The Paedophilia Problem In British Police.

Michael Vause

Michael Vause

Is there an institutional problem of paedophilia in the British Police Force and is that why many escape serious prosecution?

The problem in the British Police with paedophilia in their ranks has been a story that has been bubbling around for quite some time, but the mainstream media and judiciary has buried each and every case that has come to light. The first thing to note is the very careful use of words here, the British mainstream media avoid ever linking Police, Celebrities or the powerful with the word “paedophilia”, it is instead called… “Kiddie Porn” or “Child Porn” or various other euphemisms. On the other hand, if an average person is caught with images of child sex abuse they are almost always labelled as a “paedophile”.

The most recent case that has surfaced is most interesting for many reasons. Michael Vause (ex Police Officer) admitted ten counts of making indecent images & made 563 indecent images.

 Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard how Vause was so ashamed of what he’d done that he couldn’t bring himself to speak about it, so he wrote it down to show to police.

So, let’s be clear here ~ upon being found out, he refused to speak to police at all other than in writing, hiding behind the “right of silence” to hide the full gravity of his paedophiliac crimes… What a charming man, who was working for West Yorkshire Police Force in their Professional Standards Department!

 Vause admitted ten counts of making indecent images and was yesterday sentenced to a three-year community order with sex offender programme and supervision requirements.

He was also put on the sex offenders’ register for five years and must pay £85 costs.

Staggering! If this was an isolated case, then one could rule it out easily enough as a case of one lone nut-job…It is made worse when you consider that a rioter in London was recently jailed for 6 months for stealing some bottled water worth £3.50.

However, as the Daily Mail also reported today,  50 police officers  have been arrested in child porn raids across the country. With Police officers being tasked with investigating child porn they inevitably come into contact with it. One can only imagine what is must be like to see all those images which are taboo and kept from the rest of society. Some Police in the course of their job must have to examine and classify pornographic images. That must have a seriously desensitising effect on some Police who are exposed to paedophiliac images. After a while it could even start to become normal to them.  But being a police officer they will also know how to avoid detection. So who watches the watchers ~ who watches the police? Isn’t what we are seeing here just the tip of a much bigger Paedophilia problem within the British Police force?

  1. Adviser to Britain’s police chiefs jailed after downloading child porn
  2. Policeman killed himself after child abuse material found, inquest told
  3. An ex police officer who was a director of the body that runs the Great Yorkshire Show has been jailed for possessing 4,000 images of child abuse.
  4. Police officer accused of child porn offences found stabbed to death in ‘vigilante attack’
  5. A police sergeant who admitted using vile child porn websites after his  fiancee reported him to colleagues was today spared jail.
  6. Police officer on indecent images of children charge
  7. An award-winning police inspector who protected Margaret Thatcher when she was Prime Minister in the 1980s has been jailed for sending child porn to other paedophiles.
  8. Police officer jailed over indecent images of children
  9. Police officer charged with possessing indecent images
  10. Roads Policing officer PC Philip Strolin was charged last night and remanded in custody to appear before Swindon Magistrates’ Court today. The 50-year-old based in Buckinghamshire was arrested on Friday, November 19, and has resigned from the force.
  11. Philip Savidge, 26, of Alexandra Road, Burgess Hill, pleaded guilty at Lewes Crown Court today, Friday 2 September, to 42 offences of making and distribution of 54,323 indecent images of children, including the possession of 1,681 prohibited and extreme images.

Going back to the original story about Michael Vause, what is incredible and truly staggering beyond belief, is that the Wakefield Express article leaves you in the position of feeling sympathy for the abuser. It makes much of the suffering undergone by the Michael Vause as a result of having to resign from his job and seeking out mental health support, given his position in the community.

I rest my case…

    cops are generally control freaks. children are less likely to challenge “their authority”. i’m not surprised so many cops are paedophiles.

    Interesting point. Police, Priests and Teachers then. Its shocking how Police rarely get much punnishment compared to Joe public.

    • who_me July 7, 2012 at 12:09 am #

      interesting about teachers. i’d forgotten how much many of the ones i had in school were control freaks (and that the ones who really effected my education in a positive way were not control freaks, but more the opposite).

    *sighs* yes

    JB wrote: “Choice of words important here…. He made them.!”

