A final word on the troll

Just one set of statistics missing. Mr Troll alleged that most PARENTAL killings are committed by mothers. So I typed parental murder into google and this is what came up:

"Killings of children by a natural parent are committed in roughly equal proportions by mothers (47%) and fathers (53%), but that where the child is killed by someone other than a parent, males strongly predominate" 15 .
Brookman and Maguire (2003) Reducing homicide: a review of the possibilities (PDF) London: Home Office. p.16.

It isn't so hard to find the truth, Mr Truthseeker

And that really is that - just wanted to tie up a loose end.
