The Smarts have hired over 50 homeless people to help around their house....which left the police with a ton of people who knew the layout of the house.
WTF?
 
2003-03-12 07:38:24 PM
Damn, these Mormons that found her are getting ambushed at the press conference...farking reporters.

Regardless of weather-or-not she was abducted or ranaway from home, she's alive and that is all that matters at this point.
 
2003-03-12 07:38:49 PM
Wydok, the Burger King connection is that the two people sending in the tips saw her in a Burger King, walking down a street underneath a billboard with her picture on it, and standing around at a bus stop.

Later.

from CNN:

"Police were tipped to Elizabeth's whereabouts by a caller who saw her with two other people pass a billboard with her picture on it identifying her as a missing person.

Note to self: When kidnapping people do not take victim near large billboards with victims picture and the words "Missing Person" on it.

lesson to be learned: Don't hire so many handy men.

i believe we could all learn from this. i mean, really, how much of their shiat is breaking? & why hire ex-con/homeless instead of 'REPUTABLE' handy men? cheap rich folks. *shakes head*

pickle:
So the story changed that she was not threatened? That she only really saw him take her sister? from a 9 year old?? Dude...yer stretchin.


cops are VERY thourough w/ their questions and statements, often going back a few times. i think she was coached. in any case, the story should have been the same......but it wasn't. something "hinkey" is going on (went on) and we may not know.

this wasn't a normal kidnapping (rape & release vs. rape & murder) but holding a bright kid for 8-9 months a couple of miles from home.

btw, as for handyman? yes......i worked w/ a dude who became a handyman (after getting fired from my job) and killed an old lady for a few 100 bucks. bah.....

Yeah, Fooshnik. Sounds like a scene from Airplane! III: The Trilogy.

For you mormon "experts" here, SLC is only about 45% LDS...the state on the whole is about 75% mormon.
 
2003-03-12 07:41:47 PM
You know with a massive story like this one, the first reports are--reported--whether they are true or not. Some of the first reports said that she was found at a Burger King. That's all.

I think she was brainwashed. Probably the kidnapper is religious and she was one of his wives. It's no weirder than what was going on with that guy who was recently convicted of polygamy. He married a couple of his wives when they were 15. Married one of them at 15 or 16, then when her sister hit 15, he married her too. Blech.

You forget about the time she spent in Atlanta and SanDiego. She was not here the whole 8 months...no one knows how long she was here at all.

Thanks, Robsul82, for the info.

There were several sightings before they were picked-up, Sonic Burger, Walmart, bus bench so far

That is one intersection. Its a mile away from my house.
 
2003-03-12 07:44:09 PM
Around here we call people from Utah "U-tards." And that has nothing to do with Mormons. We have no problem insulting those from Utah without bringing religion into it!...And maybe because my town is about half Mormon.
 
2003-03-12 07:45:37 PM
Question asked to the tipsters:

"Were they dressed like hippies?"

"Oh, yes. Looks strange around here."

Wow.

"How about we knock off the Mormon bashing & Mormon jokes, ok? regardless of what religion she and her family believes in, the fact is she was taken from her family and now she is returned."

-Palverone

People on fark have been mormon bashing for quite some time I don't think others should request a temporoary ban on mormon bashing because a little girl was returned to her home after 8 months and happens to be mormon
 
2003-03-12 07:50:39 PM
My guess is her father is literally going to kill her. I believe she ran away because her father, being a devout mormon, sexually mentally and physicly abused her. Now he'll probably kill her to restore his family's honor and street preacher will get blamed for that. The church could arrange it. Utah is run by a vast mormon conspiracy that has as much racist hatred as any of Hitler's Nazies. They also treat their women just as bad as any muslim does. That's what mormon is; a combination Nazism/Islam.

This isn't trolling, these are my honest beliefs. If I had know Smart was still alive and well prior to anyone finding her, I would have prayed no one ever did.

Robsul82: Ding ding ding, MSNBC has an ex-FBI man on who just suggested Elizabeth has Stockholm Syndrome.

Based on what he has heard about her on the news. The girl has been found for slightly more than 3 hours.

Able to jump to conclusions at the speed of light, it's SuperMedia!

I'm not saying it isn't possible. I'm saying everyone is trying to get in their opinion so they can get on TV.

Dude...whatever. My neighbor is a state senator (non-morMAN) and our mayor is not a mormon either. There are MANY non-mormons in state government here.

Do you live here? Do you have any idea about what you are talking about? or were you just hoping to hide behind the wall of the internet, and expect no one to challenge info that leaks from your anus?

No...its trolling. Tell my wife that this is how you think she is treated ("as bad as any muslim does") and she will kick you in the nutts so hard you'd have a hard time remembering your name.
 
2003-03-12 07:54:28 PM
I don't have time to read the thread, but I assume there's been a bit of arguing, a bit of condescension, and a bit of war talk. Close?

I welled up just imagining that it was my child that was taken, with every day having been an ordeal worrying about her, with some resignation setting in over the past couple of months. Then, while going through your everyday life, trying to forget your heartbreak, you get the news.

Happiest. Parents. Ever.

 
2003-03-12 07:54:40 PM
Hehe, yep. I could see a little of Chuck Manson in this dude, sure. And about MSNBC, hey, I'd like not to be watching a channel that tossed off Donahue to employ The Savage Weiner, but hey. Best I can do now.

Best news all day. What will be even better is if they catch Osama.

At least this whole debacle will teach famliies not to let 50 homeless people into their home - look at the consequences.

I'm not talking about governmental, just the church "they" run things, granted it's been a long time since I was there I did my time in Roy, Ogden, and St George but everywhere you look you see it the pressure is always there, hey have you got your weekly visit by the missionaries yet? You can set your clock by those suckers.

If only this guy was an ex-contestant on "American Idol"...it would be a schlockathon from on-high.

A little over the top, but I mostly agree with you too. Americans are quick to condemn Muslims as woman-hating freaks with strange sexual hang-ups, but when it's rich white guys...

...hey, that's different.
 
2003-03-12 08:01:03 PM
just think

relatively obscure life, get kidnapped, 8 months later get found and suddenly a worldwide celebrity miracle poster child.

woowooo

You got visits from missionaries every week? Whatever dude. Guess what...even if that were true, tell them to get the hell of your porch. Simple as that.

Sorry...but you gotta say something that makes me think you actually know something for me to give it consideration. So far you have just chucked out stereotypes and fairy tales.
 
2003-03-12 08:02:19 PM
I'm amazed and so happy they found this young lady safe and alive. I was sure that she'd not survived.
Don't understand why this family would bring in homeless people in their home either though, it's asking for disaster. There are many other ways to help the homeless than bring them into your home where children are.
Neverless this is the best news I've read in awhile...
 
2003-03-12 08:03:20 PM
Buddypickle,

I was invited by a Mormon friend to a play at his ward when I was in high school. A local newspaper reporter attended to provide coverage to the event. She was wearing a skirt that stopped above her knees. A woman sitting behind me saw her and said, "Look at that. She's not one of us." Explain to me how that isn't elitist? I live in Mesa, Arizona, so don't give me the whole "you don't know anything about Mormons" rap...this is Little Salt Lake.
 
2003-03-12 08:04:11 PM
Hey, how did she get out of my dungeon???
