Callum continued: “He made inappropriate comments about their breasts, about things he wanted to do with them sexually.“He would then collapse into a pile and pretend he was upset. Then he’d sit up and say something inappropriate. He was a very strange character.
“At the mortuary, we know that he called his children ‘little s**ts’, which in any context that children have died, I don’t know how that can be deemed as appropriate.”Mick and his wife Mairead burnt down their three-bed council house in Derby, with pal Paul Mosley in a bid to get a bigger home.
But the plan backfired and killed their kids aged five to 13.Philpott’s former friend Mick Russell accompanied him during the visit to the mortuary and was also appalled by what he had witnessed.'NOTHING LESS THAN ABHORRENT'"He was smiling and cracking jokes and that. And then we went in and had the children in the room,” said Mick.
“They [were] all lined up. Five little kids lying there with burns on their arms and hands. I just broke down crying.”Philpott’s behaviour left police convinced that the father was responsible for the 2012 fire.Five of his kids died at the scene and a sixth later died in hospital from their injuries.
David Spencer at the Centre for Crime Prevention said: “The case shocked the country and it will be nothing less than abhorrent that the children’s mother is being released after 8½ years. This is not justice.”The Prison Service said: “Offenders released on licence face strict conditions and can be returned to prison if they breach them.”

Chicago police officer sacked after shooting dead unarmed black teenagerA police officer in the US has been fired after shooting a black couple inside a car - killing a 19-year-old man and injuring his girlfriend I guess Police are guilty until proven innocent. The article states no weapons were found in the vehicle but, fails to mention the vehicle itself is a weapon if the driver attempted to hit the Officer. I choose to wait for more details and the video before drawing any conclusions should he no be jailed too 🤷🏼♂️ Wait, what? He shot a *dead* person? WTH?
