A Legitimate Suspect--At Last

Fox News has reported that today an arrest has been made in the Jon-Benet Ramsey case.  I am astounded that I lived to see it.  Regretfully, Patsy Ramsey did not.  Be that as it may, Patsy is vindicated by these events.  The wild speculations that she killed her child by mistake for peeing the bed--what balderdash--those responsible for these rumors will have it on their consciences, if they have consciences, that is.  It's doubtful, when you look at the kind of pathological emotionalism that engenders such hateful musing. 

Sometimes policework is hard.  The Ramseys have shown themselves as individuals of remarkable character, to have been able to withstand the ferocity of the attacks against them.  May John and his surviving children find peace of mind in these new developments.  And let us all reflect on what justice requires: presumption of innocence.

And let law enforcement everywhere reflect on what should be a tenant of good policework: attention to detail and open minds.
