Learnin, I admire your idealism about the Ramsey case, but I lost mine a long time ago. I've seen too much corruption and know too much about the backroom deals and other shenanigans that have gone on in this case. I lost any hope of the Ramsey case ever going to trial when Hunter refused to to let the Grand Jury vote back in October of 1999. Since then, I've stayed involved in the case to keep the Ramseys from winning the PR battle to convince the general public of their innocence, as well as fight their efforts to destroy the lives of innocent people who got in their way. If I thought the cause was lost back in 1999, there's been a lot more water under the bridge since then. There has been so much misinformation and red herrings thrown into the mix, even if someone, ANYONE, was arrested for JonBenet's murder, their defense attorney would have a field day and have the charges dropped after laughing themselves senseless. No DA can ever bring this case to trial because of all the contamination and conflicting stories. When the police didn't separate John and Patsy immediately and question them separately, they lost any chance of obtaining the REAL story of what happened that night. Now that Patsy has died, the one person that LE KNOWS was involved in the cover-up of what happened to JonBenet because she wrote the ransom note (and most probably, was also involved in JonBenet's death), there is no one left to prosecute unless you go after John or Burke as an accessory to murder, and that's not going to happen because you first have to prove who was the murderer. As far as I know, the Feds cannot come in and take over the Ramsey case. The Boulder DA will never give it to them as it would expose all kinds of judicial and politicial corruption that runs down the backbone of Colorado like the Rocky Mountains. The FBI tried to help in the beginning and were rebuffed. We know that from various sources. One of them is our own FFJ member, Shadow. Of course, Alex Hunter didn't want any help from the Feds. Hunter knew if they got involved, he couldn't help the Ramseys escape justice, which was always his main goal.
