Mourn Porn And Orchestrated Grief At The Gravesend Raped Baby Show

by | 5th, December 2011

IN Gravesend, Kent, a baby has been raped. Well, so they say. The baby was beaten so badly that his heart stopped beating. Well, so they say. An infant is in a terrible way at King’s College Hospital. But the facts are sketchy. All we know for certain is that a man aged 35 and a woman aged 33 were arrested and released on police bail.

How serious is police bail? Well, the Home Office says :

If you’ve been charged with a serious offence, you may be refused release and remanded in custody until trial. If you are found guilty, the time spent in prison before trial will be deducted from your sentence.

This means your freedom will be restricted in some way. For example, a curfew may be imposed on you if your offence was committed at night.

If you’ve been charged with a serious offence, you may be refused release and remanded in custody until trial. If you are found guilty, the time spent in prison before trial will be deducted from your sentence.

But outside the home of the one-month old baby, a mob has formed. They are holding a candle lit vigil. The grim orchestrated public grief is in full swing. Teddy bears are on the pavement.
