The Northumbria police are tracking down social media users who made “offensive” and potentially “criminal posts” about the race and religion of grooming gangs following the Operation Shelter scandal, in which young white British girls were groomed, sexually abused, and trafficked by mostly Muslim men of Pakistani or Bangladeshi descent.

Northumbria Police have warned that “offensive” comments on the Internet will not be tolerated, tracking down users who made “potentially criminal” posts on social media about grooming gangs.

The force launched an investigation into comments left on its Facebook page in response to articles about the Operation Shelter scandal, in which young white British girls were groomed, sexually abused and trafficked by mostly Muslim men of South Asian descent in Newcastle.

Officers made a review of every comment on the page after a member of the public complained that a number of posts referred to the race and religion of the 18 people convicted following the operation.

ChronicleLive reports that police recorded two cases of racially aggravated public order offences among responses to the news articles on Facebook, and have now tracked down six people responsible for posts “deemed to be offensive and potentially criminal”.

A spokesman from Northumbria Police said: “As a result of a complaint, we can confirm we looked into a number of comments posted on the force’s Facebook page.

“Following an investigation, which has now concluded, we spoke to two males as voluntary attenders and visited a further four people in their homes, and provided them with words of advice.

“All expressed their remorse and stated that the intention of their comments was not to cause concern or to be offensive and have acknowledged the words of advice provided.”

The spokesman added: “We would also like to take this opportunity to remind people using social media that they should do so responsibly and ensure they do not post anything which could be considered offensive.”

Oh I see, the British police don’t want you to mention the race or the religion of the people involved in sexual grooming even though both are relevant to the profiles of the perpetrators and the culture that produces such crime.

They have no money to investigate sex trafficking crimes against women and children but they have plenty of time to monitor facebook posts. What irony.

The interesting take away for me here is that no action was taken against the individuals concerned who no doubt vented – as anyone would – about the total apathy the police and civic authorities took regarding hundreds of white female children subjected to rape and abuse by adult males from muslim faith communities, in seven towns across England. I think if the police had dared actually set upon any one of them their police stations would have been burnt down by ordinary towns people incandescent with rage at the injustices that have been going on for years, without any… Read more »
