Whether you want to believe me or not, is up to you, but I am speaking the truth when I say I have worked for my local Constabulary in their Crime Department. Well to be perfectly honest, I don’t give a flying fig if you believe me or not. I know I got up every morning and drove to the Police Station and did a day’s work in their crime department.
A department, that not only dealt with petty shoplifters and petty theft but a department that also had to deal with cases of rape and murder, along with child abuse cases.
I have worked alongside officers in cases of missing children. I have witnessed how hard they work and how they won’t stop until they find that child. How they never give up hope of finding that child.
Yes they know it could turn into a potential murder case and they know that there may never be a happy ending but that still doesn’t make them give up hope.
But to see the salivation about the prospect of the review into the disappearance Madeleine McCann turn into a potential murder inquiry makes me feel sick and cringe.
Straight away people are putting two and two together and bypassing 4 and 5 and jumping straight to six. If the Madeleine McCann case does have an unhappy ending and it turns in to a murder inquiry it does not mean the parents are involved.
And who the hell do you think you all are, armchair Colombo’s, who think they have the given right to be part of the investigation and to know what is going on. You have no rights, the Police will tell people what they want them to know, when they want them to know and until that time, perhaps your time could be spent better by not wasting Police time. Every stupid FOI they have to answer, every call like the one below, is just a waste of Police time and money.
SM: In a normal case in Britain it’s not unusual for the police to give an ongoing commentary as to how it’s progressing so what…
Police: …I’ve only worked here 11 years but I would say it’s not common. We give information whilst it’s appropriate to produce but whilst there’s an investigation going on and where it’s potentially murder, we say very little, we say very little. You read a lot in the press but that doesn’t come from us. We deal with about 250 murders a year and all of them are dealt with in exactly the same way in terms of how we deal with the media.
The behaviour of SM and the salivating of people at the possibility of Madeleine McCann’s disappearance turning into a murder inquiry is ghoulish. How would you feel if this was your child, how would you feel, if idiots on the internet were wasting Police time answering stupid questions to people who should know bloody better?
None of you know how it feels when a case turns from a missing child to a murder inquiry. None of you know how much it affects officers, and no officer will write a child or any person off as dead until they have solid proof, ie a body. They might say they fear the worst, but in their hearts they hope their fears are never founded.
