New Grooming Scandal Fears as Police Investigate Almost 200 Sex Crimes in One Small Town

Officers have said they are investigating almost 200 cases of child sex abuse in Keighley, prompting fears of a ‘new Rochdale’ grooming gang in the small Yorkshire town.

West Yorkshire Police are reportedly investigating 179 new sex crimes involving 165 suspects in the small mill town, described as the nation’s ‘capital’ of child grooming.

Situated just outside Bradford, Keighley has a population of 56,000, including more than 12,000 Muslims, and the town boasts eight mosques.

Last year 12 men were jailed for more than 140 years between them for the abuse of one 13-year-old girl in Keighley, who the gang repeatedly raped over a period of 13 months — on one occasion five men “lining up” and taking it in turns to abuse her.

A report into the case found the girl was known to police and services but let down, just as in the Rochdale scandal recently dramatised by the BBC.

Local MP, Conservative Kris Hopkins, has warned that the town is “top of the list” for ‘Asian’ grooming gangs targeting white children to be sexually abused.

“I am very well aware that there are numerous white paedophiles out there and they should be dealt with just as harshly,” he told the Telegraph and Argus after the Keighley gang were jailed.

“But the sick model of organised groups of Asian men grooming young white girls to be sexually abused remains a blight at the heart of many communities across this country.

‘There’s going to be a lot of dead gangsters’: Inside King County’s surging gang war

Police attribute a troubling increase in gang-related shootings from Seattle to South King County to warring Hispanic gangs, including some that previously got along. “I’m very concerned about this heating up in the summer months,” says Federal Way’s mayor.

Arturo Marcial-Alvarez’s face was covered with a blue bandanna and he had a stolen revolver in his waistband when he was intercepted by two King County sheriff’s detectives in February as he got off a Metro bus.

The detectives, who were also on the bus, noticed him reaching for his waist while glaring at another man who was stepping off the coach, court records say.

“Looks like we just missed some gang stuff,” one detective texted the other before they arrested the 19-year-old for carrying a concealed pistol, according to court records.

Whether the detectives thwarted a shooting by arresting Marcial-Alvarez will likely never be known. Two months after his release from jail, Marcial-Alvarez, who police called an “avowed” gang member, was fatally shot at a bus stop in Federal Way on April 11.

Police say he was a targeted victim of a war between rival Hispanic gangs that detectives trace to the January shooting death of Manuel Ortiz, 18, over the defacing of gang graffiti near his Burien apartment.

FBI nabs 19 mobsters linked to crime family portrayed in ‘Goodfellas’

The arrests come amid a nationwide crackdown on gang activity and violence, emphasized by President Donald Trump and his administration. Earlier this month ICE arrested more than 1,000 gang members in a nationwide, six-week surge Opens a New Window. , the agency said.

FBI agents in New York arrested 19 suspected members of the Lucchese crime family, famously portrayed in the popular movie “Goodfellas.”

The suspects arrested Wednesday are accused of crimes ranging from murder to drug-dealing and extortion. The indictments span the years 2000-2017, according to Reuters. The Lucchese family is one of the most notorious and longest-running organized crime gangs in the tristate area.

The Lucchese crime family inspired Martin Scorsese’s 1990 film “Goodfellas” and is believed to be connected to the infamous Kennedy Airport heist that took place in 1978, which resulted in the theft of $5 million and hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewelry.

Manchester Bomber ‘Part of Mob Who Waged Intimidation Campaign Against Gang Rape Victim’

The mother of a schoolgirl rape victim has said Manchester bomber Salman Abedi was part of a group who waged a two-month campaign of intimidation against her daughter and family.

Salman Abedi was an associate and childhood friend of Bilal Ahmed, who was jailed with two others for a total of 29 years in 2016 for taking part in the brutal gang rape of the 16-year-old.

Members of the rapists’ South Manchester community “intimidated and goaded” the victim and her family members throughout the trial, and hurled abuse and blew kisses in court on the day the trio were jailed.

The victim’s mother told the Mail on Sunday she is convinced Abedi was part of the mob who intimidated her and her husband outside court, asserting that she recognised Abedi’s name as soon as it became public following the Manchester attack.

Concerned about violent imagery on the social media pages of Ahmed and his associates, the 50-year-old from Cheshire said she reported them to the anti-terrorism hotline in February last year but believes no action was taken.

“Now I see Salman, who clearly hung around with them, has become a suicide bomber. So clearly they didn’t look into what I told them properly,” she said, adding: “They are all friends and are ending up terrorists and rapists.

“At the time it made me think another one could go on to commit a terrorist act and Salman clearly has.”

Obama admin knew gang members were part of illegal immigrant surge: Whistleblower

The gang members were part of the surge of UAC, or “unaccompanied alien children,” as the government labels them, who overwhelmed the Obama administration in 2014, leaving Homeland Security struggling to staunch the flow from Central America.

The Obama administration knowingly let in at least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, a top senator said Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country.

Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 persons who were caught crossing the border.

“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said.

Shabir Ahmed: the Rochdale sex gang ringleader who blamed white community for not looking after girls

Ahmed blamed the white community for allowing teenage girls to go around unsupervised, so that at a young age they were “trained” in both sex and drinking. “When they come to us they are fully trained and they start their own business,” he said.

