because of its bizarre nature, and the fact that the video taken by the women was discovered. In fact there are far worse things going on all around us, quite regularly. Child cruelty has been with us since time immemorial, and it's often extremely difficult to detect, which is why people get away with it on a grand scale.
Show me a deeply disturbed adult, and I'll show you someone who was very likely subjected to some form of cruelty as a child. Cruelty to children doesn't have to involve violence - there are many more subtle ways to make a child's life a living hell - deprivation of parental love being one of the most effective.
The, I do not know what to call him, piece of dirt who got done for dog fighting got 4 months prison. Does this once again say something of our justice system. Those women, the way they were acting on the news looked like they did not care one bit. Man or woman this lot are no different, stick them in prison, and not for 4 months.
I think Prince Williams split up with his girlfriend got more attention, or even my mention of Have I Got News for You which I made last Friday. Which goes to show what this country is coming to. Get your priorities right dear people.
What surprises me about this is the number of people involved. One or two nutcases agreeing to do this, whilst totally unacceptable, would make it seem less out of the ordinary than four people. What else, that no one is aware of, may they have done? As the FE says, child cruelty has always gone on and in much worse ways than in this story, but it still shocks me.
