i'm sure anyone in the uk will have heard about the poor little 8 year old girl who was subjected to appalling abuse and killed.. i just feel so angry right now...how could so many police, doctors, social workers let her down and fail to act when the signs were so clear and pointed out to them?.
what are they there for, for goodness sake?.
they should all be sacked for incompetence and failing to do what they get well paid for.