    In this context the term does not necessarily mean that he took the photos, as the CPS guidance notes:

    “The downloading and/or printing of indecent images of children from the internet, is capable of amounting to an offence of ‘making’ the image contrary to section 1 (1) (a) of the PCA 1978. See R v Bowden [2000] 1 Cr App R 438, Archbold 31 – 108a.”

    Michael Vause was more fortunate than Nicholas White a press officer for the National Extremism Tactical Coordination Unit a.k.a NETCU who was sentenced to 6 months imprisonment for “20 counts of possessing indecent images and two of possessing extreme images”

      Oh thanks for that Roy I stand corrected, It still seems a light sentence.

  5. Jonathon Blakeley July 7, 2012 at 10:49 am #

    Roy I am stil not clear as the article says he made 563 images (printed?) and 10 counts of making indecent images is that different? The 10 counts?

    • Roy Bard July 7, 2012 at 11:04 am #

      I think it means that he had 563 images gathered from 10 different sources or in ten seperate sessions. (another report says 11 counts)

      The magistrate is reported to have said:

      I do not accept there is such a thing as ‘kiddie porn’. These are images of children being sexually abused, because somewhere along the line a child has been abused.”

      which wouldn’t have been appropriate if he was accused of abusing the children himself.

      Reports also indicate that 1 one of the images was level 3 (depicting abuse) whilst the others were level 1

      Level one typically involves images of children without sexual activity. The other count was at the more serious level three, which involves images depicting sexual activity between adults and children.

    Nothing sickens me more than paedophiles. Have no time at all for them preying on children. Just vile.

  7. etominusipi July 8, 2012 at 6:56 am #

    sexual deviance is a common occurrence amongst the powerful. the systematic abuse of children is its nastiest side. those who have taken part in it are, obviously, easy to control – so it is condoned.

    many journalists know facts related to this that cannot be printed in the mainstream press. one journalist i worked with for a time in London in the 1980’s told me that one of Thatcher’s cabinet ministers was well-known to be an active paedophile, but that this information could not be made public. as he is back in government i will not name him, but his Wikipaedia entry includes the following:


    the situation in the USA can be assessed from this (now 8-year old) transcript of an interview of Senator John DeCamp on Alex Jones Prison Planet show:

    the revelations coming out of the ‘scandal’ in Belgium centred on Marc Dutroux are even more shocking – just google that name, and take your pick of the many treatments of the story.

    it would be naive not to realise that the same things are going on in every country in the world.

    again, given the way these crimes are ‘protected’, it should hardly surprise us that Inspector Knacker is also involved in committing them.

    decent people are horrified when they learn of such things. but, since little can be done, they tend to push the knowledge to the back of their minds, with, perhaps, a sad shake of the head at the propensity to evil which lurks in human nature.

    Jesus singled out the corruption of children as a particularly heinous offence:

    if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. [Matthew 18:6]

    he also reminded us that ‘my kingdom is not of this world’. those who prosper in this world are generally not very nice people. considerable media effort is devoted to the attempt to create the opposite impression.

    • Jonathon Blakeley July 8, 2012 at 9:51 am #

      Good point that it is used to control people via blackmail. This is crucial. Oh I found that wiki entry.. Jewish as well. The Moral decline of our society is sickening, particularly the way the powerful seem largely immune from prosecution. Jim Savile for example, it was almost common knowledge that He was a Paedo but had so many powerful connections he could do as he wished.

      The top layers of our society should offer some kind of inspiration to the rest when in fact the most Powerful are the most corrupt and the most lacking in any moral fibre.

      • etominusipi July 12, 2012 at 3:56 pm #

        he was also a paedo pimp, boys and girls.

  8. etominusipi July 8, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    wikipaedia entry was missed because i included it between the bra and ket which do appear. it runs as follows:

    X was born to parents of Lithuanian Jewish descent, and was educated at the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School and then Trinity College, Cambridge where he was President of the Cambridge Union Society and Chairman of Cambridge University Conservative Association. He started his career as a lawyer. He is a cousin of both Malcolm Rifkind and Mark Ronson.

