GERRY MCCANN UNDERSTANDS WHY PEOPLE KILL THEMSELVES

GERRY MCCANN UNDESTANDS WHY PEOPLE KILL THEMSELVES

We were in front of the world, portrayed as being guilty. That was certainly the worst moment after we discovered that Madeleine had disappeared Gerry McCann

18th September 2011 By Jonathan Corke


GERRY McCann has revealed how during his darkest days he began to understand why people took their own lives.

The doting dad has been to hell and back since his daughter Madeleine vanished on holiday in Portugal.

Gerry McCann and wife Kate were made official suspects by Portuguese police.

But they were both later cleared and now British officers are studying Portuguese police files in the hope of finding fresh clues about Madeleine.

The couple travelled to Germany last week in a bid to spark new information from German tourists in Portugal at the time.

The couple revealed the anguish of coming under suspicion and the tactics used to try to force them to confess.

In one interview Gerry said he and Kate had been put under “incredible psychological pressure” and had been asked to admit hiding Madeleine’s body.

He said: ‘We were in front of the world, portrayed as being guilty. That was certainly the worst moment after we discovered that Madeleine had disappeared.

“This tactic is used, not only in Portugal, there are such cases in the UK.

“But everybody who uses this tactic and participates has to be clear they can destroy lives.

“I can now understand why people admit to things they haven’t done. I can understand why people kill themselves after such an experience.”

Kate said she believed police were desperate to nail someone for the crime.

She said: “They were very obviously under pressure and could not cope well with this pressure. They had to find a solution.”

In the interview with Stern newspaper Gerry said they deeply regretted leaving Madeleine alone in the holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in May 2007.

But he said: “At that time we felt incredibly safe. We had dinner about 50 yards from our apartment.”

The couple, who also appeared on the Beckmann TV talk show, are hoping the visit will generate new leads.
The Algarve is a huge draw for German tourists and many also live in and around Praia da Luz.

Kate and Gerry, both 43, from Rothley, Leics, remain hopeful that witnesses will come forward.

Gerry said: “We are confident we will find Madeleine. But every day’s a day too long.”

So the loss of a daughter, for which they -whatever happened- are responsible though their substandard paenting, does not make him suicidal, but a dent in his image does.

Narcissism anyone?

Well put IJ - How dare Gerry Mccann say this - who's fault was it that the children were left alone - It was his and Kate's decision - whether the doors were locked or not! - NO ONE else was to blame (even if an imaginary "abductor" happened on an open door). - They were negligent in their parenting - that is all there is to say!

Nothing to do with the libel trial.....................?


[snipped]
The McCanns decided on the figure of £1 million (£1.2 million Euros) as the sum they wish to claim for defamation against the former PJ police officer.


What they are demanding
£430,000 damages for Madeleine which will be used to continue the search for her.
£215,000 for each parent for the emotional distress the book has caused them. They say they suffer 'permanent anxiety, insomnia, lack of appetite, irritability and an indefinable fear'. The writ also says Kate McCann is 'steeped in a deep and serious depression'.
£86,000 for each of their twins Sean and Amelie, who could hear his allegations when they start school in September.

Is this what deep and serious depression looks like? Because it was only when they were promoting their book in Amsterdam a couple of months ago that they looked this 'depressed'.

And if Gerry is suffering permanent anxiety, insomnia, irritability and indefinable fear then he should really give up his job for the safety of his patients. Surely the Fund and the Book are providing enough income now for him to quit?

What do they have an indefinable fear of?

Being caught?

As always the truth is hidden in there: I believe their only fear is that the twins will start questioning their lake of parenting and all that follows after that.



I don't think they fear the police so much, or the media. I do think they want to silence everyone, but that the biggest drive for all these libel suits is their/especially Kate's need for power.

The Mccanns are sick in the head. When they go to sleep at night they can never rest easily because they know they used their daughters name to scam the world in order to make money

They can never have the peace that they are responsible decent parents, let alone human beings...enjoy your money McCanns, it won't bring you true true happiness

The rest of us can sleep at nights knowing we are decent honest people, and had Maddie been our child, we would never ever have gone down the money making scam that they did

If you want inner peace McCanns....then confess the truth, this is the only way you can get it

So losing a child under tragic circumstances didn't cause them emotional distress?
Losing a child didn't cause them to suffer 'permanent anxiety, insomnia, lack of appetite, irritability and an indefinable fear'?
Losing a child didn't cause Kate McCann to be 'steeped in a deep and serious depression'?

