What are you thoughts on the murder of the child sex offender, Andrew Cunningham, 52

Found 13th Dec 2008
Andrew Cunningham, 52, who was jailed in 2000 for unlawful sex with a 15-year-old girl, was found in the caravan where he lived on an industrial estate in Wandsworth, southwest London.

He had been stabbed repeatedly, reportedly suffering wounds to his genitals in a mob attack, and police believe he may have been murdered because he was a convicted paedophile.

I think the murderers are just as bad, how do you feel

This is gonna be a controversial thread Skusey....



I thought we needed an adult thread instead of posts about paper cuts and boiling potatoes.

he probs was murdered for what he did, however i would say if he was the killers are just as bad violence doesnt solve anything

Well when i heard it, i thought he didnt deserve death....then i looked at it from a different angle, and thought if it was my own child, then my view quickly changed to, rot in hell scumbag!

anyone who unlawfully takes life is scum
i also think a convicted paedophile is scum
anyone who hurts children phisicaly or mentaly are scum

Here we go......



In before the lock

I cant condone the murderers, no matter how sick the man was, I could not cut his genitals off.
This is a sick world

sorry but think anyone who has thoughts of doing stuff like that deserve this kinda treatment. i must say, anyone who even thought about treating my kids this way would get this kinda treatment from me, sorry. and i f ANYONE even done anything to my kids i would make it my life to track them down and cut their genitals off before killing them with my bare hands. i'm sorry if anyone disagree's but this is how i feel about my kids

I'm of the opinion you do the crime you do your time

He done his time and was living out of the way on an industrial estate so I can't see how he deserved it.

It was harsh and uncalled for really, unless of course he was kicking about outside of schools in which case I can see why the vigilantes did what they did but it's still wrong what they did.

If he was up to anything dodgy it should have been left to the police he would have gone to prison and got what he deserved there. Trust me i've seen what happens to them in prison every day. I was only in a military prison too so the ones in there got off lightly.

As for the people who done it they're murderers now and should go to prison

whats your problem?
Not used to adult chat?

if it was my kid i would have killed him , dont care if its just as bad, you harm my kids an ANYWAY i harm you, pedos get less jail time than drug dealers and then get to hide who they are and what they did, its a joke, the law NEEDS to chance, or this will happen over and over again

I actually don't think anybody can give a honest view on this, unless its happened to you.

If they've paid for their crime they should be left alone - if they are still a danger to others then they should be kept locked up. But vigilante actions like this (if it is one) are inexcuseable...and what if they got the wrong person? Remember the paediatrician that was targetted?

agree, if you consider it as your child, you would do the same.
Its difficult to state an opinion

These people are let out of prison far too soon, if at all, no wonder the lynch mobs go into action. I have no sympathy for either the paedophile or the lynch mob.

well said pred :thumbsup:

I think the people who say he's done his time are being a slight bit hypocritical.....would you have peace with somebody who "harmed" your child?

I'm going to be controversial and honest.

Justice served.

Locking them up doesn't solve the problem, Neither does the offenders register.

I'd sleep better at night if all the perverts were hung and I knew my Children are safe.

exactly jail term for being a pedo 24/36 months jail on release new identity,

jail term for being a drug deal 60/74months in prison on release get constantly tracked by police and always frist to get lited if anything happens.

not that i condon drugs in anway just think its ridiculous, a pedo ruins a kids life, drugs may do but they dont leave the mental scars that abuse cause

Anti-child abuse campaigners have condemned the "vile" murder of a man … Anti-child abuse campaigners have condemned the "vile" murder of a man thought to be a child sex offender who was found naked and covered in blood in a caravan.Sara Payne, whose daughter Sarah was murdered by a convicted paedophile in 2000, said the attackers were "no better" than the man they killed and this would set back her campaign for the names and addresses of sex offenders to be made available to the public.

Yeah, really good thinking. Kill them. I'm sure your kids would be just as happy growing up with a mum/dad who is serving years inside.

still doesnt sound right to me as an outsider, not 100% convinced this is justice.

i would rather them deal with the fact that i was in prison for getting someone back for what they had done for them, rather than livin with the fact that the person who abused them will be out in less than 3 yrs!!!

sorry but this is how i feel..... i would die for my kids and if anyone dared try to harm them i would make sure that they would die

Anyway, in all honesty I've heard ducks fart before. How many times have we all heard people say exactly the same thing? But how often do we actually hear of parents committing these acts of retribution? Hardly ever, in fact off the top of my head I can't think of any. I would imagine that in the unfortunate event of something happening to their kids most people see sense and let the police and courts deal with them.

I must add to my earlier post, The victims of these sicko's get a life sentence and have to live with it.

When sicko's, They get a couple of years in prison, Is that justice?

Not trying to be funny but not only would they have to deal with the original attack but also with you being a murderer/ess. Being in prison you would be in no position to give your child any support and they would probably end up in foster care, yet more stress.

Like you say unless it happens to you, you'll never know how you will react. If its a choice of concentrating on hatred, revenge and violence (and living with that for the rest of your life) or concentrating on help your child recover, forget and move on in their lives - I hope I choose the latter. For a child to see a parent destroyed by what had happened to them would probably make it even more difficult for them to recover.

I would have thought that most child sex abuse occurs within families (or are committed by family friends). What should happen about them.....

Like i said previous, people cant put a honest reaction, because its unknown what you would do.
Ive known of parents of murdered children, forgive their murderers....NOBODY can post an honest reaction....just my 2p's worth.

well, i am not amongst those 'most people' and even if i was my family and hubby wouldn't be one to rest untill justice had been caused

I think that's the point of the discussion. I believe in Capital Punishment for such (proven) cases, but our liberal society, with its do-gooders, hardly ever take into account the misery perverts cause. Nevertheless, since we don't have the death penalty, I think that they should be locked away for a long long time. The child, and the parents, have been dealt a life sentence too!

nah i'm sure your kids minds would be more put to rest to know that the person who abused them is dead and could never do that to them again even if it doesn mean one of their parents are in jail for doing this
