  1. Disgusting horrible tramps should look at one person family who live on [street removed – admin] poor girl there all wimps takes 4 for one girl and she still standing shame on u parents

  2. You would think lessons had be learnt from the Sophie Lancaster case but obviously not. These thugs need to be taught a very harsh lesson in life that you can’t go around thinking it’s big and powerful to do stuff of that nature. They need severe punishment ! And it needs to be put out there that if you want to act the big tough smart arse then you will have a high price to pay.
    Dragged up. Parents who just let their kids do what the hell they like. Their parents should be just as much to blame for their behaviour.
    I feel for the victim. I really hope she recovers from this abuse and it don’t affect her self esteem ! Also police need to do more against bullies and their little superior gangs they roam in.

  3. These bullies are the scum off the earth. As somebody earlier said these maggots should be named and shamed along with there family. If that was my daughter behaving that way I’d call the police myself on her. I’d be so ashamed of her and would hope they throw the book at her. I hate bullies with a passion and it should be treated as a serious crime
    I only pray that there victim is receiving support not only from her family but also counselling. Our best wishes go out to her.
