Should all people that confess to crimes be allowed to escape before their DNA can be tested? I think not. I do not know the per centage of people who confess to crimes who are not guilty, but imagine what would have happened if had been allowed to escape before his DNA could be tested?
At any rate, when the media gets a hold "news" if it is like a soap opera anymore or perhaps like stampeding herd of idiots trying to report what the "American viewer wants to see". The news is often nothing more then a soap opera want to the episode played out in public. It's like an unreal reality show, the unrealness is created by the excess of media reporting given the events an importance over things more substantial.
Lately, I find that I am starting to get my reliable news from C-span or BBC. It seems the USA media is more interested in pleasing the soap opera fans rather than educating anyone about the world. TV news is getting really bad. I have seen this Jon Bennet on almost every channel CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News like 12 hours out of every 24. What is wrong with the American public for wanting to watch this stuff.... it's a soap opera.
I would recommend either of theses sources as being fairly unbiased: C-Span or BBC. But I have also found that it is better sources from different countries in order to see the 3D version of the world news. Most countries who have no self-interest in the news item are likely to be less.... what should I say... biased... I guess that is the word.
Anyway, I most trust my World Almanancs though for facts. I deduce my own from them. World Almanacs are compiled from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and other such sources.
DNA is so easily acquired humans are dripping with it.
Any two bit private investigater could have nabbed a sweaty shirt, a used sock, maybe a pair of underwear from the laundry, they guys jackoff rag, anything, even befreinded him and ask him if he knew a better way to cut his fingernails and take his.
Trouble is, they were so sure they had their man that they were going to pump it for all the high profile press they could and now they have nothing but embarrasment.
It would not suprise me either if he beat the current wrap of possession of child porn if he can show that he was transported to the US under false pretenses.
Even though it wasn't his DNA, he confesses to being there so obviously there were two perpetrators and he is an accessory but nothing has been done about that since if he was in the house and with her when she died like he said then he also knows who the rapist/killer is.
i also would like to know why they went after the girls mother so harshly when they already knew it was not her or her husbands DNA either.
