Recently a friend recommended the documentary Allen v. Farrow to me. It was eye opening on several fronts in comparison to the R case. First: Gobsmacked that although the case of Allen v. Farrow never made it to court the documentary filmmakers were able to review 60 boxes of reports, audio, and video. This raised the question for me why BPD cannot release additional information. E.g., there is information such as the title of the Dr. Seuss book found in the suitcase and whether the book contained the signature of one of the R family. And, just as in the Allen v. Farrow case with boxes of media items, there are photos of JB we have never seen. None of us here have ever heard the 911 tape originally resolved by Aerospace Corp. Second: So much misinformation infecting the Allen v. Farrow case, it demands repeating how much misinformation was floated so early by the R team. Third: And most importantly, imo, is how long the Rs, and until recently primarily JR, have continued to milk the media in giving interviews and developing their stories for the documentaries. Getting in front of the media was a mission on the part of Allen and his supporters. This group had a public relations team and a legal team so huge, its equivalent could have defended Caesar crossing the Rubicon. The defenders of the Rs also included public relations, a criminal profiler, and a large legal team. This brings me to the last point of the comparison. . . There is something I’ve never been able to reconcile. If BR was the perpetrator of the whole nightmare and Patsy and JR were simply caring parents covering for him, then why the decades of media. No one could ever take BR to court, the statute of limitations is past for child abuse and assisting the perpetrator by covering up the crime, why keep the crime wound open. Perhaps JR believes it does serve BR (or himself), idk. My final consideration of all the media focus was elucidated by a former FBI profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole who reviewed the public exposure in several high profile crimes. Why Jerry Sandusky Went Public | Mary Ellen O'Toole, Ph.D. Here is her profile of such individuals seeking the media’s gaze for exoneration. In my work as an FBI Profiler, I identified specific personality traits and characteristics of individuals that seemed to underpin such reckless decisions. These include: -Their cases are very high profile in the media. -They have been identified as the most likely suspects. -The individuals are icons for a variety of reasons. -They appear to possess a higher than normal degree of arrogance, narcissism, impulsivity and a need for risk taking or thrill seeking. -They appear detached from their victims. They display a remarkable lack of empathy for the victims before the interview, during the interview and after the interview. -They take on the national media in a very proactive way to persuade the public of their innocence -Their level of awareness of how such an interview might be perceived by the general public is stunningly lacking -The traits and characteristics of these individuals cause them to come across as self-righteous and untouchable, along with a sense of superiority about their own persuasive skills, intelligence, importance, and ability to dupe anyone—reporters, interviewers, and the American public. As a result their attempts to manipulate the media and the public often backfire, and they damage their own case and defense.
