If you are unfortunate enough to be rejected at the Pearly Gates, then for sure you will bump into these 2 animals – Tracey Connelly and Steven Barker.
For months the courts have banned any publication to reveal their identity until just recently when finally the courts lifted the ban and we can now see who these people are – and their crime? Torturing Connelly’s baby Peter to death!
It’s hard to fathom how anyone can perform these vile acts on a child but I am sure we can all agree that it is against the nurturing instincts most normal humans are born with. But month after month baby Peter was living out his short,17mth, life being beaten, thrown, tortured by Steven Barker, Connelly’s boyfriend, and Connelly sitting idly by allowing this to happen. At the time of his death, baby Peter had 50 injuries including a broken back and eight broken ribs.
It can be somewhat understandable that Connelly wasn’t a model citizen having been fathered by a convicted paedophile and raised by her drug addicted mother. Perhaps seeing this obese slob walking in the supermarket isle swearing at her children for taking a Mars bar could almost be expected. But to allow her boyfriend to beat her son while she watched hardcore porn and chain smoked is to me beyond subhuman. To be so completely detached from a child that she gave birth to, feed, changed diapers etc etc.. and to do nothing? It’s too hard to comprehend! I mean, when she gave birth to baby Peter surely she would have felt some kindly emotions towards him? No? What happened to those motherly feelings?
Steven Barker, convicted of raping a 2 year old girl and a suspect for sexually attacking other children, was brought up by his grandmother who also tortured him throughout his childhood. His upbringing, as disturbing as they were and could be argued that he was fighting some childhood demon, cannot excuse the tortures he performed on this helpless child. What sick pleasure, release, whatever, could he have felt by beating this poor helpless boy to death? And to keep on doing it?
Barker was given a life sentence and Connelly was given a 5 year sentence (but is appealing and could be released in 3 years). Now it may seem a bit unorthodox, but something inside of me wish they were released earlier. Not because I feel sorry for them as they both had horrid upbringings, but because prison is protection. If they were released earlier they will be exposed to the fury of the public and will live their lives in Hell on Earth – just like Baby Peter. That’s what I call real justice!
