Child abuse that resulted in death? Ramsey case back in the news. Were the parents involved? Who killed her?

January 29, 2013

Police believe JonBenet's mother abused, tortured and killed her, then faked a bizarre ransom note to cover her tracks, but they have never been able to prove Patsy Ramsey's guilt. However now it's coming out that the grand jury wanted the parents charged with murder.

But having worked in the legal system, I do know about juries, mob rule, and I support jury nullification. And I'm reminded that New York State chief judge Sol Wachtler was famously quoted by Tom Wolfe in The Bonfire of the Vanities that "a grand jury would 'indict a ham sandwich,' if that's what you wanted."

Since this is in the news, I posted these links in the news section.

So, what do y'all think?

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
