But will South Park apologize?

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.

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…
