Description

(corner pages a little turned over)

Fittingly for July, True Detective brings you an old and rather shocking classic from the seaside resort of Eastbourne. How many of you are reading this on the beach there? Because if you are, in a building just behind you a headmaster was given written permission from a boy’s father to use corporal punishment on the lad. The father could not know it, but the headmaster had sadistic leanings…

On Exmoor, another child fell victim to her father – on in this case, it was quite deliberate. The man could either support his infant daugther – or for the same price, his drink habit. It was no contest, but tough for the authorities to prove without finding a body.

We have an unusual story of rape and murder. Although the case was closed as solved relatively quickly, you will be left with serious doubts as to whether or not the right man was punished, and will wonder why independent contrary evidence from reliable sources was so summarily dismissed. Was it anything to do with the fact that the victims’ father was a police captain?

Prime Time Crime, too, faces some with a moral problem, as critics say television programmes such as Crimewatch UK and their American counterparts encourage people to spy on their neighbours, and act as "snitches" for the police. But if you knew that your neighbours were guilty of some dreadful crime, say child abuse or cruelty to the elderly – would you say nothing about it to anybody?
