Okay, valid questions regarding this receipt and the trip to the store.
Who was watching the children?
Who was the man?
Why didn't she mention it to the police?
If she did why is this becoming an issue now? Is there more information in association with this?
Is there anything else on that receipt besides wine and paper plates? Is it possible that this was a quick shopping trip and the "suspicious" items
are being leaked and/or simply highlighted by the police and/or the media? Just a thought.
On a slightly different note:
How the heck do so many of you people know that this is her boyfriend? Shouldn't you be calling Missouri about now? "Unidentified man" is just
that "unidentified". Good grief.
If she only bought a box of wine and plastic ware with a strange man then yeah... Kind of weird. But jumping to conclusions from that information
alone is over-reactionary, let alone jumping to conclusions when we don't know anything else about that circumstance.
I understand being suspicious of the parents. I do. Statistically in circumstances like this there is plenty to be suspicious of. The fact that
there are only flimsy other leads is suspicious as well.
However, there is a huge difference between being suspicious and jumping to conclusions; and to be honest, after following this thread I am getting
the distinct impression that most of the posters couldn't come to a conclusion at all if they couldn't jump so far. Get a grip.
So many people that desperately need to have these witches to burn. Some of the nastier aspects of human nature stay the same no matter what I guess.
I personally hope that every single one of you is accused, or better yet, convicted (either by law or simply in the arena of public opinion), of
something you did not do. Then maybe you will actually learn some real empathy and compassion, instead of this self-righteous farce all of you are
twisting yourself into knots around saying "Oh that poor little girl" out of one side of your mouth, and wishing condemnation upon what may very
well be an innocent woman out of the other. This is just about one of the sickest displays I have seen in some time.
If there is such a thing as Karma, God help any of you if you are ever in front of a jury of your peers. Just remember that apparently most members
of the human race are just as eager to condemn on little more than a psychological need to point the finger at someone (anyone) besides themselves as
any of you. Remember this. Remember how you feel right now when you look at that jury.
