article imageOp-Ed: Bellfield trial delayed; more paedophiles convicted

By Alexander Baron     Jun 10, 2011 in Crime
A report on the delay in the trial of Levi Bellfield for the murder of 13 year old Amanda Dowler, and on two recent cases of child abuses in the UK.
According to the documentary maker Matthew Rudge who has an interest in this case, the trial of Levi Bellfield has been delayed due to a juror being taken ill. There has been no word from the Central Criminal Court for the past few days, but if the person concerned has not recovered by Monday it seems likely the case will continue with eleven jurors. The only real alternative would be to rule a mistrial and start all over again, unless the DPP decided that any further action would not be in the public interest. Convicted murderer Bellfield has already been told he will never be freed, and police are still reviewing other unsolved crimes with which he may yet be charged.
This week, two more shocking cases of paedophilia and betrayals of trust made headline news in the UK. First, 20 year old nursery worker Paul Wilson was convicted at Birmingham Crown Court of two counts of the oral rape of a pre-school girl and a further 45 charges of making and distributing indecent images and inciting youngsters to engage in sexual activity on the Internet.
Then Nigel Leat, a 51 year old teacher from Bristol, was convicted of a total of 36 offences against young girls: one count of attempted rape, 22 of sexually assaulting a child under 13, and eight of sexual assault by penetration. He is said also to have admitted to four other charges including two of possessing indecent images of children. Both men pleaded guilty.
Although both are extremely serious, the case of Leat should obviously give the authorities more cause for concern because his campaign of abuse began five years ago, although in view of his age it is not unlikely that he started much earlier than that.
Leat’s sentencing has been postponed until Tuesday, and like Wilson he can expect a sentence well into double figures, and quite possibly a life sentence.
Their convictions come less than a month after the manufactured controversy involving Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke whose comments about some rapes being more serious than others was twisted out of context by people with political and other agendas, and used in a failed attempt to bludgeon him into resigning. Does anyone with half a brain think a borderline case of date rape is in the same category as that of a man who forces himself on a three year old girl?
The Wilson case is all the more disturbing because it is the second case of a nursery worker being convicted of offences against very young children in less than two years, the first being that of self-styled paedo-whore Vanessa George.
In recent years there have been a number of measures intended to prevent these sort of abuses including the Sex Offenders’ Register and Sarah’s Law, but there is a far simpler way of protecting young girls from many predators, that is to ban men from working with them.
It is the doctrine of political correctness that has been responsible for most of the sexual disasters of the past three decades. If nurseries were staffed exclusively by women, and young girls were taught only by women teachers, most of these situations would not arise. The case of Vanessa George was a one-off; female sexual predators are extremely rare, women who prey on young boys are all but unknown, and even George does not appear to have committed her crimes for her own sexual gratification but to curry favour with one of the psychos she met through Facebook, a man of course.
There is absolutely no reason for men to be allowed anywhere near young girls, except perhaps homosexual men who have been given a clean bill of health. Sometime ago it was suggested that women who are examined intimately by male doctors should be chaperoned; if this measure were introduced it would stop not only the rare cases of sexual abuse of women patients by doctors but would also protect doctors from false allegations, something to which they (like teachers) are particularly vulnerable due to troubled women misreading their professional concern for something else and then reacting with venom when they realise the truth.
Islam and Orthodox Judaism have long operated such practices, but modern secular humanists think we are so superior to our forefathers, and this is where it has led us. Women have traditionally been kept out of the military for the same reason.
