Breakthrough in JonBenet Ramsey Murder Case

Denver law authorities have made an arrest in the long standing cold case regarding the murder of six year old JonBenet Ramsey. According to FOX News John Karr, a 41 year old schoolteacher, is currently being held in Bangkok, Thailand on separate sex charges.

I hope this is the beginning of the end of the nightmare that the Ramsey family endured for so long. It's terrible enough to have a child brutally murdered the way young JonBenet was, but to be falsely accused of the crime, and to suffer the suspicions and cruel speculations over the years must have been excruciating.

When the murder first became public I recall having my own suspicions against the family, but after seeing a documentary on Court TV a few years ago I was persuaded otherwise. This documentary, (I think it was an episode of Cold Case Files), had an investigator, well known for his high success rate in solving cold cases, present overwhelming evidence that the murderer was an intruder outside of the family circle. Ever since I have had nothing but sympathy for the Ramseys.

In light of Patsy Ramsey's recent death after fighting ovarian cancer, I can only pray that she may rest in peace.


WWB at Blog PI posed an interesting observation that conservative bloggers jump on the story, while liberal bloggers ignore it. Why?

Ultimately, for the liberals, justice for the little guy does not matter. In this case, a helpless 6 year old girl. She is not a blip on their radar. Neither are the children who perished on 9/11 and 7/7. Even less do they care for the unborn. Their only relentless drive is to obstruct and destroy authority in all of its forms... the focus of their hate being George W. Bush.

It's a form of fanaticism, its adherents defined by Winston Churchill as "one who won't change his mind and won't change the subject."
