“ We don’t have a strategy yet …”

488. Ghostbusters (1984)
Three unemployed parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.
The report details no less than three occasions on which internal reports “which could not have been clearer” were ignored or covered up at every level. Police arrested two fathers who managed to track down their daughters and tried to rescue them from their abusers. Another girl was herself arrested for being drunk when she was found in a house with a gang of adult men – the men were allowed to go.
As well as a general failure to take such appalling crimes seriously, there is evidence that both the council and the police avoided the subject in order to avoid being branded as racist – given the overwhelming evidence that the abusers were Pakistani Muslim men and their chosen victims were white girls.
