I am sure we have all heard the story of little Daniel Pelka and, whilst I normally keep the blog to local issues, I feel that I am so disgusted by this case I wanted to put my thoughts out there. However, after hearing about this story I am completely disgusted, as I am sure everyone else is.
For me surely this has to open the debate about the death penalty as people that do this kind of crime should pay with their lives. I understand that some murder cases are less clear and maybe life for them kind of sentences may be correct but evil like this is should be killed.
What is also worrying here is that the teachers noticed that he was getting thinner and also he was stealing food. So they locked up the food. To me I think sacking these teachers would be appropriate as they saw the signs but not only did nothing to help him but made his situation worse by locking up the food. This proves that they saw the warning signs and did not act.
My opinions might be controversial, they might be harsh but I believe that they are appropriate. One thing is that we are seeing is these kind of murders who are not only murders but evil. Surely we should rid the world and our country of evil?
