But will South Park apologize?

by lestro

Seems that the Ramseys officially did not kill their daughter:

Prosecutors say new DNA tests have cleared JonBenet Ramsey’s family in the 1996 killing of the 6-year-old beauty queen.

Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy said Wednesday the tests point to an “unexplained third party.”

She says prosecutors don’t consider any member of the Ramsey family to be a suspect.

Congratulations to the Ramseys. It doesn’t change the fact that their little girl is gone, but at least it clears their names.

So while that  question is settled, one has to wonder whether or not the South Park guys will apologize for their absolutely brilliant commentary on the rash of high profile seemingly guilty people getting away, literally, with murder.

In the episode, Butters’ mom tries to kill him after discovering Butters’ dad’s gay side. When they realize what they’ve done they decide to act as if he was kidnapped. The Stotch family is befriended by Gary Condit (remember him?  I think he might be behind 9/11 since he benefitted the most from it…), OJ Simpson and the Ramseys, all of whom, like the Stotches, blamed “Some Puerto Rican Guy.”

Once the Stotches come clean, the South Park guys use the opportunity to loose on the other “Murdering Murderers.” It’s a brilliant bit, but certainly now falls into the sticky wicket of slander now that the Ramseys have been cleared by DNA.

Still funny though.

So with that out of the way (12 years later), let’s get to work trying to find these poor people some justice by finding their daughter’s real killer.

Besides, we still get to pick on OJ…

    Bit late for an apology where the mother is concerned, however, as she died of cancer. Really a rather sick and disgusting thing Parker and Stone did to them, though; I hope they apologize in a manner at least as public as the manner in which they accused the Ramseys of killing their own daughter.

    DNA did not clear the Ramsey family. Mary Lacy ‘cleared’ the Ramsey family based on redundant evidence, more of the same DNA found on clothes Jonbenet was wearing the night she was murdered. This does not erase the analysis of the ransom note that indicates it was dictated by a man to woman, the absurdity of the idea that Patsy Ramsey got up and put on the same clothes the next morning, the fact that the Ramseys ignored the threat in the ransom note that Jonbenet would be killed if they notified the police or others, the fact that they lied about their son’s whereabouts at the time of the 911 call, the fact that they refused a lie detector test, or any of the other inconsistencies in the case. Why didn’t they clear the Ramseys when the DNA was first tested in 1996? Because it wasn’t convincing in light of the other inconsistencies. Suddenly, in 2008, it is?

      lol, and during the controversy, the country’s top FBI profiler, who has been working in the field for over 35 years, solving thousands of cases and training hundreds of profilers, conducted his own investigation alongside the police and concluded that the Ramseys are not guilty. He lays it out and explains the whole case in one of his books. But by the time he gave his report, the hype had become nationwide and the whole country were pointing the finger at the parents, with absolutely no credibility other than the fuel of the media.

    “the fact that they refused a lie detector test” Let me tell you something. Always refuse a lie detector test!

    Are you people insane? It’s TV people…don’t like it don’t watch it. No one should apologize to anyone. When did we all become SO sensitive? Pathetic and apathetic.

    Wow Andrea, what a brilliant analysis! Gossip, Slander, Libel, Defamation are dealt with in literature, theater, law, and all major religions. This is because is is a basic human behavior that is harmful to the social fabric. That’s why there are laws against it, and all major religions proscribe against it. Public Defamation of character destroys careers, and destroys lives. Sorry, but you and your teenage-intellect bimbo friends may get a free pass gossiping about WTF-evar behind people’s backs, but if you smear someone publicly and you are fair game for civil, and possibly criminal prosecution.
