tet if I was one of these nasty creatures do you not think this would be one of the locations I would consider?

And it is a very middle class locatiion and lets not forget the 100K reward they offered, sorry I will drop the subject but it honestly makes me feel sick

Being a family orientated resort does not make it middle class? It is more expensive than the places that attract spewing t1t showing, kecks dropping riff raff like aya napa or Faliraki - so what?

The reward has been offered obviously because some people are money motivated and might look a little harder if there's a reward to be had, possibly even the offender's family or friends - so it's an incentive, it doesn't mean they have the money sitting in the bank, i'm sure they wouldn't mind being in debt to 100k for the rest of their lives if it meant getting their daughter back.

You seem to have a class hang up - nothing more - nothing less. The single mothers you keep going on about - where they the ones who went on holiday from the UK leaving their children home alone - hardly the same is it?

Do you have a child Knockers? When you say the child is the only one in pain?

I hardly can think of what the child has to endure right now. It breaks my heart. I have a 3 year old. When something like this would happen to my girl you can lock me up and trow away the key, because it would make me crazy. Unfortunatly the human mind doesn't work that way. The parents are in pain. And I think they're their own worse critics now. They don't need all the negativity here.

Knockers

Here's a layout of the Resort - taken from a BBC report

newsimg.bbc.co.uk/me...

It would be far easier for someone connected to the resort to spy on families and tagret a child, than someone to abduct a child who is just passing through, due to one main entrance to the resort and its general layout.

The question therefore is, are staff who work for this Resort vetted the same as potential employee's are vetted in this country, when dealing/working with children?

knockers ,at the risk of upsetting you your opinions are not worth listening to you do not know the McCanns or myself and yet you sit in judgement and make assumptions about people .

Your judgement in all of your posts on this subject are flawed.
.
Do you sleep in the same room as your children ,watch them all the time when they are playing in the next room ,follow them back and forwards to school never let them play out in a garden or park,never turn your back for an instance because if some one realy wants to abduct a child they can do it in an instance 1 ten 15 minutes are all they will need to be away. And what do you do when you are asleep?
The pain and anguish of these normal good parents is plain to see.And i as with the majority of people do not blame madeleines parents .And your judgement of them as being middle class know it alls quite frankly shows quite clearly your predujices.
Tet sorry I think the child is the one in pain and this would have been less likely to happen had they been proper parent.

Not middle class know it alls

And as for that the guy that states he would leave his children all alone I state in my opinion he is unfit, If one person reads this thread and learns it is wrong to abandon their children then a much greater good has been done then justifying it.

So if it happened to a single mother and a local businessman offered up a reward she would say no - piffle. I'd rather be a tad late on the subject with positive thoughts than that of yours. Perhaps you're just unloved and this is your way of getting a bit of attention.

I'm glad that your 4 children have never come to any harm - ever looked around quick though and shouted where's so and so and breathe a sign of relief as you see her/him (gone out of your gaze for a moment on a park or a ride) It must be truly great to be ever so perfect.

Can someone explain why it is that the parents who are honest enough to say they have never/will never leave their children alone while they go out are ridiculed?

you obviouslly are not capable of reading words and making sense of them as you never answered any of the points in my message to you ?

knockers. why does that name suit you so well? You obviouslly ignore everything that you do not like to hear .

This ignorance is plain for all to see

As a successful parent who has managed to raise two healthy children into adult life i do not have to answer to you the results are there to be seen .
Leaving a child asleep in a room 50 yards from where you are is not the sign of a failed parent or abuse why you choose to say it is is beyond most peoples thinking.

Since you've used some of my post, i'll reply. Whilst i've never left mine alone in the same sense of the situation that those parents did - ie. went out for something to eat without them, I have been in the club-bar when one or two of them have said they are tired and/or bored and want to go up (to the apartment) I or my wife have gone with them, albeit they were in their early teens, made sure they were ok and then came back down - I don't see that as being unloving, uncaring or irresponsible as we could've gone up, fell asleep and if anything's going to happen, it'll happen anyway. No-one is ridiculing you for your views - they too are correct but bring class into it, the money offered, the type of resort etc means nothing, absolutely nothing. How about the baby taken from her own room, the baby in the bath, a girl from her garden etc.

By the way. How manyparents lie by the pool or on the beach and leave their kids to roam freely within the complex or local vicinity. The only person truly at fault here is the abductor - they seem to be getting away scot free as everyone concentrates on the parents, you see apartment doors open all day long in the daytime as kids wander in and out and so could anyone.

Quoted from this message



Knockers!

What is your problem with this reward money?

What price would you put on your own childs head?

Non of us know where this money came from. It might be surplus cash burning a hole in their bank account, or they've remortgaged the house, or family and friends have clubbed together to help raise the money, or fund raising or donations locally to their home? No one knows where this money originates and its certainly not our place to question this desperate measure to get their child back.

As for offering it as a reward - its a sad fact that there are people in this world who will do anything for money. Heaven forbid Maddy has been taken to be sold on in Morocco, but sadly that might be the case. If someone knows something about this, but is not getting much monitory gain out of it themselves, this money might be enough to tempt them into divulging information to get their hands on 100k. If this means that Maddy can be reunited with her family then it is a small price to pay.

Quoted from this message

You've misunderstood me.

This Resort is, based on the facts to hand, as safe as it can realistically get with regards to the security of ones child. I think these poor people just had too much faith in that.

Nieve? On hindsight, yes!

Neglectful? No!

The McCann's are now paying an extremely high price for being too trusting. And I'm not referring to the 100k either.