No, it was Amaral's book.

So there you have it Madeleine. You can rest in peace knowing you didn't cause your parents any emotional distress at your loss - it was a book detailing the findings of the investigation wot dun it.

McCann propaganda.

It makes you wonder, the people writing this stuff for the McCanns must also have a disregard for the life of a child.

Why does anyone by these newspapers at all.

Why do the media still kow tow to the Mighty McCanns, does it means they're still pulling strings even now Clarrie has gone? Has someone taken over from Clarrie?

We've just had the Leicester Mercury and now the Star, no great paper, but the whole gist of the article is:
Stupid, incompetent Portugese Police,
Honest SY bending over the problem.
Brave McCanns. Yes, it was hard to read on after the doting dad. Perhaps too doting?

Is there nothing we can do to help Amaral? They're already in contempt of court by not releasing his books.
Is Portugese police still contrained by the agreement between Socrates and Brown?

Hi, I am new to this forum, and have already made a few posts on this case after reading a lot of the info. out there. Are these people serious???? In that a book written about the findings by G. Amaral caused them all their emotional problems they are experiencing? Good grief, what about little Madeline whom to date has not been found, that doesn't cause them immense emotional heartache and distress? Wow, just wow!

It takes a very long time after the loss of a child to even feel half way normal again, and from my own personal experience, something that never goes away, but you learn to live with it. God only knows if a child is missing, what those poor people endure, bad enough when they die tragically, and at least you know what happened.

I must say, from what i have read a great deal of suspicion does rest with the parents, just in the way they have portrayed themselves in the public via the media.

But, as is the case where parents or caregivers of a child are lying, that is instant red flags! If these two are innocent, there would be no discrepencies as to the statements given to the police, or in what they say to anyone else for that matter.

Sadly the burden of responsibility is on their heads for the safety and wellbeing of their children, and they seem to want to excuse that fact. I really am surprised they have at least not been charged with child neglect, that resulted in the disappearance of their daughter Madeline for whatever reason. Its not like they had a babysitter watching over the little ones, and the McCanns as adults must at least realise the risks they took, no matter how safe they thought it was to leave their children unattended. Of that much, they are Guilty, and it did result in their child coming to harm, by being removed in whatever way from that apartment and her family.

She can't rest in peace right now, she's busy selling newspapers, books, paying for mortgages for the media, solicitors and bringing in fund revenue. And no doubt keeping a watchful eye on the twins.

There is clear evidence of their 'permanent anxiety, insomnia, lack of appetite, irritability and an indefinable fear', and of their 'deep and serious depression'
Let us remind ourselves.


And it continues to the present day.

Not only that, they made the photo disappear because they only wanted photos that don't show them laughing or happy or any of those disgusting state of minds.

Don't worry about that Joss, Kate says they slept well after 5 days!

lj, Yes it appears from what has been said that after 5 days no problem sleeping. Well that's okay, they have to sleep sometime i guess, and maybe KM & GM took some sleep aid to help them sleep?, but there are still their two remaining children to take care of as well. It's how you feel when you wake up as to the shock of what has happened, and it hits you again when you do first awaken from sleep. When my son died tragically, this is how i felt. I would cry myself to sleep, and exhausted enough to do that just from the sheer rollercoaster of emotions at the time. It took a long time before i felt differently, and at the time i had a two yr. old to take care of as well, so i needed some energy for that, and looking back on it now, i don't know how i survived.

I can't say from the perspective of a child being missing though what a parent goes through. It must be horrendous. As i have said its bad enough when a child dies and you know what has happened to them, but to wake up with the torment of wondering where they could be, and what exactly has happened, it must be shocking.

And from the evidence in the McCann case, i don't think highly trained cadaver dogs usually get it wrong!

And where is Madeline? Four long years and no trace of her yet. We have a couple of cases here in America where children have gone missing, and at least a year or so has gone by and still they haven't been found.

It is just unreal how something so terrible happens at all.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. No parent wants to outlive their child.

You have described what I would expect from parents of a missing child - tormented.

I don't think that shows in any of these photos http://goncaloamaraltruthofthelie.blogspot.com/2008/06/search-for-maddie.html
