Baby P

baby-p-itvnews_1114545cThe tragic story about the failings of the system that resulted in the death of a young child. How many times have we heard this?

Anyway whilst the names of those involved are widely known in the media circles it has not been widely circulated outside the news industry, until now. No I am not going to name and shame, but if you don’t already know, you will probably receive a text message soon, giving the names and address of the alleged perpetrators of the acts of cruelty. I was surprised to receive one a few days ago.

I seem to recall that the names of various suspects in previous child murder and abuse cases being named in forums and across the net, but this is the first time I have known of it being circulated by text.
babyptext Remember that if you do publish the names of the suspects in any form, on the internet, you could be committing a offence. Someone with more legal knowledge than I may be able to advise, but I suspect that circulating this information by text could also be considered contempt of court.

  1. Someone already has published it on the web. Though the names have asterisks on the vowels, so maybe it’s not fully disclosed. Pretty dodgy ground though, as you said It’s most likely contempt of court.
