Racist cruelty does not belong here
I was terribly saddened to hear of the death of a young Melbourne girl last week. She was mauled by a dog.
I was equally horrified to see this article in The HeraldSun.
Facebook is an international site so it is perceivable the posts came from outside Australia, but I know in my heart this is a naive thought. Some may well have, but I know not all did. While The HeraldSun is a tabloid, this has been reported in other media.
This is a CHILD who was mauled to death by a dog while her father was overseas. How anyone can make the sort of attacks reported in this story is beyond me.
Are these mindless teenagers with nothing better to do, who think it is funny? Where are their parents?
Are they the usual batch of internet trolls? Are they actual white supremacists? I don’t care who or what they are, what they did is inexcusable and should be punished – yet the perpetrators will probably never be found and are no doubt too cowardly to come forward.