    Also, concerning Jersey. There’s a link below with regards to the three policemen who supposedly killed themselves within 4 days of each other. It’s not mentioned in the article but Neil Munro was alleged to have been investigating the yachting community, following claims that children from the Jersey homes were being loaned out to wealthy yachtsmen. Richard Fuller was a member of the security team looking after Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Michael Todd’s being linked to the North Wales care home abuse investigation. I wouldn’t be surprised if these care home allegations are all linked. Kincora, Islington, North Wales, Jersey, Leicester etc.

    I’ve also heard that Leon Brittan’s name kept being brought up during the Jason Swift murder investigation. Jason Swift was once in a care home in Islington.

    A lot of people know about what’s been going on in the care homes but they just can’t get to the people involved. How many children have been harmed and how many people have died trying to expose them?

      One word – Freemasons. The sad thing is our intelligence services must spend considerable time and public money keeping all these crimes from the public attention.

    I have just discovered this site. I was in court when Vause walked free. Shall I tell you exactly what the prosecution said when the defence came out with Vauses excuses ………absolutley nothing.I passed information to the prosecution about 3 previous cases he was involved with while he was a detective. The police had said he had not been involved in these cases while he was police officer. We knew about 3 cases and the prosecution would look at what we had taken to court.I have contacted the police I want to know are these cases going to be revisited, but the police will not talk to me.This was a done deal as Vause has done a lot of dirty deals for W.Y.P P.S.D It has cost him nothing and the police are not making any effort to find where and who Vause got the computer off.Well done
    Vause you got away with your crime.

    • Jonathon Blakeley July 12, 2012 at 2:36 pm #

      Thanks for your feedback on this interesting & shocking case. I wondered whether there was more than we were being told. 3 Previous cases you say… I used to live in Wakefield myself.

  11. Wakefield July 13, 2012 at 12:18 am #

    1 of the cases was a police officer D.O. he had been acused by his wife A.N. a detention officer for abusing their child. Vause told me and my husband that he interviewed A.N in early 2007 and he was 1 of the officers that said no further action.We asked why this happened and Vause said “it depends on what you view as child abuse”.My husband was a police officer and he has just retired after 31 honest years. We have contacted the police and police authority Edd Ball he is my MP and several others about Vause. We have got proof he lied about another case involving forensic evidence.There was a level 4 that the cps dropped as they are not sure he owned the computer.The police dont seem to have investigated who did own it.Do they think we are all too stupid to beleive he just happened to buy a computer off a peodophile and he just happened to be a peodophile.(thats a can of worms they dont want to open)Also the police tried to keep it out of the media, but we have made sure that didnt happen.Vause lives in a very very posh village he is very well off, his wife died and he re married but he was always a cheat and womaniser.I have to say I was sick when we heard about this as its not something I ever thought about. I have spent many hours on my own with him and if you knew me you would soon know I adore children and this whole thing has upset my family

  12. fool me once... July 18, 2012 at 12:43 pm #

    Here’s a character worth checking out. I’ve done some other info on JB’s 911 thread.
    British press reported in 1993:
    “The Crown Prosecution Service has been sent details of an investigation into a senior police officer with the Dorset force. Dorset police confirmed yesterday that Superintendent Peter Power, the officer in charge of the west of the county, has been suspended on full pay since April but refused to outline the allegations against him. Power, who was involved in the Iranian embassy siege and King’s Cross fire, transferred to Dorset in 1990 after serving 19 years in the Metropolitan police.”

    I have just found this site.

    The truth about the UK Paedophile Police are known to a number of people who have stumbled upon the sordid details one way, or another.

    In my case, I was told by an MP that the Freemasons were invloved in the North Wales child abuse cases. Then someone who had worked for social services in a North Wales town said that the perpetrators were the Police.

    After being told of links between Freemasons, Police and paedophilia, I have been researching this for myself, along with some others.

    It appears that the paedophile acts are being conducted with the knowledge and tacit agreement, of the UK security services. It suits their purpose to have material which they can use for blackmail and so control people of use to them.

    The cases of child abuse in care homes has gone on for decades and all over the UK, including Jersey. There are links to Kincora, North Wales, Hampshire, Jersey, Staffordshire and may more places where children were abused whilst in the care of the state.

    For a full expose of the North Wales cases, plus involvement of Police and Freemasons, see Rebecca Television online.

    This is all condoned at the highest levels and those in power for many years have knwon about it yet done nothing.

