Child grooming: Disturbing footage of 13-year-old girl telling cop she’s had 50 ‘boyfriends’
The youngster, who is being interviewed by police after going missing from home, tells the officer: “I don’t care if I went out and killed myself”
This disturbing video shows a 13-year-old abuse victim telling a cop that she has already had a staggering FIFTY boyfriends during her young life.
The unidentified teenager, who is being interviewed by police after going missing from home, then tells the detective: ‘I don’t care if I went out and killed myself.”
The interview was filmed by Sky News after it joined police child protection officers in Blackburn, Lancashire.
The problem of child grooming by men in northern English towns hit the headlines earlier this year when widespread abuse by gangs of often Asian men in towns places like Rotherham and Rochdale were revealed.
In this footage Detective Sergeant Mark Whelan speaks with the girl about why she went missing.
He asks her about kissing a person whose name is dubbed out.
When he asks if it was the first time she had ever been kissed, she said no, explaining that she had, had “about 50” other boyfriends.
She told the detective that she didn’t want to go home. When he asked where she did want to go, she said: “Would you like it if you went home and your mum started shouting at you and probably slapped you?
“Get treated like sh*t, self-harm yourself, feel like you’re going to commit suicide all the time.”
When DS Whelan asked her whether she self-harms, she said she does and that she doesn’t “care about anything.”
“I don’t care if I went out and killed myself,” she said.
