Just who is in charge of the RCMP?
So – December 23rd, police arrive (see preceding post).
Twelve days later there is a mysterious message from Amanda as isabella100555. Is it faked? Does it show anything we should take into consideration?
On January 4, Amanda supposedly messaged The Daily Capper. The message said:
‘its amanda here ah i am getting black mailed and the cops are out looking for the guy that posted the video of me flashing to all my family members and friends because i didn’t do stuff with him on cam. put that in ur news people are also getting charged but the site is shut down.’
Important notes: if Amanda was the pure innocent who, as we are led to believe, flashed just the once, how come she first turns to The Daily Capper in her hour of need? This was an entity known only to a certain few at the time – those involved in online shenanigans. Either the message is fake, or it shows that Amanda was fully aware of her celebrity.
Why ‘its amanda here’ – that’s pretty friendly, as if people knew her. ‘i am getting black mailed’ – ‘i am’ not ‘have been’. Odd.
‘the cops are out looking’. Well, just where are they looking? How come they failed so miserably?
Here we go – ‘the video’. The video. What video? There’s no mention of video in the video of 2012. And no mention of it in the general media. Suddenly, photo has become video. The story ALWAYS says it’s a one-off photo. So why ‘video’?
‘didn’t do stuff with him’ – ‘with him’? That’s a whole new kettle of fish! ‘for him’, surely?
‘people are getting charged’ – really? who? ‘but the site is shut down’ – what site?
This message is bizarre. Is it true? Hundreds of people have assumed it is. It opens up a Hell of a lot of trouble if it is true. Is it just another of Amanda’s drama queen actions? Is it yet more proof of faking? Really – I have to ask again – what is going on? Just what is the truth?
One last thing: if this message is truly from Amanda, why did she not say ‘I am being blackmailed by xxxxx’? She would have known who was contacting her, and this would have been the perfect opportunity to reveal who it was to the community of which the mythical stalker was a member.
My verdict: it’s fakery of some sort, most probably from Amanda. She’s been caught out – she’s told the police that she was blackmailed, and has to use this to cover her story. She mistakenly tells the truth (video, not photo) and can’t use a name because there never was one. The cops are used as a threat to any potential future users of her pictures. There’s no record of a site being closed.
But back to the police. If the stalker story is true, they fail massively at this point to find anybody. If it isn’t true, then they also fail to get Amanda on some sort of lockdown – she’s back online three weeks later. Did they just call at 4 a.m., faff about, and go?
In the background, the 2012 video leads us to believe she got into drugs and alcohol. Now, we know that this seems to be compulsory in British Columbia, but joking aside, were the cops not interested in all this? A 14 year old using drugs (most likely marijuana) and alcohol? If not the cops (she is, after all, breaking the Law) then why not some sort of social services? She would have been of some concern to them, given the circumstances. Somebody, somewhere, is missing a trick here.
A year goes by and, according to the story, the SAME individual comes back. The SAME individual, for Pete’s sake! So, I’m guessing he’s using the same online identity as the year before – clearly not a subtle and clever person. And it’s the SAME one. I really do find this difficult to believe. It just doesn’t fit, but I think I’ve covered that before in this blog.
But the police STILL can’t find him. He’s got a Facebook page this time. It’s not like he’s gone off-the-map undercover. He’s not Lord Lucan or flipping Osama bin Laden. And the police STILL don’t have a clue? And we STILL have no name, not even of the Facebook page? And Amanda is still all over the Internet? And STILL nobody seems to respond? This is all too much.
I have to take a deep breath as I continue with this fiasco. We supposedly have some young kid, extremely vulnerable, up to all sorts of mischief, possibly under threat – yet apparently so lacking in supervision or help. Police, parents, teachers, just where were you in all this? And it gets worse.
Next, we have even more ludicrous events – the under-age sex and the fight. Now – let me tell you this. In EVERY civilised country, under-age sex is a felony. It is a serious matter. At certain levels, it is passed over as just one of the things that teens do – if every teen was prosecuted, the courts would be overwhelmed. It mostly remains a secret – only coming to light in teenage pregnancies or if the couple are caught out by parents. It is by no means a rarity. But in this instance – don’t you think there would have been some serious consequences? Vulnerable child, at high risk, with a history – and nobody seems to have really bothered? No serious investigation – child not, perhaps, even taken away from parents and into some sort of care system. I know that care systems are not necessarily the best of institutions, but one would expect to see SOME evidence of a reaction to all this.
But leave the sex bit out. What about the fight? No investigation by the police? This is, after all, assault and harassment. (One has to ask again: what the Hell did the parents think they were doing?). But not the slightest hint of any repercussions; not even a telling off?
And what about all the Facebook ‘I hope she’s dead’ messages? Ignored? The bleach pictures? All allowed free rein? At what point do the police or other authorities step in to say that enough is enough? Get her off Facebook, for God’s sake!
So – we’ve seen the complete ineptitude of the RCMP (and, of course, others). But the response after the event was even more astonishing. After the event, the RCMP announce that they are going to assign dozens of full-time investigators to the case. Why AFTER the event? Where were they before? What can they hope to achieve?
It’s all a pack of lies. But I’m not too sure why, though I can have some guesses.
The police were supposedly meant to be monitoring the RIP pages for clues – clues to what? The stalker was long gone – back in 2011. And they never found him then. There was no recent connection between any stalker and the events that took place. The closest things that would have had an impact on her death were the school fight and the following online comments – all carried out by her peers, kids aged around 14-15, and all perpetrators would have been known. What, exactly, would have merited such a response?
There was never any evidence of the police monitoring the RIP pages. Two things would have happened if they did: they would have rapidly detected the scam pages (most of them still there) and they would have not allowed all the trolling. They supposedly received many reports from the RIP pages, to which they replied with a stock email, but I’m guessing that most of them went in the bin. One kid got arrested in New Zealand, and it was quickly realised that posting the video was dangerous, but pics, censored and uncensored, kept appearing, and still do. I, myself, reported ME to the police – three times via their Facebook page, and I contacted them directly. No response. Not even an acknowledgement.
Just what were they looking for? Someone to come online and say ‘I was the stalker’? Snippets of information – all of which was available online to anyone with the slightest ability to use Google? And why respond so suddenly and dramatically, after years of complacency?
Here are some possible reasons: the event was an opportunity to get some tips regarding pedophile rings. That’s feasible. But all the relevant information regarding BlogTV and all the history was open to everyone – The Daily Capper supplied vast amounts of free info. There was never any suggestion in the Amanda story that everything was done by some sort of clandestine, super-secret society – the imaginary stalker was hardly hidden away.
Another reason: would the RIP pages supply more background to the events? To a certain extent, they did, but not in a good way. If the police didn’t know about her online activity, they certainly do now.
Another reason: all events like these are investigated thoroughly. It was just PR by the police to make it look like they were concerned.
And now – my final and – I admit it – relatively sensationalist claims:
either the police knew it was all faked, and went overboard to give it credibility
or there was something more – much more – behind the story. Remember – most crimes involving children are carried out by those closest to them.
I will leave you to ponder that. And remember – four months on and there’s not been one iota of news from the RCMP.
