Protection racket

Platell's People

Daily Mail;5/18/2013, p19
ONLY one low-ranking social worker has been sacked after six men were imprisoned for grooming, trafficking, drugging and repeatedly raping girls as young as 11. One mother cried: 'Someone needs to take the blame.' And she's right. The villains of this piece are not just the men who abused her daughter, but the social workers who turned a blind eye despite the wealth of evidence and the police who failed to protect the young victims even when they found the courage to report their abuse.
