THREAD (PART 4 of 4): Why you shouldn’t trust @QuilliamOrg ‘s report on #groominggangs & the claim that 84% of “grooming gang offenders” are Asian. An evidence-based critique. 1/
More specifically, relative to the general population, Asians were actually underrepresented (at 4%) among the approx. 6,200 defendants prosecuted in 2015/2016 for sexual offences flagged as related to child abuse. (bit.ly/2MRsQQV) 2/
People often say it’s deflecting to point out that Asians are not overrepresented at national scale. They say categories like all sex offences or even all child sexual abuse are too broad & we need to look at specific subsets. 3/

THREAD (PART 3 of 4): Why you shouldn’t trust @QuilliamOrg ‘s report on #groominggangs & the claim that 84% of “grooming gang offenders” are Asian. An evidence-based critique. 1/
It ignores well-known biases in crime data, such as whether victims disclose (‘self-selection bias’), whether reports are investigated/prosecuted (‘institutional bias’) & whether convictions make the news (‘media bias’) 2/
If using news sources, it's a big mistake to overlook #mediabias – especially as coverage of “grooming gangs” has been very racialised. Crimes involving sex, children & race ‘sell' & stories fitting an established narrative tend to get more coverage. (bit.ly/2q7WLKq) 3/

The report’s own definition of “this specific crime profile” is far from specific. The two supposed “distinguishing factors” could and do apply to numerous forms of child sex abuse: “typical grooming techniques” & groups of two or more offenders. 2/
Were crimes against male victims included in the analysis? If not, why not? What about abusers operating online, in schools, places of worship, sports clubs etc? We know from elsewhere that grooming & group abuse happen in these contexts too. 3/

First, let’s be clear: some Asian men have committed horrific sexual offences against children.The offenders we’ve seen on the news are real & they are certainly not the only ones.I’m not downplaying their vile crimes or the harms caused.I truly mean no disrespect to survivors.2/
I understand the anger, upset & outrage about “grooming gangs”. I don’t have lived experience of child sexual exploitation (CSE). I don’t have all the answers. But what I do know very well is research - & specifically around CSE (bit.ly/2ER2Uox). 3/
