Dear God, I thought I had problems.........

British soldiers are reknowned the world over for being all 'silly', 'soft' and 'gooey' where children are concerned.

Therefore, I ask, urge, plead, and beg that you all consider the revolting case of abuse that was settled by sentence earlier today.

A girl was born with cerebral palsy (I think I have problems!). She has been in care but sadly was returned to her natural parents.

These 'parents' have today been sentenced to 11 and a half and 10 and a half years for cruelty to this four year old girl. Really brave, two adults beating up a four year old girl - yes, that must have taken some courage.

Amongst the treatment handed out - the tiny girl had boiling water poured on her hands! It is reported that her skin was peeled and her bones were exposed ! Clumps of her hair were 'ripped out'. She was kicked in the groin frequently and so hard she had serious internal injuries.

Every night she was locked naked in a lavatory and forced, yes forced to eat her own faeces!

[align=center]Don't know if you can go on reading, but I can barely type.[align=justify]

Her injuries were so bad that she had to have a general anaesthetic simply to be examined properly!
The filth, the sub-human rubbish who did this are named SAMUEL DUNCAN and KIMBERLY HARTE

I pray that the two named above, who as I type are in jail, meet in their prisons some seriously, on a major scale unpleasant individuals who disapprove of cruelty to children.

Oh! please, please, if there is any justice, let Duncan and Harte come to painful, lengthy and unimaginably disgusting ends.
Heard this on the news earlier. Absolutely abhorrent. What sort of sick f*ck does this to anyone, let alone their own child?

What really gets me is how social services - who sent her back to her parents after initially removing her - missed this. They were meant to be continually monitoring the situation. Of course, an inquiry has found that the abuse was not permitted to occur due to the inaction of specific individuals. So social services get off scott free again.


I'm sure the scum (understatement) will get whats coming to them, their sentences seem light to say the least.

Is there any news on the condition of the little girl now and how she is being cared for?

This kind of thing really does pull at the heart strings. I hope she has a happy life from now on.


I dont consider myself 'silly' or 'gooey' - but harming defenceless children is the worst possible of crimes, maybe having a 4 year old daughter myself helps me to focus on this type of incident too much.

Fortunately the little girl survived but I hope these two individuals dont survive their stay in prison.

6pm Radio 4 news said that her condition has markedly improved or words to that effect.


In my opinion, crimes against children are the worst in the book.
Hanging really is too good for these two and one can only hope that, in prison, they are made to suffer some of the pain that they caused that poor little girl


The amount of anger i feel for them doesn't come close to the sorrow i feel for her. I hope they die a slow and painful horrific death, f ucking scum!!


War Hero
These two sick b@stards deserve to be kept out of segregation...


Makes you want the death penalty back!
This is why I believe there should be a death penalty in the UK. This case really does justify it. However, 10 years is such a small sentence for such depraved exisitence that I think the law and Govt. are way off the mark and years away from catching up to what people really want in this nation.

And the saddest thing, as the song goes, 'no one knows what's going on behind closed doors'. In other words, as I write this is happening in some home, somewhere near us, to a little child. We may or may not ever hear about it. That's what frustrates me, we can do nothing about it until after it has happened and then only dish out pathetic sentences. Like the man who raped a 12 month old baby, took pictures and posted them on the internet. He got 1 year in jail. Remember that?

But don't worry fellow ARRSE'rs, I have their names on my special list. If I flip I know where I'll be venting my anger.

I hope the dear little girl can overcome this and live a happy life, bless her.
10 years for that pair of sicko's, they'll probably be out on tag after 3. put 'em against the wall and shoot the fcukers.

I hope that young girl finds away to get over this and recovers from her injurys.
Something tells me when these two get to prison the locals are going to be giving them a very warm welcome. And I hope they cripple the b*stards.


When i heard the news what happened to this poor Innocent sweet little girl it made my skin crawl and It brought tears to my eyes to think monsters like those two things could harm her so badly

I pray that this little girl never as to endure this kind of treatment in her life again and that she finds a new family who will love her and look after as normal parents should

The gentleman from the Central Child Abuse Team, said: "This is without doubt the worst case of child abuse I have personally had to deal with.

"When I met the young girl she was in a terrible condition.

"But I'm now happy to report that she's improved dramatically with the care that she's now receiving."
