Dead babies find shocks GermanySo in a country where the authorities require that you hold a “certificate of expertise” should you have a dog bigger than a certain height – and enforce it –, it is possible to become pregnant, to carry a child 9 months, to give birth to it and then to kill it – AND THAT NINE TIMES!
German police are holding a woman suspected of manslaughter after the bodies of nine new-born babies were found buried in a garden.
The 39-year-old woman is believed to be the mother of the children found in Brieskow-Finkenheerd, in Brandenburg state, near the border with Poland.
Police officers with sniffer dogs were searching the site for further remains.
The grim discovery of little bodies found buried in flower pots and buckets has shocked Germany.
It is thought that the babies were born, and died, between 1988 and 2004.
"We are looking at a crime on a scale that, as far as I can remember, has never been seen in the history of the Federal Republic," Brandenburg Interior Minister Joerg Schoenbohm said in a statement.
"We have to ask ourselves how this incredible crime remained hidden over all these years. It's a question directed at relatives, neighbours, doctors and the authorities."
The bodies were discovered after someone clearing a garage at the site found human bones stored in a fish tank, police said.
According to Reuters, the woman has said she was the mother of the babies but has not admitted killing them. A court spokesman said her statement was confused.
The finds come after other recent grim discoveries in Germany, says the Associated Press.
Last week, a dead baby girl was found in a public toilet in Magdeburg and a young boy was discovered on a recycling company's conveyer belt in Guetersloh.
A walker in Lower Saxony found a dead baby in a plastic bag in June.
The authorities in Austria are holding the parents of at least three of four children whose bodies were found in a freezer and concrete-filled buckets at their home.
And where are the candlelight vigils for the souls of those little children who never had a chance to live?
It’s a bit early yet, but like in the case of the little girl in Hamburg (see my blog entry "Everything to make the scum feel better") who was slowly tortured to death by her parents over years without anybody "knowing" what was going on, I am waiting now for all the the apologetic and relativist hacks telling us that "poverty" (whatever that is in a nanny-state) has nothing to do with the babies’ fate and that rich parents murder their children just as much.
