Those 2 lesbians who killed that child....
I just cannot get over it....i watched Carte Blanche and then read it in the YOU mag.

How can a woman of THAT size hit a boy like that. How do you break his pelvis and arms etc. he was so badly hit that his brains were comming out, if he survived he'd be brain damaged.

How does a mother stand by and watch this happen?

If they did not want the kid why not give it to the father. And after all the father did and proved how COULD they give the child back to these two women?

They covered up his wounds with base so the father should not see and only after they swam did the father see. The childs cheek had a knife or some mark on it that he was hit with.

HOW do you vent your anger for whatever like that on any child ?
What's wrong with her? or it?!

I feel like I want to do something, like I need to do something but what ?

Emotionally i am not strong enough to go and help abused children etc...i'd crack. How the father kept himself from KILLING them I have no idea....it's the most horrible thing i've ever read.

This child (as the pathologist said) died the worst death and he had emmence pain. He was never treated for any of the parts on him that was broken. How do you have a child with a pelvis that's broken and you dont have him taken care of by a medical person?

EK KAN DIT NIE VERSTAAN NIE!

Its giving my nightmares.....

Hello CPM,
Certainly these were atricious acts of people of immense cruelty and lack of feeling. I think your mentioning them as "lesbian" is not a prejudiced assumption that any lesbian would be any the more likely to do something so awful than anyone else, but identifying the particular story as most of the media did ; so don't get too heated, Kate ! There are factors in this case, as reported, that suggest lesianism may have been relevant in this case, though no generalization to other lesbian or gay couples would be in the least appropriate. The horror of the extent to which they tortured this child would have made headlines had they been sun-worshippers or buddhists.

It does sound, as Chelle implies, that there are many aspects of this enormous tragedy that need to be closely examined. In the previous episode, a court might have found that there was not sufficient evidence to convict the woman of a crime ( I know no details of those events ) --- but that should not have meant that the child should have been carelessly given back to her for care. Was there some onscure prejudice against giving custody to the father ? On what grounds was he not given the child to care for, after he had apparently demonstrated how caring he was ? Someone needs to closely read whatever social work and care reports were relied on in such decisions.
As Mina says, we can't call these women "like animals" --- no animal on earth would treat their young like that --- indeed, animals rarely kill what they don't eat.
