U.K. Gang Found Guilty of Raping Babies*

By Nadine Osman

A gang of white paedophiles who raped and abused babies and children under the age of five in attacks that were streamed over the internet are facing lengthy prison sentences after being found guilty.

The gang of seven white men aged between 30 and 51 habitually targeted children in Yorkshire, the South East, and the South West. They faced more than 30 charges, including the rape of a child, conspiracy to rape a child, sexual activity with a child and administering a substance with intent against three victims – a baby, a toddler and a pre-school age child.

The shocking details were reported in full for the first time after the last of the trials ended on April 22 at Bristol Crown Court. They preyed on the families of the children…

Most people like to think that American K-12 schools, workplaces and courthouses are pillars of fairness, but statistic after statistic all point to a crisis among the young, Black men of the nation. This crisis begins in homes, stretches to K-12 educational experiences, and leads straight to the cycle of incarceration in increasingly high numbers. In America’s prison systems, black citizens are incarcerated at six times the rates of white ones – and the NAACP predicts that one in three of this generation of Black men will spend some time locked up.
