was the only way for the Church to act as it was now “totally discredited”, and any inquiry should also examine Cardinal O’Brien’s behaviour. Mr Draper concluded that while the allegations against the cardinal do not involve minors, he believes they come under the safeguarding category as those who alleged misconduct could be classed as vulnerable adults.

Elite Paedophilia and Child Abuse

The Telegraph published an article in September 2013, regarding the victims of the paedophile and MP Cyril Smith and are considering a lawsuit against the Liberal Democrats for compensation. Lawyers of the victims state that his position and status as a Liberal MP and “national figure” provided with him “access to vulnerable boys” and put him on the “pedestal of respectability”. They also stated that they are now investigating “who knew what” within the Liberal Party and its successor the Liberal Democrats.
Alan Collins, a solicitor at Panone, explained that “From the victims’ perspective Smith could not have sexually abused were it not for the fact that he was a councillor and MP. “These offices gave him access and opportunities, which would otherwise not have been available. “I am therefore investigating who knew exactly what about Smith at the time the victims were being abused. This entails an examination of his relationship not just with local government in Lancashire but that which he had with the Liberal Party and its successor the Liberal Democrats.”
With any relationship follows responsibilities. Smith misused those relationships to access vulnerable teenage boys and the Liberal Party benefited from the relationship with his larger than life profile, his campaigning, and numerous public appearances. “He took the Liberal whip and was very much a party man.” Lord Steel confirmed, the former leader of the Liberal Party. He had been made aware of allegations of “unusual behaviour with boys” involving Smith at a children’s home in the 1960s, before he became a Liberal MP. He was questioned about the allegations when they emerged in 1979, yet Smith denied any wrongdoing and informed them that matter had been investigated by police, who had closed their file. The police later confirmed that the case had been closed. On Smith’s death in 2010, senior Liberal Democrats including party leader Nick Clegg and former leader Charles Kennedy paid tributes to him as a “larger than life character.” A Liberal Democrat spokesman said: “Cyril Smith’s acts were vile and repugnant and we have nothing but sympathy for those whose lives he ruined. His actions were not known to or condoned by anyone in the Liberal Party or the Liberal Democrats.” It comes amid fresh evidence that MI5 and Special Branch covered up Smith’s abuse of children. A police dossier, which accuses the Liberal Democrat MP of a “sordid series of indecent episodes with young boys”, was handed to prosecutors in the 1970s “but went missing for more than 40 years.” The dossier which has since been obtained by Channel 4’s Dispatches, reveals that Smith was accused of eight counts of sex abuse, including six offences at a care home that he himself set up in Rochdale. Smith’s case has parallels with Jimmy Savile, the former BBC presenter that was one of many who used his celebrity status to gain access to vulnerable hospital patients. The Metropolitan Police confirmed that Smith was a visitor at the Elm Guest House, which was allegedly run as a male brothel in the early 1980s. Police are investigating claims that boys were abused at the premises by a paedophile ring. The existence of the Cyril Smith sex abuse dossier was first revealed by The Telegraph in November last year. Tony Robinson, a special branch officer with Lancashire Police in the 1970s, said he saw a police dossier which was “thick” with allegations from boys, claiming they had been abused by Sir Cyril. He stated that after taking the file out of the safe at special branch headquarters in Hutton, Preston, he was contacted by an officer from MI5 that informed him it required to be sent to London. Mr Robinson also disclosed that the then Director of Public Prosecutions had examined the allegations but decided they were “not in the public interest”. A former Lancashire police officer stated he was told by Special Branch to stop his investigation into Smith and ordered to hand over the police dossier. Jack Tasker stated: “They made it quite clear that anything that was kept by us would bring repercussions if we didn’t hand it over; that as far as we are concerned, the inquiry is finished … you will take no more inquiries into Cyril Smith.” In 1974 the Conservatives invited the Liberals to form a Coalition government in which Smith could have been appointed a minister.
