Ugh, sickening people. Mum doesn't look right- eyes seem very distant perhaps, makes you wonder what abuse she'd been subjected to herself- but it is never ever ever OK to allow a child to be ahrmed to spare yourself.
As for the men involved we have a word back home for them- scrotes. Dehumanised, cruel, rapist scum.
My mother was beaten by my father for years She lived in fear of him but I know, without a shadow of a doubt, she would have cut his throat before she stood by and let something like that happen. I so hope that poor woman can rebuild her life.
I think the old saying "I would die to protect my child" is what decent parents feel and would do, f* most of us would step in for any child and run the risk of dying, this woman is obviously void of any kind of feeling.
That woman Dana is utterly courageous, I remember the previous trial, of the neighbours who abused her. It would seem that the mother didn't really bother how many men had their way with her little girl.
The details are here and obviously going to upset people as it is worse than this story. Sorry for people who are anti-DM but I couldn't find the Scotsman article. When I read it I felt ill, all those years. The mother deserves something more punishing than jail as do the perverts in that ring.
Dana Fowley should make anyone who dares complain about their childhood shut up - what she went through and what she has done to see justice happen.
