Anybody watching?

FrickingFedUp Thu 16-May-13 21:09:29

In floods already. May have to turn over. Why do such awful things have to happen to people, and poor innocent children? sad

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 21:11:35

I cannot even try to.imagine what the families go through.

FrickingFedUp Thu 16-May-13 21:14:56

I know. To lose someone is bad enough, but for it to happen in such horrifying circumstances... Those poor kids who pretty much witnessed their dad murdering their mum... And he has parental rights?! Fucking insane.

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 21:19:33

Fucking insane, damn right!

The Lady thanked God everyday for her life with her family...


GibberTheMonkey Thu 16-May-13 21:21:25

It's so sad sad
I need to remember to appreciate more

Imagine trying to deal with it and on too of that its all in another language

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 21:23:29

I wonder.if the attack on her DS was racist...

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 21:26:13

Oh sadsadsad

FrickingFedUp Thu 16-May-13 21:26:35

Got this is getting me. Dd (2 yo) is just starting to notice the colour of my eyes. Poor, poor children.

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 21:37:21

GibberTheMonkey Thu 16-May-13 21:41:32

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 21:44:37

Tobagostreet Thu 16-May-13 21:54:25

Crying my eyes out.

My heart hurts for those families, particularly the 3 kids left with no mum, and a dad in prison.

GibberTheMonkey Thu 16-May-13 21:54:45

And the ones who are having to fly to Germany all the time. So expensive and thats not even accounting for loss of earnings etc

MrsMorello Thu 16-May-13 21:54:49

Crying my eyes out watching this, it's so sad hmm

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 21:58:03

PseudoBadger Thu 16-May-13 22:01:17


Tobagostreet Thu 16-May-13 22:03:50

Sole, I think that's just for the part at the beginning, while the press are allowed in court

Dumpylump Thu 16-May-13 22:05:40

Poor poor Callum sad

PeppermintPasty Thu 16-May-13 22:06:10

God that poor little boy, trying to protect his mum from his bastard father. Awful awful awful.

Tutti Thu 16-May-13 22:06:22

It's so so sad.... Those poor families.

That poor boy callum (sad)

PseudoBadger Thu 16-May-13 22:10:20

It's so awful. And the matter of fact way the little girl spoke sad
Callum is so brave.

Tobagostreet Thu 16-May-13 22:11:45

Heartbreaking listening to Kallum - poor kids hmm

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 22:13:13

Thank you Tabagi x

Callum needs theraoy. He is a lovely, bright boy.

JamieOliveOil Thu 16-May-13 22:15:23

Oh Callum, wish I could hold him sad

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 22:16:09

Not guilty WTF

Mindyourownbusiness Thu 16-May-13 22:17:58

I was going to watch this but decided l already feel too low and decided not too. Had a horrible couple of weeks with a young man commiting suicide whose father my DH is very close friends with and their DCs went to school together etc. Also another young man (a neighbours son) has died unexpectedly in very different circumstances.
I keep torturing myself for some stupid reason best known to myself by imagining getting that knock on the door (l have an adult son similar age) so l thought 'err no, maybe not' when l pressed the i button on this programme ! sad

GibberTheMonkey Thu 16-May-13 22:19:45

Probably wise myob
It's very draining and emotional

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 22:20:34

Understandable Mindy, you have nothibg to reproach yourself about.

Best not to watch things like this if having a low day x

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 22:26:46

Sally Anne...very strange..this world sad

Tobagostreet Thu 16-May-13 22:28:29

I have mixed feelings about the not guilty verdict.

The victim looked like a lovely boy, I feel so bad for the mum hmm and would be baying for blood if I were in her shoes.

But the perpetrator was a 14 yr old boy who threw one punch - would he have really thought for a minute that it could kill someone? If that was my son, I would be devastated and think it was a gross miscarriage of justice if he were found guilty hmmhmmhmmhmmhmm.

It's an awful, sad, horrible situation.

