Large-bottomed Thief Caught with His Pants Down - Funny bloopers are a click away

In CM Newspaper February 12, 2010 - 00h30

"Almancil: Burglar stuck in hole in supermarket

He became known as the 'stuck thief ', after having been stuck in the wall of a supermarket in Almancil, when he tried to get in through a narrow window, three months ago. The owner has not filed a complaint against him. Now, the burglar made a complaint against the trader, saying that he was attacked while he was stuck in the hole in the wall.

The 22 year-old, a Romanian national and suspect of belonging to a gang who targets establishments and homes, was eight hours stuck half inside and half outside the supermarket. When the GNR (Police) arrived he had his pants down to the knees.

The immigrant, heard in court and released, alleges that someone took off his pants and assaulted him before the arrival of the authorities. Although he did not see who was the alleged perpetrator of the assault - because he had his head inside the hole of the Supermarket Alisuper - the burglar accused the owner.

The merchant, Antonio Oliveira, thinks the "situation is hilarious" and assured CM to have a "clear conscience". Recalls that when he discovered the situation, "the boy had his trousers down and was without shoes." He called the GNR "immediately".

The complaint of the burglar was sent to the prosecutor, who will accept it or not."

Never a dull moment in the Algarve.
Some people lose a daughter, others lose their pants. What they have in common, besides losing something personal under the blue sky of Algarve? They blame and sue others for their actions.
But then again, this is a country where a Prime Minister riddled with cases where he's under suspicion gets re-elected...

Cojones, Señor?

Some fine, informed people have the cojones to speak FREELY about Madeleine McCann.
It was about time someone debated the case, in public, openly, frankly and FREELY!
One Portuguese - Dr. Paulo Sargento and an informed Spanish panel are a breath of fresh air, after the usual torrent of fluff and McPropaganda coming out of the spineless British and Portuguese media.

The McCx Files

The Madeleine McCann mystery and the struggle between those who want to find out and reveal the truth and those who are doing everything to stop them. The truth is out there, and here: and here: and in many places more. See for yourself - don't let anyone tell you what to believe.

Welcome to the Twilight Zone

Once again, I have to offer appologies for another embarassing cock-up performed by the Portuguese...
Last time was the re-election of 'Socrates-gate' - the number one 'suspect' in Portugal of interfering with Madeleine McCann's investigation (among other suspicions); this time, yesterdays' ignoranous decision by a Judge to uphold the BAN on Gonçalo Amaral's book and his DVD... and if that wasn't already too much, he is FORBIDDEN of EXPRESSING his views on the subject of Madeleine McCann...

How to explain that? Well, anyone who can find a good reason to ban books and stifle someone, isn't really a friend of Democracy and Free Speech, if you ask me; but nowadays, not many people give a flying-fudge about these things. Some even don't call this censorship... How to explain this?...

Anyway, the Judge based her decision NOT on what was shown in court, but on what wasn't shown... confused? Well, there you go. When you don't have a solid fundament to justify your decision, make one up!
The Judge was quoted by the Press and by the McCann's Lawyer, stating that she has read the files of the case, in full, as presented by the M.P.; and she found that G.Amaral's defense only called witneses who shared his theory... still confused?

Well, seems like this is the first case in the world where you're supposed to call witnesses that actually will not help you or even support the other contender.
Nevermind what the witnesses you called said; what the Judge cares is what the others you din't call have to say... get it now?

Not only that but the Judge also issued her own opinion, stating that as an ex-cop, G.Amaral should have kept some 'reserve' about what happened during the investigation that he was leading in 2007...
I don't think ex-cops are bound by trade-secrecy... that would also defeit the purpose of his book, which was to clear his name and provide his side of the story, because as we know, his supperiors were to 'reserved' to do so...

Did you get it now? Well, if not, take comfort that this is not a permanent ban - that will come later (just kidding but it could become dead serious if the McCanns win their coming Law Suit against G.Amaral).

While the Portuguese watch every day on the news their Prime Minister claiming his innocense and reporters complaining of herassment and pressures, they just shrug their shoulders and eat another sardine.
Over to you again, UK -  the ball is on your field... hope you can do better than us...

Part IV - The I.D. Show

Isabel Duarte puts on a display of her own to divert attentions from what really is going on - the McCanns have no case and they know it.
See you in court on the 18th, for the verdict - I'm not the betting type, but I bet it's going to be a fine victory for G. Amaral, Justice and Free Expression!

Part III - Reporter Wiped Smirk Off of G's Face

Watch the video and you can see the change in the McCanns - in the beginning, arrogant; at the end, rattled and pissed off... and it was about friggin' time.

McCanns outside Lisbon Court, 10th Feb (II)

McCanns outside the Lisbon Court, 10th Feb.:
Probably the words so many have been waiting ti hear from the McCanns: "'We are more than happy' to re-open the case" and "do a reconstruction". Of course, these are just words, like so many others uttered in vain by these two and their associates.
It is up to the public opinion now to make sure they keep their word.
This is the best service anyone can do to help Madeleine.

McCanns v Amaral Final Hearng 10.02.'10 (I)

Contrasting moods outside the Lisbon Court where the final allegations took place, seem to indicate the direction the verdict is going...

The Good, The Bad and the Will it Ever End...

Sergio Leone's 'Western Spaghetti' classics have a new, much more lame, sequel - the 'Western Sardine' Trilogy... Warning: This vid is PG Rated - Parental Guidance recommended and TALAWFPRMC - Think And Let Authorities Work Freely, Re-open Madeleine's Case.

My way of marking the 1000 days Madeleine has been missing... and the show must go on...
