Now we have pious demands for legislation and for the authorities to 'do something' by the relatives:
Jade Lomas-Anderson’s uncle said it made him ‘sick’ that because the law on dog attacks does not cover private property, Bev Concannon will probably not face court.
‘Can everyone spread the word we want justice over these dogs and the owners so this cannot happen again,’ ‘Tucker’ Lomas, 29, wrote on Facebook.
Mr Lomas added: ‘This news is making me sick, saying the owners of these dogs might not be prosecuted because it was a private property. Disgusts me. We want justice for Jade.’Now, remember, this is a house she'd visited before, despite the dogs apparently being 'notorious in the neighbourhood'. Didn't Tucker raise any objections then?
We have witch-hunts & vigilante justice:
Miss Concannon, who was out shopping at the time of the attack, is said to be ‘distraught’ and co-operating with police.
One friend, Jayne ‘Pandora’ Acton, wrote on Facebook that Miss Concannon was ‘petrified because of muppets going for her to harm her’. She went on: ‘You are all talking about the dogs being dangerous and I have just read there are lynch mobs looking for her.
‘They are just as bad as the dogs, now leave it to the police.
‘We know it’s not right what has happened to Jade, and it could have been one of her own children, don’t forget.’And best of all, that favourite of the modern police 'service', the easy target and ancillary 'crime':
Police are investigating a posting by a ‘troll’ apparently mocking Jade’s death. The message by ‘Jake Williams’ said: ‘ I'm upset she didn't get raped/murdered; judging by her pics she deserves it.’There's more wrong here than can ever be fixed by mere dangerous dog legislation...
