System lets mom down: iLIVE
It was obvious before this happened that [Tina Mbili's alleged assailant] was a violent psychopath and a potential killer ("Brutalised mother speaks of her ordeal", yesterday).
It is diabolical that a police psychologist did not make this assessment and prompt intervention to protect Tina Mbili. This would include, as it does in the US and UK, continual surveillance.
Now Mbili and her family are under threat because he will probably get out after a ridiculously lenient sentence, should he ever be arrested and convicted.