It should be noted that MPs Care Group in Cumbria, Derbyshire, Durham, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Tyrone, Ceredigion and so forth still provide long and short term care for vulnerable children of all kinds. Yet it does not stop there, I’m afraid.
A 2011 investigation reveal the Stoke Mandeville Hospital Trust, one of the most charities. Through their celebrity connections, the trust had raised phenomenal finances to support the treatment children with severe spinal injuries. As a kind of grateful gesture to those celebrities, the most formidable donors were often allowed to visit the wards without supervision, and spent time the children there, such as Jimmy Saville. In the 1970s, British TV presenter Jimmy Saville began volunteering at the trust. Unknown at the time was his inclination towards young children, particularly males. He applied his fame and knowledge to cover up hundreds, if not thousands, of assaults on children and more than likely acts of necrophilia. The hospital provided him with access to their wards. Access, which he allegedly used to conduct a campaign of abuse against children as young as the age of nine. It is presumed that the trust were aware of the circumstances and chose to turn a blind eye, possibly out of fear of losing their biggest donor. In 2013, the trust was shut down.
This merely evidences the power that the people that have upon the corruption within society.
For over a decade, the conflict in Darfur, a region in Sudan, one of the worst humanitarian crises. Thousands were displaced and children were sent to refugee camps, left to perish without parents or future. The French charity Zoe’s Ark travelled to a refugee camp in Chad with the plan of rescuing as many orphans as possible, providing them with loving French parents. “It was an idea with its heart firmly in the right place.” Unfortunately, the charity entirely disregarded Chad’s adoption laws, which considers exporting children from refugee camps without any government oversight illegal. It is questionable whether those 103 children they transported were in actuality orphans. A subsequent Red Cross investigation revealed that 85% of them were neither from Darfur nor refugees, but had been stolen from their parents in Chad. A practice that may be categorised as kidnapping. The charity was also discovered to have given the children “false injuries”. “Presumably on the assumption that refugees cannot be proper refugees without a missing eye.” For all their good intentions, the charity workers were arrested by authorities, and now stand accused of charges ranging from fraud to human trafficking.
Furthermore, Children in Need is one of Britain’s most respected charities, which is run by the BBC. It regularly donates millions of pounds toward aiding disabled children, young people, and psychopathic terrorists. Between 1999 and 2002, the charity regularly passed donations on to Leeds Community School, which in turn used the funding to establish an Islamic bookshop. This bookshop was owned and operated by the 7/7 London suicide bombers. With the donations from Children in Need along with those from other sources, the group funded the printing and distribution of terrorist and anti-Semitic literature, and scheduled local film screenings aimed at recruiting future jihadists. Donations from British citizens literally financed terrorism. In the aftermath of the London bombings, the connection was discovered, and the BBC issued a full apology.Children in Need has become officially associated with vacationing terrorists.
In 2006, after two years of a sustained drought Kenya had reached the brink of disaster. Crops failed, food shortages became fatally acute and over 4 million individuals were suffering from or facing the threat of starvation. In the face an impending humanitarian crisis, New Zealand manufacturer Christine Drummond decided to commit an act of kindness by offering dogfood to the families of Kenya. Expectedly, this is was interpreted as an offensive, if not racist, gesture. Even when starving to death, all of us would like to maintain a modicum of dignity. Feeding your infant dogfood would in most countries be considered a breach of human rights. The Kenyan press tore Drummond to shreds after an official declination. First, due to the nature of her offer. And second, for her determination to deliver to an area that was completely unaffected by drought. “Although Drummond later denied that the paste was actually dog food, claiming it was simply based on a near-identical formula, the damage had been done.”
