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?

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…
