Thread: Madeleine McCann

  1. #1

    Default Madeleine McCann

    Dreadful situation. My thoughts and prayers (if the prayers of an atheist are worth anything) are with her parents (although I have been finding myself increasingly angry with them for leaving her and her two younger siblings alone in a hotel room.

    At times like this I find my humanitarian and civil libertarian instincts going out the window: convicted child abductors and predatory paedophiles should be imprisoned for the rest of their natural lives.

    Apparently something is developing on this now, CCTV footage and 3 suspects. The parents are being brought to Portimao.

    Hopefully they get a result soon.

    The parents are a pair of irresponsible fools and their kid glove treatment in the media is purely based on their socio/professional status. How would the brit tabloid press have covered it had a brickie and his wife left their young children unsupervised to go out to a restaurant/pub? Now they expect a flood of resources, in an impoverished country, to be directed at the resolution of their neglect.

    This would be a good time a reflect on what the likes of Brian Curtin, Chef Allen et al who support - namely, downloading of child pornography involving children who are abducted, raped and killed.

    Disgusting and reduces humanity to it lowest levels.

    I could learn to love those who hate me, but I would gladly support the death penalty for anyone who supports child abuser, child abductors for the use in these sick videos and would consider it for those who support it by paying to view these videos.

    Certainly not delay investigations and give pensions for life.

    Anyone know why the warrant wasn't served on time on Curtin?

    No. To be directed at the safe recovery of a tiny helpless child. You Gollute.

    Is there a link to info on these scum,? All paedo scum need to be exposed, villified and thwarted at every opportunity. If they are vocal in attempting to defend this depravity then they need to be opposed by all legal means, from the grassroots up.

    Granted, the issue at stake is the return of the child. However, the brit media spends it time criticising the portugese response as opposed to condemning the behaviour that caused the issue. The same behaviour would be enough to have children taken into protective custody in many nations. If the parents had payed more attention to their children's safety prior to ditching them for the pub then there wouldn't be an issue would there?

    Brad Curtis Alan O Sullivan and Kevin Mc Mullen if these had been ound guilty on thumped up charges this would haveen a miscarriage of justice.

    I hope she is found alive and well.

    I am a mother and have left my children alone. Not for long and I would have been in the same building - house - shop. Let us not critisise them for now. They are suffering enough.

    I have had my 3 yr old go missing whilst out shopping in USA> You cannot imagine the panic that caused me. She wasnt found for an hour and the shop was closed and a man hunt ensued. This because I saw a dress for her and as I picked it up and turned around she was gone!!!!!

    The little divil was hiding in the clothes rail and thought all the commotion ws very funny. However for an hour I was in a mad panic. I could not even contemplate having that feeling for a week or a lifetime.

    I do believe that Maddy would have been taken anyway wether the parents left her or not. The abductor would have taken her when the parents were sleeping.

    I think she was stolen to order otherwise the 3 of them would have been taken really.

    fingers crossed for her safe return

    Allen was convicted in a court of law and he admitted downloading child pornography-all he got was a fine.

    The sentences handed down for these convictions are a pure and utter joke.

    Missing children imposes a life sentence on their parents with no remand until the body is found - which in many cases never happen.

    I agree there are issues with the miscarrage of justice, but there are clear cut cases where the defendant admits the charge

    Kids have gone missing since the year dot. Difference nowadays is that with 24 hour global news channels always looking to break the next big story and cover it from every angle; each missing child story becomes a huge and terrible tragedy. This in turns causes parents everywhere to imagine the worst and overestimate the statistical chance of the same happening to their child.

    This leads to today's children being cocooned from the outside world and all its dangers and risks which unfortunately means their childhood is not as happy and carefree as it should be. Therefore they grow up less able to cope with social interaction and the world around them when they approach adulthood.
