I've heard a lot of folks today expressing satisfaction that these scumbags were found guilty for doing what they did to that poor little girl. But I say, hold on folks, guilty is all well and good, but wait for the sentences before you rest easy. The same with the following.news.com.au - A jury in the North Island city of Rotorua [New Zealand] today found brothers Michael and Wiremu Curtis guilty of murdering toddler Nia Glassie, and found Nia's mother Lisa Kuka guilty of manslaughter. Other defendants were found guilty of lesser crimes.
During the month-long trial the jury heard some of the accused had played a role in putting the little girl in a clothes dryer and turning it on, while those around them laughed. At various times Nia was also hoisted onto a clothes line and spun around until she flew off, and had wrestling moves performed on her, prosecutors said.
She eventually died in hospital after she was kicked hard in the head by the Curtis brothers, it was alleged. ......Nia was not taken for treatment for the kick to the head until about 36 hours after she lapsed into a coma. A doctor told the court that if the little girl was taken to hospital as soon she was unconscious she likely would have survived.
They don't have capital punishment in New Zealand or Britain, and I'd be very surprised if they get life, as in rot-in-jail-till-you're-dead, without parole. I'm thinking, 20, maybe 30 years at the most in the New Zealand case and you can see what it'll be in Britain, a whole 14 years! Now there's some real deterrence and justice for ya. *spit*SMH - [Britain] Two men have been convicted of causing or allowing the death of a toddler who suffered a broken back and more than 40 horrific injuries during a campaign of domestic violence even though they were on a council's "at risk" register. Although 17-month-old Baby P was seen regularly by doctors and social workers in the London borough of Haringey, he was used as a "punch bag" and by the time of his death in August last year resembled a car crash victim, the Old Bailey has heard.
One of the detectives involved in the case said the little boy had more than 50 injuries - 15 of them around his mouth. ......Baby P was covered in sores and bruises, had missing finger tips and nails, had bite marks on his head and would have been paralysed from the waist down due to his broken spine. The court heard that his back had been broken by slamming him down over a bent knee or a bannister. ......The three all face up to 14 years in prison.
Believe it or not, the murderers can't even be named, for legal reasons, don't ask me why since Baby P is dead. Perhaps it's because the public might get hold of them and deal out some proper justice, like anyone's going to lose sleep if that were to happen.
I'm just glad there is a God and Nia and Baby P are now with him in his kingdom, free from the torment and suffering inflicted by these wretched bastards and that he'll deal with this evil scum when their time using up valuable oxygen here is done.