One of the paradoxes of delivering humanitarian aid is that often one has to work with the very same individuals that are perpetrating the crimes the organisation is attempting to prevent. In Somalia, for example, charities require the support of the malitia to provide supplies for ordinary citizens, resulting in a loss of about 20% of all aid sent to the country in question. For agencies on the ground, it becomes a small price to offer help to those most deserving of it. However, according to respected Dutch journalist Linda Polman, this sort of unintended distribution may prolong wars. For instance, in Darfur, for over a decade a civil war involved a military regime committing brutal massacres against innocent civilians. Aid agencies desperate to enter the country and provide aid are forced to pay “taxes” to the regime, resulting in circumstances, in which the funding also facilitates the slaughter of the same individuals that they are attempting to support. These unintended consequences may be to perpetuate a disaster that would have otherwise burnt itself out in a shorter period of time.In 2010, a devastating earthquake leveled Haiti, taking the lives hundreds of thousands whilst reducing entire towns to rubble. Aid agencies and UN troops descended on the country to help with its reconstruction. The UN redeployed service members from other parts of the world, specifically from Nepal. And these arrived in Haiti with an accidental visitor. Cholera. Prior to the UN’s arrival, cholera had not been observed in Haiti for over a 100 years. Following their arrival, it tore through the country, killing 8,000 individuals, and infecting over 100,000. As a prominent microbial geneticist remarked at the time, introducing the bug to earthquake-affected Haiti was “like throwing a lighted match into a gasoline-filled room.” In a sort of mass panic, treatment centers were swamped with protesters, and lifesaving anti-cholera drugs were prevented from reaching infected areas. The organization denied responsibility, a claim that contrasts all scientific evidence.They also refused to provide financial compensation. The resulted in the Haiti government attempting to sue them in the international court.
Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti charity managed to raise $16 million in donations on the back of the tragic earthquake. Almost all of which went toward funding Wyclef instead of his former countrymen. Aside from supporting Wyclef’s family and non-existent companies, Yele repeatedly failed to deliver on contracted major construction and sanitation projects, including temporary homes and medical centres. The remnants of a cholera ravaged disaster zone remained, which was in desperate requirement of a medical treatment centre. In locations, where construction was initiated, it was often totally pointless. When the Global Orphan Project beat Yele to reconstructing a damaged orphanage, Yele promised to provide food instead. After a few months, it abruptly halted the food supply, and started building a new and totally unnecessary orphanage. The building was never finished, and the children nearly starved to death. In the New York Times, the orphanage director stated “If I had depended on Yele these kids would all be dead by now.”

Loss of a Child – Where do all the Children go?

A child disappears every 3 minutes within the United Kingdom. Yet, it is increasingly complex to gain access to child abduction statistics. Truth be told, every year another paedophile is burnt alive, shot or stabbed due to vigilante justice. How did this happen? Countless priests and offenders formerly convicted of sexual child abuse are merely relocated and continue to fill up their closets with childrens skeletons, while those in charge of them seem to be above the law.  Another major issue that persists within the UK there exists no set definition of child. Unofficially, individuals consider anyone under the age of 18 to be a child. However since there is no set law, children around the age of 16 or 17 often feel independent and consequently act that way legally. Thus, the enquiry “how many missing children are there within the UK?” remains unanswered.
Child Sexual Abuse
Official police statements reveal that every 3 minutes a child is reported missing. This is equivalent to 20 children vanishing every hour, 480 children every day, 3360 children every week, 14’880 children every month…That equals a minimum of 175’200 children per annum.
According to NSPCC statistics, A sum of 18,915 sexual crimes against children under 16 were recorded in England and Wales in 2012/2013. 35% of all sexual crimes (53,540 sexual crimes in total) recorded in England and Wales in 2012/2013 were sexual crimes against children under the age of 16.
In 2012/2013 the police in England and Wales recorded:
5,156 offences of rape of a female child under 16.
1,138 offences of rape of a male child under 16.
4,171 offences of sexual assault on a female child under 13.
1,267 offences of sexual assault on a male child under 13.
6,634 offences of sexual activity involving a child under 16.
176 offences of abuse of children through prostitution and pornography.
373 offences of sexual grooming.

192 offences of abuse of a position of trust involving a child under 18.
