Hi all - just stopping by quickly but wanted to say thanks to pulpfiction for sharing his/her personal knowledge and experience re sociopathy and GBC. Pulp's post add confirmation to my existing belief that Gerard is a sociopath.
These types of people are like the 'black holes' of the human world. They suck in other people's energy and give very little out. When they do expend positive energy on another person, rest assured it's not out of the kindness of their hearts (they don't have any of that)...It is always with the intention of receiving more back. The 'payback' they expect from another is always greater than any 'payout' the sociopath gives.
Boldings are BY Me BBM

"Good point sociopathic behaviour stems often from a lack of empathy given to you as a child. The child then becomes detached, cold & unfeeling. They don't experience the range of emotions we do and frequently "act" what are normal feelings for us. They lack a moral compass and have no guilt for hurting others. Hence, it would seem to fit that given people aren't born evil (or with sociopathic traits) they are deprived of empathy from primary caregivers. In GBC case it might be expected that if he was not shown that level of empathy as a child from his family then it is quite possible their judgement, empathy & moral value system is decidedly different to most other people making them potentially capable of colluding with GBC. GBC seemed arrogant when I met him and a little self-absorbed. I believe senior BC has an element of that also."
pulpfiction (post 43):
"Yes, everyone serves a purpose for them if they engage with them. They aren't a type who just gets pleasure from "being" with others. There is motive in all their close or intimate dealings. However, if they are "dumped" it then you see you the absolute volcano eruption of emotions that has long been internalized and not expresses...and that is because they have lost "hand" ie. there perceived sense of power. When they lose that they are vulnerable and very, very dangerous. They panic and freak out often. Seen it in prison many times and it often fuels DV. Btw...I'm not the one in the cage haha. "

Have recently caught up with a friend closely connected to where GBC is being held on remand. I asked how he was going and apparently he is coping but a sook.I also asked why NBC is not allowed a contact visit and its because it isnt as easy to observe and monitor a contact visit (eg bugging devices). Visits separated by the glass can be recorded . Word is they are hoping NBC will put his own hand up soon & take some of the heat. Also if its to be believed , there were more calls to NBC than released at the bail hearing . Maybe the prosecution didnt want to show their full hand too early. All just what i've heard &IMOO

Three reminders for the day:
Stay on topic. This thread is about Allison's murder. I've moved some off topic but important posts to threads about that topic here: [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=178138"]Domestic Violence - Our Stories and Information - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame]
If you have information and cannot share it, don't say you have information and you can't share it. That's actually a WS Etiquette violation called "baiting" and can earn you a time out.
This is not the chit chat thread. I've had many complaints from your peers that the last thread that was supposed to be about Allison's murder was full of chit chat. It needs to stop.
This thread will reopen in five minutes - to give everyone a chance to read this post.
Another member, maverick.au, mentioned way back police have records of texts sent by GBC on that night. I do think the video call will be the big part of prison key for him., & also for NBC or whoever took the call, if police have been able to pull the whole call up. It will be interesting stuff hearing about all of that in time to come.

The Courier-Mail understands a frantic Mr Baden-Clay rang and sent text messages to several people asking if they'd heard from his wife after she failed to return home on Thursday night. Eventually, he went to bed alone

Just drove over Mt Crosby road. Looks like they are surveying. Unmarked ute, two men lots of tripods & equipment. On the banks either side of Kholo bridge.
Hi all - long time reader first time poster. It seems that the family home hasn't been handed over as yet as the BC family are still moving house. I drove past this morning and all action at house and this afternoon not 20 mins ago the settled white 4wd out front with that famous trailer attached.
