Doubt the McCanns? Go to Jail

Do you doubt the McCanns (both Kate and Gerry) and their insistence that their daughter Maddie was kidnapped? Well, if you live in the UK you might want to be careful about how you express that, apparently. Tony Bennett was recently found guilty of contempt after he published letters that he wrote accusing Kate and Gerry McCann of having something to do with Madaleine's disappearance (or death).

Naturally, the McCanns aggressively pursued his and he has been given a suspended jail sentence of three months. Bennett has written such works as What Really Happened to Madeleine McCann? 10 Key Reasons which Suggest that She Was Not Abducted, a work that has been called "libelous" in the UK—even if extremely valid points were brought to attention.

Finding Bennett guilty is a laughable display of just how little the UK government values freedom of speech, and it's a blatant show of just how much they disrespect the sharing of valid arguments against the blindly accepted belief that Madeleine McCann was kidnapped while her parents dined with friends—several yards away from the unattended child and her much-younger siblings.

Luckily there are countries, such as the United States, where people are not punished for openly expressing and sharing ideas—just as Tony Bennett has done. Nobody can extinguish the First Amendment that is every American's right—and it's this American's right to boldly say that Tony Bennett is not only credible in his opinions, but he is now a martyr for the cause of spreading awareness of this case and the monster it has become.