    Peter Power was heavily involved in the 7/7 London false flag

    e.g. on radio5live:

    POWER: …at half-past nine this morning we were actually running an exercise for, er, over, a company of over a thousand people in London based on simultaneous bombs going off precisely at the railway stations where it happened this morning, so I still have the hairs on the back of my neck standing upright!

    hairs standing upright! you betcha!


    Despite running a terror rehearsal on 7th July 2005, Peter Power has repeatedly been used as an independent expert on terrorism, sitting in judgement on such things as the execution of Jean Charles de Menezes at Stockwell tube station as well the official reports which have been released about the events of 7th July 2005. In each instance, Power is presented as a someone who has no special connection with the events of 7/7, nor has he been questioned further about the exact nature and scope of the rehearsal operation he was running, not even about the “One scenario in particular” which “was very similar to real time events.”


    on 17 Sep 2006, Peter Power wrote:
    My name repeatedly comes up whenever armchair / conspiratorial thinkers consider the terrorist exercise my company ran in London at exactly the same time as 7/7. This is only the second time I have formally reacted to these numerous statements. I’ve also appeared many times on BBC News / Newsnight to explain post 9/11 & 7/7 concepts such as ‘new normal’ etc. I think anyone familiar with likely terrorist targets will release [sic] our exercise scenario was coincidence rather than conspiracy…

    indeed Mr. Power, pure coincidence.

    it is, after all, always mere coincidence.

    • David Holden September 17, 2012 at 3:07 pm #

      or perhaps it is a different Peter Power. the arm of coincidence is, after all, as long as the arm of the law.

    “According to a study commissioned by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which investigates complaints against the police in England and Wales, 54 police officers sexually exploited or assaulted members of the public they were supposed to be helping between April 2009 and March 2011.”

  16. Jo September 21, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    The information available indicates that many members of the Thatcher government were involved in child abuse.

    Many of the victims of the abuse in the care homes in North Wales met with untimely and suspicious deaths. A number were killed in a fire at a flat in Palmeira Ave, Hove. There were some features which suggested the fire was deliberate and designed to kill those inside. Fire exits had been blocked, amongst other things.

    The late Paul Foot was investigating these deaths and those of other child abuse victims. He became unwell and unable to pursue his investigations.

    Were victims killed to prevent them naming their abusers?

    There are parallels with the Haut de la Garenne children’s home on Jersey as many of the children there were killed after suffering horredous abuse. Again, it is alleged that some of the perpetrators were prominent people.

  17. David Holden November 20, 2012 at 6:52 am #

    just checking this post + comments again in the light of recent developments. it was a deLiberation “mini-scoop” perhaps? at any rate it is worth bringing your post back to readers’ attention, despite the ‘news focus’ having shifted from paedophilia to mass murder in Gaza. the perpetrators of both types of crime are not unrelated.

    the Daily Mail article relating to operation Ore is not contemporaneous with the Vause trial, but dates from 17th December 2002 – it’s an annoying lapse that the Mail doesn’t put the original date on archived material, but you can check it from “View Page Info”.

    it is curious that the 50 arrested police were classified as belonging to a group of 1200 Britons who had been identified as “category one or two” suspects – those who posed the greatest potential risk to children.

    that is 1 in 24!

    obviously the data is very unevenly sampled, with biasses etc. but that seems quite a high proportion, probably about eight times what you would expect if the identified category 1 or 2 suspects were random adult males*, somewhat less if you take into account only “adult males with computer skills” (since Ore methodology was via checking computer use). still, as a statistician i find the anomaly deserving of further investigation. perhaps it is just that the police judged (correctly) that a bent copper has more opportunity both to perpetrate and to conceal his crimes, and is thus more of a menace because of the authority vested in the police role.

    also surely of interest – what were the socio-economic group characteristics of the remaining 1150 suspects? such data could be analysed and released without compromising the identity of any individual suspect.

    could we pursue this matter via the freedom of information act? or was it covered in Blair’s Iraq D-notices. can D-notices be challenged?

    i feel more clarity is needed on this and many related matters.

    * i am assuming that viewing child porn as well as paedophile acts are much more a male preserve

      This is the most popular article of the mmoment, by a long shot.
      Maybe I missed something of importance in it.
