Can you just clarify what you mean, are you intimating that this girl somehow deserved here fate because you choose to hold that idiotic and insulting belief?

i agree the whole Padraig Nally case illustrates this.
some groups of people appear to be perceived as less than human, and by implication fair game.

lessons from WW2 and the Holocaust should not be so easily forgotten.

wasn't only Jews who suffered in that Holocaust, Gypsies, Poles, even handicapped people were killed. Just sickening looking at it's images.


Confab said:
Bad reason. The Jews used to be the most hated group in Europe. Look how that turned out.

That poor little girl was someone s child!!! I don't care what the Roma people have done or not done she didn't choose her life, she was begging, trying to survive like the rest of us and easy pickings for the man that killed her. Your attitude would not have been out of place in Nazi Germany.

Her alleged killers are well known, and one of them has already being charged with the unfortunate girls murder and one other is going state witness.So hopefully they will be long gone................to prison.


Why only murder? The crimes committed include kidnapping and rape, too.
Is the one going state's witness hoping for a reduced sentence or something?

No matter what punishment is handed down it will be too lenient. They should spend the rest of their lives locked up in prison here or Romania.

It happened to a human being. Colour doesn't matter. Murder is murder.

Yes, but the question asked was

Jack_Russell said:
He added: "This raises the question; would a teenager’s abduction, abuse and murder have been more newsworthy, more talked about and simply more emotive if she were an Irish national? As a society are we ambivalent towards the murder because the victim was a member of the Roma community."

Of course it would be more newsworthy, it would be stupid to think otherwise and a bit worrying that a high ranking person would ask this, I hope they are just feigning igrorance to try and get a point across. Either way they look ignorant.

What Makes a Story Newsworthy?
3. Proximity
Stories which happen near to us have more significance. The closer the story to home, the more newsworthy it is. For someone living in France, a major plane crash in the USA has a similar news value to a small plane crash near Paris.

Note that proximity doesn't have to mean geographical distance. Stories from countries with which we have a particular bond or similarity have the same effect. For example, Australians would be expected to relate more to a story from a distant Western nation than a story from a much closer Asian country.
