Okay, I’m getting a little sick of hearing about this story. First of all, was she really kidnapped? Let’s break it down:
- In just about every news story I’ve read, they refer to the kidnappers as the “alleged kidnappers”
- She was held so close to her home that it seems funny they weren’t found sooner. It seems as though her parents hired some crazy homeless people to go camping with their daughter for awhile, and when the story of her kidnapping finally died down, suddenly, she’s returned home.
- She returned calmly and has no fear of the kidnappers or the place they kept her.
Now, she’s been interviewed by Oprah and Katie Couric, has a TV-movie coming out, and a book. People are squabbling over the media coverage. What the fuck is going on here? They won’t let anyone ask Elizabeth about any details of what happened to her while she was gone… to avoid “traumatizing” her… is it a coverup? I feel very sorry for Elizabeth… You’d think her parents would want to get back to normal life… instead, they are pushing her in front of as many cameras as possible.
Oh yeah, the latest:
