Quick reply re. Ireland's comment. Yes, fundamentally women are as capable of evil (and good). But in point of fact, women form a minute percentage of serial killers. It's not unknown, just much rarer, which is why they are almost always more infamous.
As far as the Soham case is concerned, this point is absolutely crucial. At this time, Ian Huntley has been charged with NO OFFENCE, he is merely suspected of an offence. The girlfriend of this "scun" has been chared with obstructing the course of justice. Neither has been proven guilty of any offence. Don't wish to be judgemental, Ireland, but the gangs of egg throwing, rabid, self righteous tabloid reading assholes outside the courts are the scum here. If Huntley did kill those girls, his punishment will find him out. Until then, he MUST be presumed innocent. A very recent case his shown a man released from prison after 25 years for a crime he didn't commit. If in fact Huntley did not kill them, then whoever did is still at large. If after due legal process Huntley is convicted, he can justifiably be referred to as scum.
