Pat on the back?

The number of people convicted of sex offences on children aged under 16 in England and Wales has increased by nearly 60% in six years.
A Freedom of Information request to the Ministry of Justice found that in 2005, 1,363 people were convicted while in 2010, it was 2,135.
The rise has been attributed to better detection and raised awareness.
Child protection groups say the number is relatively small and that it remains a grossly under-reported crime.

Better detection?

Better policing… As you know, I worked in this area and the officers that do work very hard and get nothing but stress in return…

I say to the agencies supporting us a big thank you…

  1. Better detection ? Better policing ? Better reporting ? Better awareness ? OR….the subhuman filth actually being prosecuted ?

    There’s plenty more where they came from.

  2. I think it’s due to the fact that everyone is paranoid about paedophiles now. Yes, it is all over the top now but……… more convictions probably mean more investigations due to more reporting of offences etc. I doubt there are more offences committed. There must be a balance somewhere regarding the paranoia – but if more are convicted then that will do for now.
