    Default Fantastic new article from Alan Prendergast of Westwood One

    http://blogs.westword.com/latestword...leet_white.php

    The Whites and Prendergast will be on Peter Boyles tomorrow 7-9 am, 710 KNUS.

    Some additional posts about the Ramsey Internet subculture and DNA are going up on Thursday and Friday.

    I am unaware of anyone who's profited from exploiting the Ramsey murder over a longer period of time, with a greater disregard for the principles of accuracy and fairness, than the production team of Mills and Tracey.They truly do inhabit a different moral universe from real journalists. It's the difference between journalism and propaganda.

    BBM - Undoubtedly many here would share that view - including me.
    Another great piece by Alan. Good to see that the Whites are talking a bit more, and especially to someone that will handle the information honestly.

    From Alan Prendergast's article:
    http://blogs.westword.com/latestword...leet_white.php

    Garnett says he has "tried to distance myself from the Ramsey nightmare" over the past six years. One of his first moves was to turn the investigation back over to the police. He insists that he isn't bound by Lacy's exoneration letter -- which he's described as "weird" and "a stretch" -- and that he would be prepared to prosecute the case if he's ever presented with sufficient evidence to convict. And he's troubled by the long-term credibility issues his office has faced as a result of its treatment of what is now a cold, cold case.
    BBM
    Once again Garnett sidesteps an actual constructive critique of Lacy's baseless "exoneration" and addresses it obliquely. As I've commented in the past, he essentially speaks in whispers from the shadows.
    Lacy's pronouncement was made with fanfare in the mainstream media, and only a similarly made CLEAR pronouncement, by Garnett, rescinding the "exoneration" will do.
    Until that happens, the mainstream media will continue to dismiss any criticism of the Ramseys with the much parroted refrain that we all heard after EVERY mention that the Ramseys were indicted ... but the Ramseys were cleared in 2008 by former Boulder DA, Mary Lacy based on new DNA evidence.
    It's sad that Lacy is more of a man than Garnett.

    Thanks for sharing the article, Tricia. Can't wait to read it! Love Prendergast.

    "University of Colorado Law Professor Paul Campos declared the letter a 'reckless exoneration.' He went on to state, 'Everyone knows that relative immunity from criminal conviction is something money can buy.
    Apparently another thing it can buy is an apology for even being suspected of a crime you probably already would have been convicted of committing if you happened to be poor.'"

    Excellent. Media professionals Prendergast, Boyles, Brennan have been fearless in advocating for more truth.

    Contrast their behavior with Garnett’s behavior and statements in the article. After reviewing the GJ material with staff, he dispensed with the case (and the mess) as soon as he could, realizing it was still radioactive. He comments on his predecessor, "One of the problems that Alex had was that he didn't use the grand jury very much and didn't have a lot of confidence in it." Really? That was the biggest problem Alex had??

    Psst, within the Prendergast article AH and ML don’t exactly shimmer with integrity and genius. Anyone shocked? (Well, of course, there might be one person dismayed with the subtle dismantling of her heroine’s reputation: http://www.tubechop.com/watch/4363426 )

    Excellent, excellent article.

    Prendergast is awesome and isn't afraid to report the truth. He never drank the Ramsey Kool-Aid, like the rest of the mainstream media, but has always reported the facts in a courageous and unbiased way.

    Of course, the following excerpt stood out to me:

    http://blogs.westword.com/latestword...ite.php?page=3

    For a little while, the Whites continued to receive little notes and cards from the Ramseys, but nothing they regarded as a serious invitation to get together. Priscilla noticed that Patsy's handwriting was different, altered in several respects from what it had been before the death of JonBenét.

    And evil came in and did its thing.

    "All we want," Fleet says, "is for the truth to come out."
    I am so happy the Whites are at last speaking out.

    How fascinating to finally hear their own experience in Atlanta before JonBenet's funeral. The level of deception and intrigue going on not only when they were there, but in the distorted and viciously false retelling by the Ramseys and their hired guns in the 18 years since, is a perfect example of exactly how evil the Ramseys are.

