The Jersey Care Home in St. Martins need I say more.
They have uncovered more bricked up punishment rooms
shackles and who knows what else.

Haut De La Garenne.

Its dark, Its deep, Its full of pain
A place where terror lies
Where innocence was taken
Away from prying eyes
Where shame is just another word
And dignity was lost
Where scars will last forever
Till now we count the cost
Only they will know the pain endured
Or the pleas that went unheard
Or the tears they shed in darkness
In corners where they curled
We cannot change what happened
Or wipe away their past
But we should seek these evil bastards
And nail them to the mast.

Powerful piece. Makes one wish there were something beyond the death penalty.

Topical and most excellent. It almost seems disrespectful to talk about this.
The horror numbs me.
I am a nurse, and a middle aged one. In my younger years, I spoke to "carers" involved in child "care," and heard gruesome tales. I never believed them at the time. I do now.
The human race will never cease to amaze and sicken me.

i just researched on the Internet to find out about this house of torture. It made me sick to my stomach and I too was filled with rage and the desire to physically inflict injury or even death upon those who did these horrible acts upon the poor children.
Children should be cherished and loved not abused and murdered. The world is upside down where wrong is right and right is wrong. God help us all!

Its a tragedy, its sickening - vulnerable children made to suffer horror and pain. I would personally like to take these monsters and nail them to the mast as you say Graham. I know Jersey well as I have a house there - and its horrific just seeing this unfold.
