“I certainly don’t think this is a Pakistani thing. My staff would say that there is an over-representation of people from minority ethnic groups â?? Afghans, people from Arabic nations â?? but it’s not just one nation,” said Narey.
Retired detective chief superintendent Max McLean, who led a previous police investigation into sexual exploitation involving the grooming and trafficking of young girls in Leeds, questioned whether it was a cultural problem.
“I’m not suggesting, and I do not think anybody is, that it is a problem within a community,” he told the Today programme. What I am saying is that, when you take a crime type â?? street grooming â?? and see that the vast majority of people convicted are from a particular community, then there appears something we should do about those offenders.
“But that is the very danger, that we say that all street groomers are Asian men. What we have found is that our investigations have led to convictions, generally speaking, for this type of crime.”
It is very common in many cultures, especially 3rd world, to regard outsiders with contempt. Turning people not of one’s culture into druggies or prostitutes is not considered wrong at all. Britain is being ruined by such barbarians.
How prevalent is that here?
