What a Shock

According to CNN, John Mark Karr will not be charged in connection with the JonBenet murder. It turns out the DNA didn't match. Oh yeah, I predicted this a few weeks ago. Not that I was alone. What a whack job--not only a pedophile, but someone who will confess to a murder he did not commit.

Btw, when this story originally broke almost a decade ago, I paid virtually no attention to it. But in watching very little of the saturation coverage, there is one fact that strikes me as most interesting: the amount of money demanded in the ransom note--$118,000. A strange amount to be sure, but even stranger--it is the exact amount of a bonus (after tax) that Mr. Ramsey had just received. This cannot be a coincidence. Whoever wrote this note knew this information (and likely committed the murder). While someone could have found the pay stub, it points the finger right back at the Ramsey family now that Karr is innocent (at least of this crime).

This doesn't really surprise me either. The coverage is just embarassing. There is an actual war going on. Should what this guy ate on the plane from Thailand really take precedence over that?

Um, no?

What gets me are the stories asking why "we're" so fascinated with the story. Who's the "we" here? If the public's fascinated it's because the press have force-fed this story to us for 10 years.

This story is a total snoozefest to me. Not shocking that he didn't do it, and reinforces to me that people frequently confess to crimes they didn't commit.
