Madeleine McCann remains "missing" and probably won't ever be found, especially if you go by the evidence found that indicates the child's death. Anyway, the latest updates in this case don't involve bogus "sightings" for a change. Instead it looks like Kate and Gerry McCann are the target of internet trolls who have reportedly gone as far as to make death threats. On March 17, 2013 International Business Times shared the report, and it was also covered on March 18, 2013 on Parent Dish with many of the same details. However, in this breaking report I'm sharing some of the behavior made by trolls on the side of those who support the McCann camp -- and it's rather frightening to see the type of mentality that rabidly attacks in support of Kate and Gerry after all that can be read here about the case.
Over the course of the past 24 hours several hate-filled and venomous emails were sent by one person who is in support of Kate and Gerry McCann. The person who was so angry after reading this Gather News article, sent over a dozen emails using words like "white trash" and the "B word." The person also made attempts at attacking me on Facebook and Twitter showing a stalker tendency that is almost intimidating if it weren't for the fact that there is an entire ocean separating us.
After doing a little research I found that this is the norm as far as the Madeleine McCann case goes. The internet is a volatile place of division when it comes to this internationally famous missing person case. Many people believe the evidence against Kate and Gerry McCann, but there are others who refuse to acknowledge the evidence, who are so violently in support of the McCanns that they resort to making horrendous attacks -- much like whoever made death threats against Kate recently.
What is absolutely interesting, and perhaps disappointing, is the level of bias in UK reporting as well as how officials work in the UK. You see, internet trolls on Facebook are being investigated for death threats for making off color remarks about the McCann family -- yet those who are in support of this family commit acts just as vile and mean with as much vitriol and criminal intent (stalking for instance!) yet nothing is done and the media does nothing to report on the fact that both sides of the division have nuts who are guilty of making others look bad.
Hopefully some good news comes out of all of this hateful behavior, because at the end of the day a little girl is still "missing" and until some hard evidence is found to prove otherwise there will always be that hope and desperation behind the search for her -- at least for those who believe she is out there somewhere.
