The case of the Ahmed girl whose remains were found on a Cumbria river bank shows just how irregularly such- possibly caste- murders are handled by police. Her parents always denied involvement. The fact she wanted to be a lawyer may have caused tensions.
Despite her remains being found in 2004 the parents were not able to face charges due one assumes to evidence being insufficient. Yet now the police are certain it was them. So they face murder charges.
Yet as often in these cases they do not tell us how the past evidence was said to be insecure, yet now secure enough to accuse the parents of murder. That is not to say they have not done it. Just that the public do not know why in such situations the police suddenly revise their reasoning. Some ideas may come into the human mind regarding whether police see such vulnerable lives as negligible, like when they found a Wakefield lad drowned in a canal last year, but when we also did not hear of a murder hunt.
The Cumbria head of childrens' services was charged from what we hear with killing her own kids in recent times. You wonder if it is a characteristic of the area that Cumbria had been getting known as a vulnerable persons' dumping ground. Why are these deaths and bodies being associated with that area? There certainly was not a good lead from the top. If the Ahmed parents did this murder and they knew that the head of childrens' services was leading at the period of 2004, did they feel that she would let someone get away with such a murder?
How many more cases have police seen, outwardly at least, as vulnerable people deserving low respect for life? Will more definite certain convictions result? That said, the killer of top news lady Jill Dando remains at large and the police do not seem to care? Is there any regularity at all in whose life they choose to respect?
