Has Scotland Yard dodged a bullet in the Maddie case?
« on: October 08, 2018, 10:34:55 AM »
Decision time has come and gone yet again in the Maddie case.  This time though, for what ever reason depending on what red top rubbish one chooses to believe, either SY has not asked for additional funds or the Home Office has refused to commit to any further spending. Whichever way one chooses to look at it however, this marks a significant change in tactics by Scotland Yard which most sceptics will see as an indication that the case has at last been shelved.

By not coming out and saying so, has SY effectively dodged the bullet of public humiliation?

After nearly £12 million pounds it would be impossible for SY to, as you say, ‘dodge the bullet’ without at least one official press release.

Moral Guilt
Detractors of the work of our British Police in bringing criminals to justice generally ignore the important distinction between moral proof and legal evidence of guilt. In not a few cases that are popularly classed with 'unsolved mysteries of crime,' the offender is known, but evidence is wanting. If, for example, in- a recent murder case of special notoriety and interest,* certain human remains had not been found in a cellar, a great crime would have been catalogued among `Police failures'; and yet, even without the evidence which sent the murderer to the gallows, the moral proof of his guilt would have been full and clear.

There was wide-spread criticism of the PJ investigation.... I haven't seen Grange described as botched etc..
There would be no need for SY to be there if the PJ had been competent

Thinking about it there's been no sign of active investigation by Operation Grange since the workforce was reduced in October 2015, despite claims that they were still following 'lines of enquiry'.

There was indeed widespread criticism of the PJ investigation. It was begun immediately by the parents and their friends and relatives and taken up and continued by the UK media.

Were you able to read Portuguese, you would have seen Grange being described as botched. The digging and the burglars provoked criticism in Portugal, for example.

It is on record, that the PJ misunderstood the important evidence which sent the down the wrong track

Maybe they would have been if the mccs had been fully cooperative....

post in my opinion....
Always listen to both sides of the story before you judge.

The first storyteller you will always find has modified the story, for there benefit BE WISE.
