Baby Peter’s tormentors are unmasked

with 11 comments

Baby Peter

So Baby Peter’s tormentors have finally been named.  It hardly comes as a surprise yet I fail to see what good this will do apart from sell a few papers.  Peter lived a short life, full of unimaginable cruelty, which was cut short by his father and uncle while his mother looked on.  His injuries beggar belief, broken spine, fractured skull and numerous internal injuries.  All delivered, courtesy of the people who should have loved him the most.

Tracey Connelly and Barker

The parents are the least savoury people since Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, devoid of pity or compassion.  The mother, revealed as Tracey Connelly, 28, had a long history of abuse, which she then passed on to her offspring.  Her own mother was a drug-addicted prostitute and Tracey spent most of her childhood around social workers.  She became familiar with their methods and learned how to play on the weaknesses of the system.

Her choice of partner was Steven Barker, 33.  His brother, Jason Owen, is also accused of abusing little Peter.

The two brothers had a long history of violence and viciousness.  In the 1990s they had been accused of holding their own Grandmother in a wardrobe until she agreed to change her will.  Tragically she died before the case could get to court.

Barker and Connelly were also tried, secretly, for the rape of a two year old in the weeks preceding baby Peter’s death.

What in God’s name were these people doing walking the streets?

Baby Peter was on the Haringey council’s list of high risk child abuse cases.  In spite of being visited no less than sixty times, he was not taken into care.  The question everybody is asking is: why not?

Haringey council have yet to provide a satisfactory answer.

  1. Today I was sitting @ my computer and got an e-mail about this lil girl whom got beaten to death and CAS which it is called in canada came and didn’t do anything about it.

    Then I went on a social site again just a few min ago and seen this on one of my friends profile’s, so I clicked on it and started reading and then crying and my heart just broke into a million piece’s, I m 21 and have a 3year old son and I would never dream about hurting him in anyway @ all.
    It make’s me sick thinking and reading about how many ppl hurt there children and allow other ppl to hurt there children. and how could CAS not do anything about this 60times with in 7months they just didnt want to see what was right infront of them……How can they still have there jobs, The mother, the mother’s b/f and the b/f’s brother should all b thrown in jail and to rot…..But nothing they do to them will ever b close to what they did to baby peter………

    • i agree whole heartedly, i htink its absolutley ridiculous that the doctor would just have dismissed him in the middle of an abuse exam like that simply because he was fussy and agitated, that examination could have save that kids life. Just taking 10 min out of your day for what u may see as a minor inconvienice could have saved his life he had broken ribs for christs sake i just cant believe this happened i hope thier prison inmates treat them as good as they treated a defensless child
      God Bless You Peter

  2. This story has just broken my heart! I cannot believe NO ONE did anything to help this poor baby. He couldn’t tell anyone what he felt. Someone should have stepped up and helped him. I am sure ANYONE would have taken this child in to care for. I know i would’ve! I have a son and it’s so sad to hear these stories. On another story page it states that they may receive the maximum sentence of 14 years. 14 years!!??? Come on, they need LIFE W/O the possibility of parole. Or give them death sentence in my opinion…..

  3. I am really really saddened by this case and about all cases of this nature. Unfortunately, every country in this world has the same type of bureaucratic bullshit with either Child Protection or the Justice System in general……some are worse than others.
    Giving anyone less than the death penalty or Life in prison without parole for child abuse/murder is a joke….even bigger joke?????? GIVING THEM NEW IDENTITIES?????? Where was Peters identity?

    I didnt know about this case until i received the video via Facebook. I have sent it to all my friends and asked that they do the same. I don’t have the words to express how I feel after watching that video, but I do know that the perpetators that did that to little Peter are not human not even animals, they don’t have a category in my opinion.
    There is so many questions about how children can go under the radar with authorities when these same authorities were notified. How can the police make his paternal father give him back to the thing that gave birth to him after he tried to rescue him? I bet his real dad is devastated that he wasn’t backed up by the right people.
    Peter is now in the hands of God who will look out for him and never let anything happen to him again.

    We as people whether you are a parent or not, have to spread the word that the System of protecting these little darlings is failing and the justice for the bastards doing this and even spreading child porn should be brought to justice and given the maximum penalty for these horrendous crimes.

    Please spread the Peter Connelly video around to as many people as you can and go to your local members and let them know that we need to put an end to Child Abuse!!!!!!

  5. Not only are these three monsters responsible for this baby angel Peter’s death, but so are the authorities for repeatedly throwing Peter back into that evil pit. They are responsible for that boy’s murder, they may as well have done it themselves because they repeatedly gave these offenders their victim back to Kill. Sick. They will all be punished by God.

  6. I am sickened by this story. To think that anyone, espically a mother can sit by and allow her child to endure such pain is beyond my comprehension. I am a mother to a son who is now at the age Baby Peter was when his life was ended by the stupidity of the Child Protective service… and the doctors who saw signs of abuse and did nothing and his mother, step father, and step fathers brother. This is OUTRAGOUS! I agree with the whole death penalty or life in prison. I hope they all burn in hell… all the doctors social workers and the people who did this first hand. They all had some part to do with it. But they should all BURN IN HELL too.

  8. I am starting to believe that this world is a dark cruel place, a place where the scream for help from a child cant be herd. how many children have to die before we take matters into our own hands. i live in Adelaide, Australia and i see young mothers who are children themselves still walking around freely with their babies in no more than a nappy when it is 12 degrees outside and raining, i see there cuts and their bruses and i am filled with anger. i also see police ignoring these babies screaming out for help, i see them walk straight past. straight past the child to go bust a drug deal. i have no faith in the system ,but i do have faith in humanity and i know that if we band together we can stop this from happening ever again. i will never turn a blind eye to any child, no matter what happens to me i will do everything i can to save these children. even if it means my life for theirs, because i can fight for them but they cant fight for themselves.

  9. Sadly our society has broken down because the liberal elite who run our nation have socially engineered it to be this way, they hate people being stigmatised or feeling shame, they believe in freedom but no responsibility, we are not allowed to chastise our children, our teachers have no control because it has been taken away from them, there is no civility anymore in our society, we have children giving birth to children and we are told that our children need more and more sex education? How come our Mothers and Fathers generation did not suffer the ills to which our society has befallen?

    The answer to today’s problems are that our politicians no longer regard FAMILY as the number one most important structure in our society, our political leaders keep on telling us that any sort of lifestyle is OK so long as your happy, you can be transexual, bi-sexual, Gay, Lesbian, whatever you like and it is all the same as a heterosexual lifestyle, a man and a woman married living together, our morals have been lost, we no longer know what is right or wrong, criminals now run the streets and law abiding citizens are being criminalised for minor offences.

    The baby P case is a symptom of a much wider problem that has been getting worse since the early sixties, punishments need to be much more severe for such scum as the three involved in that case, I believe for child murder and several other such serious offences we need to bring back CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, it’s time the decent people were listened to by the politicians for once, after all it is us who actually pays their WAGES??????
