Thank God the police have managed to get a confession from these criminals for their heinous crimes. There can be no excuses now. Instead of focusing on matters of freedom of speech, we need to focus on making sure we rid our society of this kind of perverted behaviour. The punishment should be swift and memorable so no pervert will ever dare to do something like this again.
