Latest JonBenet Ramsey News Makes Her Parents Look Worse Than Ever

Posted by Sasha Brown-Worsham on January 28, 2013 

JonBenet RamseyThe death of beautiful 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey was a tragedy that spread throughout the nation rather quickly. It's easy to see why. The little girl was precious, well-kept, and seemingly adored by her upper middle class family in Colorado. The case quickly became a national story.

In fact, it was always a private tragedy. Two parents -- John and Patsy Ramsey -- lost their beautiful baby girl. That would have been horrific and tragic enough on its own to last a lifetime. But then came the speculation.

John and Patsy weren't "acting" the way grieving parents should act. They weren't sad enough or cooperative enough or whatever enough. So much so that most people and the media began to suspect them, dragging their names through the mud in the process. Now, nearly two decades after that cold morning when JonBenet's body was found, it was revealed that a grand jury wanted to indict the Ramseys. But the DA said no.

According to the DA, there wasn't enough evidence. Because guess what? You actually need EVIDENCE to convict people.

The culture of convicting in the public arena isn't new. But it's highly disturbing. My heart breaks for the Ramseys who spent their lives (Patsy has since died) trying to stop people from thinking they murdered their own child.

Whether you think they did or didn't commit a crime isn't really the point. YOU are not the judge or jury. Just because you think you know something doesn't mean you do. Smart people know this. But most people aren't smart. And so they go with the mob mentality to hate and persecute and assume.

My heart goes out the Ramseys because they lost their daughter. No one should ever have to live through that. But then the lynch mob started in on them. The amount of hate and vitriol and judgement hurled their way over the years is sickening.

They weren't indicted for a reason. So let's try to remember that. Losing their child was a tragedy no parent should endure and, unless it has happened to you, you have no right to judge how someone SHOULD react. Let's have some respect for the law and assume that if there had been enough evidence, they would have been convicted. The end.

Do you think John and Patsy knew something more?

We will never know.  Patsy Ramsey most likely took secrets to her grave.  And I am sure when John passes, he will too.  I don't think the truth will ever come out.

There was DNA on the child that did not match anyone in the home. I think it was someone that knew the family very well and how their house was set up. But the dna shows it was not one of the Ramsey's

I watched the story (reenactment) and from that yes there were questions. However it wasn't the play back of live footage. So it's hard to say how they truly acted. Grief sets different with everyone. How I reacted to my loss may not be how they or you would react to yours.

YES YES YES Patsy did it. But she was very clever and covered it up or messed it up. One or the other. They were her parents and responsible for her well-being.And who has ever heard of a murderer that hung around afterwords and wrote a 7 page letter to explain things...surprised

Sadly I agree.

Quoting 2kids19yrsapart:

No, I didn't. But I was very young twenty years ago.
