This story is a strange one, even as such stories go.
The comments at the Daily Mail website are many, but none that I saw even questioned the bizarre idea that the baby-stealing murderess could pass off the stolen child as her own.
Are people so thoroughly indoctrinated to the idea that 'there is only one race, the human race,' to overlook the obvious question of how the McClain female could pretend the baby was hers?
It seems to me that there is more to the story than the pat media narrative, which is basically that a 'troubled woman', an 'RN', suddenly snapped and kidnapped a baby because she wanted another child.
By the way, the 'RN' part was not credible to me; it appears she is not in fact an RN. Why the media want to print falsehoods about her employment or credentials is beyond me, unless it's just the effort to make the accused more presentable and less dangerous to the public. Sort of a reverse poisoning of the jury pool.
So among all the comments on mainstream sites, no one brought up the question of why or how she expected to pretend the baby was hers.
This article does raise that glaringly obvious question at the very end of the piece.
The comments by British readers on the Daily Mail site also fail to mention any of the politically incorrect questions, but considering how broad the category of 'hate speech' is over there, it's not surprising. I suppose such comments would never see the light of day, even if some intrepid soul wrote about such things. And our media are not much better in allowing frank speech.
One American commenter at the Daily Mail, in response to British taunts about violent, gun-happy 'Americans', accused the British of knifing each other in great numbers. Both sides ignored the obvious fact than in each country it's not just 'people' doing these things, but certain people, for the most part.
Of course I am speaking in generalizations; but we've tried to base our policies and personal choices on the isolated exceptions for far, far too long, and at too great a cost.
Sympathies to the Schuchardt and Golden families, of course. What a tragedy for them, and ultimately for all of us.
