What are grooming gangs in United Kingdom, and why is it a political issue?
PM Rishi Sunak just addressed the issue of grooming gangs in UK (gangs that kidnap / "adopt" underage females, oftentimes poor, oftentimes immigrants, oftentimes disabled, and then "groom" them for prostitution). Why does a special task force need to be created to tackle this issue? Shouldn't it be a law enforcement issue?
These are like any other miscreants in the society which should be handled by a law enforcement team.
Or is there more to these gangs that needs special attention?
