Like I said before....we'll see.I hope she wasn't involved.
Elizabeth smart, actually talked to police while being held captive and lied to them, in theory she could have escaped then...We don't know what this guy had told or threatened or did to this little girl..and how many kids do you see screaming bloody murder in walmart over not getting their way and you don't even turn when a child is crying.... This case may not be cut and dry, but fear can make people do strange things...Child abuse victims will most often never admit or tell about abuse till it is discovered.

Proving you wrong is as easy as scratching my azz, but to your piont as you stated " can request " is only a request and you do that by filing a case at the court house. Presently in South Carolinia (Columbia and surrounding areas) the wait to get in front of a judge is 1 year to 1 1/2 year. And no it does not qualify as an emergency hearing. That being said stop swimming in those mud puddles in Hopewell. Your damaged enough!
B.S. No court will put off a matter concerning a juvenile for a year. So, where did you prove me wrong? And we're in the commonwealth of Va, not s.c or ca.

Sammy the fisher, I used to give you a little credit as well for being dumb but you've ventured into asinine for the holiday season.....Credit denied!

How do you know the father wasnt in the picture? You are just making assumptions. And by the way, custody and support is 2 different cases. Why do you paint 12 yr olds to be idiots? I knew exactly what I was doing when I was 12. I knew right from wrong at that age. I also know that at that age, girls bodies are changing, and they are very arrogant. You are acting like 12 yr. olds are still 2.
I know the father was not in the life of the child in any meaningful way or she would have called him when she was in trouble.
Stop twisting my words, I in no way think 12 year olds are idiots! They are wonderful intelligent CHILDREN! The operative word here being children!!!!!!
You say girls bodies are changing and they are arrogant!!!!That has to be one of the stupidest things I have ever heard! What planet are you from? Oh yes, the planet where children are to blame for attracting the attention of pedophiles by being attractive to them! You make me sick!!!!!!!! I hope the FBI come to your door and check your computer!!!!

Sorry, somehow half my sentence was deleted. I was saying poor parenting did play a part I'm sure. And not everyone has daddy issues
Of course not everyone has daddy issues! What does that have to do with this case. This child needed her father, and he was not there for her. It is obvious!

OK AICBond, I will type even slower this time just for you.
I never said the father was not in the picture, but that the Courts gave custody/control to the mother.
You are the only fool that is spewing about the father not having anything to do with the child. Guess you were neglected by your father. You have my pity. That might explain your reading comprehension problem.
One more time. THE FATHER DID NOT HAVE CUSTODY so he couldn't say that the suspect couldn't move in and be around his daughter.
Take a reading comprehension class. You seem to have missed it in 2nd grade. Maybe that is why I am not the only one here that thinks you are wrong.
I repeat, the father would be able to spend some time with the child if he WANTED to do so, thus influencing the behaviour of his child. He could have given her the attention she deserved, that all children deserve.
You try to make everything personal to attempt to "win" an argum,ent because you cannot win any other way. Just makes you sound silly, you know. BTW my father was a wonderful person.
He was a very busy man, but took time away from his job to be a father.
Your personal insults do nothing to change the fact that we are STILL talking about a CHILD here. She is 12 years old peeps!
Adults need to stop blaming children for their own misdeeds.

Not quite so. Her captor had her walking the streets in plain site in the daytime.(she could also have run, but did not because she was threatened!(I think she was told her family would be hurt)

Are you saying that a father without custody should have absolutely nothing to say about what his daughter does, and who she hangs with? Fathers without custody (many of them) are STILL involved in their children's life (support payments) SUPPORT PAYMENTS!!!!!!(so mom does not have to feel she needs the extra money of moving a predator into the house) Fathers without custody may take their own children for weekends and be loving and attentive and give them LOTS of QUALITY attention so the child does not need to look for it elsewhere!!!!! Fathers without custody can have a very great influence over the mother as well, IF he is involved in the child's life, and NOT trying to dodge support payments by not seeing his own child. IF this child felt close to her daddy , and felt he would protect her if she called him, she would have CALLED him when she was in trouble and went running to him as fast as she could!!!! Face it, she was neglected by her own daddy , it is as plain as day. Even you should be able to see that!
A LE father should know better than to neglect his own child. Period!(he knows the dangers out there)
Now you are dragging her father through the mud. There is nothing to indicate he was behind on his support payments or neglectful towards his daughter, and if you think he could have interfered with the ex's sleeping arrangements.....that's a LONG process through the courts. If he went oven there and tried to take matters into his own hands, he would have been the one in trouble, so please get a grip and STFU about the Dad already!

you are very wrong" this is not a long proccess thru the court's. this can be handled within one week, thru by an emegency plea. i have seen it happen a number of times. and every time it was the mother, that had moved in with another man" or had allowed another man to move in with her and her children. the worst or last thing that he should have done was to go over there, and got involved him self physicially. being a ploice officer, he knew very well how to have handled that.

