Last week's release of never-acted-upon indictments of John and Patsy Ramsey in the 1996 murder of their daughter, JonBenet Ramsey, revived debate about one of the most discussed Colorado cases of all-time. But will justice ever be done? This reader has his doubts for a slew of reasons.

It's called a botched police investigation. Sadly, I've seen my share. The incompetent get promoted (kinda like our govt) and allow the cycle to continue. Drove me nuts. Then add States attorneys and their ASA's have learned to pad their win versus loss by refusing to take cases that take real skill and hard work to win. It's all about those wins after all. Hell some refuse cases just because it will require actual hard work. It's a disgrace what's become of our criminal justice system. That family was F'd in the head and manipulated the system. Cash does wonderful things for the evil rich.
