    'Justice' system makes me sad and mad!! 4th Dec 17 at 7:59 PM
    Just been reading about a case where it seems pretty clear that a man did something really terrible to his young child which resulted in her death. Wont mention details as its probably not allowed.
    Anyway, said person apparently refused to answer questions put to him in court. Why do we allow this?! If you are innocent surely you would answer in as much detail possible to convince everyone of your innocence?
    Then....even if found guilty of terrible crimes, offenders are jailed for such short amounts of time. The re offending rate is high too.
    As a supposedly leading nation, why is life so cheap here in the UK? If someone is guilty of a disgusting crime, why burden the tax payer housing and feeding them?
    I'm truly happy we have fair trials etc but I do think the overall system is way too soft. Its an insult to victims and the tax payer.

    Interesting that the OP thought it was "pretty clear" that the bloke had abused his child when at least one expert suggests it's not clear that that was the case.

    Moral of the story? Perhaps don't judge something unless you've heard both sides and all the evidence, which is what the inquest is doing.

    Maybe so, but there was another case this year where leg fractures were dismissed as accidental and it turned out not to be the case. The social workers ignored it and that ended in the murder of the child.

    So this child had old leg fractures, damage to her lungs, copious bleeding from the rectum with no sign of impacted faeces due to constipation, damage to her internal organs (according to a different pathologist), a father who refuses to co-operate and answer questions, and her DNA was found on his genitals.

    It may all be just coincidental but by anyone's account its not looking good. However, another pathologist claims that her injuries were caused by constipation and resuscitation attempts. So make of it what you will.
