Ha! I told you so I told you so!

I said it before, and I'll say it again: the parents did it.

I wonder what all those saps who put Madeline McCann posters in the car windows are thinking now...

Shades of JonBenet Ramsay.
I hope that it isn't true.

I was so angry at those twats for leaving their little girl alone so that they could go out for a nice, f*cking, dinner!

That, was bad enough.
THIS, would be unforgivable.

I agree - I suspected theparents or a close member (friend or family) had something to do with Madeline's disappearance. Remember with the father said - along the line of "If it was an accident etc etc" - could he be referring to himself or his wife? These people don't look as upset as normal parents who lost their child - what was all that celiberty lifestyle was all about. Something stinks - big time.

"Something stinks - big time."

Sorry, that was me...fajitas for lunch.

I wonder what will happen to the cover version of that Bryan Adams song they were going to record? I hope it doesn't get cancelled.

The Portuguese "suspect" status doesn't mean they'll be charged or even mean the same as "suspect" does in Britain or the USA; it just gives them some additional rights AND (more importantly for the Portuguese authorities) it shuts them up - they can't discuss the case with the media.

Personally, I think the police either want a nice neat case or are embarrassed/frustrated at the lack of resolution so they want to keep the pesky McCann's quiet.

DNA in a car hired by the McCanns 25 days after Madeleine's disappearance? Who was hiring the car in the intervening time?

The "home alone" aspect is picked up on mostly by USAnians who get very worked up about this. Over here it's really not so much of a big deal (popping back and forth every 30 mins or so to check on the kids) so please can you respect our cultural differences on this matter?

I'm with ya, cb.
and just think...they still have a couple more kids to go. maybe by #3 they'll learn to cover their tracks better.

guilty as SIN. it makes me sick.

First Nations said...

yeek; no attack on your intended, llewtrah!

it's not so much the left alone thing...lots of parents do that here, too. i did it with the Amazon. its the 'continuing on with their vacation tra la la' aspect of it that shocked people over here. i would be absolutely incapable of rational thought if something like that happened to my kid. you couldn't pay me enough money to leave the place until the culprit was captured.

Frobisher said...

Hold the lynch mob people - no one has been charged yet.

First Nations said...

yeah, shit. voice of reason. fine. spoil my fun.

i had a great tree all picked out, too.

i need to bear in mind that i don't have the full story.
i guess nobody does, huh.
never mind.
*pulls bag over head, scuttles away*

It's very sad whoever did it :-(

For little Madeleine's sake, I hope it *was* an accidental oversedation from her doctor parents because at least that way she won't have suffered.

If she was taken by someone else, one can only begin to imagine how she may have been treated....

I don't think they were continuing their holiday - I wouldn't have been able to leave either - it would feel like abandonment. I hope it wasn't them.

Chaucer's Bitch said...

Homo: ew! ewewewewewewew! I hope it wasn't another JonBenet thing. That little girl suffered. a LOT.

anon: indeed.

Rimshoooooooot! Open a window!

Annie: Ha!

lewtrah: the sad fact is that most child abductions are perpetrated by a parent or family member. and i don't care who you are or where you live, it is NOT ok to leave toddlers unattended. ever.

FN: how old was the SSA when you left her alone?

frobi: no, and they probably never will be, just as in the JB case.

FN: you're far more civilized than I.

007.5: indeed. i have all the sympathy in the world for the kid.

ziggi: yeah, but it probably was.

First Nations said...

2. she was across the wall while i was visiting my shiksa and lighting up. not my proudest moment.
im not civilized-how DARE you madam! i'm just reminded that this IS the popular news media we're dealing with, is all.

GreatSheElephant said...

I am still undecided on whether they did it.

I am however absolutely revolted by Gerry McCann's desire to use the fund donated to help find the poor child to pay for his and his wife's legal defence. If I'd made a donation, which I didn't, I'd be demanding a refund.

Chaucer's Bitch said...

FN: sorry dear, of course you're not civilized! oh, and i'm not basing my assumptions on the popular news media; i'm basing them on the statistical fact that 75% of all child abductions are conducted by a parent or close relative. they should have been the prime suspects from the beginning.

GSE: demand one anyway! no harm in asking.
