Rotherham: Failure to act on abuse is criminal

PROFESSOR Alexis Jay's report outlining child abuse in Rotherham (Saturday Review, August 30) raises a number of serious questions about our society, and the values of individuals who clearly considered the protection of children less important than maintaining a camouflage of political correctness.

Of course, resignations may result, but it's not enough. Perhaps one way to ensure that morality is more likely to win the day in the future is to prosecute those who knew of these crimes and whose function it was to protect the children or uphold the law.