More than one third (39%) of all rapes recorded by the authorities in England and Wales in 2012/2013 were committed against children under 16 years of age. In addition, over 23,000 sex offences against children aged under 18 years in England and Wales between April 2012 and March 2013 were recorded. Conversely, 40,345 individuals were registered as sexual offenders in England and Wales on 31 March 2012. 29,837 of these offenders are on the Sex Offender Register for sexual offences against children. In consequence, 941 previous child sex offenders on the Register  have re-offended within that year. According to the NSPCC, 60-70% of child sex offenders target girls only, about 20-33% boys only, and about 10% children of either sex.
“The majority of perpetrators sexually assault children known to them, with about 80% of offences taking place in the home of either the offender or the victim.”
There is no single source of statistics for the number of children who are killed by another person in the UK.
NSPCC statistics state “Killings of children by a natural parent are committed in roughly equal proportions by mothers (47%) and fathers (53%), but where the child is killed by someone other than a [birth] parent, males strongly predominate”. “The proportion of child homicides in which the perpetrator is a parent is exceptionally high among infants”. For example between 1995 and 1999 in England and Wales, 80% of homicide victims under one year old were killed by a parent.
Child Mortality Rate
Five children die unnecessarily every day of conditions such as asthma, meningitis and pneumonia as the NHS care for young people is “badly organised and dangerously inadequate”, the leader of Britain’s 11,000 specialists in children’s health warns. About 2,000 children a year lose their lives due to an array of problems, which results in the UK possessing one of the worst death rates among children up to the age of 14 in Europe, the president of the Royal College of
Paediatrics and Child Health informed the Observer.
The Guardian reports “The WHO’s mortality database for last year shows that the UK had by far the highest number of the 6,198 yearly excess child deaths compared with Sweden across the 14 nations –1,951 in all. That was more than twice the number in France (962) and more than that in other similarly sized countries such as Germany (815), Italy (683) and Spain (545)”.
According to the RCPCH, overall child mortality has declined by over 50% in last 30 years:
• Injuries are the single biggest cause of child deaths
• Young maternal age remains a risk factor throughout childhood Additionally, efforts to prevent deaths in children must focus on improving the quality of care for children with chronic conditions including their families. According to a major, recent study into child mortality launched by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH). The study is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership, as a part of the Clinical Outcome Review Programme: Child Health Reviews -UK (CHR-UK) project. It uses death registration data for UK children between January 1980 and December 2010, examining key areas such as multiple morbidity, child injuries, birth weight and maternal age to assess the risk factors for child deaths. With two thirds of children dying with chronic conditions (approx. 40%  neurological conditions) researchers state further information is required on the proportion of children that suffer from chronic conditions which are terminal in order to improve end of life care for these children and their families. “Today’s report also shows that despite a decline in the overall child mortality rate and a decline in deaths due to accidents, injury remains the most frequent underlying cause of death, accounting for between 31%-48% of deaths in children aged 1-18 years. The number of children dying from intentional injuries, such as self-harm or assault, has not changed in over three decades.”
Child Abduction
According to the Guardian, a 2004 Home Office research study examined 798 police reports of child abduction in England and Wales in an effort to map the situations that lead to children being taken. Just over half of the cases examined were attempted abductions. Of the total, 56% (447) involved a stranger, of which 375 were attempted abductions and 72 were successful. A further 23% (183) of all reported abductions were parental, usually in circumstances a child is entangled in custodial disagreements. In recorded cases of abductions and attempted abductions by strangers, motives for the offence are largely unrecorded, however the Home Office document states, it is “reasonable” to presume numerous to be sexually motivated, as the most common scenario, involving a male offender, attempting to entice a child into a car or physically attempting to drag a victim from a public place. Data collection on missing children is neither co-ordinated nor centralised, which complicates ones capability to understand the scale of the problem. Reports made by law enforcement agencies, child services and other organisations are recorded differently at local, national and international levels. Researchers are forced instead to gather information from missing persons data and related crime reports such as those on trafficking, grooming and abduction. In 2009-2010 there were approximately 230,000 reports of missing children under the age of 18. Research conducted in 2003 suggested that 8% of children and young people reported missing had been forced to leave. This included stranger and parental abduction and being thrown out of home. Abduction by a non-custodial parent is an offence under Section 1 of the Child Abduction Act 1984. The principal source of annual child abduction statistics in England and Wales is taken from crime records published by the Home Office. Figures for Northern Ireland and Scotland are not annually reported in this document.
