What would have been a normal reaction to being asked that question in front of the TV cameras and in what way did Gerryís reaction differ so noticeably from the correct behaviour to display when asked?
Well I stated that the context must be taken in to account and lent some latitude, if you care to read the pertinent parts of the original post. Tell you what, I'll find the clip and let the forum decide. In my opinion, it was a reaction that was attempting to hide a poke of the amygdala. Could be fight / anger, but it looked more like flight to me. I see it daily in my line of work.

I presume and trust that you and yours are safe.
Yes all OK. 

Yes, it must be difficult in a case such as that, to be on a jury and try to remain with the concept of innocent .

My feeling is that no one goes and shoots him dead just on the basis he is presumed guilty.  There has to be the fair trial first.  OK how to select an impartial jury is yet to be seen.

You keep avoiding the question.
Does the fact that two lengthy police investigations have so far not been able to implicate the McCanns of being complicit in their child's disappearance not cast the slightest doubt on your belief?

No itís you who keeps avoiding the question. Why didnít we know through official channels that the parents were being investigated before September 6th 2007 ? Could it be down to judicial secrecy? Why would we not know if the parents were being investigated this time? Judicial secrecy too ?

To you?
Or to everyone ?
I get it now - it's a wee game. OK, I have to explain in terms you can understand - I've stated it's my opinion. I've stated it from the initial post.

That's it then?
That's the basis for your belief ?
You are on fire tonight. Read the initial post - it made me think, in my opinion he's not being truthful, so what else isn't true. It didn't define an entire belief system, I'm not on a crusade or going to start a cult.

No, not a game?
It was obvious to you that his reaction was odd but perhaps his reaction didn't seem odd to others.

One clip made you doubtful?
Has any clip made you doubt your doubts?

I didn't for one moment think you would start a cult or a crusade.
What a strange thought to have?

Well of course that's the case. That's the case with anything subjective in the history of humanity.

I do not doubt that you found it odd.
But has it defined your belief?

May to September is five months.

How long is it since both investigations declared the McCanns not to be suspects?

Ah.  Youíre something of an expert.  Might have known.

No. It was not Road to Damascus moment. I didn't throw my arms up, cast my robes off and embark on a crusade.
I'm no staunch McCann [ censored word ], I haven't got a Mr Magoo what went on, but it's not stitching together and little episodes like this only add to the intrigue.
Thanks for reading.

I'll post the clip, if permitted, but I'm sure you've all seen it.
