    “when a chance arrow of history scores a perfect bullseye on a deserving target”

    Don't think we can't read between THOSE lines!

    I would have waited an eternity for this.
    I'm as mad as HELL and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!.

    Smile steve thomas

    Does anyone know of an e-mail address for Steve Thomas or just a line somewhere you can thank him for all the hard work he did. IMO, he was the one person in the law enforcement community that really cared about justice for JonBenet. In case he reads this, many thanks for trying so hard Mr Thomas. I hope you are doing well.

    There used to be a "contact Steve" link on that website. While I have his
    e-mail address, I would never give it out without his permission. It has been a while since we last corresponded. But I am sure he "visits" us here and FFJ, so we can express our thanks to him here, and hopefully he will check in and know how much we appreciate all he did and all he tried to do.
    THIS time, we get it RIGHT!

    So would I......

    You nailed it perfectly regarding reading between the lines....and I noticed that he did not say a thing about his thoughts changing any on Who Did It!

    I realize it would not be a good idea for people to just give out an email address.I am sorry if I seemed too pushy. I was just hoping that he reads over hear sometime.

    Please, no need to apologize. You were not being too pushy at all. I am sure there are many people who would like to tell him how they feel. No matter how much he may have wanted, he will never fully be free of this case- it haunts him too much, as I am sure it does all who truly tried to get justice for this little girl.

    i too have an email address for steve (we corresponded a while back)... not sure if it's still valid but i'd be happy to forward your remarks to him if you'd like to post them here or PM me. of course, if others do not think this is a good idea, i will quickly apologize and take back the offer.


    i'm surprised the "contact steve" link has been removed. maybe he was flooded w/ mail and it was too much for him?

    It's safe to assume that there is a reason why Steve shared on the Internet...... so any words of support will more than likely make their way to Steve's heart....which is a pretty big one in my opinion, so let's keep filling it for him!!!

    Thank YOU, Steve Thomas!!!

    :U There:

    I am very disappointed. As we have seen through the years, a cop like ST with no homicide experience can leave a case very damaged to the point the truth may never be known. I know I'm in the minority here so please don't feel the need to flame. I just never believed he was credible or that his desires and personal beliefs did not influence his investigating techniques. I only want the truth. I see flaws on both sides, mind you, but bigger flaws in the BPD.

    I have nothing but respect for Steve Thomas. I've always admired him for taking a stand for JonBenet, while JonBenet's parents did just the opposite.

    We all know this was not a perfect investigation by any means. But Lou Smit also was influenced by his personal and religious beliefs when it came to the Rs, as was Lacy; that was damaging as well. I believe that ST was one of the few who truly started out neutral- he went where the evidence led him. Unfortunately, it led him to the parents. He had no agenda. I cannot say the same for the DA's office. Their agenda from Day One was to deflect all suspicion from the parents, even if the evidence contradicted it. The defense team also had an agenda- which JR freely admitted. Their agenda was to keep the Rs out of jail (not to prove them innocent). Big difference.

    There is a massive sense of frustration, Ziggy, with many aspects of this case and ST himself has pointed out various errors made by the BPD - in fact, the early parts of his book pretty much catalogue the BPD's errors. However, I really think the lack of homicide experience is something of a red herring in this case. Firstly, as far as I know, people thought he was an amazing cop generally and, but for the special circumstances of the Ramsey case, that he might have gone on to be one of the great detectives. Secondly, against a backdrop of refusals to issue search warrants for really elementary things, I think Columbo himself might have struggled a tad to bring this case to court.

    I don't know where others stand on this, but for me, the investigation is only part of the ST story. A normal, flawed person living a normal, flawed life putting his neck on the block and risking many of the things he holds dear for a principle is, to me`at least, the definition of heroism and gallantry.
