I bet this sicko (what was a second grade teacher doing in Thailand?) is innocent....

I was right, btw.
As for the new evidence clearing the family, it is hard to believe after one of the worse crime-scene, allowing the family to go root around before the investigators arrived, that there is clear proof that the family didn't do it.
I believe the Boulder authorities just want this whole thing to go away, or at least blame some faceless person.
Some Portarican guy, I think.
Who the **** cares?
It's one missing child that, judging by everything we obsessively know about her, was going to lead a thoroughly ****ed up life anyway.
She'd probably be pretty hot right now.
Edit: If only they'd buried her in Wisconsin
Before you edited I was was going to say I hope they didn't cremate her.
It is one dead child.
That's why we should care.
There's lots more of them around.
We don't give a **** about a couple hundred thousand dead Iraqi kids...I'm not losing any sleep over a dead Barbie dall from a dysfunctional rich white family...
As f@cked up as that sounds, I actually have to agree.
Do me a favor, don't make prove what a callous bunch of aholes you are.
If you don't care, don't write anything.
"Hello? 1-800-BLEEDING-HEART?? Are you there??"
PAWN activity would decrease by 72.6% if the above were implemented. I might actually venture to The Lounge if that occurred.
Agree 100% Sanjuro. The death of a white child is at least 500X as important as that of a child from some random tan race.
I care that we care.
Yes, it is very sad that this little girl died. But there are dozens of kids just like her that die similarly horrible deaths every year in this country and hundreds that go missing (not to mention Silver's point). All of them are similarly deserving of note, and none of them get it. The reason the public cares about JBR is NOT because she was a sweet innocent little girl that never deserved any of this, but because we're filled with shadenfraude at the thought of this rich family being torn apart and we're perversely obsessed with the disturbing sexualization of these little girls. You may be genuine in your sympathy for her, but perpetuating this media scrutiny is just advancing the disease our country seems to be suffering from.
they already have screwed a few people; a good family friend was the first to arrive on the scene when the girl was reported missing, and she received the boot from the police force almost immediately. a handful of others have received the same treatment...it's a bit of a shame.
Boulder is a joke...in so many different ways. This only helps confirm it.
first it was 100K civilians killed, and now it's 200K civilian KIDS? we've been busier than i thought.
I'm glad they caught the ****er. I no more happy than I am when they catch any other adult that tortures and kills little kids. I am not any less sad than I am when any other kid is killed or tortured by some sick ****.
I think that was the point Sanjuro was trying to make.
What emotion will you be feeling when you realize the killer has NOT been caught.
A little combo of anger.......embarassment.......shame.....
What color does that combo make on a mood ring?
Her death was a horrible thing but in the big picture the money spent on solving and reporting the case could have fed and put 100 other kids through college. If she was from the ghetto there would have been little more than a report on the local news and a closed case a week later. In the end I care as much about the dead rich girl as a dead ghetto kit, it churns my stomach either way.
But in the line of Silver's post I have to feel worse about people killed in my name. At least then I have a rather fractional ability to do something about it.
Great. I get to live there for four years.
Well, the Lancet study came out a couple of years ago, and said about 600,000 excess deaths were caused by the invasion. Taking into account Iraq's demographics, which skew younger than the USA's do, it's a reasonable ballpark guess.
Of course, if you want to go by Iraq Body Count's numbers, it only be approximately 40,000 dead kids. If that's your argument, you've already lost, however...
That study counts in the effects of hospitals being bombed so people can't get medical attention, so it is the true casualties of war, not just those that were shot up.
I know, that's why I mentioned excess deaths.
Now, I suppose $tinkle will argue that just because we invaded and bombed all the infrastructure, that doesn't make us responsible for deaths caused indirectly by that...
no it doesn't. i'm looking at this, btw.
can we get back to dead white chics, please? i just love the way foxnews (oh yes i did!) has some forensics guy on in the a.m. getting chubbed up over giving lurid details of "dna collected from her panties". asshole.
not my fault they were too stupid *not* to make their infrastructure out of the same stuff from which they make mosques
Odd, considering how you'd normally think a Republican would be excited about collecting DNA from a pair of these.
