South Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) rejected calls for his resignation Wednesday following a shocking report into the abuse of hundreds of young people in Rotherham. The report, commissioned by Rotherham Council and published Tuesday, revealed that some 1,400 minors were sexually abused in the Yorkshire town over a 16-year period.
