    Even infants are not spared and yet we still boast of 2600 years of culture and civilization! Its time the monks went back to their temples.

    This woman is evil and should be severely punished even if the Court determines she is psychologically unhinged.

    can't this be an accident ? due to the word "dash" we all think it is intentional. word could have come due to the anger of child parents. a conspiracy theory.
