Let's presume for this thread that Terri is innocent. I've read that she has stayed silent and has not defended herself in a public statement on advice from her attorneys. If I am wrong about that, please correct me. Assuming innocence and nothing at all to hide..in regard to both the "Murder for Hire" or Kyron's disappearance, I think it's a mistake not to confront some of these issues. I'd like to hear others' opinions. I'm thinking , of course, of how the public confrontation of the lies being told about them, began the PR turnabout for the Duke Lacrosse team. When Dave Evans, surrounded by members of the team, faced the media...the MSM was replete with stories of a vicious beating and gang-rape. They were already convicted...the accuser was even referred to as their "victim" in MSM news stories. (the Raliegh N&O) The other teammates were alleged to be involved in a conspiracy of silence. These kids stood there that day, with family and attorneys and proclaimed their innocence. "You have been told some fantastic lies." Like Terri, they were receiving death threats; like Terri, the media was aligned against them; Nancy Grace railed about them nightly. And these kids were up against what N.C. would later call a "rogue prosecutor." But, unlike Terri, they let the public hear them....see them. They were emphatic in their denials. They faced it all and stood tall. Why doesn't Terri do this? Why doesn't she come out and tell us that she never tried to have her husband killed nor played any part in Kyron's disappearance? Stand her ground. Tell us that these fantastic lies are keeping her from her Baby K. Tell us how she misses Kyron. I think it would help her...if innocent. She should have something on record, that years from now, Baby K can see and understand "My Mom faced them all down for me." Is Terri in worse jeopardy than the Lacrosse kids? I think if innocent, she should make a public statement. If guilty, well, then...no, obviously not. But if innocent, why not call her own press conference?
