Let the beasts pay for their atrocities

Published:Monday | June 29, 2015 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Last week, it was reported across the media that two men from St Ann attempted to rape two young females, a student and an adult lady, and in their vulgar attempt one man, according to police reports, then proceeded to chop the lady in sections of her body which resulted in her death, while the student received injuries and was treated and released from the hospital.

The murder of that young lady was scandalous, regrettable and disgraceful, to say the least, and I do hope that the police are successful in apprehending those two criminals who need to be prosecuted, convicted and sentenced to long prison sentences.

Those beasts who inflicted such savage injuries deserve to be placed behind prison bars. They are monsters who have no place in society; and a strong message must be sent that such atrocities will not be tolerated in any way, shape or form in this country. A firm, stern and strong message must be sent to such persons that they will be imprisoned and possibly die in prison for such dastardly acts.

Condolences to the family of the young lady who was murdered and I do pray and hope that the other culprit will be caught.
