    Default Real Letter to the Editor - Boulder Weekly

    Ok the people at the Boulder Weekly printed my real letter to the editor had I chosen to write one instead of a personal note to Jeff Shapiro. Confused? Me too. Here is the letter printed today.
    Yes the paper did print my letter in its entirety.

    That was personal

    "It was quite a shock to find a personal e-mail that I sent to Jeff Shapiro printed in the Letters to the Editor section of your paper. Quite the shock because my small personal note to Mr. Shapiro was never sent to nor intended for the Letters to the Editor.

    Mr. Shapiro had written a piece concerning the JonBenet Ramsey case. I read it, wrote him a quick note, and sent it to his (not the Boulder Weekly's) e-mail address.

    I would now like to take the opportunity to write a real letter to the editor in reference to Mr. Shapiro's article.

    Mr. Shapiro wrote about many colorful people who were considered suspects by the Boulder Police Department. I found that interesting and informative because I had never heard of these suspects before. Also, Mr. Shapiro proved a point about the Ramsey case. The police investigated hundreds of people in the murder of JonBenet Ramsey despite the Ramseys' belief that they were the only suspects and continue to be. Mr. Shapiro added to the long list of people who have been investigated and found not to be involved.

    As I told Mr. Shapiro, I would love to be wrong. It is much easier to believe a sick intruder killed JonBenet. However, all the evidence points to someone who was home that night. That is not just my opinion, but the opinion of many in all branches of law enforcement. I will always keep an open mind, and if evidence that doesn't defy common sense and logic is presented that proves an intruder killed JonBenet, then I will be the first to say I am wrong.

    John Ramsey commented in his book "Death of Innocence" that people on the Internet should "stick to reading tabloids and collecting beer cans,"( Page 307, H.C.). I would like to invite Mr. Ramsey and everyone who is interested in justice for JonBenet Ramsey to visit Forums For Justice at www.forumsforjustice.org You will find a large group of dedicated professionals, and, yes, maybe a few people who even read the tabloids and collect beer cans, taking time out of their busy day to keep informed and discuss, compare, analyze and catalog information concerning the case. Apparently, Mr. Ramsey doesn't think too highly of people who participate in Internet forums, but all I can say is the day that we as a society simply shrug our shoulders and forget about a wonderful little girl who was murdered in her own home is the day we are no longer a civilized society.

    In closing, I would like to thank the Boulder Weekly for giving me the opportunity to express my beliefs. "

    Editor's note: Griffith's original letter was forwarded to "letters@boulderweekly.com," by Shapiro. Boulder Weekly regrets the error.

    Thanks guys.

    I would like to add that Jeff Shapiro was not at fault for this like I thought in the beginning. The editor took full responsibility for the mess up. Jeff Shapiro forwarded several emails to his editor so the editor could look them over and see the response he was getting. The editor admitted he took it upon himself to print the letter assuming it was ok.

    My bet is we're not going to see Lizard Tongue's forked tongue slithering in our forum anytime soon, the slime.

    Smile Tricia,

    What a terrific letter! I'm glad the editor was gracious enough to admit his mistake.

    What is best about the letter is that it totally rebuts the Ramsey Whine-Line that the BPD never looked at anyone but them for the crime. Their biggest lie is exposed here.

    Good going, girl!
