Schoolboy's killer is a scumbag
THE EDITOR, Sir:
The SINTING who killed Nicholas Francis is actually mad! Red-eye, long-eye, covetousness are all akin to madness. How can a rational being have the audacity to demand what is not his to the point of committing a murder?
It is quite ironic that the killer ran. From whence did that glint of intelligence come?
Those who know him, or are responsible for him, must hand him over to the relevant authority so that his mental status may be assessed in the first instance.
Hand him over before he gets rid of himself. No. I take that back. He hasn't the courage to remove himself from the face of the Earth as insane as he is!
My profound sympathy to young Francis' family.
