I have heard the reports on the radio that the so called f'cukwit parents of these murdering f'cukwits had a good laugh and a joke during the police interviewing.....WHAT THE HELL?
Indeed they were - It beggars belief.

With parents like that, then God help us. As the senior investigating officer in the case said: "The general attitude of the defendants' parents during the whole process has been appalling."
It was a truly horrific crime for the two scumbags to aim a flying kick at someone's face and then kick and stamp on their head as hard as they could. Sophie's hair was apparently pulled so hard that a piece of flesh was missing from her head, while her boyfriend Robert was kicked in the face with so much force that lace marks were left imprinted on his face.
Another sickening aspect of this dreadful case is the fact that the two scumbags had been found guilty of a similar attack on a 16-year-old boy close to the park four months earlier - kicking and stamping on the boy's head, but instead of being locked up they were given just a six-month community service order.
It's enough almost to make you weep when you think of how over a decade ago Tony Blair faithfully promised the electorate that New Labour would be "tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime".
Blair's New Labour cronies in the shadow cabinet such as Gordon Brown and Jack Straw all went along with Blair's "tough on crime" promise. I'd like Messrs Blair, Brown and Straw to visit the parents of the murdered girl to tell them that their vision of being "tough on crime" means a six-month community service order for kicking and stamping on someone's head.
I'd like Messrs Blair, Brown and Straw to explain to Sophie's parents that because they totally failed to build enough prisons over the last decade, thousands of criminals have been freed from jail early. The courts have been given instructions to take overcrowding in prisons into account and encouraged not to send offenders to jail, but to give them community service "punishments" instead.
By God, this country of ours is in a serious mess. There are massive
problems in our society and the soft sentences for violent criminals, together with the attitude of the liberal do-gooders, is doing us enormous damage.
We've got feral youths out of control on the streets, teachers unable to discipline out-of-control children, parents who don't seem to give a damn or have any sense of morality, politicians who tell us they are being "tough on crime" while in actual fact violent criminals are being freed from prison early, towns and cities blighted by drunken violence at night, Yardie gangsters with guns dealing in drugs and making certain places "no-go areas".
Many politicians with middle-class lives seem to be detached from the reality on the streets. I'd like Messrs Blair, Brown and Straw to spend a few weeks living on the top floor of a tower block on a sink estate in one of our inner cities and let them see for themselves the drunken violence, intimidation and drug-dealing that goes on.
It really is a massive mess in our society and I fear that things are going to get even worse.
