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: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
