I think it’s interesting you’ve introduced the fact she’s white and middle class into the discussion in later posts, and it was very evident from your postings that ultimately you care more about Maddie because she is exactly that - I was keen to keep race out of the comparison but it’s interesting you introduced it more overtly as the thread want on.


People care most about what is closest to them and what they have in common.

However, I and I imagine Chris would still definitely care if Maddie wasn't white. I certainly care. Whether this is egalitarian enough for you is more for you to care about.

No, I think we should give up the search as millions of pounds of resources have already been poured into the case with no success - unfortunately their comes a time to draw a line under it until further evidence comes to light.

I think trying to suggest that I don’t have empathy with the parents, or indeed that I morally don’t align with them is quite a reprehensible way to approach a debate, as is trying to claim some sort of moral superiority when it comes to missing children.

Your point on 9/10 parents being part of a root cause has clearly been misunderstood by numerous posters, and despite me politely asking you to expand on the point, you retorted with usual rudeness - why are you so hesitant to explain what you meant?

Ultimately, the responses on the thread indicate where most people’s feelings are on this issue.

I didn't introduce her background, you or the other one did. You've quoted a response.

I also responded and expanded my post regarding your inability to compute a very simple sentence, here it is again (it can be found on page 20)
"Correct. Throwing money at a problem that needs cohesion at a community level is just wasted money.
The London knife crime rate needs to be accepted as a cultural issue first, cooperation between police and community second, re-education third, stop and search in parellel along with extra resources into policing during the education package.

There is absolutely no majority support for this across community, politicians or media so I'd rather invest the money in finding out what happened to McCann.

Cracking a nonce ring/ corruption/ bringing to justice child murdering frauds all represent greater value for the financial investment."

Not a fan of reading posts are you? As for rudeness, again you want to try reading all the posts. I've not insulted anyone.

Or her parents could have shaken her to death and lobbed her down a well. It would be nice to know, wouldn't it?

Perhaps we could invest time and resources into investigating the matter?

Oh no, wait: let's talk about knifings in London instead and then go ballistic and start insulting everyone when we're unable to take on and digest very simple words.

What an absolute intellect void this thread is.

Thanks Stirling, appreciate it mate.

Just another poster unable to debate their point because it's bollocks so they try to imply the other person is racist.

Doesn't have the nuts to come out and say it directly though, says all you need to know about him.

Someone's got to bring the standard up to somewhere just below brain-dead otherwise this site wouldn't get it's special status grant!

To be clear, I said ‘care more’ - I never suggested you or Chris wouldn’t care if it was a non-white kid.

You really struggle to just hold a civil exchange don’t you? This is a forum; people are going to challenge your views from time to time - don’t take it so personally.

The post you’ve quoted above doesn’t really support your 90% of parents claim - I agree there’s cultural issues, but I think your numbers are massively over-egging it, and as I said previously, there are a huge number of good people who have their lives ruined by knife crime through no fault of their own; they are no less deserving of investment, and the fact there is more of them logically means I believe they are deserving of more.

Framing it as ‘cracking a nonce ring’ is not the reality - they’ve poured millions into this investigation and got no where; what makes you think that will change, and at which point would you consider it acceptable to stop?

Something about Kathy Newman quoting, right?

Or faux pas outrage?

Rattled.

I doubt there has been any missing child case here that's had more time and money thrown at it than this one.

Police resources would be better spent on other missing children, especially considering that breakthroughs and positive outcomes are far more likely to come after days and weeks rather than decades.