Shabir Ahmed, the man at the heart of the conspiracy carried on a secret affair with the white teenager who acted as his recruiter.

For a year he lived in fear that people in his own community might find out about the relationship and ostracise him.

On every occasion the couple had sex he would “go home, say two units of prayer and ask Allah forgiveness for doing wrong”.

He told the jury that fellow Pakistanis would regard him as having “infested” their community by sleeping with a white girl. “It’s not just them who are racist. We are racist too”.

Ahmed, who could not be named during the original trial, cut a belligerent figure in the courtroom, hurling insults at the judge and prosecution barristers and claiming he was the victim of a police-led conspiracy.

He dismissed the allegations against him as “white lies” made up by girls who had built up a profitable business empire by working as prostitutes.

Three Girls: how poor white girls were sacrificed on the altar of multiculturalism

New BBC drama about the Rochdale child-grooming scandal.

What is the worst moment in Three Girls, the new BBC One three-part drama based on the Rochdale child-grooming scandal?

Is it when Holly realises that “Daddy”, a gross, 59-year-old Pakistani brute she met in a kebab shop, is expecting sex in return for all the chips and vodka he’s given her? “It’s part of the deal,” he explains, as he hauls himself onto the child’s cringing body. By the time he’s finished, Holly’s face has aged a thousand years.

Is it when Holly (played by the wonderful Molly Windsor) goes to the police seeking protection from Daddy (“Look, you’re my bitch now – if you cross me, I’ll kill you”) and the detective yawns extravagantly before pointing out that, if Holly had been raped, as she claims: “You don’t go back for more, do you?”

‘See You in Hell,’ Female MS-13 Member Allegedly Says to Murder Victim

A female MS-13 member accused of murder in Maryland allegedly told the victim that she “would see her in hell” before she stabbed her to death.

Venus Romero Iraheta, 17, is one of 10 individuals – several of whom are MS-13 members – arrested in connection with the vicious murder of Damaris A. Reyes Rivas who died on or close to January 8, 2017, Breitbart News previously reported.

Iraheta purportedly blamed Rivas for the death of her boyfriend, 21-year-old Christian Sosa Rivas, who died around New Year’s Eve along the Potomac River after a confrontation with MS-13.

As Breitbart previously reported, Iraheta had lived in the U.S. for the past 10 years which made her “DREAMer” eligible for amnesty under an Obama executive order.

In court on Thursday, FBI Special Agent Fernando Uribe testified about Rivas’ gruesome murder and its connection to the notoriously violent MS-13 street gang, The Washington Post reported.

Uribe said that both Iraheta and Rivas had relationships with Christian and that he was targeted by MS-13 because he claimed to be a leader in the gang. Iraheta believed that Rivas led Christian to the spot where MS-13 were waiting to kill him.

Rotherham Sex Survivor: I Told Authorities And They Did Nothing (Video)

A survivor of the child exploitation ring in Rotherham called Katie Hopkins to tell her horrifying story.

Emma told Katie that she reported at the age of 13 that she had been raped, but authorities chose to do nothing – and told her not to mention the ethnicity of the assailants.

Now a mother, Emma revealed that she was delighted to have a boy, because she would have been terrified of the same thing happening to her daughter.

She told Katie: “I actually reported my abuse 14 years ago. I went to the authorities, my parents did. I sat and gave video interviews with the police, I was willing to work with them.

“I never once looked at my perpetrators for what race or religion they were. I simply looked at who they were and what they’d done.

“But as soon as I said the names, I was made to feel as though I was racist and I was the one who had the problem.

“That continued all the way through to the Jay Report coming out in Rotherham.

“I knew I wasn’t racist, but that was used as a way to silence me.”

Mexico Is World’s Second Most Violent Country, Report Says

In the 2016 National Drug Threat Assessment, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) reported, “Mexican TCOs [Drug Cartels] remain the greatest criminal drug threat to the United States; no other group is now positioned to challenge them”. “There are no air strikes”, Parakilas said.

The increasing war among drug cartels in Mexico and against the armed and police forces caused 23,000 fatal victims in 2016, compared to the 17,000 dead people in Iraq and 16,000 in Afghanistan. It also disagreed with the report’s methodology. Now, only Syria, embroiled in a baffling six-year-long civil war, surpasses Mexico in conflict-related deaths.

The largest number of fatalities occurred in Mexican states that have become “key battlegrounds for control between competing, increasingly fragmented cartels”, he said, with violence flaring as gangs try to clear areas of rivals so they can monopolize drug trafficking routes.

And that’s not just because of heroin, which killed more Americans than guns in 2015: According to the Drug Enforcement Agency’s 2016 National Drug Threat Assessment, Mexican cartels “work with smaller local criminal groups and gangs across the United States for retail drug distribution and transportation” in major cities like Chicago, Boston, and Washington. “Their conclusions have no basis in the case of Mexico”.

Mexican drug cartels take in between $19 billion and $29 billion annually from USA drug sales, according to the Department of Homeland Security. “We think absolute numbers are a good way of measuring intensity”, he said.
