  1. Two babies aged one and four. How they must have suffered long before the perpetrator finally killed them. Cruelty like this doesn’t just pop out when the sadist has a bad day. It finally ends up in deliberate murder. Again and again this happens in this horrid little country. Put your teddy bears and balloons and flowers down people, and in three days forget all about it. And nothing is done. Nothing will ever be done.
