Good grief!

This happened a few weeks ago didn't it? A young lad was arrested but now they're saying she did it herself????

What on earth is going on in the world?

There seems to be quite a few of these at the moment hitting the headlines, so very sad for the little children. You wonder what the world is coming to!

Truly appalling. Claiming that 'a big boy has done it'.

It takes a particular type of calculating criminal mind to commit the most heinous of crimes whilst at the same time plotting and planning whom they will try to blame it on.
