I hate to say I told you so, but I did.

Some of you may remember my blog about Madeleine McCann. She is the little girl that went missing while on vacation with her family in Portugal. To view the original blog, go to: No equal treatment in America (in my May blogs). Charges have still not been filed against the parents for leaving her alone in her hotel room.

On June 12, 2007 a fire broke out in Pittsburgh claiming the lives of five young children. Daekia Holyfield, 7; Cedano Holyfield, 4; Dezekiah Holyfied, 3; Azquel Rankin, 5; and Andre Rankin, 6. Two eight year boys were able to escape the fire uninjured.

Two Mothers of the five children killed had left the children alone, for a reported 15 to 20 minutes, while they went to a bar and had one beer. Shakita Mangham and Fuhara “T” Love are facing charges of Involuntary Manslaughter, reckless endangering firefighters, endangering the welfare of children, and one count of making false reports to police. The false report charge stemmed from Mangham’s initial report that the children were left with a babysitter, which later proved to be false.

WHERE IS THE EQUAL TREATMENT HERE????? Can anyone tell me WHY these women are facing such harsh punishment when Madeleine’s McCann’s parents are being celebrated and supported? THEY ARE ALL GUILTY! If the McCann’s had been in the hotel room with their children, they could possibly prevented the kidnapping of their daughter. It Mangham and Love were at home with their children, they could have possibly saved their children’s lives.

It really upsets me to think that money, race or community status. I’m so tired of seeing it. In cases like these, EQUAL TREATMENT should be enforced.

Interesting, I haven't heard about the little kids that died in the fire. You know, that really is unfair that those parents in Portugal haven't been arrested. I think they should be.

You know I always felt bad because I never jumped on the McCann bandwagon. I never read the whole story but I always thought something fishy was going on. But then here you say that they left her alone in the hotel room and she got kidnapped...and you are right they are being celebrated. That isn't fair in general justice needs to be served....

I couldnt agree more Jen! I still think there is something fishy going on with the McCann case...but there is a disparity between the have and the have nots...

I completely agree! I don't understand why anyone would choose to leave their children alone while they do whatever they think is so much more important. Regardless of where or what was the result, it is all the same and should receive the same punishment.
