Batman & Ratboy.

Camila Batmanghelidjh (try saying that quickly), writes in the Indy:
The questions is this: when children do harm, whose crime is it?
Ooh, ooh I know. Ask me! It's the crime of the little Ratboy scrote who commits it Miss.
In court will stand the child who committed the offence, but a more catastrophic injustice remains unredressed. The crime of those who allow childhood in Britain to be so destroyed that vulnerable children are left to simply survive it.
Oh, I'm wrong.

The rest of her article contains one good point surprisingly, criticising the lack of accoutability in the social services. It might contain more than one good point actually it's just that I haven't got a clue what she is wittering on about:
first we have to communicate the importance of human life. It's not a lesson of morality; preciousness of life has to be emotionally experienced and practically realised. In writing off one person, we facilitate violence as a repercussion.
?????? Nope, she's lost me.

Update: There is a way to interpret her words that makes a surprising amount of sense.
