Cops in The United Kingdom Seem To Be Fairly Incompetent

Either that or there is so much fear around being labeled xenophobic that they are paralyzed, and left unable to do their jobs. Police and protestors gather outside court where 29 men and one woman face charges of sexually abusing girls as young as 13.

Why do I think they are incompetent?

The offences relate to five young girls and teenagers and were allegedly carried out between 2005 and 2012, when the complainants were 12 to 18 years old.

Someone had to know about this over the course of 7 years.

30 men and 1 woman were arrested over this. They are all named except for one man who could not be name due to “legal reasons” which might mean that he is technically a minor. (It might not.) The BBC has two articles on this case. One from the 6th of September: Huddersfield child sex inquiry: More men appear in court. The other is from the 5th of September: Huddersfield child sex inquiry: Thirty-one in court.
