But when these stories come out they are all historic and this trend will continue unless people come forward when it happens.
Even now I will suggest even with all the media attention that the sort of things that come out historically are still going on hidden, with all the checks made on them. As we have known from the outset of checks made on people they have to be caught doing something first.
The safeguarding lead at school has a poster of things that cause concern on DBS clearances and not very many are directly against children, like we might imagine they would be. I was a little surprised when I saw it.
The recent football club stories do little more than highlight what we already know from all the other incidents like these, checks don't catch people who do these things, people coming forward do.
I don't think the ATC would be brave enough to air it's dirty laundry from however long ago. If people did come forward from 30+ years ago I suspect that HQAC / RAF would keep it quiet, which would not be good for the organisation.
