I'm sorry, I can't listen to Jim Clemente anymore. I kind of thought he was full of shit which was confirmed in his and Laura Richards' documentary "The case of: Jonbenèt Ramsey". I'm out!

The director stated during the after show that neither man or their families were being compensated for the documentary.

I Know both of you used to be prosecutors. Do you have cases about prosecutors who hide exculpatory evidences and care only about putting people behind bars? How can they have the sentiment that justice has been served in such case? Same for defense attorneys who help a killer walk away free. It is something I have trouble understanding. how people can live like that without any remorse. They can tell me they are doing their job but, what a job!

This was one of the worst stories I've ever heard. It's a true shame that these boys (9 out of 10) have no male or no positive male influence in their lives. And the fact that it is STILL happening is a true travesty.

I truly do not believe society that advocates for death penalty can be called a society that “ kills people. Why would someone execute his family of 4 members and deserve the right to live? He took away that very right from 4 people. It is absolutely outrageous. How can we find it more horrible to execute the death penalty on someone who is guilty beyond any doubt than the crime he has committed? Sorry. I just cannot get it.

He wouldn't continue to fight against aquittal because the case is pretty well known- finding an unbiased jury sounds virtually impossible. His biggest fight in court is going to be against the previous jury's conviction. Please tell me even in a strict black and white view of the criminal justice system you see that is his biggest hurdle- overturning a guilty verdict, even one eventually thrown out, is almost impossible. Of course our justice system shouldn't convict an innocent person but it happens every day! Cases are plea bargained every day in our court system with very little thought given to ACTUAL guilt or innocence except by the accused. Oh, and regarding the German woman- I don't understand why it's always been presented as "he killed one, so he killed both". I always thought it was possible he got the IDEA of the whole staircase staging from finding the woman in the Germany case.
