    I've thought about that, too, but I can't imagine them covering up for their violating the rules or the mother's guilt in his disappearance when they started to be suspected of killing him. Not that they're official suspects, but even they admit that LE seems to have it's doubts about their story.

Bio mother doesn't see, like the bike riding type, if you catch my drift. So, who lives with her? Why weren't they willing to appear on camera? That and that infant carrier, something isn't right on that end of this whole deal.
    Bike is on this video, http://cbs5.com/video/?id=53961@kpix.dayport.com at 2:08
    NMK, I saw the bike you are speaking of. It is a girls/females bike. I just wonder if may bio moms mother lives with her.

    However, I am not certain I believe CPS outright said "you'll never get them back, no matter what." I suspect that is what they heard from a more reasonable line like, "we're starting an investigation into whether or not you guys should get them back" or something similar.

    In any case, I am not sure why the dad, who is concerned how people see him, would publicize this part of the story on his own will, as it has nothing to do with the more important story of Hasanni's disappearance. Seems odd, and ill-advised.
    In the video I saw, the part about CPS not returning the girl was spoken by the anchorwoman not Ross.

    It could if it were a stationary bike, IMO. She seems to have a problem with her eyes, tho, that makes me wonder if she would be able to ride that bike outside safely.

    Okay, I went back and listened to the video again. The reporter stated that Ross said the state informed them (he and the aunt) that they would not be getting the children back even if Hasanni came home. Odd wording for the reporter, and not verbatim on my part.

    In watching the videos from last night, this is what I noticed:

    - LR was all about "me, me, me"
    - He was angry that people questioned them
    - He was mad at how the media is portraying them and that they
    are "pestering" them, but gladly invited them into their home
    - He bragged about how great he is

    Who does this remind us of?

    Just seems to me, when a child goes missing, the parents will be the first poi. It's just a fact. If the parents are innocent, they should gladly cooperate and do so as quickly as possible to get the focus off them and onto what really happened. They shouldn't be angry that LE is asking them questions. Instead of blasting media for "pestering" them, they should be using that time to plead for the childs return. All the talk of how great he and JC were for taking them in made me ill. And the talk about how well Hasanni was doing was merely to pat himself on the back. I also noticed more past tense words when talking about Hasanni.
    100 years from now, it won't matter what kind of car you drove or how big your house was. What will matter is that you were important in the eyes of a child.

    Yes, this has bothered me all along. "This was my son," etc. Could be I am just being picky, or just might show a lack of optimism on his part, but it does stick out a bit.

    Here is a rough depiction of a 3 mile radius from the residence where Hasanni lived:

    I live in the Bay Area about 20 minutes from Rockridge and work about 5 minutes from Rockridge. When this story first came out, I thought to myself, College Avenue is such a busy street. There is NO WAY at 4pm in the afternoon that someone didn't see something! Even if he was parked on Harwood, this area is just too busy for something like that to go unnoticed.

    Last night I was watching the local 10oclock news on KTVU channel 2. They were showing the vigil and the foster parents pleading for Hassani's return. I just kept looking at the foster parents and as much as their voices were cracking and they were "sounding" like they were crying, I did not see one tear fall from their eyes.

    I am not saying that this implies guilt at all and some people handle things differently, but if my six year old was missing I would probably be a big ball of tears! Just an observation that I made, and my opinion of course, but I don't think we are getting the full story from the foster parents!

    Great post, YellowSubmarine. I see the same thing out of Ross.

    I also think that all of this is not turning out as he had hoped. He probably thought he would have a lot of support from the public and that is not happening.

    That was a candlelight vigil for Hasanni and not the place or time for the comments he made.

    Close Up of Almeda Creek

    The Almeda Creek looks fairly wide but may not be very deep - do we know if LE searched around this area?

    Thank you, sarahsgsr. I agree with you. During the video, Ross turns his face to his left and you can see from the way the light was on his face that there were no tears. Not one.

    No tears, but lots of anger. Why didn't he ask for help in finding Hasanni, thank people for coming, and plead for his safe return? Not your usual vigil, IMO. He demanded angrily for people to find Hasanni.

    Ross seemed to change from crying to anger rather too quickly for my taste.

    Here's a transcript of the linked segment from the raw video from the vigil:


    ROSS: That story has been corrected and sent to the news media. So they'll know that they're looking for. If you saw my son you would not necessarily know that he had cerebral palsy. He is not an invalid; he does not use braces to walk. They're basically to shape his feet. So what we're asking is that you . . . if you want to help -- keep our son in the news.

    (Breaks down crying) Don't let him become a picture on a milk carton five years later that you never saw. If you want to help, that's what you do. All of you, that's what you do! (tries to compose self)

    My son is just like any other boy.

    I want to set the record straight for all those who say "Oh, they adopted them. They were trying to make a way for her newborn baby. We ask why did you all care so much?" He was a damn child -- that's why we cared! If we didn't, who would? He sat in foster care for two years. His sister was in foster care for two months. And they sat."
    http://cbs5.com/video/?cid=129

    I'll go back and transcribe the video taken in the home.

    I know he is under extreme scrutiny now, but does he have anger management issues?
    I think I'd be sad if a vigil for my missing child had such a poor turnout.

    Thanks for the transcription! My brain was scrambled when I said it wasn't clear what he was demanding, and this shows it was clear he was demanding people to keep his son in the news.

    Thank you, STEADFAST!!!!

    The only thing about a transcript is that the written word does not reflect the anger and voice inflection of Ross' words.

    The good thing about the transcript is that we can see what was actually stated. Thanks!

    Marc picked up on the "ever changing story". If you've had kids you know that when they are fudging a story they embellish to the nth degree and add unnecessary details. We're pretty quick to pick up on it because WE did it as kids.

    respectfully bolded by me.

    I know you had someone specific in mind but the parts that I bolded actually remind me of the behaviors that I have seen out of a great many adults who have murdered or covered up a childs death. JMHO.

    My armchair diagnosis that carries absolutely no weight? Self absorbed, self centered and excessive narcissism. Me-Me-Me is the only tune they can sing.

    Jennifer Campbell seemed to be the only one of the two that was working. Ross was taking classes. They had a Beemer and a nice home. I have to wonder how they could have made it financially when Jennifer had to stop working shortly before having their baby. Even if Ross were to have been finished with his courses when Jennifer had the baby, a medical assistant does not make enough to support their lifestyle.

    I know Ross and Jennifer had to have been getting assistance from the state for the foster care of Hasanni and the 19 month old, but it still would not have supported that lifestyle, IMO. Something is just not adding up.

    Pressers have dropped off and that is not a good sign. Hasanni has to stay in the media and not be forgotten for a 'bigger' story!

    I have always wondered from the beginning about the beemer and the house (pricey) and the child care arrangements - financially none of it adds up unless there is another source of income??

    Also--did I read that the house belongs to JC? Okay, this is a 3/4 million dollar plus home (or was..I'm sure the value has dropped since Nov. but it still cost $783k to buy it)--how does a clerk in a shoe store manage to qualify for a loan on this expensive house?
    By Nov. of 2008, when the home was purchased (if I read the real estate ad correctly--it was posted by CHICANA in the first thread), banks were not giving out loans like they were during the crazy mortgage boom.
