Strange that CEOP would boldly name its report according to the methodology used in assessing the data.

A Response to the CEOP Report: First Group of Videos
Regular readers are familiar with the writings of El Inglés, who has contributed numerous articles in the past to Gates of Vienna. For a complete list of his previous essays, see the archive listing in the last post in this series.
El Inglés has now branched out into the medium of video. The occasion of his effort was the publication last year of a report by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) on the epidemic of “grooming and pimping” cases in major British cities.
CEOP has obviously failed to execute its mandate with competence and due diligence. In the following videos El Inglés explains in some detail just exactly how it has failed, and what the likely consequences of its failure will be. Employing his customary meticulousness and attention to statistical detail, he pulls no punches in his examination of the failure of the social contract in the UK.
He says that he will write more on the same topic in this space at a later date, when he has time.
From the mission statement of CEOP:
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre is dedicated to eradicating the sexual abuse of children. That means we are part of UK policing and very much about tracking and bringing offenders to account either directly or in partnership with local and international forces.
But our approach is truly holistic…
That last sentence does not inspire much confidence in CEOP. A cynical reader might consider “holistic” to be synonymous with “lacking in methodological rigor, suffused with trendy jargon, and extremely politically correct.”
In any case, the CEOP approach has failed.
Its report, “Don’t Leave Victims Out of Mind, Out of Sight”, was released last summer. The press release announcing it is here.

The fourteen videos are broken out into four separate posts so that no single page will be overloaded with embeds. Below are the first four in the series.
