West Midlands Police knew five years ago that Asian grooming gangs were targeting children outside schools across the city – but failed to make the threat public.

Police refused to warn public about child grooming gangs

Yet more evidence that British police don't, or never have, cared about the welfare of our children.

Hmmm. I learn something new every day.

As an American, I never knew that the word "grooming" carried that definition in British English (until I just looked it up).



For my fellow American ATS members who, like myself, were ignorant to this definition, here is a British definition for "grooming", which may help you understand the article in the OP:

grooming noun (SEX)
The criminal activity of becoming friends with a child, especially over the internet, in order to try to persuade the child to have a sexual relationship with you.

No, a thread about grooming children isn't a good place for a joke, if you were wondering

As member Box of Rain has already stated, in the second post of this thread:


grooming noun (SEX)
The criminal activity of becoming friends with a child, especially over the internet, in order to try to persuade the child to have a sexual relationship with you.

In this *politically correct* age, they were more concerned about

being considered *racist* than protecting children.

*Political correctness* is the problem of today

Hahaha! That was literally the first image that popped into my confused American mind!
Luckily a quick Google search fixed my mental imagery. (Though to be honest...I'd rather be imagining groups of gangs making kids look fabulous, than I would the true meaning of the phrase)
