British authorities knew of a massive child sex trafficking ring for decades but did nothing about it… because police feared if they arrested the Muslim perpetrators, the media would call them "racist."
So, officials sat back as these gangs drugged, assaulted, and gang-raped over a thousand vulnerable little girls – some as young as 11, a new investigation has found.
Five people were killed and, despite some overdue arrests, girls say the gang is still prowling the area today. Now, the BBC reports that citizens are demanding answers.
Experts believe the underage prostitution ring in Telford is the worst in British history.
More than 1,000 vulnerable girls were brutalized over 40 years, investigators say.
The gang targeted vulnerable girls from broken homes, or with absentee parents, living in poor neighborhoods.
A friendly man would pose as the girl's boyfriend, then ply her with alcohol and drugs, before raping the child and forcing her into a life of prostitution.
