Back in September, a 14 year old girl in Oxford, England, told the police that she had been abducted by two men in a silver car and then raped in a wooded area. Unsurprisingly to followers of the current zeitgeist, the description she gave of her assailants led to the following police sketches being released:
Following this report, the local police investigated the case diligently, reviewing surveillance footage and dash-cam recordings, forensically examining wooded areas, and interviewing witnesses.
To what result?
Today the police announced, unsurprisingly to followers of the current zeitgeist, that the alleged abduction did not, technically speaking, actually happen.
The police continue to investigate the rape element of the girl’s claim. Given that the age of consent in England is 16, any sexual activity between a girl of 14 and an adult could be considered statutory rape, so it is entirely plausible that the complained-of “rape” in some sense took place — but under very different circumstances than the snatch-and-grab abduction off the street that the girl initially claimed.
So what actually happened? If I permitted myself a moment of speculation, I’d imagine that the underlying facts (if they ever emerge) will bear a strong family resemblance to the well-known goings-on in Rotherham involving an “Irish” sex gang which preyed on young white girls. Or, to cut a little closer to the quick, they will bear a strong family resemblance to the less-well-known goings-on in Oxford involving an “Irish” sex gang which preyed on young white girls.
You heard it here first.