GibberTheMonkey Thu 16-May-13 22:29:42

Jackie is wonderf

Mindyourownbusiness Thu 16-May-13 22:30:00

Yes l can imagine but l do keep getting this absurd urge to watch it anyway. It's like when someone says 'ewww, don't look, whatever you do' and you can almost feel this invisible force pulling your head round to look. l am obviously losing the plot

Think l need a drink.

GibberTheMonkey Thu 16-May-13 22:30:12


(Only three words and I get it wrong)

GibberTheMonkey Thu 16-May-13 22:31:31

Fucking Essex council

MrsMorello Thu 16-May-13 22:32:14

Gibber My thoughts exactly! I can't believe Lee's mum lost her job. Fucking terrible.

Tobagostreet Thu 16-May-13 22:32:20

Jackie is amazing - something wonderful in the kids lives thanks

SoleSource Thu 16-May-13 22:34:30

Murder workers is a horrible title

Highlander Thu 16-May-13 22:34:44

What an utter disgrace that that woman lost her job angry angry

nenevomito Thu 16-May-13 22:35:54

Yes I'm watching this and the bit with the children had me absolutely howling. Those poor kids. Their poor mum.

nenevomito Thu 16-May-13 22:39:11

TobagoStreet - I had a friend killed by one punch about 20 years ago. Someone punched him outside a nightclub. Just once, but it was so hard and he fell back and hit his head on the kerb, lost consciousness, never woke up. Died.

The bastard who did that got a light sentence too. But he'd KILLED someone by being violent. If you kill someone by doing an act of violence, then you bloody well deserve to be locked up.

Tobagostreet Thu 16-May-13 22:53:15

Totally understand and not trying to take away from the fact that it was a horrendous and violent act - even that one punch.

Just looking at it from a different angle too, saying that if it was my 14 yr old kid, who (under threat, bravado or otherwise) punched someone once, there is no way I would ever expect that a single punch would or could result in someone losing their life. And I don't think many 14 yr olds would expect that either.

It's such a sad situation.hmm

Highlander Thu 16-May-13 22:58:39

If a 14 year old of mine was punching like that - I'd wonder what the hell I'd done wrong as a parent.

FrickingFedUp Fri 17-May-13 00:28:06

Murder workers may seem a horrible title - but it describes what they do - support victims of murder.

I work in a job where there is a chance you may come across some very difficult stuff - but nowhere near the level that these workers need to deal with. Hats off to them for doing it - I on't think I could cope, but it is a job that needs to be done, and I am so glad that victims families seem to have good support.

I found myself watching this in bed Thursday night and I slept very badly after sobbing myself to sleep.

Most of the time I seem to filter out all the violence and horror stories we are bombarded with all the time.

My desensitisation broke down when it came to the case of Marie and her beloved son Lee. To see that footage of those monsters carrying his body to leave in the street haunted me all day yesterday.

I told my son about it last night and was crying all over again. I am so glad that she had a wonderful partner and Lee's siblings to help her through it. I am at a loss to understand how people can brutalize each other in this way.

All the stories were awful but it was that one and the grief etched on her face that stayed with me.

The fact she lost her job was just unbelievable!

fiddlemethis Tue 21-May-13 22:16:01

Allofaflumble, I keep replaying those scenes myself in my head and I just cant get my head around people treating another human being like a side of beef. Carting him out then dumping him on the floor. The way the one wrapped his arm around the others shoulders like "a job well done" type of comeradery was sickening. I have so much respect for these other mothers who have had to live through something like this. I can't help but feel like wrapping my 2 girls up in cotton wool, something like that would destroy me

pigletmania Tue 21-May-13 22:50:12

I just watched it. I was so sad for all of them, but kallums father has got parental rights after taking their mums life in front of them, what a fucking joke. I am glad the legal system saw sence, and awarded full arental rights to the gran

pigletmania Tue 21-May-13 22:54:23

I was horrified f the footage of Thse scum carrying less bdy and dumping it on the street like a piece of rubbish
