I love the line 'I didn't see any harm in toughening them up, I done the same with my own children'.

they really should not be allowed to reproduce.

good grief

slayerette · 15/02/2007 17:43

Oh. My. God. Permission to stop feeling guilty about my own mothering skills now, please? Because, FFS, I can't begin to imagine the kind of human being that would think that it's ok to do this.

"I didn't see any harm in toughening them up. I done the same with my own children.""


absolute disgrace, teaching toddlers to punch and hit , for the adults entertainment?

feel quite sick actually

Sadly I am not in the slightest but surprised.

We once had a mother tell us that her dd has a 'Right to defend herself' when the child had instigated the fight and it had taken two adult men to pull the daughter off the victim!

Some parents are just idiots!

Oh my God.

This report has really, really upset me. What a wicked way to treat two small children

tortoiseSHELL · 15/02/2007 17:46

It's horrible isn't it, like dog or cock fighting but with innocent little children.

I was astounded when I heard this on the news, it is beyond belief how stupid some people can be and how some people should never have children, never be allowed anywhere near children. These women are a complete disgrace.

Broke my heart when I heard the little boy refused to hit the girl, oh what a sweet child to have such monsters around him. With dts we sometimes have fights break out in this house but not arranged like boxing matches or anything, and it is my job to sort it out not egg them on, I'd rather they knew how to handle themselves without turning into thugs. I hope they are never allowed to have these children again.

And I hope the crocodile tears are seen as just that. They make me sick.

agree tortoiseshell - some kind of bizarre return to the 'good old days' of bear baiting...

Caligula · 15/02/2007 19:25

Jesus what vile people.

Are they all related to the kids? What a family.

TaylorsMummy · 15/02/2007 19:32

are they the mothers or what? Could be babysitters or something. Either way it's bloody horrible

suejonez · 15/02/2007 19:34

just heard this on the radio - the (police?)man being interviewed on the radio said that some of the women were related to the children but obviously he couldn;t be more specific as that would presumably identify the children. He said it was obvious that the children were distressed and didn't want to do it.

Sadly it doesn't surprise me, how awful

beansprout · 15/02/2007 20:12

It's the awful, "I don't want to" from the toddler that is the worst bit. We all know the little voice that would have been used for that.

Poor little boy

Jimjams2 · 15/02/2007 20:15

That's Plymouth for you!

clemsterdarcy · 15/02/2007 20:18

God -- they VIDEOD it.

These people are vile, vile, vile.

I just want to scoop both these children up and give them a big hug.

Can they actually love them ... there is just no way I can even see any glimmer here to understand.

Its like the Casey-Leigh stuff (sorry I just can't bring myself to type it) ... HOW and WHY ... what is going on in these people's heads ...

I can sort-of (NO WAY AM I CONDONING) unerstand their fucked-up brains in finding it stimulating to take advantage of teenagers ... but babies ...


I just do not comprehend. Can anyone explain this to me?

That is just awful, you know I am pretty seasoned, esp as I was a SW, but my god, that it is horrendous. Thats torture/abuse

divastropwantstodrop · 15/02/2007 20:27

sadly,i know people like this as well.its sickening.are they trying to breed the next generation of wife-beaters?

DaddyCool · 15/02/2007 20:27

this one actually made me feel sick to my stomach. some children just don't have a chance do they

it makes you just want to scoop up that boy, take him into your own home and let him forget the first little part of his life.
