#1 In England, it *is* racist to investigate Muslims. Period. Regardless of what they actually *did*, doesn't change the fact that it's racist.

#2 Appears similar to the recent Virginian-Pilot scandal. Perhaps there is an ugly virus circulating.

#4 The BBC adds this critical detail about the original 2008 report:

The teenager was arrested outside a takeaway in Heywood in August 2008 for being disruptive.

She alleged one of the workers had groomed and then raped her.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) investigated Kabeer Hassan and another man, aged 59, but it was nearly a year later when a CPS lawyer decided to drop the case.

According to Nazir Afzal, chief prosecutor for the North West, the lawyer had viewed six hours of video testimony from the girl and also had DNA evidence, but decided "she would not be viewed as a credible witness by a jury".

The file of the girl's allegations was one of the first on Mr Afzal's desk when he started his new job in the summer of 2011 and he took "an immediate decision" to prosecute Hassan and the 59-year-old man.

#7 Probably because they were taking notes and/or helping pick the targets?
