Chevaline Murders: stupidity of Daily Mail and French cops mucking it up even
more (if that's possible).
Daily Mail "replacement" article.
Coming up on a year after four people were gunned down near
the village of Chevaline in the French Alps, the media and police bs gets even
Daily Mail dishonesty
On Mar24.2013, the UK Daily Mail ran the headline "Man
arrested in Alps murder case that massacred British family,"
which in itself pretty well indicates the incompetence of the DM hacks. How is
it that a murder case massacres anyone?
That article, which was published anonymously, said that a man suspected of
supplying the gun used to kill the family and Sylvain Mollier had been arrested
in Switzerland. That was a pretty crazy allegation since the gun has never been
found, as I wrote at the
time. As far as I know, not another word was ever said about this
"suspect" or his arrest.
Then, this week, Jun24, DM did something both stupid and smelly. It published
an article by Martin Robinson that was so badly written it almost could
not be interpreted. That article is identified in its link as 2347251. It was
about Surrey police arresting Zaid al-Hilli, brother of the murdered man.
The Robinson article claimed that this was the first arrest in the case Ė
completely contradicting the DM article of Mar24.
The original Robinson article had a timestamp of 10:07 GMT Jun24, it was soon
modified slightly without correcting any of the myriad semantic, grammatical,
and factual errors, and Peter Allen was added as a co-author.
To give you an idea of how incompetent the Robinson article was, look at this
Zaid Al-Hilli was held nine months after his sibling Saad Al-Hilli, his
wife Ikbal, Mrs Al-Hilliís mother Suhaila al-Allaf, and cyclist Sylvain
Mollier, were all shot dead near Annecy, in September last year.
This sentence clearly states that Zaidís sibling, his wife, and his mother-in-law
were shot dead, which is, of course, idiocy. For most of these DM hacks,
English is, apparently, a second or third language. But thatís not the
smelly part, thatís just an example of the stupid part.
Today, the same link that originally pointed to Robinson article Ė
2347251 Ė now goes to a completely different DM article that is authored by Arthur
Martin, Christian Gysin, and Neal Sears.
IOW, anyone trying to get to the original Robinson disaster goes to the new
article instead -- it's as if the Robinson article never existed. This new
article shows the original timestamp, which is a lie, and an update timestamp of
11:57 GMT, Jun24 Ė three minutes before midnight. Although the original
2347251 article no longer exists on the DM website, but it was captured at Grendel
Report. (It looks like in the
Grendel Report re-publishing someone tried to convert the GMT timestamps to EDT
and messed up by an hour, probably using British daylight time instead of GMT.)
So, letís just review this DM chicanery. At 10:07 GMT on Jun24 the DM
published an article by Robinson about Zaid al-Hilliís arrest. Sometime after
that they slightly modified that article and added Peter Allen as co-author.
Then, moments before midnight the same day, they replaced the entire text of the
Robinson article including the headline, and they replaced the authors, Robinson
and Allen, with Martin, Gysin, and Sears, all under the exact same link. Then at
8:48 GMT Jun25 a
new article on Zaid al-Hilli is published listing Allen, Martin, Gysin,
and Sears as authors. This article was
updated at 9:06 GMT. It adds the information that Zaid was busted because he had
ignored a French subpoena.
Maybe itís done all the time, but I have never seen this kind of dishonesty
before Ė eradicating an embarrassingly fucked article by completely
over-writing it and keeping the link. So I think itís important to now
note that these DM editors are not just stupid Ė as is documented on this
website over and over Ė they are devious as well. But letís continue with
this Zaid al-Hilli arrest story.
Eric Maillaud has the brains of a nematode
But what about this theory that the al-Hillis were killed by Zaid so he could
collect all of the inheritance of the father, Kahdem? Of course, this
theory has been circulating since day one, but it has never really
gotten off the ground. In fact, the Zaid theory is been explicitly rejected by
investigators. In a RIZE
Productions documentary published on Jun06.2013, Eric Maillaud,
the French detective in charge, muses about whether one brother would kill
another over an inheritance even if they hate each other, and concludes that the
answer is no. Then Maillaud immediately contradicts himself by saying one of the
stupidest things a cop in his position could possibly say: some people have so
little self-control that if they see the only solution is to kill, then they
kill. [RIZE doc at about 31:00]
This dolt detective is suggesting that Zaid had so little
"self-control" that he hired a hitman to kill not just his brother,
but his nieces, his sister-in-law, and her mother. I am incredulous at the
audacity of this prick. Maillaud doesn't venture to tell us how wiping out
the entire family would be a "solution" to the inheritance
dispute? Saadís part of the inheritance would then be distributed
according to his will, which surely did not include Zaid. Furthermore, if
Zaidís self-control was so weak that he would wipe out his entire family, then
he would have been busted years ago for other lapses of self-control. But
Saad's best mate described Zaid described in the RIZE doc as being very
meek. He's a dentist, for god's sake.
But there are other glaring holes in Maillaudís Zaid theory. First of all,
Sylvain Mollier was shot first in the massacre, and he took 7 rounds. That
indicates clearly that he was the primary target and was killed not by a
professional killer but by some amateur in a fit of rage or passion, as I
discussed in The
Second, had the al-Hillis been victims of Zaidís contract killing, then the
killers would have had to know that the family was going to be on the mountain
when they were. But the RIZE doc states, at about 10:00, that on the day of the
murders, al-Hilli asked the campsite manager where a good place to hike would
be, and the manager directed them to Chevaline.
This fact completely destroys all conspiracy theories whether they be
international or internecine because it means nobody but the camp manager could
know the al Hillis were going to be driving up the Combe díIre that
afternoon. Even the camp manager couldnít know for sure that that's
where they were going or when they would be there.
The RIZE doc also repeats the well known testimony of two people in Chevaline
who saw the al-Hillis car pass through the village and said no one was following
them. Combine the facts that no one had advance notice where the al-Hillis would
be, and nobody was following them, with the fact that Mollier was the first to
be killed and he was killed in a hail of bullets, and the idea that Zaid was the
killer becomes utterly preposterous.
Zaid's arrest looks like a diversion.
