Letter: Mary Bell

The Independent Online
SO THE tabloids have found Mary Bell and forced her and her child to flee. Will any of the reporters or editors of these papers be prosecuted for child abuse? Naturally not. Will any proceeds of this story go to charity? What a foolish idea. What has happened with all the promises to protect privacy? Ignored when they are in the way of a good story. And these are the same people who are always pretending to support moral values, the responsible adults who attack a woman for a crime she committed as a child 30 years ago.
