Some 4,000 men from the UK have been identified as active users of a single online chatroom monitored by investigators in 2017, said Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs' Council lead on child protection. However, there are much more men interested in sexually abusing children, the police official warned, having put the number of such potential offenders at over 20,000. There is a roughly equal number of current and former terrorist suspects, he pointed out.

Some 72,000 referrals of online child sexual abuse imagery were received by the National Crime Agency in the first 11 months of 2017, Bailey revealed. He suggested that children at schools should be warned of the dangers of sexual abuse in the same manner they are advised on how to react if caught up in a terrorist attack.

“We need the same warnings about sexual abuse in schools, in the same way as we do for terrorism,” Bailey said. He added that a child from any family is a potential victim for pedophiles, saying that the threat “does not recognise social status.” Even the “very caring” and “educated parents who think they are internet-savvy” may have their children targeted by predators.

“At Christmas, parents buy children internet-enabled technology. They need to understand the risks,” he warned, saying that a growing threat to children comes from live streaming on such platforms as Facebook, Twitter and other social networks. “Technology has afforded an access to children that people who have a sexual interest in children never had before.”

“There is just not the capacity” to deal with all of the offenders, according to Bailey, who said police have to "prioritise the threat" and concentrate on the most dangerous ones, with "lower-level offenders" avoiding detection. “There are hundreds of officers tackling this now... Thousands and thousands still would not be enough.”

Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
