Revealed: NO police officers will be disciplined after FOUR year probe into how GMP failed Rochdale grooming victims


No officers will be disciplined after a probe into how GMP failed victims of child sexual exploitation in Rochdale.
The force probe into the affair has taken FOUR years to publish. It covered botched criminal investigations in 2008 and 2010.
Seven officers were served with misconduct notices after GMP was ordered by the Independent Police Complaints Commission to carry out an inquiry into the force’s inability to protect under-age girls from predominantly Asian gangs who used them for sex.
The seven were interviewed about their decision-making, handling of investigations, and victim care.
They were the former divisional Chief Supt, John O’Hare, a Superintendent, plus two Det Chief Inspectors, two Detective Inspectors, and one Sergeant.
All received management advice regarding their performance.
One Detective Inspector was found to have a case to answer for misconduct but retired before the inquiry could be completed.
By the summer of 2013 force investigators had identified the Det Insp should attend a formal misconduct hearing but they left the force in January 2014.
The report says he failed to produce any meaningful strategy to support a colleague, called ‘Officer 9’
He chose not to properly update or alert his supervision or any member of the Rochdale Division leadership team about the scale of the abuse.
The reason he gave for this - that they had a large workload - was deemed unacceptable.
‘Officer 9’, a detective, was deemed to have warranted misconduct proceedings but the report says he was ‘overwhelmed’ by the task before him.
It says he ‘worked extremely hard to secure evidence, make arrests, and place compelling evidence before specially trained CPS lawyers’.
But he was not sufficiently supported by his line management who he approached for help.
The report adds that when help was not forthcoming he ‘persevered in an attempt to prosecute known offenders and disrupt others.’
It was therefore decided it was ‘inappropriate to punish someone who acted in good faith’.
Eventually evidence he had gathered in 2008 and 2009 was used in a proper well resourced investigation two years later which ended with a trial in May 2012 and the convictions of ten men.
The report says the force failed the victims as the force was focusing on a government driven policy to tackle burglary, robbery, and car crime.
The ‘churn’ of staff at Rochdale police particularly in the inspecting ranks meant leadership of the issue was not maintained.
There was also a lack of understanding of the complexity surrounding child sexual exploitation by all agencies.
The report was delayed after twice being sent back to the force by the IPCC. The first time the IPCC said the contents were not adequate, and in 2012 they had an issue with the ‘style and tone’ of it.
It was finally ready to publish the summer of 2014 but Rochdale council raised concerns about the possibility that some of he victims could be identified from the report.
Finally, a heavily redacted version has been published today.
The report reveals that into total 13 officers were interviewed but only seven served with misconduct notices.
One officer was advised about his behaviour after being caught on film yawning while interviewing a victim at Middleton Police Station.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.



In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
