What about the lives of these young white girls that have been ruined by these monsters ?. It is now time for the spineless GOVERNMENT TO REALLY CONSIDER BRINGING BACK CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR CRIMES LIKE THIS. How many more of these evil animals are roaming Britains streets in search for ''easy prey''. The Police and the Justice system have not only let down the familes of these young girls but they have let down the whole country.
Bring back the noose for ALL paedophiles.
