Billboard News Headlines again, Yesterday here in Johannesburg, South Africa, little 2 year old "GANG RAPED" and it really hasn't caused a big uproar or any major shock around the country, because it is becoming more common here. We need to bring back the DEATH SENTENCE to stop this from happening, that is, IF these thugs are ever brought to justice.

Billboard News Headlines again, Yesterday here in Johannesburg, South Africa, little 2 year old "GANG RAPED" and it really hasn't caused a big uproar or any major shock around the country, because it is becoming more common here. We need to bring back the DEATH SENTENCE to stop this from happening, that is, IF these thugs are ever brought to justice.
What is becoming of our societies around the world when we can just pass this kind of behaviour off, as just a daily news headline on a billboard for the day, and life just carries on, because this little one's family are not well known and do not have celebrity status to attract more attention to demand action!

The laws of any of these causes has never ever changed since they were written by our forfathers in 1936 however man has changed these laws to fit society's needs. In the mean time it's the innocent people who get crusified and suffer.

What happened to "We the People"? When did we lose the right to speak against wrongful action from our government? It appears that a majority of our Congressional Representatives care more about their paycheck than they do the public they represent. They are also too preoccupied with protecting the interests of the wealthiest US citizens, i.e. paying less taxes than the poor and middle class.

I am unsure about signing this. Yes, changes need to be made, but throwing more money in the pockets of unwed mothers and fathers to buy liquer, drugs, and cars with, just doesn't seem to be the answer. Put the money into family counseling, and weeding out the people who are "breeding for cash" and taking away their kids and adopting them to families desperate to have children for the RIGHT reasons, and having these "Welfare Rangers" sterilized!

I think you should read it again... it's in regards to child welfare services. to stop the mistreatment of children. "promoting safe and stable families", which correct me if I'm wrong, but does that not come under your heading of family counseling? I don't know why I'm responding, usually people who talk like you do have set minds. Take kids away from people breeding for cash and adopt them out? Regardless of whether they are being mistreated? Lady I think that comes under the heading of...

Lady I think that comes under the heading of child abuse.. how would you like to be ripped out of your family, probably not even put with any of your other siblings because who can afford to adopt two, three or four kids? Forget that.
Don't sign it if like Katherine Cherry says, you feel it's propaganda, but don't color all welfare recipients with the same brush or threaten innocent children with removing them from what could be a very loving home.

Taking a child from their parent bcuz they need assistance to help raise them, due to circumstances out of their control??? Dont judge!!! Not your job!!! Unless u kno circumstances of why they are on welfare, then shut your mouth!!!

Someone said, this is propaganda. If so why are heir children hungry and being abused everyday in our countries. Not enough is being done.the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. We send money overseas, but we have children in our back yards that need it. If we don't take care of our children we have no future. When your old and need someone to take care of you, I hope those children remember your comments.

Wish it were that simple. There is often at least one partner unwilling to make the necessary changes to keep the family together. And this may even be due to a psychological disorder that is only revealed after pregnancy. But I totally agree that education is needed to teach people to be responsible adults. That is so often lacking at schools. Responsibilty is also not encouraged by politicians behaving irresponsibly.
