JonBenet suspect heads to U.S. in style

From AP:

ABOARD THAI AIRWAYS TO LOS ANGELES - John Mark Karr, the suspect in the death of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, sipped champagne and ate fried king prawns in business class Sunday after being put aboard a flight to Los Angeles to face charges in the United States.

As Karr wined and dined in style and chatted with the three U.S. officials escorting him, another bombshell emerged: Reports that Karr sought treatment at a Thai sex-change clinic.

This gets crazier all the time. And I still have my doubts that they've got the real killer, but we'll see.

I think he did something really bad in Thailand and wants to get the hell out of dodge. And what better way than being in an American jail? But you have to understand that in my opinion, the only reason American men go to Thailand is to abuse little kids so I already think he's a pervert and child rapist of some sort.

What? Me, biased? Never :)

And I remember all along they were really looking hard at the parents. They were relentless actually on them. I'm happy that it wasn't them. At least with what we know now. Stay tuned. By the way, you've gotta love how those Yankees pimp slapped the Sawks all over beantown this weekend. Remember I wanted a 4-1 scenario? "F" that! I WANT THE SWEEP!!!!

Oneida, I'm with you. Something's up with that guy, but I don't think he's the one who killed this particular little girl.

I saw a stat that said 2 million foreign men go to Thailand each year and generate over $4 billion in profit for that country via the child sex trade. Sick.

Frank: Regarding the parents, in my gut, I still think it was the father.

Regarding the Yankees, I want it all now. I'm greedy. You know it's sweet when E-rod makes an error, Big Papi hits it out and the Sox STILL lose.

Tthat guy has lots of issues and most likley need to be in jail or a mental ward. But I am not getting the "I killed JonBenet" vibe from this freak.

Also annoyed this junk is all over the paper again. With how many unsolved homosides there are in teh US why do we focus on this one. Becasue it was an upper middle class cute white kid. If JonBenet was poor and/or had a darker skin we would have never know here name. Fracking 24 hour news cycle.

I thought I was the only one who was thinking that this guy was just creepy but not a killer. And if I had to put my money on it I would still say that the parents had something to do with it.

Clone is right if her name was Boomquiesha (ghetto, yes I know) then the word would have never even known she existed. Women of color disappear every day and none of us get or gott he media coverage that this poor and unfortunate girl got.
