    This latest chapter in the JonBenet case has been an embarrassment for the media. The amount of coverage and the type of coverage this has gotten was way out of control. 80 per cent of the problem is with the all-news channels. My God, he had prawns on the plane! Well, stop the proverbial presses. That poor young girl didn't deserve to be killed- she should have lived a long and happy life, but that doesn't make what happened national news.

    Ok, now I'm just giving this up... first I agree with Bogy about Katherine Harris. And now I agree with Billpa... who's next - jonstad? OleviaHD37? Maybe I should just quit before things go too far :)

    Certainly not, it's tragic and sickening that she was murdered. Jon Benet was an innocent lamb. National news? Sadly, yes. Her parent's affluence pretty much guaranteed that...sadly. Had this been a young, poor girl from the inner-city we wouldn't be discussing it.

    I don't know. Its been a media circus. Is this case that more troubling than others? I don't think so. But the families affluence and the "pagent" stuff for the child made it showy for the press, and they took it from there. I'm not saying its right, just the way the press behaves often. Just look how they latch onto celebrity cases.

    ON the plus side, it looks like this guy will still face charges in California for child porn. I heard his lawyer make comments today after he was released - I was left with my jaw just hanging open in disbelief. "no evidence" to justify extradicting him. What has that lawyer been smoking???? The nut admitted to being with her when she died, that it was an accident,.... But the Boulder's DA doesn't seem much better. No DNA match, so all charges dropped? Since he basically confessed, shouldn't they have held on to him until they found out if there was any other evidence which tied him to the crime? While I've had my doubts about whether he was guilty of this crime, he creeps me out and my gut says the world would be a safer place (especially for my children) if he is off the streets.

    My guess PJ is that they don't really thin he did it. If he is guilty of child porn charges (and I would not be surprised) then he should be tried for that. But this guy just loves the attention. I think that his confession was meaningless.

    Not only did the DNA not match, but it has been learned that he was at the Ramsey house five years ago, supposedly researching a book. So his knowledge of the house is now explained. To many holes in his story to take him seriously.

    Wasn't he in some legal trouble in Thailand? My wife immediately thought that he wanted to get his butt home instead of facing the Thai legal system.

    No matter what he needs to be put down. It would be nice if he just accidently ended up in front of a speeding bus!:)

    Probably right. And being a bit of a cynic, and given the email exchanges between him and that author, maybe there is a bit of manipulation and a new book deal in the works.

    What I do not understand is why the US government has not arrested "slender pasty man" (as he is called by Boortz) for a violation of this law?



    Under the PROTECT Act of April 2003, it is a crime, prosecutable in the United States, for a U.S. citizen or permanent resident alien, to engage in illicit sexual conduct in a foreign country with a person under the age of 18, whether or not the U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident alien intended to engage in such illicit sexual conduct prior to going abroad. For purposes of the PROTECT Act, illicit sexual conduct includes any commercial sex act in a foreign country with a person under the age of 18. The law defines a commercial sex act as any sex act, on account of which anything of value is given to or received by a person under the age of 18.

    That exactly what I told my mom. She had been following this on Court TV. Jumbo prawns and champaign. Rather high price to pay though.

    I would not bea ta ll surprised to find out that he is guilty ofa lot of things. But who knows if they had enough evidence on hi? The whole thing turns my stomach.
