    Incredible, but sadly true, mass child abuse and police failure in Lügde, Germany

    More than 40 children between the ages of 3 and 14 are said to have been sexually abused on a campsite in Lügde. The charge against Andreas V, who lived there permanently, includes 298 criminal offences. His neighbor Mario S. is also said to have sexually abused children, and watched and gave tips via online chat to Heiko V. who did the same. Authorities are still evaluating an incredible 14 terabytes of material including more than 3 million photos and 86,000 videos.
    The employees of the youth welfare office and local police are currently under investigation for violation of duties of care and education. Despite clear indications of sexual abuse, the police did not take action. A suitcase packed with 155 CDs and DVDs full of evidence disappeared without a trace at the police station, a fact that was only noticed weeks later.
    Perhaps even more appalling than the failure of the police is how the authorities (youth welfare) gave someone already suspected of pedophilia a child to foster.

    Not just mass incompetence but subsequent cover-ups of own failures by manipulating files after the scandal broke.

    It is all coming to conclusion now (hopefully) because the trial commenced today.

    Only ray of light being that all accused have confessed, thus sparing lengthy interviews for the kids.

    Truly horrible story. Some of the cover-up attempts or sheer avoidance of evidence is shocking to read.

    Child services looked the other way and the police let evidence disappear
    Pedophiles are different to other criminals. They are not the dysfunctional, aggressive, unreliable low caliber types of the standard mugger or bugler.

    They hold down normal jobs. They can network between each other. They have an advantage when they form factions which help each other out. They share the same secret goal.

    The evidence did not get lost. Within the police there will be parts of this network. That is plain. The network, the members go a lot further than this.

    People only care if the abusers are Muslim. Otherwise it gets swept under the rug...obviously.

    This one (the ringleader) didn't. He'd been out of work for decades and on the dole.

    Now one may well argue that such economic predicaments should not preclude anyone from fostering a kid, but if one looks at the hoops that well-to-do couples have to go through (couples, mind you) and here a single male of doubtful means gets to foster a girl?

    Yeah, suspicion is massive.

    Right now "merely" the accused perps are on trial.

    Only the one or other "official, both in the police and in welfare department has been either temporarily suspended or simply moved "away" to another department.

    They're going to stonewall on this one, that much is clear.
