I think it's safe to assume you don't read what's in front of you. I never said YOU were satified with anyone, I said the LE in Boulder was satisfied with Smit's performance.<quoted text>
You shouldn't assume I am satisfied with ~anything~ Smit, Ramsey, or LE did during the investigation.[In fact I found Smit to be wholly unqualified for the title 'detective']You've only to read my posts in this thread to know I do not 'support' the Ramsey's innocence. I think it's pretty clear the indictment probably had it right: John and Patsy covered up the murder of their daughter.[ransome note only the beginning of the evidence for a staged crime scene]
WHY would they do that? I believe NK provided the best, most plausible answer to that question. In any other scenario,[Patsy killed her over toilet issues etc] a faked kidnapping for ransom simply wasn't necessary. A faked kidnapping for ransom, hiding the body, staging the body etc., only became necessary in the presence of evidence of sexual assault. This too could have been explained away by the parents feigning ignorance SHOCK ZOMG what stranger has done this to my child?? No, the staging was necessary because the time and place of the murder,~~the circumstances surrounding the death~~~, had to be obscured.
It's all very interesting and entertaining to think there's some dark conspiracy or a sex ring behind this, but the only one dead is JonBenet. You'd think more kids, and adults, would mysteriously drop dead or out, knowing what they know..nope, just the Ramseys leaving town and not another word from NK or her fellow abused, ever. FW's kids are fine and upstanding, so clearly he didn't drag them into the sex ring..so, why JonBenet? It couldn't just be her father's to blame, or her mama, or her jealous brother? Has to be something more sinister than that?