Privatisation of Childcare
In my professional experience, consisting of years of employment within the social care, I can attest to the varied conditions within the system, yet overall they appear to be lacking and unfavourable in numerous matters.
According to an article published in July 2013, the British government plans to allow outsourcing firms to bid for contracts to manage social services for vulnerable children in England, while dropping laws allowing the removal of companies that fail to do the job properly. A number of firms have expressed an interest in proposals that would permit them to bid for contracts managing foster care and other childcare services. Labour stated the plans would remove legal provisions that allow councils to remove a firm that has failed to meet national minimum standards. They would also relax the rules governing independent inspections of services that place and monitor children that are looked after by the state. Concerns have emerged after the two of the biggest outsourcing companies in Britain, Serco and G4S, were found to have overbilled the taxpayer by charging to tag numerous offenders that were dead or in prison. Lisa Nandy, the children’s minister, stated the latest plans would result in Britain’s most vulnerable children at the mercy of an unregulated private sector. She contacted the regulatory reform committee, which is considering a draft legislative reform order, urging it to reject the government’s plans. “For the government to consider outsourcing a sensitive service such as foster care to the private sector, when we have just seen with G4S and Serco how a profit motive can have disastrous consequences for the public purse, is madness.” she explained “The proposals remove many of the checks and balances required to ensure the safety of children whilst introducing the unchecked unpredictability of the market. They should withdraw their proposals now and think again.”
Nandy’s letter outlined the reform order would remove the requirement for direct registration and inspection by Ofsted for providers of social services by amending the provision which imposes it. “It appears to remove the obligation for a national minimum standard relating to the fitness of providers and any mechanisms for removing providers who fail to meet these standards. The implications are potentially very serious and could have a profound impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in the country.”
A Department for Education spokesperson revealed that even legal requirements would be removed under government planning, inspections and a national minimum standard for providers would be covered by councils’ existing obligations. The DfE thereafter wisely remarked “It was nonsense to suggest that private-sector and voluntary organisations cannot provide good-quality services for children” and that the suggested change in policy was first explored under the last government. Trial runs in six areas in which the private sector was involved, inspected by Ofsted, were set up as a response to concerns that social workers were overburdened and unable to dedicate enough time to supporting children in care. However, the evaluation, published last year, displayed mixed results, yet no better outcomes for children in social care. In addition, the study, published last year in the Children and Youth Services Review, concluded: “While the independent sector is often the setting for innovation, the public sector continues to function as a repository for a wide range of expertise and resources. It is also more likely to offer continuity of knowledge, skills and care and, in this respect, it may be better placed to respond to the uncertainly that characterises the needs of children in out-of-home care.”
Paedophilia and the Removal of Children
The recent accusation of paedophilia, involving a Coronation Street celebrity. As the fourth actor within the series, this accusation was plastered all over the Sun and the Mirror. Ultimately, it was revealed that he was participating in an extramarital affair on the dates he was accused of having molested a young girl between the age of 4 and 8. Consequently, it was published in an article of the mirror that the mother of the child had orchestrated the entire event in association with a paedophile ring. The actor was subsequently cleared of all charges. Coincidence or a single phenomenon? I think not.
