What I read between the lines with all the separation between the two families the lack of empathy for the BC's from the Dickies. I think the picture is very clear. I am glad his parents have supported him cause why would anyone else?
The so called 'pillar' of society man involved in the oh so honorable scouting movement since day dot along with his born to aristocracy family, an advocate for the public school his daughters attend and has become the director of chamber of commerce within the community despite having no valid university credentials and who has built a so called reputation in the real estate business on honesty and integrity yet finds solace in the arms of possibly many women often behind his wifes back who he keeps at bay with violence and threats and has the audacity to further destroy his family unit by parading around with these women for all to see. Yet all the while insisting that he has a quiet little family who he adores and worships. (This is my opinion only of course.) But seriously tell me who is going to come out and support him. This is just the tip of the iceberg!!!! 80% of the iceberg cannot be seen.
Many are saying how the Dickies are so great but personally I think their pointed releases to the media are narky...leaving out their granddaughters fathers name off things...even if he did take Allisons life he is still their father and that can not be erased"

"if it was an accidental death a normal person would call an ambulance, gerard seems normal, just an average person,not a psychopath, if he did it accidentally why didnt he call an ambulance?
it would take nerves of steel for an average person to hide a crime like this, so im wondering if it was pre planned"
I read this and felt compelled to reply. We don't know that GBC is an "average" person. There are plenty of appearingly "average" persons who have sociopathic tendencies or are in fact psychopaths. I've said this before - people do not get a diagnosis of psychopathy - unless they are involved in a criminal activity. Or at least extraordinarily rarely. The nature of psychopathy is that these people are "seemingly" "normal"...
There is a very large piece of this story missing. I fear I may be the only one shocked if he gets convicted of murdering her... I suspect there is a third person who committed the murder if she was murdered...
On the flip side, I find it disrepectful that GBC's family have not released any official statements to the public for all the support for the kids or the search for Allison's killer/s. Wonder why?
Does anyone knows if Allison's side of the family are looking after the girls or is it GBC staying with his side?
Also she may have a BA with a psych major. To be a registered psychologist takes approx 7 years study & a year of supervised work. To practice a ma of psych or a doctorate is needed.

Can you imagine having to speak to someone you might feel killed your daughter.
I also wouldn't be thanking him in any media either. As some have pointed out where is their thanks on behalf of the girls.
How arrogant to ignore the hundreds who attended her funeral,the locals who apparently initially supported the BC's with food and such,the police and SES who have spent hours and hours trying to find justice for Allsion.
Despicable,rude and arrogantpeople if you ask me!!!!!!!!!!!!
No comment on the narky comment. That is also quite rude to say in a forum advocating the victim.
In response to a previous post regarding how it was narky for Allison's parents to leave GBC off of things etc, and it was added that even if he did take Allison's life that he is still the father of the children...
IMO, no matter how much I loved my son in law, if I found out, or strongly suspected, that he took my daughters life, there is no way in the world I would feel like including his name on ANYTHING!! I could never sit back and think "Oh well, he killed my daughter, but hey, he is still the father of those poor motherless children, therefor I will still talk lovingly of him."
I don't get how that would even be possible. IF GBC is guilty of this, he obviously didn't consider those children before he did it. IMO
Sorry but that's not correct. I am a psychologist and no where in Australia can you currently be registered as a psychologist with 3 years study and one year supervision.
A masters is required almost everywhere.
