“Suspect nabbed in JonBenet slaying” is a header in the JS today and later Fox News quotes the alleged killer as saying “he loved her” and didn’t mean to kill her. He said it was "an accident". Probably not, he just meant to molest this 6 year old child. The media reports that there are a lot of young girls on the streets in Thailand where I believe he was at the time of his arrest. The law is pretty lenient toward child abuse in Thailand, I hear.
All these years the Ramsey family lived under a cloud of suspicion and mother Patsy Ramsey is dead. What a horrible scenario of crimes committed and slanderous suspicions put on the whole Ramsey family. I suspect like the Iranians and the Holocaust, many people will still not believe the alleged killer did the deed and the Ramsey’s are guilty too, even if he is convicted
Credit the law with never giving up on the case? Maybe, time will tell whether they knew all along and were just inefficient or whether new evidence turned up. I hope it is the later. Credit the media? Maybe, here again time may tell. Could this be another case similar to the O.J. Simpson case where prosecution will fail to seat a non-prejudicial jury, will pick a weak judge and weak prosecutor? Will the alleged killer go free? Why did it take so long to tie him to the murder? How unfortunate.
We could not get along without the media and law enforcement agencies. However, both institutions are sometimes held as above the law themselves. When the Journal Star slandered me a number of years ago, I was told by my attorney that no slander or libel lawsuit had ever been won against the printed media in Illinois in the past 40 years. So Journalists can write what they want with impunity. The JS, being our most widely read distributor of the news, prints many errors and half-truths, some of which appear to be deliberate. Most vicious writers are Terry Bibo and Phil Luciano. Also, Andy Kravetz, JS writer, friend of the man who threatened to take my M-F head off in numerous threatening ways, couldn’t read a police report years ago that clearly stated that the man who threatened to remove my M—F in numerous ways was the aggressor, not me. Andy turned it around and printed that I was the aggressor. (To the credit of Kravetz did say he was sorry if he caused me any pain) Finally Jack Brimeyer allowed an article to be published as a correction buried on P. 11, Section B, and lower left hand corner. Even then when I was told “this mild mannered Arthur Ashe type fellow would send a man up from the Southside to do kill me, I made the mistake of replying that “I would need an equalizer” and the JS reprinted my statement insinuating that saying I needed to protect myself from a potential killer, was a no-no.
Bibo took out her wrath on me because I went over her head with a revelation that a certain fund raiser in the area was keeping 90% of the proceeds. That’s right, 90% and I can prove. Bibo didn’t think it was story; I did and went over her head. (The story never did get printed but now I understand the fund raiser is only keeping 85% of the take.) Bibo, the far left female Don Quixote writer of the Journal Star, got her revenge with a bundle of outright lies that she printed in the JS to try to ruin my reputation. She wrote an article about the black man aggressor living with a white woman both long gone from the community but not forgotten; a man who threatened my life, calling him a mild mannered Arthur Ashe, and I, 30 years older, was a rich mean racist capitalist.
Phil Luciano wrote half-truths and lies about me recently. When I called Luciano in anger unfortunately he wasn’t in so I left my message to him stating “that if A-H’s could fly, he would be a jet.” Knowing the character of Luciano, I sure he delighted in playing my recording to anyone who would listen. If he will send me a transcript of my message to him, I will be glad to print it on this blog site. The JSEB then repeated the half-truths causing me to write a letter to the editor in my defense. The JSEB did print my letter.
What has this got to do with the tragedy of JoBenet and her family? You’ll know when you have been falsely accused or smeared with half-truths by the media. (Many of you like Ron Jones, already have been) As to the law enforcement agencies in this area? They are by record, pretty top notch. So are the large majority of newspapers, journalists and publishers.
As I go door to door in my campaign efforts people often ask me why I want to be in the political eye and take the abuse. I say, I’ve been abused so much, I’ve learned to deal with it fairly well I also tell them I do it because I haven’t completed my obligation to serve the community. Also, no community leader from the Republican Party stepped forward and said they wanted to run for my position. So I’m asking to be reelected for one final term. Then I’ll be free to write on all the material in my files and learn to shorten my blogs.