According to the Dailymail, one of the country’s leading judges insists the Press must be allowed into family courts to prevent miscarriages of justice. Sir James Munby, head of the family courts, stated that without “the jealous vigilance of an informed media”, families will inevitably suffer irreversible injustices. Yesterday, he cited two cases in which social workers wrongly seized children from their parents as “a dreadful warning” of what can occur when courts operate behind closed doors. Sir James, the president of the Family Division of the High Court, also called for the opening up of the Court of Protection. The secretive court, which settles the affairs of those that have lost the capacity to decide for themselves. He explained, the routine ban on journalists at its hearings must be removed. His is phonecall seven months after the Daily Mail revealed that a judge at the Court of Protection had secretly ordered a woman to be jailed as she defied his ruling by trying to get her father out of a care home, in which she thought his life was in danger. Wanda Maddocks was imprisoned without her name or any details of her contempt of court being made known to the public, and without a lawyer to represent her. Senior judges later proclaimed that no human should be jailed in secret.
A recent article by Dave Bohon in the New American’ displayed that legalizing pedophilia is a continued effort which, thanks to certain conservative groups such as Liberty Counsel and the American Family Association are coming to light. Matt Staver of the pro-family Liberty Counsel has rightly pointed out: “if reclassifying pedophilia was merely an ‘error,’ it would have been caught in the ‘decade’s journey.’ Whether it is classified a ‘sexual orientation’ or a ‘sexual interest,’ any effort to legitimize pedophilia will provide pederasts with all the arguments they need to remove age of consent laws, and children will suffer.”
Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg, a 63 year old, recently explained what he described as a “child-rape assembly line” among sects of fundamentalist Jews. A member of Brooklyn’s Satmar Hasidim fundamentalist branch of Orthodox Judaism, Nuchem designs and repairs mikvahs in compliance with Torah Law. The mikvah is a ritual Jewish bathhouse used for purification. Devout Jews are required to cleanse themselves in the mikvah on a variety of occasions: women must visit following menstruation, and men have to make an appearance before the High Holidays such as Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Many of the devout also purify themselves before and after the act of sex and before the Sabbath. On a visit to Jerusalem in 2005, Rabbi Rosenberg entered into a mikvah in one of the holiest neighborhoods in the city, Mea She’arim. “I opened a door that entered into a schvitz,” he told me. “Vapors everywhere, I can barely see. My eyes adjust, and I see an old man, my age, long white beard, a holy-looking man, sitting in the vapors. On his lap, facing away from him, is a boy, maybe seven years old. And the old man is having anal sex with this boy.” Rosenberg stated “This boy was speared on the man like an animal, like a pig, and the boy was saying nothing. But on his face, there was fear. The old man looked at me without any fear, as if this was common practice. He didn’t stop. I was so angry, I confronted him. He removed the boy from his penis, and I took the boy aside. I told this man, ‘It’s a sin before God, a mishkovzucher. What are you doing to this boy’s soul? You’re destroying this boy!’ He had a sponge on a stick to clean his back, and he hit me across the face with it. ‘How dare you interrupt me!’ he said. I had heard of these things for a long time, but now I had seen.”
The child sex abuse crisis in ultra-Orthodox Judaism, like that in the Catholic Church, has produced its share of shocking headlines in recent years. In New York, and in the prominent Orthodox communities of Israel and London, allegations of child molestation and rape have been rampant. The alleged abusers are schoolteachers, rabbis, fathers, uncles and figures of male authority. The victims, like those of Catholic priests, are mostly boys. Rabbi Rosenberg believes around half of young males in Brooklyn’s Hasidic community, the largest in the United States and one of the largest in the world, have been victims of sexual assault perpetrated by their elders. Ben Hirsch, director of Survivors for Justice, a Brooklyn organization that advocates for Orthodox sex abuse victims, thinks the real number is higher. “From anecdotal evidence, we’re looking at over 50 percent. It has almost become a rite of passage.” Ultra-Orthodox Jews that speak the truth about this continued abuse are ruined and condemned to exile by their own community. Dr. Amy Neustein, a nonfundamentalist Orthodox Jewish sociologist and editor of Tempest in the Temple: Jewish Communities and Child Sex Scandals, revealed the story of a series of Hasidic mothers in Brooklyn that complained that their children were being preyed on by their husbands. In these cases, the accused men “very quickly and effectively engage the rabbis, the Orthodox politicians, and powerful Orthodox rabbis who donate handsomely to political clubs.” The goal, she told me, is “to excise the mother from the child’s life.” Rabbinical courts cast the mothers aside, and the effects are permanent. The mother is “amputated.” One woman befriended by Dr. Neustein, a music student at a college outside New York, lost contact with all six of her children, including an infant she was breastfeeding at the time of their separation.
