Madeleine McCann: Is This Relevant?

by | 13th, July 2007

THERE has been no little talk on the Anorak Forums and comment pages about Madeleine McCann – about 4,000 posts.

And not all of it has been supportive of the parents. Some voices accuse Madeleine’s parents of not taking proper care when they left their children alone in the holiday apartment while they went out with friends.

My view is that it mattered but not much. If Madeleine was stolen – as it appears – the criminal only needed a moment to act. And if not her then some other child.

(Jacksonville, FL) — The mother of four young children pleaded guilty yesterday to child neglect charges. Police say she left her kids ages eight-months to five-years-old alone for at least three hours in her westside apartment last month. A judge sentenced 28-year-old Wynette Smith to the 22 days she’s served in jail since her arrest plus two years of probation. Police responded on June 21st to a tip from the management of Smith’s Collins Road apartment complex. The children remain in state custody. Smith’s boyfriend, 33-year-old Shakir Muhammad, remains in jail on 100-thousand-dollars bond facing the same charges.
