Today's "Give Me A Break!"

I think we all knew that John Mark Karr did not kill JonBenet Ramsey. It was all just too weird and all signs pointed to a big scam perpetrated by someone who looked scared and confused and was clearly much more cunning than people expected. What gets me, though, is his attorney's response when he it was decided that charges would not be filed against Karr. Remember...the man CONFESSED to killing the girl. He told the police in Bangkok all sorts of "details" that made it relatively clear that he was turning himself in for a murder. His attorney, Seth Temin, had this to say,

"We're deeply distressed by the fact that they took this man and dragged him here from Bangkok, Thailand, with no forensic evidence confirming the allegations against him and no independent factors leading to a presumption that he did anything wrong,"

Allegations? Did he say "allegations"? As though the authorities made this stuff up.

The aggravating thing about this is the amount of money spent to pursue this nut case. My guess is that upon learning that the Bangkok authorities had been watching him for a while, he was probably up to no good (Thai authorities confirm this) and he was scared to death of being prosecuted for something in Thailand. What better way to get out of there and back to the States - in a first class seat - courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers (by the way - a one way ticket from Bangkok to Colorado is $5900 - that's just for ONE passenger).

So, my question to the Boulder District Attorney is this...

Remember Jennifer Wilbanks?

She was ordered to pay back all funds spent on looking for her when she scammed the authorities and her fiance because she didn't want to get married. She also had to do some community service.

I don't want to criticize the Boulder authorities. Let's face it - this thing has been screwed up since day one and nobody can blame them for going to Bangkok to pick up a guy who confessed to the murder. What were they supposed to do? I just want to see them do the right thing and charge this guy with filing a phony report and costing the authorities so much time and money. Just the DNA test would have cost a fortune.
Unfortunately - my money is on them doing nothing....nothing at all.

    I agree that he should have to pay toward the costs associated with bringing him back to the US, but how's he going to get any money now--pole dancing? He sure won't be teaching or doing the nanny bit anymore.

    His family sold the rights to his story for BIG BUCKS under the guise of hiring him a "high profile" attorney. He obviously won't need one now. His "supporters" say that he is someone who has always wanted to be famous - at any cost. He should NOT be allowed to profit from this scam and any money the family got for his "story" rights should go to the authorities.

    huh.. how do you find out all this info? I didnt know all this.

    But I agree, they ought to make him pay for it. And i would think there must be some way by now to charge him with something?! I mean he is a self confessed pervert.

    Get the guy off the streets.

    I also agree that it was not the fault of the Boulder authorities. I mean the guy "confessed"

    The family stuff was in the news. To date - he has only used public defenders, which in my opinion, should be reimbursed as well.

    I did read today that they are considering charges against him for the false confession.
