Authorities unable to tackle massive pedophilia problem in UK
A British police chief in charge of the child protection unit warned that there are more than 20,000 pedophiles in the UK, more than the number of terrorist suspects according to official data.
Over 4,000 men from the UK have been identified as ‘active users of a chat room used to monitor pedophiles in 2017 according to Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead on child protection.
Bailey points out that the sheer number of men interested in sexually abusing children in “staggering” with the total over 20,000, a figure that exceeds terrorism suspects in the UK.
RT reports: Some 72,000 referrals of online child sexual abuse imagery were received by the National Crime Agency in the first 11 months of 2017, Bailey revealed.
He suggested that children at schools should be warned of the dangers of sexual abuse in the same manner they are advised on how to react if caught up in a terrorist attack.
“We need the same warnings about sexual abuse in schools, in the same way as we do for terrorism,” Bailey said. He added that a child from any family is a potential victim for pedophiles, saying that the threat “does not recognize social status.”
Even the “very caring” and “educated parents who think they are internet-savvy” may have their children targeted by predators. An accused child rapist has walked free after police were caught withholding crucial evidence from lawyers for the second time in a week.