I keep repeating myself in the hope that it finally sinks in. The father didn't have custody.

That is not to say he was not involved. You have no proof that he was not involved (as in facts sport). You have disputed and denigrated his parenting skills with your posts yet have shown nothing to back up your spew.

The courts are not always interested in hearing the complaints about "he said, she said" issues. Last time a buddy of mine attempted to file with the courts they made him wait 3 months and then the ex-wife got it delayed another month after that. Ended up the court denied his request. The courts have control, not the father as you seem unable to understand.

Grow up, wake up and smell the coffee. You don't know jack, but continue to spew your crap denigrating the father. Post the facts to back up your hate filled spews.

I doubt you have any!

You think? So now you are not only blaming the father but also professing to know what the abductor told her?

Just where are you getting all of your "knowledge" from? I doubt you "know" anything!

We all know her mother was murdered. Nobody has released the facts yet about how or by whom!

My "proof" that he was not involved is that his child obviously did not turn to him in time of trouble!!!! What more proof do you need?
Listen carefully, please. If a child who had a loving involved father saw her mom get murdered, what is the first thing she would do? Call her daddy, that is what (if she could not do so right away, she would have done so when she was in the store.) She would EXPECT her daddy to protect her! Why did she not call her dad to rescue her?
Furthermore, if she did go willingly with this predator pedophile
it was BECAUSE she was not getting any attention from her own daddy! You wake up yourself and admit the facts.(you are obviously very very defensive. I wonder why? Does not take a "ghost come from the grave" to answer that one!!!!)
Let me repeat once more. what is the first thing a child in trouble does? Call daddy!!!! Daddy help!!! or mommy if daddy is not there. Why would a child NOT do so? Because she felt the dad did not care!
this father deserves to be dragged thru the mud, not the child!!!! Only a pedophile would blame a 12 year old child for anything that went on that day, and there are thousands of them out there, many are posting right here, I am sure of it. The FBI could catch a lot of them just by listening here!!!!

I agree common sense.....this father should have done everything in his power, legal or not to protect his child. I mean that! I would have! So, why did he not protect his child? Because he was not involved!(he is LE, he certainly could have "run" this pedophile and known what kind of person his own daughter was living with, and taken steps to protect her. He did not.)

You are right, perhaps the child felt more loved by the pedophile than her own daddy!(If he did love her he did not let her know it) What happened to his daughter is all his own fault!

Let's blame everyone for this tragedy accept the POS child predator. Most everyone on this topic wants to blame Mom, Dad, or the 12 year old child. What a bunch of BS. We can all sit back and Monday morning quarterback this all we want. The fact remains that a 32 year old man took advantage of a 12 year old.
No matter how old that 12 year old acted, dressed, or thought how mature she was; the fact remains that she was only 12. Britney may have thought she was in love and more grown then she really is, she probably thinks that she is in love with this 32 year old man. In reality when she gets much older she will realize that she was molested and taken advantage of and not in love.
That being said IF she had anything to do with moms demise, she should suffer the consequences of her actions as she should know right from wrong. Just what those consequences should be will depend on the totality of the circumstances of her mothers death.
People can blame mom for moving the POS in with her all they want. Mom paid for her mistake with her life. People can try and blame dad for not "being there" for his daughter all they want. Dad will second guess himself for years to come.
People can blame Britney for not escaping when she had the chance all they want. I know the Elizabeth Smart case and this case are two different things. Elizabeth was taken in the middle of the night by someone that worked for a short time at her home (I guess mom is to blame for her kidnapping since she brought Immanuel home to do some work around the house) by the standards of most people on hear. Elizabeth had opportunities to escape her captors but did not. Britney lived in the same house with this 32 yr. old and knew him. Yes she was "comfortable" with him, we do not know what she knew and when she knew it. Adults can and due have influence over children (even when the adult is not around). I have read conflicting accounts of the situation at the Safeway store in California. One account has Easley no where around, another account has Easley outside and not far from Britney. Two "eye witnesses" to an event can and often due see very different things.
Lets let LE do there jobs and gather information. No Easley has not been charged with mom's murder, but he has been the only named "person of interest" (suspect in LE terms) for mom's death. LE has NOT named Britney as a "person of interest" in her mothers death at this time.
