Even at the University Level?

This letter appeared in today’s Observer 23.03.09, of course everyone within earshot of the story of the nine year old boy who was killed in St Thomas recently is appalled and it was alleged that he was sodomised by a man of unsound mind, one would have thought that a letter like this would not be coming from someone with a University email address and one wonders now if that campus is indeed an intellectual ghetto as described by a popular talk show host.

Where is the thinking?
Why not wait until the investigations are finished?
What about Innocent until proven guilty?
Doesn’t this writer understands the clear differences between a paedophile and a gay or bisexual person?

Take Action!: flood the email below with your concerns and comments on this awful letter, do so however with love.

The Letter
Dear Editor,

There is a stench in this country surrounding homosexual and bisexual men who constantly sodomise young boys and girls. It was with disgust that I read about the nine-year-old boy whose life was so brutally snuffed out by someone who news reports said was of “unsound mind”.

Are we kidding ourselves, or are we in denial? What is the government doing to protect innocent children from these obvious scumbags of society? Why is homosexuality not a crime, but yet we still have the Buggery Act? And why is it that when these men are “caught in the act” they are not imprisoned? It is appalling to know that some of these men are merely sent off with a pat on the back! What is going on in this country?

Mr Prime Minister, this is a suggestion to you and the people whom you appoint to protect us. Start hanging the bastards! To all the human rights watchdogs: whose rights are more important? The criminals’ or the victims’? This foolishness needs to stop! Murder, traffic violations, illegal taxis, are not the only crimes in this country. Sex crimes are infesting this country like maggots on a dead carcass and we need to come together and put a stop to it!