Seven years ago, Rabbi Rosenberg started blogging about sex abuse in his community and opened a New York City hotline to field sex abuse complaints. He has posted appeals on YouTube, appeared on CNN, and given speeches across the US, Canada, Israel, and Australia. For this he is reviled, slandered, hated, feared. He receives death threats on a regular basis. In Yiddish and Hebrew newspapers, advertisements taken out by the self-described “great rabbis and rabbinical judges of the city of New York” have denounced him as “a stumbling block for the House of Israel,” “a public rebuker and preacher of ethics” who “persists in his rebelliousness” and whose “voice has been heard among many Jewish families, especially young people in their innocence drawn to listen to his poisonous and revolting speeches.” Leaflets distributed in Williamsburg and Borough Park, the centers of ultra-Orthodoxy in Brooklyn, display his bearded face over the body of a writhing snake. “Corrupt Informer,” reads one of the leaflets, followed by the declaration that Rabbi Rosenberg’s “name should rot in hell forever. They should cut him off from all four corners of the earth.”
NBC News reported that nearly 400 children were rescued and 348 adults arrested following an expansive and “extraordinary” international child pornography investigation by the Canadian police. The three-year project, named Project Spade, began when undercover officers with the Toronto Police Service Child Exploitation service made contact with a Toronto man allegedly sharing “very graphic images” of child sexual abuse in Oct. 2010, Toronto Police Service Chief William Blair stated at a press conference. Police stated their investigation revealed an entire child film production and distribution company in Toronto operating via the web site azovfilms.com. The site was run by 42-year old Brian Way, distributing images of child exploitation to individuals across the globe. Inspector Joanna Beaven-Desjardins, head of Toronto’s Sex Crimes Unit, stated that they enlisted the help of the United States Postal Inspection Service since countless of the videos were being exported to the U.S. and began a joint investigation. After a seven-month long investigation, officers executed search warrants across the city of Toronto including at the business, located in the city’s West End. Investigators catalogued hundreds of thousands of images and videos of “horrific sexual acts against very young children, some of the worst they have ever viewed,” Inspector Beaven-Desjardins said at the press conference. Police seized over 45 terabytes of data from the $4-million business that distributed to over 50 counties including Australia, Spain, Mexico, Sweden and Greece.
As a result of the investigation thus far, 50 people were arrested in Ontario, 58 in the rest of Canada, 76 in the United States, and 164 internationally. What was most alarming, Inspector Beaven-Desjardins said, was that many of the arrests were of people who worked with or closely interacted with children. Among those arrested were 40 school teachers, nine doctors and nurses, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors and priests and three foster parents, she said. Citing a particularly egregious example, she explained police found over 350,000 images and over 9,000 videos of child sexual abuse in the home of a retired Canadian school teacher. Certain images were of children known to the man and he was also charged with sexually abusing a child relative. The inspector said an indispensable aspect to the success of the operation and the rescue of 386 children from child exploitation was the expansive cooperation between Toronto police and organizations worldwide. “This confirms that when we work together regardless of the borders that divide us we can successfully take down those who not only prey on our most vulnerable but also profit from it,” she said. Police said the children were “rescued from child exploitation” but did not give more details. Way was charged with 24 counts, including possession of, distribution of, and importing and exporting child pornography. The police, however, concluded that the investigation is ongoing and more arrests could follow.