    They used the Whites and set them up: "Call the FBI."

    Right. We never heard that before, did we?

    It explains exactly why the ransom note was written with a "small foreign faction" introduced into a fake child kidnapping scenario--with a LOCKHEED MARTIN CEO.

    Think about that. Where did those phone records vanish to, in the year following the murder while Hunter stood between the BPD and routine evidence gathering protocol?

    And why was it important that LE never get those records?

    Now we know: In the interest of "national defense", a defense contractor can have untold influence in criminal investigations. There is no defense contractor bigger than LM. $200 million can promote a lot of influence at any level of gov't.

    I could say so much, but nothing I haven't already said a thousand times in a thousand ways. What's the point now?

    I will say this: brilliant, Prendergast. Not only spot on, but just beautiful writing, as well.

    I take issue with one thing:

    If Michael Tracey is a documentarian, I'm the DALAI LAMA.

    Peace to you, my forum friends. It's been a long and bitter battle to the truth, but I now have put to rest in my mind who murdered JonBenet Ramsey.

    KK, thank you for your comments which underscored some things for me. The Prendergast article brings up, in a non-inflammatory manner, what was going on behind the scenes before the GJ was impaneled.

    At one time I thought federal prosecutors should be contacted under the statute of Honest Services Fraud to investigate. (You can review that statute here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honest_services_fraud) But when I realized whence some of the favors may have originated, it began to seem like a case which federal prosecutors would have little interest in pursuing. I’m not, and never have been, a conspiracy theorist. But there were favors done, imho, and I know these favors have already been discussed.
    _______________
    Some brief history on defense contractors like LM. It’s not my intention to divert discussion from the case but I ‘interrupt the regular programming’ to bring a snippet to highlight the power and influence wielded at a certain level by DOD contractors. In the late ‘80s on the Front Range of Colorado near Denver, the misdeeds occurring at the Rocky Flats project were being revealed. Employees at the project gave inside information resulting in a 1989 FBI raid and subsequent shutdown of Rocky Flats, a nuclear weapons production facility. The plant was managed by Rockwell International. A special grand jury was impaneled.

    The foreman of this Grand Jury stated this in a book: I am an FBI agent. My superiors have ordered me to lie about a criminal investigation I headed in 1989. We were investigating the US Department of Energy, but the US Justice Department covered up the truth. I have refused to follow the orders to lie about what really happened during that criminal investigation at Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant. Instead, I have told the author of this book the truth. Her promise to me if I told her what really happened was that she would put it in a book to tell Congress and the American people.

    Sad conclusion: Defense contractors hold so much power, that our government, even our Justice Department, yield to protect them. BTW, in 2001 the avionics division of Rockwell International was spun off to form the current Rockwell Collins. LM and Rockwell Collins are tied to one another now through defense contracts.

    Ah yes, dear old Pam “McDonald's Happy Meal” Paugh.
    Not many people can say that they had a police escort to help them tamper with / cart off evidence in a murder case, but Pam can. Wonder if they let her keep the BPD jacket as a souvenir?

    Thanks for sharing that story about Rocky Flats. Peter Boyles kept referring to it in his broadcasts after the grand jury indictments were released this past year, so I looked it up.

    HAL HADDON REPRESENTED ROCKWELL. It was an open and shut case of blatant pollution with deadly materials, but Rockwell/Haddon wiped the floor with the Grand Jury and the poor citizens who later spoke out and opposed turning the contaminated land into A PLAYGROUND.

    Yes, the Ramseys got the most corrupted in our justice system to represent them because they worked for the most corrupted in our country. That's who the Ramseys are.

    I think it would have been something to know you here, Quest, but I am afraid my time at FFJ is done, and I wanted to at least say that before I go. Keep looking, as all answers are in front of us, if only we can see through the fog of lies and greed.

    I know there will never be justice for the murdered child in Boulder, but we have told her story here, all of us who truly seek the truth. That's all we can do.

    But JonBenet has given us a gift we could not possibly have anticipated: we now know American justice is corrupt to its core. It is for sale to the highest bidder, and there is no more question about that.
