Babysitting redux

Author: Helen

When a couple is so dysfunctional, so mad or evil and stupid, as to starve their twin toddlers to death in their own house (besides letting the preschoolers roam free in the street begging for scraps), guess which member of the equally culpable pair is made to carry the can, even now, in the 21st century?

Their father, a senior manager on a major city road project, claimed he had not seen or cared for the twins for six months despite living in the same house.

Lawyers for the man argued there is not enough evidence to support a murder charge because he did not have responsibility for the childen’s care.

There are no words.

We need more draconian laws!

C’mon, people…

They‘ve killed 261 people in Victoria in 2004, and already killed another 264 in 2005, to date. More, by the time you read this.

High school kids seem to be particularly vulnerable – even babies and toddlers aren’t spared.

They killed 522 in NSW in 2004.

The annual body count to the end of February 2005 was 1558 for the whole of Australia (for the 12 months March 2004-February 2005).

So you can see the threat is real. We have to take this seriously. This is unacceptable!

…Oh, sorry, you were talking about terrorists? I meant cars.

Carry on, then.
