    Default "ONLY ONE VICTIM IN THIS CASE" by David Harsanyi -Denver Post, July 7, 2008

    There's only one victim in the Ramsey case

    "Touch DNA" a relatively new analysis
    12-year-old murder case likely to top DA's legacy
    DA clears Ramsey family

    Despite what you may have heard, Patsy and John Ramsey have not been "cleared" of wrongdoing in any genuine sense. They were simply handed a legal pass by a staunch ally who has once again shortchanged the genuine victim in the case: JonBenét.

    Mary Lacy, the district attorney of Boulder, has made it her mission to exonerate the Ramseys since her first day on the job. She has disregarded facts and played the media and the public for a bunch of suckers along the way. She is trying to do it again.

    Relying on an advanced method of analyzing forensic evidence, Lacy claims an unidentified man was the likely murderer of JonBenét. Lacy stated the Ramsey family should now "be treated only as victims," and apologized to them in writing.

    Lacy, as anyone who has followed this case knows, has little credibility to offer, much less any absolution to hand out — at least not until a killer is convicted. And without a confession, that's an exceedingly unlikely scenario.

    The Ramseys, let's not forget, brought suspicion upon themselves with bizarre behavior during the investigation of the horrific Christmas night 1996 murder of their daughter.

    Suspicious acts are not the equivalent of guilt, but they certainly provide authorities ample reason to be on alert.

    Now, according to Lacy, an outside laboratory has found "previously undiscovered genetic material" of a male in three places on JonBenét's clothing. This leads investigators to believe that DNA could not have been left accidentally by an innocent party. It must have been an intruder.

    So, once again, the public is supposed to believe a murderer snuck into the house undetected, killed the girl undetected, wrote a ransom note and then snuck out undetected, never to be heard from again.

    "It is, therefore, the position of the Boulder district attorney's office that this profile belongs to the perpetrator of the homicide," Lacy contends.

    Now, you may wonder:

    How does Lacy know the unidentified male is the one who actually killed JonBenét? How does Lacy know that this person's hands weren't on JonBenét's clothes before or after the murder? How does she know that John Doe wasn't assisting the family in a cover-up of the crime?

    And if this nameless individual was indeed the murderer, how does Lacy know that a family member did not assist him in covering up the crime?

    She doesn't know.

    But Lacy, one of the most incompetent officials working in Colorado law enforcement, has taken us on this ride before. There is neither the space nor the need to discuss Lacy's ham-fisted ineptitude here. She is, after all, an elected official, and Boulder voters get what they deserve.

    We must, nonetheless, recall that this is the woman who two years ago conceded she had not a shred of credible evidence tying John Mark Karr to the death of JonBenét Ramsey. Yet, she still hauled this creepy child-sex fetishist back to United States from Thailand (a crime in itself, if you ask me) and let citizens foot the bill.

    When Karr was brought back to Colorado, there were immediate calls for the media to ask for forgiveness from the Ramsey family for daring to cast suspicion on them all these years.

    But, as is always prudent in this case, a healthy dose of skepticism about the Boulder police department, the DA and everyone involved was entirely justified — for the obvious reasons that no one wants to believe the unthinkable. No one wants to believe parents are capable of some dreadful act

    We should also remember there are plenty of other crimes to be solved. Plenty of other children — most of whom aren't involved in high-profile cases — are in need of justice.

    But Lacy is in no position to offer apologizes or to dictate how the public should view the Ramseys. Because in this case, there is still only one victim.

    It's probably too late to get justice for JonBenét. Maybe it always was. But knowing where things went wrong is the first step to not going there again. **-- Alan Prendergast-Dec 21, 2006--**

    Thanks, Moab, for posting this article by Mr. Harsanyi. It's good to know there are some people out there who know the facts of the Ramsey case and are not fooled by Lacy's latest trick.

    Thank you Moab! Finally someone sees the light! I'm going to write to him and thank him for saying what so many are thinking. I love this part, "But Lacy is in no position to offer apologies or to dictate how the public should view the Ramseys."

    I think they will all start coming out and voicing their opinion. It will take some time. What Lacy did was wrong. I think there will be more than a few "not-a-fan-of-Lacy" people who will speak up.

    I him!

    In 1998, the former DA of Cass County, Texas, said dna exonerated the prime suspect in the Butt triple homicide.

    Funny the same suspect was indicted last year and will, God willing, stand trial in '09.

    Great! Maybe there's hope for Jonbenet yet!

    I think we should all write and thank Mr. Harsanyi for being one of the few in the media with the courage to articulate why it is wrong for Lacy to play God and grant absolution to the Ramseys based on such a flimsy pretext, especially since it appears she is not willing to do that for other suspects in the case whose DNA does not match, particularly the ones the Ramseys, and their cohorts, threw under the bus.

    I just went over and looked at the newspage where Mr. Harsanyi's article is posted, and he is getting slammed big time in the comment section. He is really taking some heat for posting the truth.

    All of us here at FFJ need to go over there and support him, even if it's just a line or two in the comment box.

    My email bounced. Drat.
