We certainly are reading the accompanying posts, are you sure you have? The problem is it was stated that the camera was left on to catch the child riding when he should be sleeping at night. Now this sounds good at first but it's really the undoing of the video, here's why:
Light is left on
The word "wire" can be heard very clearly
The son is still awake and playing elsewhere (why is the camera on?)
Rocking horse has changed rooms and position from the first scene
Editing has been done
If the OP wishes to remain credible I suggest uploading the unedited video to ATS - from the time the camera is left on (someone touching it then leaving room, etc) until their return or the tape runs out. Failure to do so will leave us no option but to assume the authors are hiding something and faked the whole incident.
Sorry if that seems harsh but sometimes the truth is.

The only problems I have with this are:
1. I have never left a camera running and open before. I find it hard to believe anyone would. I suppose it is possible... but..
2. You not only leave it on, you leave it centered PERFECTLY on the object for the "ghost" scene. How very convenient.
Of course, you have to think this might happen on a very rare occasion. Someone might leave a camera on AND centered on a object that happens to be the object of paranormal activity.
This of course, could easily be faked.
And for what it's worth, I do believe in ghosts, or a phenomena that appears to be ghosts by those who see it. They may not be the dead spirits of people, but I thing they are something. But videos like these don't make me go OoO! and ahh.. it seems far too simple.
I've SEEN this sort of thing first hand, too. It's what made me firmly believe in this sort of thing. We lived in a "haunted" house. Bought dirt cheap, my parents thought they were getting a bargain. We moved out less than a year later, because of all the activity. But we didn't catch anything on tape as conveniently as this.

It definitely sounds like the interference caused by a cellphone, but perhaps some other electronic device could have caused it. I don't recall ever hearing any other devices doing that though, at least back in the early nineties. I'd have to look into that a little more.

howver the entire ` back story ` - ie "we put the camera in place to catch the kid sneaking about " makes ZERO sense what so ever the implication is that the sqeaky horse can be heard throughout the house

Yep, Djinni\Ghost\Spirit\Poltergeist\incubus\sucubus all the same thing.
Darn you for making me post a one liner. Actually, allow me to explain so this won't be a one liner. Those six things you described? Not even CLOSE to the "same thing." For eff's sake man, even if they ARE fake, do some research before you dribble nonsense onto an ATS thread. Your post was disgusting.
How can you find such a thing 'disgusting' - do you even know what that word means?
I've done my research.
They are the same thing.
But that is off-topic and for a different thread.
What is not needed is your 'disgusting' outburst.
Now you know what 'disgusting' means.
P.S. Your post and ATS points seem to indicate that you flamebait and troll. It seems more people have found YOUR posts disgusting and nonsensical to say the least.

Thanks for coming forward with this.
Just for argument sake how would somebody fake this? How could you do it?
Lets see if somebody can come up with a debunking of this and explain exactly how you would do it.
